The elegant community of Montecito offers a quiet retreat for the residents living there. From its inception, the rich and famous have been enticed by the stunning surroundings and relaxed atmosphere. Montecito real estate boasts tree-lined streets with luxury properties that stretch from the beach up into the foothills. Both the Montecito Upper Village and the Montecito Coast Village are interspersed with shops and boutiques and a variety of exceptional local restaurants.
