From the outside, Auberge’s sandstone-colored villas, scattered among 33 acres of olive groves, evoke the terraced houses of the French Riviera; inside, the 50 rooms continue the theme with Balinese recycled wood floors and rattan ceiling fans, fabrics in Mediterranean hues, wood-burning fireplaces, and French doors leading to private verandas. The treatments at the 7,000-square-foot spa all incorporate ingredients harvested from the local hillsides (an especially delicious option: the Meyer lemon and olive oil massage). And the hotel’s eponymous restaurant—serving seasonal, regionally sourced dishes like orange glazed suckling pig with broccoli rabe, peanuts, and pickled mustard seed—still packs in the foodies, as it has for a quarter-century.
