The Riviera, named after its European namesake, with its charming narrow winding streets, boasts custom homes with views of the city, harbor, ocean and islands beyond. This area gets the most amount of sunlight – from early morning to late evening. Bridging the two mile span which separates Mission and Sycamore Canyons, the sylvan uplift which the padres knew as the “mission ridge” has for the past 65 years been known as “the Riviera” due to its resemblance to slopes along the Mediterranean coasts of France and Italy. Santa Barbarans lucky enough to live on this ridge attach premium value to their homes because of their unsurpassed views of the city, mountains, sea and islands. Many locals and tourists alike, enjoy frequenting the historic El Encanto Hotel which is located on the Riviera as well as some of the parks and hiking trails like Franceschi Park.
