Located in Southern California’s picturesque coastal village of Del Mar overlooking the Pacific Ocean, L’Auberge Del Mar also sits in the heart of one of the most actively oriented destinations along the coast. This holiday season L’Auberge Del Mar shows guests they can have their cake and eat it, too, with holiday themed outdoor adventures just steps from the hotel guest rooms.
