Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our home is situated on the Berkeley Hills, immersed in the green, close to the University, and 30 min. away from San Francisco. Berkeley is a vibrant cosmopolitan town connected to San Francisco by the Bay Bridge. Berkeley is famous for its university, cafes, bookstores, and international and california cousines. Our home is a walking distance from many parks, and just 2 minutes away from Tilden Park, a huge regional park with lakes, trails, a golf-course and horseback riding. From the quiet of our home you can explore the greater bay area and use it as a home-base when visiting Lake Tahoe, Yosemite and the Sierra.
