Rancho Las Lomas
Why We Like This Place
Nestled among the rolling hills of South Orange County, the 32-acre Rancho Las Lomas is a testimony to the charms of early California. Surrounded by orange groves and flowering shrubs (kept in perennial bloom by two caretakers who live on the premises), the hacienda-style buildings of the ranch sit under the cooling shade of towering oak and sycamore trees, and are connected by terracotta walkways and bridges. Guests can take enchanted strolls through the grounds—redolent of orange blossoms and lush with botanical-garden-quality flora—and peek into the large ornamental bird cages which house a collection of rare tropical birds and exotic animals.
On a plateau at the top of a gentle slope is the Grand Salon, a spacious light-filled room with a big stone fireplace as its stunning centerpiece. The combination of white stucco walls, beamed ceiling, terracotta floor and wood-framed windows makes the Salon ideal for all types of gatherings. The adjoining patio, adorned with a sparkling blue-tile reflecting pool, makes it possible to have an indoor/outdoor reception.
Smaller affairs are often held in Rick’s Cafe, a four-level Casablanca-style villa built into the hillside just beyond the Grand Salon patio. An oak bar, rough-hewn beamed ceiling, stone fireplace, and eclectic mix of Victorian antiques in its many inviting conversation nooks create an intimate atmosphere for parties.
Wedding ceremonies at Rancho Las Lomas take place in the Teatro, an open-air theater with a marble stage, stone patio and bubbling fountains. The cozy Casa Bonita next door has full-length mirrors, makeup area and parlor with fireplace, and is one of the loveliest bride’s dressing rooms we’ve seen. Everything at Rancho Las Lomas has been carefully created, from its blossoming foliage to the abundance of hand-painted tile. If you’re looking for a simply sensational setting, this is it.
