About Occidental

Occidental is a laid-back farming town in the heart of Sonoma County. There’s a single main street lined with rather graceful 19th Century buildings and a detour-worthy farmer’s market where you can expect some amazing produce, but also musicians and crafts-folk. Occidental is especially beautiful at Christmas - they really go to town with their decorations here. The best places to stay in Occidental are an elite band, so our Guru has also included a list of the best places to stay in Occidental’s surrounds, where there are some rather lovely retreat-type properties.

  • The Inn at Occidental is a homely, welcoming B&B with 16 individually themed rooms and a cosy sitting room, a small library with games as well as books and complimentary cheese and wine.
