Occidental Real Estate

Located just a 25-minute drive from the Pacific Coast, the quiet town of Occidental is tucked among the redwoods of Central Sonoma County. This tiny hamlet is situated midway along the ten ­mile Bohemian Highway drive, a pastoral route that winds among ancient redwood groves. The historical buildings on the two short blocks of the Main Street harken back to the town’s founding as a North Pacific Coast Railway stop in the 19th century. A few minutes away, the sleepy village of Freestone sits at the southern end of the Bohemian Highway. Today, the quaint shops, art galleries, and cafes of Occidental and Freestone make for a serene spot to unwind.

Secluded Occidental is the perfect destination for a romantic getaway. Located just miles from the Pacific Ocean and the Russian River, the town of Occidental is a popular destination for nature lovers who visit for the ample hiking, kayaking, and horseback riding opportunities in the area. A stone’s throw away, the even tinier town of Freestone entices with Sonoma County’s best bakery, an artisan cheese shop, a day spa, and a wine tasting room.
