A mountain retreat with a view of the ocean Yes, I know, I have to be different. But I like the combination of both. I love the isolation and peacefulness of a mountain retreat but without a view I feel closed in and somewhat claustrophobic. Living on the coast, there are always places that have both and I love it.
I like this question! I would choose a mountain retreat. I love the pure air and the beautiful views. In summer there are meadows full of flowers, in winter there is powdery white snow. You can also see a lot of wildlife up in the mountains.
I live near the ocean and it is beautiful on a nice day. When the weather is bad it's not a great place to be.
