One of Hollywood’s longest and best romances has been the union of Suzanne Somers and Alan Hamel. In a recent interview on “The Talk,” Suzanne said that even after 36 years of marriage, they still have sex every day. Their romantic Palm Springs home might have something to do with it. With impeccable and elegant good taste, Suzanne has created a love nest that is voluptuous, tactile and out-and-out sexy.
Suzanne and her charming TV host husband, Alan Hamel, have created an earthy and at the same time glamorous estate which is now back on the market. Modeled after L’oustau De Baumaniere in Provence, France, this compound is pure romantic sophistication surrounded by ultimate privacy. On 73 acres and set into the side of a craggy mountainside above the valley in Mesa Canyon, the couple has combined their love of nature and elegance by bringing out the best in both with their use of contrast. Imagine crystal chandeliers twinkling against natural rock and reclaimed wood . . . rough against smooth, soft against hard . . . all in perfect balance. To add even more intrigue, access is via a private funicular, a golf cart or a hillside of stone steps - but no cars. There are five buildings to explore with 10,000 square feet of pavilions. One houses the master suite, another dining and living room, a separate two-room kitchen and wine cellar and a stone guest house designed in the 1920s by Albert Frey. There is also an outdoor amphitheater carved into the mountain that seats 50, has a dance floor, as well as a pool, spa, hiking trails and natural waterfall that spills musically down the hillside.

Suzanne Somers and Alan Hamel have listed their ultra romantic, private Palm Springs retreat, asking $14.5 million. Was first listed in 2008 at $35 million.
