1100 Bel Air Place is a 1984 album of love songs performed by Julio Iglesias, and released by Columbia Records. It was the first of Iglesias' albums to be sung largely in English, and it is generally considered his breakthrough album in English speaking markets.

The album features Julio's only Pop Top 40 hits, "To All the Girls I've Loved Before", with Willie Nelson, and "All of You" with Diana Ross. The Beach Boys sang back-up on "The Air That I Breathe", a tune that the British band The Hollies previously made famous.

The album's title is the address, 1100 Bel Air Place — Iglesias' former home in Los Angeles, California, which was owned by music producer Quincy Jones until September 2005.Coordinates: 34°05′39″N 118°26′40.5″W / 34.09417°N 118.444583°W / 34.09417; -118.444583[2]
