True to the name CIELO, meaning “sky” or “heavens,” this rarified, hillside village above Rancho Santa Fe commands mesmerizing views reminiscent of Tuscan farmlands and vineyards.
Rancho Santa Fe’s Exclusive Hillside Village —Welcome to CIELO
CIELO’s 1,740 acre residential land preserve offers 528 custom home sites and luxury residences. A dramatic terrain reaches elevations of over 1,430 feet providing expansive views. More than 60 percent of the 1,740 acres that make up CIELO is dedicated open space.
Paying homage to the region’s romantic, historic roots, CIELO’s cobble walls, stone clad entries and artisan architecture integrate seamlessly with the magnificent terrain. Bathed in prevailing coastal breezes, residents can enjoy endlessly changing views of the pastoral hills and valleys below—morning ’til night. Estate homes are artfully designed to reflect the warmth and timeless beauty of European villas—grand indoor-outdoor living spaces; stunning use of stones, metals and woods; finely crafted elevations and native plantings.
Adding to its exclusive lifestyle is Club Cielo and inviting Cielo Park. Best of all, a brief drive through stands of eucalyptus leads to the elegant, world class village of Rancho Santa Fe. Here, legendary restaurants, quaint shops, an historic inn and the exemplary Rancho Santa School District offer uptown services in a refined country setting.
Providing the utmost in security and privacy for residents, the Gate House offers a 24-hour guarded entrance off Del Dios Highway.
Recreational amenities at CIELO include the residents-only Club Cielo. Located at the heart of the village, the club’s 8,000 square feet include multiple entertainment areas with catering kitchen; fully equipped fitness center; aerobic studio; shower and locker rooms; competitive-sized swimming pool and spa; children’s pool and play area; two tennis courts.
Residents also enjoy Cielo Park’s 1.5 acres that includes basketball court, sand volleyball court, children’s climbing wall, picnic pavilion and play field.
An added convenience for residents of CIELO, Cielo Village is nestled among rolling hills at the communities entrance offering 50,000 square feet of office, retail and restaurant space. Designed by Fehlman Labarre in the flavor of an old Italian village, Cielo Village features a central gently sloping piazza complete with fountain, outdoor dining and decorative potted flowers. The professional spaces are clustered around this central, Tuscan -style plaza, which serves as a central gathering place and focal point within the Rancho Santa Fe community.
In addition, CIELO is a shelter-in-place community, with all architecture and landscaping in accordance with strict fire district standards that benefit homeowners in the event of a wildfire. Because of the hard work of local firefighters and the community’s adherence to shelter-in-place guidelines, not one home at CIELO was compromised by the wildfires that swept through the area in Fall 2007.
