Cielo Homes in Rancho Santa Fe

Discover one of San Diego’s finest resort-style communities and everything it has to offer.

Nestled in the eastern edge of Rancho Santa Fe, just miles from Lake Hodges and Escondido, is the elegant community of Cielo. This 1,740 acre residential preserve is the site of more than 500 luxury homes, private parks and recreational areas. Set on one of San Diego's highest coastal peaks, Cielo offers astounding panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, Coronado Islands, San Clemente Island, Lake Hodges and Palomar Mountain. It’s this sweeping view and exclusive setting that helps make Cielo one of San Diego County’s most desirable places to live.

Cielo is made up of several distinct neighborhoods, or enclaves, each exhibiting unique architectural features and luxury landscapes. The community of Ravello, for instance, contains more than 40 residences designed by Bassenian Lagoni Architecture, an award-winning architectural, planning and interior design firm; and precision-built by California West Communities. Ravello is one of Rancho Santa Fe’s newest neighborhoods, offering spacious, custom-designed homes between 3,496 and 5,306 square feet, and starting at just $1 million. It sits majestically along the surrounding Rancho Santa Fe mountainside, providing some of the best views in the county.

Other Cielo neighborhoods include unique, modernistic homes with spacious floor plans, custom architecture, and extravagant living areas inside and out. All residential sites are set on lush property (between one and seven acres) with gorgeous views and access to scenic gardens, natural pathways, fitness facilities, tennis courts and a private clubhouse. Residences are designed and constructed by top Southern California firms, including UDC Homes and Taylor Morrison Homes, and are neatly placed along a secluded stretch of the Del Dios Highway. Cielo and all its featured communities are gated and guarded 24 hours.

And while the Cielo community is located approximately 10 miles from the nearest town centers (Del Mar to the west and Escondido to the east), it provides a convenient commercial center, Cielo Village, which has a variety of services and small businesses, as well as an on-site fire department. Nearby school districts include the notable Rancho Santa Fe and San Dieguito Union High School Districts.


Cielo is easily one of Southern California’s top neighborhoods, providing not just luxury, seclusion and comfort, but a special kind of lifestyle that can be shared and enjoyed for a lifetime. Most properties are going for somewhere in the $2 to $7 million range. And considering how similar Rancho Santa Fe homes are selling for up to $10 million, Cielo has the exclusive, one-of-a-kind properties the scrupulous homebuyer will definitely take an interest in.
