Take part in a silent dinner, during which you say nary a word while eating your meal. It helps you connect with and appreciate the food.

Junior Villas

Junior Villas are a favorite! All are on a gently rounded knoll near the Villa Pool where breakfast is served outdoors during summer, or can be requested to be brought to your room in winter. From the front door you step inside to a large sitting area with a fireplace and an alcove containing a wet bar, mini-refrigerator and coffee pot. Beds are in a separate alcove usually defined by an arch.

All Junior Villas have two double beds and accommodate one or two guests. Junior Villas are known for their large, private patios, often with great views of Mount Kuchumaa or oak groves and flower-strewn meadows.

Villa Studio

Villa Studios are the largest “studio” units at the Ranch, many accommodating up to three people. You enter a large living area with couch and chairs for sitting near the fireplace. A writing desk is by the window. High cathedral ceilings of wooden beams arch overhead, and walls of locally hand-crafted brick rise from floors of terra-cotta “Tecate tile.” Villa Studios are within easy walking distance of the Villa Pool, where it’s convenient to have breakfast in summer. (You can order breakfast delivered to your room in winter.)

Two-Bedroom Villa Suite

The Two-Bedroom Villa Suites feature two separate bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as a living room, wet bar, dining area and fireplace. These are our most spacious villas, and are truly comparable to a small vacation home. They comfortably welcome up to four people. Bed arrangements can be somewhat customized to suit your needs; please inquire when you make a reservation.

All are in the Sol area near the Villa Pool and hot tub, ringing the top of a gentle hill.

On summer mornings, breakfast is served on the pool patio. In winter, breakfast can be delivered to your room on request.

Each casita has a desk, wood-burning fireplace, and a panoramic window that allow the beauty of nature to flow into the living space. Glass doors open onto a sensual oasis of picturesque gardens, mountain views, outdoor showers, fountains, warm salt water dipping pools, day-beds, and hammocks. At 2,200 square feet of combined indoor and outdoor space, a Villa Cielo is a haven of tranquility, intimacy, and sensuality.
