Rancho Valencia

Rancho Santa Fe, California

This 40-acre romantic Southern California hideaway in the rolling hills of Rancho Santa Fe has been an ongoing Burton Studio project since 1989. The Studio has enjoyed the luxury of fully articulating every phase of its development since the resort’s inception. Rancho Valencia’s award-winning restaurant, world class spa, 49 private suites, championship tennis courts, pools, and intricately detailed tile fountains are nestled among meandering walks and lush landscaping. Continually refining the concept of a classic California Rancho, our team adorned the grounds with an agrarian overlay of citrus, olive, palm, and eucalyptus groves that traverse a seasonal creek. Immediately around the resort buildings the plantings become more exotic and eclectic with a variety of year-round color and contrasting texture. The property is frequently celebrated as one of the best resorts in the country.
