Cal-A-Vie Health Spa Vista, California 1986:


This World Class Health Spa was created between 1983 and 1986 by a group of friends who had frequented the famous "Golden Door Spa" in Escondido, California. In 1983 Glen Hampton garden designs was contracted to create the gardens at Cal-A-Vie.


The spa is nestled on 200 acres amongst rolling hills in a secluded valley just North of San Diego and Escondido in the community of Vista, California. The Mediterranean-style complex is made up of a series of villas surrounding a courtyard. Upon entering you drive up a winding road and emerge through and Olive Grove over-looking what appears to be a Mediterranean Village nestled on the hillside. The original owners went to great pains to make the complex an authentic Mediterranean setting.


All of the natural stone used for the garden walls, ponds, etc. is indigenous to the site... Every rock was quarried from the 200 acres surrounding the complex. All of the roof tiles and pavers were handmade to order and shipped from Tecate Mexico.


Landscape Designer Glen Hampton designed the unique gardens to blend rather than compete with the architecture and the natural California landscape surrounding the spa complex... The result is a secluded garden setting that instills a feeling of peace and tranquility at one with nature, far away from the stressfulness of our daily lives and distractions.
