Set amid 500 private acres in a secluded valley, this European-flavored coed health, fitness and beauty spa lies 40 miles north of San Diego. The 32 Mediterranean-style lodgings cluster around an inviting pool. Rooms feature a country Provençal décor, balconies or patios, and travertine-tile baths. “Mind Body Spirit” programs such as yoga and tai chi and extensive fitness-class offerings — from Pilates to kickboxing to aqua boot camp — complement the comprehensive menu of therapeutic spa treatments. Ingredients used in the simple, healthful dishes served are primarily sourced from the hotel’s garden, greenhouse and orchard. A 12-acre vineyard produces the Château Cal-a-Vie Grand Vin Rouge; the spa offers vinothérapie treatments. Children under the age of 16 are not permitted.
