How can we access the site of Cielo?
The address to reach us at Cielo is 232 chemin des Huîtres (meaning oyster road in English), in Haut-Shippagan, New Brunswick, postal code E8S 2N7.
Where does the name Cielo come from?
Cielo means sky in Spanish, but the French phonetic sounds like sky and water. The "sky" signifies the skylights present in all Pearls that lets you stargaze in comfort from the second floor. The "water" reminds us of the big window in the dome facing the beach.
We’ve named our domes Pearls because of their shape but also because we are situated on oyster road (chemin des Huîtres). Oysters are also cultivated in the Bay of St-Simon, the bay facing our accommodations. You might see some fishermen boats go by with the daily harvest.
What is your price list?
Is there a hot tub at every dome? Is it functionnal in winter?
Yes and yes! All hot tubs are wood-fired and private on your dome's deck.
