Welcome to the Ranch!

With sweeping mountain and ocean views and rolling hills of citrus and eucalyptus trees, Rancho Santa Fe is located just a few miles from the Pacific Ocean and some 20 miles north of downtown San Diego.

Rancho Santa Fe is recognized by the State of California as a California Historic Landmark. The Village of Rancho Santa Fe, The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe, as well as championship golf courses, tennis clubs, equestrian centers, soccer and baseball fields all enrich your lifestyle. The original Rancho Santa Fe, called “The Covenant” (after the document that established the community) is a 6,200 acre rural enclave carved out of the first Mexican political land grant. The Santa Fe Railway purchased this in 1906 and planted eucalyptus trees as a resource for railroad ties. When the wood proved unusable, the railroad decided to develop a planned community of country estates. In 1922 the area was named Rancho Santa Fe and development began. Today, with 4,800 residents, 45 miles of horse trails and its historic Village, the Covenant , which is administered by the Rancho Santa Fe Association (www.rsfassociation.org) continues to symbolize elegant rural living.

Over the years, planned communities surrounding the Covenant have been developed, each with it’s own distinctive qualities. These include Fairbanks Ranch, Hacienda Santa Fe, Rancho del Rio, Whispering Palms, The Groves, Rancho del Lago, South Point Farms, Stonebridge, Diegueno Hills, Rancho Valencia, Del Rayo, Rancho La Cima, Stratford, Montecito, Senterra, The Summit, and Rancho Santa Fe Farms. In addition, there are the newer communities such as The Bridges, Cielo, The Crosby, Rancho Santa Fe Farms Estates and The Lakes.

Whether you live in the Covenant or one of the neighboring communities, you share in the gracious lifestyle that the original Rancho Santa Fe planners and residents envisioned.
