Located about 30 miles north of downtown San Diego is the charming unincorporated country village of Rancho Santa Fe, CA. The community of Rancho Santa Fe, CA affectionately referred to as “The Ranch,” is nestled in the wooded rolling hills a few miles inland from Del Mar and Solana Beach.
A failed experiment by the Santa Fe, CA Railway Company left behind 3,000 acres of Eucalyptus trees, essentially converting the native sage scrub surroundings into beautiful wooded hills. Ranch Santa Fe’s pastoral setting is home to numerous exclusive private golf clubs, elegant gated estates, and professionally equipped equestrian properties. Here, too, is the location of the San Diego Polo Club with its five world-class polo fields.
The picturesque village center was designed with great attention to detail, and the result is the quaint collection of California mission style buildings that are the downtown of Rancho Santa Fe, CA. Against this serene backdrop is
the luxurious Inn at Rancho Santa Fe, CA and the iconic Rancho Santa Fe Country Club, built by Bing Crosby.
