Welcome to Rancho Santa Fe
The area is commonly referred to as the Covenant
Rancho Santa Fe has a rich history and was established in 1928 as a country residential community with an emphasis on agriculture and preserving rural landscapes.
While the area is commonly referred to as the Covenant, the term refers to an agreement among property owners to preserve and maintain the character of the community and its landscape, and to uphold the quality of future architecture. The agreement came to be known simply as the Covenant and now refers not only to the principal governing document but also to the community itself.
