Saratoga is small-town residential community with a population of 30,000, and a colorful past. From a frontier town to an industrial settlement, from a village of fruit orchards to a residential city, Saratoga has continually evolved over its colorful 160-year history. Saratoga’s identity transformed throughout the 1900’s, as orchards were replaced by homes and the palatial estates of the valley’s wealthy businessmen and politicians. One of the most impressive of these is Villa Montalvo, established in 1912 by United States Senator James Phelan, and now a hub for Saratoga’s art and music scene. Though the industry and most of the orchards may be gone, the city retains the character of a small town tucked away in the trees of the Santa Cruz Mountains.
Saratoga is located in Santa Clara County, situated in the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains, 26 miles east of the Pacific Coast, 10 miles southwest of downtown San Jose, and 50 miles south of San Francisco. Air transportation available via San Francisco International and San Jose International Transportation available by rail via AMTRAK and CalTrain.
