Located on the Western edge of Silicon Valley, Saratoga is known locally for its suburban small-town feel, wineries, and high-end boutiques. Saratoga is bordered by Cupertino and San Jose to the north, a small portion of Campbell and Los Gatos to the east, and Monte Sereno to the southeast. The City is well known for its excellent schools. Saratoga offers a high quality of life to its residents and a chance to escape the hustle of Silicon Valley.

In 1890, renowned winemaker Paul Masson opened his Mountain Winery in Saratoga, planting French champagne grapes in the rich California soil. Saratoga’s identity continued to transform 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.

The valley’s shift towards suburban and urban living in the years after World War II cemented Saratoga’s status as a residential community and its reputation as an excellent place to live. In 1956, wary of potential annexation plans from San Jose, the residents of Saratoga voted to incorporate and establish their own City government.

Willow Glen
Willow Glen is a prominent neighborhood of San Jose. It began as a marshy area with numerous willow trees surrounding the Los Gatos Creek and Guadalupe River. It was drained in the early 1900’s and planted with orchards. By the 1930’s the growth of the community made it necessary to join the City of San Jose in 1936.
