Located 10 miles northwest of the Plaza on a high plateau overlooking the Santa Fe Valley, Las Campanas is a master-planned residential community containing 1,717 home sites spread over approximately 4,730 acres.

Las Campanas has two Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses, the Sunrise Course built in 1993 and the Sunset Course built in 2000, an Equestrian Center, a full service Spa and Tennis Center and the Hacienda Clubhouse.

Bright sunshine, dry, cool mountain air and spectacular sunrises and sunsets are features of daily life here.
