Welcome to Palos Verdes
A serene neighborhood with stunning ocean views
Located atop a peninsula, Palos Verdes boasts million-dollar views and homes. One of Los Angeles’s best-kept secrets, the town is private and affluent. The Palos Verdes Peninsula boasts a Mediterranean climate with predominately dry temperatures. Far away from the sights and sounds of Los Angeles, Palos Verdes is almost like its own little island. The rural and rocky terrain makes it a unique and stunning place to visit and live.
Palos Verdes is truly a blend of coastal and pastoral lifestyles. In fact, at the end of the 19th century, the Peninsula was solely inhabited by a few cattle ranchers and sheepherders. Homeowners appreciate the vast ocean views and extensive horse trails, not to mention the numerous lookout points and hiking trails accessible to the area. Primarily a residential community, Palos Verdes is a great place to settle down.
