Surrounded by wooded hills, this pristine and picturesque town of 4500 residents is located just west of Stanford University in a green and gold valley astride the world-famous San Andreas Fault. Portola Valley values its environmental and historic heritage, its excellent public and private schools and its economical Town government supported by a multitude of commission and committee volunteers.

An extensive trail system, scenic roads, open space and natural views contribute to one's feeling of being in the country, as do architectural guidelines that stress "blending in." These factors have enabled the town of Portola Valley to retain a rural ambiance reminiscent of earlier days.
