Palos Verdes

Rancho Palos Verdes is a city in Los Angeles County, California atop the Palos Verdes Hills and bluffs of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. A suburb of Los Angeles, it is known for expensive homes amidst large tracts of open space with expansive views of the Pacific Ocean.

The Palos Verdes Peninsula rises 1,457 feet above the South Bay of Los Angeles County. It’s an oasis of greenery in a region dominated by concrete and asphalt. Featuring horse trails, a lighthouse, ocean cliffs, tide pools, roaming wild peacocks, and gorgeous Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island views; there is much to see and do on the Palos Verdes Peninsula.

The Peninsula is made up of four cities: Palos Verdes Estates, a mostly upscale area that was settled the earliest of all the cities (in the 1930’s) and has a country club; Rolling Hills, a gated community that has huge lots and is devoted to a rural lifestyle including horses and other farm animals; Rolling Hills Estates, a more affordable community at the North front of the hill, just below Rolling Hills, which also has a huge equestrian heritage and a country club; Rancho Palos Verdes (RPV), which wraps around “the back side” of the Peninsula and also has many homes with spectacular views. RPV has the most “tract” type homes on the hill and also hosts 3 golf courses, and the unincorporated Palos Verdes Peninsula area, which is very similar to Rolling Hills Estates except that it is only unincorporated Los Angeles County.
