The surroundings are picturesque, and there are two conveniently located centers along Alpine Road for restaurants and grocery. Portola Valley is home to the excellent Portola Valley School District, as well as private schools Woodland and Woodside Priory.
In Portola Valley, it’s not uncommon to see residents exploring hiking trails on open space preserves or packs of cyclists racing through the streets in the early morning.
