Almaden Valley is one of the premier neighborhoods of San Jose, nestled into the foothills and with some neighborhoods offering spectacular views of the valley and mountains!   It has sprawling homes and lots of parks, as well as well known restaurants, such as La Foret.

Quicksilver Park is huge, with abundant hiking trails that can lead you on a real adventure!  In addition to the great natural amenities, Almaden Valley has premier schools, with elementary schools through high schools having API scores made up mostly of 9's and 10's.  Leland High School, for example, is considered one of the best in the Valley, with Pioneer High School a close second - both of which are in Almaden!

From Almaden Valley, one can get to Los Gatos quickly, even taking backroads on a bicycle, as well as head south to Morgan Hill, making this a true haven for bicyclists.

Most of the homes are on the larger side in Almaden, and most of the homes on the market are no less than 1million.   There is also a small sliver of old-fashioned Americana found there each year when they host a 4th of July parade, complete with horses, old cars and floats. 

Feel like being away from it all, yet close to the action?  Almaden Valley may be the answer for you!
