With a population of around 25,000, Lafayette is the largest of the three towns that make up the Lamorinda area and it offers a unique combination of quaint “village” lifestyle and sophisticated amenities like world-class restaurants and fantastic shopping. Of course, like all of Lamorinda, Lafayette’s schools are among the highest rated in the state, with excellent choices from kindergarten through high school. 

Commuters are always thrilled to learn that Lafayette has its own stop on the rapid transit system that goes into San Francisco and beyond (BART). And for those who crave being close to nature, Lafayette makes it easy: there are recreational areas within minutes of every neighborhood. I especially love meeting a friend or my sister for a morning stroll around the Lafayette Reservoir.
