Valmonte is the tree-lined area at the northern end of Palos Verdes Estates. Its homes are located on both sides of Palos Verdes Drive North between the border of Hollywood Riviera and the Palos Verdes Golf Course on the south. The area has unique home styling with a predominance of Eastern traditionals and Southern colonials. The homes in the area near the golf course and in the area on the northwest end of Valmonte known as "The Grove," for its dense eucalyptus tree growth are especially large and charming.
Valmonte is prized for its convenient location, access to the beach area and to the Torrance financial and shopping district and to the 110 Freeway for travel Downtown or to Long Beach.
Valmonte has many parkland trails. One is the trail between the city border of Hollywood Riviera and the border with Palos Verdes Estates. Residents find it a convenient path to take to the beach.
