Lafayette is one of the most sophisticated, family-friendly towns in Lamorinda: houses on big lots, amazing schools, and chic boutiques and restaurants.



The City of Lafayette is a great mix of tree-filled neighborhoods and a charming and bustling downtown with lots of shops and restaurants. Walking trails and bike paths can be easily accessed from most neighborhoods, and the beautiful Lafayette Reservoir offers a retreat for walking, hiking, fishing and picnicking. Located on Highway 24, Lafayette has its own BART station providing a quick 25-minute train ride into San Francisco.
