The Villas 'Florida Travel BLOG'

We love Florida and often spend our vacations and travels in the Sunshine State every year. We also love the sun and warmth that the climate always shares with us. We also love to be on the road discovering new areas and locations or to rediscover well-known. Sometimes there is the special moment or situation that sticks in our minds when we've been on side routes and narrow streets having discovered lonely places or met and talked to interesting people.
Where ever we’ve been, we've met lovely and communicative people. We talked, got hints and recommendations and always a smile.

If you love nature, wildlife, unexpected landscapes and spots, then here, in this blog, you'll find a lot to discover before starting your journey to Florida.

Naples is less than an hour from Villa Catalina Isles. The city is sophisticating with its great properties, the ride along Gulf Shore Boulevard, elegant driveways, beautiful maintained gardens and imposing mansions line the roads and you’ll involuntarily slow down speed to enjoy the magnificent scenes.

But today we head a little further south to the Botanical Gardens of Naples. The area is beautifully landscaped. [Read More…]
