America’s sun-dappled southern state is a magical feast for the imagination. Big, bold and beautiful, villa holidays in Florida are where skies explode, swamplands seduce and art deco glamour takes over the beaches.
Our selection of villas in central Florida combine the best of indoor and outdoor living in this gorgeous sunshine state. Our villas along the Gulf Coast are all within easy reach of the beach, and we have a selection in Orlando’s Reunion Resort which are just a short drive from the magic of Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando.View villas in Florida Learn more about Florida
Giant coral reefs and Jurassic wetlands meet Disney magic in this epic sunshine state. Hugging the southeast tip of America, Florida is one of our dreamiest destinations for a luxury villa getaway. Quirky, colourful and heaped with personality, there’s a hypnotic natural beauty here matched by very few places on earth; colourful swamplands hide sleepy crocs and alligators in the Everglades, while delicate sandbars swirl into gloriously blue waters on the emerald islands of the Florida Keys. Head to the theme park capital of the world and a faded glamour charms while wonderful eccentricities excite; go beyond Florida’s art, culture and fusion cuisine and it’s all about the wonderful wildlife, sizzling sunsets and easy-living towns that sparkle with dazzling white sands.
Once you’re ready to leave your villa’s private bubble, there are two gorgeous coastlines and over 1000 miles of beaches waiting to welcome you back into Florida’s social scene. Well worth the efforts of a day trip out, not far from our villas along the Gulf Coast are those postcard treasures that offer warm waters and gorgeous white sands. Naples Beach is the glittering Gulf Coast gem that perfectly combines a day on the beach with a dreamy Floridian sunset. Naples’ pier is one of those iconic snaps you expect to see in Florida – jutting out into the Gulf of Mexico, this glorious pier becomes seriously epic when it’s lit up by the sky exploding at sunset. Not far from Naples is the namesake beach of Venice town. This large and sandy stretch has a lovely fishing pier, but it’s Venice Beach’s offshore dolphin spotting that really makes it something special. If immaculate sands are top priority, the blinding quartz stretch at Siesta Key Beach is just heaven. The sand is powder soft and it’s perfect for a lazy lounge, and there’s even shallow waters for the more energetic souls in the family.
Over on the east coast of Florida is the popular spring break spot of Daytona Beach. Better placed for a visit from our villas in Orlando, it’s generally busy but deservedly popular – the surf is great and the boardwalk offers plenty of all-day entertainment if you’re feeling more than just the beach, too. Head towards the south of the peninsula and you’ll stumble across the innately beautiful beaches of Miami. World-famous (and worth the effort) for a reason, dazzling white sands really do stretch for miles here, and this area gets some of the best weather in Florida if you’re fancying a proper sun-worshippers day out. The Miami beaches are a much longer drive from our villas in central Florida, so just pre-plan your day in advance if you fancy the road trip. Gorgeous South Beach is right near the city’s art district, and is a top spot for oogling the rich and famous. Combined with cute sidewalk cafés and those quintessential postcard palms, it has some of the world’s best art deco architecture lining its pristine white stretch.
Away from the palm-fringed beaches and sun-kissed cities, there’s a huge amount to Florida that remains wonderfully wild. Right on the southern tip is the spectacular Everglades – a gloriously untamed and unique wetland ecosystem where alligators, crocodiles and prowling panthers rule. Get up and out on the road early, leaving your villa for an extraordinary day’s adventure exploring this southern peninsula. Mangroves, sawgrass marshes and swampy wetlands span for miles here – not only is this national park the largest tropical wilderness in America, but it’s also an ecosystem that’s so rare it’s found almost nowhere else on earth. You’ll get some seriously stunning snaps of these unique waterways which teem with indigenous plants and rare wildlife – there’s over 350 bird species to spot and more than 20 different snakes types, plus plenty of freshwater fish and scaly natives hiding out in the swamplands. Walking the boardwalks and taking an airboat tour here is a definite must, but you can also rent a kayak if you’re feeling the solitude of the marshes.
An epicentre of cool fusion flavours, Florida’s got a great gastro scene that screams with originality. The barbecues, meats and all-you-can-eat sides of the Deep South dominate in the north, while it’s all about those fiery Floribbean flavours and slightly tangy, sort of tart, key lime pie the further south of the state you go. There’s a lively mix of Caribbean and Latin American influences that has really made Florida dazzle in America’s huge culinary palette. Conch fritters, seafood gumbo and those legendary Cuban sandwiches are sought out specialities, and there are plenty of old-style classics, too – the fried frogs legs and buttermilk ‘gator bites’ are perfect for any foodies feeling adventurous. Whether it’s a villa night in or you’re heading out for dinner, it won’t be a struggle to find any fresh fish or seafood while here. Florida has plenty of boat-to-table offerings all over the region – the grouper fish sandwiches and seasonal stone crab dishes are icon dishes, while shrimp, lobster and mahi fish are always popular on menus and in the shops.
From Cuban cocktails to gorgeous craft beers, there are plenty of delicious tipples to try while you’re here. America’s best craft beer state has more than 200 breweries scattered across the region, so there’s plenty of choice if you’re feeling like swapping your villa for a tasting of some of the best hops and ales. The Funky Buddha Brewery in Oakland Park is a great spot not too far from Fort Lauderdale. Currently the largest craft brewery in South Florida, there’s a huge taproom with enough food trucks to match, making it a great spot if you’re looking to try exclusive beers on tap.
This dreamy southern state is sun-soaked the year round, so rarely ever disappoints when it comes to planning a villa holiday here. A subtropical climate means that Florida villas have plenty of sun – but while the wet season tends to coincide with our summer, the temperatures are often at their highest at this time, too. If you’re wanting it warm, dry, and with plenty of sunny days, plan a villa holiday here between November and April. This is Florida’s high season thanks to the weather being almost near perfect at this time of year. It’s great if planning to get out and about, but just prepare for the crowds that come with it, too – Orlando’s theme parks will always get busier when the school holidays roll in.
