The Windsor Palms resort, the ‘little sister’ of Windsor Hills, is actually the older, smaller and more luxurious of the two developments which are located in the countryside of the Kissimmee area of Orlando, Florida. The Windsor Palms resort is a wonderfully relaxing place to stay, surrounded by top of the range comfort and just a few miles from the world famous attractions which have put Orlando at the fore-front of global holiday destinations.
There is a huge amount to do in the development itself. Windsor Palms boasts a gym, Olympic sized swimming pool, spa facilities, basket ball courts, beach volleyball courts, billiards rooms, a fifty seat cinema and floodlit tennis courts. No other housing development of the region has anywhere near as much to do as Windsor Palms, meaning you do not even have to leave the complex in order to have a rewarding, relaxing holiday.
Located just two minutes from the restaurant, shop and market laden US 192, and just over 3km from the front gate of the infamous Walt Disney World Resort, there is no shortage of entertainment available from a Windsor Palms villa. Sea World, Universal Studios, Magic Kingdom and all the attractions of International Drive are within half an hour of a Windsor Palms villa too.
As with many regions of Florida, golf is a hugely popular activity in the Windsor Palms resort, Florida. There are many great courses in the area, but the closest and possibly the finest in the region is the huge Mystic Dunes Golf Course. Those staying in Windsor Palms villas often get a concession on green fees, and it is very easy to reach from the park.
Lake Kissimmee is a wonderful place for recreation. Whilst many people visiting will happily spend the afternoon strolling around its banks or relaxing on the grass, there is plenty for the more active to enjoy. Walking and cycling are hugely popular activities, whilst fishing and water skiing also thrive on the lake.
Many people think of Orlando as one big theme park, but travelling to the city of Orlando from your self catering Windsor Palms holiday rental should help give you an idea of all the many things to do in the region. The historic centre of the city of Orlando has some wonderful places to visit, with some excellent theatrical performances occurring in the Orlando Arena throughout the year. There are no end of huge shopping malls, excellent municipal museums and top class sporting facilities in Orlando too.
The climate of Florida, ‘the sunshine state’ is well documented. With gloriously hot, dry summers and incredibly mild, dry winters, there really is very little chance the weather will be poor during your Windsor Palms holiday. In summer, temperatures average an amazing 32˚C, and in winter, temperatures are around 21˚C.
As renting a hire car is an essential activity for enjoying a Windsor Palms villa holiday, reaching your Windsor Palms villa is relatively easy. There are regular flights from the UK direct to Orlando International Airport (MCO), from which you can hire a car and drive to Windsor Palms in just 35 minutes.
