    Make a holiday villa in Mount Dora your home away from home

    Mount Dora holiday accommodation puts you near Orlando and its multitude of attractions, but it's not part of it. In fact, it feels like you're a world away in this sleepy little lakeside town. Holiday cottages and villas in Mount Dora are a great introduction to that American rarity: a great walking town, with lush parkland, fetching alleyways and interesting little nooks and enclaves. Nearly all holiday homes in Mount Dora come fully modernised with all the usual appliances and equipped with air-conditioning. Many welcome children and have a water front or view.

    Things to do

    -Beaches: Mount Dora holiday rentals don't tie you to a single coast, and as you're a short drive midway between the east and west Florida beaches, you can take your pick between the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico or the rolling surf of the Atlantic.

    -Theme parks: This close to Orlando, holiday accommodation in Mount Dora certainly gives you a choice. From the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, to Wet 'n' Wild, Universal Studios and Disney World, there are over a dozen theme parks to choose from. This is a perfect accommodation choice for families: think crazy days and silent nights.

    -Shopping: Mount Dora accommodation means that even after a hectic day with the kids at a theme park, you can still have a relaxing stroll along the peaceful lakeside boardwalk in the evenings. This area is great for browsing little boutique shops and enjoying a spot of antiquing.

    -Nightlife: Though relaxed, as you might expect, the nightlife here is characterised by a surprising amount of dining and drinking options. The Frosty Mug kills two birds with one stone: a downstairs Scandinavian-styled restaurant with great food and ambience; and The Vicking Lounge upstairs for getting your drink on. The One Flight Up Cafe is also recommended for its scenic overview of the town.

    -History: You can take a great historic tour through Mount Dora on the Mount Dora Road Trolley, a wonderful street car. It leaves from Lakeside Inn, which is a destination in itself, with century-old decor and ambience. You can also take a lake cruise from its dock, or simply chill on the veranda on an old-style rocking chair, drink in hand.

    Weather in Mount Dora

    Florida's climate is a fairly temperate one, despite what you might expect. So much water around moderates the highs and lows of summer and winter, meaning Florida never really turns into the furnaces you find in other summer holiday hotspots. The subtropical summers are long, hot, wet and humid, with temperatures maxing out the mid-30°C mark. Winters are much drier, with top temperatures above 20°C, making Mount Dora a perfect year-round choice.

    Travel to Mount Dora

    It's tremendously easy to get to Mount Dora thanks to the proximity of Orlando International Airport, at only 43 miles away. If you're after a quick, quiet break in Mount Dora itself, you could even possibly do without a hire car, and simply taxi or shuttle to the airport. However, if you want to get around conveniently at all, a car is a must. There is a bus system in Orlando, but public transport anywhere outside New York or Chicago is typically a thankless chore, and best to be avoided. Greyhound and Amtrak both have stations in Orlando.
