    Make a holiday villa in Everglades City your home away from home

    For those seeking to get close to nature, Everglades City holiday accommodation is an oasis of calm, set in the wild and watery depths of the Florida Everglades. Everglades City villas are surrounded by islands, lagoons, rivers and swamps, so the environs beg to be explored by boat, whether it be on a fishing skiff, kayak, canoe, or one of Florida's iconic airboats. All Everglades City holiday rentals come equipped with air-conditioning to ease the hottest days, and satellite or cable TV. Most have dishwashers and laundry facilities to ensure time spent at home isn't dominated by chores, and guests can usually expect access to a pool.

    Things to do

    -Nature: The primary attraction of Everglades City holiday apartments and villas is obviously the legendary Florida Everglades. If a quiet spot of fishing or nature watching is desired, the choices are literally limitless. What shocks people most, however, is the diversity of the ecosystems and wildlife. There are seven distinct habitats to explore.

    -Beaches: While there are no sandy beaches within walking distance of Everglades City holiday homes, there are a staggering array of secluded and deserted beaches to be found on the hundreds of islands and islets lying offshore. Most are accessible only by boat.

    -Nightlife: While Everglades City is certainly not a party hotspot during Spring Break (there is a distinct lack of bars, for example), the bright lights of Naples and Marco Island are only a short drive away. What Everglades City doesn't lack, however (despite its small size and population of around 500) are restaurants. Most primarily serve seafood, for obvious reasons.

    -Watersports: This is truly a boatman's paradise: Everglades City was seemingly built for boating. Being literally surrounded by water, heading inland can take guests to the freshwater habitats of the Everglades, while heading seawards will place tourists among the swarm of tiny islands that keep this stretch of seaway so calm.

    -Golf: Naples, or 'The Golf Capital of the World', is only 20 miles away. With over 80 Championship golf courses to choose from, golfing fans would be remiss if they didn't make at least one trip. Be forewarned, though: Americans much prefer the golf cart over walking.

    Weather in Everglades City

    Florida's subtropical climate is conducive to year-round holidaying, which is testament to the state's popularity as a tourist destination. Summers tend to be long, hot and humid, but rarely reach the extremes of other popular hotspots. Temperatures max out in the mid-30°C range, while the winters regularly get into the low-20s. With the winters also being the dry season, they are curiously reminiscent of a British summer. Most of the rain falls as thunderstorms during summer afternoons and evenings.

    Travel to Everglades City

    While in Everglades City, guests can quite easily get around on foot or by boat, and if confining a holiday to this area, it's a definite possibility. Otherwise, flying and driving is the way to go, and the nearest direct flight airport from the UK is Miami International at 78 miles away. For a non-direct flight option, Southwest Florida International Airport is 73 miles away in Fort Myers. Unless including perhaps New York, it's best not to rely on public transport in America, as the transportation focus is, by far, on aeroplanes and cars.
