Make a holiday villa in Dunnellon your home away from home

For Floridian historical culture and natural wonders there's no better centre of exploration than Dunnellon holiday villas. From archaeological remains on the coast to the more modern canal constructions of the Cross Florida Greenway, holiday villas at Dunnellon can provide a serene and peaceful countryside retreat to indulge that rambling or biking itch. All Dunnellon rentals come equipped with air-conditioning to cool guests off after a hard day on the trails, while something tasty sizzles away on the provided BBQ grills. Most family friendly Dunnellon accommodation also comes with laundry facilities and WiFi.

Things to do

-History & Nature: Probably the most striking attraction to explore from a Dunnellon holiday rental is the Cross Florida Greenway; a remnant of an unsuccessful attempt to link the coasts of Florida via canal. Other, more natural wonders can be explored at Rainbow Springs National Park, Halpata Tastanaki Preserve and Crystal River Preserve State Park

-Beaches: Dunnellon perhaps isn't the destination for beach holidays, as despite the extensive coastland just a short drive away, the typical white-sand beaches of Florida are certainly not a feature. Cedar Cove Beach & Yacht Club is the nearest option, but the beach really isn't up to Florida's usual standard.

-Watersports: Nature watching and watersports are definitely prevalent as the number of marinas attest, offering everything from kayak rentals to full-blown boat charters. There are a host of nature trips and trails on the coast as well as inland, so guests are really spoiled for choice.

-Nightlife: While haute cuisine shouldn't be expected when it comes to restaurants, what is available is a wide range of rural American staples. There are a few national chains like KFC and Sonic, but the majority of eateries are one-off local joints with hearty fare in typically generous portions. The bars tend to follow the same model: simple, straightforward, and honest.

-Theme Parks: When the seclusion, solitude and peacefulness get a little much, the roster of Orlando's Amusement Parks are just over an hour's drive to the southeast. The behemoths of Disney and Universal Studios tend to dominate, but there are equally powerful showings from the likes of Sea World and Legoland.

Weather in Dunnellon

Florida's climate is well known for being agreeable enough to accommodate year-round tourism, but the summers can be a little hot for some more used to a temperate climate. Florida's extremes are far outstripped by other comparable destinations, however: typically the highs in the summer rarely exceed the mid-30s, and routinely hover in the low-20s during the winter. Most rain falls as thunderstorms in the afternoons and evenings during the summer, Florida's wet season.

Travel to Dunnellon

Orlando International Airport seems the obvious choice, at only 94 miles away and with direct flights to Europe. However, Tampa International Airport is actually a closer choice, also offering direct European flights at only 89 miles away. There's no need to balk at such distances: America is a country of cars, and such drives are a matter of routine. Petrol is cheap and the roads are typically impeccably planned and maintained. Fly/drive is by far the best option, as having a rental car is really the only way to get to see the attractions in this part of Florida.
