The Southwest of Florida is a fantastic sun-drenched holiday destination with a laid-back atmosphere, and activities and points of interest at every turn.

Things to do in South West Florida

There are many magnificent beaches in Southwest Florida. They differ from the white sand beaches of East Florida, as they are more secluded and picturesque, with palm forests and fishing piers. Among the best are Lowdermilk, Naples and Vanderbilt Beach.

Fly fishing in Southwest Florida is serious business. Trout, redfish, tarpon and snook can all be caught, and if you take a self catering holiday villa in Southwest Florida, the freedom to fish and cook your catch far outweighs any benefit coming from staying in a Florida hotel.

The Everglades are an untouched wilderness, abundant in wildlife, with mysterious forests and open waters. They can be explored by foot, car, bicycle or plane, but the biggest adventure comes from getting in amongst the alligators by taking to the waters, either in canoe, boat or airboat.

Weather in South West Florida

Your home has an exceedingly comfortable feel about it and everyone is right at home immediately. The decor is charming and I got the feeling you had done some redecorating during your visit earlier this winter. The pool and dock 'are worth the price of admission'. What beautiful areas and unbelievably quiet. We spend many a late afternoon enjoying a glass of wine and the setting sun from there. I wish I was back in Cape Coral.Sandy
