Make a holiday rental, home or villa in South West Florida your home away from home

The paradise of the Florida coastline is renowned for its beaches, cosmopolitan cities with exceptional shopping, vibrant nightlife and exhilarating activities and theme parks.

Southwest Florida is also known as a first class area for fly fishing, especially in the intriguing Everglades, a mangrove forest which meets the 10,000 islands of the Gulf of Mexico. 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

Southwest Florida has the huge benefit of 335 days of scorching sunshine every year, and even the winters are filled with beautiful warm days, with yearly lows of 20°C.

Travel to South West Florida
