Make a holiday villa in Hernando your home away from home

Lying near Florida's Gulf Coast, Hernando holiday villas offer an out-of-the-way option for peace, quiet, and relaxation. Surrounding parks offer great hiking and biking, while the nature preserves of the Gulf Coast are only a short drive away. Hernando holiday rentals come equipped with dishwashers and washer/dryers to alleviate the hassle of chores, satellite or cable TV and DVD players for entertainment, and are fully air-conditioned for comfort. The proximity of accommodation in Hernando to masses of lakes means fishing is also a great focus, and most Hernando rentals come with a BBQ grill where guests can cook up their daily catch!

Things to do

-Watersports: Nothing says relaxation like messing about on a boat, and dropping a fishing line while doing so. With dozens of miles of lakes and waterways stretching to the east and southeast from any Hernando holiday villa, tourists can fish and float to their hearts’ content. Even if fishing isn't a passion, wildlife watching is equally accessible.

-Theme Parks: The magnificent theme parks of Orlando are just over an hour's drive to the east, if holidaymakers hanker for a contrast to the peacefulness of Hernando. The thrilling rides and lavish shows at Disney World, Universal Studios and Sea World may not scream relaxation, but they’ll certainly accentuate the quiet life once guests have returned home.

-Nightlife: Small town Florida living isn't particularly given to raucous nights out; much rather the gentle swim of a fishing lure or the silent boat drifting through the sawgrass. That said, there are some eateries to explore. Probably the best among the bunch is the fine dining of the Skyview at Terra Vista, best enjoyed after a round on their golf course.

-Outdoor activities: Hiking and biking are especially prevalent in the numerous parkland areas surrounding Hernando. The wonderfully named Withlacoochee State Trail is a 46 mile former railroad track wending its way through central Florida, and is well worth exploring. With so many other interconnecting trails, it's quite possible to bike all the way into Orlando, 80 miles away.

Weather in Hernando

With so much wetland around, temperatures in Hernando remain quite moderate throughout the year, rarely reaching the temperature extremes of other, even more northerly inland areas. The low- to mid-30°C range of the summer and the low-20s of the winter explains why Florida is such a popular year-round holiday destination. The summers are quite humid and tend to be much wetter, however, with the rain falling mainly as afternoon thunderstorms.

Travel to Hernando

With Hernando's proximity to Orlando International Airport, it is an obvious choice for air access. The fly/drive commute is only 85 miles, so it’s doable in well under two hours; Tampa International Airport, however, is only 49 miles to the south, so it’s even more attractive time-wise. That said, the drive across the wetlands to Orlando may be something visitors don't want to miss. There is no train station in Hernando, nor a Greyhound stop, nor is there any public transport, so fly/drive is the only viable option.
