Venice Homes in Florida are far removed from their European namesakes. Venice homes are more about access to great beaches, outdoor living and space and it is these three items which attract out of state and international buyers a like to the little gem, nestled alongside the Gulf of Mexico.
Offering very easy access to the cultural attractions of Sarasota and the award winning beaches of Siesta Key, Venice homes are popular as second homes and by families looking to retire to this stunning area on the west coast of Florida.
Venice is one of the few cities on Florida’s West Coast without a barrier island, the soft white sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico form the western boundary of Venice. Fourteen miles (22.5 km) of beaches from Casey Key to Manasota Key offer unparalleled recreational opportunities including swimming, sunbathing, fishing and boating.
Shelling is also a favorite pastime, and fossilized sharks teeth can be found in abundance by sifting through the sand. Golfers enjoy excellent courses in the greater Venice area.
Venice homes are typically waterfront condos and single family homes in attractive gated communities, many of which offer onsite amenities which include clubhouses and swimming pools.
