Venice Homes in Florida are far removed from their European namesakes. Venice is more about access to great beaches, outdoor living and space. It is these three items which attracts buyers to this little gem, nestled alongside the Gulf of Mexico.
Owners have 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, Florida is one of the few cities on the Gulf Coast without a barrier island. Instead 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. Whether you enjoy swimming, sunbathing, fishing and boating, Venice could be for you.
Shelling is a favorite pastime, and fossilized sharks teeth can be found in abundance by sifting through the sand. Golfers can also enjoy some of the excellent courses in the greater Venice area.
Venice homes are typically waterfront condos and single family homes in attractive gated communities. Many of these communities offer onsite amenities which include clubhouses and swimming pools.
