Charter Travel has been sending families to Florida for many years; we have discounted fly drive rates that tie in perfectly with a selection of Florida Gulf Coast Villas at a choice of locations up and down the Gulf Coast.
Why not widen your horizons and enjoy a relaxing holiday on the Gulf Coast; the Florida Gulf Coast has some of the world's most fabulous beaches. You can choose to spend your hard earned vacation close to white sandy beaches or you could opt for a twin-centre holiday.
Twin-centre holidays offer the best of both worlds - the attractions and hustle and bustle of Disney and the Theme Parks followed by some 'chill out' time spent exploring the endless beaches, watching the dolphins and manatees in their natural habitat or heading out to enjoy the numerous water sports offered in this area.
Florida Gulf Coast Villas are located in several different areas starting at Hudson/New Port Richey which is just two hours from the Disney area and concluding at Naples, Cape Coral and Fort Myers.
These areas are quite dissimilar and offer something to suit everyone. The majority of homes have a pool and many developments offer additional community facilities.
Hudson/New Port Richey
These are the nearest properties to Clearwater and Tampa which is the home of Busch Gardens. There are fabulous beaches - Green Key, Honeymoon Island, Caladesi, Howard Park and Sunset Beach.
Water sports are available and boats can be hired in either Hudson or New Port Richey. Honeymoon Island is the locale for jet skis and canoes.
If your desire is to 'shop till you drop' then Clearwater Mall is all you could wish for - it even has its own ice skating rink! and don't forget Gulf View Mall in Port Richey. There are golf courses galore in this area, a shooting range and plenty of opportunity to fish. Tarpon Springs is the home of the world famous sponge docks and offers a delightful Greek influence with a profusion of Greek restaurants and boutiques - well worth a visit.
Homosassa State Park is a short drive north and offers you the opportunity to see the Manatee Sanctuary and other local wildlife enjoying a safe environment.
Restaurants are in abundance - whatever you like to eat you can find a restaurant that has the menu to match.
Villas in the Sarasota area tend to be in the northern part in area of Bradenton.
Many Villas enjoy fantastic views of the surrounding lakes and the area offers a variety of superb beaches within a 20 minute drive.
This popular destination gives easy access to wildlife parks and is just 3 hours from the Disney area. The soft powder, white sand beaches and tranquil warm turquoise waters entice you to delight in a swim or just relax in the warm sunshine.
A beautiful, quieter area of top quality homes just minutes from the beach.
Live the outdoor life; tall palms, tropical landscaping and year round sunshine. Whether you are visiting for a week or a month there is pleasure and pastime to match every passion.
Spectacular Cape Coral lies just minutes across the bay from Fort Myers Beach and the exclusive Islands of Sanibel and Captiva.
Naples, Everglades State Park and exciting Miami are easily accessible for a family day out. Championship golf courses abound, designer outlet malls and glamorous shopping at Gulf Coast Town Centre and Coconut Point are a short drive away. These Gulf Coast Villas are the perfect place to be if you love boating. Most of the Villas have their own boat dock and boat hire is easy to arrange (if you wish we can do this for you). You can have your very own boat delivered to your dock shortly after you arrive and collected just before you leave. If you fancy a little more night life then you can hop over the bridge to Fort Myers which offers a multitude of evening entertainment.
An ideal base for everything you could wish for.
Sanibel Island, Fort Myers Beach, Captiva and Anna Maria Island are all within an easy drive.
Fancy a day at the Everglades - this is the place to enjoy a trip on the famous air boats. Everglade City is quaint and well worth a visit.
Fort Myers offers lots of choice when it comes to eating out. Beach front restaurants famous for their fresh fish dishes, fish like you have never tasted before, they also serve a variety of popular local cuisine.
Enjoy a day 'dolphin spotting' a trip down to the beach or a boat ride will do the job. You can learn to kayak, snorkel with the fish or earn a scuba certificate with local experienced instructors. It's easy to combine learning with fun here on Fort Myers Beaches.
