For many of us, world travel is an experience to be relished; one that gives us treasured memories for ever. If you’ve fallen in love with the scenery and lifestyle of Southern Europe and want to recreate it in your own new home, look no further than Naples Florida. Here you’ll find the same warm sunshine, welcoming communities, pristine seascapes and exciting cities, without experiencing the jet lag of worldwide travel!
If you love the architecture of southern Italy and are looking for Naples homes the best place to start will be the stunning, award winning Mediterra Community. This very special community, situated in North Naples, has claimed many awards, and has just won the prestigious Distinguished Emerald Club Award for the second year running. This award, given by BoardRoom Magazine, is only given to the top five percent of private clubs in the world.
To be taken into consideration for the award, the club must provide outstanding services and facilities, including golf operations and courses, dining experiences, tennis, spa and club facilities. BoardRoom Magazine also takes into account the club’s members’ experiences and the club brand and distinctions. The Emerald Club Award is just the latest in a string of accolades given to the Mediterra community.
This enviable collection of Naples real estate has been awarded the 2013 Aurora Award for Best Residential/ Mixed Use of land Development in the Southeast Region; named as one of the top 50 golfing communities in America by Golf Digest, and for eight years running has won the Collier Building Industry Association’s Sand Dollar award for Community of the Year. So what is it that makes Mediterra so special?
One reason is the wide selection of beautiful homes. Mediterra offers single family homes, coach houses, villas and custom homes from the mid $300,000s to $7 million plus. Each intimate neighborhood that makes up Mediterra has its own warm and individual community spirit, with homes that are designed for the very highest standards of luxury living. Echoes of classical architecture and landscaping are all around you in Mediterra, again invoking the spirit of the Mediterranean countries.
More than 1,000 acres of the 1,697 acre community are given over to wide open spaces. There are miles of walking and biking trails, and several beautiful parks for tranquil contemplation. Parque Celestial, awarded the American Landscape Society Association’s Award of Excellence, is a truly wonderful environment to enjoy the beauty of Mediterra. Enjoy the sunshine on the pavilion, with views looking out over the gardens, and return in the evening to star gaze in the clear skies.
For families, the Calusa children’s play park is a great place to have fun and let off steam. Mediterra also features two world class Tom Fazio designed golf courses, a state of the art fitness center, championship tennis courts that have seen the likes of Venus Williams and Mats Wilander, and a beautiful community pool. Residents at Mediterra also have the exclusive use of the Mediterra Beach Club, set right on the Gulf of Mexico, with its own private beaches, restaurants and sun decks. You won’t have to travel far to find your paradise. It’s right here at Mediterra.
