The tranquility and natural beauty of the area makes for an ideal vacation or extended stay. Some of Florida’s best beaches are a mere 12 minute drive.

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We are from the mountains of New Hampshire. We enjoy hiking, biking, skiing, fishing, boating and golf. We also love to travel and have found that Venice and the Gulf Coast of Florida are as nice as any place we have visited. When we're home, we love gardening and 'yardening.'
We look forward to retiring one of these years at Plantation Golf & Country Club.
Why the Owner Chose Farmington Vistas: The beautiful Gulf Coast sunsets, endless beaches, and friendly sunny people make you feel right at home. It is easy to lead a healthy and active lifestyle year round.
We are also avid birders and have really enjoyed the incredible bird and wild life in the area.
Getting to Venice is easy with access to either Sarasota (SRQ) or Fort Myers (RSW) airports.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: We love sitting on both the lanai and outdoor patio, sipping our morning coffee and tea, with gentle breezes in the palms and pines. Sandhill cranes occasionally stroll by as golfers work their way up the Bobcat course. We both love to walk over to the pool for an easy dip in the morning or after a day on the course. Sublime!
