Car: Recommended

Located just 20 minutes from Dallas' food scene at Bishop arts and Trinity groves. Just 25 minutes from downtown Dallas . A quick drive to the Dallas Zoo. Popular Joe Pool Lake is a 20 minute drive away where you can boat, ski, and fish. Ovilla is located just 15 minutes from Hutchins (DFW's major transportation HUB ) where Union Pacific Railroad calls one of its homes, as well as many other transportation companies. You will be surrounded by movie theaters, shopping , and your pick of restaurants within 10-15 minutes of any direction from Ovilla. If you are just looking to relax, enjoy the clean air and bright stars then you are in the perfect spot at the Villa. Enjoy a nice fire outside or in, play games and enjoy the company in this quite small town!
