Outside you have a beautiful river outlook, birds visit fequently and the area is very green. Opposite to the front of the villa is the nearest golf course.
Two bikes are available for guest use and the area is flat so bikers, walkers and joggers can exercise easily. 4 Fishing rods and a keep-net also supplied for guest enjoyment.
Environment - Three Nature trails are on Rotonda, and Two environmental centres are located in Englewood.  The library at Tingali Centre off McCall Road has loads of information on sustainability and environmental issues that are being tackled in this part of Florida - to keep it green and healthy for everyone.


Englewood beach, Stumps Pass beach, Venice beach and Bocca Grande beach can be recommended for their soft sand and swimming.

Most beaches have a pavillion where there are toilets and space to change so you can go shopping and the beach whilst keeping nice clothes clean. 
Boating including jet ski hire, fishing and captained fishing trips, tennis, horse riding and over 15 golf courses are all available in this area. In Port Charlotte there is a Scuba diving centre.
Very good local supermarkets and a farmers market fruit & veg stall can be found off McCall Road. Fresh caught fish can be found by the Fisheries Restaurant in Placida and in the white clapper board bait shop by Mannesota key bridge. 
A list of guest selected restaurants is in the villa and we particularly like the Olive Garden and the Red Chillies restaurants in Port Charlotte's Murdock Circle plaza.
Old Englewood around Dearborne Street has some quaint shops, galleries and cafes.
The Myakka State Park, Sarasota's Marine Centre & Ringling Museum are well worth visiting, Henry Ford & Eddison summer houses in Fort Myers show how the well off used to live.
Locallay at Bocca Grand on Gaspirilla Island you should lunch at the Loose Caboose restuarant and follow this by a trip to the lighthouse which has a pictures and exhibits record of the early development and first settlers to this area - really worth seeing.
Shopping - the shopping Mall in Port Charlotte and the 2 this side of Venice are excellent.
