Enjoy the Naples Lifestyle with Maintenance Free Villa Living

by Arelys Alexander

If you’re looking for a luxury home to spend the best years of your life following retirement, look no further than the maintenance free living found at Mediterra, recently named Best Retirement Community in Florida by Best Retirement Destinations.  At Mediterra, we have luxury custom homes to fulfill your every need, from large estate homes to luxury villas, but it’s our maintenance free villa homes that have been causing a stir and enticing the prospective homeowners visiting our new home community.

Our maintenance free villa homes in Cabreo and Lucarno are perfect for the couple looking to resize their home after the children have left and fit right into the luxury living lifestyle to which they have become accustomed.  They also have the added perk of providing a casual and carefree lifestyle.  Here are just a few reasons why villa living is the perfect choice for you:

Maintenance Free Living

Time is of the essence.  You’ve spent your time with hard work, dedication, and preparations for the future.  Now, you can spend less time worrying about the maintenance of your home by choosing a maintenance-free neighborhood with exterior and landscape care provided.  Throw away that list of landscape companies and revel in the many amenities available in your new home community.  Mediterra offers casual and fine dining prepared by an award-winning staff, a round of golf on one of our two Tom Fazio-designed golf courses, or work up a sweat at our state-of-the-art fitness center.


Living in a villa is a great way to enjoy your luxurious lifestyle in private.  Different from the close quarters found in condo living, a villa offers the stand-alone space of a single-family home with the convenient size of a large condo.  Villas also often come with a courtyard, allowing homeowners to enjoy Mother Nature at her finest in the peace and privacy of their courtyard walls.

Beauty Abounds

Speaking of courtyards, villas also provide homeowners with a space where they can enhance the beauty of their outdoor living with a water feature, a fireplace, a quaint seating area, and flowers and foliage.  Flowers and foliage not only fill the space with enchanting scents carried by the natural airflow; they can also attract birds and butterflies for a true, relaxed garden feel.

Villas in Mediterra come with or without courtyards, but they all have the advantage of being located in our lakeside neighborhoods of Cabreo and Lucarno.  These neighborhoods offer views of glistening lakes overlooking lush gardens for a refreshingly quaint locale.  Here is a list of our current Mediterra homes for sale that fit into the villa lifestyle:


Enjoy the Naples lifestyle in the Angelica in Cabreo at Mediterra.

The Angelica is one of villa home plans in London Bay Homes’ newest villa neighborhood of Cabreo.  The maintenance-free home features 2,810 square feet under air with three bedrooms, plus a den, and three bathrooms.  The Great Room, Dining Room, and Master Bedroom open up to the outdoor living area with a pool overlooking a glistening lake. The outdoor living space, covered entry, and two-car garage bring the Angelica model to 4,087 total square feet.

Offered as a semi-furnished home, the Angelica features designer finishes throughout with designer furnishings added to the main living areas by Romanza Interior Design.  This design was provided to allow the future homeowner to design the more personal living space using their individual style.  The Angelica is priced at $1,330,000.


Maintenance Free Villa Home: The Eloro in Lucarno at Mediterra.

The Eloro is a three bedroom, three-and-one-half bathroom villa home featuring 3,380 square feet of air-conditioned space.  The furnished model is situated in the middle of a cul-de-sac and joins many other lakeview homes in this charming neighborhood.  The villa home features a study and a great room, which opens up to the home’s outdoor living space through the use of 18-foot pocketing sliding glass doors.  The integrated space guides guests to the covered outdoor living and dining areas, a summer kitchen with a Wolf grill and Sub-Zero refrigerator, and a custom pool and spa.  The Eloro is priced at $2,133,720.
