Established, Low Key 55+ Condo Community of Villas de Golf Has Nicely Maintained Grounds and Overlooks an 18 Hole Golf Course
Largo is located on Florida's Gulf Coast and is the location of Villas de Lago, an established 55+ condominium community. This is a low key place but is nicely maintained.
Built in the early-1970s, the condominiums are in several three story buildings with parking in the front. On the second and third stories, a balcony extends along the length of the building. The grounds are lush, sprinkled with walkways, flowering trees and ponds. Villas de Lago is next to the Largo Executive Golf Course, an 18 hole public course, and many homes overlook the fairways.
Amenities include a clubhouse, a pool room, tennis courts, a heated swimming pool and suffleboard courts. Nightly planned activities include bingo and card games. Residents also enjoy organized excurions into Largo and beyond. The beaches are two miles away.
Prices start in the low-$100,000s, but please verify this with a Realtor or the community. Rentals are available, too.

Named Pascua Florida by Juan Ponce De Leon, the Sunshine State did not enter the Union until March 3, 1845. Balmy mild winters began attracting snowbirds to the state in the late 19th century. Retirees continue to flock to the state. It's not hard to see why tourism has become the leading industry.
International trade and citrus are also major contributors to the state's economy. Eighty percent of the nation's oranges and grapefruits are grown here, and 40 percent of all U.S. exports to Latin America flow through Florida.
Florida's landscape includes uplands and coastal plains. It contains more than 11,000 miles of waterways and about 4,500 islands spread across 10 acres.
The state has 1,250 golf courses, more than any other state in the Union. The 47 mile Pinellas Trail is the longest urban trail on the east coast. Orlando theme parks attract more visitors than any other theme parks in the U.S. The only place in the world where alligators and crocodiles co-exist is in National Everglades Park.
Florida, particularly the Keys and the Gulf Coast, were struck by Category 4 Hurricane Irma in early September, 2017. Towns will rebuild, perhaps this time with climate change in mind, making them safer and better equipped to handle major hurricanes going forward.
