clients, looking at our prices for Euro Disney, express the view that
it is cheaper to go to the USA. Therefore we felt it was about time that
offered exactly that - the only
problem is the airfare which starts at £400 upwards - so sadly Florida
is somewhat more expensive then France.
for a longer duration holiday, Florida offers wonderful family holidays
even if your interests are not based
on seeing Micky Mouse. The Gulf and Atlantic
coasts both offer hundreds
of miles of white sand beaches, exotic vegetation and wild life. There
are numerous golf courses and just keeping to theme parks
are enough to keep anyone entertained for months, let alone the average
two week family vacation.
have designed some one week holidays in hotels or apartments
in or close to Orlando, Florida that offer very high quality
at reasonable rates. If you choose car rental, it includes
everything - by that we mean local
car hire with everything included - even a free tank of petrol!
Hire - NO EXTRAS -
We hate the deals which are being offered by major tour operators where
is so called ”free car rental”. When in fact all that is being
offered is the basic rental - by the time that all the CDW extras, taxes,
road tax, airport tax are added comes to £160
per week - even on the most basic car rental. The larger the car you rent -
the higher the surcharges.

UP YOUR OWN TOUR: With
us you can also take any duration over 3 nights at any hotel or
apartment (but if you are hiring a car, you must take a total duration
of one week - otherwise it alters the
prices which are all based on weekly rentals. (extra
days are not pro rata as in Europe!)
about Florida when to go and (even when not) as well as suggesting that
you will need a week to recuperate from Orlando - on one of the sandy
beaches of the Gulf of Mexico.
do not include flights in our prices which is because there are so many
variations. For example you could fly to Atlanta, we can arrange a stopover
night and then drive to Orlando (430 miles) and enjoy the state of sweet
way and on the return take in Nashville’s country music in nearby Tennessee.
The cost of flying to Atlanta could save up to £200 per person in high
season - especially if you choose to fly mid-week from Gatwick or Manchester. We
have access to charter flights from various airports in the UK to Orlando and
scheduled flights to Tampa and Miami from Gatwick and Heathrow.

located more or less in the centre of Florida. It is the location
of the Walt Disney World Resort. Kissimmee is very close by.
is just 70 miles from Orlando on the shores of the Mexican Gulf -
Clearwater Beach itself is a very upmarket - but very busy resort
full of quality
restaurants and some very expensive and rather exclusive high rise
apartments to the south of the resort. Some 15 miles south is Indian
Rocks which is one of three resorts which are now connected together.
More down to earth than Clearwater Beach, the area of Indian Rocks is mostly
small low rise apartment buildings all of which have direct access to the beach
of fine white sand and they all have swimming pools exclusive to residents. There
is a wide choice of restaurants that stretch along the main road leading to Clearwater.
Although the choice of supermarkets is limited to family owner shopping - you
would need to travel about 5 miles inland for Tesco style offers.
It will be very busy in the high season of July/August-but it is very popular
as it is close to Orlando and the many theme parks and offers the sea breezes
as well. It is an ideal area to add an extra week or less stay on the beach or
even as an alternative to staying in Orlando as it only takes about 90 minutes
drive to Disney World.

Naples / Marco / Estero / Sanibal Islands: Located
on the south-west coast of Florida directly onto the Gulf of Mexico.
This is a totally different style from most of Florida - very well
planned and large advertising signs hoardings disappear as you
drive to the area-Naples has such tight planning laws that one
has to look hard at the side of the roads to even find a petrol
filling station as trade names are limited to five feet high from
ground level. For example - McDonalds famous arches almost disappear
from view. (no bad thing some would say!)
is part of the scene and lawns and flower beds and palm trees are
in abundance along the road sides leading to beaches and hotels.
is also strict for Shopping Malls which are single story-well laid
out and rather up-market shops. This is the part of Florida which
in winter becomes millionaire's row - as there are many exclusive
with large pools which are built behind
secure electronic gates.
summer, the rich tend to move to more climatic regions and then
the area is ideal as it offers the best beaches in the States - fine
dazzling white sand which stretches for a hundred miles. Clear
reach 85 degrees in summer - but you need to be aware that humidity
is high and with mid day temperatures reaching 100 degrees you
will need your sun hat!
In short, a very elegant region which comes
as a lovely surprise after the more shocking commercialism of central Florida
and Miami. We would strongly suggest adding this area for at least a five night
duration to any staying in the Orlando area. All our properties with two exceptions
are directly onto the fine sand beaches. We have visited them all and they are
high quality and in many cases luxury properties in exclusive areas of this region.
