About Us


West Villages in south Sarasota county is a soon to be Florida’s most desirable place to live and enjoy life. We are located just minutes from Interstate 75, the Sarasota-
Bradenton metropolitan area and within half an hour of some of the finest beaches in America—along the white sandy shores of the Gulf of Mexico.

It is a city within a city with a small town feel and big city conveniences. Surrounded by the Myakka River, the Myakka State Forest, cattle ranches, parks, preserves, lakes and just minutes from the beach, you could say we have a knack for nature!

West Villages is a community made of many neighborhoods. IslandWalk at West Villages and Gran Paradiso at West Villages are the first two. Already, nearly 1,000 families call this home.

The approximately 10,000 acres that comprise West Villages will someday be home to parks and playgrounds, large lakes, walking and biking trails, shops, stores, health care centers, schools, houses of worship, offices, recreation and dozens of types of homes. This vibrant community will welcome people of all stages of life who want to live in a community that values health and wellness, life-long learning, social connection and respect for the land.
