The Naples Lifestyle

Outdoor living !

Love this tropical foilage view...

Dramatic architecture !

Livin' large and lovin' it !

I'm partial to this Bermuda style...

Yes, Dorothy, you're not in Kansas anymore ! Naples, Florida is a resort town on the Gulf of Mexico, founded in the late nineteenth century... A two hour drive from Fort Lauderdale, and a one hour flight to Key West... it's a tropical paradise ! To my way of thinking there are two versions of Naples - downtown and uptown - one is older, very quaint, and the other is all very new and modern, like Palm Desert, California... an interesting dichotomy for sure. Naples attracts visitors from around the world, and is very popular with Midwestern Americans...I wanted to show you some examples of the real Naples style, as seen in these house images from current listings... Enjoy ! DF ***** PS Don't forget the SPF 30 sunblock !
