Yes, it’s here again. The holiday season is upon us. Whether you’re enjoying a small gathering, planning a party, want to get straight to the food (everyone’s favorite part of the holidays!), shopping the sales, or hosting friends and family this holiday season, Ave Maria residents and guests alike love the big city conveniences and hometown goodness that can be found in Ave Maria.
Small Town Charm
The community is centered around a charming Town Center where weekly Farmers Markets are held every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Shoppers can expect to find fresh locally grown produce and citrus, fresh seafood, Italian breads, local honey, soaps, candles, oils, jewelry, crafts, flowers, hats, handbags, clothing and more. Home to restaurants, boutique shops, and salons to name a few, the Town Center provides residents with many of life’s necessities.
Unique experiences can be found in a visit to the Mother Teresa Museum or a tour of the stunning Ave Maria Oratory. And of course, an adventure safari tour in one of the Orange Jeep Tours is a great way to see private lands of the Collier family, namesake of Collier County.
Ave Maria offers several styles of homes including single family residences with 2-6 bedrooms featuring lake, preserve, and golf course views. Amenities include an onsite waterpark, Panther Run Golf Club, tennis and bocce, Publix grocery market, private schools, and University, and sports fields and playgrounds.
Just a two-hour drive away from major metropolitan cities such as Miami and Fort Lauderdale, Ave Maria is also only 30 minutes away, from all the treasures of Naples, Florida: shopping, dining, and attractions such as Artis Naples Philharmonic, Sugden Community Theatre, and the Naples Pier with its sugar-sand beaches.
