Villa Adriana's artistry and design is certain to provide you with memories to cherish for a lifetime. LOCATION: Come and enjoy all Florida has to offer – the climate, water activities, shopping, special events, sports events, beaches, theme parks, casino, Orlando and Disney world, etc. Villa Adriana is centrally located to provide quick and easy access to all of your vacation destinations via I-275, I-75, I-4 and the Veterans Expressway (like the hub of a bicycle wheel with each spoke of the wheel/roadway providing easy access to your destinations). All the amenities Greater Tampa Bay, the Gulf of Mexico and Florida have to offer are within easy reach. You’ll be vacationing in a peaceful yet elegant, European, country setting. To the east you’ll have an easy 80 minute* drive to Orlando (Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World, Islands of Adventure, etc.); to the west you’ll be able to enjoy several of the best beaches in the USA (Clearwater Beach, Honeymoon Island, Caladesi, Howard Park, etc.); to the south you’re just 20 minutes* from the Tampa Bay theme parks of Busch Gardens and Adventure Island.

You’re 15 minutes from the new Tampa Premium Outlet Mall and just 2 minutes from grocery shopping. But best of all, you’re just seconds from being able to sit outside and enjoy all the beauty and splendor Villa Adriana has to offer. * Drive Times Estimates are according to on-line Maps site. Enjoy Florida’s Fun and Sun and create “WOW! Memories.” This unbelievably beautiful Mediterranean style palace, nestled on a water ski sized, spring-fed lake, is truly a masterpiece work of ART that must be seen to be fully appreciated. Almost everyone who’s seen it has said, “Villa Adriana is the most beautiful home they have ever seen.” Tucked away on the 20 acres inside the gated community of Bellamere, Villa Adriana features breathtaking views of both Lake Kell and its lush landscaping. INSIDE: During your stay at Villa Adriana, you will truly enjoy living the lifestyle of the rich and famous. Villa Adriana is not just a large mansion; the finishes and quality are reminiscent of the European Royal Palaces where the privileged live. Old World Features: Authentic Venetian plaster walls throughout, Baroque-style painted and gold leaf ceilings (40 oz. of 24k gold leaf), 14 Swarovski crystal chandeliers, custom travertine staircase and railing, cherry cabinets, aged granite flooring, 46 Tuscany-style “castle-like” interior doors, 131 fully cased thermal insulated exterior windows and doors and travertine decks outside. Contrasting with all the Old World Mediterranean features are many technological advances for your comfort and enjoyment, including: the ultimate in toilets (3 Toto toilets with automated lid open/close, automated flushing, heated seats, and built-in bidets for a hands free wash and blow drying), automated lighting to create ambiance and make it easy to control the lighting, a home theater system, and other electronic smart house features. This will be a vacation/wedding to remember with unbelievable photos to show your friends. AMENITIES: On-site amenities include kayaking, lounging around the saltwater pool, swimming, fishing, outdoor grilling on the Wolfe 48” grill, enjoying video gaming, board games (chess, checkers, and backgammon, others), watching movies, sports or concerts in the magnificent 120 inch home theater (see picture). Note, paid subscriptions to Netflix Streaming Movies, Pandora and XM radio are available for your use. You can also enjoy table tennis (ping pong), a workout in the Gym, Foosball, card/poker table, massages on one of the two massage chairs, and so much more. Lounge around the pool or one of several “gathering places” such as the pool cabana, the gazebo on the dock, under the oak tree covered picnic area in the front, or one of the two lanai areas. Not to mention the living room, family room, breakfast nook, library/reading room, theater, etc. Just come and hang out and have fun. Villa Adriana features outstanding indoor/outdoor areas to enjoy your time with your family and friends. RELAXATION TO THE MAX. The screened gazebo, located over the lake on the dock is the perfect place to chill out and relax. Immerse yourself in nature ANY GAMERS IN THE FAMILY? From my 22 year old son: The fourth bedroom/game room features 7 speakers of HD surround sound to go with the PlayStation 3, titles such as Call of Duty, Ratchet & Clank, and Hitman. More games are available from most retail stores or directly through the PlayStation Network. The PlayStation 3 is also a full service Blu-ray and DVD player. Watch Netflix videos. The Playstation2 features ARCADE Classic games such as DDRMAX: Dance Dance Revolution, Gauntlets: Legacy, Call of Duty, SOCOM, 007, Kingdom Hearts, and much more! Great entertainment for teens and adults! The Futon in this room converts to a bed. WHAT OTHERS SAY: Our Guests have commented Villa Adriana is so beautiful and offers so much, they see very little reason to ever leave the property (see vacationer reviews). OTHER: Not only do we provide Wifi connectivity to the internet, we also provide an internet connected PC and printer to allow you to print off your boarding passes, etc. We have a well-equipped laundry room to take care of any needed cleaning. There is NO differed maintenance in this home (we take pride in keeping everything in working order - sometimes things break down, but we always endeavor to correct them). We have a full time property caretaker to maintain the landscaping, pool, daily trash removal and to take care of any emergency needs you might have.
