Lakeside Landings offers another alternative to The Villages. It is enveloped on three sides by The Villages and was established by a developer out of Naples Florida. Although it does not participate in the amenities found in The Villages, the monthly HOA and amenity fees in Lakeside Landings are very similar to what is found in The Villages. The homes are reminiscent of what you'd see in Naples as opposed to the Key West style that is more prominent in the Lake Sumter Landing area. Home prices are also somewhat higher in Lakeside Landings unless one is looking for a condominium or attached villa style. Lakeside Landings is one of the few locations in or around The Villages that does not offer golfing in the community.
You will notice two separate sections on the map below. The section on the left displays the border of the entire retirement community of The Villages. The section on the right displays the specific community described above that is not part of The Villages and shows its location relative to The Villages.
