Find The Villages Florida Homes for Sale

The Villages is the largest retirement community in the world, located in Central Florida, 45 miles northwest of Orlando and 20 miles south of Ocala, in the counties of Sumter, Marion and Lake.

The Villages started in the 1970s when business partners Harold Schwartz and Al Tarrson started a mobile home park. By the 1980s, Schwartz bought out Tarrson and brought his son H. Gary Morse, acquired more land and developed a retirement community. By the 1990s, under the new name The Villages, the community contained three golf courses, restaurants, the first Winn Dixie supermarket and nightly events. As of 2022, the community is still controlled by the family Morse and has over 71,000 homes, over 138,000 residents, 12 championships plus 38 executive golf courses, over 100 recreation facilities with 89 pools, thousands of weekly activities, three Town Squares and a myriad of restaurants and shops.

The Villages spans 57 square miles and has continued to acquire more land towards the south and southwest. Future development will bring more neighborhoods, shopping, dining, businesses, recreation and entertainment. Click here to learn more about the future development at The Villages.
