“This is where the heart of Southwest Florida beats… winding along North River Road, beside orange groves and horse stables. “

Do you long for a little history… a community where the roots run deep? Then perhaps Alva is the place for you. Unpretentious, friendly, and very Southern. There are communities with boating and horse stables. Where you can have a little land or a lot of land.

You can also venture outside of the community-lifestyle and live with ultimate country freedom…

Imagine your days spent in your Old-Florida Southern Home with a wrap-around porch and metal roof, surrounded by  beautiful 100 year-old mossy oak trees and your children laughing and playing on a tire swing in the front yard. If that makes you want to pour an ice-cold glass of sweet tea and sit down on you porch swing to relax, then you’re in the right place.
