Venetia is a deed-restricted, gated community in Venice, Florida that comprises four subdivisions.

Popular destinations in Venice include the Ideal Classic Cars Museum and Showroom, the Venice Area Audubon Society, and the Cabaret of Magic Variety Arts Theater. Venetia is within minutes to some of the city’s prime beaches along the Gulf of Mexico, and it is within walking distance to a bookstore (Books-A-Million), a restaurant (Outback) and a Walmart.

Venetia was built between 1998 and 2006. It encompasses approximately 300 acres, and over half of the area was dedicated as a nature preserve. Since many of the residences back onto wetlands or one of the 12 community lakes, homeowners enjoy scenic views. Venetia’s association does permit rentals (for a minimum of 90 days), but other neighborhoods in Venice are much more popular for renters. This makes Venetia desirable for buyers who want to own their property and prefer to live among other homeowners.
Homes in this community feature Mediterranean architecture, characterized by stucco exteriors, tile roofs, curved entrances and Spanish-style columns. Venetia’s streets have charming Italian names. The four subdivisions are named Venetia Neighborhood Association (375 houses), Casa DiAmici (160 condos), Villa Paradiso (108 villas) and Villa Vivaci (108 villas). The condos and villas are all maintenance-free.
The Venetia Community Association (VCA) administers the common areas. These include a clubhouse, fitness center, pool, hot tub, basketball courts and tennis courts. The VCA also handles the landscaping and private roads maintenance. Residents of Villa Vivaci get to enjoy the subdivision’s private pool while Casa DiAmici and Villa Paradiso homeowners share a second pool.
The clubhouse organizers offer many fun activities such as poker, bridge, canasta, bingo and mahjong. Residents interested in movies, books, tennis, biking, arts, crafts, computers and golf can join clubs pertaining to those hobbies. The golfers get to take advantage of highly rated courses in the area. Monthly dinner outings, road rallies, bowling excursions, fishing trips and special holiday events are also part of the social calendar.
