Holiday homes in Sarasota
Sarasota is a picture-book city on Florida's west coast and is considered a holiday paradise not least thanks to its numerous beaches. Accordingly, you are spoilt for choice when looking for a holiday home that fully meets your needs. There is a particularly wide range of activities along the coastline in the districts of San Remo, Granada, Bayfront, Central Cocoanut and Indian Beach near the Sapphire Shores. There you not only benefit from a breathtaking view of the deep blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico, but also from the well-developed public transport system.Peace and relaxation in an exclusive location
If, on the other hand, you attach importance to a particularly exclusive location, a holiday home on one of the offshore islands is ideally suited for you. Especially on Bayisland, St. Armands and Bird Key you will find numerous villa-like luxury holiday homes, which apart from their own palm gardens and large pools often even have their own access to the golf course and boat dock.

Travelers and Activities
At the latest since Sarasota's Siesta Key was voted the best beach in the USA by TripAdvisor in 2015, the small town in Florida is also officially considered a bathing paradise. This title does not come by chance either, because while the little ones splash about in the shallow water, the big ones relax in the middle of the characteristic white quartz sand. The bathing fun is rounded off by a wide range of water activities, from jet skiing and stand-up paddling to relaxed fishing trips on the golf course.Sarasota for culture lovers
Sarasota is by far not only known for its beaches, but also for its rich cultural offer. Art lovers in particular will get their money's worth by visiting "The Ringling", which in turn consists of the "Museum of Art", the "Circus Museum", the "Bay Front Gardens" and the "Asolo Theater". The offer is supplemented by the "Hap's Cycles and Museum", the "Marietta Museum & Whimsy" as well as the "Art Center Sarasota".
Things to know
Thanks to average annual temperatures around 20 degrees Celsius and at least six hours of sunshine a day, Sarasota is in principle worth a trip all year round. However, the best time to book a holiday home in Sarasota is between October and May. The summer months, on the other hand, are marked by intense heat beyond the 30 degree mark as well as heavy precipitation. But if you don't mind that, you can look forward to much emptier beaches and pleasant water temperatures of up to 29 degrees Celsius.
The small town became sadly famous on September 11, 2011, when the then US President George W. Bush was in a primary school for a press briefing and heard about the attacks in New York and Washington in front of cameras.
Top travel tips
Although the USA is not known for its brewing tradition, it is known for its inventiveness. You can experience this inventiveness for yourself in Sarasota during a craft beer tasting. Could craft beer specialities like the "Circus City IPA", reminiscent of the city's circus tradition, compete with German beer?Sarasota Classic Car Museum
