Clermont vacation rentals

Citrus-scented Clermont is laid-back and inviting

Less than a 40-minute drive from the heart-thumping, goose bump-inducing theme parks of Lake Buena Vista, and the downtown of Orlando itself, Clermont is a relaxed and inviting American town with a penchant for all things citrus fruit. Lemons and oranges fresh from the local orchards fill the farmers’ markets here, while Clermont vacation rentals offer affordable and pleasant stays on the sunny banks of Lake Minneola and Lake Minnehaha. If you're looking for a chilled break close to the rollercoasters and beautiful Florida hills, there's nowhere quite like it.

Finding enjoyment in the Florida backcountry

Clermont's small-town feel and beautiful setting between the lakes and hills of central Florida make it the perfect place to come and explore the lesser-known backcountry of the Sunshine State. Boating trips across the nearby waters, fishing excursions, and cycling tours of the undulating ridges are all top of the menu, while bird watching and golfing near the Lake Louisa State Park is also popular. Clermont vacation rentals close to the center of town also have history buildings and local cafés and bars on the doorstep, meaning Floridian craft beers and Tex-Mex flavors straight from the BBQ grills.

Between the rollercoasters and lakes

Lakes pepper the whole area around Clermont, from Lake Minneola to Lake Minnehaha. From the banks of those, it's likely you'll be able to catch a glimpse of the region's most iconic landmark: The Florida Citrus Tower. This soaring, 75-foot-tall building is one of the original attractions of the Sunshine State, and once offered sweeping panoramas of the orange orchards, but today gives views of no fewer than 8 individual counties. It's also possible to find Clermont vacation rentals close to the theme parks, which means you can be in the company of Mickey Mouse and Sleeping Beauty in under an hour.

Winter in Clermont to dodge the crowds and humidity

Clermont is kissed by the same tropical temperatures as Florida's famous coastline, which means that this is the province of hot winters and long, sunny days right from the start of fall. What's more, with most travelers heading here in the summertime on account of school breaks, it's likely you'll find the lake beaches of Minneola and the totemic Citrus Tower much less busy between November and March. And the price of most Clermont Vacation rentals tends to drop around the wintertime.

Surrounded by the Florida hills

Sat smack bang in the heart of the Sunshine State, Clermont is enveloped by swathes of rolling hillsides and low-rise ridges. Perhaps the most famous outdoors attraction in the region is the Sugarloaf Mountain to the north, which bounces off Britton Hill and offers winding biking tracks and clay trail running. The rest of the area is largely given over to undulating citrus plantations and farms, where ramshackle barns dot the landscapes, and pastoral, lake-spotted vistas sometimes give way to a manicured golf course.
