Nestled on an isthmus between Lake Butler and Lake Down, Windermere Florida is surrounded by sand-bottom lakes. The lake system, connected by a series of canals, is called the Butler Chain.
Windermere is located in Orange County just 12 miles southwest of Orlando. Surrounded by water, it is an affluent area with several celebrity residents. For those looking for rental apartments close to Orlando and area attractions, the town of Windermere is ideal.
Disney World is 12 miles south of Windermere. With easy access to I-4, the Florida Turnpike, and Orlando International Airport, this is a busy area with a strong economic base.
Windermere has three country clubs, three parks, and two historic sites. The pedestrian-friendly downtown area features brick-lined sidewalks and streets. This small community is family-oriented with several activities, including a 5K run/walk on a course of unpaved, hard-packed roads along the lake.
