Alva

By
Real Estate Agent with Steelbridge Realty, LLC

When people think of Florida then tend to think of the beach, there is so much more

Alva  today is a charming, rural, unincorporated area of Lee County, Florida.  A drive through Alva reveals extensive citrus groves, pastures dotted with cattle and horses, houses, some grand, most modest, nestled beneath majestic live oaks, dripping with strands of Spanish moss, and a small village perched upon the banks of the Caloosahatchee River.  Alva has a long and rich history, being one of the first settlements in Southwest Florida.

Cristina,  I'm in Fort Myers Beach and have not yet made it to Alva.  I keep hearing it is so nice, maybe a trip there over the holidays.
