This Valentine’s Day weekend, why not think outside the box?  Flowers, candy and dinner for two are fine, but off the Northeast Florida coast, just a few miles from Jacksonville, real romance awaits.  It’s the kind you see in commercials and magazines.  The kind you look at and think “Wow”.  Like horseback rides on the beach at sunrise.  Being pampered with the one you love at a fancy spa.   Strolling hand-in-hand through historic streets, discovering quaint shops and bistros.

Travel+Leisure and Country Living consistently rank Fernandina Beach as one of America’s most romantic towns.  And that’s just part of Amelia Island’s magnetic appeal for couples who want to spend time away together.

For a builder of new homes for sale Amelia Island Florida, has it all.  At Artisan Homes, we know this place and its people so well that we’ll admit to being biased.  And we never tire of seeing others discover the many remarkable things big and small that it has to offer.

Thanks to our comfortable, year-round mild weather and invigorating breezes off the ocean, it’s great to be doing things outside.  Many of our visitors ride bikes along Egan’s Creek Greenway Trail and the Timucuan Trail at Big Talbot Island State Park.  The romantic surroundings of Fort Clinch and Amelia Island State Park also attract couples seeking solitude in the splendor of nature.

You can charter a boat and watch the sunset over the Intracoastal Waterway or take a kayak ride on the marsh, getting up close and personal with our diverse local wildlife.  And those sunrise horseback rides on the beach?   Yes, we have those, too.

Do you enjoy golfing together?  You’ll want to bring your clubs.  Amelia Island has long been a well-known destination for players both amateur and pro, featuring world-class championship greens and facilities.

For anyone looking at new homes for sale Amelia Island Florida, offers a wonderful opportunity to leave the stress of city life, exhale and settle into its laid back ambiance.  The neighborhoods we build both respect their environment and perfectly blend with it.  They become part of the romance that so defines this special hideaway.  So it’s not uncommon for visitors who come for a weekend to return later and put down roots.

We should hasten to add that we have nothing against flowers, candy and dinner for two.  We just think that – like everything else – they’re a bit better on Amelia Island, where you’ll have easy access to about 100 restaurants, serving a wide range of cuisines to tantalize the palate.  There’s also the English Tea Experience for two at the Hoyt House quaint bed and breakfast, with freshly baked English scones.  After sundown, head for one of Fernandina’s newest bars, The Decantery, where you’ll find a large selection of wines and beverages accompanied by an array of delectable homemade desserts, all in a stylish and sophisticated setting.

Of course, you’re going to find your own special places here.  There’s no point in us listing them all.  As with so many before you, there will come a moment when you look into one another’s eyes and say without words that you know you’ll be coming back.

And that’s how it happens.  It starts with Valentine’s weekend and then becomes a lifetime of memories.  There may well come a time when you’ll consider staying forever.  When you’re ready to see new homes for sale Amelia Island Florida has some of the best in the area.
