Welcome to Charlottesville and Albemarle County

Our little corner of the world. A small piece of heaven and certainly one of the best places to live in the world. We admit to not being particularly objective in this matter, but one visit to Charlottesville, Virginia and you will agree with The New York Times article that extols Charlottesville as the place where “privacy is respected, where Southern gentility, even chivalry still thrives, and perhaps above all, where the land rolls away toward the mountains in the west with a beauty that snatches the breath at the top of each crest and the bottom of each vale.”

No matter what you’re looking for in a city, Charlottesville can exceed your highest expectations. Enjoy a polo match at King Family Vineyard in the afternoon then catch your favorite band at the Jefferson Theater at night. Thinking about dinner?
