Victoria’s best-kept secret, that is – and we think it’s time to get the word out.
If you’re over 55, have had your fill of home and yard maintenance, and the daily drudgery of cooking and cleaning is getting you down, there’s a retirement village in Victoria, Texas, that’s awaiting your discovery. This somewhat utopian community is Copperfield Village, an example of independent senior living at its finest.
The city of Victoria, dubbed one of “America’s Best Places to Live” by Livability.com, is located beside the Guadalupe River, 30 miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico, and is within a two-hour drive of Corpus Christi, Houston, San Antonio, and Austin.
Geraldine Nix, community manager, keeps this tight ship sailing, and nowhere is that more evident than in the Copperfield dining room and kitchen. Geraldine has parlayed her love of cooking and wealth of family recipes into an incredible daily dining experience for Copperfield residents. You have to sample it to believe it. [Note: I did just that, including TWO amazing desserts: chocolate mud pie and bread pudding.]
Meet the Village People
Within the 70 private patio homes dwell active empty nesters and retired adults who enjoy sharing interests and activities. Life is as independent as they want it to be.
Get around, get around, I get around …
Whatever their choice of ride, CV residents show a flare for getting around the Village and Victoria in style.
Let the good times roll!
