Haile Village – The Heart of Haile Plantation

Haile Village is the heart of Haile Plantation, an award-winning New Urbanism community in Gainesville, FL.  This traditional neighborhood development is located 8 miles from UF Healths Shands Hospital and the University of Florida. Featuring mixed-use development, the village combines businesses, shops, and restaurants with condos, townhomes, and single-family detached homes at various price points. This community has its own HOA, the Haile Village Center Owners Association (HVCOA).


Living in the village puts you in the center of things in this community.

Haile Farmers Market happens every Saturday morning in the village from 8:30 AM to Noon, rain or shine.  Two very popular festivals are held in the village every year – Oktoberfest and Light the Village. Several neighborhood homes and condos overlook Hawkstone Country Club’s Gary Player Signature golf course.

Bike trails

Bikers enjoy easy access to the Haile Loop, the 3 mile paved walking and biking trail that encircles the Haile Plantation community and has the village center at its heart. The Loop connects up with the Archer Braid Trail, a paved 6 mile bike trail that runs parallel to Archer Road and dead-ends at the Archer water tower. Future plans for this bike trail are to extend it to reach the University of Florida.
