Life in Louisa


Louisa County, located in the beautiful foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, offers a balance between the peaceful life in rural communities and everything an urban center has to offer. Located east of Charlottesville, southwest of Fredericksburg, and west of Richmond, Virginia’s capital city, Louisa County is nestled amid three of Virginia's urban and cultural centers. 

With a wide range of community events, classic country living in historic homes or modern ones around the county or on Lake Anna, and easy connections to additional shopping, arts, and entertainment, Louisa County offers a wonderful alternative to live, work, and raise a family.

Lake Anna is a significant part of Louisa County's landscape, and features several recreational opportunities such as boating, fishing, hunting and other water sports.

The County's wineries, breweries and cideries frequently hold special events.
