Living & Visiting 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 just 26 miles east of Charlottesville and 45 miles west of Richmond, Virginia’s capital city, Louisa County is nestled between two 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.
