Tom Leicht wrote to share the availability of his accessible timeshares at Galleon Resort, Key West, Florida.

Leict writes:
The property and town of Key West offer excellent wheelchair accessibility. I know firsthand because I have been a paraplegic since 1978 and have done a lot of traveling in that time span for business and pleasure. It is the best destination I've been to and I have been going back every year since 1996. Learn more by visiting his site at http://www.thegalleonkeywest.com

Two of our gites are designed to meet the needs of wheelchair users and my husband and I both work as access consultants, he being a wheelchair user also. We are an Irish and Italian family and have some 200 acres set in our own valley with beautiful surrounding countryside. We have a 10 by 5 metre swimming pool. We can supply walk itineraries and cycling routes (with bikes as and where necessary) and much more. We have lots to offer-- not just the great food, wine and welcome - we have interest for lepidopterists, botanists, artists foods, and walkers alike.
