Naramata is world-renowned for its amazing wineries, vineyards, orchards, and unparalleled views across the lake. It maintains a laid-back vibe that is especially evident in the tiny, quaint village, uncrowded beaches, and leafy Manitou Park. Naramata appeals to so many people, and with good reason; there’s so much to fall in love with, here!
Although small, the village is a vibrant one –casual cafés and funky shops line the main street, which winds down to the beach. An elementary school, museum, and a community centre anchor the village, along with the historic Naramata Heritage Inn and Spa. Dining options abound, with a variety of wonderful winery-based restaurants joining the popular village-centred eateries.
This is a close-knit and supportive community, with many popular social organizations and groups, a summertime farmers market, a community garden, and well-maintained parks and beaches. The stunning and unique KVR Trail runs along the hillside to the east, connecting Naramata to Penticton and Kelowna through a series of old train tunnels. Motorized vehicles are prohibited along this trail, which makes it incredibly popular with hikers, bikers, and equestrians. Those who live here genuinely appreciate just how easy life can be!
Residents are an eclectic mix –Naramata attracts artists and artisans, farmers, families, sophisticated urban retirees, and Penticton professionals looking for a respite.
Housing options are as varied as their occupants in Naramata. Charming cottages pepper the village, while expansive agricultural properties, heritage farmhouses, and mid-century ranchers stretch from Kelowna Mountain down to Penticton. Newer, luxury estate homes are being built in the area, as well.
Just 15 minutes from Penticton, Naramata feels like it’s a hidden oasis. It’s a fantastic place to live (we know, because we live here, too!). Let us help you discover it.
