vila Gardens, a residence for active seniors, is situated on three lushly landscaped acres in the heart of California’s picturesque San Gabriel Valley. An unequalled independent living center in the Catholic tradition, Avila offers both numerous amenities and spiritual benefits.
Avila Gardens is named after Saint Teresa of Avila, Carmelite nun and Doctor of the Church, whose vibrant, life-giving spirit brought forth new life to the Carmelite Order in the Sixteenth Century.
The same vibrant spirit permeates Avila Gardens. Diversity and excitement weave through the daily rhythm of life at Avila and are expressed in events, ranging from Mardi Gras parties and Coffe Houses to themes such as “Around the World at Avila Gardens.” Avila radiates with the joy and excitement that springs from a life of vibrant fulfillment.
Avila Gardens is more than just “a place to live.” It is grace and blessing, challenge and fulfillment. Avila is both hearth and home.
