Business is big and booming at Soleil Laurel Canyon, and the community has officially been ranked as the No. 3 Top Retirement Community in Atlanta by the Atlanta Business Chronicle! Ranking at No. 3 in 2014 and No. 5 in 2013, Soleil is certainly proving to be a place where many people want to live – and the numbers are proving it.

Soleil embraces retirement with a zeal you can’t find anywhere else, and with more than 50 on-site social clubs and activity groups, incredible amenities including tennis courts, a full range golf course, gourmet teaching kitchen, indoor heated Olympic-sized pool, outdoor amphitheater and more, it’s easy to see why Soleil is a premier destination for active-adult living. Here are five additional reasons Soleil is ranked as a top retirement community:

  1. Amenities and clubs. Soleil’s resort-style clubhouse boasts 28,000 square feet, complete with an indoor and outdoor heated pool, gourmet teaching kitchen, ballroom, billiards room, fitness center, tennis facility and more. Outside, residents enjoy a community garden and greenhouse, a fishing lake and bucolic views. The lifestyle directors at Soleil are always busy, planning social events such, as wine socials, dinners, events, galas and more to keep residents constantly out and about.
  2. Community. Ask anyone at Soleil, and they’ll tell you it’s more than a nice place to retire – it’s a community. There’s a warm sense of belonging and companionship when you visit. It feels like such a welcoming home because it is home to hundreds of residents who chose this ideal community above all others.
  3. Location. Located northwest of Atlanta and nestled at the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains, there is always something to do in the beautiful city of Canton. With gorgeous greenery in the summertime and vibrant, colorful leaves during the fall, the views and activities that surround Soleil Laurel Canyon are what make it so alluring.
  4. Affordability. Georgia is one of the most tax-friendly states for retirees. Retirement income for people over 62 is exempt up to $35,000 per person, and almost all non-working income will be exempt (all will be exempt by 2016). Additionally, property tax collections are below the national average.
  5. Mainentance-free living. When you live at Soleil, you have it made. There is no need to worry about outdoor care or chores – included in the monthly HOA fee is complete lawn maintenance and an irrigation system. Also included in the fee is in-home security monitoring complete with free maintenance and television.
