When you're looking for a quiet place within walking distance to transit lines, shopping and other world-class convenience, look no further than Renaissance Villas.
Renaissance Villas Apartments is a quiet community near UC Berkeley, but far enough away from campus to get away from the collegiate lifestyle when you're not in class. Our historic city has everything you could ever want, from world-class educational opportunities and facilities, a rich culture that fosters local art, active residents who promote community events and improvement, and a year-round events calendar that ensures you never have to look too hard for something to do. Berkeley is a great place to raise a family, with educational opportunities and top-notch schools aplenty, and our well-maintained parks are a great place to run and play.
