Recent improvements to Chateau of Naples include the replacement six years ago (2002) of all concrete. The buildings get repainted every three years.
There are five buildings at the Chateau, with two of them right on the Gulf. Each of these two story buildings contain three-bedroom units, while the three buildings next to Gulf Shore Boulevard are three stories and have two-bedroom units. Most units pass from owner to another family member, so there are very limited opportunities to buy here. If you do get a unit, you must meet the 55 and older requirement along with the no pet restriction. Most residents are seasonal and elderly, although over time the general population has been getting relatively younger (still 55 and up though).
