Welcome to the Mantua community site

Mantua is a suburban neighborhood of more than 1,500 houses in Fairfax, Va., about 12 miles west of Washington, D.C. Our wooded, park-like setting attracts nature-lovers. Our neighborhood encompasses all the detached homes in the area bounded by Route 50 (Arlington Boulevard), Route 236 (Little River Turnpike), Prosperity Avenue and Pickett Road, but not homes accessed only from those roads. We are close to Interstate 495, Interstate 66, and two Metro stations, Dunn Loring and Vienna.
