Enjoy a fantastic vacation in BELLA CALABRIA one of the last, undiscovered secrets of the Mediterranean.Our property is set in over 5000 M2 of gardens and greenery with panoramic views of the sea and beaches, Stromboli (day trips by boat) and other volcanic islands, the ancient town of Tropea and much more. Stromboli and her 'sisters' form the 'Isolie Eolie' (Aeolian Islands) and are designated a UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE.
Around the villa, you will have exclusive use of the stunning private, heated swimming pool (12 x 6 M) with latest LED underwater colour changing lighting system, surrounding flowerbeds, shrubs and large sun terraces. The pool has a diving board, powerful hydro massage system and a swim training jet, which allows you to swim while remaining stationary in the water. You will also enjoy the secluded tennis court and 5-a-side football pitch with top quality synthetic grass surface. The court will be floodlit during last half 2010. In the shade you will find a professional, outdoor table tennis table, table football, dartboard and other amusements. Bar B Q in the garden - our local fishman arrives every morning with FRESH fish and Zambrone has 2 excellent cheap butchers.
VILLA LA FRANCESCANA is ideally situated between the ancient towns of Tropea and Pizzo. Pizzo is famous for wonderful ice cream -Tartuffo di Pizzo-swordfish and tuna. Tropea is a unique and busy, bustling town in the height of summer with many restaurants, bars, ice cream parlours and shops but quiet and peaceful throughout the rest of the year. You will be staying 5 mins from AQUAPARK ZAMBRONE a huge water and amusement park on Zambrone beach, an absolute favourite with adults and children alike, perfect in June, July and September but, beware, very crowded in mid-August! We can arrange discounted entrance on a daily or weekly basis. Beyond Tropea is the holiday peninsula of Capo Vaticano, another jewel in the Calabrian coast and well known by scuba divers and snorkellers for the crystal clear waters that are found throughout Calabria. A visit to the area would not be complete without a dinner in the village of Bratiro, famous for local delicacies of meat and game.
The coastal area has a year round warm microclimate and for 10 months of the year the beaches are almost deserted - literally like having your own beach. In summer, Zambrone beach has bars and clubs; boat, pedalo and jetski hire; fishing trips are available from nearby Briatico.The area is popular with paragliders and the local launch area is near to the villa.The whole area is full of things to do but if you prefer peace and quiet, chill out around the pool at the villa. La Francescana is the last house at the end of a private road with only one near neighbour. There is NO traffic, no street lights, no noise - unless you want to make some - its a free haven for you to do as you choose.We recommend that you have a car for at least part of you stay although everything you need is reachable by walking. A trattoria/pizzeria is 3 minutes away and Zambrone railway station is only 3 km from the villa . We can arrange car, scooter and mountain bike hire, boat rental - just ask!
If Golf is your passion we have an arrangement with an idyllic and challenging local course for economic equipment rental and green fees. The 9 hole course is set amongst olive and citrus groves, is rarely crowded and has a great restaurant and bar and a huge designer swimming pool available to players and their families. If you just want to try golf for the first time, use the free clubs from the villa (mens, ladies and children's sets) and head to the practice range with a bucket of balls. You will be hooked for sure and soon be enjoying you first round of golf. Golf for under 16 s is FREE.There are numerous possibilities for excursions. Zambrone to Stromboli and other islands on a mini cruise; the ferry to Sicily is less than 2 hours away; Serra San Bruno, Reggio Calabria and other historic towns are all close enough for a day trip.Zambrone is reachable by train from Hamburg, Dortmund and other Nth European cities (nearest mainline station Vibo Valentia/Pizzo 16 km) Lamezia (50km) has direct flights from Europe and Canada.
