We are from Germany and stayed this year the end of May almost a week at this fantastic place. The name doesnt promise too much. It is really fantastic. Bella, bella, bella. Once you drive in the surroundings coming from the countryside you dont expect an exquise place like this. Getting at the entrance, with all its white curtins, you would expect maybe in Miami beach...Elegancy pure. Very if not extreme friendly personell, food: fantastic and worth dining in. We did every night and loved it. A beautiful garden, also with white furtiture and the best: 2 access to a small lake, with a place to sit and dream away. If you have the chance the rowing folks pass by. (the sixties olympics were here) They even service here. The walk to the beach is 15-20 min. We highly recommend this secret (still) between Roma (1h) and Napoli. Enjoy!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Lake Sabaudia, within the National Park of Circeo and flowing directly into the sea, is a place where the expression, “immersed in nature” has a profound significance. Here the main attraction is Nature itself which once you arrive slowly takes over. San Francesco charming Hotel is situated on the shore: a whitemodern building whose imaginary appearance is that of a ship ready to set sail to the winds, but that, in reality, is anchored to the calm of the large garden facing the lake and where, moving in the wind, are only the numerous drapes framing the façade. From the privileged views of the hotel, the protagonist is the lake itself, with the numerous villas appearing alongthe shores, while right in front of the San Francesco hotel is the small but evocative Sanctuary of the XII century, S. Maria of the Sorresca. The story goes that this is the actual spot where fishermen had placed the statue of the Mother and Child “fished” from the lake, where now, the little church (almost entirely rebuilt) shows few traces of ancian medieval character. A touringboat offers visitors the possibility of taking a cruise along the curved borders of the lake. This is an experience to savour at The San Francesco, located only 500 meters from a private beach and sea, just over an hour from Rome and an hour and a half from the jet boats to Ponza Island from S. Felice Circeo. ... more less
