La Francesca is situated in a protected area, 15 hectares close to the National Park of the Cinque Terre.
The microclimatic features of La Francesca are due to its favourable position facing South and protected from the North winds. Medium temperatures, during the coldest months, seldom fall below 10° and weather is dry and sunny for most of the year.Rains, sometimes violent, sharpen underwoodʼs perfumes, while in Win-ter citrus fruits grow ripe and roses come out with no risk of frosts.
Walking through the shaded footpaths of the Village, from the belve-dere to the orchard, from the restaurant down to the sea, one feels part of a protected natural landscape.
Tourists, who nowadays are more and more desirous to find unspoilt plac-es, find in La Francesca the ideal place for a stay in all seasons. There, they can go through old tracks and discover landscapes, scents and natu-ral flavours.
Most of the plants are autoch-thonous, but all have features that help to understand the envi-ronment.
They grow in a particularly mild climate in Winter, but an unfa-vourable one in Summer, when heat and dry weather concur to create difficult conditions.
Evergreens predominate, both in the forest vegetation as well as in the characteristic Mediterranean maquis.
The private beach, located in a small bay among rocks, can be reached on foot in a few minutes. On the belvedere: shower, seawater childrenʼs pool, bathing huts, so-larium with sun-beds.
The wild and charming landscape presents geologic charateristics and remarkable rocky beds. In the small coves among the rocks it is nice to swim into the depths, characterized by rares species and meadows of Posidonia.
The 55 houses and apartments - all overlooking the sea - are surround-ed by a marvellous park and are the ideal place for a holiday immersed in nature and far from constraint. All the houses are in solid brickwork, simply furnished but completely equipped with kitchenette, bathroom with shower, hair-dryer, central heating, telephone, safe, TV/SAT con-nection and a private terrace.
Type A 2+1 (25 sq.m)
7 houses located in the upper side of the Village. They face westwards on mimo-sas wood - a large, shady and flat area - and eastwards on the Gulf of Levanto.
Underbungalows (30 sq.m)
They are situated in the centre of the Village, at the lower floor of two-level houses. From the large terrace glances range from the coast to the sea.
Type B 2+2 (40 sq.m) Located around the play area and along the route to the sea. Most of them are one family-houses which offer privacy and comfort. There are also 4 apartments (35 sq.m each) in a building located in the lower side of the Village – the closest to the sea. They share a patio, while terraces overlook the sea. Guests have at their disposal a large solarium on the roof.
Type C 4+2 (50 sq.m)
Situated in the centre of the Village, they are mostly one family-hous-es, some with a fireplace. The two bedrooms, the spacious living-room and the terrace make them very comfortable.
Sports and swimming-pool
La Francesca is a self-sufficient settlement, where you can spend your time with no hurry or constraint. For sports and relaxing there is a rich choice: indoor gym, 2 tennis courts, football and volley-ball fields, bowl-ing, minigolf, table tennis, training. All these activities can be performed all the year through. The swimming-pool (25x10 metres), situated among pine-trees and oleanders, is open from June to September: sun-beds, whirlbath and aquagym courses are available during the Summer.
We take special care of children: a large play area allows also the small-est ones to move around in complete safety. During Summer and school holidays various activities are organized by experienced nurses for kids.On request, naturalistic trips for school groups.
The Rosadimare restaurant, full of charme, is also the ro-mantic and ideal setting for a wedding party.
Splendid buffets and delicious menus of Italian and interna-tional specialties, with a large choice of vintage wines.
And for those who want to discover the secrets of a very special cuisine, we have planned cooking courses with different themes.
If you wish, we can also arrange special visits to the areaʼs most well-known wine producers.
