#1 of 7 Specialty lodging in Scario
Located in the Cilento National park and directly on the beach. You will live immersed totally in the mediterranean "macchia": completely invisible from sky, earth and sea. Last inhabited place before the Marine protected area Coast of Infreschi and Masseta. If you are looking for: loud music and an intense nigthlife; a sandy beach with rows of parasols; hotel-like services with spacious accomodations, La Francesca is not for you, especially if you do not like living in a wood rich in flora and fauna. Instead, we can offer you: quiet and silence for a relaxing holiday in a natural environment; the sea within walking distance with a fine gravel beach; accomodation in rigid tents or basic but comfortable rooms; prompt attention to your requests.

Our family spent the first two of August 2016 here and had a delightful time. Our little boys (7 and 4 years old) adored it and I don't think my wife and I have had such a relaxing holiday. It's not cheap, but what you get is worth it--easy access to three private beaches that will all take your breath away. The second beach in particular, which is about a 10 minute walk from the bungalows, is just stunning. Crystal clear water that's chalk full of fish and not too deep, basically a huge, natural swimming pool ensconced in a rocky alcove with a medieval tower perched at the top. The bungalows are a little rustic, it's true. But they have everything you need and we were very comfortable--even my wife who is by no means a "bungalow" person and was super reticent about the place before we arrived. The whole place is under a canopy of trees and vegetation that keeps it nice and cool all day long. Paired with the breeze blows more or constantly from the sea, the bungalows are nice and cool all day long. I highly recommend getting the "mezza pensione" for adults. The food is excellent, they always have vegetarian options and there's a good menu for kids as well. Don't get the mezza pensione for kids younger than 10-11--it's more food than they can eat. I also highly recommend going on the excursions. The "Cilento" is an amazing part of Italy and the national park which surrounds the place is well worth exploring. The people who worked their were lovely and really made us felt at home, especially the kids who were more or less running around on their own by day two. It's also right next Scario, which is a charming little beach town. To get there, you can call a car that will take you to Scario and then back to La Francesca whenever you want for a flat fee of 10 euros. Anyway, went on longer than I intended, but if you're looking for a typically Italian beach holiday in a totally unique setting, you can't stop looking now. This is it.
