I was here for a wedding, so I have not really experienced the rooms (I did not overnight there) but the location is really excellent, the organization and the remarkable and the restaurant is very good indeed. The outdoor areas are well managed and projected, the small piers with sub deck are lovely and relaxing and the garden is well... More

The hotel has a beautiful and relaxing garden by the lake. The staff is very kind. Services are great: chair and umbrella available on the beach, bicycles - everything without charge. The location is also great: not close to the city center, near to the beach. Good breakfast served in the garden. But we had a bad luck: our room... More

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... More

We arrived at this amazing spot and felt immediately very welcome. We got lots of documentation of the national park we wanted to visit. They gave us info on hiking trails,... In the morning after an extremely quiet night they treat you to a lovely Italian breakfast. A place you have to visit when you are in the area!

Very elegant, very kind service, but above all amazing and magic location on one of Sabaudia's lakes. Perfect to rest and to be inspired. But also very close to the sea, and with very good breakfast and dinner. The selection of furniture, its special architecture and its distinctive white/green dominant colors make this place hardly forgettable.

The hotel sits on the lake and just 10 mins bike ride from the beach - and the bikes are complimentary from the hotel. The area is beautiful and very pleasant for biking and walking. The hotel is small with some 20 rooms. We came off-season in January and there were very few guests. The staff was most welcoming. They... More

The name says a lot, it is a charming hotel indeed! The hotel is located on the lakeshore a few hundred yards from the sea. The property is hidden from the street, and once you enter the gates, you are greeted by a classy building with on its own gorgeous park, green meadows, flowers, trees casting the shadows where you...

We had aperitive and dinner at the restaurant of this hotel. The location is just great: from the garden to the tables, the candles and (fresh) flowers decoration all had an elegant touch. There is a lake nearby and the restaurant is under an elegant cover. Personnel were professional and kind, the food excellent. We stayed until late and could... More

Everything was super! It's the only one word for this hotel. Thanks A LOT to Silvia (reception) and other personal, also waiters!) Everybody helps you and wants to help, even if you're not Italian. It's not a problem here. The food in the restaurant is much better than in the other restaurants on the beach and in Sabaudia. Every 30... More

Very nice hotel, everything is brightly colored and very stylish arranged. Quiet area ideal for a relaxing break. Poorly marked access road.

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
