#1 of 11 hotels in Sabaudia
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.

Two nights at a very charming hotel on a beautiful location. Wonderful rooms, and for my stay I got a room jus over the entrance with a huge outdoor space where I could spend quality time with my colleagues. Spacious rooms, great AC and a small fridge. I didn’t have dinner at the hotel, but breakfasts were great. The only consideration is the distance to everything. A group of adults have no problems walking the distance to the city center, but the traffic is close and you have to walk on the road. Not a problem, but good to know. I can really recommend a stay at the hotel if your are in the area. Make sure that you have plenty of time for the checking in and out though.

We spent a three day holiday at the San Francisco Charming hotel. The location is absolutely amazing. The lake view that we could enjoy from the terrace of our very comfortable room was priceless. The structure of the hotel is simple, but at the same time cool and elegant. The garden, which is undoubtedly the strength of the hotel, is unique. We really enjoyed the rich breakfast in the marvellous garden as well as dining at the excellent restaurant. We truly thank the competent, nice and always available staff. The only remark we feel to raise is about the parking lot. First of all, it is too small and with no canopy. Secondly, you have to share it with the clients of the restaurant that, especially on Saturday nights, tend to park wildly. Therefore, when you get back at night you may have to leave your key car to the receptionist. He/She will park your car as soon as possible.

Quite nice hotel. Quiet place, cozy and peaceful. The rooms are clean. They indeed have a free parking place, because you really need a car. The beach is not that close, it is quite a long way (20 min fast walk) and it is not safe at all, as there is no path for pedestrians. The cars pass by in high speed. The beach is free entrance and you get 2 chaiselongs. Breakfast really dissapointed us. It was very poor and very little choice.

Even with limited English, the staff provided a friendly service with a family feel. It’s really a charming hotel, all white decoration with resort feel. Rooms are small but the idea is to spend time outside. Breakfast is the most enjoyable part of the stay.

This is a truly lovely hotel tucked away on the lake of the nature reserve in Sabaudia. Elegant decor and picturesque setting make to a winning combo. Just 20mins walk from a sandy beach full of bars and places to eat I thought I was in Hawaii! We ate in the hotel restaurant and glad we did great food and wine all in the hotels garden. If you're​ in Rome and want to get out the city for a night or heading down south it's well worth a visit.
