How to find La Francesca

By air

Since 2008 Pontecagnano airport (Salerno), just over 100 km away, has been in operation, with flights to Milan Malpensa, Turin and Verona.

By train

The major express trains (with sleeper cabins and berths) and all Eurostar trains stop at Sapri, only 15 km from La Francesca. From here you can take a taxi (cost around € 25).

By car

Take the A3 Salerno - Reggio Calabria motorway to the exit for Padula Buonabitacolo.
Turn left onto state highway 18, heading south, for less than 100 metres, then turn right towards Sapri, Policastro Bussentino.

After 1.6 km go left at the roundabout, taking the expressway (alternative to state highway 517), which in 33 km brings you to Policastro Bussentino.

At the end of the road turn left on state highway 18 for approximately 1.1 km. After the bridge over the river Bussento, and two bends, turn left at the first junction, signposted Scario 2.6 km.

In the village, follow the upper road (Via Principe Amedeo) which runs parallel to the marina, but inside the village; do not take the road which goes up to San Giovanni a Piro as this will take you in the wrong direction.

After approximately 400 m turn right into Via Gloria Bortolotti De Poli, which takes you to La Francesca; the road goes steeply uphill and seems to turn inland; it is not passable for vehicles with trailers (boats must be put in the water at Scario port) or campers or caravans (which in any case are not allowed at La Francesca).

After just over 1 km you will arrive at the entrance, and from the gate it is a steep descent to the sea.

Call us on 0974 986068 when you get to Naples or Salerno. We can advise you on the latest road and traffic situation, as there are alternative routes, not mentioned here to avoid confusion, which may be preferable in particular circumstances.

In case of problems, or if you anticipate arriving after 8 pm, please keep us informed during your journey, so that we can organise your arrival.
