Hotel D'orange D'Alcantara
Francavilla is known for its unique natural beauty and gorges, and close proximity to impressive Mount Etna. The city dates back to 1092 and is full of history but ideal for those seeking nature and exploration. Francavilla has all of the services you may require for your holiday, including supermarkets, banks, a post office, a local market on Wednesdays and Fridays, a medical centre, bakeries and a tourist information office. There are also many cafe's, restaurants and bars in the main centre.
We stay at the simple Hotel D'Orange D'Alcantara in Francavilla. We have worked with the Savoca family who run the hotel for two generations. The hotel is a comfortable three star on the edge of town about 5 minutes walk from the centre. The hotel has a swimming pool but this is unlikely to be open for clients staying in April. Free WIFI is available in the lobby and the bar.
Our groups will stay in deluxe standard rooms which are slightly larger than standard rooms with elegant furniture and decor. All rooms include air conditioning, a balcony, sate light TV, telephone, minibar, safe, hairdryer and bathrobes.
Breakfasts and dinners at the hotel are included in the holiday charge and will be taken in the hotel. Lunches are not included and are usually taken as picnics or in a local cafe during the day. Breakfast is buffet style with a selection of cereal, cold meats, tomatoes, cheeses, fruits, rolls and jams. Dinner is a fixed four course menu with a starter, pasta, a main course and dessert. Sometimes you may be required to choose your pasta and main course choice the night before. The hotel specialises in delicious Sicilian traditional recipes, with usually a choice of fish or meat dishes. Vegetarian diets can also be catered for. Drinks are not included.
Please note: For later flight arrivals, dinner on arrival at the hotel will be a light meal consisting of items such as salad, cold meats and bread.
