The Borgo and surrounding area is located in the hills of the Tyrrhenian coast in Contrada San Franceso in the town of Gioiosa Marea (province of Messina) 300 meters above sea level. It is in one of the oldest settlements in the territory of Gioiosa Marea, which is known for its many settlements spread out along its panoramic, jagged hills. In this area there is a vast variety of natural environments concentrated among an area of about 20 square kilometers quickly rising from sea level to a height of 1000 meters. Being the greenest area of Sicily, green is everywhere. Not only along the sloping hills but also in the valleys. This leaves one truly amazed at the variety of flora: Mediterranean vegetation, forrests of oak trees, chestnut trees and evergreens, citrus and olive groves, different types of palm trees and colorful flowers of every kind.
The 4-star residence Borgo San Francesco is a newly restored hamlet situated above the seaside town of Gioiosa Marea (Messina). It is perfectly nestled in the green hills of the northeastern coast of Sicily, in an area known as Monte Nebrodi and the Saracen Coast.
