Global timeshare vacation exchange specialist Interval International has confirmed that Hotel Club Residence La Castellana is now part of its portfolio.
The resort, based in Calabria in Southern Italy, overlooks the scenic Tyrrhenian coast and is based just two miles from the historic centre of Belvedere.
The resort’s timeshare units are part of a larger complex that includes a 68-room hotel and 160 apartments.
Hotel Club Residence La Castellana offers guests a wide variety of on-site amenities, including three large swimming pools, tennis and volleyball courts, three restaurants, two bars, a gym, a spa and shopping bazaar.
The resort also has a privately equipped beach just half a mile away, with guests able to enjoy a choice of water sports, a restaurant with bar, swimming pool, and live entertainment.
Darren Ettridge, Interval’s senior vice president of resort sales and business development for Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Asia said he was delighted to welcome the units to their portfolio.
“Hotel Club Residence La Castellana captures the beauty, history, and charm of the less developed Calabria region in southern Italy,” he said. “The property is surrounded by lush gardens with palm, pine, and olive trees, making a beautiful setting.”
Calabria sits at the “toe” of Italy’s “boot” and the resort is set on a promontory overlooking the Tyrrhenian coast close the historic centre of Belvedere.
Roberto Torri, managing director of Eidos, the developer of the resort, added: “We are excited about venturing into timeshare with these first units and we expect to add more for our Italian market.
“Our partnership with Interval International will give our owners the ability to travel more widely through vacation exchange and also introduce Hotel Club Residence La Castellana to new markets worldwide.”
Calabria is renowned for its beautiful rocky coastline, breathtaking beaches and rugged landscape.
The region also has plenty of culture, with monasteries, castles, and palaces to explore. The town of Belvedere is dominated by an ancient Aragonese castle and home to two yachting marinas, making the resort ideal for a relaxing break amid plenty of historic sights to see.
Hotel Club Residence La Castellana is 58 miles (93 km) from the nearest international airport of Lamezia Terme.
