These crystal blue waters
and soft white sandy beaches are among the most beautiful in the
world and offer a utopian backdrop for a great relaxing family holiday. Just a few hundred miles north of the Sahara Desert, the warm Mediterranean
Sea and its many ports are a haunt of the world’s rich and
famous yachting community. The whole region of Magna Graecia and
the north African coastline is also unrivalled in its epic history,
dating from the ancient Greek Colonisation to the Roman Empire.
In the very waters that the Villa Saveria faces onto were discovered
the famous Bronze Statues of Riace in 1972 by recreational divers.
Now on display at the National Magna Graecia Museum in Reggio Calabria,
these priceless artefacts are considered among the greatest achievements
of Ancient Greek sculpture
