San Giorgio Albanese is a charming village on the Ionian coast of Calabria,on the northern slopes of the Sila Greca, perched on a hill 428 meters above sea level and surrounded by valleys and small valleys in the middle of olive trees and orange groves. The village is rich in culture and tradition: the Albanian dialect of the founders is still spoken on the streets and the ancient Greek of the Byzantine tradition is stills spoken and sang in the church.

San Giorgio Albanese is in a strategic position overlooking the Valley of Sybaris, which is the largest flat land of Calabria, and the Ionian Sea. This setting offers a majestic view of the rugged mountain chain Pollino, the Sila and the wonderful lush blue of the Mediterranean Sea. The Ionian Sea is just 20 minutes from the town and the coast is dotted with numerous villages, organized beaches and miles of beach, where there are rocks and fine sand.

The heart of the Sila, Camigliatello Silano, is just 1 hour drive. Just before Camigliatello you can visit the National Park of the Sila, punctuated by the famous "pino laricio" and a thriving wildlife, among them being the wolf. The village is also near Rossano, with the charming church of the "Patirion" and the "Code Purpureum"; Corigliano, with the Medieval Norman Castle; Sybaris, with the archaeological museum and the ruins of Ancient Greece.

This strategic geographical position is perfect for all types of holidays: sea and beaches, hiking and mountain trails, food tourism and historical / cultural holiday.
