In the coming weeks, Th Resorts will be reopening the Italian Touring Club‘s natural paradises, 3 villages located in some of Italy’s most beautiful and unspoilt seaside areas, inside national parks: on the island of La Maddalena, on the Tremiti islands and on the Cilento coast at Marina di Camerota.
Since 2016, the villages have been managed by Th Resorts, which shares with TCI an idea of all-round sustainability, based not only on the protection of the surrounding environment, but also on allowing guests to savour the essence of each destination, also involving travellers in the historical and artistic culture of the place.
From 2019 TH Resorts will also be exclusively involved in the marketing of the three structures
The three villages seem to best represent this 2021 restart of tourism, “the right opportunity to rethink,” says Giulio Lattanzi, director of TCI. On the one hand, overtourism, and on the other, sustainable tourism, which is the goal for which we have always fought. Not the consumption of territories, but a use that preserves them. The Italy of territories is full of opportunities to be exploited, as we do for example with our Bandiere Arancioni (Orange Flags), which certify the quality of environmental tourism. We need to stimulate a new culture of travellers and tourism: one needs to grow and the structures and infrastructure need to be adequate”.
There are numerous and varied opportunities to practise sports (including sailing, canoeing, windsurfing, swimming, archery, volleyball, tennis, five-a-side football, table tennis, etc.), take exclusive nature walks, participate in environmental education and awareness activities, with the support of marine biology teachers always present in each village, and enjoy genuine Mediterranean cuisine.
The Tremiti village will open on 4 June. This summer, in addition to all the usual activities, there will be Sup (stand up paddle) courses and new shore excursions, such as GeoPuzzle, a journey to discover the geological peculiarities of the archipelago.
Marina di Camerota will be back in operation on 12 June. It is the ideal village for families with children, for whom the stay is free. The village, set in one of the most enchanting places in the Cilento National Park, extends over about 7 hectares, guaranteeing up to 200 square metres of usable space per guest, to enjoy a holiday in complete safety.
The latest to open in order of time will be the La Maddalena village on 14 June. Located in one of the most beautiful corners of the Sardinian island, in Punta Cannone and surrounded by 5 hectares of dense Mediterranean scrub, it will be equipped with a new excursion point within the structure, to manage all the sea and land experiences of guests, with a range of offers developed in collaboration with the new company NausDream, which from this year will also operate in the other Th Group structures. This year’s offer includes themed weeks dedicated to yoga, mountaineering and astronomy.
“The Covid – says Stefano Maria Simei, Th Resorts sales and marketing director – has increased the demand for the Touring facilities, which, thanks to the large spaces, guarantee a holiday in total safety. In 2020, total capacity was reached for the 3 structures, which had a reduced occupancy of 40%. Tremiti was the most popular destination, with the highest number of repeaters, i.e. guests who have stayed at the resort at least twice in the last 4 years, reaching concentration points of 35%. The market has responded very well again this year, prompted by the early booking offers, so much so that we have almost reached the 2019 results for the same period and are at 75% of budget”.
