Villa Clara is a lovely large villa in an ideal location, just 100 meters from the beach and 600 meters from the port with restaurants, bar, and ferry dock. Fully enclosed with privacy hedges and a big garden, the villa is quiet, secluded, and private, but with plenty to do and see in walking distance. Villa Clara is a classic family vacation home, with large interior spaces, high ceilings and ample rooms. It is furnished with a mix of quality classic italian antiques and comfortable more modern furnishings in the common areas. There is WIFI throughout, SKY television, and free parking on-site.

The large garden is rich with mature olive trees that give shade and sun in just the right mix.  The pool area is entirely fenced with a short 50cm fence for small children's safety, and is furnished with sun loungers. There is also a working jacuzzi section in the pool.

The villa is about 600m down from the Port of Torchio, in Manerba, with 2 excellent restaurants as well as a bar/gelateria and a boat rentals company.  

At the tip of the peninsula, just a few hundred meters from the villa, you will find the water bridge to the Isola dei Conigli, a park and wonderful natural preserve. At low tide, a bridge forms between the mainland and the island, and at high tide you need to wade in water up to about knee height. The isola dei conigli is a favourite haunt for locals, wonderful for picnics!  And just by the water bridge, is the pizzeria for the local campsite (outsiders welcome!), for great lakeside dining in just a 2 minute walk from the villa.

 On the other side, you will find the Pisenze beach just under Rocca di Manerba. At its foot you will find a wonderful restaurant, la Pisenze, as well as a hardcore trekking track taking you up theRocca.  For an easier trek, you can go from the road and follow the road and then the nature paths up to the top of the Rocca, an archaeological and nature preserve where there are the last known examples of some very special orchids once thought extinct. There are fascinating ruins as well as an archaeological museum in the park which also has a bar and food, and there are hiking trails through the park.
