Neilson has added a new club to its summer 2018 line-up with the addition of Airone Beachclub in southern Italy.

It brings the operator's portfolio of summer beachclubs to ten, and the total destinations to four, with other clubs located in Croatia, Greece and Sardinia. Airone Beachclub is in Calabria, in southwest Italy, where it is located in the arch of the foot of the country’s famous boot shaped peninsula, looking out across the Ionian Sea.

The large sandy beach at Airone Beachclub has ample space for guests keen to make the most of the waterfront location - whether dinghy sailing, windsurfing, paddle boarding, kayaking or swimming. A huge range of inclusive tuition sessions are available and Neilson instructors are on hand to help guests try something new or improve existing skills. Royal Yachting Association (RYA) courses are also included in windsurfing and sailing, while tennis fans will appreciate the four new courts, with inclusive coaching for all ability levels.

A multi-sport court also provides the ideal spot for children of all ages to enjoy a variety of team sports including basketball, while a fitness deck will play host to a range of classes, including HIIT, Pilates, yoga, circuits and Zumba. Airone Beachclub is great for families too with its spacious grounds, sandy beach, shallow waters, kids’ pool and ten fun-packed clubs for children of all ages.

An abundance of family and interconnecting rooms are located in the main property, which is designed in style of a grand old villa and provide ample space for families to relax after energetic days on, and off, the water.

The beachclub is just a short transfer of one hour 40 minutes from Lamezia Terme Airport.

The operator's managing director, David Taylor, said: “Last year saw the introduction of three new beachclubs in Sardinia, Croatia and Greece and two new activities… a tough act to follow but we’re delighted to be heading to yet another new destination in 2018.

"Airone Beachclub is an established property which provides a great natural environment for all the inclusive activities out on the water that we’ve become famous for over the years. But with the addition of new tennis courts, kids’ clubs and fit less facilities, our land-based activity programmes will be fantastic too; we can’t wait to open the doors in May 2018.”

Prices lead in at £699 per person including flights; transfers; seven nights’ accommodation on a club board basis (daily breakfast and lunch plus four evening meals); a range of inclusive activities with equipment, tuition and courses; and free children’s clubs for those aged two-17 years.
