JUMP is based in Soverato (Catanzaro province), on the Jonian coast but the association cooperates with local partners and institutions of the surroundings towns and cities. Calabria region represents the deep South of Italy, known for the tropical climate and sandy beaches but also famous tall and green mountains.
During our trainings we also aim to make participants discovering the region, especially those old towns rich of culture, traditions, castles, small churches, narrow streets, colourful balconies, tropical flowers and local farms.
JUMP proposes to participants to be lodged

It's in a peaceful and safe district called "Cittadella" surrounded by hills of olive trees and other Villas. JUMP created a network of other similar b&b for when participants are more than 10, in order to assure the same quality with an amazing breakfast, all comforts and an international environment. Villa Gabriella is also the JUMP headquarter for Erasmus Plus projects with an office and all the necessary for the activities indoor and outdoor. The Villa is the meeting point for all guests during all trainings.
