This villa is in a very nice setting just outside the quiet village of St Marco di Castellabate, about 10 minutes walk to the centre. We had a few issues regarding some of the equipment in the apartment which we brought to the owners' attention however these were resolved immediately. The owners, Antonella and Massimo, who live in a ground floor apartment, are very nice and one evening provided a couple of local speciality dishes free of charge for us to try as a welcome. You can also help yourself to as many lemons as you can use which are scattered all over the gardens!
Our bedroom in the 'Orange' apartment was light, airy, cool and comfortable.
The pool area is well equipped with plenty of sunbeds for all the residents of the apartments and is an attractiive facility within the property. The website pictures do show an 'Al Fresco' lounge area however this did not seem to be available for guest use.
There is a medium size supermarket about 100 metres away and an air conditioned 'Pastcerria' next door which sells fresh bread, ice cream, pizza slices, beer and wine to eat in or take away, which is very popular. About 5 minutes beyond St Marco is St Maria di Castellabate which is livelier again with plently of bars and restaurants available and comes to life after 9pm. The area is dominated by the town of Castellabate which is a steep climb on foot, by car or bus however the views from the town are stunning, overlooking the whole Cilento Valley and the sea.
Although the owners say a car is not necessary, it is useful to get the best out of the area, especially at night.
This villa provides a base for a relaxing holiday in a beautiful part of Italy.
