A piece of ancient past is waiting for the guests of the two holiday apartments called Le Terme di Velia in Marina di Ascea.
The casolare, a former farmhouse originating from the 19th century, is situated in the middle of a venerable olive grove. Here, archaeologists have recovered the remains of ancient thermae, which lent their name to the Terme di Velia.
“History in the present” – according to this motto, the owners have also completely renovated their half of the house in 2006.
In the apartment “Il Mosaico”, chosen for you by us, you find a ”pezzetto di un antico mosaico”, which was found during the renovation work and skilfully integrated into the kitchen wall.
The farmhouse has kept its rural character due to the facade architecture built of rocks.
On the inside, the sympathetic couple of owners succeeded in creating a stylish and at the same time comfortable atmosphere with the arte povera furniture typical for the region.
The generous sleeping/living area with its double bed and two fauteuils offers enough space to relax.
The built-in air conditioning, which can also serve as heating, provides for a comfortable room temperature at all times of the year.
Your bathroom is equipped with shower/bidet/WC.
The living area is smartly separated from the kitchen-cum-dining room by a broken-through wall, steps and a nice round arc. Here you prepare with fresh fruit and vegetables from the market, sweet-smelling bread and a “vino delle casa” your holiday meals. Olive oil must not be missing in any case: just ask the owners, who run their own azienda agricola in Ceraso, for a bottle of this “liquid gold of the Cilento”.
Holiday in the south means holiday outdoors! There are innumerable possibilities to spend the days outside. A terrace with view upon the Tyrrhenian Sea and a pergola-terrace, from which the view drifts across the soothing green of the olive trees, make this holiday dream come true. The well-tended garden may be shared by all guests. From there you can see all the way to excavations of the ancient Greek town of Elea (today called Velia).
Upon request, we also will gladly reserve for you the adjacent apartment “Il Pozzo“, which is laid out identically (also for a maximum of 3 guests). Both holiday apartments may be joined to form a large family apartment. Please ask!
Be enchanted by a spot of Southern Italy which has remained authentic: olive tress, the farmer’s family living in the house next door, the location of the Terme di Velia aside from beaten tourist tracks and the traces of bygone times at your doorstep create a special feeling. And yet the nearest beach is only about 800 m away – ideal, to combine a holiday in the green with bathing and culture.
You may park your car next to the property. Bicycles will be provided to cyclists by the owners upon request. A TV set is let by the owners for a fee.
There is also a shuttle bus that takes you from the holiday apartments to the sandy beach "Lido Velia" and back for free.
The nearest grocery stores, bars and restaurants are found in Marina di Ascea, about 1 km from the house.
Nearest train station: Ascea.
