At the charming coastal town of Marina di Maratea, in an exclusive residential location, Villa Cati lies hidden between palm, pine and olive trees. What you have no idea of when entering the terraced sloping premises: the large and very cozy terrace offers a view of the sea so beautiful you might find it on a picture postcard.
Your gaze roams across the surrounding, evergreen slopes towards the steeply sloping coast. High above Maratea, the Redentore, the Statue of Christ, keeps watch over this short coastal stretch of the Basilicata. In the distance, you see Monte Bulgheria saluting you across the Gulf of Policastro.
In between lies the sea, resplendent in vivid cobalt blue, gently washing the steep shore. Such intense color is often found at the beaches of this area, too, whose characteristic shade of black is of volcanic origin.
When you enter the villa’s well-tended interior, you first find yourself in the spacious living-dining room. A sofa corner with TV as well as a dark, elegant wooden table with six chairs provide for a thoroughly cozy atmosphere.
The kitchen in the adjoining room is equipped with 4-burner gas stove, oven and microwave, refrigerator with freezer compartment, washing machine and dish washer. The table with four chairs is the ideal place for a quick snack. French windows let you onto the terrace.
A narrow hallway takes you to the three bedrooms of Villa Cati, two doubles and a twin. From the somewhat larger double bedroom you can take in the wonderful view of the deep blue sea right after getting up in the morning.
The adjoining bathroom is furnished with a bathtub with shower device and screen, WC and bidet. There is also an extra guest WC.
From the terrace with its rattan furniture and extra large sun shade, you enjoy a picturesque view across the sea towards the Cilento. Wouldn’t you like to spend the day here or on the chic wooden sun loungers?
Moreover, the paved open areas under the roofed part of the terrace as well as around the house are lovely spots to sit or lie down and relax, too. The well grown garden not only offers pleasant shade, but also a typically Mediterranean lay-out with an appreciation of the „bellezze della natura“.
An external spiral staircase takes you to Villa Cati’s small roof terrace. The view from up there is simply great. It is the perfect spot for a sunbath – that is why Italians tend to call it „solarium“.
Furnishing of the villa includes grill and outdoor shower. Two cars can be parked on the fenced premises.
Shopping facilities, bars and restaurants are easily reached.
The nearest restaurant is only about 500 m, the nearest grocery store about 1 km off. Experience the special atmosphere of Maratea’s historic center, which is ca. 5 km off and easy to reach by car.
Bathing spots along the Lucanian coast are numerous and varied. Those who do not want to do too much looking around will find the nearest beach only 1.5 km from Villa Cati. Whatever coastal stretch you decide upon, you will always meet with best bathing conditions and clear, clean water.
Those who love hiking can look forward to a rich offer of trails and tours. Maratea is, in fact, very conveniently located between Italy’s two largest national parks – the Cilento and the Pollino (Calabria) National Parks. Should you want to start off with an easy hiking tour, then we recommend the rather pleasant walk from Piazzale Padre Pio at Maratea up to the top of Monte S. Biagio, which is adorned by the Statue of Christ.
