In the very south of the Cilento, not far from the fishing village of Villammare, in the idyllic-green residential area of Capitello lies holiday home La Cicala. Surrounded by a fragrant garden, in which you hear the merry song of the cicadas, and three sunny terraces, the villa may be the ideal accommodation for those who prefer to spend their holidays far from any tourist crowds.
Spend an idle hour on the garden swing and enjoy the fascinating panorama offered by the Gulf of Policastro. Give in to the call of the pool, 12 m in length, which lies sparkling in the most beautiful shades of blue directly in front of the entrance to La Cicala.
What else may passionate bathing vacationers wish for? It is, of course, wide sandy beaches and excellent water quality, which you find only ca. 400 m from the house. A long bathing section, partly sand, partly pebble, stretches for several kilometers from Capitello to Villammare.
With its 4 bedrooms, La Cicala sleeps up to eight persons. Furthermore, the house includes a full bathroom and an extra WC as well as a well-equipped live-and-eat-in kitchen in the entrance area. The kitchen is equipped with gas stove and oven, refrigerator, microwave, coffee machine and dish washer. The room is also furnished with two sofas and a chair.
The bedrooms are as follows:
The bathroom is equipped with shower cabin, bidet and WC. The extra WC includes not only a WC but also a bidet and a wash basin.
Further furnishing in the house: La Cicala includes TV, radio, free WLAN, air conditioning in the bedrooms and washing machine. There are fly screens in the windows and doors.
The well-tended garden surrounding the house is a real feel-good oasis. On the terrace accessible from one of the double bedrooms and located at the back of the villa you feel at ease with the lush nature of the southern Cilento.
The spacious terrace facing the pool and the sea is the perfect outdoor living room. The large, roofed entrance area adds outdoor living space to the live-and-eat-in kitchen; even the owners love to use it as a „dining room“. The view of the sea and the mountains stretching towards Maratea is simply great.
The adjacent sun terrace, which has been completely redone, is furnished with deck chairs and loungers. The large parasol comes in handy on sunny-warm days.
Then it is straight into the 12 m x 5 m pool, where you can either swim your laps or simply enjoy the refreshment. If you want more action, then dive off the diving board into the cool water of the pool.
Further amenities in the outdoor area: The pool area includes an outdoor shower and a garden swing. There is also a grill.
Parking: Several cars can be parked on the fenced premises.
At Capitello and in the surrounding area you find everything you need to make your stay a pleasant one. A grocery store as well as bars and restaurants are about 1 km from La Cicala. The beach of Capitello is at a walking distance of ca. 400 m.
When you take a stroll through the fishing village of Villammare, 3 km off, with its lovely lungomare, then do stop for a meal at Taverna Portosalvo. The seafood restaurant is very popular in the area for its excellent seafood cuisine.
Passionate bathing vacationers should take a short trip to the neighboring Basilicata region. Along Maratea’s picturesque steep coast you find secluded bays, mysterious sea grottos, black sandy beaches and crystal clear water.
A tip given by the locals: the beaches at Acquafredda di Maratea. The small coastal town is only ca. 15 km from La Cicala. And from there it is only a stone’s throw to the so-called Redentore – the statue of Christ, standing 21 m high, is Maratea’s landmark and a popular destination on the Lucanian coast.
The nearest train station is at Sapri (ca. 8 km). There you can rent cars, scooters and bikes. Boats can be rented at the harbor.
