Villammare: Holiday homes & holiday apartments

Although charmingly situated directly at the seaside in the plains of the Gulf of Policastro, Villammare is still an insiders’ tip even for those familiar with the Cilento.

However, the short trip it takes from the coastal road at the southern end of the Cilento is really worthwhile.

Insider's tip at the Gulf of Policastro: Holiday homes & holiday apartments in Villammare

The small village of Villammare came into being at the beginning of the 20th century, when rich families from the neighbouring hillside villages settled round the few fishermen’s homes of the ancient ‘fishermen’s stronghold’ (“borgo marinaro”). The fishermen’s homes were grouped round the church of Santa Maria di Portosalvo and round the coastal watchtower dating from the 16th century and built by the Normans as a means of protection against the Saracens.

Today small fishermen’s homes alternate with the palazzi of rich noblemen along the Lungomare.

Appealing port promenade

The heart of active village life beats at the appealing port promenade with its numerous bars and shops. The variety of restaurants ranges from typical pizzerias to noble trattorias.

A wide sandy beach (with some stony sections) stretches from Villammare up to Capitello.

The day of holy Santa Maria di Portosalvo is celebrated on the first Sunday in June, the day of holy San Giovanni on July 24th. Market-day is on Tuesdays.

Nearest train station: Sapri.
