"Buongiorno, just look at that terrific vista of Baia di Trentova!" are the words Signora Antonietta welcomes us with in her realm. Fascinated, we let our gaze roam over a landscape of gentle, green hills, which gradually end at one of the northern Cilento’s most beautiful bathing bays.
The small residence with 6 lovingly designed apartments and colorful outdoor area is located on a rise which lies somewhat apart between the historic town of Agropoli and the wide sandy beach of the said bathing bay. Both cultural highlights and the fascinating landscape of the Cilento National Park lie within a radius of about 1 km.
From among Antonietta’s individually designed apartments, it was holiday apartment "Stella" on the 1st floor that caught our eye.
You enter the apartment into the living-dining room with kitchenette, dining furniture for four and a small sofa, which may well be suitable for a short siesta. The kitchenette is held in blue and reminds you of the nearby sea. It includes 4-burner gas stove, small oven, refrigerator with freezer compartment as well as all kinds of kitchen utensils for daily use.
The apartment includes a bathroom (shower, WC, bidet) as well as a bright bedroom with double bed, a bunk bed suitable for children and - a sunny touch. The bedroom opens onto the roofed balcony, which is screened from view and where you can start into your day with breakfast out in the open and a breathtaking, far reaching view of the bay of Trentova.
The apartment also features SAT-TV, internet (WLAN) and air conditioning with heating system. A children’s cot for very young guests can be provided upon request. An outdoor shower and a washing machine are for shared use. Parking is available on the fenced premises.
'Cozy and colorful' describes the outdoor area of Casa Rizzo. The large inner courtyard with colorfully tiled arches and artfully grown Mediterranean plants may be a parking area, but it is also a real eye-catcher. At dusk, with the arches subtly illuminated, the atmosphere is close to magic.
Above the inner courtyard, a sun terrace has been arranged for apartment Stella as well as the two neighboring holiday apartments. Relax on the sunbeds and chairs whenever you want, recharge your batteries, escape everyday life for a while and - enjoy the Italian sun.
Baia di Trentova, which stretches out charmingly before your eyes, is about 1 km from Casa Rizzo. If you don’t mind the ascent and descent, you can even walk to the bright, fine sandy beach with its characteristic rock. Legend has it that once upon a time 30 gulls’ eggs – trenta uova – were found beneath this rock, hence the name of the bay.
In the opposite direction and ca. 1.5 km off lies Agropoli with its picturesque harbor and lovely, well-preserved Old Town, where you find quite a number of restaurants and bars, museums, churches and hidden chapels. The town’s landmark too sits enthroned there – Castello Aragonese. During the summer months, you can profit from the good maritime connections to the Amalfi Coast for an excursion to the "Divine Coast".
You can do your daily shopping at Agropoli as well as at a supermarket located out of town and easy to reach by car.
Not far from Casa Rizzo you hit upon the hiking trail to Punta Tresino and further on to Santa Maria di Castellabate. The panorama to both sides of the small headland is amazing. To the north, you see Agropoli and the Gulf of Salerno stretching out. To the south, you see Punta Licosa – another worthwhile hiking destination in the area.
Castello Aragonese is not only an impressive reminder of Agropoli’s eventful past, but also a unique venue for open-air concerts, dance and theater performances as well as themed markets during summer season.
