The breath of the Provence seems to flow through this completely redesigned holiday apartment in Località Paradiso near the town of Santa Maria di Castellabate. Realizing the literally paradisiacal design of the rambling premises with pool was a matter of genuine importance to Maria, the owner, who was born in France. Mediterranean plants and gnarled olive trees provide a nice contrast to the blue shimmer of the nearby sea, which, from the terrace, is always within your view.
The holiday apartment may well be called stylish. Light hues and distinct lines make for a pleasant and cozy atmosphere. The apartment includes a spacious living-dining room, a kitchen, a bedroom and a bathroom.
In front of the living room, which you find yourself in when entering Il Giardino degli Aromi, there is a spacious and very well-tended terrace. An old olive tree offers pleasant shade on warm days. A sunshade, a wooden table and chairs, loungers and a stone grill create an inviting outdoor ambience. From the terrace, you have got a good view of the whole pool area as well as the evergreen hilly landscape of the northern Cilento. The sea stretches away on the horizon. On very clear days, you can even see as far as the Amalfi coast with the Isles of Capri and Ischia.
Il Giardino degli Aromi accommodates up to three persons. The bedroom is furnished with a double bed; for the third person, there is a sofa bed in the living room. The latter also includes dining furniture, TV and a bench. The adjoining open kitchen is equipped with gas stove, mobile oven as well as refrigerator with freezer compartment.
What catches your eye in the bathroom, which is accessed via a small staircase, is the large masonry shower cabin in very modern fair-faced concrete design. Of course, there is also bidet and WC.
The owners’ apartment is on the upper floor of the lovely quarry stone house; they use it for short stays during the summer months only. The pool (ca. 4.5 m x 11 m), a pizza oven as well as a washing machine (in an extra room above your terrace) are, therefore, for shared use. The marvelous view of the sea, which you also enjoy from the pool area, is a special highlight. Upon request WiFi is available in the apartment.
Il Giardino degli Aromi is only about 3 km from the famous mountain village of Castellabate, which is not only a UNESCO-listed World Heritage Site, but has also been the setting of a movie. You should not miss out on strolling through the narrow alleys to the belvedere of the village.
It is only a few kilometers to the coastal town of Santa Maria di Castellabate. A lively seaside promenade with bars and restaurants and golden sandy beaches await you there. The sandy beach closest to the holiday apartment is found in the district of Lago (ca. 4 km).
Small grocery stores, a butcher’s and a bar which offers lunch specials are about 900 m from the apartment.
The fact that the coastal towns of Santa Maria and San Marco di Castellabate have, to this day, remained active fishing villages becomes apparent in an impressive way especially in May. For a whole month, during the „Festival delle Arti Marinare“, the communes concentrate on their old seafaring and fishing traditions. There are numerous cultural events, but also small markets which offer degustation.
Nearest train station: Agropoli-Castellabate (ca. 10 km).
