We are about to disclose the secret of Posto segreto – the secret place, as the son of owning family Guida called it right from the start. We are talking about two modern and very inviting holiday apartments, which were built towards the end of 2018 on the family’s spacious premises above Santa Maria di Castellabate.
'Sheltered' by tall pine trees, the private terrace of each apartment opens upon a view of the sea, the green of the Cilento and the beautiful coastal town lying at your feet. The apartments are about 75 m² in size each and accommodate two and four persons respectively. They are located on the ground and first floors of the building, include free WLAN and parking right in front of the house.
You enter the apartment into the ca. 30 m² combined kitchen-living-dining-room, where French windows and two accesses of the sea view terrace make for a bright and friendly atmosphere. A cozy couch corner and dining furniture for four are found outside, on the terrace.
The kitchenette in the back part of the spacious room includes 4-burner gas stove, oven, dish washer, toaster and refrigerator with freezer compartment. The apartment has two bathrooms, one with shower cabin and WC and accessible from the living area; the second bathroom is accessible from the bedroom and features WC, large shower cabin and bidet.
The lovely and spacious bedroom with double bed and large wardrobe is located next to the combined kitchen-living-dining-room. The apartment also includes a small storage room.
The outdoor area of the apartment runs the length of the house and is partly roofed. Enjoy lunch or dinner and the Cilento atmosphere out in the open, in the shade of the olive tree 'integrated' into the terrace and with the coast and the sea always in view. There is also a small lounge corner with sofa and two chairs, which is a lovely spot for relaxing.
A separate exterior staircase at the back of the house runs up to the 1st floor apartment, which sleeps four persons in two bedrooms. The double bedroom with en suite bathroom is very lovely, as its large windows open upon an unobstructed view of the sea and French doors open onto the sea view terrace.
The en suite bathroom features shower cabin, WC and bidet. The second bathroom is identical in furnishing and accessible from the combined kitchen-living-dining-room. Furnishing of this apartment includes a sofa, a chest of drawers, dining furniture for four persons as well as a kitchenette with gas stove, oven, dish washer, toaster and refrigerator with freezer compartment.
The second bedroom is a twin with wardrobe. Both the two bedrooms and the combined kitchen-living-dining-room open onto the furnished sea view terrace with awning. Another terrace is found on the back side of the apartment.
A washing machine for shared use is available in a separate room. In the immediate vicinity of Il Posto Segreto there is another holiday apartment, Casa Renata.
Whatever you should be looking for during your holidays, at Castellabate and in the northern Cilento you are sure to find something to fit your wishes and interests. At the fine sandy beaches of Santa Maria di Castellabate only 1 km from the holiday apartments, you can enjoy swimming in the sea, taking walks and relaxing in the sun from May to the end of October. There are both free beach sections and sections with service, i.e. sun bed and parasol rental.
The center of Santa Maria di Castellabate with its beautiful church Santa Maria a Mare, its picturesque promenade and countless bars, restaurants and ice cream parlors is also only 1 km off. Very good and typically Cilentan dishes are served at slow food restaurant Le Gatte right on the edge of town. With its quarry stone façade and arches the restaurant is easy to recognize.
The mountain village of Castellabate is worth at least a visit. In the evening, it is wonderful to stroll through the narrow alleys, to stop at a bar for an aperitif and to enjoy the sunset from the belvedere. The cuisine of Cantina Belvedere is absolutely worth a try.
Excursions to Paestum with its Greek temples and countless buffalo farms as well as to Pioppi with its maritime museum and Dieta Mediterranea exhibition are also worthwhile. The two towns are conveniently and quickly reached by car.
