A piece of the ancient past awaits you at Le Terme di Velia, a 19th century casolare in the midst of an olive grove. In the area around the casolare, a former farmhouse, archaeologists have recovered the remains of ancient thermae, hence the name of the accommodation with two holiday apartments at Marina di Ascea – Le Terme di Velia.
As the architectural design of the façade is partly quarry stone, the farmhouse has preserved its rustic-rural character. Inside, owners Pantaleo and Alberta have succeeded in creating a tasteful and at the same time cozy atmosphere with the arte povera furniture typical for the region. 'History in the present' is a motto the owners observed when renovating their part of the house.
For your stay we have chosen holiday apartment "Il Mosaico", where "un pezzetto di un antico mosaico", part of an ancient mosaic, was discovered during the works of renovation. It was then skillfully integrated into the kitchen wall, which adds to the special atmosphere at the holiday apartment.
You enter the apartment into the eat-in kitchen, where you can prepare your holiday meals with fresh ingredients from the market, fragrant bread and a "vino delle casa". Of course, olive oil is an absolute must-be: Do ask the owners, who also own an Azienda Agricola (agricultural enterprise) at Ceraso, for a bottle of the "liquid gold of the Cilento".
A few steps up from the kitchen there is a remarkable round arch shaped opening into the living/sleeping area. The window-like breakthrough in the wall catches your eye as well. The large living/sleeping area with double bed and two pull-out sleeper chairs offers space for relaxing and feeling at ease. Air conditioning with heating system provides for pleasant room temperatures at any time of the year. The bathroom is equipped with shower cabin, bidet and WC.
Holidays in the south are, of course, also days spent out in the open! Spots where to spend them are the roofed terrace with a view onto the Tyrrhenian Sea in front of the kitchen and the pergola-terrace in front of the bedroom, from where your gaze drifts across the soothing green of the olive trees. From the well-tended garden, which is for shared use by all the guests of Le Terme di Velia, you can see as far as the excavation site of the ancient Greek town of Elea (later Velia, then Ascea).
Upon request, we can also arrange for the rental of apartment "Il Pozzo" (also for up to 3 persons), which is located next to Il Mosaico and identical in layout. The two holiday apartments can be connected to form a large family apartment. Please ask!
WiFi access is available in both apartments. The washing machine in the rear part of the house is for shared use. Parking is available next to the property. The owners offer free pick-up from the train station (Ascea or Vallo Scalo).
Bicycles are provided by the owners upon request. A TV is let by the owners for a fee. For train travelers who require a car onsite for only a few days or some excursions, rental of a car can be arranged onsite by the owner.
The nearest shopping facilities, bars and restaurants are found at Marina di Ascea, about 1 km off. The nearest beach at Marina di Ascea is about 800 m off. There is a free of charge shuttle service from the holiday apartments to the sandy beach "Lido Velia" and back.
Give in to the enchanting atmosphere of this still authentic spot in Southern Italy: olive trees, the farmer’s family living next door, the location of Le Terme di Velia off the beaten tourist tracks and the traces of bygone times right at your doorstep make it so special.
Nearest train station: Marina di Ascea (ca. 3 km).
