In remarkably exposed location on Monte di Luna, the southern fringe of Marina di Camerota, in an old olive grove and face to face with impressive Saracen tower "Zincalo", lies Villa Zincalo.
Below the rambling premises of Villa Zincalo, the coast drops steeply into the deep blue sea. This uniquely beautiful coastal stretch is part of marine nature park Infreschi, which should be explored in two ways: on foot to discover the spectacular seascapes and by boat to take in the up to 180 m high rock faces and the mysterious sea grottos in all their beauty.
Apart from the villa with three apartments, separate guest house Casetta Zincalo is also located on the sloping premises. During vacation time, the owners, who live in Rome, usually stay at the apartment above the two holiday apartments on the ground floor.
Apartment type A includes a large living-dining room, a separate kitchen, three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The living area with dining furniture, sofa and SAT-TV opens onto the roofed terrace in front of the apartment.
The terrace, where old olive oil amphorae and stone arches make for a special atmosphere, is also accessible from the three double bedrooms.
The kitchen is equipped with gas stove, oven, microwave and refrigerator with freezer compartment, the bathrooms with shower, WC and bidet. The apartment features air conditioning in one of the bedrooms and heating.
The smaller apartment type B is similar in layout and includes a small living-dining room with sofa and SAT-TV, a built-in kitchen with oven, gas stove and refrigerator with freezer compartment, two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The two bedrooms are furnished with double beds. The larger bedroom and the living area open onto the apartment’s partly roofed terrace. The bathrooms are equipped with shower, WC and bidet. The apartment features gas heating.
As the daughter of the owners likes to stay at this apartment every now and then, it is available only on request.
The old, bulky olive trees, which grow up close to the terraces, make for a special and Mediterranean atmosphere on the premises.
You have got the best view of the sea, of Lentiscelle beach only 400 m off and of Marina di Camerota from the property’s communal terrace, where you find a stone pizza oven at your disposal as well as a small outdoor kitchen, where you can prepare everything for your 'pizza evening'. And all the while, you enjoy a fantastic view of the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Saracen tower at your feet.
The access road to Villa Zincalo is a country lane of about 200 m, which branches off the paved residents-only road and ends at the entrance gate to the premises. Sufficient parking is available on the fenced premises.
Laundry service is available upon request and for a fee; for this service please contact caretaker Maria onsite.
Alongside the premises, a trail runs down to Torre Zincalo (ca. 100 m) and further on down to the sea. It is a ca. 400 m walk to the pebble/sandy beach of Lentiscelle, which lies between Monte di Luna and Marina di Camerota.
The coastal hiking trail takes you to the bays of Cala Bianca, Pozzallo and the natural harbor of Infreschi. Between April and October, cooperatives Cilento Mare and Cilento Blu, both found at the harbor of Marina di Camerota, offer daily boat trips to these bays.
The center of Marina di Camerota is about 2.4 km off. In the center around Piazza San Domenico as well as along the seaside promenade and at the harbor you find restaurants, bars, ice cream parlors, stores and Consentino’s bakery. Two larger supermarkets are found at the entrance to Marina di Camerota. Once a week, a market takes place in the parking lot at the harbor.
Nearest train station: Pisciotta-Palinuro (ca. 20 km)
