Family De Bellis' holiday apartment Casa Marida waits to welcome you in a former church dating from the 12th century and where, until the beginning of the 19th century, the bishop of Pisciotta celebrated workday masses.
The historic building is found in Pisciotta's car-free, medieval center, somewhat below today’s village church and in wonderful panoramic hillside location.
The two balconies of the holiday apartment open upon a gorgeous panoramic view across Pisciotta’s terracotta-colored rooftops and the silvery-green olive groves as far as the sea and the Cape of Palinuro. Inside Casa Marida, rooms more than 4 m in height and 100 m² of living space provide for a sense of spaciousness.
The apartment includes a spacious living room with dining area, couch, Sat-TV (with English channels) and access of a French balcony, an eat-in kitchen with fitted kitchen units, two large bedrooms and a bathroom.
One of the bedrooms is furnished with a double bed and an infant bed. In the second bedroom, which is a pass-through room, the twin beds can be rearranged to form a double bed or converted into a small sofa. This room opens onto the furnished, south-facing balcony, where a parasol provides for shade and from where you enjoy an unobstructed view of the sea and the Cape of Palinuro.
Furnishing of the kitchen includes refrigerator with freezer compartment, gas stove and oven as well as dining furniture. Apart from the sink there is a basin for small in-between laundry. From the kitchen you enter the bathroom with masonry shower cabin, WC, bidet and washing machine.
When you are at Pisciotta for the first time, it seems to you as if time there has stood still. That makes for the special charm of the small mountain village, which yet, year-round, displays an 'active' village life and a sense of togetherness you can almost touch.
At the village and only ca. 150 – 200 m from Casa Marida, you find whatever you need during your holidays: small grocery stores, a piazza with bars, ristoranti, pizzeria and newsstand, a greengrocer’s, a store selling local fish specialties (Alici di Menaica), a car, bike and scooter rental.
The family of your landlady Rosangela has been producing olive oil from the Pisciotta olive for years and a small bottle of this local olive oil awaits you as a hello and welcome gift. The olive groves are located right before your eyes - you need only take a look from the balcony.
The beach of Marina di Pisciotta is at a walking distance of ca. 1 km along a footpath (partly steps); by car it takes you only a few minutes to get there. Marina's beaches are without service. You can, however, rent sunbeds and parasols onsite by the day and decide on 'your`nicest spot at long Acqua Bianca beach.
A boat tour on the crystal clear waters of the sea along Pisciotta's unspoilt, wild-romantic coastline is a very special (bathing) experience. There are two boat rentals at Marina's harbor; a boat license is not required for the small motor boats. Do take along your camera to capture the beauties of the coastal landscape.
From Marina di Pisciotta organized boat tours with local fishermen, also found at the harbor, take you to the sea grottos of Capo Palinuro and of marine nature park Infreschi.
Travel/arrival by car: Public parking is found on the edge of the village center, about 200 - 300 m from Casa Marida. The nearest parking facility is the parking garage before you reach Piazza Pinto. More parking spaces are found outside the village center.
