Should you be looking for authentic, Mediterranean holiday feeling, you might find yourself to be in the right place at Nella's and Franco's Il Patio sul Mare (formerly Casa Ester). The holiday apartment lies in Marina Campagna, the probably greenest and most idyllic district of Pisciotta. Old, tall olive trees define the landscape and offer a wonderful 'contrast' to the sea, which, when staying at Il Patio sul Mare, is always within your sight.
The cozy, partly roofed, 60 m2 terrace of the apartment is a Mediterranean dream. The long drive onto the property is lined by plants and flowers of vivid colors. Above the outdoor shower a bougainvillea displays its radiantly violet blossoms.
About 600 m from Il Patio sul Mare lies beach "64". The pebbly coastal stretch, which you can easily reach on foot, is frequented mainly by locals and in general not crowded in August either.
Lovely Il Patio sul Mare, which was partly renovated in 2021, is located on the ground floor of a two-unit house. The hospitable, discreet owners live on the upper floor.
You enter the holiday apartment into the living room with sofa, Sat-TV and dining furniture. Adjoining the living room lies the separate kitchen with , amongst others, gas stove, mobile oven and refrigerator with freezer compartment. From the kitchen you enter a utility room with shower cabin and washing machine. The bathroom with WC, bidet and hair dryer is located between the living and sleeping areas. The cozy bedroom is furnished with a double bed and a fan and opens upon a view of the sea.
A cot for young children can be provided. The windows as well as the entrance door of the apartment are protected by fly screens. Gas heating at Il Patio sul Mare provides for a cozy atmosphere on cool evenings. Parking for one car is available on the completely fenced property. One pet is allowed at an extra charge.
Marina Campagna is in general a place of peace and quiet, the latter interrupted during the day only for a few moments by the passing train, which 'dives' from one tunnel into the next. Otherwise the motto at Il Patio sul Mare is - relax.
A particularly good spot to do just that is the furnished terrace, which includes a dining area, an outdoor shower with warm water as well as sunbeds and which is screened from view. You have got an uninhibited view of the sea, which seems close enough to touch. One of the most beautiful and untouched coastal sections of the Cilento National Park stretches out to the north and to the south.
The district of Marina Campagna is home to one of Pisciotta's best restaurants. During the summer months, Vito Puglia's Perbacco delights your taste buds with an excellent fish cuisine and a large choice of local and transregional wines. All these delicacies are served in an old olive grove with sea view.
Daily shopping is done at the mountain village of Pisciotta, ca. 4.5 km off. Two small supermarkets, a greengrocer's and a butcher's are found in the immediate vicinity of Piazza Pinto. In the late afternoon, Cantina Lamadé below the piazza opens its doors and you can choose from among its offer of local olive oil and locally produced cheese and noodles. Do allow for some time at the Cantina and for an aperitif as well as a delicious antipasti dish there.
