A beautiful quarry stone façade and a „ tower“ in shining white characterize La Molinella, an elaborately, tastefully renovated farmhouse. It has got a spacious, sunny terrace and harmonizes perfectly with the rolling green of the private villa park below the medieval village of Laureana Cilento.
The daughter of owner Raffaele was in charge of and responsible for the ‘replanning’ of La Molinella. The young architect made a point of imbuing the impressive house and the 1,500 m² premises with an unobtrusive elegance which is also reflected inside the house.
The location of the beautiful, 260 m² holiday home is very attractive. Lively Agropoli and its popular bathing bay Trentova is within eyeshot as is the medieval village of Torchiara with its wonderful belvedere across the sweeping landscape of the Cilento National Park. It is 15 minutes by car to Castellabate, which the movie „Welcome to the South“ has made rather widely known. At the feet of the lovely mountain village lie the bathing resorts of Santa Maria and San Marco di Castellabate.
Holiday home La Molinella offers a lot of space, inside and out, for easy-going holidays with your family or friends. The tastefully furnished living-dining area with inviting sofa 'corner' and two large dining tables covers the length of the ground floor. At the far end it is 'completed' by a small, separate home bar, which is furnished with an unostentatious designer glass table. In the sofa corner in the front part of the room, a semicircular picture window opens upon a view of the green slopes between Agropoli and Laureana Cilento.
Two stone arches 'separate' the living and dining areas. In former times, this part of the farmhouse was where the stock was kept and there were narrow openings for airing. The latter were turned into windows to provide for more light in the living area. Three doors let you onto the spacious, furnished terrace.
The kitchen and a half bath are also found on the ground floor. La Molinella was planned to be a Bed & Breakfast and is therefore furnished with a professional kitchen, which includes a large preparation/work surface, a gas stove with oven, a dish washer, a refrigerator, a freezer, a microwave and a small coffee machine (capsules).
The kitchen opens onto a small terrace with masonry grill and pizza oven at the back of the house. Take your Pizza Cilentana from the oven and savor it in the cozy, roofed seating area on the terrace.
In the 4 bedrooms, two on the 1st and two on the 2nd floor, the original beamed ceiling of the old farmhouse provides for a very special feel-good atmosphere. The rooms are very similar in furnishing, each room includes a double bed and a chair bed as well as an en-suite bathroom. The well-tended bathrooms are nearly the same in design and lay-out: bathtub with shower device, bidet, WC, hair dryer and heating. One of the bedrooms on the 1st floor opens onto a terrace. Two smaller panorama terraces, where you can take sunbaths or to simply relax, are accessible from the stairway.
Further conveniences of the holiday home include air conditioning in all the rooms, free WLAN, fly screens in the bedrooms as well as in the living-dining area. Parking is available right next to the house.
Be it mountains, hiking, bathing, sea, culture or culinary highlights – La Molinella is the ideal starting point for any kind of holiday. To the south of Laureana Cilento, the area around Monte Stella, which rises up to 1,131 meters, is great for hiking.
The coast between Agropoli and San Marco di Castellabate is lined by idyllic bathing bays and fine sandy beaches. The beach closest to La Molinella is at Baia di Trentova in the southern part of Agropoli, ca. 7 km off. The bathing bay is easily reached by car.
You can do your shopping at Agropoli, 4 km off (e.g. at supermarket Maxi Futura on the main road). There are a lot of restaurants and bars in the lovely centro storico of Agropoli. In the medieval center of Laureana Cilento, in a stately 15th century palazzo, typical and traditional Cilentan cuisine is served at Luisa Sanfelice’s hotel-restaurant Sgroi.
L’Alveare del Cilento at Laureana Cilento is a honey farm, at which various kinds of organic honey and of jam are produced. The products can be bought onsite; the farm is open to shoppers in the morning. A sign indicating the way to the honey farm is found on the main road. Those who love wine should stop at Winery De Conciliis in Prignano Cilento, where the excellent wines can be tasted and bought onsite.
