Spacious Villa Riviello lies in a well-tended private park on Maratea's picturesque steep coast. The beautiful holiday home for up to 8 persons is found on completely fenced premises with sea view, planted with olive trees and sloping in terraces down to the sea, which with its turquoise blue color forms a beautiful contrast to the dark beaches of this coastal stretch. The altogether 10 houses in the villa park share the park’s private bathing bay with pebble beach, which is about 300 m from Villa Riviello. Due to a landslide the bathing bay is closed at the moment.
Villa Riviello covers 3 floors. On the ground floor with rustic wood beamed ceiling, the spacious, comfortable living-dining room with XL sofa, fireplace, Sat-TV, solid wooden dining furniture and showcases takes up most of the space. The dining area opens onto the large, furnished and partly roofed terrace with grill.
To the sides of the terrace you see those few coastal kilometers of the Basilicata region stretching out in all their beauty. While taking a sunbath, you enjoy not only heavenly quiet and the idyllic green of the garden, but also a gorgeous panorama of the sea.
The separate kitchen, also on the ground floor and with access of the outdoor area, includes gas stove, oven, dish washer, refrigerator with freezer compartment and a small dining table with chairs. The washing machine is found in an extra room.
Three of the four bedrooms as well as two of the three bathrooms are found on the upper floor of Villa Riviello. Each of these three bedrooms is furnished with a double bed and air conditioning and opens onto a small balcony with sea view. A children’s bed is available for young guests.
One of the two bathrooms, each with shower cabin, WC and bidet, is the en suite of a double room. The third bathroom, also with shower cabin, WC and bidet, as well as the fourth bedroom with double bed, sofa, air conditioning and access of a separate terrace and of the garden are found in the semi-basement of the villa.
At Villa Riviello you have got free WLAN access. There are two shaded parking spaces on the fenced premises right in front of the house.
From Villa Riviello to the private park's lovely rocky bay with small, dark pebble beach and turquoise blue sea it is only ca. 300 m, the last 200 m of which are a stepped path. Mention must be made that the stepped path might be closed due to weather conditions. Update June 2021: Due to a landslide the bathing bay currently is not accessible.
In the wider surroundings of Villa Riviello you find many romantic bathing bays and the black sandy beaches typical for the Basilicata region, e.g. at Punta della Matrella, ca. 1.6 km from the holiday home. Outside the months of July and August, you have got those beautiful beaches almost to yourself.
The town of Marina di Maratea is ca. 3 km, the harbor of Maratea ca. 2 km off. Above all in summer that is where life takes place and a handful of restaurants attracts you with delicious fish cuisine. The main town of Maratea with its charming Old Town and 44 churches sits enthroned on a plateau about 3 km from Villa Riviello. At Maratea, bars, grocery stores, ice cream parlors and various small shops are open year round. Supermarkets are also found at Calabrian Praia a Mare (ca. 15 km).
Maratea’s main attraction is, without doubt, the Redentore, the statue of Christ standing 22 m high on Monte S. Biágio and watching over this coastal section. From Piazzale Padre Pio at Maratea, you can start on a wonderful half-day circular hiking tour, which is suitable also for families. After arriving at the statue, at an altitude of 644 m, you meet with a breathtaking panorama of the Gulf of Policastro, the southern fringes of the Cilento region and the mountain tops of the Basilicata region.
