You love hiking? You wish for relaxing peace and quiet? This might then be the ideal Cilento holiday accommodation for you. Villa del Sole, located on Monte Sant’Antonio between Camerota and Marina di Camerota, is a 'secluded', peaceful refuge in the midst of lush Mediterranean nature and offers a panorama you can hardly keep your eyes off.
The patio of the ca. 60 m² holiday home could not have been better placed. Enjoy a unique view while relaxing in the shade of a gorgeous olive tree. Let your eyes roam from the mountain village of Camerota down to Marina, which juts slightly out into the sea, and then on, far into Calabria, to the mountains of Pollino National Park.
From the entrance to the property and on very clear days, you even spot Stromboli in the distance. We felt this to be one of the very special moments while we were at family Marotta’s on Monte Sant’Antonio.
Villa del Sole includes a living-dining room with kitchen area, two bedrooms as well as a bathroom and accommodates up to four persons. The house is surrounded by premises of about 7,000 m². The lovely, partly very old dry stone walls traversing the villa’s olive grove add to the very special Mediterranean atmosphere in this place. Villa del Sole and the olive grove are completely fenced.
When you enter the holiday home, you find yourself in the combined kitchen-living-dining room, which is furnished with a small sofa and two chairs next to the fireplace, dining furniture and Sat-TV. The kitchenette, which includes gas stove, oven and refrigerator with freezer compartment, is well placed: you are able to enjoy the panorama of the mountains and the sea even while cooking.
From the living area you enter the bedrooms of Villa del Sole. The double and the twin are located next to each other. The windows in the bedrooms as well as in the living-dining area are fitted with fly screens.
The holiday home’s well-tended bathroom includes WC, bidet, shower cabin, hair dryer and washing machine.
Parking is available on the fenced premises, right in front of the house. Villa del Sole scores with sustainability: electricity is drawn solely from its photovoltaic system.
The outdoor area of Villa del Sole is quite cozy and comfortable. Gather round the long wooden table with benches to spend pleasant evenings outdoors. Prepare your meals in the large outdoor kitchen with pizza oven, brick charcoal grill, double burner gas hot plate and sink. This area is completely roofed and, of course, you can let your gaze roam far out to sea from here, too.
It is the sun patio in front of the house which is the perfect place for relaxing. The tall olive tree offers pleasant shade and provides for a very idyllic atmosphere. Make yourself comfortable on the loungers and enjoy the spectacular panoramic view of the sea, the Cilento, the Basilicata and Calabria. Another holiday home which offers such a breathtaking panorama might be hard to find.
From Villa del Sole you can start on either short or long hiking tours through the Cilento landscape. Passing nearby chapel Sant’Antonio, follow the trail along the coastline to Palinuro. Or walk down to Marina di Camerota and, perhaps, continue on to Cala Bianca and Porto Infreschi.
Should you want to spend a day at the beach: Marina di Camerota has got a good choice of great bathing spots and it takes you only about 15 minutes by car to get there. Besides going to the town’s beaches – Calanca and Lentiscelle – you might also take a boat trip to the bays of Pozzallo, Cala Bianca and Infreschi. Cooperativa Cilento Mare offers trips there and back; their boats depart at the harbor.
Shopping facilities are found at Camerota, about 3 km from Villa del Sole. Of course, there are also bars and restaurants, for example Al Castello in Camerota’s old castle. Ammor e Mare in Via Coppola at Marina di Camerota offers very good and traditional fish cuisine.
