Love, effort and energy have been put into the restoration of this old casolare (country house) in Montecorice by the owner, who lives in Switzerland. The result is remarkable: On a property of more than 1,300 m², Villa Marina with its lovely stone façade represents the manor of an ancient farm complex. Flourishing bougainvillea and roses, head-high cactuses as well as olive and fig trees add Mediterranean charm.
While staying at this holiday home you are sure to enjoy life out in the open to the full, for example on the ca. 200 m² terrace with sea view in front of the house: share your meals there, relax on one of the sun beds or indulge in your holiday read in a quiet, shady spot under the old olive tree. The sea-view balcony on the upper floor runs along the entire length of the house.
The 140 m² holiday home covers two floors, high ceilings provide for an airy atmosphere.
In the ca. 30 m² living-dining room on the ground floor of Villa Marina you can share meals with your family or friends and build a fire in the fireplace in the evening. The living/dining room offers access of the terrace and the upper floor of your holiday home.
The kitchen, which opens onto the terrace, too, is 'separated' from the living room by a nice stone arch. Solid wood characterizes the fitted kitchen, which is well-equipped and includes a dishwasher as well as a German-type coffee machine - apart from the typical Italian espresso makers; there is a dining table with four chairs in the kitchen area.
A guest WC with bidet and a washing machine are also found on the ground floor.
The four bedrooms with double bed and air conditioning (warm and cold air) each are found on the upper floor. Three of the rooms open onto the balcony. One of the rooms with access of the balcony has an en-suite bathroom with shower/bidet/WC. The second bathroom with shower/bidet/WC is accessible from the hallway. The fourth double (without balcony) offers additional sleeping facility for a third person (single bed) as well as a children’s cot and is furnished with a fireside.
On the brick-work grill in the out-door area you can prepare delicious holiday specialties. The warm and cold water outdoor shower under a lemon tree and with a view of the sea is highly appreciated by most of the guests.
Parking is available on the premises.
The premises of Villa Marina are located in the golden cut of the valley. The fact that neither TV nor telephone nor WIFI are found in the house is based on the owner's idea of his villa as an oasis of peace, quiet and relaxation and his aim to convey and share this feeling with his guests. Enjoy Italian country life and authentic hospitality and let nature and sea work their magic.
The nearest beach (pebbles, rocks) is at San Nicola a Mare and about 3 km off. If you love and prefer sandy beaches, you could go to the smaller beach near Agnone and to the marvelously wide sandy beaches near Acciaroli.
Your holiday home is located in the district of Roviscelle. Grocery stores and quite a number of café bars are found in the main village of Montecorice 2 km off.
A worthwhile hike along the coast, with stretches along the seaside and through fragrant macchia, takes you to Punta Licosa, the Sirens’ cape. The cape and the offshore island are named for Leucosia, the Siren who according to legend sought death there as Ulysses – seemingly unimpressed by her song – had his men keep on rowing and pass her by.
If you prefer to explore the Cilento hinterland on foot, you might hike from Pioppi to Acciaroli, for example. Walking along traffic-free roads and country paths you meet with marvelous views. Climbing Monte Stella is also worth the effort. From its peak you can look far into the south of Campania. It is really worthwhile to take in the rural face of the Cilento!
