It was built at the end of the 19th century, on the green hills between Agropoli and Paestum, in amazing panoramic location – country house Villino Torone
Roberto Pisani has restored the quarry stone buildings with great care. It is not without reason that he goes into rhapsodies about the romantic sunsets, when the sun disappears into the sea behind the gently rolling hills in dazzling colors.
The sandy beach of Agropoli is 5 km off and reached by car within a few minutes.
The famous temples of Paestum are about 10 km off.
Villino Torone is located somewhat apart, above the main building. It is laid out for two adults and a child.
The holiday home's interior is characterized by beautiful solid wooden furniture, which underlines the pleasant, rural atmosphere.
Walls half a meter strong provide for comfortable temperatures even in summer.
The small, typical quarry stone house (‘rustico’) includes a tastefully furnished combined kitchen-living-dining room with sofa bed (suitable only for children), a double bedroom and a bathroom with shower/WC/bidet.
The combined kitchen-living-dining room opens onto the roofed terrace, where you can settle back with a bottle of red wine, take in the marvelous view of the sea and enjoy the ‘vita cilentana’. Let your gaze roam across the Gulf of Salerno to the Amalfi Coast and as far as the Isle of Capri
A washing machine for shared use by all the guests is found in the main building.
The 8,000 sqm property is home to a large variety of plants, amongst others olive and fruit trees.
Parking is available on the premises.
Those who value healthy and regionally produced food are in the right place here. The owner, Roberto Pisani cultivates fruit and vegetables without using pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Furthermore, he bakes naturally-leavened sourdough bread and offers home-made jam and home-produced organic oil as well as wine. All these delicacies can be tasted and of course bought on site. Signor Pisani will gladly set up contact for you with the local shepherd, who offers home-made sheep’s milk cheese for sale.
The nearest grocery stores are found 1.5 km off, in the small mountain village of Ogliastro Cilento, the comune Villino Torone belongs to.
Our tips for excursions into the nearer surroundings: Agropoli, Paestum, Castellabate and the Calore gorge of Felitto.
Paestum, which is often called the “Gate to the Cilento”, is an excellent starting point for excursions to sights of cultural interest, such as Pompeii, Herculaneum, Velia or Padula.
And the Cilento National Park with its picturesque mountain and fishing villages is located right at its doorstep.
From the fifth century BC on, two important centers of Greek culture were found along the coast of the Cilento: Poseidonia, later to become Paestum, and Elea, present-day Velia.
Even today, you can visit three extremely well preserved Greek temples. It was only in 1968 that the "Tomb of the Diver" was discovered – its five frescoes bearing significant testimony to antique artistry.
The owner of Villino Torone speaks English.
Nearest train station: Paestum. It takes about an hour by train to get to Pompeii and Herculaneum, for example.
