Marina di Pisciotta: Holiday homes & holiday apartments

Marina di Pisciotta is an authentic, contemplative fishing village, which counts about 150 inhabitants. Only during the Italian holiday months of July and August does this completely untouristy village awaken from its slumber. The free, sandy and pebble beaches invite you to go for a swim, to take a walk or to simply relax.

Off the tourist tracks: holiday homes & holiday apartments at Marina di Pisciotta

Bars spreading a summer-time atmosphere with terraces and seating accommodations right by the sea, small, but fine restaurants offering local seafood cuisine and the dreamy harbor, at the entrance to which the Madonna del Mare stands guard, where colorful fishing boats lie at anchor and sailboat mast rock to and fro in the wind - all this paints a characteristic picture of Marina di Pisciotta. For many decades fishing played the most important role in many hamlets of this kind by the sea. It is still part of 'Pisciottan' everyday life today and provides above all the ristoranti on the seaside promenade with fresh-caught fish and delicious seafood.

While in winter life 'takes place' mostly at the mountain village of Pisciotta, the Marina comes very alive during the summer months. Off the harbor lies the beautiful beach of Marina di Pisciotta, which, depending on the current, has either more sandy or more pebbly sections.

What the beach hardly ever is: crowded or overrun. Whereas in other places you find lidi crowding together, one next to the other, at the Marina you find only one small sunshade and sunbed rental without bar. What you might need to drink or eat is supplied by the bars and by Tipicoteca Cilentana on the seaside promenade, where you can order panini and warm meals to be delivered to where you are seated.

It is towards the evening that a charming atmosphere then envelops the village: beachgoers pack up and stop for an aperitivo at the bars while the sun slowly disappears into the sea. Women and men sit along the lungomare chatting about everything and anything. The Cilento's hilly landscape and the facades of Marina's houses are bathed in a warm orange hue, which is a delight to behold. Summer might be the nicest time of the year, but winter is the time of the most spectacular sunsets at the seaside. 

Our tip for the summer season: For a special, individual way of discovering the picturesque coast between Ascea and Palinuro, stop by the boat rental at the harbor of Marina di Pisciotta, where you can charter motor dinghies without license.

Fishing tradition "Alici di Menaica"

It is a centuries-old tradition which is kept alive at Marina di Pisciotta to this day: "Alici di Menaica" fishing - a method of fishing passed down by the Greeks. Only if you have got a license are you allowed to cast the specially knotted nets to catch anchovies off the coast between April and July. What is so special about Alici di Menaica apart from the method of fishing - only the full-grown fish get their heads caught in the nets - is the processing that follows. Immediately after the anchovies have been brought to shore, they are put in layers, each layer and space covered with coarse salt, into wooden barrels, where they are left to ripen for several weeks. It is a natural way of preserving the anchovies.

At the local restaurants you are sure to come across the Alici di Menaica again and again. So take a close look at the menus and you might get an idea or two for some new dishes. Cilentan cuisine is both simple and ingenious. What you need are simply the proper ingredients.

The Alici di Menaica are available onsite for example at Tipicoteca Cilentana or directly at the producer's in Pisciotta: at Marianna Coppola's Laboratorio Artigianale Menaica (in Piazza Pinto).

Picturesque mountain village of Pisciotta

It sits enthroned above the Marina, on a hilltop and visible from afar - the medieval mountain village of Pisciotta. From Marina di Pisciotta you can follow a ca. 1-km footpath to Pisciotta. The path is partly stepped and takes you straight to the village center. While "ascending", do take a break or two, turn around and enjoy the panorama that opens up behind you.

A 3-km drive along the road is another way of reaching Pisciotta. Parking is available around the village center.

Getting around with the Ape-taxi (Ape Calessino 58)

It is a very special kind of experience – Signor Nello’s Ape-taxi (for max. 3 persons), which, after prior reservation, takes you, for example, from the train station to the Marina or up to Pisciotta. Do not hesitate to ask us for help with the reservation.

The Ape-shuttle can also be called and used at any other time, even on the spur of the moment. Just call Nello at +39 339 149 1310, he speaks a little English. Waiting time for the Ape-taxi is, in general, not more than 20 minutes. The Ape runs between Pisciotta, Pisciotta-Palinuro train station, Marina di Pisciotta, Caprioli and Palinuro. 

Nearest train station: Pisciotta-Palinuro (ca. 2 km)
