Maratea: Holiday homes & holiday apartments

Although the imposing cliff line near Maratea is geographically not part of the Cilento anymore, for us – like for many other experts on Southern Italy – it simply belongs to the Cilento.

Magic of the Mezzogiorno: Holiday homes & holiday apartments in Maratea

Here, between Campania to the north and Calabria to the south, lies the only access to the Tyrrhenian Sea of the Basilicata region. It is within this coastal strip of 25 km, one of Southern Italy’s last bathing paradises, that our comfortable Maratea holiday homes and apartments are located.

Crystal clear water and lush vegetation, which stretches from the beach up to the heights of the hinterland, distinguish the landscape around the famous small mountain town of Maratea.

Idyllic and yet – especially in the evenings – unbelievably lively, Maratea with its narrow alleys, squares, bars and exquisite restaurants still spreads the magic of the Mezzogiorno. And, last but not least, there is the statue of the Messiah, which stands enthroned above all this on Monte San Biágio and is visible from afar. 

Dream of a coast and bathing paradise

Gorgeous sandy and shingle beaches as well as magnificently clean water invite you take a sunbath or a swim anywhere along the Costa di Maratea.

Particularly lovely shingle beaches and idyllic bathing bays are found near Marina di Maratea. Castrocucco and its kilometers of sandy beach mark the end of this unique cliff line. A distinctive feature of the Costa di Maratea are its black lava beaches and its sea of a shimmering turquoise blue, e.g. at Cersuta. In 2015, Spiagga del Nastro in the comune of Cersuta was even declared Italy’s second most beautiful beach by the environmental organization Legambiente. 

At Porto Maratea, boat tours and diving courses are organized from May to mid October. You can also visit several fascinating lime stone grottos which are accessible only from the sea. 

Maratea, the famous small mountain town

Maratea, founded in the 13th century, lies on the steep northern slope of Monte S. Biágio. The heart of the historic Old Town is Piazza Buraglia, from where you can explore the center of Maratea conveniently on foot. Via terraced alleys you arrive at Piazza S. Maria Maggiore with the church of Chiesa Madre.

In the baroque building of monastery Convento dei Cappucini, which is located somewhat outside the Old Town to the east, an exhibition of archaeological findings from the surrounding area offers insight into Maratea's ancient past.

"Cristo di Maratea"

From Maratea, a scenic road runs up to the top of Monte S. Biágio (624 m), where you find the Santuario di S. Biágio, which was built upon the remains of an ancient Minerva temple by Basilian monks between the 6th and 7th centuries and was then redesigned in the 13th and 18th centuries.

The relics of S. Biágio, the town’s patron saint, are kept in the Reggia capella. At the beginning of May, there is a one-week celebration in honor of S. Biágio.

On your way to the peak and its statue of Christ, which measures a good 21 meters in height, you pass the ruins of Maratea's oldest district.

National park Parco del Pollino

With its almost 2,000 km², Parco del Pollino, which is located round the Pollino massif, is Italy's largest national park.

It offers ideal conditions for hiking and mountain biking.

With its nature still intact and its contemplative mountain villages, it is a place you are sure to enjoy
By the way: The Cilento National Park is only 30 km off.
