Maratea: Holiday homes at the seaside

Although the imposing cliff line near Maratea is not part of the Cilento and the Campania region anymore, for us it simply belongs to this unique area at the Tyrrhenian Sea. So: Visitors to the Cilento should not miss out on stopping by Maratea!

Magic of the Mezzogiorno: Individual holiday homes at Maratea

Here, between Campania to the north and Calabria to the south, lies the only access of the Tyrrhenian Sea found in the Basilicata region: a coastal stretch of 25 km, which is considered one of Southern Italy's last bathing paradises. And that is where the comfortable holiday homes are located which we arrange for in the Maratea area.

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, visible from afar, the statue of the Messiah stands tall on top of Monte San Biagio.

Dream of a coast and bathing paradise

Gorgeous sandy and shingle beaches as well as magnificently clean water all along the Costa di Maratea make sunbathing at and swimming in the sea a delight.

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 shimmering turquoise blue, e.g. at Cersuta. Spiagga del Nastro in the comune of Cersuta counts among Italy’s most beautiful beaches.

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. A stroll through the terraced alleys takes you to Piazza S. Maria Maggiore and the church of Chiesa Madre.

In the baroque building of monastery Convento dei Cappucini, which is located to the east and somewhat outside the Old Town, an exhibition of archaeological finds 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 come across 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 the statue of Christ, which measures a good 21 meters in height, you pass the ruins of Maratea's oldest district. From the peak, you have got a wonderful view of the Costa di Maratea.

Parco del Pollino - Pollino National Park

Parco del Pollino, Italy's largest national park, covers nearly 2,000 m2 and is located round the Pollino massif. It offers ideal conditions for hiking and mountain biking. With its nature still intact and its tranquil mountain villages, it is a place you are sure to enjoy.

By the way: The Cilento National Park is only 30 km off.
