Cilento romantic beach-front cottage for two with sea views - Nestled in a lush Mediterranean garden close to Maratea, within walking distance of a local restaurant and pebble beach, this charming, fully air-conditioned, stone-built cottage enjoys spectacular sea views over the Tyrrhenian. It shares extensive grounds, a large swimming pool, and private access to the secluded pebble beach with its sister property, Tramonto Rosso (IT1578) and two more villas on this small private estate.
This delightfully renovated, rustic cottage is simply furnished and provides a cosy, romantic getaway off the beaten track of mass tourism. Take a dip in the swimming pool or a short stroll down the path to the lovely pebble beach where you can sunbathe and swim in crystal clear waters. In the evening dine al fresco under the covered terrace watching magnificent sunsets over the sea. There is a small private garden within the larger grounds of the estate which are stocked with olive trees, cacti and scented shrubs. Just a few minutes' walk is a good restaurant serving typical Italian delicacies.
This unspoilt coastline alternates between ample bays, rocky cliffs, sheltered coves, strips of sandy and pebble beaches as well as an array of caves perfect for scuba diving and snorkelling. The best vista spanning the entire Cilento coast can be enjoyed from the statue of Jesus the Redeemer in Maratea; well worth the drive up the mountain! Take a boat trip to really appreciate the coastal caves and inlets, or a day trip to the archaeological site of Paestum, the WWF Oasis of Morigerati or the renowned seaside resorts of Palinuro, Acciaroli and Marina di Camerota. Alternatively, heading eastwards, you could reach Matera, recently nominated European Capital of Culture for 2019, and visit its remarkable ‘Sassi’ (meaning ‘stones’), which are prehistoric dwellings dug into the calcareous rock.

The Local View
Maratea, the ancient Thea Maris (Goddess of the Sea), is a place suspended between a crystal sea and rugged mountains that offers a truly amazing range of attractions for guests. Here you can discover shipwrecks and archaeological finds, lively beaches, small sandy coves and caves, such as Grotta delle Meraviglie, a picturesque village and a mountain ridge with interesting nature trails. In my opinion Cersuta is the most spectacular stretch of coastline in this area. Just a short walk away from the little villa is the restaurant "Da Cesare" very well known by italians for its quality food and a good value for money. The ascent to Monte San Biagio it is strongly recommended; at its top the Basilica of St Blaise is the most important religious building in the town. By the famous statue of Christ the Redeemer you will enjoy breathtaking seaviews. In clear days, you can even seee as far as the Aeolian Islands in Sicily.
