Campania beach holiday rental - Vista Mare is a modern, three-storey villa built in a traditional style, set 124 feet above sea level with stunning views of the Golfo di Policastro that stretch for miles along the Cilento coast.

The villa is comfortably furnished in a contemporary style and each level is self-contained, making it ideal for larger groups.  Outside there is ample space for everyone to come together and enjoy the stunning sea views from one of the many terraces, lounge in the shade of a huge Mediterranean oak tree, soak up the sun around the pool, or enjoy a meal on the rustic ‘taverna’ dining terrace.

The beach at Villammare is only 800 metres away and in the summer has lively beach cafes and facilities. The village centre offers a small selection of bars and restaurants. Nearby Sapri is a larger town with good train links to Salerno and Naples. Inland, the charming hilltop village of Vibonati is lit in ever-changing colours during the balmy summer evenings. Villammare itself sits at the southernmost point of the Cilento National Park – the second-largest in Italy, stretching across a huge mountain range and an important ecological area with abundant wildlife. There are many historical sites to visit, from the famous and impressive Certosa monastery at Padula to the Ancient Greek temples at Paestum and the atmospheric, abandoned village of San Severino di Centola.  Natural sites include the enchanting Hair of Venus waterfalls (Cascate di Venere) half an hour away at Casaletto Spartano, the Grotte di Castelcivita caves inland, and the Capo Palinuro sea caves, and numerous other places.

This stretch of the Tyrrhenian coast is rugged and unspoilt – a glimpse of the Amalfi of the past, before it was ‘discovered’. Why not take a boat trip from the delightful port at Scario to Porto Infreschi, passing caves and hidden coves en route, and order a fresh seafood lunch from the boat-cum-restaurant which is moored in this tiny natural bay. Or drive south to see the impressive statue of Christ high on the mountain above Maratea.  If the hydrofoil service is running - it is charmingly erratic! - you can reach the Amalfi coast and the island of Capri from Sapri harbour within 3 hours during the summer months – the perfect way to enjoy the Amalfi coast without staying in the tourist hustle and bustle!

“ This is a wonderful family villa with a relaxing, friendly atmosphere.  The Cilento National Park takes in one of the most attractive strips of the Tyrrhenian coast with its long sandy beaches, a colourful seafront fringed with palms and eucalyptus trees, small restaurants, cosy hidden coves.  Villammare is the perfect seaside resort for families in search of friendly and charming spots off the beaten track.  Breathtaking views from the hills covered with centuries-old cork oaks, treks in the mountains, cruises along the Cilento Coast, mouth-watering regional cuisine, and the special friendliness of the locals will draw you back to this region year after year. ”
