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!

Insider Tips

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.

  • Both our holidays were unforgetable.


    This is the second time we spend our holiday at the Villa Once during the summer period in 2014 and now during autumn with a group of 9 people and we used all floors. Both our holidays were unforgetable. We were warmly welcomed by the owner, which made us feel at home immediately and during our stay he helped us with any question we had. The house is fully equipped and lives up to every expectation you might have. The beds are good, the kitchen has everything you need for a big family and washing machine is available. The kids loved the pool. There are terraces all around the house to enjoy the sun all day whilst the views are spectacular! We enjoyed the outside kitchen with bbq and pizza oven, stayed outside late on the covered terrace even in our autumn holiday. The house and grounds are very well looked after with a lot of love and eye for detail. The housekeeper will come in every day, a great luxury and a lovely person. There is lot to do around Villamare, the beach, a boattrip but also cultural visits like Peastum. Both times we returned home feeling a little sad to leave this wonderful place, but promissing to come back... (Review shared with Quality Villas from the villa Owners guest book)

  • The villa provided an excellent setting

    Mrs N

    "The villa provided an excellent setting for a relaxed family vacation. The property was very well maintained and had a beautiful quiet location, yet within walking distance from the beach, shops and restaurants." (Review shared with Quality Villas from the villa Owners guest book)

  • We miss our "martini" under the bright stars

    Mrs B

    "We found what we were looking for and we had a wonderful stay. We will come back next year with relatives and friends. PS: We miss our "martini" under the bright stars of the italian sky and obviously...the pooooool!" (Review shared with Quality Villas from the villa Owners guest book)

  • The villa is very well presented.


    The villa is very well presented. The service level of the staff is excellent. Villa is in a good position in Villammare - close to beach, shops and restaurants/cafes although the car is recommended. Private pool very clean. Good design and layout. We would stay again and would recommend to others. (Review shared with Quality Villas from the villa Owners guest book)

  • a perfect choice for us.


    this was a perfect choice for us. Several friends from Rome and I shared the entire house for 2 weeks and we couldn't have been happier. The house is lovely, spacious, and beautifully decorated. The photos don't do the decor of the first floor justice. It's even more elegant than the pictures. And the kitchen is a dream. The location is breathtaking, the garden stunning, the pool is perfect, etc. The Owners care and love for the property is in evidence everywhere. And the housekeeper, Anna, is an absolute marvel. We loved being able to invite our friends to stay in the apartments upstairs. It's really the perfect situation for guests; we got to eat together and spend the day together but whenever we or our guests wanted it, there was always privacy to be found. We also fell in love the the Basso Cilento. Villammare is tiny but has two wonderful restaurants. We rented a boat a couple of times to explore Punta degli Infreschi and Cala Bianca and both days were unforgettable. We love the house and can't wait to go back (Review shared with Quality Villas from the villa Owners guest book)
