able to enter to large terrace both from the bedrooms and from the living room.
The terrace is equipped with garden furniture and partly shaded by a canvas.
The house is built on the slope of a hill covered by pine trees. It is the top
level of an ancient country house, and it is surrounded by a plot of land where
citrus trees and olive trees are grown. The sloping terrain has made it possible
to build a private entrance to the villa, with an entrance gate that is totally
independent of the rest of the building. As a matter of fact, the rest of the
building, which has been built by the owners for their own vacations, can't bee
seen from Villa Renata as it is located under the large terrace.
Standing on the terrace or in the garden of Villa Renata you will not be able to
see other houses around you, except for those far away, scattered here and there
in the fields and in the olive groves, or clustered close to the sea.
From the main gate you will enter a small fenced rustic garden, where there is
the parking space.
In the garden you will find oleanders with pink flowers, a large fig and a few
century-old olive trees.
In the shade of the trees there is a table with chairs, as well as a long
brickwork bench on which you will be able to seat and enjoy the wide view of the
vegetation and of the sea.
The interior of the house is airy and luminous. All the rooms have a view of the
sea. From the terrace you will enjoy a 360-degree view, that goes from the hill
covered by the typical loca pine trees, behind the house, to the valley below
and all the way to the sea.
The view of the sea embraces the whole small bay of Santa Maria di Castellabate,
from the cliff of Punta Licosa, with its lighthouse, to the south, to the cape
of Punta Tresino, to the north.
This tract of the Mediterranean sea, famous for the beauty of its bottom and
rich in archaeological findings of the Greek and Roman ages, is a protected sea
park and it is a real paradise for divers.
On clear days your sight can reach the entire Gulf of Salerno, with the Amalfi
Coast and the island of Capri on the background. From this place you will also
enjoy spectacular sunsets over the sea and the view, at night, of the lights of
