Villa Virginia is situated approximately 1 km (0.8 miles) from the village of Santa Maria di Castellabate, and 2 km (1.2 miles) from the sea, in an
elevated position on a pine-tree covered hill overlooking the bay of Santa Maria
di Castellabate. The two-story building is surrounded by
private fenced grounds of 1000 square meters (10000 square feet). Both stories have large
terraces, kissed by the sun from the moment it rises in the morning to when it
sets on the sea. Upon your arrival you will immediately have in front of you the
blue of the sea and of the sky, the bright green of the pine trees and a wide
panorama of sea and hills on which your eyes will gently roam: you will be happy
to live amidst so much beauty for the length of your vacation, and you will
cherish this feeling for a long time when you are back home.
The garden and the terraces of the villa have a limitless view of the Gulf of
Salerno, from the cape of Punta Licosa nearby to the horizon on the far side,
with the unmistakable profile of the island of Capri and of the Amalfi Coast.
On the sides and below the villa you will be able to see the slopes of the short
hill that gently descend as a natural amphitheatre towards the sea. The hill is
verdant with ordered vineyards and olive groves that interrupt woods of pine
trees. Ancient stone houses and villas are scattered around the vegetation. At
the highest point of the hill, sheer above the sea, stands the medieval castle
You will reach Villa Virginia driving along a uphill alley for approximately 800
meters (half a mile) from the center of the village. The alley climbs up the
slopes of a hill covered by Aleppo pine, a kind of pine tree that grows close to
the sea, and a protected species of the Cilento National Park. The alley is only
used by the residents of a few vacation villas partly hidden among the pine
trees, and it ends a few meters past Villa Virginia. You will find the closest
shops, a restaurant and a supermarket at 800 meters (half a mile) downhill from
The swimming pool
At Villa Virginia you will find at your disposal a 10 x 6 meters (32 x 20 feet)
swimming pool. The pool is set in the middle of a white
terrace that stretches in front of the living room towards the blue of the sea
and of the sky. The terrace is decorated with a white balustrade and pots
blooming with red geraniums.
The sun deck around the swimming pool is equipped with umbrellas and 14 sun beds.
The deck has special non-slip tiles that stay always cool: your kids and you
will be able to walk barefoot, even when wet and under the hot summer sun.
Close to the swimming pool you will find a small changing room with toilet and
washbasin, as well as two external showers with hot and cold water.
The pool gets sunlight from the morning to when the sun sets on the sea. In the
summer time you will enjoy swimming in the evening and by night. The swimming
pool and the surrounding area can be lit in a discreet and evocative way with
lights set into the flooring, which will allow you to admire the starry sky and
the reflection of the moon in the sea. And when you are done swimming you can
jump under a good hot outdoor shower, before wrapping yourself in a robe!
The pool is open all year round (although it is outdoor and not heated).

that rising behind the hill fills with light the valley and the sea, or to
admire the red sunsets on the sea in the evening.
