This villa is a modern, three-storey villa built in a traditional style, set 124 feet above sea level with stunning views stretching 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. All the accommodation have light , bright and airy atmospheres and are furnished in a simple and elegant taste. It is the ideal solution for family meetings at the beach.

Villa Le Cannicelle has been picked in 'The Times' 50 best coastal villas in Europe. It is positioned on a hillside at 56 meters above sea level, just 600 meters from the beach, and commands a spectacular Mediterranean vista - views stretching down to the farthest mountains of the Calabria region (the mountain range that soars above Diamante and Paola) on one side and as far as the Punta (Cape) of the Infreschi and the wild coastal tract bearing the same name between Scario and Marina di Camerota on the other side. Two thirds of the estate is covered with lush woodland thick with cork oak, a plant typical of the environmental niche stretching along the coastline of the Bay of Policastro between S. Marina and Sapri. Surrounded by a big enclosed garden, it is the perfect accommodation for families with children and for those who wish to take their pets on holiday with them!
As an exclusive service, guests staying at the villa can book the villa’s skippered boat, for trips to Sapri, Palinuro, Porto Infreschi, Acquafredda, Scario or Maratea beaches where you can watch the sun set or visit some of the many natural sea caves with their mesmerizing, colorful reflections: these are holiday memories to treasure for a lifetime. Private skippered boat needs to be booked at the time of booking.
Daily tours to Napoli, Pompei, Herculaneum, Matera. During summer months guests can reach the Amalfi Coast, Positano, Sorrento and the island of Capri by hydrofoil from Sapri harbour – the perfect way to enjoy the Amalfi coast without staying in the tourist hustle and bustle!

Dr. Marzio De Nardo purchased this villa in 1989
A dream destination! With exceptional sea views of the Cilento coast. Unspoilt and moutaineous surroundings, superb food and friendly people, this villa is a really special discovery in this spectacular region of Southern Italy.
A very special destination
and a rare find, this contemporary villa,
situated in the hills above Villammare,
enjoys captivating views along the unspoilt
Cilento coast. A paradise for families
wishing to escape their stressful and busy
city lives. The villa is extremely spacious
and well equipped with numerous terraces
on which to relax with a glass of wine and
soak in the views before dining together on
the wonderful covered taverna area with its
pizza oven and barbecue. From the large
private pool and its surrounding terrace with
sunloungers and outside pool, guests can
enjoy the views of the Mediterranean and the
Golf of Policastro reaching beyond Maratea
to the south and the Costa degli Infreschi to
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.
Le Cannicelle 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. Marzio's 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.
Splendida villa al mare per passare le vacanze in famiglia. Accoglienza straordinaria da parte di Marzio proprietario della struttura e del suo staff. La mia famiglia si è sentita come a casa. La piscina con vista sul mare è stata la ciliegina sulla torta. Villammare inoltre gode di un caratteristico lungomare e ci sono tante possibilità di escursioni nei dintorni. Ottimo il rapporto qualità prezzo dei servizi. La consigliamo a tutti, specialmente alle famiglie con bambini.
This is the second time we spend our holiday at Villa le Cannicelle. 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....
La villa vista dal vero è molto meglio di quanto si veda nelle foto. Il panorama è fantastico, la casa curata nei minimi particolari. Gli spazi ampi e ottimamente organizzati permettono di godere appieno la vacanza senza bisogno di spostarsi. Per altro il territorio circostante è meraviglioso e vario. Per quanto riguarda la cortesia e la disponibilità del sig. Marzio dieci e lode. Consigliatissimo
Da rimanere senza fiato…. una vista panoramica sul golfo del Cilento che non ha uguali. Il nostro soggiorno è stato bellissimo: villa splendida dotata di tutti i comfort, grande piscina in posizione panoramica, tramonti indimenticabili, ospitalità impeccabile! Assolutamente da non perdere.
Villammare is an ancient fishing village at the foot of the extensive Cilento National Park. The Park takes in one of the most attractive strip of the Tyrrhenian coast swathed by the vivid colours of the Mediterranean flora.
Long sandy beaches, a colourful seafront fringed with palms and eucalyptus trees, small restaurants, cosy venues and cottages make of Villammare the perfect seaside resort for travellers from all over the world, in search of friendly and charming spots off the beaten track.
Breathtaking views from the hills covered with centuries-old cork oaks, trekking the mountains and cruising along the Cilento coast, mouth-watering regional cuisine and the special friendliness of the locals captivate visitors all year round.
