About the property

Villa Le Cannicelle

Directly managed by the owners with great care the villa is positioned on a panoramic hillside facing the sea, just 600 meters from Villammare long sandy 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.

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. A little piece of paradise for families and friends wishing to escape their busy city lives and experiencing the authentic Italian dolce vita and a truly memorable villa holiday at the beach.

As an exclusive service for guests staying at Villa Le Cannicelle, the local AVIS office can arrange one-way or return transfers from the airport to the villa. They can also deliver your rental car directly to the garden of the villa on your day of arrival. Please don't hesitate to ask for contact details of the local manager.

Private skippered boat can be arranged on request 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.

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!

Me and my sister Antonietta own this spectacular villa in Villammare. Following a huge passion for hospitality, some years ago at this family jewel we decided to open the door to the international quality tourism. Since 2005 so many families from all over the world have chosen Villa Le Cannicelle as location for their family meeting at the beach in Italy. The majority of them are keep gathering to the villa along the years for their family meetings.

We saw them growing up along the years and some of them can now even speak Italian a little bit. What a great joy for us!

Swimming pool very clean.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Stunning home in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

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.

Posto incantevole

  • 5 of 5

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.

Vacanza indimenticabile in una villa perfetta

  • 5 of 5

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....

Un vero paradiso.... con la piscina

  • 5 of 5

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

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.
