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!

Abbiamo soggiornato in questo spettacolare appartamento a Villammare per una settimana alla fine dell'estate. L'appartamento è al pian terreno di una fantastica villa in pietra con tante terrazze con vista sulla baia. Il salone è enorme e la cucina molto ben accessoriata. Letti molto confortevoli e cuscini in lattice. Siamo rimasti colpiti dalla pulizia e dal fatto che la struttura è ancora più bella di come appare dalle foto. La piscina con vista sul mare è un bijou, pulitissima come tutto il resto. La sera dalle terrazze della villa si vedono le barche dei pescatori che pescano nella baia. Villammare è una destinazione ottimale per una vacanza in famiglia. Servizio spiaggia eccellente al lido sulla spiaggia sotto la villa. Molte possibilità di escursioni nei dintorni. Speriamo di ritornare la prossima estate.
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.
