The old house in the green of the Nationale Park of Cilento and Vallo di Diano, has been recently renovated but it still keeps its old features ( woodden high ceilings and old furnitures). From the large bright terrace, you can enjoy a gorgeous view on the valley, dotted with small delightful villages, over Castellabate and the Amalfi coats and Capri. The house stands in the hostorical centre of the medieval town Cosentini Cilento, " the town of the old stone tubs", hilly hamlet of the XII C. Commune Montecorice . The town with its lanes offers emotions for a very relaxing holiday. Walking along roads lined with fig trees and age - old olive trees, from Cosentini you can reach Fornelli C.to, " the village of the beautiful gardens", where the white fig DOP ( with protected denomination of origin) grows, and Ortodonico, built around the typical tower. The sea here is crystalclear, awarded with the Blue Flag : the most important town is Agnone C.to, 5 Km far from Cosentini, and the area Ripe Rosse with a wood of 100 hectares of Aleppo pines. Not far from here there are the famous touristic resorts of the Cilento: Acciaroli, Santa Maria di Castellabate and Agropoli.

Perfect location in friendly Italian village
We had a wonderful 10 days in this charming property. Vincenzo and Concetta responded quickly and in detail to all our pre-trip questions and greeted us on arrival with mozarella, tomatoes, olive oil and limoncello! They were also extremely helpful and considerate throughout our entire stay (on one occasion, the lights fused due to a heavy - and unseasonal - thunderstorm, yet Vincenzo responded to our request for help within 30 minutes and managed to get the problem sorted for us the same evening). The house is located down a small side street and the accommodation is simple, yet comfortable. The 'wow' moment comes when you step out onto the terrace at the back, with its panoramic view over the beautiful Italian countryside. You can see for miles and we took picture after picture of the constantly changing sunsets. The property is ideal for a family (it can sleep up to 5) or a couple and we found it to be a great base for our holiday and a lovely place to come back to at the end of each day. Everyone we met in the village was friendly and kind (on one occasion, someone we'd never met turned up on the doorstep with a huge bag of apricots). The local shop was a real bonus too and we were able to buy most of what we needed there at reasonable prices. There are no restaurants in the village itself, but the nearest seaside town is Agnone, just a short (5km) drive away, where there's a small but attractive beach and a promenade that has a number of friendly cafes and restaurants. Also within easy reach by car are the medieval village of Castellabate, the beautiful harbour at San Marco and, in the opposite direction, the slightly larger Acciaroli, with an open-air market every Monday morning (perhaps other days too, but we only went there on a Monday). If you are looking for an authentic taste of Italian village life that is a little off the usual tourist trail then this is ideal. We'd love to pay another visit some time!

Très agréable maison de village
La maison est typique située dans une petite ruelle charmante. La vue sur la terrasse est splendide. Nous avons passés une agréable semaine de repos. Les propriétaires sont très accueillants: leur huile d'olive fabrication maison est délicieuse !
Encore merci à eux pour l'accueil.
Fijn huis, mooie omgeving, geweldig uitzicht.
Leuk huis in een klein dorpje met authentieke bewoners. Prachtig uitzicht vanaf het terras, elke avond een andere zonsondergang. De eigenaars zijn zeer sympathiek en zij hadden diverse heerlijke (streek)producten neergezet. Het huis was zeer schoon. Je kijkt uit op Castellabate en er zijn diverse leuke stranddorpjes binnen een kwartiertje rijden, zoals Agnone, Pioppi en Acciaroli. Je kunt daar heerlijk eten. De streek is totaal niet toeristisch (alleen Italiaanse toeristen) en heerlijk rustig.
E stato un a bella vacanza nella casa in Montecorice. La famiglia Nicolellis è molto sympatico. La vista dallo terrazzo é meravigliosa. Si vede dappertutto il mare e anche Castellabate. Vicino sono belle spiaggi dove si mangia benissimo. È un' posto dov'è si sente tranquillo.

Heerlijk rustiek huis met panoramisch uitzicht.
Wij hebben genoten van het huis en de zeer gastvrije ontvangst en verwennerijen door de eigenaar en zijn dochter. Hoewel beperkt Engels sprekend werd ons goed duidelijk gemaakt wat we van de omgeving en het huis konden verwachten. We werden getrakteerd op zelfgemaakte olijfolie en limoncello en tomaten met de echte Cilento buffelmozzarella. Het dorpje is prachtig gelegen en ook de andere inwoners zijn aardig en gastvrij. In de omgeving is voor wandelaars en liefhebbers van het goede Het huis was zeer schoon en met voldoende bad en linnengoed. Voor de prijs hoef je het niet te laten !
