Villa Nerola is unique. It is a detached homely cottage for two set in stunning countryside with spectacular sea views (guests tell us the photos don't do the property or the view justice) together with peace and tranquility. You instantly have a sense of being on top of the world in the little piece of paradise. Open all year round. It is only 15 minutes drive to the sandy beach at Baia di Trentova just outside Agropoli. There are sea views (and sunsets) from the patio, garden, sitting room and bedroom. It has a galleried bedroom, spacious open plan living and is well equipped for a self catering holiday. It has a private patio to the front and private garden to the side and patio surrounded by shrubs and plants with a plunge pool from the end of May to September. In the autumn and winter the lower terrace provides another area from which to sit and marvel at the sea view. It is in a rural location and offers spectacular sea views, stunning sunsets across to the Amalfi coast, countryside and wildlife although only a short drive to all amenities. Together with the owners' house it is set in 5 acres of land and countryside bordering the Cilento National Park. The quiet and secluded cottage makes a perfect place to relax and enjoy the sense of calm and tranquility that is so hard to find these days. We recommend the use of our 4x4 car to hire to our guests as our private track is steep, winding and uneven. We can collect from Agropoli-Castellabate railway station at no charge. The trains are cheap and easy to use and direct from Naples central station. A local taxi costs 150-160 euros each way from Naples airport depending on the time of year. The cottage is warm and cosy in the winter as it has a wood burning stove - light and airy in the summer with a plunge pool to cool down. A great location from which to explore the many medieval hilltop villages, a choice of sandy beaches and pretty coastal towns. The Greek temples at Paestum are only 25 mins away. The Amalfi coast, Pompeii, Herculaneum, Mount Vesuvius are only 90 mins away. The grotto at Castelcivita is 1hr drive. Buffalo farms to try out the creamy mozzarella and other produce are 20 mins drive with the only organic farm in southern Italy located near Paestum called Vannulo. Boat trips. Plenty of local countryside/sea walks, endless wildlife, peace, tranquillity, views that change during the day, sunsets to marvel at. There is plenty to do in the area at any time of year or just relax and watch the landscape change before your eyes from the sitting room or gardens. We provide books, cds and dvds for lazy days together with maps and local information for venturing out.
The Thalasso Spa at San Marco di Castellabate is only 25 mins drive and they offer a tantalising range of massages and beauty treatments, a 3 hour 'Sea Path' to try out all the different pools, steam rooms etc.
