Vista Mare 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.
Vista Mare has large, enclosed, terraced grounds. 12m x 6m pool (depth 1.40m -2.40m). Covered terrace on ground floor level with comfortable seating. Lower terrace with vine covered pergola, large medierranean oak tree providing extra shade and Taverna style covered outdoor dining terrace seating 10 with summer kitchen (sink and fridge), built-in charcoal barbecue. 2 further outdoor dining areas on first floor level. Parking for 6 cars. NB: The coast road is nearby - there may be some road noise at peak times. A local train line (infrequent service) can also be heard from the grounds.
This stretch of the Tyrrhenian coast is rugged and unspoilt – a glimpse of the Amalfi of the past, before it was ‘discovered’.
The villa has a large living/dining room (TV, DVD, CD), open fireplace, dining table for 6, library/study area, French doors to covered terrace with comfortable seating, sea view. There is also a well equipped kitchen, French doors to terrace and steps down to ‘taverna’ style covered outdoor dining area with summer kitchen. Large roof terrace with outdoor dining table and sunbathing area, sea view.

The beach at Villammare is only 600 metres away and in the summer has lively beach cafes and facilities. The village centre offers a small selection of bars and restaurants. Sapri is a larger town with good train links to Salerno and Naples. Inland, the charming hilltop village of Vibonati is lit in ever-changing colours during the balmy summer evenings. Villammare sits at the foot of the Cilento National Park – the second largest in Italy stretching across a huge mountain range and an important ecological area with abundant wildlife. There are many historical sites to visit from the monastery at Padula to the temples of Paestum and the abandoned village of San Severino di Centola. Natural sites include the Hair of Venus waterfalls and Grotte di Castelcivita caves among many others.
Take a boat trip from the delightful port at Scario to Porto Infreschi, passing caves and hidden coves en route and order a fresh seafood lunch from the boat-cum-restaurant which is moored in this tiny natural bay. Or drive south to see the impressive statue of Jesus high on a clifftop above Maratea. You can reach the Amalfi coast and the island of Capri by hydrofoil from Sapri harbour within 3 hours during the summer months – the perfect way to enjoy the Amalfi coast without staying in the tourist hustle and bustle!
