The Campania region

If you think you have no idea of where Campania is, think again. This fascinating land, rich in gulfs, islands and legendary places, is home to the charming landscapes of the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento, the Cilento National Park, Capri and Ischia.

The Campania region is situated in the South of Italy and bounded by the Tyrrhenian Sea (that’s the name of that stretch of Mediterranean). The region is divided into five provinces, whose capitals are Salerno, Caserta, Avellino, Benevento and Naples (Napoli). Naples is also the capital city of the region itself. With roughly 6 million of residents, half of which lives around the city of Naples, Campania has more people than Finland, packed in an area which is 200 times smaller.

If you are fond of archeology, architecture, or simply want to see history come back to life, Campania is a must. The archeological heritage is huge: the temples left by the Greeks in Paestum, the buried towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the remains of Velia, the masterpieces kept in the museums, the churches… and, of course!, the Royal Palace of Caserta, built to be the most sumptuous palace of Europe, with its 1200 rooms.

If the majesty you prefer is the majesty of nature, Campania will not disappoint you. The sandy beaches and the crystal-clear waters of the Cilento National Park, the amazing scenery of the Amalfi Coast, the islands of the Gulf of Naples are just a sampler of what lies ahead of you. From the underground depths of the caves of Pertosa to the heights of Mount Vesuvius, there is something for everyone. By the way, being Mount Vesuvius an active volcano, we respectfully suggest you visit sooner rather than later.

An outline of Campania would not be complete without a mention of its culinary tradition. Many of the world-known Italian dishes have their roots in Campania: pizza, spaghetti, mozzarella, limoncello, cannelloni… Italians know Campania well for being one of the regions that offer the best food, and definitely the region where you can taste the best coffee. Espresso, cappuccino and now interesting variations on the theme such as hazelnut coffee make the day of the residents of Campania, and will make yours as well.

Amalfi Coast

On the western side of Cetara, at the outlet of St Nicola's gorge, amid scented olive and lemon trees, rises Erchie: a picturesque maritime village overlooked by the medieval Torre Erchie - a quadrangular imposing keep, built for want of Charles I of Anjou in 1278.

Denominated Ircle, Ercla, Hercla and Ejrchia in ancient times, Erchie's toponym derives from an old temple built in honour of Hercules. It is a small paradise, held into the arms of sweet hills sloping down to the sea!

The small golden beach set between the rocky spurs and the suggestive "spiaggetta degli innamorati" (the beach of lovers) - accessible through a natural grotto – make Erchie a great destination for people who love tranquillity and peace, in harness with nature...

The village rose originally around the Abbey of St Mary de Irchi (founded in 980), which gave the name to this charming place. The abbey achieved a great importance thanks to the right to collect the tithes in haul from Cetara, Superato and the nearby Casali. After a violent storm, the abbey was destroyed in 1440 and finally abandoned in 1451.

The local economy is currently focused on tourism as well as the cultivation of lemons and vineyards. Something really important is that the southern area of Erchie, including the beach, is not accessible by car or motorcycles: the total absence of smog and traffic make it a real oasis even for children, able to play in freedom.

"Absolutely Perfect!"

We have just returned from a week staying at Villino Rubacuori on the Amalfi Cost. I have to say it couldn't have been more perfect. The information and support from Summer in Italy, who we booked through was brilliant and the accomodation was absolutely beautiful with views over the sea and mountains beyond. We were looking for somewhere that was secluded but also close to everything and Villino Rubacuori
delivered this perfectly. The owner met us in the nearby town and took us to the property. He was exteremely helpful and explained everything to us. There is a information guide in the mill which tells you of some local restaurants and trips which was helpful. It also has details of the buses.
The property is right on the coast road with secure parking which is great if you hire a car (which we did). The property itself is a bit of a climb up the hill (about 50yds ish). This was a bit hard work when we first arrived because of the weight of our case but throughout the week it was great because you felt like you were staying rurally when in fact you are right near everything. Cetera is a short drive up the road, walkable but it was dark so we just took the car. We went to a very nice fish restaurant there one evening which was recommended by the owner.
All the places we wanted to visit such as Pompeii and Herculanium were an easy 45 minutes drive using the motorway and Amalfi and Positano were also close.
The owner tried to contact us after a few days to check we were ok but unfortunately my phone didn't work. Wehn we arrived back at the property that night he had left us some anchovies and more pellets for the fire which was really thoughful.
I would definately recommend this to people as it was beautiful and the accomodation was great.
Best bits - location, views, accomodation and helpful and friendly owner.
Worst bit - the walk up the hill to the mill - it was fine for us but if your were a bit unsteady on your feet it could be a problem. Although even this shouldn't really put you off. Just take regular rests on your walk up!
