Casa Gianluigi A is a 100-square-meter (about 1,076 square feet) apartment which sleeps four people. It features a terrace with a view of the valley and the sea. You will be on a hill overlooking the sea, actually 7 km (about 4.3 miles) away from the sea and the splendid sandy beach of Acciaroli.

There are two double bedrooms, a large living-room with a fireplace, a bathroom with shower, and a kitchen. 

The place

You will be in the historical center of medieval origins of San Mauro Cilento, gracious little town of the Parco Nazionale del Cilento (National Park of Cilento), of a thousand inhabitants, and located 500 meters (about 1,640 feet) above the sea. 

The small town of San Mauro Cilento is located on the slopes of Monte (Hill) Stella and it faces the sea. The town is surrounded by lands cultivated with olive groves and splendid oak chestnut woods. Weather is pleasant all year round. Even during hot summers, the temperatures are never too excessive, for they're milded by the breeze coming from the sea and the fresh air coming from the woods.

Here you will be able to get to know the inhabitants of the place and their simple way of living. You won't see crowds of tourists but the warm hospitality of a typically Italian southern small town. 

From San Mauro Cilento the sea and the golden sand beaches of Acciaroli are easily reached, and during summer you can arrive there with convenient bus trips. 

A few feet away from the house you will have shops, bars, restaurants, and a large public parking area. 

Its history

Casa Gianluigi is an apartment inside an old stone building which is part of the historical center of San Mauro Cilento. It was built during the medieval times. 

The building has a history which is linked to the fall of the Eastern Roman Empire under the hands of the Turks in the middle of the fifteenth century. During that period important families related to the emperor, killed in battle, escaped from Constantinople (Istanbul nowadays ) and headed towards Cilento. It was here that the last heir of the throne of the Empire in the East, Rogerio Paleologo, lived in exile and where the dynasty of the last heirs of the Emperor Constantine was extinguished. 

The apartment 

Once through a large wooden gate you will enter a courtyard shaded by a large pergola and where there is an old well in the middle of it. 

To get to the apartment you will have to climb a staircase of about 30 steps. You will enter a large living-room illuminated by windows and balconies which overlook the tiny square below. In the living-room you will have a table with chairs, a couch and armchairs placed around a working fireplace, and a television. 

From the living-room you can reach the kitchen. The kitchen is furnished with a table and chairs and has a small balcony. The kitchen has a four-burner stove, an oven, and a fridge with freezer. 

Both double bedrooms are spacious and have windows with a view of the countryside. The bathroom has a shower. 

The apartment has been recently restored, and its furnishings are complete and comfortable, with beautiful family furniture. 

The terrace 

At Casa Gianluigi A you will have a pleasant terrace at your disposal. You reach it after climbing and outdoor staircase of about 20 steps. This staircase is right in front of the entrance door of the apartment. 

The terrace will enable you to face from above all the roofs covered with old tiles of the surrounding houses. Your eyes will also meet the valley below and stretch up to sea a bit further. 

The terrace is furnished with a large umbrella, a table, chairs, and deck chairs. You will enjoy spending time outdoors, and when the night falls, you will be able to catch the magnificent view of sunsets over the sea.

The beach

The nearest beach is the long golden sand beach of Acciaroli. The water is clean and transparent, and the shallow sandy bottom is perfect even for kids to go for a swim. 

If you want you can use the services of the beach establishments of the place, which offer you parking space, umbrellas, and sun loungers. At the beach you will also have bars and restaurants. The climate is mild, and you will be able to go for a swim from late spring to mid autumn.

Don't miss the chance of enjoying the sunset over the sea from the beach: every evening is a fascinating and different spectacle of nature!

Nearby tourist attractions

While staying in San Mauro Cilento you will be able to visit both by land and sea the beautiful coast of the Parco Nazionale del Cilento (National Park of Cilento), which stretches from Agropoli to Palinuro. 

In Acciaroli, only 7 km (about 4.3 miles) away, you will have the tourist port, where you can rent convenient and economical ferries and hydrofoils during summer to Palinuro, Santa Maria di Castellabate, Agropoli, Salerno, Amalfi, Positano, Capri, Sorrento, and Naples.

You can even rent boats for private tours or participate in fishing competitions, following the steps of Hemingway.

Let's not forget that Acciaroli was the fishermen's town which inspired Hemingway to write the famous “The Old Man and the Sea”!

Obviously visiting the famous Temples of Paestum, the museum of the place, and the archaeological ruins of Elea is almost an obligation. With a one-day tour you can also visit the archaeological ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum.

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.

Castellabate

Castellabate is one of the most beautiful old towns, not only of the Cilento National Park, but of all the southern Tyrrhenian coast. You will reach it along a steep, winding road, at around 280 meters above the sea level, where a beautiful panorama separates you from the sea.

This enchanting medieval village is embellished with streets and buildings extremely rich in history. Its gorgeous position already releases a unique charm: it is wrapped into the beautiful Mediterranean maquis that makes the Bay of Ogliastro Marina and the Isle of Licosa even more precious; immersed into long golden beaches alternated by rough rocks, that contend for the primacy to the magic sea, here venerated as a deity.

The town hat several marinas, often recognized as villages of their own as they have grown beyond the size of the "center": Santa Maria di Castellabate, San Marco di Castellabate, Ogliastro Marina and the smaller Lago, Annunziata and Alano. Castellabate, Santa Maria, San Marco and Ogliastro Marina enjoy a privileged geographical position, on the sea, closed in among Punta Tresino, Punta Licosa, and the gentle hills of ancient Cilento.

Rich of history, Castellabate ties its name to the founder of its castle, built in 1123 by the IV Abbot of Cava de Tirreni, San Costabile Gentilcore. The medieval town is splendidly conserved and generally well restored, in keeping to the original town plan, with small kitchen gardens, intercommunicating houses and narrow lanes. The plan was developed over the centuries around the Castle and the Basilica Romanica of Santa Maria de Giulia and its beautiful bells. The town boasts beautiful examples of religious and residential architecture, often of the seventh century, like the Iaquinto Palace or the Perrotti Palace, proudly tied to the hospitality reserved at Gioacchino Murat.
