USING THE VILLA AS A BASE FOR VISITING OTHER AREAS
Villa Alberto can be used as a base for visiting other areas. You could take a boat trip and see the blue grottos or the famous island of Capri (boats leave from San Marco which is only 10 mins drive from Castellabate, and go direct to Capri in season), visit the natural beauty of Punta Licosa and the island, explore the Cilento National Park, see one of the local Buffalo Mozzarella Farms and taste the world famous cheese, see the magnificent lost city of Paestum, the Royal palace at Caserta, the Phoenician ruins at Velia, see Herculaneum and Pompei, go kayaking in Felitto, visit the famous Amalfi coast (by car or boat directly from San Marco), the gulf of Salerno, Naples or Rome or just enjoy the beaches or relax outside and take in the views from the villa.
The Times Newspaper wrote :
The famous Amalfi coast near Naples has house prices as dizzying as the views - so it pays to head south to Cilento.
Drive south for an hour or so, however, and it is a different story.
The Cilento, in southern Campania, mixes hilly countryside with
dense woodland, and a sometimes rugged coastline with white
sandy beaches and sparkling, clean water. Much of the area is a
designated national park, with Unesco World Heritage status.
From hill towns such as Castellabate, you can trace the
coastline to Salerno, 40 miles to the north, and back out along
the Amalfi peninsula – and watch the sun set over Capri.
In 2009 the village of Castellabate was chosen for the re-make of the classic film 'Benvenuti al Sud', which won the hearts of many Italian cinema fans on its release in late 2010.
Castellabate is listed as one of the most beautiful villages in Italy.
CASTELLABATE VILLAGE and the surrounding National Park.
Castellabate Village and the surrounding National Park: the charming, living, working village of Castellabate is a traditional Italian medieval hill top village, just over an hour further south from the famous Amalfi coast.
Castellabate is a maze of ancient streets, alleyways, and local restaurants serving traditional food. There are various mini markets, a chemist, doctors, cash point, WI-FI points in the village, butchers, bars, hairdressers, beautician, ice-cream shops, pizza places and a newly opened public swimming just outside the village which has been sponsored by a local Italian Olympic swimmer. Castellabate and has spectacular views over the bay of Santa Maria and San Marco, the surrounding countryside, the Island of Capri and distant views of the Amalfi Coastline. Castellabate and the Cilento National Park have been recognised by UNESCO as world heritage sites since 1998.
