The Costa di Maratea is rightly famed for it's wild beauty and the Villa Ligeia arguably has the best view across the Gulf of Policastro. Our two houses and 9 acres of gardens and managed woodland offer rare privacy twinned with easy access to the fun and life of Italian dolce vita in Maratea and Sapri. Most bedrooms have their own terrace, and there are four different dining areas in and around the houses and a BBQ. Lounge around or read in either living room, on one of the terraces, or in the hammocks in the woods. Sunbathe on the terraces, roofs or around the swimming pool. Enjoy a drink while watching the spectacular sunset from the main terrace or the roof of either house, which provide further outside 'rooms', wonderful by day or night. Private parking for up to five cars. The two houses, built in the 1960s/70s, are modernist masterpieces by the Italian architect Alberto Ponis.

The Basilicata region

Basilicata is the unknown treasure of southern Italy. In this one spot it reaches down to the sea on the wild and beautiful Costa di Maratea. The rugged shoreline is dotted with C15th watchtowers against the Saracen pirates and the ruins of hill top villages, abandoned once the Saracen threat was gone - challenging visits for the fit and athletic.

The location of villa means those interested in archaeology and art can make day-trips to many historic sights: north to Pompeii and Herculaneum under the Vesuvius volcano, south to the Riace bronzes in Reggio Calabaria. Fun, half-day trips include to Paestum, with its ancient Greek temples and buffalo mozzarella factory, to the Cistercian monastery at Padula and to Diamante. For walkers and lovers of nature vast national parks stretch into the mountainous interior to both the north and south.


Along our bit of coast there are rocky inlets and beaches, and picturesque fishing ports and hill towns. The many restaurants in the area offer excellent pasta, pizza, sea food and regional specialities. In the town squares you can enjoy watching the passers by while drinking coffee or eating ice cream - the famous Italian dolce vita. Our local town, Maratea, has lovely shops, markets and cafes if you need a break from gazing at our view and browsing through the library, floating in the pool or staring at the blue, blue sky.

In Maratea port you can hire a boat to go diving or to explore the coast from the sea. The Mediterranean snorkaling is a pleasure as the water is increadably clear.
