Villa Renata is a welcoming apartment that covers the entire top floor of a villa located on a hillside, facing the sea. It sleeps five people. From Villa Renata you will have a splendid view of the vegetation and of the sea. Villa Renata is 80 square meters (860 square feet). It features a wide private terrace with a view of the sea and a private garden.

You will be roughly 1 km (0.6 miles) from the center of Santa Maria di Castellabate, roughly 500 meters (550 yards) from the shops and the stop for the local bus. You will find the closest restaurant at 400 meters (440 yards) and the closest beach at roughly 1 km (0.6 miles). You will reach Villa Renata from the garden without having to climb any steps.

To stay at Villa Renata you will need a car. You will be able to park it inside the entrance gate.

Villa Renata is built on the slope of a hill covered by pine trees. It is the top level of an ancient country house, and it is surrounded by a plot of land where citrus trees and olive trees are grown. The sloping terrain has made it possible to build a private entrance to the villa, with an entrance gate that is totally independent of the rest of the building. As a matter of fact, the rest of the building, which has been built by the owners for their own vacations, can't bee seen from Villa Renata as it is located under the large terrace. Standing on the terrace or in the garden of Villa Renata you will not be able to see other houses around you, except for those far away, scattered here and there in the fields and in the olive groves, or clustered close to the sea.

From the main gate you will enter a small fenced rustic garden, where there is the parking space.

In the garden you will find oleanders with pink flowers, a large fig and a few century-old olive trees. In the shade of the trees there is a table with chairs, as well as a long brickwork bench on which you will be able to seat and enjoy the wide view of the vegetation and of the sea.

The interior of the house is airy and luminous. All the rooms have a view of the sea. From the terrace you will enjoy a 360-degree view, that goes from the hill covered by the typical loca pine trees, behind the house, to the valley below and all the way to the sea.

The view of the sea embraces the whole small bay of Santa Maria di Castellabate, from the cliff of Punta Licosa, with its lighthouse, to the south, to the cape of Punta Tresino, to the north. This tract of the Mediterranean sea, famous for the beauty of its bottom and rich in archaeological findings of the Greek and Roman ages, is a protected sea park and it is a real paradise for divers.

On clear days your sight can reach the entire Gulf of Salerno, with the Amalfi Coast and the island of Capri on the background. From this place you will also enjoy spectacular sunsets over the sea and the view, at night, of the lights of the Gulf.

Staying at Villa Renata you will enjoy the sun, the sea, the green of the pine trees, the quiet of a small, charming, tourist center, the good local cuisine based on the genuine produce of the Cilento National Park, such as mozzarella cheese, olive oil and wine.

Villa Renata is an excellent starting point to visit the Cilento National Park and the archaeological excavations of Paestum and Velia, the excavation of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the Amalfi Coast and Capri.

The Campania region

Campania region is the beginning of the 'mezzogiorno'. Translating as the 'midday' the phrase evokes the sun-baked south. And Campania - with its ancient Greek and Roman towns, rumbling volcanoes and glittering blue coastline, at times evokes Classical Greece as much as modern Italy. You could be a million miles from bureaucratic and businesslike Milan.

Throughout much of its history Campania has been at the centre of Western Civilisation's most significant entities. The area was colonised by Ancient Greeks and was within Magna Græcia, until the Roman Republic began to dominate. During the Roman era the area was highly respected as a place of culture by the emperors, where it balanced Greco-Roman culture. The area had many duchies and principalities during the Middle Ages, in the hands of the Byzantine Empire and some Lombards.

It was under the Normans that the smaller independent states were brought together as part of a sizeable European kingdom, known as the Kingdom of Sicily, before the mainland broke away to form the Kingdom of Naples. It was during this period that especially elements of Spanish, French and Aragonese culture touched Campania. Later the area became the central part of the Two Sicilies under the Bourbons, until the Italian unification of 1860 when it became part of the new state Italy.

The capital city of Campania is Naples. Campania is rich in culture, especially in regards to gastronomy, music, architecture, archaeological and ancient sites such as Pompeii, Herculaneum and Paestum. The name of Campania itself is derived from Latin, as the Romans knew the region as Campania felix, which translates into English as "fortunate countryside". The rich natural sights of Campania make it highly important in the tourism industry, especially along the Amalfi Coast, Cilento Coast, Mount Vesuvius and the island of Capri.

Santa Maria di Castellabate

Staying at Villa Renata you will enjoy the sun, the sea, the green of the pine trees, the quiet of a small, charming, tourist centre, the good local cuisine based on the genuine produce of the Cilento National Park, such as mozzarella cheese, olive oil and wine.

Villa Renata is an excellent starting point to visit the Cilento National Park and the archaeological excavations of Paestum and Velia, the excavation of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the Amalfi Coast and Capri.

The bus stop is at approximately 500 meters (550 yards). Mind that the road to reach the house from the bus stop is uphill!

The closest train station is Agropoli, at 14 km (9 miles).

In the area you will find the tourist ports of San Marco (at 4 km, 2.5 miles) and of Agropoli, and it is possible, during the summer, to board ferries to the Amalfi Coast, to Capri and to other location along the Cilento Coast, as well as to take boat trips, fishing trips or diving trips.

In the summer time, in the villages along the coast it is possible to attend a large number of "sagre" (local outdoor festivals with homemade dishes and live music), and it is possible to book guided hikes along naturalist, historical-cultural or gastronomic trails with the Cilento National Park guides.

Santa Maria di Castellabate was commonly known as Isca delle Chitarre, which represents the current historical centre, extending between two main squares: Piazza Materazzo, nearby the homonym villa and Piazza Lucia. The most suggestive buildings in town are located in the historical portico's area in front of the pier, called "Porte le Gatte" (transmutation of the name "porticati").

Santa Maria di Castellabate delights any visitor. Its history is shrouded in legend: according to general belief, this was the land of Leucosia, the siren able to cast a spell over anyone.

The glorious past of one of the most suggestive and unforgettable villages of Cilento, has seen parading populations as Normans, Byzantines, Saracens, French, Spanish, as well as local squires and feudatories that contended for it throughout the centuries, not only for the great fortress but even for the beauty of its natural position.

This fishing village lost in a old-time atmosphere, offers a very interesting museum, called "Museo del Mare" (Museum of the Sea), in Villa Matarazzo, where you will see important finds, like the amphora belonging to an ancient ship dated back at the I century BC, and found in 1990.

Castellabate has a spectacular natural setting that offers to lovers of art, nature scholars, sport lovers and simply curious tourists, thousands of opportunities for excursions, culture and entertainment over and above the beauty of sea and beaches.

To complete the picture, the courtesy of the people as well as the flavours and scents of local cuisine are just unique!
