Description from owner

Description

Situated in the middle of the Parco del Cilento and stuck between lush green slopes and the sea whose penetrating fragrance fills up the air, 'The Estate il Pilaccio nel Cilento' is the ideal place to enjoy the colours, the flavours and the odours of nature.

The House was built in 1875 near the old Convent of Santa Maria dei Martiri. In 1400 a small village started to grow around the convent and became famous for a market where local products were sold every Saturday. Being Saturday the market –day, the village was named 'Forum Sabati' – Mercato del Sabato (Saturday Market) - later simply renamed 'Mercato'

Our family villa looks out over the sloping coast bordering the crystalline waters of Punta Licosa Marine Reserve and is surrounded by a beautiful garden with secular trees and colourful varieties of flowers together with a splendid swimming-pool viewing the Isle of Capri and the Amalfi Coast. An extension of 110 hectares

Our family villa looks out over the sloping coast bordering the crystalline waters of Punta Licosa Marine Reserve and is surrounded by a beautiful garden with secular trees and colourful varieties of flowers together with a splendid swimming-pool viewing the Isle of Capri and the Amalfi Coast. An extension of 110 hectares of woods and a large green area densely planted with olive groves which give a delicious extra-virgin olive-oil produced according to old traditional procedures are to complete the magnificent scenery.

Faithful to the principle of respect for the environment and the need for tranquillity, the Estate il Pilaccio' is ready to welcome you into a peaceful and familiar atmosphere for days to spend in complete relax in touch with nature. In its warming hospitality, moreover, nature and culture can find matching interests: either sites of archaeological interest or spots renowned for their lovely natural beauties can be found in a short reach. This makes our resort house the ideal place not only to spend a quiet holiday, but also to get a chance to satisfy your archaeological, historical and artistic interests in excursions to enchanting places such as Paestum, Padula, Velia, Pompei, Capri, Palinuro and the Amalfi Coast.

'The Estate il Pilaccio nel Cilento' is able to combine the pleasures of tranquillity, relax, culture to the pleasure of healthy eating. Genuine local products grown in our orchard will give you an occasion to taste deliciously flavoured dishes belonging to Cilento antique tradition. The local cuisine, in fact, is rich in typical products manufactured following old traditional recipes.

Further details outdoors

The place is also rich in events and attractions: from the festivals and the fairs which will introduce you into old genuine tastes and traditions, to fun activities such as boat trips, trekking, horse riding or mountain-biking along the paths edging the suggestive woods, the sea and the charming hills covered with Mediterranean vegetation.

Location description from owner

The Campania region

Cilento is a land of myths, poets and singers where a heterogeneous mixture of archaeological remains from ancient civilizations and an amazing natural environment have found their common alcove. Recognized by UNESCO (United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization) a world heritage to preserve, it is rich in as many natural beauties mingled to classical antiquities as few other places in the world.

The promontory of Cilento, situated between the gulf of Salerno to the North and the gulf of Policastro to the South, offers a luxuriant natural scenery of rivers, mountains, extensive valleys and gentle hills sloping down into the Tyrrhenian Sea. Here old prehistoric settlements were substituted in time by Greek settlers who founded two among the richest and most important colonies in Western Mediterranean: Poseidonia ( renamed Paestum by the Romans) and Elea (renamed Velia ). Cilento is also the land which inspired famous Greek myths: the legend of the Sirens island, sung by Homer in his Odyssey, which tells of Ulysses bound to the mast of his ship to avoid being tempted by the enchanting, deceitful singing voices of the Sirens populating the isle of Leucosia (a small island off Punta Licosa); the story of Aeneas’s helmsman Palinuro, killed by the hostile inhabitants of that promontory when a shipwreck caused him to be driven onto the coast, later named Capo Palinuro after him; the myth of Jason and the Argonauts who fled from Colchis to reach the Hellenic Sanctuary of Heraion at the mouth of the river Sele in a place which is renowned still today as one of the most fascinating of Cilento coast.

The place is also historically interesting for the traces left by classical cultures through times. Greek settlements colonised the coastal centres of Poseidonia whose archaeological remains witness the architectural perfection reached by those ancient populations and Elea, an old commercial town, also popular for one of the most flourishing philosophical schools of Western Mediterranean, the Eleatic School, from which the Medical School of Salerno drew its origin and which included outstanding names such as Xenophanes, its founder, Zeno and Parmenides. Elea was also famous as a centre for minting coins together with Paestum. When the Romans colonised the Cilento area transforming it into a Roman province they named Velia and Paestum. The place, when subjected to Rome, was destined to cattle-breeding and land cultivation to supply Roman tables according to the wishes of Caesar Octavianus Augustus.

Perdifumo

The landscape is rich and varied and the sights to visit are of remarkable interest: Paestum and Velia, the naturalistic Oases of Punta Licosa, Persano and Castelcivita Grottoes; the Carthusian monastery of Padula, the Medieval towns of Castellabate and Agropoli are undoubtedly worth a visit.
