This imposing stone-built farmhouse dating back to the nineteenth century has been sympathetically restored and brought up-to-date with all modern comforts, including air conditioning, set in an attractive Mediterranean oasis in the countryside of Paestum, with spectacular views stretching across the Cilento and Amalfi coast, all the way to the island of Capri.
The accommodation is spread over three floors offering a choice of five individually appointed ensuite bedrooms and three independent one-bedroomed suites with kitchenette and access to a private terrace. Depending on the composition of the group, this property would also be perfect for large family gatherings of up to 23 people. The 360° degree sweeping views across vineyards, rocky mountains and the sea together with a swimming pool surrounded by a scented Mediterranean garden complete the idyllic setting of Villa Paestum – a place in which to unwind and forget the hectic pace of everyday life.
This villa boasts the unique charm of a relaxing country retreat with sea views combined with the appeal of having Paestum — one of Italy’s most acclaimed archaeological sites — almost on your doorstep. The proximity of Cilento’s long sandy beaches and easy accessibility to Amalfi, Positano, Ravello and Capri (all within an hour drive) make this an ideal base for anybody wishing to explore this beautiful area. Having the Tyrrhenian Sea so close at hand means you can enjoy the typical Southern-Italian relaxed atmosphere; swim in blue-flag waters, sail along the splendid Cilento coastline, discovering bays, hidden rocky coves and many quaint fishing villages with excellent seafood restaurants. Key destinations along the Amalfi coasts, including Capri, are connected via hydrofoil service (called'metro del mare') — a highly recommended alternative to driving.
