Cantarella Holiday Home

Cantarella Holiday Home

Set atop one of the highest points in the hills above the small town of Pollica, Casa Cantarella enjoys commanding views of the Mediterranean looking both up and down the Cilento coast to Capo Palinuro, in the Province of Salerno. On a clear day, both Calabria and the Aeolian Island of Stromboli are visible.
20 minutes and 4 kilometres down the mountain, you arrive at the seashore in Acciaroli which has been designated a Blue Beach and has been so for many years. One can travel south towards Palinuro or north towards Castellabate and Punta Licosa. There are many beach clubs along the coastline that provide their customers with parking, chairs and umbrellas, which can be rented on a weekly basis.

Our rustic house, which has recently been restructured and refinished, is nestled in a terraced orchard and sits amidst fig, orange, lemon and olive trees. The views from the terrace include not only the sea but also the typical curved tile roofs of the houses built into the mountain leading down to the town center. You can see the turret of Castello Capano which dates back to the 12th century and dominates the center of town.
Casa Cantarella has 9 rooms: 4 double bedrooms along with 2 modern bathrooms with shower stalls, a dining room with a table to seat 14, a well equipped kitchen, a large sitting room with doors opening on to the terrace, a laundry room and a large central reception room.

The house is on 2 levels. On the top floor which is accessed from the orchard, one can find two double bedrooms, one of which has an ensuite, the laundry room, the dining room and the kitchen. The stairs descend to the lower level which has two additional bedrooms, a large bathroom with 2 sinks and wide rainfall shower, a living room with doors to a long terrace with barbecue and another reception room, just inside the courtyard entrance to the house. These bedrooms and living room are fitted with climate control units.
Each of the bedrooms is equipped with mosquito nets above the beds and screens for the long French doors. The rooms are configured with double beds, however, 3 can be separated into single beds. There is also a spare mattress which can be used in any of the four bedrooms so that 9 people can be accommodated. The master bedroom has a large super king bed with a Juliet balcony overlooking the Mediterranean.
There is a water tank and a pump and one can be assured of a constant water supply even when and if the usual summer water shortages occur.
Additionally, there is a 32 TV equipped with Google chrome cast which enables the downloading of programmes from the internet and there is high speed broadband with a good signal throughout the property.
