Who We Are

Le Cannicelle - Villa Mediterranea

Le Cannicelle is a modern, three-storey villa built in a traditional style, set 124 feet above sea level with stunning views stretching for miles along the Cilento coast. The villa is comfortably furnished in a contemporary style and each level is self-contained making it ideal for larger groups.

Outside there is ample space for everyone to come together and enjoy the stunning sea views from one of the many terraces, lounge in the shade of a huge Mediterranean oak tree, soak up the sun around the pool, or enjoy a meal on the rustic ‘taverna’ dining terrace.

Ground floor

Positioned on the ground floor, its main entrance is from the garden. The living room is large, bright with great views of the sea from windows and balconies. There is a working fireplace, perfect for those who wish to stay also in the colder months!

First floor

In the morning, after a good sleep, guests on the first floor can choose how to start their day – either on the kitchen terrace looking out over the hillside, enjoying the view of the orgiastic chromatics of the Mediterranean flora (macchia mediterranea), or, still sleepy, taking a stroll on the big terrace and admiring the glittering seascape of the huge Policastro bay, from the coastline to the horizon.

Second floor

“Mirto” is positioned on the top floor. Its strategic balcony commands superb views of the enchanting Mediterranean panorama. From here gaze will sweep across the entire Policastro bay; while sipping the first coffee of the morning guests can abandon themeself to its seductive charms.

Who we area

Me and my sister Antonietta own this spectacular villa in Villammare. Following a huge passion for hospitality, some years ago at this family jewel we decided to open the doors to the international quality tourism. Since 2005 travellers from all over the world have chosen Villa Le Cannicelle as location for their family and friends holiday at the beach in Italy. Many of them are keep gathering to the villa along the years for their family reunions. Their children feel like home and, when summer arrives, they can’t wait to jump again into our beautiful sea view infinity swimming pool. We saw them growing up along the years and some of them can now even speak a bit of Italian. What a great joy for us! As a property owner what we care most is hospitality and our dedication to an excellent service in our role. If you are planning a charming family reunion in Italy please don’t hesitate to contact us. As our guests like to say: “The ‘dolce vita’ is here!”.

Three reasons why you'll love it here

The irresistible allure

of the Cilento Coast

 The timeless charm of the Cilento coast paired with an attentive yet discreet hospitality. Villa Le Cannicelle set in the lush coastal countryside is the perfect  hideaway for those who want to be surrounded by the beauty of the Italian coastline but also well-placed for striking out to explore the most famous sights along the coast. The villa sits halfway between Palinuro and Maratea, ideal for day trips and boat excursions but at the same time far from the chaos and crowds. Villa Le Cannicelle boasts elegant interiors that offer all the luxury amenities, together with breathtaking views of the Italian coast, and spacious outdoor areas that include a super panoramic private infinity pool.

Italian beach

style and elegance

A poolside terrace hanging over the hill’s edge constantly calls at this classic villa in Villammare, near Maratea and Palinuro. A wooden gazebo and parasols let you dine alfresco in sun or shade, and stone stairs lead from the villa to the grand summer kitchen and the garden. Dip in the swimming pool and rinse off alfresco, journal at a writer’s desk overlooking the sea, and drive just 2 minutes down to Villammare beach.

Villa Le Cannicelle pairs the charm of traditional coastal architecture – including arched windows, square stone columns, and bright Mediterranean colors – with the comforts of a luxury accommodation.

All the warmth

of the Cilento Coast hospitality

One of the features guests at Villa Le Cannicelle love most are the stunning common spaces, including panoramic terraces furnished with dining areas, lounging areas, and shaded areas. Here, you can relax over a cocktail or with a good book and enjoy the unparalleled views over the Cilento Coast as the sun sets. There is also a private swimming pool reserved for guests, and a fully equipped summer kitchen with built-in barbecue and authentic wood fired pizza oven. The villa is a truly peaceful oasis surrounded by the verdant coastal hills and kissed by the warm Mediterranean sun.The view is simply breathtaking – with the entire Gulf of Policastro opening to your eyes.
