LAST MINUTE SPECIAL OFFER : 10% discount off advertised price for AUGUST bookings..Villa Alberto is a detached stone villa set on two floors, arranged as 4 independent, self contained two bedroom apartments, with private parking located in a private road with wonderful views overlooking the sea, the bay of Santa Maria, surrounding countryside, the island of Capri and distant views of the famous Amalfi coastline.
The villa nestles in its own grounds and is surrounded by plants, a palm tree, orange, lemon, almond, cherry, walnut, apricot, plum trees and a small vegetable garden. Each apartment is simply but tastefully furnished, comprising two good size bedrooms, a bathroom with walk in shower, each with a combined sitting/kitchen/dining area with a wrought iron French style day bed to accommodate a 5th person. (Apartment 1 & 4 can accommodate 6 people)
All rooms are light and airy, having either double doors or large double shutter windows opening out on to independent spacious 180 degree terraces or patios. Facilities include fitted kitchen, fridge, oven and hob, iron, ironing board, TV and outside furniture for dining and relaxing.
As well as holidays for the independent traveller, we also feel the villa offers a wonderful setting for family and friend get togethers.
Seasonal fruit and vegetables grown in the private garden are available for you to pick.
The adjoining coastal village of Santa Maria takes only 5 -10 minutes by car (2.5 km) and is accessible by foot in half an hour (for those who like walking) or within 10 minutes by local bus - the nearest bus stop is roughly 10 mins walk from the villa. Here you will find fine golden sandy beaches and shallow waters which have once again been awarded the blue flag for clear sea and clean beaches.
Villa Alberto is only a short distance (10 -15 minutes walk) from the historical centre of Castellabate - the largely undiscovered mediaeval hill top village which overlooks the beach resorts of Santa Maria and San Marco.
USING THE VILLA AS A BASE FOR VISITING OTHER AREAS
From Castellabate you could ; take a boat trip and see the blue grottos or the famous island of Capri (boats leave from San Marco which is only 10 mins drive from Castellabate, and go direct to Capri in season) , visit the natural beauty of Punta Licosa and the island, explore the Cilento National Park, see one of the local Buffalo Mozzarella Farms and taste the world famous cheese, see the magnificent lost city of Paestum, the Royal palace at Caserta, the Phoenician ruins at Velia, take scuba diving lessons in San Marco, see Herculaneum and Pompei, go kayaking in Felitto, visit the famous Amalfi coast (by car or boat directly from San Marco), the gulf of Salerno, Naples or Rome or just enjoy the beach or relax outside and take in the views from the villa. The Times Newspaper wrote :
The fabulous coast near Naples has house prices as dizzying as the views - so it pays to head south to Cilento.
Drive south for an hour or so, however, and it is a different story.
The Cilento, in southern Campania, mixes hilly countryside with
dense woodland, and a sometimes rugged coastline with white
sandy beaches and sparkling, clean water. Much of the area is a
designated national park, with Unesco World Heritage status.
From hill towns such as Castellabate, you can trace the
coastline to Salerno, 40 miles to the north, and back out along
the Amalfi peninsula and watch the sun set over Capri.

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud
It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:
- It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
- If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
- Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
