Vanessa Hawes is the owner of two fabulous One Off Places in Campania, Italy. Read her story about her discovery of Italy's Cilento region. If it doesn't make you want to jump on a plane right now, then nothing will!
Eleven years ago we hitched up the caravan, bundled in the german pointer and set off to warmer climes from Le Marche. We headed south to the beautiful region of the Cilento. Sitting in a little bar in Santa Maria di Castellabate watching the sea crash over the rocks one late September evening we decided it can't get better than this.
Take a week off in early summer and you can find yourself some exceptional deals - One Off Places has from 20% - 50% off a number of fabulous properties during May and June, from a luxury farmhouse in Andalucia with its own gym, to an exquisite conversion in Montenegro overlooking Kotor Bay.
One Off Places has two fantastic 30% off deals for a couple of its most stunning One Off Places, one in Montenegro and one in Italy. Villa Stari Mlin in Montenegro looks out over Kotor Bay, and San Martino in Umbria is on the banks of Lake Corbara. Both have luxurious interiors, large gardens and swimming pools, and are a perfect choice for a group holiday of family or friends.
We must have been asked the same question over a hundred times but we never tire of telling a story that we’re happy to recall: “So how did you find this place?” invariably the question is posed at our weekly pizza party, an evening at the start of the week to which we invite all of our guests, to join us making pizza at our traditional outdoor log burning oven.
This is the perfect Italian retreat, with south facing terraces, stunning panoramic views, and lush hillside surroundings. Come and live ‘la dolce vita’ in the heart of Tuscany.
