One-Off Feature

Set within 5 acres of land on the border of the Cilento National Park in Italy, this secluded little cottage combines rural tranquillity with mesmerising sea views and spectacular sunsets. Nerola Cottage is a little piece of heaven - a hilltop retreat in a rural location with clean air, peace and quiet, and wonderful landscapes to enjoy.  Holistic treatments available on site.

General Info

If you’re looking for an Italian bolthole in which to relax, unwind, potter, walk, sunbathe and explore then you’ve come to the right place. The cottage has been lovingly restored to provide cosy homely accommodation, the private gardens look towards the beautiful Amalfi Coast, the surrounding area is natural and unspoiled and within 20 minutes of the cottage you will find medieval villages, coastal towns, beaches and historic sites. True peace and quiet is hard to come by but you’ll find it in abundance at this wonderful retreat.

The Area Surrounding The Property / Accommodation

Nerola Cottage feels gloriously remote but it is actually just a short drive to the shops, cafes and restaurants of Laureana Cilento and San Martino. The surrounding countryside is perfect for walks and wildlife spotting and there are plenty of pretty hilltop villages to explore, and just 15-20 minutes away are the sandy beach at Baia di Trentova and the coastal town of Santa Maria di Castellabate. There are plenty of water sports available along this stretch of coastline and those in search of gentler pursuits can sample mozzarella at one of the nearby buffalo farms or visit the Greek temples at Paestum and the monastery at Padula.
