Santavenere, Maratea, Italy

A latest find from Carlos, a very good Spanish partner I have for Italy (& Spain)
Fascinated by the undiscovered Maratea, the only coastal part of the Basilicata region facing the Tyrrhenian Sea, located between Campania (Amalfi Coast) and Puglia, we arrive at Santavenere, the perfect destination for those who love the seaside, lush nature, Italian traditions and simple but elegant lifestyle. Piero and Francesca, the owners, charm you instantly since you step into their beautiful ‘home’ with 34 guest rooms and suites, surrounded by 24 acres of private beach front park where you will enjoy 3 spectacular dining locations for lunch and dinner, Beach Club, seawater pool, tennis court and Spa inspired in oriental traditions. The Porto (harbour) and the town up on the hill with 44 churches add that amazing local flavour we are always looking for.

A must
Night fishing with the local boat and enjoy the grilled fish you caught at the Beach Club

Favorite accommodation
The ground floor Junior Suites in the annex to the house, the patio opens to the endless garden, perfect for the kids

Best kept secret
It is the playground for many of the Italian high society

Italian timeless elegance surrounded by infinite nature

If you love the beach, April to October

In love with
The purity of the area, the mountains and the crystalline waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea

Favorite local activity
A stroll to the Maratea harbour and dinner at one of their amazing seafood restaurants

Combines with
Palazzo Avino in Ravello and Borgo Egnazia in Puglia

Naples Airport (NAP) – 2h 30 mins by car / 60 mins by helicopter (landing pad on property)

Interesting and attractive, isn’t it?
