"We had a lovely stay in this purpose built holiday apartment located on a small farm in Ascea Marina. The owner Sylvestro, who lived in the flat above, went out of his way to make us welcome throughout our stay in a warm, unobtrusive way. In the apartment we were delighted to find some wine, beer, a freshly backed cake, lemons & oranges from the farm, tea and coffee along with basic items like toilet paper, soap and washing up liquid. Within minutes of our arrival a large bowl of pasta had been rustled up by his sister and served with more local wine. Later in the week we were treated to a hands on limoncello-making demonstration using home grown lemons fresh from the trees, which we were able to take home at the end of the stay. The highlight was pizza cooked in the outside wood-fired oven.
The apartment was clean and in good condition, with 2 bedrooms, bathroom with shower, well equipped kitchen and dining table and chairs. There was a TV with mainly italian channels available. There was a shady outside terrace with table, chairs, recliners and sun loungers. The apartment could be improved by a comfortable inside sitting area (e.g. small couch) for use in cooler evenings. The large enclosed garden was available for our use and ideal for children with swings, seesaw, ball games etc. The main high street and clean sandy beach were both 5 minutes walk away. Shops including supermarkets, many restaurants and other amenities all within walking distance - our favourite was the Restaurant Porta Rosa, 10 mins walk away. Local food was of good quality and reasonably priced with many small shops selling fresh local produce. Buffala mozzarella (and gelati!) were fantastic. Train station close by but we had a hired car. The Cilento National Park is beautiful with many blue flag beaches and coastal towns, each worth a visit. Pompeii, Vesuvius, Napoli, Sorrento and the Amalfi coast are all possible day trips too.
