Make a holiday apartment in Maratea your home away from home

Maratea is a picturesque village in the hills above the sea, situated in Italy's southern Tyrrhenian coast. Crystal-clear waters, fine sandy beaches, mountains, a marina and a hill topped by a giant statue of Christ are among the area’s most notable features.  Nearby is the Parco del Pollino national park.  The pace of life along the narrow lanes and by the squares inside the village is unhurried, and the historic heart of the old town was founded in the 13th century.

HomeAway has a variety of Maratea holiday apartments in and around the village and along the Maratea coast. Some boast beautiful hillside views of the sea; others are within walking distance from the water. These holiday rentals can accommodate both small and large groups of people, and feature terraces, off-street parking, fridges, ovens and coffee makers. For those who want to stretch out in larger properties there is also a collection of Maratea holiday villas with covered terraces and gardens.  While in the area check out the historic town of Potenza, the capital of the region  where HomeAway also has a range of affordable holiday properties.

Things to do

-Beaches: The Maratea coast has a wealth of great beaches to choose from.  Sunbathing and splashing in the surf are among the most popular activities of visitors who rent Maratea holiday apartments, and it's little wonder: there are both sandy and shingle beaches within the vicinity.  An unusual feature of the Costa di Maratea is that black lava beaches can also be found.

-Outdoor activities: Within 30 kilometres of Maratea is the Parco del Pollino, the largest natural park in Italy, covering nearly 2,000 square kilometres.  It is a popular location for hiking and mountain biking.  During the summer, boat tours of the coast are organized from Porto Maratea, taking visitors inside some of the area’s limestone grottos.

-Churches: Maratea claims to be the town of 44 churches and there are many here to admire with their old frescoes and religious artworks.  Among the most significant are the Basilica of St. Blaise, the main church, built between the 6th and 7th centuries. The saint’s relics are kept inside the church.  The ancient Church of Saint Vitus dates back to the 9th century.

-Historic monuments:Situated on top of Monte San Biagio in front of the basilica is the 22-metre statue of Christ the Redeemer.  It is made from Carrara marble and was crafted by a sculptor from Florence in the 1960s.  Visitors can reach the hilltop on foot or by car.

Weather in Maratea

Maratea benefits from a good climate for most of the year with summer highs of 30°C in July and August.  Spring is warm with temperatures above 20°C, though being high up, the weather can be noticeably cooler at night.  December and January receive the most rainfall.

Travel to Maratea

The nearest airports to Maratea holiday villas are Salerno-Pontecagnano (139 kilometres), Napoli-Capodichino (211 kilometres) and Lamezia Terme (217 kilometres).  Below the hilltop village is a railway station that’s on the line that heads south from Naples towards Reggio di Calabria.  A local bus connects the station with the town.  Rental cars are a common form of transport for visitors to Maratea.

Comfortable. Thoughtfully provided with tea, coffee, sugar and quite a few more things. Everything thought of for cooking and eating, even egg cups which is unusual in Italy. Very peaceful. Wonderfully kind owners. We would have liked to stay there a lot longer.

The views are wonderful and facilities and grounds perfect for us. Gabriele was very helpful and friendly. The house is set away from the village and seafront but it is only a short drive away and the ability to wake up to stunning scenery was worth it. The dogs became a favourite feature and are well behaved.The beach and sea is not far away and is very clean. Highly recommend this place to anyone wanting a relaxing quiet location but not too remote.
