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.

                                                                                                      The apartment is lovely and spacious; the kitchen is well equipped and the roof terrace offers sunshine in privacy, as well as stunning views of the surrounding mountains. The beds are reasonably comfortable, and the air-conditioning was a life-saver, as there were no mosquito nets on any of the windows so we had to keep the windows shut. (Even mid-October there were still plenty of mosquitos around!) Unfortunately the bikes that belong to the apartment were too small for us, and it was too far to walk even to the nearest supermarket and back, never mind the town centre. A taxi was between €15-20 each way, so we decided to hire a car, which improved our stay considerably. The nicest part of the beach, with beautiful rocks for snorkelling, and bars and lidos still open mid-October, was right at the other side of town (about 5km away.) The beautiful beaches of San Nicola Arcella were easily accessible by car, but would have been too far (and the area too hilly!) to attempt by bike. The most direct road to the quieter end of the beach was closed off for roadworks, but perhaps by summer 2018 that might be an easier way to get to a beach. As far as car hire goes, we recommend a chain called Movers, with a branch in Diamante (2 stops further South on the train). Half the price of the more familiar brands and an excellent little car. The apartment itself felt slightly neglected; both toilet seats were wobbly, the tap in the kitchen was loose, and the place had not been cleaned properly after the previous occupants - crisp crumbs left in bowls inside a cupboard, sugar crumbs on the kitchen top and sticky patches on the floor, and, inevitably, tiny ants crawling around. A thorough clean quickly remedied the ant infestation and made the kitchen a joy to use. Italy has an excellent waste collection & recycling system, but the property manager just told us to put all rubbish in small bags and dump them in the general waste bins by the supermarket, rather than explaining what was being collected which days; and no special recycling bags were provided. Only when packing up at the end of our stay did I happen to find a leaflet explaining the recycling (in Italian.) Apart from these few little niggles we had a very enjoyable stay here.

The location is idyllic with very impressive views and a fantastically well equipped garden. We very much enjoyed breakfast outside, staring at the stunning views. We also found a very lovely beach south of Praia a Mare and liked discovering the region. Massimilio is the kindest and most delicate host one could wish for, and nothing is too much trouble to make his guests have a memorable experience, including introducing them to the local products. His house is wonderfully comfortable and one feels totally at home.
