We thoroughly enjoyed staying here - the owner was friendly and courteous without being at all intrusive, and even donated to us one of his bottles of red wine! The views were stunning - the coast in one direction and the hills and olive trees in the other. The apartment is beautifully built with a large stone terrace and well-equipped with plenty of hot water. A fly screen over the bedroom window ensures you can leave the window open at night without fear of being assaulted by mosquitoes. You definitely need a car staying here: the only restaurant within walking distance is Il Capriccio and as we were here out of season, it was closed. However, we did find other places to eat and we enjoyed the other effect of being out of season - warm balmy weather and few people. Castellabate is incredible - a Medieval town clinging onto the top of a hill with narrow winding passageways filled with bougainvillea, giant rubber plants and huge terracotta pots, presided over by the basilica. Santa Maria di Castellabate and Agripoli are both within 20 minutes' drive, and well worth visiting. The beaches are stunning, especially Baia Arena. Paestum is definitely worth a visit - the ruins are breathtaking and the museum is full of artefacts and explanations in English as well as Italian. We'd highly recommend this as a place to stay - it was just beautiful.
We had a wonderful stay at Villa Trotta. The view is magnificent and all the indoor and outdoor spaces are perfect for a large group. We made most of the dinners in the kitchen and ate on the large terrace during the sun set. When we were out driving the car we always looked forward to coming back to the house again.
Summer In Italy is a very reliable company, I fully recommend them!
