Villammare was a fishing village until the early 20th century when wealthy Italians began building holiday homes to take advantage of the beautiful area. Today the town is a mix of old and new, humble and grand architecture, making it a fascinating place to visit.

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.
