'Collemare' literally means ' hill by the sea' and this is exactly what you find when you arrive in Scerne di Pineto.
Scerne di Pineto is located between the seaside resorts of Pineto and Roseto ( both five minutes away by car )
Pineto is a 2 hour car journey from the centre of Rome and is 3 1/2 hours from the Amalfi coast. Due to its beautiful natural coastline Pineto is a desirable location for mainland Italians on their Summer holidays and is not a commercialised resort in the slightest. If you want to discover the true Italian way of life then Collemare is the perfect place to stay to enable you to immerse yourself in the culture.
You can sample the delights of the local family run Agriturismo's or cook at home using the most wonderful fresh food from the surrounding area. This is a great place for people who enjoy their food and drink !
Type Pineto into Google and you will see some beautiful pictures of the area under Images for Pineto. It really is the true Italian experience.
We also have a local area guide that we have spent many years putting together which has proved invaluable for all past guests.
Please don't hesitate to call me with any further information you require as no question is too small.
the street is Viale Torinese in Scerne di Pineto if you wish to locate on Google Earth.
A great place with everything we could possibly want. The information and recommendations were very helpful. Great communication with the owner and available when we needed them, the local help was invaluable too. Would return like a shot. If anyone wants a beautiful place to stay and a superb area to visit and explore this is it.
The apartment was a good family size, decorated well & very comfortable. Both the kitchens were exceptionally fitted out. We felt more of a home than holiday apart. It is situated very close to Pineto, a lovely village with everything at hand. There are numerous restaurants to suit all tastes. With a Vineyard 100 metres away selling cheap wine , great eating out & lovely local beaches, we would definitely recommend.
This was the perfect location for a weeks holiday. Very quick and easy to get to from the airport. The property was clean, modern and homely and the private garden and pool was a must for our family. There are plenty of leaflets and booklets to show you the local restaurants and things to do and we loved the outdoor built-in bbq which we used pretty much daily for either lunch or dinner. The beaches are quite busy which is not our thing, so we ventured down the coast and found remote natural beaches with nearby facilities and beautiful pine trees for shade. It isn't all just pizza and pasta - there are some lovely fish restaurants in the town too. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family.
A wonderful place that really feels like a home. Great amenities and well furnished with the pool a great plus. We had a guest with a handicap and the place met all her needs. We loved the location, a good view and really quiet and still close to everything. Good access to shops, beach, highway and anything you can think of is within minutes. Would and will come back again.
We can't recommend Collemare enough. We were looking for a villa in Italy that would suit 2 x 50 somethings, 3 x 20 somethings and an 8 week old baby! Collemare was just what we needed. The villa is so well equiped, it had everything we needed. We found the villa so relaxing we had to drag ourselves out to sightsee!! Jo provided us with a useful list of things to do and places to eat in the area. We chose to fly into Rome so enjoyed the journey through the mountains and beautiful countryside to Pineto. On the last day we visited the Trevi fountain and Collesseum before going to the airport, unfortunately not enough time to visit the Vatican, we'll just have to have a return visit, and we know which villa we will be booking!!
Just got back from a weeks stay at Collemare and we couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay. The villa itself is lovely, clean, more than spacious enough for 3 adults and 2 teenagers to stay, very comfortably and with every amenity you could ask for. The pool is great too and we loved the shady patio area outside the bedrooms to sit and enjoy a glass of the local wine. Talking of the local wine, the vineyard just 5 minutes away is well worth a visit to stock up, they dispense the wine directly from the tank into your demijohn, which the villa owners kindly have available, it's incredibly cheap and very easy to drink, oh and they also sell fresh fruit and veg. We frequented the two local towns, Pineto and Roseto, throughout our stay, especially enoying the homemade ice creams in Pineto (not called this but the place with the Cafe Lunik sign outside was our fav). The beaches in both are clean, sandy and large and the Lidos very friendly, although not everyone speaks English I think that adds to the charm of the area as although it is a tourist destination it's more of an Italian one rather than British, although we did see one or two on our travels.
The age old question though, would you go again? The answer is a resounding yes!
This beautiful garden apartment is situated over two levels and has stunning views of both the Sea and the Gran Sasso mountain range.

The external door downstairs leads to a beautiful private ' Terraza' which is wonderful for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Saving the best till last there is the 8m x 4m kidney shaped pool with Roman Steps set in a large garden area complete with traditional bar b que area.
