Why Giuseppe Puglia chose Pisciotta

It all stems from our strong passion for travel and love for our origins, which have been expertly handed down from my father's family. The house, surrounded by centuries-old olive trees, presents itself to us no longer as the grandfather's house Peppe, with all its history imbued with sacrifices, traditions and links indissoluble with the territory, but as an opportunity to meet with the culture and the life of this small and uncontaminated village of Cilento. Thus begins the Villetta in the olive grove, between renovations respectful of its nature and that which surrounds it to offer its guests a real oasis of peace. An ideal place to reunite with the land where you can rediscover the changing seasons, the awakening of spring in a carnival of scents and colors, pick up the aromatic herbs of the well-kept garden waiting to dive into the succulent dishes, distinguish, in the silence of the hill, the sound of birds, in the outdoor shower framed by plants and the enchanting view of the sea, lie down in the evening on the terrace and admire the carpet of stars. Around a few kilometers separate it from the village and the marina of Pisciotta, to travel by car or, for the most passionate, on foot, in complete tranquility, meeting the cute wild animals of the national park and seeing through the fronds breathtaking views.

Il tempo si ferma ed ogni cosa scorre lenta... il relax perfetto di cui ognuno avrebbe bisogno!!!

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo trovato questa graziosissima casetta per puro caso ma dal primo istante è stato un colpo di fulmine. Graziosissima e ben curata sia all'esterno che all'interno in una posizione strategica che accontenta gli amanti del mare e della natura insieme. Gli uliveti tutti intorno, il solarium con doccia esterna, le erbe aromatiche di Carla... che dire non manca proprio nulla!!!! La casettina è ben attrezzata e dotata di ogni comfort, Pippo e Carla hanno pensato davvero a tutto!!! Non posso non spendere qualche parolina per questi due fantastici "padroni" di casa. Il mio primo contatto è stato con Pippo, già alla prima chiamata per delle semplici informazioni ho capito che era un'esplosione di simpatia e soprattutto una persona corretta, limpida e disponibile. La conoscenza di persona non ha assolutamente deluso le nostre aspettative, Pippo e insieme a lui Carla, ci hanno fatto sentire subito a nostro agio non solo aprendoci cordialmente le porte della loro casetta ma anche facendoci da guida e punto di riferimento in qualsiasi momento e per qualsiasi informazione sui luoghi di interesse, sul buon cibo, sulle spiagge più belle... questa vacanza è stata davvero stupenda!!!! Grazie Pippo e Carla e grazie Pisciotta oasi di pace e di bellezza ancora incontaminata !!!!!

kleines Paradies mitten im Olivenhain

  • 5 of 5

herrlich ruhig mit toller Aussicht! Sehr gemütlich eingerichtetes Häuschen mitten im Grünen. Die Anfahrt über die Schotterstraße ist zwar etwas beschwerlich, aber es lohnt sich auf jeden Fall. Das kleine Städtchen Pisciotta, das einer Filmkulisse entsprungen zu sein scheint, erreicht man in 15 Minuten über einen kleinen, steilen Fußweg.Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Vermieter sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit - Grazie Giuseppe e Carla!

LA CASA INCANTATA...

  • 5 of 5

Che dire di altro...le foto parlano da sole. per la primissima volta all'arrivo riscontro una Villetta ed una location ancora meglio di quanto è in foto. Splendida ed incantata. Gli interni sono ben arredati e perfetti, di ottimo gusto. L'esterno è veramente da sogno. abbiamo trascorso 15 giorni fantastici, nella pace e nel relax. la posizione della villetta è fantastica. vicina a tutto e consente di visitare lo splendido CILENTO!!! i proprietari sono squisiti, super disponibili e ci hanno supportato durante tutta la vacanza con informazioni e dritte senza le quali avremmo perso tempo e non avremmo conosciuto posti magnifici. GRAZIE DI TUTTO. se posso permettermi a chiunque veda questo annuncio e valuti di prenotare: FALLO NE VALE VERAMENTE LA PENA !!!!!!

Pisciotta is an ancient medieval village situated on a hill which gently slopes to the sea. The origins of the name derived from Pixoctum which then became 'Pixocta', 'Pissocta' and finally 'Pisciotta'. Surrounded by centuries-old olive groves, the area enjoys a breathtaking view of the most beautiful coastline of the Cilento area. From the main square through characteristic alleys and stairways, you can walk to the highest part of the town, the 'Castle' (Palazzo Marchesale) from which to enjoy the beautiful sea view and then continue along the path (for pedestrians) to the mother church (SS. Peter and Paul). Ancient doorways and charming alleys will silently accompany you to the 'Pendino,' one of the most ancient parts of the town from where you can begin the walk to 'Marina di Pisciotta'. It is recommended to take the tourist route from the town of Pisciotta to the Marina, along a road surrounded by olive trees and the Mediterranean scrub. In just minutes you are at the port of Marina di Pisciotta.

'Marina di Pisciotta' is a typical fishing village where time seems to have come to a standstill with a well-equipped port, small and characteristic bars and one of the most beautiful beaches of the Cilento area. The attribution of the “Blue Flag” certifies that the Pisciotta beaches are among the most clean and beautiful in Italy. Marina di Pisciotta and its beaches can be easily reached by car from the “Cottage in the Olive Grove” in 5 minutes or so.

Completing the town of Pisciotta are the hamlets, Caprioli (bordering Palinuro) with its extraordinary sandy coast and Rodio, a very picturesque, small village perched on the hills which legend claims was originally a settlement of the Knights of Rhodes. From the “Cottage in the Olive Grove” it is easily reachable by foot offering a panoramic and thoroughly enjoyable walk.

On August 10, the town of Pisciotta celebrates its patron, Saint Aniello Abate. The festivities begin on June 9 and end on August 11. On September 8, the 'Madonna of Portosalvo' in Marina di Pisciotta is celebrated with an impressive procession by the sea.
