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.

Una sola parola per descrivere tutto: MAGICA. Pippo con la sua cortesia e Carla con il suo tocco di creatività sono riusciti a creare un "nascondiglio" unico nel suo genere. Estrema privacy e tranquillità hanno caratterizzato l'intero soggiorno. Non manca nulla sia all'interno che all'esterno comprese le zanzariere alle finestre. Quando cucinate ricordate di tenere da parte un po' di carne per la volpe dei boschi, verrà a prenderla direttamente dalle vostre mani. La villetta è in una posizione perfetta per raggiungere tutte le più belle spiagge del Cilento. Difficilmente abbiamo trovato un immobile così ordinato e pulito. Pippo e Carla, due persone uniche sempre sorridenti e disponibili, nuovamente GRAZIE !
E' stato un privilegio aver potuto ospitare persone così precise e serie come voi. Abbiamo trovato la casa ordinata e pulita così come l'abbiamo consegnata. Siete stati ospiti eccellenti. Bellissimi ed emozionanti i filmati che ci avete inviato dal terrazzo con la volpe, animale selvatico solitamente schivo, che veniva a farvi visita per mangiare in vostra compagnia... La Villetta è un luogo speciale per persone speciali e questi complimenti così veri e sinceri ci inorgogliscono tanto, così come gli apprezzamenti per Pisciotta e per il Cilento a cui siamo molto legati . Grazie ancora.
Einfach zum genießen !
Wir haben die Woche in dem Häuschen sehr genossen . Es ist wirklich so wie auf den Bildern ausschaut . Sehr sauber , und liebevoll eingerichtet . Die Terasse und die Ausendusche sind perfekt für die warmen Tage . Es ist ruhig aber nicht weit von schönen Strände und von Pisciotta wo jeden Abend das wahre italienische Leben erwacht .
Die Vermieter Giuseppe und Carla sind sehr herzlich und hilfsbereit .
( Ein Tip . Die Bootstour an der Camerotaküste mit Rosa dei Venti sehr zu empfehlen . )

Eine Ecke Paradies
Die Villetta im Olivenhain war einfach traumhaft. Am besten hat uns die Terrasse mit dem schönen Blick aufs Meer und aufs Grüne der umliegenden Olivenhaine gefallen. Drinnen ist das Haus einfach aber hübsch, mit allem ausgestattet, was man so für 1-2 Wochen braucht. Die Besitzer waren einfach perfekt: freundlich und sympathisch, hilfsbereit, zuvorkommend - man kann sich nicht mehr wünschen. Das einzige, was uns ein bisschen gestört hat, waren die Mücken, die auf der Terrasse schon relativ viele waren, und davon welche, trotz Fliegengittern an allen Türen und Fenstern, es geschafft haben, ins Haus zu kommen. Aber auch so, ist dieses Haus auf jeden Fall zu empfehlen. Das Cilento insgesamt ist ebenfalls toll, mit wunderschönem Meer und tollen Stränden. Und wer die Kultur sucht, bleibt ebenfalls nicht enttäuscht!
kleines Paradies mitten im Olivenhain
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!
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.
