Villa Le Cannicelle
Welcome to your dream holiday villa on the Cilento Coast in Italy. Villa Le Cannicelle, set above the lively town of Villammare, is the perfect place to sunbathe and take in the Mediterranean sea.
Experience Cilento Coast at its finest - amidst lush gardens, endless terraces, sea views, and a panoramic pool with Villammare at your feet.
Villa Cannicelle is a traditional, Italian style with accommodation on 3 levels, a private pool and enjoys wonderful sea views from its elevated position, stretching for miles along the Cilento coast. The villa’s hillside is positioned to enjoy the surrounding Mediterrean views and is just 600 metres from "Santa Maria Le Piane" sandy beach. The ancient, relatively unspoilt fishing village of Villamare and the marina is approximately 1 mile away providing an autentic glimpse of Italy .The village sits at the foot of Cilento National Park, on the rugged and unspoilt Tyrrhenian coast, with its long beaches, colourful Mediterranean flora and seafronts lined with palms and eucalyptus trees. Villammare offers a small selection of bars and restaurants and during the summer months there are lively beach cafes available.
The "marina" of Villammare is less than 1 mile therefore possible to wallk, but a car is recommended because the last part of the road to the villa is quite steep ( its the villas' elevated position that provides such beautiful views!).
Built in a traditional Italian style and comfortably furnished with modern, contemporary décor, the accommodation on each level at Villa Cannicelle is self-contained making this property in Italy ideal for families and large groups. The rooms are bright and airy featuring simple and elegant Mediteranean taste. There are 5 bedrooms in the main villa and an additonal annexe with space to sleep extra guests if required.

Reviews from past guests:
We spent a week at Le Cannicelle in August 2018 for a family reunion and holiday. We were 5 adults and 5 children (aged 6 to 15). We had an amazing week at Le Cannicelle - one that we will remember forever!
The Villa is a gorgeous 3 floor structure and we rented the entire villa. On the first floor (or ground) are 3 bedrooms (one facing the sea, and the other two facing inwards), a large living and dining space, 2 full bathrooms and a nice spacious kitchen. There are two doors that open up to a covered patio that looks over some lovely flowers and out down over the sea. There is also an outdoor dining area and then at a lower level a complete outdoor kitchen. The 2nd floor has a contained 1 bedroom unit with its own living room (with a sofa bed), kitchen, dining area and a bathroom - and the 3rd floor is also another independent bedroom unit (smaller than 2nd floor) but also with a small outdoor patio.
The villa is luxurious and comes with a housekeeper who shows up every day from 9am to 1pm (except Thursdays). This is a huge help as it kept the villa clean and many chores done allowing us to spend more time with our families. From my earliest interactions with the owner, I felt just incredibly comfortable in speaking to him. He is a genuinely caring person who goes out of his ways to ensure that his guests have an amazing time and he is always accessible (we had him on whatsapp). He went above and beyond to make the house comfortable and accessible for each of our family members.
The villa has the most stunning views from all floors looking out towards the hills further south and out into the beautiful sea. The pool is incredibly well kept and we spent at least 3 days lounging by the pool. There is plenty to do (boat excursions, beaches, driving to nearby villages or further out to Pompeii or Naples) or not do and just chill at Villamare. It is a little out of the way - but we loved that as it allowed us to experience a part of Italy that most foreign tourists never get to. The people of Villamare and surrounding villages are incredibly friendly even though they may not speak much English. The food and wine is amazing. - the owner connected us to a chef who came and cooked many delicious 3 course meals for us.
Upon our return I asked one of our 9 year old twins what was his favorite part of his stay at the villa, and he responded "Everything!". Yes, we all agree. Thanks for an unforgettable family reunion
The villa is wonderful. A fantastic location with sea views and private surrounds. Our host made sure all our needs were fully met. Gardens pretty with apricot orchards set against blue sea vistas. The pool was hard to clamber out of. Perfect temperature (June) Equally the nearby sea was so clean and clear and delicious to swim in. Heavenly. Diversity of activities in this area. Cilento national park has stunning mountain scenery tumbling down to the sea. Hiking to waterfalls. Boat trips. One of the best family holidays we have ever had.
This was an incredible place to vacation for my family. If you want to escape to the real Italy, away from the tourists but experience the best of the Italian coast - this is a gem! The pictures do no justice to this place. The villa is full of all the luxuries we needed. The bedrooms were all very large with good design and great amenities. The bathrooms were well stocked and extremely clean - as was the whole houses immaculate. The kitchen was great and a fun place to prepare food. The outdoor kitchen was also a real treasure at night for long dinners with our large group. There are many eating areas and balconies with well appointed seating for morning coffees, afternoon reading and evening cocktails. Lots of space to get some quiet time. Our family enjoyed so much time at the pool. It’s huge and has great steps leading into if you have little ones. There was a box full of pool toys too which was brilliant for our group. There was also a great slide and swing set in the garden - it is an endless activity center for a family. The villa is surrounded with lots of delicious fruit trees and everyday we picked lemons, plums, peaches as we played in the garden. It was magic. Perhaps the best part of the trip was our host and his team. He was incredible helping us plan activities before and during our stay (definitely recommend the boat trip and booking dinner at his local favorites). He shared with us his family wine - which tasted even better with the stories he shared about his family. Maria the housekeeper keeps the home immaculate and always there to help with anything we needed. They really made us feel welcome and shared the best of Italian hospitality. We will be back to stay again - it was heaven
