Overview

About the property

The Villa Is located about 2 minutes walk from the beach, locality of Licinella

The Lemon Tree Villa is located in Paestum on the Cilento Coast. Paestum is a world heritage, archaeological site. Located two minutes walk from the beach, you can easily access the free beach and two seaside resorts equipped with umbrella, lounges and deck chairs. The beach is a broad beach with fine sand. The Tyrrhenian sea has minimal tidal change and winds are exceptionally mild in summer, and it is exquisitely peaceful in the morning at sunset.

It is the ideal place for switching off and enjoying the seaside. The nearest shops are a few minutes walk (for groceries, new agents and convenience store). Alternatively, a 5 minutes drive will take you in Localita' Torre, the village centre with a good choice of shops, mozzarella factories and restaurants.

You will find the villa to be spacious and bright, with an ample patio, a delightful garden and a first-floor terrace. The villa was renovated in 2010 and features a modern and open plan design creating a continuum between the inside and the outdoor space. There is plenty of space for personal privacy and relaxation.

About Erika

Erika purchased this villa in 1953

Why Erika chose Cilento

It is a spacious excellently renovated comfortable and secluded villa. The garden is a fantastic place to retreat and relax, and if you are travelling with children, it has plenty of outdoor space for kids to play around. You are so close to the beach you can hear the sea. It is the ideal place for switching off and relaxing.

The generous size rooms and the four bathrooms make sure you never feel like stepping onto each other's feet. The barbeque is perfect for al fresco dining and lazy evenings.

All you need to take with you is your beach towel, flip-flops, swimming gear and sunscreen!

What makes this villa unique

Away from the crowd and noisy towns, you are meters away from a sandy beach. The large garden is perfect for a refreshing siesta. The house is vast and spacious , and yet you may find yourself spending all your time outdoor, in the garden or on the nearby beach

Guestbook comments from the owner

As usual, we really had a great time: the house was welcoming and clean, the garden perfect and the surroundings often so quiet: it was all too short!



We don't know yet about next year, but we'll keep in touch!



Best regards to you all, and Mimmo particularly.

Villa parfaite

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons loué cette villa à deux couples, deux enfants par couple. La configuration et l'équipement de la villa sont parfaits : 4 chambres indépendantes, autant de sdb, très bien équipée, agréable à vivre, dans un état de propreté impeccable... Accueil charmant et corbeille de fruits à l'arrivée.

Tout était présent ou fourni : parasols, matelas de plage, draps, serviettes, ... La villa est proche de la mer et de petits commerces, dans une zone résidentielle préservée du tourisme de masse. A quelques minutes du site archéologique de Paestum, une heure trente de Pompéi et de Naples.

A recommander absolument.

A beautiful well equipped villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in Paestum. House is really nice, very clean and well equipped with a spacious shaded terrace, surrounded by a private beautiful garden. It is ideally placed, just a short (5 minute walk) to beautiful beaches and close to the village. The owner, Erika, was exceptionally helpful and obliging. We strongly recommend this place!

Total bliss for any taste

  • 5 of 5

I spent the whole of July 2016 in this house with a friend and 3 kids. We booked it on Internet and pre-paid before arrival. From the moment we booked the house, there had been excellent communication with the owners, who were very helpful, warm, professional and spoke perfect English. The house is a 2-hour drive from Napes airport or about 5 minutes’ drive from Paestum train station.

The house actually looks much better in real life, as compared to the photos posted on internet (which are already very good). It is a light, spacious and newly renovated 2-level building, fully equipped with anything you might wish for and even more. It has a modern security alarm system and an iron gate, which might be quite comforting for paranoid people like myself. Realistically however, the location is extremely calm and friendly, so no need for the security system anyway. The house is in a super-tidy condition, all beds and pillows are new, good quality bed-linen and towels were provided for all of us. It has WiFi, Air-conditioning, dishwasher, microwave, stove and oven, fridge and freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer, vacuum cleaner, TV, DVD and all sorts of other gadgets, like coffee makers, blenders for smoothies, mixers, pots and pans and much more.

The house has an immaculate garden which is regularly and perfectly maintained. We were actually allowed to pick the lemons from the trees in the garden! There were other goodies available for picking: chilli-peppers, basil, rosemary, parsley, celery etc. This added a massive charm to our stay! The garden had a coal Weber BBQ and an outdoors shower.

The beach is 100 meters away. The water is quite shallow close to the shore, which was brilliant for kids, who spent hours there and hardly needed to be supervised. The beach is clean, sandy and calm. There is a possibility of renting sunbeds, boats, jet skis etc. There are full-time BeachGuards every 500 meters, as well as cafés that offer drinks or snacks.

The house is a short drive from Paestum city centre. There are several small fruit and veg shops within walking distance, as well as a butcher and a fish monger. Big supermarkets are a short drive away. It is possible to survive without a car, if one seeks total relax. On the other hand, the house is a perfect base for sightseeing trips and there are plenty of magnificent jewels that one should not miss: Amalfi, Sorrento, Salerno, Capri, Agropoli, Castellabate, Pompei and Vesuvious are all nearby.

a must see place!

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding property including all you can ever think of!

Lovely and quiet surroundings with the piano player practicing next door giving it a distinctive touch. The whole house was so neat and clean on our arrival. We really appreciated the air conditioning upstairs for peaceful nights. Enough playroom affordable for children to play outside while late night dinner is gently cooking over the barbecue.

As mythical and unforgettable as Paestum.

With best wishes Pina, Mimmo and Erika.

Wonderfull time at seaside

  • 5 of 5

The owner familie is very nice, friendly and helpful. We were greeted with an extraordinary tasty fruit plate. The villa is spacious, with a plenty place for 8 people. Upstairs are the bedrooms with 3 baths, all bedrooms have air con.

Huge garden with big terrace, table, BBQ and picturesque Lemon Tree.

Walking distance (3 min) to the sea. The beach is sandy and the water shallow, so optimal for families with younger children.

Parking lot for 3 cars.

Nearby several mozzarella factories. Especially "Barlotti" is worth a visit (guided tours, 3 Euro p. P.).

We can highly recommend this location for a familie holiday!!!

Paestum is a world renowned archaeological site dating back to the times of Magna Grecia. The temples are amongst the best preserved in Europe and are part of the UNESCO heritage. The archaeological Museum hosts an impressive collection of artefacts and the frescos once decorating the tombs. The archaeological area is coasted by a promenade with numerous bars and restaurants. Paestum is divided in small suburbs. The Licinella offers shops, restaurants, bars and numerous seaside resorts. Most businesses are family run. There are no chain stores other than the supermarket. The area is also renowned for the buffalo mozzarella production and numerous factories (caseifici) are in the surrounding areas and can be visited. Heading South you may want to visit Santa Maria DI Castellabate a picturesque village with vibrant nightlife, right on the beach. Away from the beach is the National Park of Monti Lattari with the Alento Basin and natural reserve.

SALERNO: this is a lovely town set on the seaside, with lovely promenade, lots of shops, including high end shops, restaurants and bars. You can visit the old town centre with the Duomo and enjoy life with the locals. People in Salerno love to stroll around for shopping and chatting. It has a vibrant nightlife.

From Salerno you can get the ferry to explore the Amalfi Coast, Positano, and the beautiful island of Capri. The new Stazione Marittima was a project by the world famous Architect Zaha Hadid .

It can easily be reached by car or by train if you don't want to worry about parking. The train station is right in the middle of town and close to many amenities. The archaeological site of Pompei can also be reached by train or by car. Ercolano ( Herculaneum) and Pompei will require a full day out and cannot be done on the same day.

OUTLET shopping: there is a large outlet shopping village 15 minutes drive from Paestum.
