Staying at Villa Brigida you will enjoy the sun, the beach, the sea, the green of the pine trees, the tranquillity of a small and graceful tourist spot. You will be able to see how Italians really live, and enjoy the good local cuisine, based on fish and on the genuine products of the Cilento National Park, such as mozzarella cheese, olive oil and wine.
Villa Brigida is an excellent starting point to visit the Cilento National Park and the archaeological excavations of Pompeii, Herculaneum, Paestum and Velia, the Amalfi Coast and Capri.
Santa Maria di Castellabate – Only an hour or so South of the Amalfi Coast, is the true Cilento – this delightful little harbour town nestles on the coast below the unspoiled medieval hamlet of Castellabate, perched high above, with spectacular views down the coastal panorama. Still an inhabited Italian community, its name derives from its founder, Saint Costabile Gentilcore, who was the fourth abbot of the Abbey of Cava, who built the castle in the 12th century. Santa Maria still embraces Italian life in the true sense of the word: whilst in the main summer months it comes alive, life in Santa Maria is still wonderfuly Italian, the main events of the day evolving around the fishing catch, and in the evening the “passeggiata”, with families idly gossiping, strolling arm in arm at their own pace. The area is designated a marine park, an the beautiful Punta Licosa, reached by boat or road, is a haven for guests at the Palazzo to walk through pine scented paths, or swim and picnic in the azure sea. Day trips can be made down the coast to places like Palinuro with its beautiful grottoes, whilst the awesome Greek temples of Paestum, with its evocative and moving frescoed “Diver’s Tomb”, are only 20 minutes away. With the buzzy Amalfi coast visible across the bay of Salerno, this wonderful corner of Italy is a wonderful place to escape to.
The closest train station is Agropoli, at 14 km (9 miles). In the area you will find the tourist ports of San Marco (at 4 km, 2.5 miles) and of Agropoli, and it is possible, during the summer, to board ferries to the Amalfi Coast, to Capri and to other location along the Cilento Coast, as well as to take boat trips, fishing trips or diving trips.
In the summer time, in the villages along the coast it is possible to attend a large number of "sagre" (local outdoor festivals with homemade dishes and live music). Pubs, restaurants and discos stay open until very late at night.
If you are a nature lover, it is possible to book guided hikes along naturalist, historical-cultural or gastronomic trails with the Cilento National Park guides.
Staying at Villa Brigida you will be close to some of the most beautiful beaches of the Cilento National Park. The villa overlooks the bay of Santa Maria di Castellabate, which is a protected marine park. The sea is clean and transparent, the beaches made of fine golden sand: a true paradise for adults and children. All along the coastline of the bay you will find long stretches of beach. You will be able to enter the public beach free of charge, or use one of the many beach facilities that in the summer time rent umbrellas and sun lounges and have a cafe and a restaurant. You will also be able to rent boats and practice water sports. The closest beach from Villa Brigida is at approximately 1.5 km (0.9 miles).
