Scario house description

Designed by a Roman architect and repeatedly praised in journals as architectural work of art, the villa is nestled on the cliff and perched high above the Gulf of Policastro, surrounded by lush Mediterranean vegetation. The terraces offer a panorama that the visitor literally takes your breath away. The view ranges from lush green mountains, the fishing village of Scario, the Bay of Policastro to Calabria. The villa Il Gabbiano is divided into the main house and an outbuilding that can be rented for a possible 5th and 6th person. The main house has two bedrooms each with private bathroom (shower / bidet / toilet) and a large kitchen. A small path leads you from the main house to the annexe, which has one room with two single beds, a small terrace with two chairs and a small table and a private bathroom (shower / WC / bidet). You can park your car on the fenced grounds of the holiday house

The aim of the architect was not to integrate the Villa Il Gabbiano as an intruder in nature, but as a harmonious complement to the Cilento fauna and flora in the landscape. And this has succeeded, because the shapes and colors of the landscape are reflected in the architecture of the house again. In the living room there is for example the limestone of the Cilento, which reflects the course of nature with his stick curve shape. Despite the closeness to nature but he has also managed to put it stylish and modern accents. Almost the entire Furnishing was designed by himself.

To the main house and the annexe has a 1 500 m² plot with a barely comprehensible to the eye plant diversity. Inserted in the Mediterranean maquis give flowers of all kinds, from Bougainville to lantana, the garden of colorful swab.

The scale for short walks, paths, paved with the stones of the region, divided perfectly into the landscape. The pond with its rippling Fontane, small benches to rest, the fresh scent of nature and the everlasting sea view can be a stay at Villa Il Gabbiano to a completely relaxing experience.

Nearest railway station: Policastro Bussentino or Sapri.


The center of Scario is about 800 meters from the Villa Il Gabbiano.
Here you will find grocery shops, café bars, restaurants and a beautiful promenade for walking etc.

The nearest beach is approximately 1.2 km away.

Hiking tip: Directly from the house you can to the medieval hilltop town of San Giovanni a Piro (Cilento) hike.
