Perdifumo apartment description

In the former Franciscan monastery Antico Convento, founded in the 14th century, can still be felt today a touch of the past. The guest wing of the monastery is home to seven different designed rooms each with a bathroom (shower / WC / bidet), cupboard, TV, internet wlan. In addition to the facilities include a kitchen, a living room and a terrace. Because of its seven rooms, the monastery is particularly interesting for groups. But also for families and couples accommodation is ideal, since it is possible to book less than seven rooms. The unassigned Rume during your stay are not otherwise rented. On request, prepare the cordial owner to surcharge in the small tavern of the monastery breakfast and dinner. A grocery store is located at 200 meters, after 5 km you will get to the nearest supermarket. Your car can be parked in a public car park next to the monastery.

Below you will find detailed information about the individual rooms:

# 1 + 2. Single room with doorway to double rooms
No. 3:. Double bed, French balcony
# 4:. Two single beds, French balcony
# 5:. Queen bed with two extra beds, French balcony
# 6:. Double bed with an extra bed, terrace access

The very spacious lounge features an open fireplace in front with two large leather sofas, a dining table and a dresser. From here you get access to the terrace and the kitchen, which is equipped with 5-burner gas stove, oven, fridge freezer, dishwasher and a small dining table.

From the courtyard leads into the small tavern. There you will participate on request at dinner and wine or liquor tastings. Try for example the excellent fennel liquor, to which the owner is very proud! For those who are interested in the 'Dieta mediterranea', the owner offers cooking classes and gives you his knowledge.


The owner offers a transfer to the most beautiful hiking trails in the environment (minibus for up to nine people), for example, the hike at Monte Stella or the trails "Antichi Mulini", "Conventi e Castelli" and "Calore di Felitto".

                          Rocca Cilento, founded around 1110 AD, is the place of origin and namesake of the Cilento region.

                          Due to its strategically important position Rocca Cilento held with his 'castello medioevale', the medieval castle, until the mid-16th century the administrative seat of the noble house Sanseverino held. The castle has five round towers, which absicherten the needle seat together with the bastion. The fort counts among the most impressive fortifications in the Cilento. Even the venerable church of Rocca Cilento is worth a visit.

                          From the town one can visit many interesting hiking trails, such as 'Valle dei Mulini', 'Valle dei Monaci' or 'Valle del Monte Stella'. On top of Mount Stella, the highest elevation of the western Cilento, with his first 130 meters you walk directly on the crest of the mountain, from where the hinterland of the Cilento and the coastal landscape with the open sea can be admired.
