Property description

The 500 sqm house used to be a farmhouse and is surrounded by fields, vineyards and olive groves at the foot of the medieval mountain village of San Giovanni a Piro looking over one of the most beautiful stretches of the Mediterranean sea. Wild and rural just outside it is stunning and comfortable inside. The Estate is practically self sufficient in terms of food, wine, water and energy. Its owner says: I can lock the door and tell the rest of the world 'you stay there and I stay here'.
Within the estate is a 17th Century country palace that has not been touched for the last two centuries. Five kilometres away is the enchanting little harbour village of Scario from where you can catch a boat and go to an extraordinary stretch of coastline completely unspoilt.

The estate is based in Cilento, described by Conde Nast Traveller as “Italy’s best kept secret...pity there is nowhere to stay”. Amongst nature’s wildest displays are fishermen’s villages along the coast and farmers’ ones on top of the hills. The sea is of an extraordinarily beauty, with 10 miles of coastline accessible only by boat or on foot, as on a deserted island.

Cilento's vast National Park lies on the Tyrrhenian coast south of Naples and in 1998 became Unesco's World Heritage Site. The landscape is dramatic with mountains as high as 1,890m (over 6,000 feet) only a few miles away from the sea, with orchards, vineyards, olive groves and thick forests in between. It has one of the world’s highest biodiversity, with over 50 different species of wild orchid and 90% of medicinal and culinary herbs growing wild.
