In 2009 the village of Castellabate was chosen for the re-make of the classic film 'Benvenuti al Sud', which won the hearts of many Italian cinema fans on its release in 2010.

You could take a boat trip and see the blue grottos or the famous island of Capri (boats leave from San Marco which is only 10 mins drive from Castellabate, and go direct to Capri in season), visit the natural beauty of Punta Licosa and the island, explore the Cilento National Park, see one of the local Buffalo Mozzarella Farms and taste the world famous cheese, see the magnificent lost city of Paestum, the Royal palace at Caserta, the Phoenician ruins at Velia, see Herculaneum and Pompei, go kayaking in Felitto, visit the famous Amalfi coast (by car or boat directly from San Marco), the gulf of Salerno, Naples or Rome or just enjoy the beaches or relax outside and take in the views from the villa. The Times Newspaper wrote: The famous Amalfi coast near Naples has house prices as dizzying as the views so it pays to head south to Cilento and it is a different story. White sandy beaches and sparkling, clean water. From Castellabate, you can trace the coastline along the Amalfi peninsula – and watch the sun set.
