Nestled among the thick pine-tree woodland so typical of the Cilento coast, Faro di Ulisse is a stunning Italian seaside villa renovated to the highest standard which still retains much of its charm and beauty. The classic, understated elegance of the interior décor has been tastefully combined with local materials such as bright coloured floor tiles, mosaic and wrought iron bedstead. However, the best feature of all is the spectacular view over the Tyrrhenian sea and the little island of Licosa with its pretty lighthouse. At dusk, the long terrace stretching along the whole perimeter of the villa provides an excellent and comfortable view point from which to admire this unrivalled panorama and the lights of the Amalfi coast.
Part of a vast private domain which belongs to a distinguished member of the Italian aristocracy, Faro di Ulisse is surrounded by acres and acres of beautiful land encompassing varieties of Mediterranean trees and shrubs, a private beach with decked sun terrace, archaeological ruins dating back to the Roman time and historical buildings such as the Palace and its chapel.
Cilento is an area of outstanding natural beauty situated South of the Amalfi coast and the Gulf of Salerno. Perhaps less known, yet absolutely charming and unspoilt, the whole area boasts a rich heritage and culinary tradition. Take a stroll up the narrow cobbled alleyways of the picturesque hilltop village of Castellabate and enjoy the magnificent views over the sea as well as a fresh seafood dish in one of the local trattorie. All around you, the Cilento National Park offers opportunities for trekking and exciting explorations of the territory. Twenty miles north of your villa is the splendidly preserved Greek town of Paestum with its imposing Doric temple and further north you will come across all the most renowned towns of the Amalfi coast: from Positano to Ravello, Amalfi and Sorrento. In the opposite direction, Palinuro is a must to see with its fascinating caves and variety of colourful rocks.
