We have just returned from 2 weeks staying in the Penthouse apartment at Discovery-Agropoli. The weather, property and views were first-class and we shall certainly return.

In the past 8 years we have stayed at 10 different self-catering properties throughout Italy and Discovery-Agropoli is by far and away the best of these. It is the only property we have visited more than once, this being our FOURTH visit, and in that time we have used both the Copenhagen and Penthouse Apartments. The property itself stands on a hill behind the town commanding great views over the town and the bay.

The apartments are very well-equiped and, unusually for self-catering in Italy, the owner lives on the property. Raffaele can therefore be contacted most days to give advice or solve any little problems, despite leaving at 4am each morning to go fishing. We have always found him to be exceptionally helpful especially when we had to report a lost camera, pay a parking ticket and for information on local services. He is also fluent in English and German. The property can be difficult to find on the first visit - but Raffaele always arranges to meet new guests in the town and will bring you to the accommodation then. After that, it's very easy.

The property's two guard dogs are kept either in the owner's apartment or tied up on a long chain in the garden. They give an extra feeling of security while being very friendly & playful.

We feel that a car is pretty essential for a stay at Discovery-Agropoli both for trips to the supermarket and for exploring the town and the Cilento Coast. The fact that the property is set on the hillside would make walking back from the shops with full bags very tiring.

Agropoli and the Cilento Coast are very popular with Italian holidaymakers so you won't hear too many non-Italian voices. A number of people speak some English and we've never had any problems with language. You can easily make a day trip, by car or ferry, to Amalfi, Positano, Sorrento, Capri or Pompeii as we have done, but these places merit no more than one visit. Closer to home you can visit one of the many blue-flag sandy beaches or lovely fishing towns on the Cilento Coast, the temples at Paestum, or go shopping in Salerno. Whatever we did, it was always a pleasure to return from the tourist throng to the tranquility of our balcony at Discovery-Agropoli and it's beautiful views.

We are grateful to both Raffaele and Marion for making our stay(s) enjoyable and can highly recommend a visit.
