Family holiday.
Beautiful well equipped villa only a few minutes walk down hill to the costal town of Santa Maria. We stayed in apt Coratina which is on the lower ground floor. It has a large secure outdoor space which is ideal for younger children. We would happily stay here again if we ever travel to this beautiful part of Italy..

Ottima scelta
Abbiamo soggiornato nell'appartamento Coratina per due settimane in Settembre. La villa corrisponde esattamente alla descrizione, ci hanno fornito biancheria per i letti, per il bagno e anche tutta il necessario per la cucina (strofinacci, detersivo, spugne). Anche la raccolta dei rifiuti era ben organizzata, la villa ha il suo spazio per la raccolta differenziata. Molto comoda la piscina in comune, ogni appartamento dispone di un posto auto all'interno della proprieta'. L'appartamento e' ideale per 4 persone ma anche in 5 ci si sta benissimo. Il proprietario sig. Alfonso e il suo collaboratore Florin sono stati molto disponibili per qualsiasi nostra richiesta. La spiaggia più' vicina dista circa 600 mt, al ritorno gli ultimi 250 sono molto ripidi e bisogna attraversare la Statale, ma per noi e'stato solo un buon allenamento... Unica piccola pecca: il wi-fi funziona a singhiozzo e solo all'esterno dell'appartamento. Santa Maria e' un bel paese, ci sono diverse spiagge da provare, ristoranti, gelaterie, negozi ma tutto il Cilento merita una visita. In conclusione, un'ottima scelta per una vacanza al mare.

Villa Elaia: La "nostra..." seconda casa, anzi Casa con la "C" maiuscola.
Carissimi, lascio a voi giudicare se una famiglia che si reca per l'ottavo anno nello stesso appartamento è soddisfatta o meno! Udite udite: GIA' ABBIAMO PRENOTATO per Agosto-Settembre 2016, STESSO APPARTAMENTO; sarà il 9 anno!!" Appena entri in casa, senti l'odore di bucato delle lenzuola e degli asciugamani, Alfonso (proprietario della casa) ci fa sempre trovare, nel frigo, acqua, latte e vino freschi, per rilassarci dal viaggio. "Attenzione" a chi ci precede, non fate danni e lasciate pulito come Alfonso vi presenta l'appartamento. Siete pregati di "non" prendere molta confidenza con Florin, "Manager-collaboratore" di Alfonso, siamo gelosi! Saluti a tutti -Attilio & Antonella-

A great week in Villa Elaia
We had a great holiday in Santa Maria di Castellabate - although a busy (it's the Med in August!) we found plenty of places to eat and drunk,and space on the beach. We were very happy with apartment Ortice in Villa Elaia. Although up a steep road to the top of the village - so not suitable for those with difficulty in walking - it was a comfortable apartment, and we liked the balcony with a view of the Med for breakfast, There is a (relatively) busy road to cross to get to the town, but the sound proofing is good and you don't hear a thing at night. Would happily recommend it to friends - and Alfonso is planning to build a swimming pool.

Perfect coastal villa for a relaxing vacation.
Situated south of both Agropoli and Paestum, 15 and 20 minutes by car, respectively, Santa Maria di Castellabate is a town no one touring the eastern coast south of Salerno should miss. On the hill opposite the town, across SS267 is The Villa Elaia. The villa includes several units of various sizes, housing from two to eight or nine people. It is a very comfortable, clean and well-maintained establishment and the proprietor, Alphonso Cianfrone is most accommodating. What makes this the perfect place for couples, and families are the wonderful views from the upper level units, and the quiet serenity of the area. From the terraces of our unit Cerasella, we overlooked the city and the sea, and had many breathtaking sunsets. A roll-down awning allows one to decrease the amount of sun obtained during the day, however, in the later afternoon, the sun directly shines onto the terrace. Although it can be warm in the later summer months, there is a breeze, which makes it most comfort. The Units are nicely decorated, and are supplied with enough dinnerware and cookware to accommodate the number of people staying in each unit. The sizes of the terraces allow ample space, correlating to the size of the unit. Each terrace is equipped with a barbeque grill, lounge chairs, and a table and chairs. The pictures in the advertisement are most accurate, but fail to capture fully the beauty of the surroundings. Our stay at the Villa Elaia was the week from August 10th – 17th/ 2013, a celebratory week for all of Italy. As August 15th is the Assumption Day, also known as Ferragosto. From our terrace we could see the fireworks along the coast, including those from as far away as Positano. I hope to return to the Villa Elaia sometime in the future.

We loved it - beautiful area and great apartment in this well maintained pretty villa
The property is located in a beautiful setting and it is well maintained. The place looks just like the website photos. Very comfortable apt - we had Coratina a lower unit that has a large private patio that was great. There were five of us ranging in ages 12 to 62 and the accommodations were perfect. The views are lovely - you can still see the ocean through the trees even on the lower units. The place is a five minute walk to town -- steep down ( and back up but good for working off gelato ) through a typical italian town with so many photos ops along the way! You have to cross a busy highway to get to town but we all managed to do so safely on a daily basis. Our neighbors next door were from Denmark and they had been coming since 2006. A few days there was a strong smell of smoke in the area - we told Alfonso and was investigating to find our what it was. It was not an issue in the property itself but in the hill area. The town of Santa Maria is great fun and the area is incredibly beautiful! The apt is suitable for children and there were many.There are swing in the nice shared green outdoor garden area. WIFI is temperamental so if you need it for work you will be frustrated - for vacation it was ok. We will return!

Ottima Location
Bellissima mansarda con tetto in legno e terrazza vista mare. Arredamento molto curato e ricercato. Dotazione dell'appartamento perfetta, con tanto di lavatrice, forno a microonde, lavastoviglie e tutti i piccoli ma utili accessori di casa. Appartamento pulito e grande professionalità da parte del proprietario Alfonso. Siamo stati veramente bene.

good value handy to beach
We booked this apartment at the last minute, looking for somewhere well priced and near to the beach. And this place is. Although it’s quite small it’s clean and well kept, and having the garden and the terrace makes it much more manageable. The walk to the beach is probably 10-15 minutes with kids, all downhill, and through the town which is lovely. The area is much quieter than other nearby areas (Amalfi) and equally attractive. The beaches were great and we enjoyed our time there. The only negative was the busy road near which was noisy and had to be crossed. Also we arrived on a Saturday and the apartment isn’t stocked with cleaning materials, so we struggled to do dishes and clean until Monday. But Alfonso was very helpful and made us very welcome. This place worked fine for us for 5 days. Oh and Pasteum is an unbelievable- great value and awesome to visit.
