This must be one of the most idyllic locations in the Mediterranean. Villa Sofia nestles in a seafront location on a beautiful stretch coastline between Santa Maria di Castellabate (6 km) and Punta Licosa - an exclusive private reserve within the Cilento National Park. Situated on a vast oil producing estate which comprises Roman ruins, the villa itself and a family chapel – Villa Sofia is the perfect seaside retreat. Cook service, babysitter, bicycles, spa services available. Direct access to the sea. Fresh water pool. Air-con, wi-fi. Tasteful interiors. Out of peak season lower price available for max. 8 people.

The estate of Licosa extends over six kilometres and is approached over land, from the gatehouse at the town of Ogliastro. To the left flickers the sun on the sea through pine forests, while to the right are fields of vines, olives and carob trees which clothe the lower slopes of the hills.

While many guests prefer to enjoy the privacy of the estate surrounding Villa Sofia, several pretty small villages are within easy reach. Ogliastro is only 4.5 Km away – accessible through the estate on bicycle and then a mere 200 metres to the village. Castellabate is just 6km, Salerno is 80km, and Naples is 130km to the north.


Villa Sofia can accommodate up to 14 guests in 7 double bedrooms. The large drawing room is perfect for a large house party, but comfortable for a smaller party looking for an attractive space in which to unwind. Wireless internet and cable television are available here. The kitchen is large and has all the required facilities. There is a table ready for eight if needed, although most guests prefer to eat al fresco on the Villas terrace.

Sofia has seven bedrooms. Four are on the ground floor, each with an en suite shower room, and three are on the first floor with a bathroom and shower room. Less than a hundred metres from the Villa is a delightful sea-water pool in which to swim safely, sheltered from the sea breezes by a romantic Roman ruin. For sun bathing there is a large wooden deck closeby, with loungers and umbrellas ready for guests by the sea.

Walks with stunning views are possible in all directions from Villa Sofia- through the forest, towards the private island and lighthouse, along the sea-shore, or into the low hills to San Marco. Bicycle and car rental services are available

The owners of the estate also own Palazzo which operates as a luxury hotel nearby The palazzo’s beach facility, restaurant and reception staff (for booking transfers and tours etc) are available to guests of Villa Sofia.

Please note: The first floor bedrooms have ceiling fans as well as air-con.
