Cilento: the landscape
Villa Tina Holiday Homes is situated on a marvelous stretch of coastline from Positano to Punta Licosa, in the very heart of Cilento.
The National Park of Cilento, Vallo di Diano and Alburni extends over 180,000 hectares filled with extraordinary natural and anthropic treasures in the province of Salerno, less than two hours from Naples. It has been declared UNESCO site since 1998 because of its universal outstanding value, therefore it is a protected area and an international tourist attraction.
The Cilento is an enchanting land, deep in the Mediterranean bush: olive groves, fig trees and vineyards dominate it. More over, the landscape is sprinkled by numerous villages and hamlets which maintain at least a fortress, a church, a castle, a palace, a monastery of their past. There also are small ports with old fishermen and wooden boats evoking the novel “The old man and the sea” by Hemingway.
Time slows down in these villages perched on hilltops, with terraces overlooking the seaports, in a quaint atmosphere that touches deep inside.
