Cilento Coast Apartments: A quiet oasis on the coast of southern Italy, Cilento is a pristine region where the mountains and the sea meet. An unspoilt coastline (which lies within the boundaries of a national park), ancient historical monuments, and easy access to Campania's main sights are the ingredients for a fantastic holiday on the Cilento Coast. The Apartments for rent along the Cilento Coast range from intimate flats to sprawling properties. All our Cilento apartments are fully equipped and available for flexible, short-term rental.
Sitting 100km south of Naples in the Salerno province, the 100-kilometre-long Cilento Coast is within easy reach of major destinations like Pompeii, Capri, and the Amalfi Coast, but with its laid-back air and lack of major tourist attractions this Campanian sub-region feels a world away.
The Cliento Coast, much of which is protected by the Parco Nazionale del Cilento e Vallo di Diano, is one of southern Italy's most peaceful areas. Boasting gorgeous sandy beaches, rugged rocky mountains, and postcard-perfect historic villages, the Cilento Coast offers a little something for everyone. Mountain peaks of 2,000 metres provide a dramatic backdrop for the small coves and sandy beaches that line the coast, and there are many opportunities to enjoy either an active holiday or a relaxed seaside holiday.
Cilento towns like San Marco di Castellebate, with its picturesque historic quarter and lively harbour, make great bases for a holiday. In Castellebate you'll find shops, bars and some of the best restaurants on the Cilento Coast. An apartment here is ideal for those looking for a mix of beaches, authentic Italian flavour, and access to Campania's main sights. Other pretty towns to explore include the coastal villages of Palinuro, Camerota, Caprioli, Marina di Pisciotta, Ascea and Acciaroli, and interior villages like Rofrano and Torre Orsaia.
The Cilento Coast's Mediterranean climate means that summers are long, sunny and hot, while winters are chilly and sometimes damp. Average monthly high and low temperatures are: Jan 12?C/3?C, Feb 13?C/4?C, Mar 15?C/6?C, Apr 18?C/8?C, May 22?C/12?C, Jun 26?C/16?C, Jul 29?C/18?C, Aug 29?C/18?C, Sep 26?C/15?C, Oct 22?C/11?C, Nov 17?C/7?C, Dec 13?C/5?C.
The airport nearest to the Cilento Coast is Naples' Capodichino, 60km away. British Airways has direct flights from London to Naples; travel time is about three hours. Alitalia also makes the flight, though you'll likely have a layover in Milan.
Once you've lounged on the gorgeous beaches, soaked up the Mediterranean sun, and eaten your fill of the rich regional dishes, be sure to visit the Parco Nazionale del Cilento e Vallo di Diano, Italy's second-largest national park. Encompassing towering mountain peaks, pristine coastline, unusual rock formations and a wealth of flora and fauna, this is a great place for hiking, climbing and bird watching. Within the park search out the Paestum, an ancient Greek temple that's UNESCO protected. From the Cilento Coast, you can also take day trips to Naples, Pompeii, Capri, or the Amalfi Coast.
