Although the pool wasn't working, the beach was really near. The English speaking owner was very friendly and meet us with some local food.
The villa was clean and comfortable, and easily accommodated 4 adults and 3 children 5-9 . It is located within a closed complex of villas with a communal pool and an open green, which was great for the children. The beach is a short walk away and excellent for swimming. The description of the property is fully accurate, and the owner was very helpful.
The owner really couldn't have been nicer - he went out of his way to make sure we had a lovely time. The villa was very nice, suited us perfectly. Our party had four adults and two children ( aged 11 and 18 months). We were all very happy. The villa is very near the lovely beach and great restaurants - can thoroughly recommend Locanda di Loco and Lido Athena. Also the Athena camping shop has great produce - fresh bread, pancetta and mozzarella. The Paestum temples are unbelievably wonderful. The pool was not open till the week after we left but that did not bother us.
What a great place. Four spacious well kept bedrooms. Lovely little kitchen with everything you could need. Good size patio area and dining area. Private parking space. Utility room with washer and loads of toys for the kids for the beach. Even has a table tennis table. Free Wi-Fi.
Very warm welcome from the owner (English speaking Italian) and a lovely welcome pack of fresh local produce.
We spent a fantastic week here and would definitely like to go back.
There is a nice little local shop down near the beach for any food needs and a few restaurants within a short walk. The best one at the end of the drive of the villa.
