Cilento

Campania is the region south of Rome most famous for Naples, Pompeii and the Amalfi coast. Our home in Campania is a sub-region called Cilento (pronounced chee-lento) which has a spectacular coastline on the Tyrrhenian sea and rugged mountains where people will find some of Italy's most ancient and traditional small villages. The Cilento National Park attracts hikers, mountain bikers and other adventure sport enthusiasts. Once part of the Magna Graecia, there are ruins from colonies in Cilento including Velia, the home of the Eleatic school and the philosopher Parmenides, and the magnificent temples at Paestum or Poseidonia. Medieval towers from the Normans and Frederick II can be found throughout the mountainside.

There are several UNESCO World Heritage sites in the Cilento: The Greek and Roman ruins at Paestum and Velia, the medieval village of Castellabate, the monastery of San Lorenzo di Padula and Cilento, Vallo di Diano National Park.

The "Mediterranean Diet" was designed by Dr. Ancel Keys after he observed the longevity of people living in the Cilento. The local cuisine is known for chickpeas, wild greens, anchovies, rosemary. The Cilento is also famous for its buffalo mozzarella production which has been granted the prestigious DOP status. Large local farms also produce excellent tomatoes, artichokes and kiwis that are exported worldwide.

 
 
 

Borgo La Pietraia

On the mountain road between Paestum and Capaccio is Borgo La Pietraia. In collaboration with renowned architect Nicola Pagliara, the Scariati family created this modern agriturismo to look like a small village. Above all, the Scariatis, who have lived in Capaccio for centuries, want to share the beauty of the Cilento countryside and the bright blue horizon overlooking the Tyrrhenian sea.

Borgo La Pietraia enjoys a majestic panorama of mountains and sea stretching from the Sorrento peninsula to the Cilento coast. The buildings and terraces are all built from local stone, making the property feel as though it grows organically from the landscape, in complete harmony with nature.
