I have visited this treasure for 15 years, it's what I consider the best Villa is all of Italy (And I have travelled all over). This stunning 10-12 room place is on a clifftop, overlooking the Costa di Maratea, and the views are divine. It's in a dot town called Acqufredda, yet, there is loads to do, great walks andthe fabulous medieval town of Maratea 5 minutes away. I always try for a sea view room, on the car park side of the building, but all rooms are good. I have taken groups and friends here, it's a gem.

Try the dining room, Maria the chef cooks casalinga style, you will love the rabbit, or seafood risotto. And the red wine list is very impressive, loads of local Aglianico. The waiters; Biagio and Angela become like friends, their service is warm and attentive. The day manager, Maria is also wonderful. That's what makes this place; comfort, style, chic interiors, friendly staff who go out of their way and the beauty of this art nouveau building.

And the ocean water, far below, is worth the 250 steps. Warm, salty and secluded.

I miss it already!

Room Tip: Ask for an upstairs room overlooking the sea, above the car park.

Maratea is beautiful as is this hotel. We stayed for a long weekend and if I were to go back I would stay here again. We only ate in the restaurant once, but after eating at two other places I would have eaten at the hotel each meal as it was a better deal.

My first visit to Maratea, and the hotel, alone, made the visit worthwhile, had the Maratea coast not been so beautiful. The hotel is surrounded by terraced gardens, beautifully groomed. Room 35 had a postcard sea view. The entire hotel is beautifully furnished, with interesting artwork and antiques, the feel of an old family home, well preserved. Terrific breakfast buffets, and the restaurant offered 2, 3, and 4 course daily menus, plus a la carte options in antipasta, first courses and second courses. The chef's desserts of the day were excellent, we opted to take all our dinners at the hotel. Hotel staff went out of their way to optimize the experience.

There is a (relatively private) pebble beach, barely accessible via a stone stair, overgrown from disuse so early in the season (April); and several public beaches accessible by road. The Maratea coast, south of Salerno and the Almafi coast, is exquisite: We spent hours driving on serpentine roads, from town to town, including a day trip to Paestum, an archeological site north of Maratea.

The entire experience was wonderful. Very sophisticated, low key, quiet. Great food, dinner a bit pricey. Extremely pleasant and helpful staff. Overall, a great experience and we would return to this hotel and the area which is lovely.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the restaurant area have a really nice view of the sea and the grounds.

Stayed here for 5 nights in mid-September and used it as a base for visiting the western part of Basillicata and southern Campania. Beautifully situated overlooking the bay, the rooms and the entire villa are all tastefully decorated and comfortable, with lovely outdoor eating areas if the weather permits. There are pleasant indoor areas to lounge and have your drinks in the evening, and the staff are very polite and helpful.

The food was very good, with a good selection every evening, normally served on the outside terrace.

There is a small beach across the road and down a lot of steps, but well worth the effort!

Be warned though, we went in mid September, when most of the tourist areas close down, and there are a limited number of places to visit within a reasonable driving distance.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a sea view
