We have just returned from a five days stay at Villa Cheta and our only thoughts are: we must come back! The liberty style and the beauty of the Villa caught us from the very first moment: the details of the terrace garden display themselves step by step in a continuous surprise of colors, smells and views on a sky looking sea. Inside the Villa every element is positioned and kept as in a private home: linen beds, antiques furniture and design lights made us feel in the place we would like to live in. One must have felt the same while traveling on the Orient Express. One last nostalgic note: the restaurant is one of the best ever tried, from the excellent fish and vegetables tempura to the Calamarata pasta and the octopus and potato hors d’oeuvres with olives topping... amazing! As amazing is the staff taking care of all our needs with sweetness and always wearing a smile.
If you happen to travel the South of Italy, you must experience Villa Cheta: we will again, for sure.

This Hotel is a most stylish Art Nouveau villa retaining all the originial features and elegance of a grand Italian family home. The facade and the interior are tastefully decorated and it was a pleasure to return there after each day's outing. Dining by candlelight on the terrace, beside the beautiful gardens overlooking the sea, was a moving experience. We enjoyed excellent Italian cuisine especially fish and the service was superb. This hotel has fabulous views of the spectacular coastline and mountains to the rear. It is near a private beach and also within close driving distance of several other delightful beaches nestled between the rocks. In this regard, we particularly liked La Secca beach. We would definitely like to return.

This Hotel not only combines excellent italian cuisine and comfortable living, the service is outstanding and every wish catered for. Not far is a private Beach and the little village of Aquafredda is very charming. The lack of the crowds is a plus, and this was a Holiday we wish to repeat...
Say no more: la dolce vita in Villa Cheta
Regards
Frank & Rita

Room Tip: It pays to book a room with a sea view, stunning view, really!

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.
