“The perfect romantic holiday”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

We spent a week enjoying every moment of our stay. When somewhere comes highly recommended you still really don't know what to expect on arrival, but it is clear from the first moment you arrive that the hotel is lovingly cared for with friendly approachable staff in beautiful surroundings. The food and wine is absolutely amazing. Despite our intentions to eat out at restaurants and cafes in the area we couldn't help but return each evening to the hotel. The evening menus are available at breakfast which allows you to decide in advance, but there is no pressure and you can always change your mind later. The room was comfortable with a powerful shower and the whole hotel tastefully furnished and decorated. We went to the local beach for a few hours most days, there were a maximum of 8 people on the beach, with less during weekdays. This is a short walk and down steps (or partly via a lift in the hotel opposite) and also had hotel staff to fetch drinks and food, with sunbeds/umbrellas and kayaks for hire. It was a pleasant drive from Napoli airport and also easy to drive along the coast or inland to small towns and villages. We wanted a relaxing holiday and this was the perfect location for us. We intend to return in 2015 and would like to thank all the staff (from the maids to the owners) for giving us the perfect holiday. This is a must visit location.

Room Tip: We had a sea view room which was wonderful with a Juliet balcony overlooking some of the hotel dinin...

Returning to Villa Cheta after 12 years we found little had changed. The service was as pleasant and helpful as ever and the room spotlessly clean and most comfortable. The food was of course superb, some of the very best we have had anywhere on our many visits to Italy. No one can help the weather so it was a pity therefore that our much looked forward to dinner on the beautiful terrace (one our top ten Italian experiences) never materialised - we thought we'd manage at least one special night in a week. Special mention must be made of the reception staff Maria and Alessandro who went the extra mile to help us and to Baggio and his team for the excellent service at dinner, not forgetting Nico who was most obliging and rescued us from a torrential downpour at Acquafredda beach.All in all a really wonderful stay - Many Thanks to All.

Villa Cheta is one of the most peaceful, romantic hotels I have ever stayed at. It sits on the stunning corner of Maratea, Acquafredda to be exact which has the most magnificent, dramtatic views of the sea. The hotel is surrounded by beautiful mountains and a garden of blooming flowers. It has a choice of patios where you can sit and read and soak up the views. They have an outstanding restaurant, their food is by far the best on the coast of Maratea. The owners Stefania and Piero were amazing and Maria, the woman at the front desk was so kind in suggesting where to go and what to do in the area. I will definetly be back to visit and stay for one week to explore the area and enjoy more food and wine at Villa Cheta.

We had a great holiday at Villa Cheta. Since we entered the building we had the pleasant feeling that everyone that worked there shared a love and a passion for curing the place. We particularly appreciate the nice and friendly atmosphere melted to the elegant style of the villa. Outside the garden is rich of flowers of many colors and scent. Inside the decoration: fornitures, lamps, paints have been chosen with attention for every detail. Our room was large, spotless and very comfortable. The dinner was served on the top terrace with a beautiful view over the cost and the see. During our stay we had no problems with mosquitos. On the rainy nights we enjoyed the dinner in the internal dinning room that is decorated with sophisticated liberty stile chandeliers. Every night we had a rich four course dinner the choice of either fish or meet and outstanding desserts. When eating our meals we appreciated the quality of the ingredients and the great cure that the chef had preparing them. The staff made our stay even more delightful kindly sharing their experience on the best beaches to explore and the touristic attractions in the near by Maratea. The combination of all these qualities resulted in a very relaxing holiday and surely one of the best we have had and we will not hesitate in going back again.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 41, very comfortable for 3 people. The room is on the first floor, faces the garde...

We have stayed at this hotel around 6 times and the marvellous thing is that it just gets better and better. The setting is of course magnificent, with mountains around and the sea before you. The hotel building is elegant, a Liberty building with discreet additions that maintain the character of the original building.The service is attentive discreet unobtrusive. Reception can answer and queries and is ready with good advice about the local area. This year we felt the food, always very good, had moved into the excellent category. The outdoor dining is perfect and is truly romantic, on a terrace to the side of the hotel, with views of seascape, twilight, sunset and moonlight. The choice is limited but we never had any difficulty finding what we liked. There is no pool but the nearby beach, accessible by lift from the hotel above the beach if you purchase a voucher from reception is in a charming bay, but even better to take a 20 minute trip to La Secca, a beautifully appointed beach and picnic complex.

We have just returned once again from a superb stay at Villa Cheta and once again absolutely everything was spot on. Everyone at the hotel are extra special and work very hard to make your stay a memorable one. The hotel itself is spotlessly clean, the food is exceedingly good and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Another lovely touch were the in-room toiletries which Stefainia has developed - which were so lovely that we didn't want to use our own. We visit Villa Cheta every year and always repeat the same views, as there is really nothing at all to complain or be negative about. Looking forward to our next visit in September.

Room Tip: From our pevious visits to Villa Cheta I would suggest that any room is good to stay in

Beautiful villa overlooking lush gardens and the sea. Rooms are elegantly appointed with embroidered linen and antique furniture. Cuisine was best of entire 20 day trip! They offer a 4-course prix-fixe dinner (half board) that is outrageous! Appetizer, pasta, entree, desert. It was actually too much for us, and we discovered we could have opted for a two course meal- but didn't want to miss any of the fabulous dishes.
Parking is tight, but the owner greets you as you pull up and offers to park for you. No hotel in Italy had window screens, so opening the windows at night was not an option with the mosquitoes. But the A/C worked great.
It was the most relaxing stay of our trip, We were well rested, well fed, and near enough to local sights. Highly recommend!

Room Tip: Rooms on second floor facing patio, gardens and sea are spectacular!
