Found in one of the most idyllic locations in the Mediterranean, Villa Serena sits hidden amongst pine parklands. Located on a tranquil stretch of coastline, the beach is only accessible to guests of the estate, ensuring complete privacy. 

Villa Serena can accommodate up to 14 guests across 7 double bedrooms. The property has been restored to the highest standard, combining the best of Italian tradition with modern comforts. Less than 100 m from the villa is a large freshwater pool which is protected from the sea breezes by ancient Roman ruins.

A large wooden deck offer plenty of comfortable spots for sunbathing and the gardens have plenty of gorgeous shady spots where you can set yourself up with a cool drink and a good book. A large terrace running the length of the villa provides excellent open-air dining opportunities with plenty of shade at lunchtime and romance under the stars in the evening. The views to the Islet of Licosa are magic and at night you can see the twinkly lights of the Amalfi Coast.

Guests are able to relax and enjoy absolute comfort while they delight in the informal and peaceful atmosphere provided by the home and its grounds. For a completely unique and memorable holiday, Villa Serena is the perfect choice.


Good news! For a little extra, this property can be booked as a Vill’otel

South of the small fishing harbour of San Marco and close to Licosa Point (named after the siren Leucosia) lies Villa Serena. The villa is delightfully isolated and, at the same time, just a short drive from the southern Italian fishing village of Santa Maria di Castellabate where there is a fantastic open-air market every Saturday morning.

At the southerly point of the Amalfi Coast, 8 km south of the villa, lies the exclusive private reserve of Licosa, within the Cilento National Park. Private boat trips and picnic lunches can be arranged to Licosa, an extraordinary 6 km stretch of private coastline where there is crystal clear water ideal for snorkeling. The pine woodland bordering the sea is delightful for a pleasant stroll or cycle.

Available nearby:
- Scuba diving, sailing and windsurfing
- Trekking
- Tennis courts
- Horse riding

The pretty medieval village of Castellabate is 6 km away and is a delight to explore. From there, guests can enjoy numerous half and full day trips. The magnificent Doric Temples of Paestum are just 30 minutes away, and the archaeological sites of Pompeii, Herculaneum and Oplontis are within easy reach by car. The villa can arrange a chauffeur if required.

The legendary Amalfi Coast, with towns such as Vietri sul Mare, is famous for its ceramics. Ravello, with its beautiful Villa Rufolo and Villa Cimbrone, and the delightful Positano provide enjoyable day trips. The magnificent 14th century Charter House of Padula (a monastery) lies inland and is definitely worth visiting. The island of Capri, as well as Positano and Amalfi, can be reached by hydrofoil, private boat or helicopter.

Gorgeous churches, monuments, museums and the renowned Capodimonte Royal Palace and museum makes Naples a must-see. Helicopter trips can be arranged so guests can enjoy the most spectacular views of the coast and places of interest further away.
