A delicious little villa for lovers of tradition: a graceful small house that sprouts in the middle of an age-old olive grove of about 2500 square metres with a breathtaking view on the Gulf of Elea including 1 bedroom, TV-SAT, DVD-Player, lounge with cooking area, washing machine, shower, sleep sofa, heating and ventilation, microwave, Hi-fi set, mosquito nets, completely equipped terrace. A storable baby crib is available. The grounds are completely fenced off and include a parking space.

We are happy to welcome you to our “Terrace of Angels”: a typical and picturesque, single country house, new renovated and with walls of granite stones. The grey stones and the stones with quartz stripes are both types that first emerged from the waters millions of years ago as the Cilento region was formed. It is this sharp slate stone that characterizes the cliffs of Ascea. The interior design features a sober and comfortable style. The furnishings consist of natural materials that normally are used to furnish old country houses such as terra cotta tile floor, chestnut wood beams, balconies, windows and furniture, cookware in copper. This little shelter offers our guests a wonderful view on the endless sea, where your sight can wander for hours. The romantic little house is located in a place where the characteristic colours of the Mediterranean vegetation exalt one other and where silence and peace sometimes are softly interrupted by the rush of the sea. The romantic solitude and the beautiful colours affords our guests a feeling of freedom and relief from daily stress. Suddenly you feel set back in the past experiencing the same emotions as the simple and uncomplicated lifestyle of people that always populated this area. To live in such a place means to abandon yourself to nature receiving in exchange the greatest richness that humans of present times wish more than any other thing: absolute peace of mind. Piano della Torre”- the name of the place where the house is located- is an upland plain that offers a wonderful view of the marine panorama of Ascea and part of the seaside of the Cilento region. From this natural terrace you can see the mythical Cape of Palinuro which extends West into the sea in the shape of a sleeping whale. You reach the sandy beach of Ascea Marina in only five minutes by car, while the town centre with shops and restaurants in Ascea Capoluogo is only a 10 minutes walk from the cottage. Here you can find all your daily necessities. Close by you find agriturismo la “Casa Vecchia” which offers a traditional cilentan cuisine of high quality. From the house one can walk along beautiful paths leading to the cliffs. The name of the cottage, “Terrazza degli Angeli”, sprang from the desire of Franco D’Angiolillo whose son and father, both dear to him, are called Angelo. In Franco’s imagination, these two persons should be guardian angels of this beautiful house with a splendid view on the gulf of Elea. All this exalts the sensibility of Franco who is a cilentan story-teller and known as the “Singer of the sea”. Through his musical compositions and his novels devoted to the sea, he transmits passion and love for this town. Often he lets himself inspire by the overwhelming atmosphere of this place, where the sight can fly in complete freedom over the sea and stop only there where the blue sky and the sea meet each other. This is the ideal dimension for any artist, and it is exactly on the “Terrace of Angels” that the singer of the sea composed some of his best songs.
