All the pleasures of a Slow holiday in Italy. A quiet hilltop village in the Cilento National Park; a beautiful house hugged by olives, figs, flowers; a local restaurant (special deal for guests) serving regional wines; a ‘via verde’ through the stunning scenery of Torchiara. Angela has rebuilt an old family home rich in history in a traditional style. Casa Bassa (the old olive press) has country-style rooms in the landscape’s warm browns and bright yellow-greens. Casa Alta (on the terrace above) holds more bedrooms, a large, fire-warmed sitting room, a small library, a dining room with country antiques, a small tower for reading and reflection. Unwind in the jacuzzi, sauna and steam room, or book a massage. Outside, a swimming pool in southern Italian sunshine, a wellness hut with gym and views stretching over forested hills. Feisty Angela knows the area’s best spots while Michaela looks after guests with homemade cakes and a warm smile. It’s a seven-minute drive to Agropoli for blue flag beaches and near to Palinuro, Amalfi and Positano. If archaeology is your thing, head for Paestum, Velia, Pompeii and Ercolano. Enchanting, carefree, delightfully Slow.
