...in the heart of Cilento!
The closest beaches, restaurants, shopping facilities and bars are in St. Maria di Castellabate. The village is situated on the coast and can be reached by car in only a few minutes or on foot in 25 Minutes. A market is held there every Saturday morning. The mediaeval village of Castellabate, with its narrow streets and squares is situated on the hill just behind the manor- only a 15-minute walk. In 2015 it won the award for being one of the most beautiful villages in Italy.
The Manor is situated in the middle of the national Park of Cilento, about 125 km south of Naples. It is allocated on a hill between Santa Maria, on the sea front and the mediaeval village of Castellabate.
Along the hill several fruit trees, oak trees and our olive grove of which we still produce our own olive oil, are situated on more than 2 hectares.
Lassen Sie den Blick schweifen...
Das Landgut A' Cràpa Mangia liegt dem Meer zugewandt auf einem Hügel. Man kann den Blick über die ganze Bucht von Santa Maria di Castellabate und den Golf von Salerno auf die Amalfiküste schweifen lassen. In der Ferne sind Capri und bei klarer Sicht auch Ischia zu sehen.
Noch verlässlicher zu bestaunen sind die feuerroten Sonnenuntergänge, wenn sich langsam der Tag dem Ende neigt.
Translating A' Cràpa Mangia from the Cilento dialect means “the goat is eating”. Having a goat in the past meant that the people who owned one lived in prosperity, and if the goat was eating everybody else was fine, too. This is the reason why the people from Cilento loved greeting other people with the question “Is the goat eating?” – “The goat is eating”.
