The eternal charm of Southern Italy  

by Pool Builders on 05-03-2011 in Articles

To go on a holiday to Italy means experiencing magnificent landscapes and unique monuments. Only few countries in the world can boast such a rich heritage like the „boot" of Italy. Especially in southern Italy there is so much to explore. Much of the Cilento region, so far untouched by mass tourism, is a national park and Unesco world heritage site, but also many Sicilian baroque cities such as Syracuse have been added in the Unesco's list.

PureItaly offers charming villas and houses for your unforgettable holiday in southern Italy.

Italy is one of the top holiday destinations also for 2011. If the cities of art are loved for their unique monuments and works of art, the landscapes attract visitors with their authentic beauty. The Italian Unesco cities, embracing both nature and art, are a worthwhile visit. Hardly no other country in the world can boast such a big treasure of Unesco heritage sites. Of the total 911 Unesco sites in 151 countries, 44 are in Italy.

Nature and culture in the Cilento region - Italy's youngest National Park

The Cilento region, in Campania, is a worthwhile discovery among the Italian Unesco sites. Its interior is all sun-baked hilltop villages and mountains. Its coast is of the twisting Mediterranean variety, adorned by bougainvillea and dreamy little resorts. Much of the Cilento region, so far untouched by mass tourism, is a national park and Unesco world heritage site since 1998 together with the historic sites of Paestum and Velia and the Certosa di Padula.

PureItaly offers in Cilento extraordinary holiday accommodation, such as the complex Acquazzurra on a charming stretch of coastline: the Gulf of Policastro. This exclusive complex with its well-appointed and tastefully designed apartments and shared pool enjoys a magnificent sea front position.

Also ideal for dream beach holidays is Rupe Alta, a charming self catering holiday villa with pool which can also be rented on a B&B basis. It nestles in the heart of the Cilento National Park, between Punta Licosa and the picturesque fishing village of San Marco di Castellabate. Its seven rooms are a perfect blend of old world charm with modern comforts, thanks to a careful restoration work carried out using traditional techniques and materials.

Sicily - always a worthwhile discovery

Sicily, the largest island in the Mediterranean has still a lot to offer with its luxuriant vegetation, eventful history and diversified culture. The baroque towns of the Val di Noto, on the south-eastern part of the island, are worth a visit. To this precious area belong eight pearls, among which are the famous towns of Modica, Ragusa-Ibla and Noto. These baroque towns have been added in the Unesco's list in 2002. Close to these cities are also other important world heritage sites: Syracuse with its baroque historical centre and the Necropolis of Pantalica.

In this area PureItaly offers the beautiful country house Villa Spiga with private swimming pool. Surrounded by a large, luxuriant garden, amongst typical fields of grain, carob plants, ancient olive and almond trees, this dwelling is located at the heart of baroque Sicily and not far from Noto. From the estate can be easily reached many acclaimed sightseeing attractions.

On the other side of the island, on the north-western coast PureItaly offers the luxurious Villa Trapani with private swimming pool, located in the vicinity of the town of the same name. This villa is surrounded by greenery and outstanding scenery: behind it stands the Erice mountain, in front of it the salt pans, the sea and the Egadi islands. Only a few kilometres away are Trapani's historical centre, the medieval village of Erice and the imposing temple of Segesta. Whereas on the route to Marsala, can be visited the charming salt pans with their windmills and the Stagnone reserve.
