"An elegant villa with spacious surrounds, right by the sea : a unique location."
Cyrene is perfect for a large group of friends or family to holiday in
luxurious comfort in such an incredible spot in Punta Licosa. The uniqueness of
this location is not to be underestimated. A gatehouse marks the entrance into
the estate at Punta Licosa. Exclusive
and private, very few villas have been allowed within its six kilometres, which
has been owned by this noble family for over 400 years. 4km or so down the
private driveway brings you to the sea and this beautiful villa. Just a stone’s throw from the water’s edge,
with its very own stretch of the Cilento marine reserve, the luxury Villa
Cyrene nestles amongst Mediterranean pines, alongside the ancient ruins of a
Roman fort, a castello by the sea and the Belmonte family chapel. Offshore and
close by lies the tiny island of Licosa, with its picturesque lighthouse.
The villa can accommodate up to 14 guests in 7 bedrooms; 4 double bedrooms, all ensuite, on the ground floor and a further 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on the first floor which are accessed via an external staircase. All rooms can be arranged as double or twin for maximum flexibility. There is a drawing room on each floor, and several areas in which to eat, both indoors and out, offering guests great versatility. All the French windows on the groundfloor are furnished with sliding inner doors against mosquitos.
The luxurious Villa Cyrene is an imposing, traditional stone house, which was a former hunting lodge. Set in its own extensive grounds, there seems to be endless space around this glorious villa. Perfect for outdoor living, its fabulous terraces, with cushioned seating, rattan comfy chairs and dining areas, stretch along the back of the villa and is a great spot to catch up with friends and family and spend quality time in total tranquillity. Glimpses of the sea can be seen through pines and from the garden; which blossoms with perfumed jasmine, honeysuckle, bougainvillea and other shrubs. A separate, palm-covered gazebo in the garden of Villa Cyrene provides a wonderful shaded “outdoor living room” – an idyllic place to relax and read a book or enjoy a glass of wine, or a cocktail or two. Just sink into the rattan sofas and chairs, take in the spectacular sea views and listen out for the melodic tune of the lighthouse siren!
Through the lovely gardens with their palm trees, the freshwater pool is close by, with its own changing room, including shower and WC. From the pool-side, there is direct access to an elegant sun-deck, leading down to the sea-shore and the crystal clear waters of the marine reserve.
