Land of Beauty and Tradition

A Holiday in Cilento: nature meets culture

The Villaggio degli Olivi is located in Palinuro, in the heart of a morphologically diverse region and rich of extraordinary beauty, starting with the cape, which is unique for its pentadactyl shape.

When you spend your holiday in Cilento you will be able to enjoy the allure of the landscape, characterized by cliffs over 50 meters high dropping straight into the pristine sea, by the distinctive species of birds that nest in between these cliffs and by the unique flora and plants like the Primrose of Palinuro.
The clear waters of the sea conceal another treasure of the region: the numerous natural caves that render Palinuto a paradise for scuba divers.

Your holiday in Cilento is where the magic of nature combines with the lure of a land rich in history and culture, deeply rooted in ancient times, bringing mythology to our own time: like the Leucosia Siren and the adventures of the brave Aeneas who landed on the beaches of Palinuro, the ruins of the Greek colonies of Elea and Paestum, the splendid Certosa di Padula (Padula Charterhouse), and the wonders of the National Park of Cilento, Vallo di Diano and Alburni, named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1998.

Spend your holiday in the Cilento region surrounded by natural and cultural beauty.
