The accommodation was recently fully refurbished, which included a new kitchen, bathroom
and antique Italian furniture. It is self catering with a kitchen, bedroom leading
out on to a balcony with sea and mountain views, wet room with a shower, toilet and
basin. Although it is self catering you can also eat out relatively cheaply. If you

Within Santa Marina there are 3 bars where you can buy your typical Italian breakfast
of cornetti (pastry with a selection of fillings) and coffee. There is a gastropub/pizzeria
(Ristopub Harley Cafe) open 2 evenings per week for pizza and every day except Sunday
for light bites and a restaurant (La Baita) open every evening except Tuesdays. There
are a couple of shops that sell fresh prosciutto (ham), cheese (including the famous
buffalo mozzarella) and bread. Also spread through Santa Marina are a general store,
butchers, pharmacy and post office. Most of your needs should be catered for, because
these are the shops that the locals use. The nearest supermarket is in Policastro
Hello we are John & Toni and we have a holiday home, with sea and mountain views,
in a typical mountain hamlet called Santa Marina in Southern Italy.
Santa Marina is about 5 miles inland from the coastal medieval town of Policastro
Bussentino. Ideal if you already love Italy, or if you would like to see the real
Italy for the first time.
