Pisciotta
B&B, holiday homes & holiday apartments

On the coastal road from Palinuro to Velia, the medieval village of Pisciotta sits picturesquely on a hill above the sea. In the narrow terraced alleys with impressive palazzi dating from the 16th century, you experience the unique atmosphere of real Italian village life.

Holidays at Pisciotta
Holiday homes, holiday apartments and B&B with sea view

In spite of its location close to the sea, Pisciotta has remained largely untouched by tourism. Centuries-old customs and tradition have been preserved and are kept alive.

The charming, medieval alleys of Pisciotta are off limits to cars, but sufficient parking is found around the center. Experience authentic village life while spending your holidays at one of the holiday accommodations we arrange for at Pisciotta!

Where you find what you need

In and around the typical village piazza, you find grocery stores and bars, a cash dispenser and the post office are also nearby.

A restaurant which can be recommended is Ristorante “I Tre Gufi” (“Three Little Owls”) in medieval Palazzo Marchesale, which is located at the highest point of Pisciotta. From the large terrace of the restaurant you have got a terrific view of the sea, which you should not miss out.

Beaches at Marina di Pisciotta
& Pisciotta-Caprioli

The beach of Marina di Pisciotta is at a walking distance of ca. 1 km along a footpath (partly steps); along the road it is about 3 km. Depending on the current, the lovely beach has either more sandy or more pebbly sections. Even in midsummer, everything runs at a rather leisurely pace there.

Towards the evening the atmosphere at Marina is simply charming: To the one side lies the picturesque village, to the other lies the hilly landscape of the Cilento. The green slopes seem like gentle giants tumbling lightly down towards the sea.

Instead of going to the beach of Marina di Pisciotta, you might, for a change, go to wide and sandy Saline beach 3 km off, near Pisciotta-Caprioli. This long stretch of beach, a good 5 km, is great not only for bathing and swimming in the sea and building sandcastles, but also for taking long walks towards Capo Palinuro.

Location

Colorful weekly market &
Pisciottan olive oil

At the weekly market, which takes place in the piazza on Wednesdays, the displays are often as colorful as the people pouring into Pisciotta from the neighboring villages. Countrywomen from the hinterland offer their goods for sale, at the “salumi e fromaggi” stall a chat is always included in the price, kitchen towels, aprons and the typical “caffettiere” are offered as well. After you have done your shopping, do stop for a “caffè” and a “cornetto” at one of the bars in the piazza and enjoy this unique atmosphere a little longer!

Pisciotta is not only characterized by its panoramic location. Decades-old olive groves have spread around the village and their tall plants have even been named for the village. The oil produced from the fruit of the trees counts among the highest quality extra vergine products in the world and has been DOP-labeled since 1998.
