Mari Blu


Mari Blu is perched on the highest point of Villammare almost directly above the beach. Overlooking the horizon from the pool terrace it seems you could literally fly over the sea.

As you enter the front gate you are welcomed with magnificent views of the Italian coast.

Set above the lively town of Villammare, Villa Le Cannicelle is the perfect holiday place to sunbathe and take in the Mediterranean Sea. Here you can experience the Italian coast at its finest - amidst charming gardens, endless terraces, sea views and an infinity swimming pool.


Mari Blu is a modern three-storey villa built in a traditional style, set 56 mt. above sea level with stunning views stretching for miles along the Italian coast, stone arches frame glimpses of century-old olive trees and sea views.

The villa is elegantly furnished in a contemporary style and each level is self-contained making it ideal for larger groups.

Outside there is ample space for everyone to come together and enjoy the stunning sea views from one of the many terraces, or lounge in the shade - Soak up the sun around the pool or enjoy a meal on the rustic "taverna" dining terrace.

The entire accommodation has light, bright and airy atmospheres and is furnished in original and elegant taste. It is the ideal option for family and friends holidays at the beach in Italy, offering a space to share holiday time with your loved ones as well as keeping your own privacy when needed.

Positioned on a hillside facing the sea, just 700 meters from "Santa Maria Le Piane" long sandy beach, the villa commands a spectacular, panoramic Mediterranean vista - views stretching down to the farthest mountains of the Calabria region on one side and as far as the Punta Infreschi and the wild coastal stretch bearing the same name between Scario and Marina di Camerota on the other side.

Two thirds of the estate is covered with lush woodland and cork oak, a plant typical of the environmental niche stretching along the coastline of the Bay of Policastro between S. Marina and Sapri. Surrounded by a big, enclosed garden, it is the perfect accommodation for families with children.

Mari Blu is extremely spacious and well equipped with many terraces and well-equipped outside spaces to relax, sipping a glass of wine, and soaking in the views before dining together on the wonderful covered taverna, with its traditional Italian style wood-fired pizza oven and barbecue. 

A little piece of paradise for families and friends wishing to escape their busy city lives and experiencing the authentic Italian "dolce vita" and a truly memorable villa holiday at the beach.

The marina of Villammare is less than 1 mile therefore is easy to get there walking but car is recommended because the last part of the road to the villa is steep. 

Villammare is lively at summer and there are bars, chalets, and shops. It is not a place spoiled by massive tourism and you will find a friendly atmosphere all around and an authentic glimpse of Italy. Restaurants in the surroundings as well as "trattorie" and "pizzerie" offer very good fish, seafood and delicious local cuisine.

    We spent a week at Le Cannicelle in August 2018 for a family reunion and holiday. We were 5 adults and 5 children (aged 6 to 15). We had an amazing week at Le Cannicelle - one that we will remember forever!
    The Villa is a gorgeous 3 floor structure and we rented the entire villa. On the first floor (or ground) are 3 bedrooms (one facing the sea, and the other two facing inwards), a large living and dining space, 2 full bathrooms and a nice spacious kitchen. There are two doors that open up to a covered patio that looks over some lovely flowers and out down over the sea. There is also an outdoor dining area and then at a lower level a complete outdoor kitchen. The 2nd floor has a contained 1 bedroom unit with its own living room (with a sofa bed), kitchen, dining area and a bathroom - and the 3rd floor is also another independent bedroom unit (smaller than 2nd floor) but also with a small outdoor patio.
    The villa is luxurious and comes with a housekeeper who shows up every day from 9am to 1pm (except Thursdays). This is a huge help as it kept the villa clean and many chores done allowing us to spend more time with our families. From my earliest interactions with Marzio (the owner) I felt just incredibly comfortable in speaking to him. He is a genuinely caring person who goes out of his ways to ensure that his guests have an amazing time and he is always accessible (we had him on whatsapp). He went above and beyond to make the house comfortable and accessible for e

    The villa is wonderful. A fantastic location with sea views and private surrounds. Marzio our host made sure all our needs were fully met. Gardens pretty with apricot orchards set against blue sea vistas. The pool was hard to clamber out of. Perfect temperature (June) Equally the nearby sea was so clean and clear and delicious to swim in. Heavenly. Diversity of activities in this area. Cilento national park has stunning mountain scenery tumbling down to the sea. Hiking to waterfalls. Boat trips. One of the best family holidays we have ever had.

    This was an incredible place to vacation for my family. If you want to escape to the real Italy, away from the tourists but experience the best of the Italian coast - this is a gem! The pictures do no justice to this place. The villa is full of all the luxuries we needed. The bedrooms were all very large with good design and great amenities. The bathrooms were well stocked and extremely clean - as was the whole houses immaculate. The kitchen was great and a fun place to prepare food. The outdoor kitchen was also a real treasure at night for long dinners with our large group. There are many eating areas and balconies with well appointed seating for morning coffees, afternoon reading and evening cocktails. Lots of space to get some quiet time. Our family enjoyed so much time at the pool. It’s huge and has great steps leading into if you have little ones. There was a box full of pool toys too which was brilliant for our group. There was also a great slide and swing set in the garden - it is an endless activity center for a family. The villa is surrounded with lots of delicious fruit trees and everyday we picked lemons, plums, peaches as we played in the garden. It was magic. Perhaps the best part of the trip was our host Marzio and his team. He was incredible helping us plan activities before and during our stay (definitely recommend the boat trip and booking dinner at his local favorites). He shared with us his family wine - which tasted even better with the stories he
