Just south of the Amalfi Coast lies the exclusive private estate of Licosa within the Cilento National Park. A short distance from the small fishing harbour of San Marco and close to the point named after the siren, Leucosia, lie the ancient ruins of a Roman fort, a seaside castello with family chapel and the uniquely private Villa Leucosia. The estate extends over six kilometres and is approached over land from the gatehouse at Ogliastro. The house can accommodate up to 14 guests in 7 double bedrooms, four of which are on the ground floor, each with an en suite shower room. The large drawing room is perfect for a big house party but just as comfortable for a smaller party looking for an attractive space in which to unwind. Less than a hundred metres from the Villa is a delightful freshwater pool in which to swim safely, sheltered from the sea breezes by a romantic Roman ruin.
There are plenty of walks with stunning views in all directions from the Villa - through the forest, towards the private island and lighthouse, beside the sea or up into the low hills to the charming village of San Marco. There is some wonderful snorkelling off the property in some of the clearest and cleanest water in the Mediterranean, a UNESCO protected marine park.


For those wishing to visit the local village of Ogliastro, the private estate road leads directly to the nearest café bar, great for teenagers looking for a little bit of independence. A local cook can be organised, and fresh vegetables will be used from the estate organic vegetable garden. To the left are sun dappled pine forests and to the right, vineyards, olive and carob trees covering the lower slopes of the hills.
A large wooden deck overlooking the sea provides the perfect place to sunbathe with loungers and umbrellas. If you look carefully between the shore and the island you can see the submerged ruins of a Roman village. For those who want a change of scenery, the small unspoilt fishing village of Santa Maria, 10 minutes away by car, has a choice of restaurants, pizzerias and ice-cream parlours. However, if you prefer to try a local pizza or spaghetti vongole you certainly won't be disappointed.
Guests can seek out the spectacular temples of Ancient Greece at Paestum, the wonders of Pompeii, and the magnificent twelfth century monastery at Padula.


The kitchen is large and very well equipped with a table suitable for eight if needed, although most guests prefer to eat al fresco on one of the Villa's many terraces.
Here you will also find banks, chemists, a variety of shops, wonderful delicatessens and a local colourful market at weekends. Magical Capri, Ischia, Naples and the towns of the Amalfi coast are all perfectly located for a day trip. Upstairs there is a further large sitting room (also with Sky TV) with views across the garden and through the pines to the sea and the little island beyond.
