The space

Nice and peacefull house built in wood and stones in an oaks wood.
Rent a comfortable country house completely surrounded by greenery and surrounded by ancient oaks, a vivid nature, a stream of wild animals and in complete tranquility. There is also a big aviary with 3 peacocks close by and a small stone pool with fish.
The house consists of ;
- a kitchen / living room with fireplace, sofa bed, refrigerator, gas stove, microwave, hot and cold running water.
- a bedroom with TV, wardrobe,also a wooden heater for the winter.
- a bathroom with shower and bidet.
-an outdoor large terrace.
there will be a barbeque and hammock where you can relax reading books you will find in the house in italian,english,german,french,chinese,dutch language,plus a useful guide (italian and english)of The Cilento and Vallo di Diano park.
You can buy seasonal vegetable and eggs from local farmer.

Located in the National Park of Cilento and Vallo di Diano, the structure is preferable for tourists arriving by car because we are in open countryside equidistant from San Giovanni Piro, a mountain town, and Scario seaside town. The first houses nearby are located approximately 200 meters far from us.
We have also one of most beautiful seas and the beautiful golden beaches (even for naturists) like Palinuro and Maratea and we're only 15 miles from the historic town of Sapri.

The house is gorgeous, full of character and so peaceful. Giovanni was very helpful, answering questions within minutes, and it is a shame we have not met in person. It also feels like it could be perfect for a winter retreat, maybe next time!

Secluded, peaceful location off the main tourist trail (we visited in June and it was very quiet). The cottage is exactly how I had imagined - rustic, quirky and full of little surprises; such as discovering fresh peaches and apricots in the garden. Take full advantage of the sig…

Giovanni & cousin Gabriella are perfect hosts. Honest and hard working to make our experience special!! The house is "perfetto"! Beautiful peaceful mountainous countryside, open fire by night to cook amazing food on, all amenities were great! Scario is a hidden gem of Italy, not …

Our host had arranged for the lovely housekeeper to meet us at the nearest village and drive up to the hut which is far away into the valley and quite hard to find. She showed us the wood to warm up the place with the fire place and the stove in the room which made it very cozy …

Response from Giovanni:
The little house is in a small valley surrounded by nature exactly 2 km far from Scario ( on the sea ),Never said in the site you will have sea view,even if from a side of my land you can clearly spot it.Never said that there will be breakfast even if I offered coffe and tea bags and some savoury and sweet snacks.Peacocks were not in a cage but protected by a covered fence ,(a sort of big aviary)from foxes. Only the male made noise because he is in love and only during this period. It is a natural sound like the creek and other birds or dogs or cats. Maybe you saw another house and by mistake booked mine.Sorry for that.I would take in consideration to put another knife even if I kept asking you to let me know if there was anything else you needed.

I highly recommend Giovanni's place, just as I would do for mine. If you're looking for calm, nature, sweetness, just get there with your eyes closed. Keep a day or two to enjoy the house but don't miss Capo di Palinuro and Maratea, when you don't take the Taxi Boat on Scario's …

Very lovely little house with a beautiful view over garden and mountain. The house is a bit remote. It is much better than the pictures. It has everything you need inside. We had a wonderful time!

We had a really nice stay at Giovanni's place. If you're into nature and a little remote places, you'll enjoy it a lot. There is nothing to add to the description and the other recommendations. Upon arriving at home we really missed the sound of the river. The only thing you mig…
