La Casa di Ester description

"La Casa di Ester" is located in the Cilento National Park in the small city “Vallo della Lucania”, at 18 km from the sea, at the foot of Mount Gelbison, at the border of a wonderful woody area. The property originates from the restoration of the preexisting agricultural area at the border of the proprietors residence . It has been carefully restored as an “holiday house” that maintains full autonomy and privacy from the original proprietary building. It covers an area of about 250 m² on three levels, with the “night area” at the upper floors. It includes a parking area for cars, a garden of 2.200 m² and a swimming pool in reinforced concrete, all for the exclusive use by guests. "La Casa di Ester" is an old family home decorated with furniture that has been owned by the family for years and design pieces carefully collected over the years. The house has also a rich library with English and Italian books, some of which are collectors pieces. The ancient stone restored by local expert stone masons, the wooden ceilings with exposed beams, the 1700’s terracotta floors and the introduction of modern materials such as iron, cast iron and glass mosaics, render this house an original and exclusive place. The new structures incorporated in the house and gardens have been designed by talented architects and built by local skilled craftsmen, and they fit perfectly into the original structure. It is this combination of ancient and modern, tradition and design that distinguishes this house from others. The property has two separate entrances on the back of the house that lead to the old town through a stone passage covered with a wooden ceiling dating from the late 1700s. The front façade with its entrance opens onto the garden of 2.200 m² with a lawn and olive trees, a pergola for outdoor dining, and a porch with a large covered living-dining area. The swimming pool measuring 5 x 15 meters is equipped with every comfort, the water is purified with iodized salt. A small waterfall falls from a rock into a small pond filled with water lilies and gladdens with its pleasant murmur. The view from both the house and garden is magnificent – the wide landscape going from west to east encompasses Mount Gelbison, the medieval town of Novi Velia, the broad valley reaching down to the sea, and the mountain range with its beautiful sunsets. "La Casa di Ester" is located in the Cilento National Park, a World Heritage Site with the archaeological sites of Paestum, Velia and the Certosa of Padula. It is located in an ancient village, “Angellara” that lies at the foot of Mount Gelbison, 1 km from “Vallo della Lucania” which is a lively city for business with all the facilities including a general hospital with an emergency organization. The possible excursions are countless: Paestum,Velia, Padula, Camerota, Palinuro, Castellabate, Mount Gelbison, Mount Cervati, Old Roscigno, the Castelcivita Caves, Pompei, Herculaneum, Amalfi, etc. There is also a wide variety of food and wine typical of the Cilento cuisine with its “mediterranean diet”. The family atmosphere, the warm welcome, the presence of ancient and modern, the uniqueness of the furniture, the splendour of the landscape, the tourist resources and gastronomic opportunities in the area make a stay in “La Casa di Ester” an unforgettable experience.
