Description

High above the Mediterranean Sea stands Capo Vaticano, a majestic granite cape known for its beauty
In ancient times legend has it that Manto, a prophetess, worked the oracle on a rock off the cape, exactly in front of our property. It is because of its unique position and beauty that you enjoy breathtaking views of the Aeolian Islands with the volcano Stromboli puffing away. On calm days the sea offers an incredible color palette, changing from blue to green to turquoise to violet

In 2004 the French Guide “Editions Grand Voyageurs” ranked Capo Vaticano as one of the three most beautiful Italian beaches among the 100 most beautiful in the world
You may access the beach below by a private stairway carved into the granite. Several other beaches are just minutes away by car. There you may also rent a boat to explore the coast and enjoy diving, sailing and fishing

Just a few minutes away by car there is the Capo Vaticano Resort Thalasso and SPA. A beach front property that offers massages, thalasso therapy, sauna, hamam and a heated sea water pool with a stone walk in the water

Shops, restaurant and “pizzerie” are only minutes away by foot or by car

Secluded in the vegetation lies the one bedroom cottage which has a kitchen, a livingroom and a porch where you can relax or dine and enjoy beautiful sunsets. Next to the cottage there is the "bocce" field. In total privacy you forget the rest of the world and enjoy nature at its best
The queen bed can be separated into two twin beds

My father, the world renowned author Giuseppe Berto, purchased the property in 1956
He lived here for long periods of time
A relentless promoter of the beauty, the civilization and the rural architecture of the Italian South he preserved the cape from the intrusion of modern development and the explosion of cement that has altered great extents of the Italian coast

My family and I spend the summer in Capo Vaticano. We are available to answer your requests or needs, weather you are looking for a good local restaurant or an exciting fishing trip. My husband, Phillip, and I have been in the restaurant business for almost 30 years. We serve dinner three times a week, cooking local and traditionally inspired cuisine. We also can provide picnic baskets for a day at the beach or else. Cooking lessons are available

Why Capo Vaticano?
"As soon as I saw it, I knew that the land, from where you could see magical islands, was my second home, and hence I came to live there. I am on a cliff high above the sea; it is a truly breathtaking view. During the day, as I look at rocks and coves one hundred meter underneath me, the crystalline sea becoming deeper and deeper, I know that I am in one of the most beautiful places on earth". Giuseppe Berto

This cottage is one of eight private cottages on the property. Please feel free to inquire about them
