Acquavella

Overview

Discovering the Cilento

The name comes from the springs from which the Basilian monks of the East drew their water. Today, Acquavella is the perfect place for holidaymakers seeking peace, quiet and a slow pace of life, surrounded by verdant nature and authentic flavours.

The village has two districts, Capo Casale and Pere Casale. At the point where the two intersect, you'll find the Church of St Michael Archangel, built in the year 1000 and adorned with new artworks and late 19th-century decorations as a tribute to the miraculous' sweat 'which appeared on the statue of the Virgin Mary. To remember this event, the statue is carried through the village streets on 2 July, once every five years.

Further out of the town, head to the coast and take a dip in the crystal-clear waters of Casal Velino Marina, which has free beaches but also beach clubs equipped with every comfort. But if you'd prefer a more active outdoor holiday, jump on a mountain bike and explore the heart of the Cilento region. Keep pushing the pedals until you reach the archaeological site of Velia and the caves at Palinuro, or Pioppi and Acciaroli where you can enjoy lunch with a sea view.
