The Borgo Le Caselle lies on the south-western slope of the Monte Coccuzzo (1387 mt) in a tiny hamlet belonging to the village of Tortorella in the hinterland of the gulf, some 20 kilometres away. Situated on the southern edge of the Cilento and Vallo di Diano National Park (Unesco), the area (part of Campania) borders on the Basilicata.
From the terraces of the Borgo in extremely good weather you may be able to catch a glimpse of Stromboli vulcano. Lovely sunsets and starr-studded nights can be observed particularly in spring and autumn.
Borgo Le Caselle consists of two houses, offering holiday accommodation in two entirely
separate units: The “Casa Sottana” accommodating 4-6 people on 110 sq.mtrs
and the “Casa Soprana” for up to 6 people on 120 sq.mtrs.
The houses sit on terraced hillside land, with lawn, vegetable garden and holm oak woodland.
Each holiday home has its own entrance and terraces affording panoramic views across an undulating landscape all the way to the Gulf and the sea in the distance.
Each holiday unit has central heating supplied by a wood burning oven or fire. In summer, hot water is provided by solar energy and gas.
The pretty village of Tortorella (with groceries, butcher, bar and post-office) lies 6 km from the Borgo, with the distance to the coast and the small coastal town of Sapri (IC railway station) of about 15 km, or 25 minutes by car.
Tortorella (582 mtrs above sea level) sits on a plateau falling away to the coast, on slopes of olive groves and woodlands. To the west, the plateau is bordered by the deep ravine of the Bussentino stream.
