Our Cilento Pictures

Zizzania e il Mandarino, our preferred accommodation choice in this area
If you are in need of a holiday that is well away from the crowds and to
discover a part of Italy that is virtually unchanged by tourism then
this part of the Cilento is hard to beat.
This is a region that
offers everything you could possibly wish for, and more, including
majestic mountains, azure seas with spectacular beaches, ancient fishing towns and medieval
hill-top villages, even the remains of an ancient Greek city.
Of course the food is exceptional too and the
locals are some of the friendliest people in all of Italy. It always
seems to me that the locals have not become jaded and tired of tourists
which is so often the case in many of the major tourist spots.
is a good example of a place where I never fail to get treated like an unwelcome
and unfashionable slug. I can promise you that this will never happen in
the Cilento, warmth and hospitality comes naturally to these folk and
you will always feel welcome - it doesn't matter to them where
you are from.
They seem to offer a warmer than usual
welcome if you are from the USA which is lovely to see and is probably because so many of the locals have family in the USA. Be warned though... if you happen to stay at the Zizzania e il Mandarino you will end up
feeling you have been adopted.
The Cilento is home to the world's best mozzarella - in their opinion and mine too.
