ITALY! Part 2
Our Apartment....steps from the pool (and WI-FI Connection!) and with a view below to the Village of Santa Maria Di Castellebate, snuggled into the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Heaven!
Here is the pool area, and one of the many flights of stairs...going up, Up! Up!! and down, Down, Down; as "Domus Cilento" is built on the side of the mountain, with Bougainvillias spilling over rock walls, and Jasmine climbing up and over the fences, and Trees and lush green everywhere that you look.
The beautiful pool.
Nice to come to and cool off after a hot day of sight seeing. I hadn't realized till this trip, that it had been ages since I had actually swam in fresh water, and the Aegean where I live, is even more salty then the Oceans...I was astonished by how heavy my limbs felt! It was as if I had forgotten how to swim!
Here is a quiet, peaceful area, beyond the pool, in a kind of mini Olive Grove, where there are tables and chairs, some lounge chairs, Ping Pong for the kids, and a kind of Garden House, where Delores (owner) and Christina (helper) hold court for their fun and informative Cooking Classes, open to all guests.
