The Villa Barabara apartments are located in a tiny complex of three small three-story buildings, which have been built on the edge of a sandy beach, and that have direct access to the sea and to a reserved tract of beach.
The three villas have the external walls tiled with stones and they have been built just a few meters from the sea and from the sand beach.
The three buildings are inside a fenced area that covers a sloping tract of coast located between the road and the sea. They are almost sheer above the beach and the sea.
From every point of the complex and from the terraces of the villas you will have a very close view of the sea, of the arch made by the golden beach below, and of the bay of Santa Maria di Castellabate . The view is charming from sunrise to sunset, and the sunsets on the sea are particularly suggestive.
From June to September you will be able to enjoy a beach service that includes the use of the equipped reserved beach with beach umbrella, deck chairs and sun lounges. In the summer months bars and restaurants on the beach are open. In the other months of the year you will still be able to access the beach at no charge.
This beach earns year after year the Blue Flag award of the European Union for the clarity of the sea water.
With a short stroll along the beach you will be able to walk to the center of Santa Maria di Castellabate. There you will find a pedestrian precinct and a wide choice of cafes, restaurants and shops.
The complex is equipped with a reception where a caretaker is available to provide information and to answer questions.
From the property you will have a direct access to the sea and to a public sandy beach. You will reach it from Villa Barbara going down approximately 30 stairway steps.

We have been here before, and knew beforhand that the beach is excellent.
The apartment are rather plain, but the location more than makes up for it. In general very clean and orderly. Service is friendly. A great bonus is the in-house lunch cafe with excellent home made food. The small town of Santa Maria is very laid back and friendly.
"Incredible relaxing experience in Santa Maria di Castellabate"
Left on 06/30/2009 for a stay in June 2008 | Dorothy SealReviewed Jun 30, 2009Stayed Jun 2008
Our family has visited Santa Maria di Castellabate and Villa Barbara three times and each time we love it more! Summer In Italy is a fabulous company to deal with. Attention to detail and
communication with us was outstanding.
Villa Barbara is a lovely apartment with beautiful views of Capri and the Amalfi Coast. Villa Barbara met all of our expectations and Ms. Anna the person who sees to your every need is outstanding. Her recommendations of activities is very much appreciated. Her knowledge of the area helps in making sure you see all you need to in order to make your holiday memorable.
We hope to return for a fourth time very soon! We now consider Santa Maria di Castellabate and Villa Barbara a second home. We consider Summer in Italy our friends. Grazie mille. Dorothy Seal
"Good apartments in great location beside nice unspoilt coastal t"
Left on 06/17/2009 for a stay in May 2008 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Jun 17, 2009Stayed May 2008
The Villa Barbara apartments are very well located right on a beautiful sandy beach with great sunsets and views across to the distant Amalfi Coast.
The apartments are a very short walk from Santa Maria di Castellabate - an unspoilt local town with a lovely traditional feel to it that has not been over-developed by tourism. It has a good selection of shops and services although some of the restaurants were not fully geared up for the summer season when we visited at the beginning of May.
The best part of our holiday however was spent on the beach and in the beautifully clear water right in front of the apartment.
Villa Barbara A has a fantastic terrace that caught the sun all day long.
The other rooms were fine although the kitchen was quite small and located in the main living room.
Anna Rita, the caretaker, was very helpful to us and was happy to translate for us when we had an issue with the hire car company.
All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.
Summer in Italy were a pleasure to deal with and responded very promptly to any questions we had. This was our second time to use the company and we found them to be very efficient and helpful. We have recommended Summer In Italy to many of our friends and we will use them again in the future.
