Maybe it’s something in the water. The deep blue, crystal-clear water. This tiny seaside town on the Cilento Coast , known for its quaint buildings and natural Mediterranean beauty, is also famous for the number of its citizens reportedly living to over 100 years old.
While Acciaroli holidays might not hold the key to such longevity, it’s hard to deny the benefits of the local combination of sand, sea, sunshine and sights. The town’s main attractions include peaceful beaches, a picturesque harbour, charming cobbled streets and plenty of beautiful and peaceful countryside to explore in the hills above the town. Dine like a local, enjoying fresh regional produce and fragrant rosemary-infused dishes that feel as nourishing as they taste delicious. A calming contrast to the more lively parts of the Amalfi Coast – during holidays to Acciaroli you’ll find yourself in an old-world oasis of rest and relaxation.
