For more detailed information on Pisciotta, the markets, restaurants, bars and beaches visit the Pisciotta page.


As you enter from the shaded stairs of the village you arrive in the pleasantly appointed dining area. This is a delightful room in which to enjoy breakfast, a family meal or small drinks party with friends. A shuttered window overlooks the street below and has a deep windowsill – perfect to rest a bowl of lemons.

Your eyes follow through from the doorway, to your left you see the adjacent fabulously appointed cook’s kitchen and the view through the window to the sea and hillside. Straight ahead you see a central room with an artisan built stairway. There is a large bedroom to the left of this room and a kitchen scullery and large bathroom / laundry, radiating off to the right of the downstairs space. The stairs lead to the main bedroom with ensuite bathroom and balcony above.

You will find the kitchens and dining area to be well appointed with a considered selection of pots and pans, beautiful Italian cutlery, glass ware, bowls and dinner ware. A chair beside the kitchen window is a peaceful place to read, manage your correspondence or just relax and enjoy the view.

The house comfortably sleeps 5 people.The downstairs bedroom is arranged with twin / double bed. The balcony overlooks the sea and has deck chairs to enjoy the view.  There is a clothes line here. There is an additional single bed in the central room with the stair. Alternatively, there is space to accommodate this bed in either of the bedrooms. The upstairs bedroom is large with high vaulted ceilings and ancient chestnut beams. The red and grey tiled flooring is original. Iranian and Italian bedding, contribute to the peaceful feel of the bedrooms. The balcony doors off both bedrooms open onto views across the sea and to the countryside.

Both the ensuite bathroom and main bathroom are comfortable and of good size, each featuring a large walk in shower, ceramic basins, bidets and toilet. A washing machine is installed in the large downstairs bathroom.

The stair is unprotected but has a rail against the wall. For this reason, this house is not suitable for young children to visit or stay.

There is a scullery to the left of the central room with the stairs. This is cool enough for the storage of food wine and water and provides additional space for the preparation of fruit and vegetables over the large ceramic basin and bench area.

We hope that you will find that a holiday in Casa San Marko allows you to enjoy the very best of a traditional Italian village experience.

House Rules and Other Things to Note

House Rules

It is a privilege to live in the historical centre of such an untouched village as Pisciotta. Other than in Ferragosto when there are many visitors in the village, the streets are extremely quiet. You never hear a television, other people’s music, raised voices or even children crying. We ask our guests to respect this tranquility and choose to come, partake and share in this wonderful experience. Please do not disturb our neighbours. This is their home.

Other Things to Note

Rubbish collection and recycling is taken extremely seriously throughout Italy and especially in Pisciotta. Information about this is detailed in your guest information package. Failure to comply will mean that your rubbish will not be collected, the cats may get into bags incorrectly sorted and left out and you will be entirely at the mercy of the local signore! Good luck with that!
