Italian Holiday Accommodation – Casa Piccola Katie

You will find exceptional, affordable holiday accommodation right in the historical centre of  Pisciotta, at Casa Piccola Katie.  Casa Piccola Katie is a small, self contained house on Via Langeolotti.  It is a delightful nest for a couple enjoying a summer holiday in Pisciotta.  It is only 30 metres from Casa San Marko, which is also owned by Elizabeth.  Both houses can be rented together – comfortably accommodating 6 people.

In Casa Piccola Katie, the large comfortable bedroom is on the ground floor.  It has a large bed and plenty of storage space.

Upstairs there is a simple kitchen, with a gas stove, a refrigerator and a washing machine.  There is a table and chairs in front of the small balcony in the living area.  From the balcony you can see glimpses of the beautiful sea view.  The small bathroom is off the kitchen.  Breezes pass across the space from the balcony to the large kitchen window.  All windows and the balcony doors have screens and shutters.

Getting Around

You can only access the house by foot and some stairs.

There is only pedestrian access throughout the historical centre of the village.

Having to walk everywhere means automatically that you are living differently to how we live at home.  There is no need to have a car to visit Pisciotta but that said it is nice to have one to explore the beautiful surrounding beaches, wineries and restaurants.  Increasingly cyclists are visiting this area of Campania.

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!
