Hotel Villa Cheta is an elegant Art Nouveau boutique hotel on the beach in Acquafredda Di Maratea, Basilicata with top notch service and food. We here at Long Travel love the country house feel, the food & the stunning views.

A fine and gracious old villa, in a stunning location, overlooking the sea, the fabulous boutique hotel Villa Cheta is a real favourite of ours here at Long Travel. The food is as good as you’ll find in Basilicata or Italy for that matter. The delicate flavours and tantalising dishes, and the list of Italian wines, are a dream at the unique hotel Villa Cheta. The exceptional staff offers smiling charm, gentility and impeccable service. The atmosphere is relaxing and intimate making it a great choice for a romantic break or a honeymoon even.

About 1km from the village of Acquafredda di Maratea, overlooking the coast, the boutique beach hotel Villa Cheta has been awarded its four stars for being one of those “special places”, with a combination of ingredients not easy to find elsewhere – style; wonderful location; attentive and personal service; elegant relaxing surroundings and sunny terraces; and last, but not least, superb food and wine. The hotel Villa Cheta has them all!

With a real eye for period and a knack for introducing modern facilities into a character property, each bedroom at the beautiful hotel Villa Cheta is unique, but all have style, with antique furnishings, clean, crisp fabrics and lovely bathrooms. This flair continues in public areas, where you will feel as if you are in the home of a noble family, surrounded by bits and pieces that are precious to them. It all feels very personal, comfortable, relaxing and in keeping.

We at Long Travel love the small, pebbly beach below the hotel Villa Cheta in Basilicata. Worth walking the quite steep, stepped path, (approx 195 stairs) to the inviting sea, the walk back up keeps you fit and gives you a good appetite! In high season, quench your thirst at the small bar or chicken out and take the free shuttle to some of the nearby beaches near the boutique hotel Villa Cheta.

“The terraces at Villa Cheta were absolutely wonderful and the reception and bar staff were delightful”. Michael & Josephine, London

“I would just like to say we have had an amazing week at the Villa Cheta. The hotel and the decor first class, the staff so friendly and helpful. What can I say about the food – just wished we had paid for half-board as we finished up eating there most evenings. Thank you again for helping me choose such a wonderful place.” Stuart & Lynda, Newark

Amanda Morrison wrote for Red Magazine, “Like a giant pink wedding cake, Villa Cheta presides over a cliff, delivering sunsets good enough for a Hollywood movie. Sunny terraces are the perfect spot for relaxed reading, and there’s a small pebbly beach immediately below the hotel. It also has a divine restaurant. “

“Just a quick line to say thank you for another lovely holiday. We very much enjoyed our few days in the Villa Cheta – as you promised, great setting and delightful staff – we hope to return. ” Derrick, Camberley

I don’t think I’ve ever ticked all the excellent boxes on a questionnaire before. We didn’t think that the Hotel Villa Cheta could possibly be as nice as your brochure suggested – but it was. The building is lovely; the staff delightful; the position amazing. As for the food – I’m running out of superlatives, but it was absolutely delicious. ” Helen & Peter, Leicester

“We had a great time in Basilicata. The staff at Hotel Villa Cheta were fantastic and we really enjoyed the food. We ate some wonderful desserts, so were almost grateful for the 195 steps down to the beach! The region was fascinating, the coastline is so dramatic and the Christ figure was more impressive than we had imagined it would be. ” Heather, Newcastle-Under-Lyme
