Villa Cheta Elite is an hotel in a refined art nouveau styled country seat in Maratea, not far from the centre of the town with a marvellous seascape.
One century ago Villa Cheta was the Marsicano’s residence, one of the noble families in Maratea; being received here was a great privilege, above all because of the magnificence and refinement of the meals prepared by the lady of the house. This tradition has always been kept alive by the family who decided to extend it to new guests, changing the country seat in an hotel. In 1982 the Aquadros liked so much Villa Cheta that they took over the management; they brought out its original structure and, combining modern furniture, the Aquadros created a small boutique hotel with the only wish to continue the tradition of refined hospitality.
Today you can see the extraordinary and original glass windows, the pink and cream coloured façade with floral ornaments and period furniture, which is in each room.
To keep the refined balance of Villa Cheta it’s structure has not been changed: the number of the rooms is moderate, as it was once, to give more intimacy to the guests. Each room is different from the others and it is decorated with precious cloths, lace and ancient mirrors; but from every one of them you can see the crystalline Tyrrhenian Sea or the beautiful garden with its hundred-year-old trees. The restaurant is the feather in the hotel’s cap and it offers a simple but very refined cookery, with particular attention to typical dishes and commodities of the area. The wine list is varied and Southern wines are very considered because of their international importance. The hotel is completely renewed and the warm hospitality is combined with an high level service and settings furnished in very good taste.
The hotel services include a restaurant with a delightful terrace, a cosy bar and a private parking. For more it takes few minutes from the hotel to the beach below and you can enjoy the fabulous sea which makes these places famous.
