FROM NAPLES AIRPORT
Even if you are arriving from another area the last section will help you to find us once you are on the outskirts of the village.
Drive out of the airport, a very short drive from the car-hire parking lots, and approximately 300/400 metres. Turn right at the junction on to a secondary road and, keeping right, follow all green signs for AUTOSTRADA (motorway) paying special attention not to go down the underpass, in effect making a U-turn. Follow the green sign for ROMA. Do NOT take the first exit for Salerno A30. Take the A16 to SALERNO. After the first motorway toll, take the exit to SALERNO. Follow the signs for Salerno until you join up with the A3 MOTORWAY, direction REGGIO C.
Stop at the tollbooths to pay the motorway toll, approximately Euro 2,00 – depending on the size of the vehicle (it is advisable to have a small denomination note ready if you have no coins).
Stay on this motorway for approximately 40 minutes, and continue on duel carriageway until arriving at Salerno (bypassing Salerno) for approximately another 20 kms. Taking the exit for EBOLI. At the T junction turn right and follow signs for the main road SS18, signed PAESTUM and AGROPOLI.. After a series of small roundabouts, you will reach the main road, where at the large roundabout you turn left on to the SS18.
Bypassing PAESTUM on the right after approximately 30 minutes and then bypassing AGROPOLI, note the Railway station which runs parallel to the main road. Take the slip road signed AGROPOLI SUD (South) which leads to the SS267 (secondary road). At the bottom of the slip road, keep right, and at the junction ahead turn left, signed S.MARIA DI CASTELLABATE.
Follow a winding road for approximately 15 minutes, when you will arrive at the outskirts of Santa Maria di Castellabate. Go straight over the 3 mini roundabouts until you reach SAN MARCO. At the roundabout, there is a bar with a red awning called La Torretta, and on the right an old Tower. At this roundabout go straight over. You will pass a petrol station on your left. Continue on this road for a few minutes, and turn RIGHT, 100M after the EuroSpar supermarket, sign posted PUNTA LICOSA on a brown metal sign.
Continue on this winding road, until you pass through the village of Ogliastro. At the far end of this road when you can go no further you reach the gates of the Licosa Estate and the guards.
The guards, will have been notified of your arrival and will give you the electronic ‘beeper’ to open the gate to the Villa’s gate. Continue on this single track road for approximately 4.5KM until you see a pair of electric gates straight in front of you.
