Overview of our manor & the apartments
Let your eyes wander...
The manor A´Crápa Mangia is located on a hill, which overlooks the bay of Santa Maria di Castellabate, and the bay of Salerno with a view of the Amalfi coast. It is even possible to see Capri and Ischia on a clear day. You will witness unforgettable sunsets nearly every day of your stay.
Translating A' Cràpa Mangia from the Cilento dialect means “the goat is eating”. Having a goat in the past meant that the people who owned one lived in prosperity, and if the goat was eating everybody else was fine, too. This is the reason why the people from Cilento loved greeting other people with the question “Is the goat eating?” – “The goat is eating”.
A' Cràpa Mangia – everything is fine!
