Spring time get away
We made the villa our home for 2 months over March and April and it was perfect for our needs. The wood burning stove was great in the colder, rainy beginning of March and as soon as the sun came out and all the trees started blooming, we made full use of the garden and bbq. Our 2 year old really enjoyed running around outside and Michele was kind enough to let him use the toys that were downstairs. Michele was always very prompt to reply to messages and offer help above and beyond of what you normally receive.
The amalfi coast is a 30-40min drive away and we visited Cetara often and the beach in Vietri su mare too. The islands of procida and capri are also reachable from naples, which in itself is worth a few days wandering around. The farmers market in salerno was amazing and we visited every Saturday to do our vegetable shop (so fresh and half the price of the supermarket). Calvanico has its charm too and a walk up the steep hill to Capo Calvanico is worth the view (on a clear day you can see Ischia).
There are so many places to eat but our 2 local haunts were la vetta, around the corner with great pizza and friendly staff, and Nami in Fisciano (more great pizza, and a really cool bar)
I would highly recommend both the villa and the area for your trip!
A beautiful place to stay. Everything you need for a home from home holiday. Lovely private garden. Near to Pompei, Mount Vesuvius, Paestum and some long sandy beaches (all within 30-45 mins) If you like small, quiet villages with a little bar and excellent Pizza Restaurant then this is a place to recommend.
Our family of 6, two parents and 4 adult children, thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this villa apartment. It was very clean, the bedrooms were roomy, the view was lovely. The workmanship and furnishings were quality. We enjoy cooking and the small kitchen, which was the only inside common area, was very well equipped.
Michael, our host, was organized, easy to reach, available, helpful, and responded quickly to our texts & emails.
As this villa is in a mountainous village, we recommend arriving in the daylight as it was not easy to find in the dark! The village is small, but clean and accessible. An ATM machine was across the street and a great pizza restaurant was down the block.
A car is definitely needed. Calvanico is a good location for driving to Pompey, Vesuvius, Amalfi Coast and Salerno.
Our family enjoyed this villa apartment immensely. Highly recommended.
A Short Drive from Salerno
There was a big front yard with gated private parking. Michael was a great host and very responsive to all our needs. Even when one of us needed a cane, he brought one without our asking.
The house was large and clean.
The town of Calvanico was beautiful and the people there were very nice. There were stores a block from the house.
We would gladly stay there again.
Beuatiful and amazing, highly recommended
We very much enjoyed our stay in this beautiful house in the village of Calvanico. We were greeted warmly by the owner and given a detailed tour of the house and full instructions on how to operate the tv, lights fire etc. The house is furnished with a mix of traditional luxurous itallian furnature and a more modern kitchen but still with Italian design. The gardens are beautiful and are ideal to sit out in the summer with enough sun and shade provided by the villages traditional hazel nut trees. A car is essential and we found satnav was better to put Calvanico into the search than the street as this made the direction of approaching the house far easier. The owner had provided detailed instructions on how to get there and was very accommodating with the time we arrived in the evening and with our departure time early in the morning. Highly recommended.
Mille Grazie Michelle
