Casale Staiano is a countryside farmhouse with plenty of charm and character. It lies just outside the popular small town of Sant’Agata sui due Golfi.
The farmhouse is surrounded by lovely communal gardens, filled with olive trees and pots of brightly coloured flowers. There are plenty of sunny terraces and quiet shady spots in which to while away a lazy afternoon.
You cannot help but relax when you see the view, across the green hillsides and rooftops, down to the Bay of Naples and the Island of Capri.
With a long history as a family home, Casale Staiano has now been fully renovated and updated. The owners live in part of the estate and are on hand to answer any questions and offer advice if needed.
The farmhouse has been sympathetically modernised, with air conditioning and an internet Wifi signal throughout.
The décor is clean and simple, with tiled flooring and white walls. You can see evidence of the farmhouse’s history in the thick cool walls, and wooden shuttered windows.
It is ideal for a group of friends, or a larger family to spread out and relax, as there are three separate living rooms, each with their own kitchenette.
Each kitchenette has white contemporary units and all the equipment you will need for a relaxing stay; including a gas hob and oven, fridge freezer, microwave, kettle, toaster and coffee maker.
There is also laundry room, with a washing machine, iron and ironing board.
The bedrooms and bathrooms
