Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Lauro - Villa in Lauro, Naples region, Italy

Villa in Lauro, Naples region, Italy

Description:

A delightful residence of times past

So you`d like to go on a trip with your friends? And you're looking for a house with a garden and a pool? You want infinite space and privacy as well? You're looking for a house with great flair and authentic atmosphere? You want to walk to a village? The famous Campanian cities such as Naples and the ancient Pompei should be within easy reach? And, above all, excursions to the seaside and the scenic Amalfi coast should be possible too? Villa della Marchesa offers all of this and much more!

The imposing villa sits on a fenced property, in a dominant position just underneath a medieval castle, in the centre of the historical village of Lauro, 34 km from Naples. The location of the villa in the centre of Lauro allows easy day trips to many well-known destinations such as the city of Naples (34 km) and surroundings, the Vesuvio volcan (20 km), the Royal Palace of Caserta (31 km), the archeological sites of Pompei (30 km) and Herculaneum (38 km), the ancient Roman monuments of Santa Maria Capua Vetere (39 km), the Abbey of Sant`Angelo in Formis (42 km), or celebrated holiday resorts like Ischia, Capri, Positano, Amalfi.

The small town of Lauro (approx. 3500 inhabitants) has three cappuccino bars, a bank, a grocery shop, a small supermarket, a butcher, two pizzerias, two restaurants, and a few agritouristic restaurants just outside the town, a hairdresser (also available a hairdressing service at home), a chemistry and a post office. There is a fruit, vegetable and houseware market once a week.

Although a car is necessary in the region there are some public transports: a bus stop is at walking distance, and the bus will take you to the centre of Naples (approx. 4 times per day during July and August, approx. 10 times per day during other months/no bus service on Sundays). From there you get the ferry to the islands of Ischia and Capri. The most beautiful beaches can be found at the Amalfi coast which can be reached by car in less than one hour. Several beach resorts can be reached also by train: take the bus to Nola (11 km), and from there get the Circumvesuviana train with several stops at the Sorrento peninsula and the celebrated Costa Amalfitana. The Circumvesuviana train connects Nola also to the railway station of Naples. The train leaves every 30 minutes from Nola, and it takes 30 minutes to reach Naples. And last but not least from Salerno (which can easily be reached by highway from Nola), there are ferry boats connecting Salerno with Positano, Capri, Amalfi and more south with Agropoli.

The exceptionally big house, whose halls echo the decadence of times past, was originally a convent transformed in the XVIII century into a residential country house and enlarged in the XIX century. If not rented to holiday guests it is the summer residence of the present owners, two countesses, belonging to a family past with an important role in the historic events of the Italian history. The interiour of Villa della Marchesa has been completely renovated down to the last detail while maintaining its original charm and character. Every stone was picked up, dusted off and put back where it belonged.

This is a place to start a voyage back to past epochs, into other worlds. You will find a shimmering century-old marble floor in the reception hall, ancient (handmade!) maiolica tile floors or traditional Neapolitan "cotto" in the living rooms, one spacious room leads to the next..., halls and drawings rooms follow each other..., fine round arches decorate the ceilings, vases decorate the marble fireplaces, Murrina glass shines above the long table in the dining room, paintings adorn many a room and a concert grand piano awaits gifted hands in the large drawing room... The villa is completely and consistently furnished with antiques, and relaxing in one of the many sofas you wish to drift back to the past...

You may know that comparable houses have, almost without exception, all been converted into residences or hotels, which are now presented in an anonymous style; the flair of the old palaces has often vanished in the course of modernisation. Unlike this trend, the property offered here has always been owned by the family, it is privately run and has retained its authentic atmosphere: Villa della Marchesa remains unchanged, from tip to toe the furnishing is original, a place where you can experience how life might have been in the 18th century. The villa and its gardens have been classified by the Italian Ministry of Fine Arts.

On nearly 1000 sqm floor area! Villa della Marchesa comfortably sleeps 10 people. On special request upon booking a 6th bedroom with en suite bathroom belonging to the owner might be opened at an extra charge. The large, panoramic terrace is equipped with two tables and chairs to seat 16 people. It is a wonderful place to enjoy al fresco dining in the morning or after sunset. The garden is not large but botanically interesting with palms, yuccas and lemon trees. On the rear of the villa there is a fountain shaped swimming pool with a small changing cubicle, an outdoor shower and a sun resting area with some sunloungers for the private use of the guests.

A housekeeper couple lives on the premises (separate living area with separate entrance) and is available to give you assistance in case of need. Here you´ll enjoy the friendly atmosphere of a private family residence with all the comforts which make it agreeable for a larger group to stay together. There are two Cappuccino bars just below the house (approx. 100 m distant) where you can have breakfast as the locals do.
