Week in Contursi Terme
Salvatore was a great host. Despite not sharing a language he was really quick to reply to emails and the handover was very straightforward - as was handing back at the end. The house is lovely. It's spacious and well equipped. There are excellent views over the countryside and it's in a very tranquil setting. It goes without saying that a car is essential to anybody thinking of staying here. We visited all the usual sites, Pompeii and Vesuvius are a bit of a hike - but the closest beach is surprisingly close, and the start of the Amalfi coastline is also not far. It’s slightly outside the main tourist area but very accessible, and there are local attractions – for example the village of Quaglietta (castle), and the Ponte Tibertano at Laviano (dramatic bridge) were both highlights. Happy to recommend!

Really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful and immaculately clean villa with fabulous grounds and pool. Excellent WIFI and location. Salvatore was extremely helpful, looking forward to our next stay!
Wonderful holiday villa
This is a lovely villa in a wonderful location up in the hills near Contursi Terme. The property itself was great, a large well equipped kitchen, lovely big outdoor space to sit in, 3 showers and a huge pool. There are stunning views of the mountains from the property and there was nothing better than lying in the pool taking in the views. Because it is in the hills, there is often a lovely breeze when sitting outside in the hot sun. I think it is important to point out that Salvatore does not live in the property, he lives in a house on the same road, I don't think that was completely clear from the description. This means that you have total privacy but he is available if needed for any queries so a very good situation. No properties overlooking the back of the property at all where the pool, garden and seating area is so very private indeed. Salvatore is lovely and friendly but also very discreet. He comes round once a day in the morning to clean the pool but apart from that leaves you to enjoy the house in private. The wireless internet in the property is very good and very reliable which was a very pleasant surprise. We used the house as a base to visit Pompeii and Herculaneum and found it ideal. About an hour drive from each which suited us fine as we wanted somewhere nice and rural but within touching distance of various places. Only 40 mins to Salerno as well which was a nice place to visit. Would recommend getting the Travel Mar boat from Salerno to Amalfi which was only 8 Euros and was a stunning trip along the coast. Contursi Terme itself is a 10 minute drive away and is a very nice little town which has a nice vibe in the evenings, not too busy but busy enough to feel good to be there. All in all, it was a great property in a great location and I would definitely recommend it if you are visiting this stuning region of Italy. Thank you for having us Salavatore.
Beautiful house and grounds and a lovely host
Our family of 5 stayed here on the last week of June 2019.
We found this house to be a great holiday rental in the countryside about 2 mile from the lovely town of Contursi Terme with its small shops and supermarkets for your provisions.
We loved the large swimming pool in which we enjoyed many hours, especially our 8 year old. It was cleaned daily by the owner Salvatore and it became a refreshing escape from the heat of the sunny days.
The property grounds were gated and we felt very secure staying here. Great facilities included a full size floodlit tennis court with many tennis rackets and balls to use. We loved having a family knock about in the cooler evenings finished of with a welcome dip in the pool.
The outdoor bbq was also a good size and was used a lot for our evening meals.
Inside the house the kitchen was large and well equipped with everything you could need including a lot basic condiments, olive oil, vinegars etc.
The bedrooms were on the upper floor and were all good size with lots of clean bedding and also a numerous amount of clean towels for the bathrooms.
A good base to visit the beaches near Salerno, the ruins at Pompeii and further to the beautiful scenery on the Amalfi coast. Although driving the roads around that coast was an experience I wouldn't want to repeat.
We also enjoyed the short strolls down the lanes near the house taking in the local nature and wonderful views across to the picturesque mountain ranges.
Although we had an atrocious level of spoken Italian and Salvatore spoke little English, we got our messages across ok and managed to learn some new Italian phrases and words.
I have to say overall we enjoyed our experience at Salvatore's house and would love to come back again very soon.
A relaxing oasis
We had a lovely stay here in a great location. Very isolated and quiet at the end of a long steep track. Stunning views with superb outdoor facilities. Wonderful large pool and it’s own private floodlit tennis court. Very simple interior but we spent most of our time outside. We were able to visit a number of sites from here, including Pompeii, the caves of castelcivita and the amalfi coast. Our host Salvatore was very friendly and helpful, coming every day to clean the pool!
Relaxed stay in beautiful surroundings
The location of the Villa overlooking the mountains combined with a large well maintained pool and tennis courts was outstanding. Salvatore was a fabulous host cleaning the pool every day and even buying the ice creams on arrival.
