Excellent! Very authentic and quiet place!
A great experience of living in an authentic Italian villa located in historical center of a rural area. Very beautiful place, very clean inside, surrounded by large garden with walnut and hazelnut trees, as well as hundreds years old pines and ash tree where you can hide and fire a barbecue. Private parking was great advantage. Highly recommended to anyone who is looking for an inspiring vacation in mountains. Donato and his son were very kind and helpful. Many thanks for their hospitality.
Villa Mimosa in Calvanico - great spot!
We stayed 6 nights in Calvanico at Villa Mimosa. This is a great spot for reaching Salerno, Amalfi Coast, Napoli, etc. It's out of the tourist areas up the side of the mountain about 1500 ft. It's a small town, so there are just a couple of places to get grocery items, coffee and breakfast, and a few restaurants, but that's the way we wanted it. Donato and Roberto(Donato's son) were fantastic to work with. Roberto contacted me via the VRBO app a few days before our arrival, send me good directions and he helped locate a bike shop in Salerno, where my son could rent a bike. Very helpful! He also had some very good information on taking a boat trip from Salerno up the Amalfi Coast, which has breathtaking views. The weather was near perfect with the a nice dry climate, plenty of sunshine and cool mornings and evenings. We also found a great hiking area just about 15 minutes further up the mountain where we hiked to Pizzo San Michele, about 5,000 ft above sea level with amazing views of the Amalfi Coast, Napoli, the Tyrrehnean Sea, etc. We stayed 1 month in Italy on our trip in Rome, Tuscany, Venice, Bergamo and Salerno area and this was my favorite place.
Perfetto the Second Time Around!
We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Villa Mimosa that this was actually our second visit. Lovely as remembered! Located in a quiet and picturesque hilltop village and near to some wonderful day trips. This is the real Italy! Highly recommended. Mille Grazie, Donato!
This was a lovely Villa, Difficult to find, but well worth the drive up to this property.
This was such a beautiful Villa. It is hidden away behind a wall and opens up to a wonderful villa and gardens.
Our family of 8 stayed there with plenty of room for our 4 grandchildren to roam. Roberto was very helpful in getting us to the property . It was is a high climb up to the Villa Mimosa. The home is beautiful, has very much character and everything was provided.
The sad thing for us was it rained 2 of the days, But we still were able to go exploring. We visited Pompeii. The little village had grocery stores and we had fun cooking our own meals many days. We would recommend this property to all.
Thank you for all your kindness Roberto and Donato.
A truly stunning property
Villa Mimosa is a very grand house with fabulous gardens shaded by magnificent three or four hundred year old trees. We 2 couples, each with 3 kids so 10 in all and there was more that enough room for all of us and for the kids to pair off, play hide and seek and explore. The village has a couple of bars, a great pizzeria as well as a good butcher and a few small grocery shops so everything you need. It's a lovely place to base yourselves to visit Paestum in the south, the Amalfitano coast and up to Herculanum, Pompey and Naples in the north.
As 2 families, with 9 people, this Villa had more than enough room for all of us. The kitchen was well equipped and the yard was enormous, perfect for the 5 kids! We used the home as a base for our day trips to Amalfi, Pompeii, Agropolis and Sorrento. The owner and his son were very friendly and helpful to us, we enjoyed the wine and the parting gift! This is a perfect location to escape the bustle of the crowds along the coast.
