Laurito villa description
This unique property has recently been renovated to maintain the charm of a 13th century medieval village on the outside with the luxury of completely modern and an spacious and comfortable decor inside. We are offering rental of all or part of our vacation home to you and your party. The town folk are friendly. You will need a vehicle to enjoy this area. There is no constant bus service and taxis are expensive.
The property is located in the village of Laurito at about 475 meters above sea level. The closest airport is Naples. The drive is an easy one heading south on the SS18 toward Sapri. Exit Massicelle. The village is a tenth century, walled, farming village with groves of olives, vineyards, and almost any fruit and vegetable that you can imagine. We are seeking mature, professional renters who respect property, culture and the local residents of this special village.
Small villages in southern Italy are quaint but off the beaten track. The house has no internet inside. The local library is accessible as well as vistors can purchase an internet modem for about 35E to use while on vacation from any electrodomestici shop. The home does not have a phone but international roaming works perfect here.
There is no souvenir shopping here. There are 4 markets in town for food and an open air market on Fridays. Palinuro, the closest beach, is 9.8 miles away. We have crystal clear aquamarine colored water and are just below the Amalfi Coast. The same water and beaches for a 1/3 of the price. This rental is perfect for hikers and history enthusiasts that want to get away from the obvious destinations and relish in the unique and hidden parts of Italy. The area boasts several religious pilgrimages to higher elevations which offer hikers with a beautiful and challenging courses. Other courses include hikes to ancient ruins and excavations.
Gentle mountain breezes offer a relaxing alternative to a more coastal property. Laurito is all about relaxing, refreshing, and renewing the mind and spirit. Surrounding villages offer interesting hiking, walking, and historic sightseeing. Dining opportunities offer phenomenal local cuisine and wine at a fraction of the costs in larger cities. The town has three restaurants.
The local beaches are great for sun bathers and scuba or cave diving enthusiasts. You can boat, fish, kayak, swim, and snorkel. Take local excursions into the sea caves both above and underwater. The train station at Centola,Sapri,Vallo Scalo, Paulinuro for those guests who do not drive, services trips to Basilicata, Pestum, Pompeii, Napoli, Amalfi Coast Destinations, Roma, and Florence (Firenze).
We are a 4 hour drive from Rome, and about 1.5 hours from Naples. We are 45 km from Salerno south.

Numerous families have loved this property. One family found the garden completely unsuitable for their children due to the "RUBBLE" and overgrown garden. Please understand that Southern Italy is rugged natural beauty. Unattended children should not be allowed to walk on the edges of the village walls at the edges of the garden. There may be mulching items in the "garden" from time to time and there is a clothes line. This is a working village, a home, not a resort. ...moreless

Deck / Patio:
There is a patio in a working garden. THIS IS NOT A FLOWER GARDEN but a working garden in many seasons. IT is not a pristine area but rugged garden that overhangs the external medieval wall. It is split with neighbors. There is not grass - but mulches in the winter. The view up the mountain is lovely but this is not a manicured garden at a hotel. There are also seedling plots and a mulch container for food wastes as is a common practice in Southern farming areas....moreless

My family stayed at this villa in the village of Laurito. We are from Malta and found it to be extraordinary. The bedrooms are unique and the kitchen unbelievable, not to mention a 50 inch Plasma TV. There was plenty to do in the area from mountains to the seaside In 15 minutes.
