Napoli villa description
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 worth seeing for their history and art should be within easy reach? And, above all, an excursion to the seaside and the scenic Amalfi coast should be possible too? Villa della Marchesa offers you all of this and much more.
The interior 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. The original furniture was restored. The villa and its garden are classified by the Italian Ministry of Fine Arts. It sleeps 10 people (5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms).
Ground floor: a marble floored reception hall is the first thing you see when stepping into the villa. There are two large drawing rooms, a small private chapel, a large fully-equipped old country style kitchen (with dishwasher) plus three powder rooms (with WC, washbasin, bidet), a laundry with washing and drying machine.
First floor: there are two living rooms, a music room, a formal dining room, a library and five double bedrooms with writing desk by the window and each one with bathroom (four of which en suite, two with bathtub and three with shower), a fully equipped kitchen (with dishwasher), a powder room and a large panoramic terrace. The 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: at the rear of the villa it has a swimming pool in the shape of a fountain, a small changing cubicle, an outdoor shower and a sun resting area with some sun loungers, tables and chairs for the exclusive use of guests.
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 modernization. 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 (on nearly 1000 sqm floor area!). The furnishing is original, a place where you can experience how life might have been in the 18th century.
Here you'll enjoy the friendly atmosphere of a private family residence and all the comforts which make it agreeable for a larger group to stay together in one house. The villa is not only equipped well (central heating on the first floor, in addition to several marble fireplaces; telephone, fax facilities, TV sets with satellite, microwave oven, elevator, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, ironing area), but is has staff for work in the house and garden: a local couple (living on the ground floor in a separate apartment) can provide domestic services such as cooking, room cleaning, washing, ironing, transportation, etc. on request at additional costs. Although there are two Cappuccino bars just below the house (approx. 100 m distant) where you can have breakfast as the locals do.
What to do in the region?
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 archaeological 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. In the proximity of Lauro, other less known or recently discovered sites can attract the specific cultural interest of our guests, such as the Romanic Churches of Cimitile (13 km), the Roman amphitheater, tombs and the medieval castle in Avella (15 km), the longobardic frescos in Pernosano (3 km), not to mention the numerous churches and monasteries of the area.
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 housewares market once a week.

"An excellent experience" The villa is absolutely breathtaking... we just wanted to stay "at home" so we could savour it. Our welcome by the owner was warm and we felt special that she had come all the way from Rome for it. The attention and care by the live-in staff was excellent. The food prepared for us was sublime. It's a wow!
