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.

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.

Incredible Villa in Picturesque Authentic Italian Hill Town close to Beaches on the Tyrrhenian Sea
If I could go one place every year, it would be this property. Fabulous property, beautiful town with wonderful people and close to gorgeous beaches and other hill towns. Villa is spacious with large living rooms and bathrooms, a great room and a large modern kitchen, and a great patio surrounded by gardens and "flower pot" homes.
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.
Food Markets just steps from the front door, Three Local Coffee Bars within 25-second walk.
