Property description

Casa del Cipresso has been restored and modernized, yet still retains all it's charm and local characteristics to give you a feel for authentic, Southern Italian living.

There is an open kitchen/living/dining area featuring a wood-burning fireplace, bedroom with traditional wood-beamed ceiling and attached bathroom, and a lofted bedroom with two twin beds.

This medieval village house provides the ideal, central, location to act as your home base as you discover the off-the-beaten-path regions of Campania, Basilicata, and Puglia. Explore the hill towns, castles, vineyards, historical sites, and the beautiful countryside of Southern Italy. Experience Italian hospitality at it's very best - the locals are friendly, welcoming, and helpful - you will really feel like a part of this Italian community!

WALK TO EVERYTHING:
Casa del Cipresso is situated in the historic center of Calitri with a grocery store, restaurant, pizzeria, coffee bar, bakery, internet cafe, and weekly open-air market all just steps away; a 10-15 min. stroll will bring you to the newer town center of Calitri where you will find a larger selection of shopping and services including restaurants, bars, banks, post office, and swimming pool.

The home has the advantage of being located very near to parking and shopping and is reached by a fairly short, gentle hill as opposed to the steep stairs and inclines needed to access many of the borgo residences.

DAY TRIP TO:
-The Amalfi Coast (1 hour 30 minutes)
-Pompeii, Herculaneum and Mt. Vesuvius (1 hour 40 minutes)
-Naples (1 hour 45 minutes)
-Beaches of Puglia (1 hour 30 minutes)

-Royal Palace at Caserta (2 hours)

There is public bus service to Calitri from the Naples Airport, Naples Train Station, Salerno Train Station and Avellino Bus Station. A car is not required for exploring the town of Calitri itself, but is highly recommended for exploring the rural surrounding area and sights!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We have been vacation homeowners in Calitri, Italy and sharing our home-away-from-home with other travelers since 2007. The colorful streets and character-filled houses charmed us from the very first moment we "discovered" this gem of a town in Southern Italy! We are not a management company nor property service provider nor booking agency; we are homeowners and neighbors and fellow lovers of Italy. When we are not staying at Casa del Cipresso in Calitri, we reside in the New York City suburbs, where we are raising our teenager and toddler. Please feel free to contact me should you have further questions. Best regards, Nicole
