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 sleek decor and high-tech technology inside. The property is located in the village of Laurito at about 475 meters above sea level. 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. We are not seeking the renter who needs the obvious high activity or pristine perfection of a luxury hotel. Small villages in southern Italy are quaint but off the beaten track.
Some services do not function as smoothly or consistently as in other parts of Italy. Lights and gas are never a problem but cable and Internet can be a bit more difficult. Sky Cable has been quite responsive but the wireless Internet at the home has been less than even adequate. There is no 'shopping' other than for food and drink. Palinuro, the closest beach, is 9.8 miles away. 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.
The property is located within a 15-minute drive to the shores of Palinuro on the Cilento Coast. The upper floors boast both a mountain and sea view. Gentle mountain breezes offer a relaxing alternative to a more coastal property. It is exactly 9.8 miles. Any busy executive would welcome the opportunity to refresh and renew at this property while maintaining a very low profile. It is also perfect for families who want to have a relaxing vacation and do not need the contrived entertainment value of large theme parks. 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 village of Laurito offers a safe place for your children to run and play. 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). The owners have an extensive questionnaire and information packet that allows prospective guests to determine if this special and hidden location is a good match for their vacation plans.
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.
