Casa del Cipresso retains all it's charm and local characteristics to give you a feel for authentic, Southern Italian living. This medieval village house, in the Hill Town of Calitri, provides a terrific location to base yourself centrally in the Avellino wine country between Naples and Bari; discover the regions of Campania, Basilicata, and Puglia and experience Italian hospitality at it's very best. The locals are friendly, welcoming, and helpful; you will soon feel like a real part of this Italian community!
The home includes a Great Room (Kitchen/Living/Dining), Master Bedroom w/ bathroom, and a cozy Loft Bedroom.
Walk to Everything: Casa del Cipresso is situated in the historic center of Calitri; shops, restaurants, bar, bakery, and weekly outdoor market are all very nearby (The grocery store, coffee bar and Internet Cafe are only a 2 min. walk down the street.); a 10-15 min. stroll to the 'new' town center of Calitri and you will find a much larger selection of shops, restaurants, banks, etc. (including the swimming pool.)
