A brief description about the area:
The ancient village of Calvanico is located in the heart of the Apennines a few kilometers north from Salerno. It 's handy “base-camp” where you can avoid the hustle and bustle of the city, but where at the same time, you can easily reach the many important tourist sites and the marine archaeological region of Campania, in southern Italy: it takes only 20 minutes to get to the beaches and the port of Salerno, and then go to Amalfi, Positano, Capri, Ischia and Sorrento, 45 minutes to get to Naples, 35 minutes to Pompeii, Herculaneum, Vesuvius for 50 minutes, 60 minutes to go to Paestum and then continue to the Cilento National park area, where you can easily arrange for excursions even one day, returning home in the evening and so be able to visit in a few days all the major tourist sites in the region.
Calvanico is situated on the slopes of the mountains Picentini, about 500 meters above sea level and more precisely at the base of the slopes of Pizzo San Michele. It is full of chestnut trees and walking paths that offer many trails for nature walks , among which the most popular are those that lead to the peaks of Mt Picentini, the old mills, and one that leads to the chapel of Our Lady of Loreto.
In close proximity ( 2 Km) is the natural area 'Frassineto' with its trees of various kinds, with paths and trails. It’s easy to move through even for children. The park is also equipped with a picnic area prepared with built-in barbecue and a children's playground. Among the many cultural events on offer, there are craft shows and impromptu painting exhibitions organized by Proloco. There are many recreational events, such as religious holidays and festivals of which the highlights are represented by the Feast of Our Lady of Loreto on 5 August and the Chestnut Festival in Autumn. The patron saint of Calvanico is Saint Michael the Archangel, which is celebrated on 8 May with a picturesque evening stroll along the slopes of Monte San Michele to reach the peak and the shrine dedicated to him.
We very much enjoyed our stay in this beautiful house in the village of Calvanico. We were greeted warmly by the owner and given a detailed tour of the house and full instructions on how to operate the tv, lights fire etc. The house is furnished with a mix of traditional luxurous itallian furnature and a more modern kitchen but still with Italian design. The gardens are beautiful and are ideal to sit out in the summer with enough sun and shade provided by the villages traditional hazel nut trees. A car is essential and we found satnav was better to put Calvanico into the search than the street as this made the direction of approaching the house far easier. The owner had provided detailed instructions on how to get there and was very accommodating with the time we arrived in the evening and with our departure time early in the morning. Highly recommended.
Mille Grazie Michelle
Villa-Lilla is very well furnished and very clean. It was a pleasure to stay there. It is centrally situated in Calvanico so you can walk to the shops and restaurants. the owner is friendly. You will not be disappointed.
We had some cloudy days during our stay in mid April, but nevertheless we had a very good time. The two gardens are wonderful. Despite the cloudy afternoons we managed to eat outside and sunbathe some mornings. The BBQ is wonderful, even in the rain it worked fine ;) We loved to be able to use the woodburner in the livingroom in the evenings. Very pleasant warmth and cosy atmosphere! Lots of daytrip possibilities. Pompei, Herculaneum, Napels, and the Amalfi Coast are within easy driving distance.
Sono stata in questa villa con la famiglia e i due cani e ci siamo trovati molto bene,villa spettacolare e molto accogliente...le foto rispecchiano la realtà....il proprietario davvero una persona squisita e disponibile...da consigliare assolutamente!!!
Que dire de l’accueil si ce n'est que Michele est exceptionnel ! D'une gentillesse infinie et d'une serviabilité exemplaire. Il est soucieux de votre bien être et cela commence par des explications claires pour trouver la villa.
Celle-ci est magnifique et bien située pour accéder à tous les trésors de la Campanie : Pompéi, Herculanum, Vésuve, Paestum, côte amalfitaine et bien sûr Naples et Salerne. Nous y avons passé quatre nuits fin octobre et ne pouvons que recommander cette villa. L'été, elle doit être très agréable car très ombragée et dans les hauteurs au dessus de Salerne.
Die erstklassig ausgestattete Villa liegt idyllisch in den Bergen von Salerno (idealer Ausgangspunkt zum Entdecken von Neapel und Salerno, der Amalfiküste und des Cilento-nationaloparkes). Die Gärten rund um das Haus sind ideal für Kinder und zum Entspannen. Abseits vom großen Trubel bekommt man hier Einblick in das Leben der Menschen. Vor allem ein Besuch im Alimentari (Lebensmittelladen) am Marktplatz lohnt sich. Der Vermieter des Hauses ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Insgesamt ein Ort, den es lohnt mehrmals zu besuchen.
