- english, italian
I was born in Furore in this beautiful and historic manor house, then inherited about thirty years ago by my adoptive uncle. I care a lot this house that preserves in itself the whole history of my family and my origins, the traditions of this country, a true little paradise suspended between sea and hill, where colors and perfumes merge. In my youth I lived some years in New York, and now I live and work between Rome and Furore. I renovated the residence to use 3 apartments for a holiday home. I manage the Calipso Residence with my wife Ida who takes care of every details to ensure our guests the best comfort. It will be a pleasure to have you as our guests!

Beautiful stay and view!
Our family of 4 had a wonderful time here. The apartment was clean and cool with a well stocked kitchen. We could walk to a small grocery store and restaurant. We would definitely recommend this apartment.
Great spot, beautiful views, and great hosts! Leopold is easy to communicate with and extremely helpful. Ida is very sweet but does not speak English, however, her smile speaks volumes. We will be back!
Couples getaway in April
This was a first attempt at a week long double date with another empty-nesting couple so naturally, planning travel and accommodations took a little more research and angst. Needless to say, the hosts Leopoldo and Ida did not disappoint! Greeted by huge smiles at NAP airport by Ida, I felt the positive pulse of our stay already.
The terrain of the Amalfi Coast is stunning but not for the faint of heart. Unless you’re young and a thrill seeker, I would advise against car renting and take advantage of the city (SITA) buses: The bus drivers are amazing but close your eyes and perhaps bring your own barf bag (if cursed with motion sickness)...or work with the hosts?
Back to the villa: it’s amazing - no complaints, NOT A ONE - but also not giving anything else away. Experience the beauty of Italy for yourself; keeping in mind true beauty comes internally and from your interactions with others.
Oh so Hallmark-y (sorry-not sorry)... Relax and enjoy!
Wonderful relaxing place to stay in on the Amalfi Coast❤️
Our stay was fantastic in this apartment, lots of space for a family and relaxing spaces to go relax or sun tan. The owners were very helpful and friendly with our concerns also. The only downside about this place is the location and needing a car to drive around to all the other Coastal towns. We rented a car and seen some of the most beautiful scenic towns along the coast. I would highly recommend this apartment for your stay in Amalfi.

Stunning views, fabulous apartment with all amenities. Leo was a very helpful host.
We had a fabulous stay at Calipso apartments. Leo organized for us to be picked up at the train station in Salerno, which was terrific. The apartment is in a beautiful location away from the touristy parts of Amalfi. It had everything you need for a great stay. The views from the balcony are breathtaking. A car is essential to stay here as we discovered. Even though the bus stop is opposite the front door it the bus is always crowded and doesn’t always stop to pick you up. It only runs hourly or so which can affect your daily plans. To book a taxi it is extremely expensive. Definitely recommend this stay with a car.
Confort, tranquillité et vue incroyable - Comfortable, quiet and unbelievable view
En juin 2018,nous sommes demeurés 7 jours dans la suite ‘Sapphire’ des résidences Calipso (qui comprend 3 suites), à Furore sur la côte amalfitaine, et cela s’est avéré un excellent choix. L’endroit et la vue sur la mer sont spectaculaires. Les suites sont modernes, spacieuses et très bien entretenues. Le couple propriétaire est des plus serviable et très présent pour toute sorte d’informations utiles et historiques (ils demeurent également sur place). M. Leopoldo parle couramment l’anglais, ce qui n’est pas toujours courant dans cette région. Il y a un double service d’autobus quotidien, très utile pour se rendre à Amalfi, d’où toutes les excursions (Ravello, Positano, Capri, Pompei, etc.) partent. Nous recommandons grandement cet emplacement.
In June 2018, we stayed in Calipso residences’ Sapphire suite (there are 3 suites available) for 7 days and it was an excellent choice. They are located in Furore (Amalfi Coast, roughly mid-way between Positano and Amalfi), and offer a spectacular high-level sea view. They are also newly refreshed, spacious and well maintained. The husband and wife owners seem to be always available for all kinds of useful informations (they also live on site). M. Leopoldo speaks fluent English, which is not always the case for people in this region. There is a dual daily bus service, very useful to get to Amalfi, from where lots of boat or bus excursions will take place (Ravello, Positano, Capri, Pompei, etc.). We highly recommend these residences for a great staying on the Amalfi Coast.
