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!

Stunning Views and Wonderful Accomodation on the Amalfi Coast
We stayed for 5 nights in the Smeraldo apartment this beautiful house overlooking the Amalfi coast. The master bedroom and kitchen open onto the balcony and give spectacular panoramic views. The kitchen is fully equipped and everything was spotlessly clean. It is very tastefully decorated with great attention to detail. The owners were extremely kind and gracious with their time with great knowledge of local places to visit. We have been traveling for Nine months in Europe using VRBO accommodations and this apartment and its owners were by far the best we have encountered. If you are going to stay in the Amalfi coast we highly recommend staying with Leopoldo and Ida. If we ever return we will definitely stay here and you should too.
It was a pleasure to host Daniel and his wife, they have been very kind and very friendly guests!
The house at departure was very clean and orderly, they are a very respectful guest of the house rules.
I recommend Daniel and his wife to everyone as next guests, but we also hope to host them another time!
Ida and Leo
Awesome in every way
I could not really complain anything about the stay. The property was beautiful. Leopoldo was so nice and helpful in providing me with local knowledge. My family had a wonderful time vacationing there. I read the reviews before I made a decision to stay there and all of them came true. Definitely recommend!!!
Thank you Yunjin,
It was a pleasure host you and your family!
Hosts and Location were Wonderful
Thanks to our hosts, the Porporas, we had a truly memorable and comfortable stay in Furore on the Amalfi Coast. Our hosts were warm and welcoming and went above and beyond what we expected. For example, Easter morning, they thoughtfully brought us a traditional plate of sausage and warm boiled eggs, which we quickly devoured. And on our last day, Leo took us to several gorgeous outlooks that we had missed and treated us to coffee and dessert in a local eatery. Leo is a very interesting conversationalist and a very kind and considerate host. And his wife took considerable time to explain the local restaurants and the rules of the house.
No photos can do justice to the breathtaking vistas or, in fact, the beautiful apartment. Immaculately clean and tastefully decorated, the property was truly lovely, from the shiny tiled floors to the charming doors and windows. Traditional decorative touches added to the ambience. The bed was very comfortable, and the kitchen was extremely well equipped, with a nice sized fridge. It was helpful to be able to throw dirty clothes into the washer, too. The hosts also provide dedicated parking very close by.
As in all tourist areas of Italy, driving was a challenge, but the bus stop is nearby, and there are many tours to choose from.
We would definitely stay with the Porporas again.
Thank you Julia!
We stayed a week in Calypso and it was wonderful. Our host Leopoldo was so helpful, nice and friendly. The view from apartment was stunning; we ate breakfast on the balcony every Morning and it was the best way to start the day with that view. I can recommed this apartment; everthing worked out and was neat and clean.
Grazie. E' stato un piacere ospitarvi!
Wonderful place with stunning views!
We stayed in the Smeraldo apartment and it is exactly as the owners described! The balcony is accessible from one of the bedrooms and the kitchen. The views are simply stunning! The apartment was spotless and furnished with everything you need. The first evening around 5 p.m. there was an explosion that startled us. I went out on the balcony to investigate and another explosion occurred and it came from the church across the street. The next evening the same thing happened and then there was a festival taking place at the church. Leopoldo told us we could have attended and enjoyed some great home town Italian food but my wife and I are introverts who go to bed early and usually wake before the birds.The hotel/restaurant next door (Bacco) was VERY good one night and just okay the second time we ate there. Bacco is also where you can purchase your bus tickets.There is a market just a very short drive down the road with another restaurant (Luca's) that was very good as well. La Selva restaurant in Bomerano (short drive up the mountain) was the BEST!!!! If we had discovered it the first night we might have eaten there every night. The salami pizza was the best pizza I have ever had! We chose the village of Furore because of the very convenient location to the numerous hiking trails in the area (stunning scenery on the hikes nearby). We chose to get a very early start on the "Path of the Gods" and only saw 3 locals on the entire hike! We were told the path can get very busy unless you go early! If you hike the path out of San Lazzaro to the monastery ruins (highly recommended) then be careful and look for signs at all trail crossings. We missed one and ended up hiking two hours on the wrong path and had to double back. The bus stop is a very short walk and the assigned parking space is VERY convenient. There is a short staircase (maybe 12-15 steps) from the street level to the front door which makes hauling suitcases, groceries etc. a breeze. Leopoldo and his wife are wonderful people who made us feel very welcome. My wife and I prefer a softer mattress and pillows and found them too firm for our liking, but this is just our preference. To no fault of Leo and his wonderful wife there is a neighborhood dog who will bark late at night or in the wee hours of morning which did interrupt our sleep occasionally. So, in short, the dog and bed/pillows were the only reasons for not receiving 5 stars.
A beautiful view from this very clean apartment
We stayed at this apartment for one week. The apartment was very nice and was sparkling clean. There is a balcony that can be accessed from one of the bedrooms and from the kitchen. The apartment is located up in the hills in Furore and the view from the balcony overlooking the Mediterranean Sea is stunning. Leopoldo was a very gracious host and made us feel welcome. We went for walks up and down the steps above and below Furore, and enjoyed dinners at a nearby restaurant and touring the nearby winery.
