Casa del Cipresso in Calitri, Avellino, has been restored and modernized, yet still retains all it's charm and local characteristics to give you a feel for authentic, Southern Italian living.
There is an open kitchen/living/dining area featuring a wood-burning fireplace, bedroom with traditional wood-beamed ceiling and attached bathroom, and a lofted bedroom with two twin beds.
This medieval village house in the Avellino Province provides the ideal, central, location to act as your home base as you discover the off-the-beaten-path regions of Campania, Basilicata, and Puglia. Explore the hill towns, castles, vineyards, historical sites, and the beautiful countryside of Southern Italy. Experience Italian hospitality at it's very best - the locals are friendly, welcoming, and helpful - you will really feel like a part of this Italian community!
WALK TO EVERYTHING:
Casa del Cipresso is situated in the historic center/"Borgo" of Calitri, Avellino, with the grocery store, restaurant, pizzeria, coffee bar, bakery, internet cafe, and weekly open-air market all just steps away; a 10-15 min. stroll will bring you to the newer town center of Calitri where you will find a larger selection of shopping and services including restaurants, bars, banks, post office, and swimming pool.
The home has the advantage of being located very near to parking and shopping and is reached by a fairly short, gentle hill as opposed to the steep stairs and inclines needed to access many of the borgo residences.

We have been vacation homeowners in Calitri, Italy and sharing our home-away-from-home with other travelers since 2007. The colorful streets and character-filled houses charmed us from the very first moment we "discovered" this gem of a town in Southern Italy!
We are not a management company nor property service provider nor booking agency; we are homeowners and neighbors and fellow lovers of Italy. When we are not staying at Casa del Cipresso in Calitri, we reside in the New York City suburbs, where we are raising our teenager and toddler.

Nicole purchased this house in 2007
We returned to Calitri again to spend a relaxing time touring and enjoying time with family.The weather was sunny and warm and ideal for strolling and we discovered a new pub called Double Jack that we recommend very much where we enjoyed pizza and beer. This particular property is much larger and more comfortable than a different one we previously rented. This house feels like a proper little house and has a real bedroom where you can close the door. We also were relieved at the location. The Calitri borgo is set into the hillside and homes can require a very steep climb and/or staircases to access but this one was very close and convenient to our car and only had a short and very slight incline. Nicole is a native English speaker so all our questions were easily addressed. Additionally, we were impressed with the check in and out procedure. We have wasted a lot of time on holiday waiting for a property representative to meet us with the key. We have had to time our flight and car hire and drive to meet up and at times we have been left waiting with our luggage for a lengthy time for someone to arrive.This was unexpectedly easy for us as we could arrive and depart on our own terms and do self check in and check out. We will certainly return and would definitely recommend it to friends.
We enjoyed the city of Calitri. The shop keepers supplied us with small amounts of necessary condiments and groceries for a fair price.
Nicole was a wonderful resource, going beyond to help us find medical care.
The unit was cozy and clean.
Coffee shop was conveniently located across the street.
A lovely stay. Beautiful area, really peaceful, and a very pleasant town. Very interesting, and a god base to explore the local area. Nicole was increadibly helpful - thank you
THE ONLY DOWNSIDE TO OUR VISIT WAS THAT WE HAD TO LEAVE AFTER ONLY A WEEK. AFTER 4 DAYS IN THE AREA I COMMENTED - "I COULD GO HOME NOW AND FEEL THAT I HAD A GREAT VACATION IN ITALY." THEN IT ONLY GOT BETTER AND BETTER AS WE GOT TO KNOW THE OLD TOWN. MET MANY MANY FRIENDLY PEOPLE, BOTH ITALIAN AND EX-PATS WHO ARE LUCKY ENOUGH TO SPENTS MONTHS HERE. WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK! NICOLE: THANKS FOR ALL THE PERSONAL HELP THAT YOU GAVE.
Nicole's house was lovely. It had everything we needed for our stay. The house is in the medieval part of Calitri (the borgo). It was an incredibly interesting area. There are two excellent restaurants just up the hill. And most importantly, we found the locals extremely friendly and helpful. We could have stayed longer.
We chose Calitri because it was close to San Fele where my father was born and to Bisaccia. We enjoyed our stay in the home. The people were very helful and friendly, from the neighbors to the people who worked in the internet cafe, the minimarket, and the bakery. Calitri is a medieval hill town. We felt at times that we were transported back in history.
