Maria grew up in the nearby Medieval village of San Vittore del Lazio where each year on 8/9/10 August the Festa Medievale is celebrated. Maria and Derek built this home to celebrate their retirement after Maria spent almost 35 years living in the UK. Maria has extensive knowledge of the local area and can make your holiday a true Italian experience. Derek will ensure your BBQ and pool are ready and give you great advise on places to eat and where to get an amazing bottle of local wine.
Owner purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Owner chose Pignataro Interamna
This property is in a truly amazing location to visit Rome for a day, the Amalfi coast or venture up into the mountains or take a drive to the local beach. It will not disappoint you. Maria and Derek built this home with true attention to detail as Derek's background in the UK was in building and project management and they have built over 10 homes for themselves. This is a great place to base yourself if you want to experience true Italian culture as Maria has many family members who stop by to visit. Maria and Derek like to spend quality time here and in the UK and enjoy welcoming guests to visit the area.

This is a lovely property. It was very difficult to figure out the route to get to the property. Luckily the owner was very kind enough to come and get us. They were also kind enough to provide some food and drink on our arrival.
The place is spacious and very clean.We felt secure at all hours of the night when we arrived from visiting . Also we were given a fan to compensate for the fact that the property did not have air conditioning. They had mentioned that they were in the midst of getting it installed.
I was also able to wash my clothes and hang them in the laundry room. There was a dryer available at a cost of 0.25 euros per kwatt. That was a bit disappointing .I was not able to use the clothes till next 2 days . All in all, this is a lovely property with lovely owners.I would highly recommend the property .
Thank you ,
Maddy & Caesar
Ciao Maddy e Caesar, it's been a real pleasure meeting and having you staying here at Nirvana Vista, what a great family! Grazie Mille for taking good care of our home and you are most welcome to come again in the near future. I am sorry you found difficult drying the washing, it's probably my fault for not explains that the white stentino/drier we provide in the laundry room is for outside use, I do apologise I took it for granted that you were familiar with it. With the high temperature and sunshine we get here it only takes couple hours for the washing to dry, I will make sure future guests are informed.
You will be pleased to know that the installation of the Aircon is now completed.
Warmest regards from my family to your dearest family and IN BOCCA AL LUPO.
Maria e Derek
Fantastic Italian destination!
All throught the booking proces we were made to feel very comfortable about this property.
The communication from Maria and Derek was 1st class. They provide excellent information about the area, before we arrived.
On arrival at Naples airport we were given clear instructions how to drive to the property.
Once at the house Maria was there to greet us, showing us around, they even left use with food starters, something that is really helpful when you've just stepped of the plane.
The property itself is delightful nice big rooms with all the ameneties one looks forward to these days. The grounds, I say grounds because it is a big garden by UK standards is beautiful, the scenery makes you want to take up painting.
Maria and Derek our hosts. Derek was away in the UK while we were there, however his wife is a fantastc host. We both felt that when we arrived we met our host, when we left we said good bye to a new friend. We have met their family daughter grandchildren, all absolutely delightful.
We will certainly be coming back Maria, I have never been made to feel so welcome. Thank you xx
Carl and Karen were absolutely perfect guests to host. Delightful couple, super friendly, interesting and respectful. They left our apartment in pristine condition. I highly recommend C&k to all hosts and would gladly host them again. They arrived as guests and left as friends. Grazie Mille Carl e Karen for being such a special people, Derek and I look forward to having you staying in the very near future.
Idyllic rural setting, with great hosts.
We had a wonderful family holiday with our two children aged 5 & 11. Maria and Derek were attentive to ensure we had everything we needed, whilst still respecting our privacy. We enjoyed fresh tomato sauce from their garden, and spent time relaxing in the fantastic garden. The house is a great base to visit the wider area.
Many thanks to them both for a lovely stay.
Excellent villa, great location
Maria and Derek were perfect hosts, offering help and advice but not in anyway intrusive. The villa was immaculate and spacious with everything you could possibly need. Pool was lovely and refreshing after a days sightseeing. Villa location perfect for visiting Naples, Roma and the coast. Highly recommended
Grazie mille TIM,
Derek and I loved having you and your family. Grazie for treating our place like your own, any host would be fortunate to have you staying. We certainly hope to see you again in the near future.
Beautiful home, relaxing location, wonderful hosts
This is a lovely apartment, spacious and well maintained.
Maria and Derek are perfect hosts, they know the local area very well and can advise you on what to see, but also allow you your privacy.
I would recommend this apartment if you want a relaxing holiday and the chance to see the "real Italy" combined with the ability to travel to the tourist sites at Pompeii, Hercolaneum, Naples, Rome, and the sea all within easy distance.
Modern stylish and spacious, beautiful location
We were made to feel very welcome by Maria and Derek. The accomodation was clean, stylish and spacious. Nice big kitchen/dining area. We slept very well - it is a quite location and the total blackout shutters are great. The house is surrounded by a lovely big garden and mountains. Monte Cassino monastery is spectacular. There is a great cake shop in Cassino town and also a very stylish fresh pasta shop and a big veg market.
Grazie Mille for your review we really appreciate it. It was lovely having you staying and hope to welcome you back in the near future.
