About Ralph Pagliuca
My wife and I are retired and we both live in the uk. We spend most of the summers in Italy not just at our own property but also with relatives and friends as we have lots of relatives that live all over Italy. I am of Italian origin from the southern part of the country and speak the language fluently. I love this part of Italy where I can relax and enjoy all the local events and socializing with the friendly local people.
Why Ralph Pagliuca chose Montefalcione
The property was built and was completed in 2005. The reason for this location is that I am originally from this area but more so it reminds me of the slow pace and the laid back way of Italian life. Only a short walk into the small picturesque town of Montefalcione where you will find a variety of Shops , Mini Markets, Post Office, Bank, Cash machines, Bus service to nearby towns and villages not forgetting a selection of local restaurants , pizzerias, and bars. Also not too far away is the familiar Neapolitan Riviera just 60 minutes car drive accessible via an excellent Major road and motorway network where you can visit Naples , Sorrento, Amalfi, Maiori, Positano, Ravello, Pompeii, Vesuvius or you can take a short trip to the Islands of Capri or Ischia and much more just ask for more information when booking

Trouble free, from arrival to departing. Comfortable, extremely clean, exactly as stated in the description. Ralf was a good host and available to us with any questions we might have. We were a part of six adults and one child but we we had our own privacy, plenty of indoor and outdoor space. Thank you Ralf for letting us stay.
We had a wonderful time at this property. There was nothing that was catered for or available.
The outside area around the pool was so luxurious and the views of the quiet countryside and distant mountains are absolutely stunning and will stay in our memories for ever.
The house is nicely laid out, with the kitchen and dining area particularly nice.
Ralph is such a lovely fellow - super cheery and helpful. He met us close to the property and escorted us the final few miles to the property which made it much easier to find.
The property is perfectly located in sleepy countryside for a restful and quiet stay, while being close enough for day trips to Pompeii, Herculaneum and Baia.
Overall, just what we wanted and highly recommended.
Peaceful and welcoming, home from home
On arrival in italy the owner met us not far from the villa and guided us to the door. First impressions were wow and these didn’t fade. The villa was spotlessly clean and had everything needed to make our stay home from home. The owner couldn’t do enough for us and made us feel very welcome giving advice on local festivals, restaurants and sightseeing.
The views were stunning and it was always a relief to come back to the peace and quiet of the villa after long days out and about.
Would definitely return and would recommend to anyone wanting to experience Italy untouched by tourists but within easy reach of all the main attractions.
Dear Louise, Many thanks for your kind words and I am so pleased to hear that you all enjoyed your stay at our villa.
You were wonderful guests and you would be most welcomed to stay at anytime in the future.
If you are looking for a lively, bustling holiday, this villa is not for you. If you want chill, relaxation and a taste of the real Italy then this will be your idea of paradise. The villa is of a very high standard and the scenery is idealic. You will never get bored watching the view from the pool. The on-line photos do not do the villa justice. The real thing is far better. The days at this time of year (July) are very warm but the temp drops about ten degrees in the evenings, making it very comfortable through the night. The local town of Montifalcioni is typical Italy and the villa is in easy reach of other, busy and beatiful towns such as Benevento and Caserta, for some night life and shopping, but still in the Italian way. You are an hour from Pompeii, the Amalie Coast and even less from Napoli. If you are fortunate enough to have Ralph, the owner in the country at the time of your break you will find him kean and eager to help you in every way he can. We could write a book about the reasons for coming here. You just need to try it. Iain, Kaz and family.

Fantastic villa, great location
We have just returned from a wonderful stay at this villa. The villa is lovely, clean, tidy and more well equipped than our own home! The owner, Ralph, met us en route and showed us to the villa which was really helpful. He showed us around and even provided a very generous food pack to get us through until the shops opened the next day. Everything has been thought of in this villa from kitchen supplies to towels, toiletries, games and (so many) books! All of the bedrooms have fans and we found it very comfortable at night. Location is ideal for exploring, in a week we managed to see Pompeii, Herculaneum, Sorrento, Salerno, the Amalfi Coast and the temples at Paestum. Ralph was a super host and was contactable throughout our stay, offering welcome suggestions and advice on places to see. He even fixed a scratch on our hire car for us before we left! Perfect villa, perfect holiday! Can't recommend this place enough!
