About the property

In the charming secluded town of Lauro, nestled at the end of a wooded valley 40min

The manor, built in the mid-nineteenth century, has the medieval castle of the Lancellotti that dominates the old town center. The villa by a paved courtyard, gives onto a verdant garden shaded by tall trees. The three bedrooms available are on the first floor, two with double beds and one with two single beds. Beyond the garden and the rooftops there is a view across the valley towards the steep rise of a mountain range. Even though the residence is a stone's throw from the central square, it is a realm of tranquility without any traffic and the faint murmur from the piazza below is hardly audible over the birdsong. A perfect retreat for alternating days of relaxation with busy sightseeing and cultural tours.

Villa below a Medieval Castle
average rating of 5.0 based on 2 reviews

Lovely villa, tons of space

  • 5 of 5

We were kindly hosted by Nicky and Anna Maria in the recently redone (but historically outfitted) villa which was very roomy. The space easily accommodated myself, my sister, my mom and my 1 yr old niece. We were made to feel at home and cooked in the kitchen for a few meals as well as enjoyed the local offerings.

If you stay in Lauro (or Irpinia in general) plan on traveling 20-30 minutes to most places.

Also- the Castello Lancelotti is only open on weekends

About the Town

Lauro is a hillside town 15 min inland from the A1 motorway (Nola), which is a half hour drive from Naples with its international airport. The Amalfi coast and other major cities are within less than an hour's drive with all they have to offer in terms of art, archeological sites and pleasurable pastimes. Traveling east from Lauro through the Appenine mountains you can reach Avellino in 20 minutes and the wild Irpinia with its national parks. Matera and the region of Puglia are a further hour's journey. Undoubtedly Lauro is in a strategic position for who is wanting to visit places of interest in southern Italy.

In the fine season the town attracts visitors thanks to its castle, the museum dedicated to Umberto Nobile (transpolar aerostat expedition), the ruins of a Roman villa and because of its natural setting which Favors a mild and cooler climate, a refuge from the summer heat.
