Overview

Villa Avellino Historic Residence is a renovated 16th-century building, boasting contemporary fittings while keeping the charming, antique air of the premises.

 

The villa was built in 1540 by the Princes of Colonna Di Stigliano. It remained in their family until 1797 when it was sold to the Benedettini Priests of the Congregation Of Monte Vergine. In 1807 the order of Priests was abolished and the property was passed on to the Dukes of Lusciano until 1836, when the property was sold to the archaeologist Francesco Maria Avellino from whom the building now takes its name. The entire complex and grounds have been declared of environmental and cultural importance by the Ministry of Environment and Culture and so the complex has been listed an important heritage.

 

The restoration work was completed in the first half of 2011, adding modern features while keeping intact the original building.

 

Villa Avellino is fitting for families and couples looking for a retreat in a lovely upcoming destination, less intense than Naples, more affordable than the Amalfi Coast, and with easy access to all of the Bay of Naples' focal points.

 

The villa is right in the centre of Pozzuoli and provides picture perfect views of the Bay of Naples with the islands of Capri, Ischia, Nisida and Procida.

Rooms

The loft-style apartments are large, bright and just ideal for parties of 4, or larger families. You can choose between a two-floor or one-floor layout, a private balcony or terrace, and views of either the Gulf of Pozzuoli or inner garden.

 

The Italian marble bathrooms are all equipped with bidet, large shower, hair dryer and courtesy service toiletries and towels.

Dining

There's an excellent breakfast buffet laid out De Gemmis Bistrot, highlights are Italian pastries, pizzettas, cold hams, cheeses, tomatoes and toast with hot drinks made to order.

 

Lunch and dinner are a reasonably priced Italian fare

The hotel is a 5-minute walk from the metro station to Naples , and 10 minutes from Pozzuoli’s port, where you can catch a ferry to the Phlegrean Islands of Ischia, Procida or Nisida.

 

It is also the access point to Baia’s Underwater Archaeology Park, the very few places on earth where you can experience archaeological diving.
