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

Map

Villa Avellino in Pozzuoli is a great base upon which to build your holiday in the Bay of Naples. Located within Pozzuoli’s historical centre, Rione Terra, you can simply walk your way through the town, its Roman ruins and the Flavian Amphitheatre. The hotel is a 5-minute walk from the metro station to Naples or Sorrento, 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.  The volcanic crater of Solfatara can also be visited, where mud pools and fumaroles are a fun touristic attraction.

This is the third occasion that Antonio has organised an Italian holiday for me. As it was a Birthday celebration involving a party of 10, the arrangements were complex, involving a villa, guides and attendance at the Palio on July 2nd. Without exception everything went exactly as planned. The recommended villa on the Montestigliano Estate, south west of Siena, was wonderful. Our guide made sure we had a full understanding of the history and culture of the Palio which meant that, with a spectacular view over the Campo from the apartment booked by Antonio, we were able to appreciate the event that much more. We shall certainly be going back to Italy with Expertoitaly.read more

Antonio with his meticulous planning and caring service has been solely responsible for the best Italian holidays we have had. His ability to offer excellent hotel accommodation which provides for every need and requirement is second to none . Hotels that are not main stream , that provide high quality of service in excellent locations are one of Antonio’s strength. It’s great to have a provider that know and understands his market.

July 2018 _________________________________ Have just completed another 10 day holiday arranged by Antonio at Expert to Italy. We went with Antonio's suggestion and spent 2 days at Matera and then the remainder in Pisciotta in the Cilento. Matera was amazing and felt completely different to anywhere else we have been in Italy. We loved Pisciotta and the hotel was wonderful with lovely owners who were great at suggesting things to do. We visited a buffalo farm, a vinyard and tooks boats to isolated coves with lovely clear water. All arrangements were absolutely faultless. We would never have found such lovely places without Antonio! 2016 _________________________________ We have just returned from a fantastic holiday suggested no arranged by ExpertTo Italy. Once again the organisation by Antonio was flawless and everything worked perfectly. We spent 5 nights by lake Maggiore and 3 in Cogne in the Italian Alps. Both hotels and locations were fantastic - particularly the Bellvue in Cogne. Please see trip advisor if interested in the hotels as I will give a more specific review there - I'm not a fanatic reviewer but both really deserve it. We have used this company for the past 5 years and Antonio seems to have a real gift for finding fantastic hotels and matching locations to his clients. I would not usually put the level of trust in anyone to arrange holidays for me that I have with Antonio but he has delivered every time and I can unreservedly recommend his services. Italy is a beautiful country with huge variety - if you describe what you like to Antonio and let him make suggestions then you will not be disappointed. Very definitely 5 stars from me. So - Antonio and team, please keep it up! Jonread more

Antonio delivered more than expected! Our family of four stayed at two beautiful villa's on the Amalfi Coast. Both of the locations were top class. Antonio provided excellent service and was always available if we had questions about the details of our trip. He was easy to work with and we would recommend his services to others traveling to Italy.read more
