Nicole has the perfect location for a holiday home. Calitri is an extraordinary place surrounded by breathtaking scenery and charming people and her townhouse is ideal for a complete rest. It’s clean, comfortable, quiet and very welcoming thanks to Nicole’s expertise in making guests feel at home.

We had a lovely stay in Calitri. House was great, lovely and clean! We had family in candida, so was an ideal base.

Delightful house in a truly charming rustic Italian village. Within easy reach of Pompeii, Paestum and pleasant beaches. Locals very welcoming and house very well equipped and quiet.

We had a very pleasant stay in Calitri. This property was spotless and had everything we needed to set up a base camp there. Calitri is a charming and welcoming town, with much history and beautiful friendly people. We enjoyed venturing out in all directions to Pompei, Amalfi Coast, Matera, Melfi and Alberobello. Every nearby town had something interesting to offer. In Calitri, the restaurants, while few in number, offered excellent food at very reasonable prices. We would definitely recommend to anyone considering an experience that is off the usual tourist path.


We had a very enjoyable stay. Calitri is a very atmospheric little town, set in quite spectacular countryside. It’s a good base from which to explore the area, though having a car certainly helps – we went to Castel del Monte by bus and taxi and it was quite complicated, to say the least. Like the other visitors, we found the people of Calitri very friendly, in spite of the rudimentary nature of our Italian! The Casa del Cipresso itself is very comfortable and well-appointed, and well situated for grocery store, internet cafe and bakery. All in all, a very positive experience. Robin and Sian

We had a lovely stay. We can only confirm what has already been said about the apartment, the town, the people and the location. Nicole was indeed extremely attentive. One recommendation for those with a head for heights – visit the neighbouring hilltop town of Cairano. But make sure you drive up there by the longer and less steep route.

We chose Calitri because it was close to San Fele where my father was born and to Bisaccia. We enjoyed our stay in the home. The people were very helful and friendly, from the neighbors to the people who worked in the internet cafe, the minimarket, and the bakery. Calitri is a medieval hill town. We felt at times that we were transported back in history.

Nicole’s house was lovely. It had everything we needed for our stay. The house is in the medieval part of Calitri (the borgo). It was an incredibly interesting area. There are two excellent restaurants just up the hill. And most importantly, we found the locals extremely friendly and helpful. We could have stayed longer.

The only downside to our visit was that we had to leave after only a week. After 4 days in the area I commented – “I could go home now and feel that I had a great vacation in Italy.” then it only got better and better as we got to know the old town. Met many many friendly people, both Italian and ex-pats who are lucky enough to spend months here. Will definitely be back! Nicole: thanks for all the personal help that you gave.
