Beautiful house in a lovely, quiet village
The house was far above what we expected. The garden is large, private, with plenty of shade, sunshine, loungers, chairs and tables. The interior of the house is very large, and wonderfully cool due to thick walls, which was very welcome in the summer heat. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

“Un esempio di ospitalità”
Ho trascorso un piacevolissimo weekend con il mio fidanzato presso Villa Mimosa. Una struttura fantastica e molto curata nei dettagli. I proprietari sono stati molto disponibili e ci hanno fatto sentire casa, trasmettendo la passione che mettono nella cura e nella gestione della struttura. Consigliato :)

Soggiorno perfetto
Ho regalato un soggiorno di tre notti presso Villa Mimosa a due coppie di amici venuti a visitare Salerno. La struttura mi ha colpita fin da subito per la sua localizzazione - in un grande parco verde - e per la bellezza e la cura degli spazi e degli arredi. Queste impressioni sono state confermate dai miei amici, che hanno vissuto giorni di assoluto relax e tranquillità. Poi la cortesia e la disponibilità dello staff, in particolare di Roberto, sono stati senza dubbio il valore aggiunto di questa breve vacanza. Grazie a Villa Mimosa, il soggiorno dei miei amici è stato perfetto ed ho fatto un figurone. Consigliato!

una Reggia tutta per noi
Siamo una cooperativa sociale che lavora nella disabilità ed abbiamo approfittato di questa casa incantevole per la nostra vacanza (eravamo in 11) in Campania. Tantissime camere, molte con bagno interno ed una cucina al piano terra dir poco spettacolare: mobili di pregio e tutte le comodità immaginabili con un giardino immenso dove passavamo la maggior parte delle serate Il proprietario Donato si è dimostrato molto disponibile e molto sensibile alle nostre esigenze "un po' particolari". A questo prezzo credevamo fosse impossibile avere così tanto!!!

Italian old style in a traditional and unspoiled mountain village.
Very helpful owners. Great access to the sights of the area. Beautifully kept villa. House designed to be cool in the summer with no need for air conditioning so a bit too cool in early April but new central heating and log fire coped eventually. A very memorable, unique and beautiful place.

Soooo convenient
I travelled to Southern Italy in October 2013 as part of a group of nine people ranging in age from 11 to retirement age. We were very lucky to find Villa Mimosa on Tripadvisor. Donato (whose wife owns the property) was very helpful with local information (e.g. shopping and an internet café). The house itself is amazing, It is certainly large enough for a diverse group, there are two en suite shower rooms plus a family bathroom, additionally the loft room has an en suite loo/basin/bidet. The kitchen has everything you need but we had most of our meals in a little local restaurant where prices were such good value that there was no need to self cater. The house has great atmosphere with a working fireplace (guests are allowed to use wood from the garden) and masses of period detail. The garden is enormous, there are century old trees and a BBQ (which we did not use). Even at the end of October the weather was warm enough for us to have our breakfast in the garden. The village is quiet but you can get all the staples e.g. grocers's, butcher's, pharmacy etc. You will need to hire a car but it is easy to get to from the airport to Calvanico and from there to all the main sights. Staying at the end of October we felt it was very good value too. I could not recommend it highly enough.

Beautiful Villa
We had a lovely stay at this villa. The rooms were large and well-equipped, the beds comfortable, the heating worked well and there was plenty of hot water. It was very clean and the garden is immense and very beautiful with fruit trees (pomegranates, grapes, apples, oranges) and fresh herbs growing. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful, saying we could help ourselves to anything growing fresh in the garden and explaining about the shops and general life in the village and tips about getting to the many attractions of this beautiful area. We hope we will be back very soon!

Un'oasi tra i monti
Villa mimosa è un oasi di pace, di storia e tranquillità. Immersa nel verde dei Monti Picentini, fa parte di un complesso gentilizio del XVI secolo ed è la parte che è stata restaurata con cura e sapienza dai proprietari. Il suggestivo resto del complesso ha il fascino del castello in rovina. I materiali usati per il restauro hanno tenuto conto del passato della splendida villa, e si fondono con il contesto in cui si trovano. Il paese è piccolo e grazioso e sono presenti market, ristoranti, la farmacia anche se si trova vicino all'autostrada e con venti minuti, per qualsiasi eventualità si raggiunge Salerno o altri paesi vicini. l'interno della villa ha un arredo sobrio e delicato, la zona giorno molto ampia e godibile mentre le camere al piano superiore hanno una luce bellissima ed intensa e si gode un riposo straordinario, privo di rumori. Una vacanza quella a Villa Mimosa che riporta all'essenziale, alla serenità, senza privare dei normali confort. Il giardino, 1500 mt deliziosamente curati, con uno splendido frutteto dove abbiamo potuto gustare i frutti che il proprietario ci ha incoraggiato a raccogliere. Sono gentilissimi il signor Donato e suo figlio e a disposizione per qualsiasi eventualità. Per noi è stato un viaggio di completo relax perchè conosciamo bene la campania, ma Villa Mimosa può essere un'ottima base per raggiungere la Costiera, i paesi vesuviani, Pompei ed Ercolano, Napoli e Salerno.
