Villa Amelia is a small house in a rural hamlet near the town of SantElia, close to Cassino and the world famous Montecassino. The house has stunning views of the monastery over the valley and is situated in the picturesque village of Portella.

The space

This little house is an ideal base for anyone wishing to combine a trip to a authentic rural setting with easy access to Rome, the monastery of Montecassino, an easy drive to Naples, Vesuvius, Herculaneum and the awesome Amalfi Coast. The beach is approximately an hours drive away.
If you want to hang around the village, you'll find the house extremely comfy with loads of outdoor space to soak up some of that Mediterranean sun.
There is a small shop stocking the essentials, a pizzeria and bar which is open in the evenings.

Guest access

There is a lot of private ground around the house and a small cultivated veg garden - please help yourself and use the plum tomatoes to make your own fresh "Sugo" (pasta sauce).
There is a south facing patio space at the back of the house where guests will be able to enjoy the sun, a cocktail or 2 and the view ... enjoy!

Other things to note

This is a genuine working village in Southern Italy where you will find people going about their day to day business, which is for the most part agricultural. You will find lovely fresh food, local wine and great coffee and gelato! Enjoy ...

A lovely spot to sit back and admire the beautiful scenary with a fantastic view of Montecassino from the balcony. Everything you need is there, Catherine is a great communicator and the neighbours who look after the place are extremely helpful and friendly. The accommodation was exactly as she described it. We had a great time.

This is a great little house in a traditional Italian village. It's been very nicely renovated with a modern kitchen, comfortable beds a relaxing sitting room and a wonderful balcony that captures the sun all day and has a terrific view out over the valley to Montecassino. The neighbours are friendly, there's a very welcoming little pizzeria just a few minutes walk down the road, and the village shop is surprisingly well stocked. Naples and Pompeii are about an hour's drive away, as are the beaches at Gaeta. You can do a day trip to Rome by train from Cassino station. And if you want peace and quiet you can just wander up one of the tracks through the olive groves behind the village. Catherine and Angelo gave us lots of useful information on what to see and do. We had a really relaxing time there and would love to go back.

L'alloggio e' gradevole e ristrutturato, anche se non ancora finito nei dettagli. La vista è splendida e le campane della chiesa un piacevole intermezzo. Manca la TV, ma è ben sostituita dalla radio presente, purtroppo la lavatrice si trova in posizione scomoda e in pessime condizioni esterne, ma funziona. Ottimo per brevi soggiorni, un po' più impegnativo sul lungo periodo

About Catherine

Hi -
I'm Catherine and I'm married to Angelo. We have 4 kids - two, Dominic & Paul, are living at home with us and the others are currently living in Toronto. I am Canadian born, but have lived in Scotland forever and Angelo is an Italian-Scot, Leith born and bred, of Italian parents.
We have spent most of our working lives in the catering business - first of all we had a deli in the Royal Mile and now I'm working in product development management for a small independent retailer.
My real passion is for interiors and I love finding fun ways to upgrade old pieces of furniture and artifacts to give them a new lease of life.
We have a big family centred living space which we love to share. We hope you can come and stay with us sometime - we will make you very welcome!
