About Lib Piccirillo

The owners have spent most of their lives in England. However Lib was born in U Casin and came to England as a child. Their ambition has always been to rebuild the derelict farmhouse .Both Lib an d Val are fluent in Italian and before the villa was built visited this location on numerous occasions. They have a good knowledge of the area and would be happy to advise if requested on any aspect of your holiday.

Lib Piccirillo purchased this villa in 2000

Why Lib Piccirillo chose Salerno province

Inherited paternal land and derelictl house in 2000 and re-built from scratch the existing property which has some of the original features incorporated and was completed in 2014.

I love the southern Italian philosophy to life. A very slow pace, a great passion for good food, family centred,the love of people and a positive outlook on everything.

What makes this villa unique

Hillside location in the Campagnian hills.

Remote but still within easy reach of local amenities.

Most of the road to villa is made up of Tarmac, and the last few hundred yards to the villa is a rising farm track.

What a spot!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from U Casin where we spent two wonderful weeks and celebrated our son's 40th birthday.

It was just a wonderful holiday with all our sons and their partners and grandchildren.

The house was great, so spacious and clean and everything you could possibly need. A bottle of Prosecco in the fridge was just what the doctor ordered after a three day journey to get to U Casin travelling on the motorrail!

Lib, Val & Purdey are just great, so kind and helpful - nothing is too much trouble. They helped us get my daughter in law's driving licence sent out to her when my son discovered his driving licence had run out when trying to hire a car!!!!

The view from the terraces is just to die for. It twinkles at night making it really magical and the fireflies were amazing!

We took boat trips to Capri and Positano and the beach at Paestum.

Thank you so much for letting us share your home, and we very much hope to come back one day.

Perfecto !

  • 5 of 5

Terrific week off the beaten track. Literally. Spectacular location, great pool, great views, bats, wild boar...what more do you need for a relaxing week ? Its easy enough to get to pizza places, small mountain towns and supermarkets. Recommend Paestum, Pompeii, Ravello, some spectacular local cave systems and the Amalfi Coast. Lib and Val are very friendly, well informed and unobtrusive hosts and don't forget to make friends with Purdy the guard dog.

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place. The house was clean, very well equipped and perfect for two families as we had a floor each. The pool was fantastic and has wonderful views across the valley and to the mountains. Val and Lib truly were perfect hosts. Their knowledge of the area and the best activities and places to visit made our trip exciting and allowed us to see real Italy. The boat trip along the coast to Amalfi, Pompeii and the Greek temples are totally worth visiting.

I definitely hope to return very soon.

Awesome view

  • 5 of 5

The villa was excellent, the view from the villa and terrace you could never tire of and the hosts Lib, Val and Purdy were lovely. We have never gone back to any of the places we have stayed at, but now it's time to make an exception, we had a fantastic relaxing two weeks and enjoy the pool greatly. When not by the pool loads to do in this lovely region, easy reach to sandy beaches, the mountains, villages, Amalfi Coast and Naples.

just rebooked for next year.......

  • 5 of 5

.......not something i've done for anywhere before. Get a car, enjoy the driving, make sure you eat at I Tre Mulini in Campagna (the homemade hooch is a must). The swimming pool is divine, the neighbours, ie the owners, are just the best. I've told them that the photos don't do the place justice. Enjoy

What's not to love?

  • 5 of 5

A modern villa, recently rebuilt from the owners grandparents house...a rebuild full of love which is clear to see! Lib and Val are the perfect hosts, our visit wouldn't have been the same without their local knowledge. Nothing is too much trouble.

The villa is off the beaten track so a car is a must, but it's a home from home with everything you could need for a break from reality! The pictures of the view do not do it justice, it's absolutely stunning and many hours were sat in the pool or chilling with a drink overlooking it.

Relatively close to tourist attractions, we visited Pompeii which was fascinating(but hot!), Rome was a 3hr drive but well worth it, a boat ride along the Amalfi Coast was simply stunning but poolside days were relaxing which is what we went for. Campagna is a 10min drive and is a gem of a town...not much English is spoken but it's a real taste of Italy.

We can't fault our stay, and for the first time in years of travelling we have found somewhere we would return to!
