Im September 2016 haben wir zu fünft etwas mehr als 2 sehr erholsame Wochen in der schönen Landschaft Süditaliens in der Villa Conti in Riardo verbracht.
Riardo selbst ist ein charmanter kleiner Ort etwa 40 km nördlich von Caserta und 65 km nördlich von Neapel mit einem mittelalterlichen Stadtkern und einem Kastell. Man erreicht von dort viele Sehenswürdigkeiten in Kampanien und am Golf von Neapel in ca. 1h, so dass sich die Villa auch als Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge in die Umgebung sehr gut eignet.
Touristen verirren sich wohl eher selten nach Riardo, zumindest hatten wir das Gefühl zu der Zeit die Einzigen zu sein und konnten so Urlaub weit entfernt vom Massentourismus machen. Dennoch gibt es in Riardo alles was man benötigt: Mehrere kleine Supermärkte sowie einen größeren und einige Pizzerien, Restaurants und Bars mit wirklich sehr günstigen Preisen. Auch wenn kaum jemand dort Englisch oder gar Deutsch sprach, waren alle sehr freundlich und interessiert und versuchten uns mit Händen und Füßen alles zu erklären.
Die Villa Conti ist ein sehr hübsches liebevoll eingerichtetes Ferienhaus, das etwas südlich des Ortskerns von Riardo liegt. Den Ort erreicht man zu Fuß bequem in ca. 10 Minuten. Die Villa verfügt über zwei Doppelzimmer und ein Schlafzimmer für weitere 4-6 Personen (eher ein Kinderzimmer mit Doppelstockbetten). Die beiden Schlafzimmer im Obergeschoss erlauben aus ihren Fenstern oder von der sehr schönen umlaufenden Terrasse übrigens einen herrlichen Blick über Riardo.
Auch sonst verfügt das frisch renovierte Haus über alles was man benötigt, vor allem einen schönen Pool im liebevoll gestalteten Garten. Ein besonderes Highlight war für uns der holzbefeuerte Steinofen, den wir zum traditionellen Pizzabacken nutzen konnten. Unbedingt ausprobieren, auch wenn es ein wenig dauert und dem ungeübten Deutschen etwas Improvisationstalent abverlangt! Aber natürlich gibt es auch einen Grill.
Unser Vermieter Paolo kümmerte sich wirklich um alles. Gleich nach der Ankunft startete er mit einigen von uns eine kleine Tour durch Riardo zu allen wichtigen Anlaufpunkten (Supermärkte, Restaurants usw.). Auch danach kam er mehrmals pro Woche vorbei, um nach dem Rechten zu sehen, den Pool zu reinigen und uns in allen aufkommenden Fragen weiterzuhelfen. Da er hervorragend englisch spricht, konnten wir uns auch prima unterhalten. Außerdem macht er einen richtig guten Wein, von dem er uns bei jedem Besuch gern einige Kostproben überließ.
Danke für die schöne Zeit!
When we arrived last September for our first visit to Villa Conti, we had come to Riardo to look for a pretty venue for our wedding reception. As Paulo was giving us his welcoming tour of the Villa and gardens, we quickly realised that this, right here, was exactly what we had envisioned!! Paulo and Eleonora very kindly agreed to let us host the reception at the Villa and helped us to realise our dream over the next few months. Their enthusiasm and thoughtfulness was endless and we’re happy to say that throughout the planning and execution of our celebrations, they have become very great friends. The garden, already beautiful, was transformed into something quite magical and oh so romantic – with flowers, billowing voiles and ribbons around the gazebo, candles and lanterns, wonderful food and great music. The ceremony led by the delightful Mayor at the Municipale was just as we’d hoped (thank you Paulo for interpreting!), the bars and the villagers were generous in their congratulations and thanks to Eleonora’s persistence and hard work we were able to enjoy a traditional, intimate, rustic yet very elegant wedding reception. We cannot thank them enough. We were able to relax and enjoy the rest of our stay, taking advantage of the new pool, newly decorated Villa and drinking yet more of Paulo’s wine (even better this year!). We will return (hopefully in November) as Paulo and Eleonora, Villa Conti and of course our family and friends in Riardo have a hold on us!!
We spent a magical week at the beautiful Villa Conti with our four teenage children The photos really do not do it justice; it was a beautiful, peaceful oasis and it was hard to tear ourselves away from the garden, pool and glorious view of Riardo castle in order to go sightseeing! The villa is well equipped and beautifully clean, beds upstairs are very comfortable and the garden is well lit to sit out at night looking at the stars and listening to the cicadas; we made good use of the pizza oven and bbq! Paulo, the owner was fantastic - when our travel plans changed at the last minute he went out of his way to ensure we could get into the villa at a time that suited us and he and his wife Eleanora were charming and friendly from booking throught to deposit refund. We will definitely be returning if we can!
We have a young family (4 yr and 2 yr daughters) and Villa Conti was perfect for us. We enjoyed a mixture of family time at the Villa and day excursions to Pompeii and Sorrento.
The Villa is a family home and has a wonderful feel - very welcoming and relaxing. It is meticulously maintained and is very clean. We think we are very fussy but could not fault it. As this is not a popular tourist area prices are extremely reasonable (cheap day to day cost). Access to major tourist attractions is very easy - Rome and Amalfi can be done easily.
What made our holiday truly special however was the warm welcome we recieved from Paulo. Nothing was too much trouble.
We will be returning because as a family we all had a great time. Book your holiday at Villla Conti Now!
Having spent two blissful weeks here in the summer, we thought we'd return in the winter to see whether it was just as enjoyable. It was!! The villa was warm and cosy, Paulo had left us plenty of logs (and wine!) and we had a lovely, restful week. We were blessed with some bright sunny days so were out and about, but the time spent at the villa was so peaceful and relaxing - a lovely fire, good wine, background music and plenty to read. Perfect. Again, we found the village shopkeepers and neighbours charming, friendly and helpful and we have a slightly better grasp of the language which was appreciated!! We'll be back in June as this has the feel of home from home. We should be so lucky!!!
I write this somewhat reluctantly, since I’d rather keep this to myself! However, not being the selfish type I have to say that Villa Conti is, without a doubt, absolutely stunning. Set in an area of outstanding beauty and tranquillity, for anyone wanting to escape the madness of modern life this is the perfect place to be. The villa itself is beautiful; comfortably appointed and quiet, set amongst vineyards and manicured gardens. There are any number of lovely spots to sit and read, either in sun or shade, or to look out over the surrounding mountains and the magnificent castle. Then of course is the swimming pool, amongst the vines with spectacular views. Perfection!
We came to Riardo to visit family and plan a wedding. Paulo threw himself into this idea with such enthusiasm, had so many suggestions and offers of help that within a few days we seemed to have everything sewn up (helped by cousins who work in the Municipale!)
Paulo, honestly, could not have done more to make us welcome and continued to be helpful throughout our 2 week stay (though was never intrusive). The walk into the village is comfortable (although not recommended at noon in 34°!) and all of the beauty spots in the region are a reasonable car journey away. There is a collection of shops in the village where you can buy all of your basic needs and the shopkeepers are absolutely thrilled if you have a go at speaking their language. Don’t be shy, they really appreciate it!
We will return to Villa Conti next year to be married in this beautiful little village, with its beauty, charm, old-fashioned values, courtesy and hospitality. I quite imagine that we’ll return on a very regular basis, until we can retire there to live the dream.
