Villa Avellino is located on the promontory overlooking the promenade of Pozzuoli. Dating back to 1540, after a careful restoration carried out in the name of historical-architectural respect and energy saving, the building is now used as a residence, with suites and apartments furnished with simple elegance and equipped with every comfort.
Villa Avellino History
From its privileged position Villa Avellino dominates the seafront of Pozzuoli, just minutes from the most famous archaeological sites of Campania and the main public transport stations. Built in 1540 by Marcantonio Colonna, Prince of Stigliano and Viceroy of Sicily, it was then owned, for a short period, by the Benedictine fathers. With the suppression of the Order of the Congregation of Montevergine the building passed into the hands of the dukes of Lusciano until 1836. After being of other noble families, the villa and the adjoining garden were declared of particular interest by the Ministry of environmental heritage and cultural and then subject to the supervision of the Superintendent.
A careful restoration work completed in 2011 has restored the entire complex, keeping intact its architectural features but at the same time making it highly comfortable and respectful of the environment and energy saving with modern engineering systems.
In the foundations of the structure is incorporated a cistern of Roman times, called "Lusciano pool", while the building has a characteristic eighteenth-century structure, with a central courtyard with overlapping arches. On the façade there is a portal with piperno bunkers, while the hanging garden rests on structures from the Roman period.
Guests can stay in one of the Palazzo's apartments or suites: ample space, brightness, modern furnishings and spectacular views of the centuries-old garden are complemented by modern comforts. Each apartment has a fully equipped kitchen, wi-fi internet connection and air conditioning. Also in the Residence there is a fully equipped 200 sqm gym to keep fit even on vacation,
The guest feels at home at all times, with the advantage of being able to live a relaxing stay in a historic house with a century-old charm, immersed in one of the most picturesque gulfs of the Gulf, with magnificent views of the islands of Ischia, Capri, Nisida and Procida.
