A very special home in a very special area of Italy

Indawo
Villa Daphne is a 150-year-old stone cottage secluded in a tiny hillside hamlet just outside of the small mountain village of Santa Maria del Molise (population:660) in the region of Molise . It's just 2 hours from Rome, 1.5 hrs from Napoli, Pompei and the beautiful Amalfi coast: just to mention a few of the many major tourist attractions within easy reach. It is the most wonderful base-camp for your Italian holiday!

ABOUT THE AREA - U.S.Today wrote: “The region of Molise, located in central-southern Italy, offers small-town Italian life tucked between the major tourist draws of Abruzzo and Puglia. While Molise lacks major cities and the colossal sites of its neighbors, its rich Sannite and Roman heritage and the churches and castles of its principal towns offer visitors an authentic view of life in Italy's countryside.”

ABOUT THE VILLAGE
My village , Santa Maria del Molise, will give you the chance to experience the Real Italy while still being able to visit the major tourist attractions. The local people here are honest and helpful, some even speak english having returned ‘home’ after immigrating after WW2. The village church has a spring-fed stream in front where the local women still meet to hand-wash their clothes (luckily, you have a new washing machine at Villa Daphne!!) There is also a coffee bar and a wonderful little restaurant in the piazza in front of the church) You can have a picnic on the grass or use the tables next to the little waterfalls and the mill at the entrance to the village.
Luigi’s shop is the closest of 2 shops in the village and is only about 5 minutes walk from Villa Daphne, where you can buy wines, local olive oil, bread, salami, tobacco, etc. He also fills gas bottles.He speaks english and can help you if you get stuck!
The snow-capped Campitello Matese with its ski slopes and mountain tracks, only 20 minutes away across the valley.
There is a limited postal & health service in the village but the nearest town of Bojano (7km) has a large Saturday morning street market, and some big supermarkets like LIDL, a very good hospital, etc.
The nearest city is Isernia(15km) where the interstate trains leave from.
As the village has limited public transport access, you will need your own wheels to get there, and get around. Petrol and GPL service stations are nearby on the main road.

Lonely Planet's Abruzzo & Molise chapter from the Italy guidebook

Italy - Abruzzo & Molise

Sometimes a visit to Abruzzo and Molise feels like a trip back to the 1950s, with wheezing trains, ruined farmhouses and poppy-filled fields. Walkers share the region’s paths with sheep dogs, mountain goats and abundant bird life.

- breath in the pure mountain air of Campitello Matese,
- keep an eye out for rare Marsican bears while hiking in the Parco Nazionale d’Abruzzo, Lazio e Molise!
Visit Campobasso, the ruins of Saepinum (Sepino), Isernia, Termoli and Albanian Towns.

I'm an Australian english teacher who's lived and taught in Italy for 20 years. Villa Daphne has been lovingly restored by me. Let me show you a piece of Real Italy! No tourist traps, no crime, no hassles! I use it as an artist's retreat ( the view from the terrace is inspiring!) but you can use it as a stepping stone to the many nearby tourist attractions - returning there to catch your breath !
