Bed & Breakfast Domus Laeta
In The National Park of Cilento

Giungano - Salerno - Campania - Italy

Domus Laeta, the ancient home of the aristocratic family Aulisio is a large dwelling place which still keeps the aura and charm of its past. Located in the small town of Giungano, Domus Laeta is within the UNESCO National Park of Cilento, province of Salerno, and faces south with a fascinating distant view of the sea. The building, one of the most ancient in the village, is next to the main square and the Church. It is three floors high and sits atop a terraced garden with an orchard and vineyard overlooking the valley; a typical Italian country mansion, well equipped to run autonomously. Domus Laeta has kept its XVII century structure with watch-towers and loop-holes along the walls, stables and mangers, an oil-mill built of stone, cellars and bread ovens.   An old reservoir by a spring-water well, in the open and panoramic garden, has been turned into a swimming pool with hydromassage. This elegant house has always belonged to the same family, whose memories are still visible in furniture, objects of art, archives, library with old and rare books (about 3,000 volumes).
