We chose to overnight here due to the good reviews on this site. We really wondered if we had gone to the wrong hotel! The owners are very nice, but extremely scruffily dressed and didn't change their clothes while we were there. The rooms are basic, but comfortable and clean. However, we were expecting a wonderful dinner in a family... More

Lello and Flavia go out of their way to make you feel welcome at Tenuta Montelaura. Flavia's amazing cooking and willingness to show you how to make home made pasta or pizza was an unexpected bonus. Lello can take you to different wineries in the area and has a vast knowledge of the local wines. Overall, it was a wonderful... More

Tenuta Montelaura was everything we hoped for and more. Our family was welcomed with superb hospitality and a stupendous meal. We quickly became friends with our beautiful hosts enjoying wonderful conversations over a traditional Italian breakfast. The rooms were spacious, clean and extremely comfortable. The grounds were surrounded by stunning hills with breathtaking views. One could enjoy a glass of... More

This is a good ariturismo experience. It is a working farm, and the family lives and works here. The building is modern, only 10-15 years old, but it has a more rustic feel. The room can get a little dark and chilly in the offseason, though is it spotlessly maintained and large, with a lovely balcony. The bathrooms are fine.... More

Our stay at Tenuta Montelaura was wonderful. We visited in early October 2010 and stayed 3 days and 2 nights. Lello and Flavia were warm, friendly, and accommodating. Our room was large, clean, and comfortable. We enjoyed walking around the grounds where they have a chestnut tree orchard. Each evening, we enjoyed a multiple course home-cooked traditional meal. It is... More

We visited for 2 nights in early August 2011, and had a wonderful time. Flavia and Raphael are lovely hosts and very welcoming. Our room was on the top floor, corner suite and had a wonderful cross breeze for our afternoon naps! Tenuta is located a short drive (30 mins) from the busy port of Naples and we were very... More

Our visit was during the record rains of November. While the pictures showed sunshine and green, we missed that. The trade-off was a wonderful experience anyway. We have stayed in owner-run B&B's in the US but Lello and Flavia took much greater interest in seeing that we had a nice visit than is typical of other places we have stayed.... More

We spent 3 nights during a 2-week wine and sight seeing vacation. Flavia is an excellent cook and Lello (a sommolier) knows his wines. He not only provided information about the wines of the area, but also guided us to several special wineries and visits with the winemakers--which made for an unforgettable day.

I spent two nights at Tenuta Montelaura in early November 2010. I was only one of two guests and I got a great room that could have easily fit a family of 4. Most of my time was spent visiting friends in the area, but i did spend one evening in. It turned out to be an incredibly rain storm... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tenuta Montelaura è un agriturismo in Campania, provincia di Avellino, a Forino. La struttura è immersa nel verde del proprio parco botanico e si può godere di una ristorazione tipica tradizionale con prodotti propri all'insegna dell'abbinamento con i prestigiosi vini di questa terra, come il Fiano di Avellino, il greco di Tufo ed il Taurasi. Si organizzano inoltre, wine-tours nelle piccole cantine d'eccellenza della Campania e dell'Irpinia. La collocazione geografica è ottimale, infatti pur essendo lontano dal caos delle grandi città della regione Campania,ci troviamo a 20 minuti da Salerno e dalla Costiera Amalfitana, a trenta da Napoli, a quarantacinque dalla Reggia di Caserta. ... more   less
