The moment we arrived we were welcomed by the owner and knew we'd made the right choice in staying at Tenuta Montelaura. My family and I were having a short break in the Italian countryside and stayed for one night at this hotel. The owner Lello took time out of his Saturday to drive us around Forino and Avenillo as...

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.
