We stayed in Villa Rizzo for 2 nights. What an awesome place. 10 minutes from Salerno and the beginning of the Amalfi Coast. Situated on a citrus farm, with SPA and swimming pool. We loved it so much, we had to really motivate ourselves to go on to Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast drive. Very friendly staff and highly recommended. You get what you pay for.

We travelled with 8 in our group. The property houses a few different "apartments" and is full of fruit trees and scenic views. There is a beautiful pool with bar area and a small restaurant for guests only. The rooms themselves are clean and new.
You feel like you are in the middle of the country and can fully relax, there are no cities etc. in walking distance and would need a car. There is a spa area also but we didn't have time to use it. I would highlyrecommend this property if it works into your travels.

we found this place purely by accident in a guide book from another hotel we stayed at
what a magical surprise
set in an olive and Hazenlut grove high in the hills about 15km south of Salerno
Quiet, Refined,Magical Aromas. Delightful Rooms with views of the Mountains and Distant towns. Great Breakfast,delightful and helpful staff.
The Pool and poolside area ideal for lazing around.
We didn't take advantage of the wellness center as we were out and about every day but it certainly looked great
Only draw back GPS sent us the most difficult route via Sanmango disregard and take Pontecagnano exit bit longer but more direct
well worth it
Check out La Locanda Restaurant about 1 Km from Villa excellent

Room Tip: we were there in May. Not so Busy then

We chose Villa Rizzo because it was on our route north from Sicily, and because we could book it through Venere - the ONLY booking site I use for Europe. I had become frustrated by the Tripadvisor app on my iPad.

From its listing, Villa Rizzo looked nice, but not the homey "bed an breakfast" type of place we normally choose. We planned to stay just one night, then proceed to an agriturismo. What a glorious surprise. As soon as we drove in, met Roberta at reception, and saw our room and view, we canceled the stay for the following night at the agriturismo, and stayed a second night. I cannot begin to describe how lovely the area is. Villa Rizzo is in the middle of an active citrus grove, with large gorgeous fruit hanging off the trees. A large male peacock wanders around the public areas, as does an assertive rooster. In a pen a fragrance-free distance from the buildings holds large wild boar I suspect is being fattened for some future feast, and several large ducks I was relieved to see were not on the menu, and were free to roam.

This is a luxury resort. The room we stayed in, Neco 1, was lovely, with an excellent bed, and a balcony and view of the valley. It had a huge roll-down screen so you could enjoy the fresh air at night, sans mosquitoes. The Internet signal was good, but like one other we encountered, requiring of Windows operating systems - you need to keep a window open to sustain connection for long. It is NOT hospitable to iPad or iPhone/iTouch. Breakfast was nice, adequate, but nothing terribly special. The breads and sweets were all made on premises, as was the juice. If you expect cheese and meat, as did some German tourists, you would be disappointed by the choice and quantities on offer. As Americans, we didn't miss it, and enjoyed what was on offer. Sandy, who loves cappuccinos, was pleased.

Just driving around the Villa Rizzo area is a great pleasure.

We were here in early October, and there was only one other couple staying here. The place felt desolate. Maybe it is better in the summer. The site is gorgeous - the grounds are really beautiful. Lovely pool, nice buildings, peacocks and roosters roaming around. However, it is not near anything. Not a thing. In the early fall (still 75 degrees out) the area felt like a ghost town. The two nights we were there, the on-site restaurant was not open and we had to eat at an even more bizarre hotel down the road. The breakfast was some bread and a few various types of jellies. Terrible coffee - which is strange in Italy.
It is not near Salerno - it is a 20 minute drive to Salerno with no traffic. You are not close to any attractions or sites. If you want to go and sit by a pool or just rest, the hotel is good for that. We did sleep well.
The staff leaves a lot to be desired. They were not very helpful or warm. They are difficult to track down as well. We waited around to check out, and no one was in the office for quite some time. We ultimately just had to leave our key on the desk because we couldn't wait anymore.
A few other things - the surrounding "village" is a non-descript suburb with a large amount of industrial buildings. Also, the roosters are loud and my husband heard a wolf fight at night. It sounds strange, but true.
