About the area:
Valva is an old village of medieval origin with about 2,000 inhabitants. It lies in the High Sele Valley on a calcareous protrusion dominated by the enchanting Villa of the Marquises d’Ayala-Valva and has a wonderful view on the Valley. “Over seventeen hectares wide, Villa d’Ayala of Valva… is considered, even by treatises of botany, as one of the most beautiful and flourishing in Italy” (from the magazine “Bell’Italia”, April 1995).
In summer, in the charming Amphitheatre of Villa d’Ayala, famous theatrical shows and concerts are performed by the most prestigious and famed international artists. Other attractions are “the taratella festival” of Valva and “the truffle festival”, held in the neighbouring village of Colliano in October. It is an excellent starting point for trips to the nearby WWF oases, to the hot springs of Contursi and to the surrounding mountains.
Trips with jeeps and local guide are available. You can easily reach Paestum, Amalfi, Positano, Sorrento, Pompei and Naples in less than one hour thanks to the Salerno-Reggio Calabria motorway.
The countryside in Campania is ideal for those looking to experience true Italian flavor with locals who are still totally untouched by tourism. Knowing some Italian is a good idea before coming here, but most people can make due.
