Rosa di Tufo has been the (pink) home of the DeVito family for generations, and offers something outside the typical tourist experience. This open, breezy house is well-suited for those looking to catch their breath: Tufo is a small town in the hills of Campania–close enough to Naples, Pompeii, and the Amalfi Coast to make day trips of them, and yet remote enough that you can feel the sanctuary of it. Off the beaten path: yellow grapes are grown in these hills and turned to white wine, Greco di Tufo.
Rooms start around $40 per night, and you can click here for our listing on AirBnB. There are three rooms in the house, sleeping two each, and a pull-out sofa, so you could get away with upwards of eight people in the house. If you have more in your party and don’t mind getting creative, let’s talk–we have a blow-up bed and a cot we cal pull out too. We have a big, beautiful kitchen we encourage you to use, balconies for each bedroom that look back behind the house across the Sabato River Valley, and a garden.

Gloria and Phil B. and their three kids from Mountainside, NJ: “Wonderful, authentic spot in the heart of Tufo. Away from the hustle and bustle of tourism, yet a great homebase for hotspot sites in the region.”
Kristen and Matt B. from Jupiter, FL, who stayed at Rosa di Tufo as part of their honeymoon trip: “It was amazing! Tufo was literally our favorite portion of the trip! Thank you for everything, and for setting up the meeting with Vito! He and Lina were so sweet and showed us around the whole time! We loved it, thank you! Also, the house was perfect! We loved it!”
Carole and Sarah S. from Chatham, NJ: “First of all, Sarah and I LOVED staying in your family’s ancestral home – what a treat! Thank you, thank you, thank you for this very special shared memory. Everything was just perfect for the two of us. I found the bed I slept in to be very comfortable and the room was quiet and cool, perfect for sleeping. In fact, I slept like a rock every night there. The home is well appointed and the kitchen is modern with all the necessary conveniences to cook a complete meal if you wish. The house is located just steps from the center of town near the church and the main square with lots of little shops and restaurants if you prefer to dine out. We enjoyed dining at the restaurant in the castle at the top of the hill our first evening in Tufo.
“Thinking of our stay in Tufo, the first thing that comes to mind is how much it is truly a “getaway”. The old world charm of both the house and the town provide visitors with a place to experience another culture away from the touristy crowds, yet conveniently located to many of southern Italy’s famous attractions. We loved walking to the market and buying our few food items each day, food is so fresh and delicious. Sipping a cappuccino at the market, touring the local winery, and driving to the nearby hill towns gave us a real taste of the Campania region and all its beauty. We were able to drive to Pompeii and tour the ruins there, a short distance and well worth the trip. Our time in Tufo was too short, bu the memories linger a very long time.”
Darcy B. from Chapel Hill, NC: “What an amazing experience to be in the wonderful, quaint town of Tufo. I felt so welcomed by townfolk and loved walking the beautiful streets and visiting the church as well as the winery. The Rosa di Tufo home is warm, spacious, with a gorgeous view on the extensive porch. It was clearly one of the best vacations I have ever had.”
Virginia and Kenneth P. from Richmond, VA: “Tufo…Authentic small hill town in Italy. A place where time freezes and memories grow. Loved the castle winery, the beautiful piazza with fountain, bar and music. Close enough for day trips to the Amalfi coast and Pompeii. Remembering the crazed excitement when the whole town came out to watch the world cup soccer finals. Italians have a true joy and a gift for making one feel welcome.”
