Your chance to try Villa Velius before you buy

3 year trial ownerships now available for just £8,500

(Limited to just 10 places)

Why try before you buy?

Experience the full benefits of ownership

We thought it would be a great idea to put aside some space in our newly restored luxury country house and give a select few the chance to live like owners for one week a year, each year, for 3 years. During your time, should la dolce vita take hold, you may decide to become a co-owner of one of our incredible houses or luxury apartments.

Test-drive fractional ownership

If you’re undecided about the concept of co-owning a vacation home, we get it. That’s why we’re giving you the chance to test-drive it.

Live like a local

Discover the true essence of Italian culture as you live among locals, experiencing the customs, cuisine, traditions & events firsthand.

Quality of our properties

We go to great lengths to create exceptional properties you can’t wait to share with friends & family.

How it works

Three opportunities to experience Italy as a Pinelli owner, enjoy use of the property and decide whether co-ownership is for you.

Can’t bear to leave us?

OK, so what's the catch?

Well, in the interest of full disclosure, there’s no obligation to buy at any point during your buy & try term. But, saying goodbye may not be easy.

If you consider that a catch, you’ve got us.

Can I stay longer than a week each time?

Want to linger longer? Just ask. Owners get preferential rental rates.

This exceptional-priced opportunity allows you to test-drive one week’s ownership per year for three years. It cannot be used all at once, but as mentioned above, if you wish to spend longer at Villa Velius, we’ll happily check availability for the best rental rates to bolt on to your booked week.

Of course! This beautiful 4-bed, 4-bath country house sleep a maximum of 8 people, so as long as you don’t exceed this number, invite away!

This trial ownership is uniquely yours and is non-transferable.

Arrive at Villa Velius after 3:00 pm and on the day you leave, the check-out time is 10:00 am.

Italy is famous for delicious food, and Salerno is no exception. You can choose whether to dine at the wondeful local restaurants or buy mouth-watering fresh ingredients and enjoy the fully-equipped kitchen, with all the mod-cons required to elevate your relaxed night on the covered dining terrace.
