The apartment is 3 kilometres east of the town of Amalfi. Amalfi town is overcrowded on most days so better out of town than in it. The apartment itself is spacious and has two great decks that overlook the coast east and west with views a good 20 kilometres across the bay - that alone makes it special. There were only two of us in the place so the deck off the master bedroom was the morning and afternoon deck of choice. It is protected and the daily parade of boats going by is mesmerizing. There is a natural rock arch below the apartment that draws lots of boating action. The kitchen is functional and is sparsely equipped - we like to cook and did three of our four nights. We were hiking so we’re without a car - not sure you would want one as driving is difficult. Groceries are a planning event and you can bus or walk into Amalfi for fresh meat, poultry, fish and other staples. We had our driver stop in Minori on the way in to pick up groceries and meat at two different places. There is great fresh fish in Amalfi every AM and a functional barbecue on the upper deck for cooking. There are also two restaurants a short walk up the Main Street from the apartment - we tried one - the pizza, fish place and it was excellent. Make reservations. It was a lovely visit and by far the most beautiful location of our 4 stops along the coast. We would definitely stay here again.
Stayed with spouse - Recommended to friends and family
The road to get to novella (the town this unit is in) is quiet dangerous. We drove from Naples and followed the owners directions. WARNING do not drive the road at night It is a narrow single lane road up a mountain range via switch backs and NO street lights. This should be declared on the listing by the owner. While the listings says 4 miles to the beach, it does not say you must scale the mountains to get there. After we arrived we enjoyed the peace and quiet but won't stay there again or recommend to anyone Note: units are single loft units with adjoining door Not a true 2 bedroom which was also a surprise Cell phone reception is poor Must be outside to make or receive a call
