- About The Experience
Two couples or a small family will find themselves at home in this apartment rental in Italy. Located in a small hamlet, this apartment was beautifully renovated out of an old home. Perched on the cliffs of the Amalfi Coast, views stretch from the surrounding hamlet out to the sea. Two bedrooms and two bathrooms offer privacy and comfort and the large private terrace provides a place to take meals (and a glass of wine or two!) at any time of day. Amalfi, Ravello and Positano are just some of the many towns on the coast that can be enjoyed from your location.
- Location Description
The house is situated on the edge of the pretty hamlet of Vettica. Just 300 meters walking distance is a good quality grocery shop and tabacchi shop. The beautiful town of Amalfi is 3.5 kilometers away. Reaching the center of Amalfi is easy as a SITA bus stop is just 50 meters from the house. Here, you’ll find cafes, well known restaurants, food shops, banks, a post office and more. Make time to visit a few treasures of Amalfi including the Duomo di Sant’Andrea Apostolo, the Church of Santa Maria Maggiore and the Museo della Carta, a museum dedicated to the history of paper making! Located in Amalfi is the dock to board ferries or rent boats to visit the coast and reach Positano, Capri, Sorrento, Ischia, Naples and Salerno. The SITA Bus stop to Ravello, Minori, Salerno, Positano and Sorrento is in the center of Amalfi as well.
Please Note: While the Amalfi Coast is beautiful and charming, it is also steep, with many uphill and downhill stairs and walkways. In general, it is an area that is not kind to those of us with knee or mobility issues. This should be considered before booking a property in this area.
Nearby Attractions: The town of Amalfi has winding streets, hidden squares, fragrant gardens and white houses built into to the cliffs. St. Andrew Church, with its pointed arches and modern mosaics is worth a visit and the town is a convenient base for excursions to Capri, Positano, and the Grotta dello Smeraldo. The hilltop village of Ravello has breathtaking views and gardens and hiking trails stretching to nearby Minori. Ravello hosts almost nightly concerts at Villa Rufolo throughout the year and one of Italy's most famous music festivals every July and August, popularly known as the “Wagner Festival”. Visit Paestum with its remarkably preserved Greek temples of Italy or stroll through nearby Positano’s central Piazza dei Mulini.
