Great location away from the crowds of tourists in Amalfi. All attractions are easily accessible.
The most enjoyable aspect of the villa is the view across the valley which is wonderful. Husband and I and 2 children have really enjoyed our week here. The accommodation was spacious and included everything we needed, it was clean and the kitchen fully equipped. Drains were a bit smelly at times and some of the furnishings a bit tired. It was comfortable nonetheless. Claudio and his son Riccardo were very helpful and friendly. We all loved the pool and the outdoor areas were perfect for those days when you just want to relax. Sorrento and Pompei were really easily accessible but Amalfi appears to suffer greatly from dire traffic and severe lack of parking. Getting the bus/boat there is probably a better bet than driving. Overall a great time was had by all and I would recommend it.
grazie Joanna sono contento che hai apprezzato la disponibilita' e l'accoglienza di Casa vacanze
Beautiful Villa with stunning Views
My family stayed in the villa and had an amazing week. Remote destination away from the hustle of busy tourist areas, but close enough for days spent on the Almfai Coast, Maiori and Minori. Claudio and his son Ricardo were very accommodating for our requests and give great suggestions for things to do during our stay. Would need a car to travel to/ from Villa. A boat from Salerno Port was the most relaxing way to see the beautiful coastline.
We would love to come back.
thanks for the nice review. I am happy that you enjoyed our hospitality, as I have the availability you have demonstrated. I wish you all the best with the hope of having you again welcome guests
Rustic Apartment in the Hills
The apartment is located in a beautiful setting, with panoramic views of the surrounding hills and villages. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The owner, his wife and son are friendly and helpful. We had a few issues, namely that a number of items included in the itinerary were missing, after pointing these out, all but one, namely a microwave were provided. The television developed a serious fault and was replaced. The en-suite shower to the main bedroom developed a fault and was not repaired. At the beginning of our second week the water in the pool turned green and could not be used for the remainder of the holiday. The apartment does not have air conditioning and during our first week the rooms were fairly comfortable, when the maximum outside temperature was between 24 and 27 degrees, however the maximum outside temperature increased to 32 degrees in the second week and the room temperature was not so comfortable. It should be noted that due to the profusion of vegetation around the apartment, there a a high possibility of being bitten by insects. The patio/barbecue area is pleasant, but spoilt by an infestation of ants. The drive up to the apartment from Cava di Tirreni is difficult, due to the lack of signposts, narrow twisting roads and the temperament of the local drivers.
Beautiful hilltop apartment
Lovely clean apartment, full of character and perfectly sized and equipped for the four of us. Delightful terrace garden with views south down to the coast, sunny in early morning but nicely shady in the heat of the day. Great pool and sun terrace (above apartment, shared with villa), larger than we had expected and fantastic to cool off in after a days sightseeing.
Great location to explore Campania but car essential; 10-15 minutes from apartment down twisty narrow streets to the autostrada, then loads of interest within easy striking distance.
Very friendly and helpful owners, quick to resolve any queries or issues.
Would thoroughly recommend this property.
This is the place to stay if you want a relaxing holiday in a quiet location that is within easy reach of the Amalfi coast and vesuvius.
A car is essential but there is a great restaurant and cornerstore nearby.
The whole area is very Italian and a pleasant break from the touristy coastal areas.
The pool and garden are gorgeous and the house airy and shaded by the roof overhang, the owners are charming and helpful.
Grazie per la bella recensione, ma soprattutto felice che il soggiorno sia stato di vostro gradimento e avete trascorso un felice week, spero di avervi ancora graditi ospiti.
"The accomodation has bee...
"The accomodation has been designed to a high standard and is a mix of rustic and modern. The outside kichen area was great and both the kitchens are well equiped. The pool is on an upper level shared with the main villa which is nice as it makes this villa more secluded. There is a very thin dirt track which you have to drive on to get to the accomodation which is set in beautiful woodland and allows you the succlusion. At night you can see the fire flies dancing and during the day you have a stunning view accross the valley overlooking the village of Cava. A car is esential to make the best of your stay and the accomodation is in easy reach of the almalfi coast line, naples, pompei and salerno. The owner is very friendly and helpful. For a relaxing holiday for peace and tranquility this villa is highly recommended."
