The Basilius apartment is conveniently located in the heart of Amalfi (about 90 steps from road level) and among many wonderful attractions. Basilius is newly furnished, with all the modern comforts one would expect. The apartment is composed of a double bedroom, living room with double sofa bed, fitted kitchen with microwave and fridge, bathroom with Jacuzzi shower, and a beautiful terrace equipped with table, chairs and electric awning. From the terrace you can admire the skyline of Amalfi, which includes the sea, the bell tower of the famous St. Andrea church, and the surrounding mountains that are dotted with houses.
Basilius is sit...uated in the area of the San Basilio convent, which was founded in the 11th Century outside the walls of town, in a district called Casamare. The San Basilio convent was built for noble Amalfi women and was under the protection of the order of St. Benedict. Over the years the nuns' former living quarters have been transformed into apartments. In one wing there are small flats that give way to a long corridor, which retains its monastic atmosphere. The little church of St. Basilio remains as a reminder of its ancient history, and every year on the 14th of June the saint's day is celebrated by the local people. This area, along with nearby Valle delle Ferriere, is a charming natural environment. Crossed by the Canneto River, the territory holds the distinction of being a Natural Biogenetic Reserve. The ascent from Amalfi is tiring but fascinating. Very close to the apartment lies the Valley of the Mills, where you can find the Paper Museum. The remains of the mills that brought water to the paper workshops are visible, and the walk through nature hides secret charms, such as springs and waterfalls, as well as glimpses of the sea between lush Mediterranean scrub.
We recommend that you choose not to rent a car, as parking is very difficult in the town of Amalfi. Besides, you can use public transportation to reach all of the major towns of the Amalfi coast. We can organize a taxi transfer directly from the airport to the apartment. Service of transportation for luggage free of charge.Read more
