We fell in love with town of amalfi and this wonderful villa that is nestled halfway up the mountains with water views from all of the windows. What we loved most about this villa was coming home after a day of siteseeing with a bottle of wine, antipasto and bread and sitting under the bouganvilla on the terrace, overlooking the sea and the lemon orchards and relaxing in the beauty of it all.
The villa held our party of 7 comfortably, 2 of the 3 bedrooms are quite large. The home is clean and decorated nicely with tile flooring throughout. The kitchen is fully equipped, and there is a washing machine. The villa is a short walk to a coffee shop where we bought brioche and coffee every morning. It was very easy to get to the town by bus,as the bus stop is right across the street from the villa. You do have to climb a fair amount of stairs to reach the villa but it is an easy climb. For us, this villa was the perfect place to stay and we would love to return one day.

The villa offered our family just about everything we needed. It's ideal location, great views and clean accommodations were perfect for us. Being able to use the coastal bus system is the only way to get around the Amalfi coast. The bus stop was literally at the foot of the steps leading to our apartment. We bought fresh produce and food in Amalfi or the nearby convenience store to cook just about every night saving us some money. The washing machine and dryer did not really work efficiently enough for all of our clothes so we ended up using laundry facilities in Amalfi. We left all of our clothes in the morning and when we returned from a day of exploration we picked them up. The only frustration we had was hooking up with the local agent. The directions provided included us looking for a floral shop that was no longer in existence. Hopefully, an easier rendezvous place will be forthcoming. We drove from Rome to Amalfi, so we took full advantage of the offer to have our cars parked at a local "garage" which was right across the street from the base of the steps and bus stop. It was well worth the extra expense. Parking along the roadway is impossible. We would go back and use this place in a heartbeat.
Nice place and location
