It was a great choice. Furore is a tiny town of about 500 people tucked between Amalfi and Positano, right above Praiano. Mornings are extremely quite and peaceful and you can even hear roosters. The villa, Furore 2, is very comfortable for a family of 4.
The location. It was very quiet yet it's a short drive to either Amalfi or Positano for dinner, the beach, or any other entertainment. Having a pool is such a benefit if you travel during summer. Italy gets really hot.
We loved little towns in the area, and of course the views.
Marion's review of Furore 2
Left on 05/19/2012 for a stay in May 2012 | Marion
My sister and I (72 and 62 respectively) had a terrific time in Furore! The villa was spectacular, with lovely views of the sea and the town of Praiano below. So overall, we loved the trip and the accommodations!! The unpleasantries were few and insignificant. I would be more than happy to recommend the villa to anyone who loves modern, luxury accommodations, peace and quiet (except for the barking dog) and superb views of the sea!
The unit was spotless, well maintained, beautiful furnishings, and had very new appliances, comfortable beds, and there was lots of space. Since we went the first week of May, they had just filled the pool and it was very cold, but we went in once anyway. Loved being able to open the French doors in the bedroom, walk out to the terrace at night, watch the sunset or sunrise, see the moon relfected in the sea below. We met the owners, and they were very friendly and gracious. There is a flock of sheep that grazes on the hillside below, and we loved watching them. Sometimes the shepherd was with them, sometimes not. There were three sheep that seemed to have special dispensation to stay out late into the dusk, all by themselves. We also encountered a herd of goats that crossed our path on the road – that was cool! The local agents were very polite and ready to answer any questions. I even called them during the week for directions to somewhere, or to inquire about why the Amalfi Coast Road was closed from Praiano to Sorrento (landslide, apparently); they were happy to take our calls. They kept saying how expensive electricity is in Italy, but we only used about $30 of electricity the entire week. Of coure, we only needed air conditioning one day, and then the weather became very pleasant. We found the villa to be very energy efficient.
