Elena is situated in the lower part of Conca dei Marini, a lovely village surrounded by gorgeous orchards, lemon and olive groves, and particularly well known for its picturesque beach. The apartment boasts a lovely balcony terrace with fantastic sea views, as well as a private sunbathing terrace carved stunningly out of the cliffside overlooking the breathtaking blue bay of Salerno.
The apartment, which is particularly well situated between the famous towns of Positano and Amalfi is built cleverly into the cliffside above the sea and has a handy private parking space just off the main coastal road. Steps from the parking area lead down to an outdoor patio shaded by a pergola which is furnished with table and chairs for dining al fresco.
The patio doors lead from the front terrace to the living room, which is prettily furnished in bright Mediterranean style and has a dining area with table and chairs, kitchen area, sitting area with two armchairs, and settee (which can convert to a bed on request to accommodate a child) and television. There are two comfortable bedrooms and two shower rooms. The living room and one of the bedrooms open onto a lovely balcony terrace which is partially shaded and enjoys gorgeous views over the azure sea beyond.
As well as having air conditioning and internet access (payable locally), the real highlight of Elena apartment is its private sunbathing area carved cleverly out of the cliff side below the house. Its worth the190 steps that lead to this unique spot, furnished with sun loungers and sun umbrellas, perfect for soaking up the sun, bathing in the clear blue sea, and enjoying the stunning view.
Lido Capo di Conca, with its private beach with restaurant, bar and swimming pool, is just 800m away. (please note all beach facilities are payable locally), and the is also a small cove at Fiordo di Furore just 200m away.
Amalfi can be reached by boat from the beach and the local bus stop, just a few metres from the house, has connections to many of the local villages. The main sights of the area, such as Positano and Ravello, are less than half an hours drive and also well worth a visit are the archeological sites of Pompeii and Ercolano, at the feet of the volcano Vesuvius, and cosmopolitan Sorrento with its maze of streets, with shops and pavement cafes is a joy to explore.
Note: As the house is built into the cliffside, there are steps to the sun bathing area, and seafront. therefore this property may not be suitable for persons with walking difficulties or small children.
The owners of Elena live below the house. They are friendly and helpful but do not intrude on your privacy.
Extra services, such as maid service, cook, private excursions and guides can all be organized locally on request.
For larger parties it is possible to also rent another small apartment below Elena. (See 87 Elena 6 for details)

We had a little trouble finding the location because it was nighttime,and the owners waited on the road for us.They were more than helpful and extremely friendly.The home had everything in it you could want.If you are not happy at this location your hard to please.Swimming in the sea was great, although it has about 80 steps to get there.We would thoroughly recommend it.
