“Fantastic Stay At La Clarissa”
My wife and I just spent five wonderful nights at Anna's La Clarissa property near Minori. The property is exactly as it looks on the website. Anna was very helpful with information and booking details. We met Franco at the property the day of check in and he was fantastic. He helped us book a boat trip to Capri. (Don't miss that) and recommended a couple places for dinner. The property was spotless when we arrived and the house cleaner made sure we knew where everything was. The apartment was perfect! The view from the balcony is absolutely stunning. Words cannot describe what it's like waking in the morning to the smell of fresh coffee and sitting out on the balcony over the Mediterranean as the bells from the church up the hill play an old hymn. The town of Minori is a small little town that has just about everything you need. We also visited Ravello and it was absolutely one of the most beautiful places in the world! All in all, our time at La Clarissa was definitely a high point of our trip. Thank you Anna and Franco!
Before renting this villa I researched a lot of places. I wanted to stay in a small town without so many tourists and really see the amalfi Coast and the people who live there. Everything about this villa is exactly as described. The patio and view are amazing and the price is very reasonable for everything you get. The very best thing of all is the service provided by Mr. Franco. He arranged a boat trip to Capri and a bus tour to Pompeii. He picked us up and took us back home so we didn't need a car at all. He also picked us up and the Salerno train statio9n and took us back when it was time for us to leave. I highly recommend you asking Mr. Franco to help you with your local tours when you arrive. We would definitely stay in this villa again when we return to the amalfi Coast.
“Wonderful week in a dream location”
La Clarissa may be very small, and somewhat unappealing from the road...but it is very well appointed, and has the most amazing terrace and looks directly onto the most beautiful sea views. We spent loads of time just chilling and gazing out to sea, either in full sun (the terrace shower was a God-Send!) or under the awning or the shaded area at the end of the terrace...heavenly! Minori is a lovely little town (Giardiniello restaurant highly recommended) but ferries don't operate in September so you'll need to brave the traffic if you want to go further afield. Amalfi (our favourite place) is only 10 mins drive, Positano another 30 mins or so. The coast road whilst a challenge is well worth the drive. Would highly recommend La Clarissa!
“Wonderful romantic honeymoon spot”
We stayed for a week at La Clarissa during our honeymoon and absolutely loved it. Minori was within easy walking distance and was a friendly little town. There was a nice walk (steep but shady, with plenty of water stops) up to Ravello from very nearby. The villa had everything we needed and the most glorious view. The terrace was large with plenty of sun/shade depending on what you wanted and was not very overlooked, despite the proximity of the road. The road is nearby, so you do hear some cars, but it's not hugely busy and the traffic didn't seem to continue through the night, so didn't bother us. In fact, the location was very convenient and it was nice to be slightly higher than the town. Check in and assisstance from anna couldn't have been easier and the reserved parking space certainly made things easier (although bring a small car!). We'd love to go back sometime and re-live our honeymoon.
The villa itself was not much to look at from the narrow and winding Strada amalfitana, that breathtakingly nerve-racking coastal road with the iconic views. Inside, however, the two-storied villa did not disappoint as it was scrupulously clean and well appointed. The air-conditioned upstairs bedroom, with lots of closet space, a comfortable bed and ensuite, had it's own balcony with sweeping views. A spiral staircase led down to the living quarters where we found a spacious living room (with TV), a fully functional kitchen as well a bathroom with shower and washing machine. The terrazzo was, of course, the centerpiece with spectacular views of the undulating coastline and villas precariously perched on the cliffs apparently defying gravity! The terrazzo, fully furnished with chaises lounges, dining table, a great little B.B.Q. and its own outdoor shower nestled under vines and lemon trees, became the center of our world. On a personal note, while there, I experienced a minor medical problem. Both Franco, uber concierge and factotum, and owner Mr. Oscar Gambardella were, without fail, solicitous and uncompromising in their efforts to help. Mr. Gambardella actually drove us to the local hospital and personally saw to it that I was well treated. We recommend La Clarissa without hesitation! Giovanni and Edith
I'm not even sure where to begin ... our recent stay at La Clarissa was, by far, the best vacation ever! The villa itself is very European; charming, quaint and romantic ... the perfect size for two people, with all the amenities you'd need. But the terrace is what will knock your socks off ... it's huge and the views are literally breathtaking; simply gorgeous. We loved spending time basking in the sun, reading books, eating breakfast, just taking it all in. Although you will not want to leave, the quick walk into Minori was an adventure - and the town is adorable. People were so friendly, great restaurants (our favorite was Il Pontile - recommended by anna and Oscar!), and we loved that it was not overrun with american tourists (we are americans, so nothing against american tourists, but we really got a flavor for Italian coastal living, and by the end of our week stay we were in love with Minori). And anna and Oscar (and their adorable daughter) could not have been nicer - from the moment they picked us up from the bus, we felt welcomed and like old friends. We're already talking about when we can come back and who we can convince to go! Trust the reviews on here, you will love this place!
“Stunning views at a charming and cozy getaway on the coast”
La Clarissa sits perched on the amalfi coast just off the amalfi Drive in Minori. The photos of this place don't lie. The views of the coast and sea are amazing from here. Unfortunately, we visited in april and had four straight days of clouds and rain. The few brief glimmers of sunshine we did have made it all worth it. Just a few minutes of soaking up the sun on the terrace while listening to the waves crash against the rocky coast did wonders for me. The apartment is the right size for 1 or 2 people. My husband and I stayed here together, and it was just the right size for us. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone with accessibility issues, however, as stairs are required to get from the upstairs bedroom to the downstairs terrace/living room/kitchen. The entrance to the house is also directly on the amalfi Drive. This didn't pose too many problems for us, but you should take caution in entering and exiting the property as the drive is just two lanes and cars can sometimes come by very quickly. The amenities are basic (no fancy equipment in the kitchen, standard TV channels, no internet), but this should be no problem if you're spending most of your time out on the terrace (which I would highly recommend!). The house is also a short walk from Minori. We ended up cooking most meals with food we bought at the markets in town. I would also recommend the walk up the 1,250 stairs to Ravello. It's a great way to see the towns tucked into the coast. Finally, the service we received was great. Anna was in communication with me for the few months leading up to our arrival. Their helper, Franco, kindly picked us up in town when we arrived by bus and dropped us off again when we departed. We also happened to meet anna and her husband at a local restaurant while we were eating out. They are a lovely couple.
“An amazing week!”
My husband and I recently stayed at La Clarissa. We were so pleased with this wonderful villa. It was in a perfect location for our amalfi Coast vacation. We were within walking distance of the charming town of Minori and there was a Sita bus stop a few steps away so we could hop on and visit all the other lovely towns along the amalfi Coast. We spent hours walking along the paths and stair steps of local hill top towns and marveled at the gorgeous views. After purchasing groceries in Minori we were able to make breakfasts in the well equipped kitchen at the villa. Taking in the views from the terrace as we ate breakfast was a perfect way to start our day. La Clarissa is a comfortable and relaxing apartment and we both slept like babies after our daily adventures. Anna was very helpful when we made our reservations and Mr. Franco was a good host when we arrived. We are already talking of returning to this amazing place.
“Beautiful; the perfect match to the marvelous amalfi coast”
Clean, new and well-kept facilities; beautiful view; well situated. Our first experience at the amalfi coast, and we think that La Clarissa was just the perfect place where to stay to enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
We stayed at La Clarissa in late august and early September 2011 and it was the most amazing vacation home I've ever stayed in...and I"m a world traveler! The view and the patio are absolutely perfect...you are right on the water with all ammenities you could imagine. The villa is a short 5 minute walk to Minori and all the shops, restaurants and markets. We walked into town every day and cooked dinner and ate on the patio while taking in the amazing view of the sea. Franco was our main contact and he was the best. He picked us up from the airport in Naples for 100 euro and drove us everywhere we needed to go while we were there. He also gave us many suggestions on where to eat, shop, etc. Anna (owner) provided a network key for us so we did have internet access while we were there. You just have to ask for it. We will definitely be back! Enjoy!
