Historical Apartment Resting on the Water's Edge - Ceramica Balcone
This Amalfi Coast rental apartment sits on the water's edge, just outside the pretty town of Minori. It is also close to Ravello, where many musical and cultural events are held. The views from this Amalfi coast accommodation are magnificent, with the water just below the property providing private sea access and large terraces equipped with lounge chairs and sun umbrellas.
The villa in which this apartment is situated is located outside of Minori, in an area called Marmorata which is below the mediaeval town of Ravello. This beautiful residence belongs to an old aristocratic family; it has that special charm and character typical of period homes with a rich historical background with majolica tiled floors, ceramics, and high arched ceilings throughout. The villa is a restored paper mill that was converted a long time ago, like many others in the area, into two large private apartments. The water is just below the property, with private access to the sea and three large private terraces, each equipped with lounge chairs and sun umbrellas. There are two apartments above this accommodation, one of which can be rented under the name Manso. This apartment is also connected by an internal staircase of three steps to the apartment Ceramica Terrace. The wisteria terrace belongs to Ceramica Terrace. Next door there is a hotel, great for breakfast.
Please Note: While the Amalfi Coast is beautiful and charming, it is also steep, with many uphill and downhill stairs and walkways. In general, it is an area that is not kind to those of us with knee or mobility issues. This should be considered before booking a property in this area.

Left on 08/30/2001 for a stay in August 2001 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Aug 30, 2001Stayed Aug 2001
The location was amazingly beautiful, and more convenient than we expected. The parking was good, the children's wading pool was a big plus, and the house was close to nice beaches and towns. The house was advertised as three bedrooms, with a fourth available on request. It was, however, two bedrooms with a third available on request.
The landlady was very difficult and disheartened our experience somewhat. The house was pretty, but uncomfortably warm, and the air was close and still. There were no fans or screens, our kids got mosquito bites. <
The waterfall, the snorkeling, the water, the beach at Minori, the cliffside road, the Emerald Grotto, and Amalfi.
