“Absolutely Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012 for a stay in November 2012

We have just returned from a week staying at Villino Rubacuori on the Amalfi Cost. I have to say it couldn't have been more perfect. The information and support from Summer in Italy, who we booked through was brilliant and the accomodation was absolutely beautiful with views over the sea and mountains beyond. We were looking for somewhere that was secluded but also close to everything and Villino Rubacuori
delivered this perfectly. The owner met us in the nearby town and took us to the property. He was exteremely helpful and explained everything to us. There is a information guide in the mill which tells you of some local restaurants and trips which was helpful. It also has details of the buses.
The property is right on the coast road with secure parking which is great if you hire a car (which we did). The property itself is a bit of a climb up the hill (about 50yds ish). This was a bit hard work when we first arrived because of the weight of our case but throughout the week it was great because you felt like you were staying rurally when in fact you are right near everything. Cetera is a short drive up the road, walkable but it was dark so we just took the car. We went to a very nice fish restaurant there one evening which was recommended by the owner.
All the places we wanted to visit such as Pompeii and Herculanium were an easy 45 minutes drive using the motorway and Amalfi and Positano were also close.
The owner tried to contact us after a few days to check we were ok but unfortunately my phone didn't work. Wehn we arrived back at the property that night he had left us some anchovies and more pellets for the fire which was really thoughful.
I would definately recommend this to people as it was beautiful and the accomodation was great.
Best bits - location, views, accomodation and helpful and friendly owner.
Worst bit - the walk up the hill to the mill - it was fine for us but if your were a bit unsteady on your feet it could be a problem. Although even this shouldn't really put you off. Just take regular rests on your walk up!
