We spent four amazing days in Amalfi, all of them in Villa Lara. The place is a B&B so no dinner is served but there are plenty of good restaurents in the area. We found the location to be perfect, only around 5-10 minute walk from the centre of town but far enough that its peaceful. Nello(the hotel owner) is amazing, he gave us a great room at an excellent price (we had a huge balcony with an excellent view of both the coast and the town). The rest of his staff was also amazing, they arranged all our tours for us as we arrived with a list of things to do but no idea how to get to them. The rooms are very clean and of adequate size but you rarely spend time in the room in Amalfi because theres so much to do. The service we experienced was excellent and the coffee they serve is delicious (we had bad experiences with coffee in Florence and Rome). In terms of value for money we got a great deal and it was worth every penny. We cant say enough about Nello, we just really liked him and he was so gracious and helpful and we had great conversations with him. Overall, a wonderful experience and we will defintely be back. Just some words of advice, if you're coming from elsewhere in Italy(Rome, Florence, etc), the best way to get to Amalfi is via train to Salerno and then a ferry (5 min walk from Salerno train station) or bus (bus terminal is at the train station). We preffered the ferry as its only 30-40 min vs 60+ by bus and the bus ride is a little scary since the roads run along a cliff side. Dont drive there! The roads are dangerous and tough for someone who isnt a local particularly since the road can only fit one car at a time at some points and with buses running by it can be a horrible drive, also parking isnt easy to find. Anyway a car is not neccessary since there is plenty of public transporation that can get you anywhere you need to go at a fair price. We highly recommend both Villa Lara and Amalfi as we enjoyed every minute of it.
