Attraction Details
Owner description: My name is Rossella Mottola and I have a tourist office in Amalfi; we offer stunning luxury villas, self-catering apartments and residences in Ravello, Positano, Amalfi, Atrani, and other coastal villages in this beautiful resort area.Many rentals have swimming pools, striking Mediterranean (sea) views and private access to the sea.Perfect for wedding arrangements, honeymoons, family reunions and holidays of all kinds.We also provide historical, nature excursions and hikes as well as gastronomic tours. Visit local markets, a cheese makers shop, a liquor producer of the region's famous limoncello and even take a mini cooking class.Why not try taste some local wines? A short journey to Tramonti, will carry you to a private farm and it's excellent appellation-controlled wine.The farm extends over about seven hectares and produces wines from the grapes of three local historical families, producing both red & white Tramonti wines. You can also take a tour of the vineyards that produce the famous Lacryma Christi wines that are cultivated on the foothills of Mount Vesuvious.Our Amalfi coast is really beautiful and a boat ride should not be missed. We rent small boats for couples, and bigger boats for families and friends seeking to discover the coast by sea. For sport lovers, why not hire a kayak and explore the coves, beaches and islands that can be found close by.Another way to explore the coast is by renting a car or scooter; of course it is really important to have the confidence to negotiate our narrow roads and hairpin bends.The Amalfi coast is also a good base to visit the famous archaeological sites as Pompeii, Herculaneum & Paestum letting us organize an exclusive tour or group tour with a specialized guide. Let us provide with the region's premier tourist services and vacation rentals as well as information on hotels, bed and breakfast accommodation and restaurants.For direct access to the many wonders of the Amalfi Coast contact us

“Go in here for great trip info”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Whilst staying in Amalfi we wanted to see many local sights and wanted to book some trips. We tried the official tourist info office but found them unhelpful & pretty rude, we then went in here (basically because of the dog in the doorway!) the staff were amazing & so knowledgable. They did not sell us the most expensive trips but listened to our requirements and offered solutions. As a result we had a fabulous day in Pompeii & Herculaneum with the best guide in the world (Lello) he was so funny, enthusiastic and obviously loved his job and history! After such a great experience we then booked Capri tour - 8 people on a private boat, expertly navigated by Salvatore. Admittedly it was a little more expensive than catching the ferry (€80 as opposed to €55) but well worth it. You get chance to travel comfortably, see stunning coastline, swim in the coves, sunbathe on deck with a beer before spending 4 hours in Capri. No queuing in Capri & fighting for a place on the ferry home, walk past the crowds and onto your private boat - simply fab!!

“Amalfi? This is the kind of help you are looking for!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

Wandering around Amalfi, trying to get some information that would be helpful for our two week stay in Amalfi, my wife and I were lucky enough to stumble into L'Altra Costiera di Rossella Mottola, a real estate and tourism office, but not of the usual kind. Coming through the door is more like walking into a party. The bubbly, friendly atmosphere, instantly relaxing and engaging, makes you feel like you’ve found good old, and definitely, good future, friends.

Immediately getting the helpful information we needed, we proceeded to visit and pester poor Rossella and her sister Paola everyday, with thanks for the previous day’s help and yet more questions. They helped arrange for a number of things that made our Amalfi stay truly wonderful.

We began with an unusual Lemon Tour hiking through beautiful orchards, ending with the two of us slightly tipsy after more than a bit of Limoncello tasting. The next day we had a boat excursion to Conca dei Marini where we had a meal never to be forgotten at La Tonnarella. Duplicated again several days later. Then they arranged a boat rental that was what one dreams of when heading toward that part of the world, boating along the coast, stopping for lunch at Positano and later again for a private swim in a little cove.

I highly recommend stepping into these offices. Even if you have no specific questions in mind. Stop in and say hello. You won’t be disappointed.

“A fantastic agency!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

I knew we were in good hands with Rossella from the moment I got her first email. She was very patient and thorough as we emailed back and forth to determine which apartment best met my family's needs. She has a lot of patience and her excellent English speaking skills came in handy when it was time to show my family around the place we rented. You can definitely trust this agency to rent you a wonderful home away from home! Mille grazie, Rossella!

“Dreams come true”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

For three years now Rossella and the wonderful staff at L'Altra Costiera have made our dreams come true. The selection of apartments available for rent leaves one breathless with the visions of the many adventures that lay ahead. Basking in the sun and Sea, absorbing the joys of a culture rich with the true meaning of love, life and happiness, hiking the many roads and trails of the Amalfi Coast or just sitting next to the bubbling sound of clear sparkling cold water cascading from a fountain... dipping your hand in and sipping the ever flowing life energy of Amalfi has been a full circle dream come true.. And the food, did I mention the food... Fantastic. We are looking forward to our trip this year and many more for as long as I am granted breath. Thank you Rossella for your keen eye to detail and for going above and beyond the norm to make our trips and the trips of others so special.
