Really nice environment. Not as touristic as the other site of Amalfi (like Positano). We had a great time.
Unfortunately the weather was very bad the first few days. The last day was the first day with splendid weather. With bad weather the appartment is not as comfortable and cosy as you would wish for.
Also when renting one of the appartments it should be said that part of the building is permanently lived in. We did not expect this which was inconvenient in the beginning, since it felt like we did not have that much privacy.
Use a small car because the road to Villa Erca is very narrow and steep, especially when you're not used to such roads and you don't want to damage your car. There is parking availabiltiy in the village which is do-able if you don't have anything to carry with you.
The house is being partially renovated which caused a lot of noise in the apartment we rented. Not something you want on your holiday, early in the morning.
There are a lot of dogs in the neighbourhood which cause a lot of noise during the nights as well.
Despite all things we had a nice time but we won't rent this in future anymore. It didn't entirely meet our expectations and what we had hoped for on that moment.
