This is a small B&B in the Tramonti (mountains) near Maiori about 7 km for the center of Maiori.
If you do not have a GPS, (even if you do) follow/print the directions listed on their website or you may not be able to find it. Google & Bing maps send you all over the coast and they make no sense. If arriving late at night you will only see the signs for the hotel if you are heading towards Maiori just after the DSM station.
The folks who run it are extremely friendly and service oriented. They do NOT speak English and it is Cash only, although Venere (Italian booking site) and Expedia say differenty.
The rooms are exceptionally clean and the lay out is functional, basic and proper. Everything is in good shape however it is not luxurious, so if you are expecting luxury, this is not the place for you.
The room come with breakfast, just call her and let her know what you would like. It was a quick continental, coffee, etc. Maybe it is different in season as they set up breakfast on the veranda then.
There is internet, wireless only in the lobby and the rooms located immediately next to the lobby area. Otherwise you have to plug into their router (they have the cable) . If you are on the 2nd story, the wireless signal will not penetrate the walls nor reach your room.
Location< excellent base for day trips. In season, the main roads near the shore get crowded and this place is located close enough to a 3 way split to get you through the mountains to bypass some of those roads. Also located close enough to some major hiking trails. They have a couple (2) maps you can borrow from them.
Rooms< think, european layout and bathroom. Not too small but also not big. Doable, and again, very clean. She came and serviced the room every day when we were there. The beds were clean, with enough sheets, duvets, could use 2 more pillows, with relatively hard matresses.
Parking< they have an extremely steep driveway with limited parking in font of their property, there is a church parking lot just at the beginning of their driveway where we parked and it is covered by their security system cameras.
We had dinner several times at: LA VELA RISTORANTE in Maiori, which was truly good looking cooking with excellent service. Ask for Enzo, he is also the 3 times local fishing champion.
Overall, it was a great stay for what we were looking for and enjoyed it.
