Farfalle e Gabbiani in Tramonti is the ideal base to explore the Amalfi coast if you prefere to stay in rural village surroundings.
With a car you are within easy reach of the sea, the main archaeological sites of the area (Pompei & Herculaneum) and of Naples. Coming back from the rather hectic coastal road to the quiet mountains of Tramonti is very relaxing. The area is very good for walks, a highlight is the "Sentiero degli Dei".
Within walking distance of Farfalle e Gabbiani are the excellent gourmet restaurant "Cucina Antichi Sapori" which serves top meals at very reasonable prices and also the very good pizzeria "Vaccaro".
Farfalle e Gabbiani is a beautiful, tastefully decorated house, the rooms are equipped to a high standard (good mattresses, heating, very clean). Breakfast is very generous including delicious home-made cake.
Antonio is a lovely host who makes you feel very welcome. He gave us lots of helpful tips for our holidays and always made it a pleasure to return to Farfalle e Gabbiani. After 10 days we were sad to leave!
