Villa Lara is an amazing B&B with one of the most dramatic locations in Amalfi. We loved everything about Villa Lara - the location perched above the town with wonderful views yet close enough to the shops, restaurants and town center, the friendly and warm staff,( with a special nod to our host, Nello) , the delicious breakfasts and stocked in-room refrigerators. Rooms are clean and beds comfortable. We will be back. Thank you, Villa Lara.

we stayed two nights in Villa Lara- one in the superior room and the second in the junior suite and they both were so great. the view from this place is fenomenal, the service is kind and friendly, and the rooms are very comfortable.
the breakfast is very simple but all in all this place is highly recommended. Don't miss the lemon cake...

Villa Lara is a peaceful oasis in Amalfi.

We found Amalfi to be hectic during the day while the day tourists were in town, so having a retreat away from the crowds was wonderful. The evenings in Amalfi though are a delight, when the day visitors are long gone and the local people emerge to go about their business.

Circumstances meant that we stayed in two rooms, a room with a view of the sea and one that faces the valley. Both rooms were beautifully appointed, spacious and spotlessly clean.

The only time that we were aware of any other guests was when they joined us at breakfast time.

Two things you must do here are :

1. Linger over breakfast on the terrace. Whats the rush, enjoy the food and the company of Nello, his staff and your fellow guests as you look out over the coast and town.

2. In the late afternoon, sit on the terrace, enjoiy a glass of wine and watch dusk settle over the town.

I thought that Villa Lara would be hard to find, but it was quite easy. Just cross the main square and follow the only road in town until you reach the parking garage, walk under the arch and start looking for the sign on your left. Dont believe the sign on your right that you see that says "villa lara 20 metres" it is probably 200 metres.

We dont like hotels all that much as they all seem much the same without any personality and warmth. So for us Villa Lara was a highlight of our trip to Italy, as you could never say it lacks personality of warmth.

Highly recommeded.

The biggest asset to this hotel is the staff who are really helpful and friendly. The rooms are small but clean and breakfast is good. If weather permits there is a pretty terrace to sit and have breakfast with lovely sea views.

We stayed in Amalfi for 4 nights in October 2012 at the Villa Lara. Everything about it was perfect. It started with the staff - everyone was very polite, helpful, down to earth and you knew they cared about your stay at the villa.

The location was great, it was about 5 minute walk to the ocean, the villa is tucked away in the mountains with a beautiful view. Don't be put off by the strange hallway leading to a creepy elevator - its part of the experience and it whisks you up into a private area you can call home.

Rooms were clean, very comfortable, made me feel at home.
This was great!
