A lovely hotel tucked away in the beautiful town of Amalfi and is central to all the restaurants, bars and attractions of this town. The 200 steps up to Reception was welcomed as it gave us a perfect 'work out' after the pasta and the wine we had each day...there was a lift but we chose the steps!
A great team with Nello, Luca, Luigi and Pietro. We upgraded our room after the first evening as the initial room was in the loft and although beautifully decorated and spacious, we only had a velux window which we didn't feel was sufficient for a week's stay in Amalfi with it's beautiful scenery and views.
The upgraded room had French windows onto a terrace with two sun loungers and this was perfect for our afternoon siesta or relax in the sunshine. Both rooms were very clean and each had a mozzi killer for which we were grateful! The breakfasts were perfect with fresh italian bread, salami, cheeses, yoghurts and cereals but mainly for Luca's mama's homemade lemon cake which we worked off on our daily workout with the steps!
All in all an excellent welcome and perfect position if you want to stay in the centre of Amalfi. It had a couple of communal areas where you could sit in the evening with a glass of wine if you wished and have a good chat with the friendly Luigi.
Amalfi and its one street in this beautiful historic town is wonderful, but parking is limited. We parked our car in the nearby privately owned parking garage in the town at 18 euros per day. This car park was manned 24/7 so you collect or drop off your car at anytime, night or day. It was difficult at times to drive up the heavily populated street - a restricted zone during certain times of the day - but that in itself was an experience and well worth it.
This hotel was lovely but I do think that it could offer more as it is not exactly the cheapest hotel and it only offers B & B. After saying that, I would stay at Villa Lara again if I am ever lucky enough to visit Amalfi again!
