“An amazing and unique property in a stunning location with a jaw dropping sea view.”

This property is the ground floor of a three story 18th century villa. Park the car on the (new) concrete roof slab and take the original steps or the (quite old but not 18th century) lift down to the accommodation, which is full of character with an art deco feel and sea views from every room.

Eight beds in three rooms (bunks and a double in one, doubles in the others) and three bathrooms. The third bedroom opens directly onto the terrace and has the third bathroom ensuite. This has no shower, but there's a hot poolside shower right outside which we used as the weather was so good.
The terrace is spacious, bathed in sunshine until mid to late afternoon and has an unbelievable view. The pool is great to cool off in, but is quite small. No worries though, rock steps take you from the terrace straight down the the sea (135 of them!)
Almost everything imaginable (a kettle being the surprising exception) was provided by the host including bluetooth speakers, sun tan lotion and even toothpaste.

So the accommodation is excellent, but the location and particularly the setting really are something else....
The property is built into the cliff a five minute walk (or swim) from the little village of Minori and directly below Ravello, which is very beautiful and claims the finest views of the Amalfi coast (although they really are no better than from the terrace of 'The Little Castle'....Every morning you'll step outside, say 'Wow!' and take a variation of the same photograph. you took the day before).

Minori is a pleasant and low key 'resort', with a number of good restaurants ('Giardienello' and 'Sal de Riso' stood out for us).
There are regular boats from Minori to Amalfi, Positano and other spots along the coast so there's no need to risk driving.
The property owner (Francescopaulo) is an absolutely 'top bloke' who couldn't be more hospitable, helpful and generous.
This is the first year he has rented out his home and I reckon it is going to be fully booked forever, so get in quick and pretend you're a movie star for a week!!

Thank you very much De. I am delighted that your stay in the Amalfi Coast has been very enjoyable to all of you and you felt comfortable in staying at my home. You are right, waking up every morning on the sea gives you a very pleasant feeling. It is difficult to describe the slightly sparkling scent of the morning breeze and the pleasant feeling that fills your heart in seeing a beautiful landscape right in front of you. I personally, of all of you, have a delightful memory in my heart that I tried to summarize in a few lines and you know that I am extremely sincere. Finally I can only thank you ....... You were my favorite English teacher, that's for sure. I embrace you all. Francescopaolo
