We stayed there for 4 days last Sep. 13. Our trip was unplanned, so we took the last cheap availability we found on booking.com around Sorrento. We did not expect to find such a great place on the Amalfi peninsula, 10km from Sorrento and Capri, 12km from Positano, 30km from Pompeii and 50km from Naples.
After spending your day visiting all these crowed and beautiful spots, it's great to end your day in this guesthouse located at the top of the mountain, in a small and authentic village in the countryside.
Not easy to find the place though, but it's worth the effort. The house is surrounded by vineyards, lemon and apple trees and fields. There are many nice and welcoming pets. There are authentic cheap and delicious restaurants around, and a grocery.
But best of all, the view is absolutely fantastic. We took the small flat, and from the bedroom, the kitchen and even the bathroom, there's an exceptional view on the sea, the Naples' bay and the Vesuvio.
Don't look for fancy furniture, the place is simple, but very clean and comfortable. This is an ideal place to rest and appreciate all the famous spots around. Owners are so lovely, welcoming and arranging. You really feel home and free. We will definitely come back there for a longer time, just for the place and for the kindness of the owners.
Just hope that not everybody will come now! Keep the secret for you...
