“Fantastic!!! You can't get better terrace views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

The house can be a little difficult to find and driving there might through a very narrow paths can be very exciting and nerve wrecking experience. It is quite far away from the town so I would not advise you to walk. The bus stop is 5 minute walk from there (quite a lot of steps involved!). There is a private driveway (secured by an automated pillar) you can park your car on.

Carmen who runs this B&B is a lovely Italian lady who speaks a little English and who you would judge straight away as friendly, genuine and helpful. She lives in this big house with her Family. The guest rooms are in the newly decorated attic. There are 3 bedrooms with a shared, very light and airy dining/living area. The terrace is absolutely lovely. All pots with different flowers and plants make it look beautiful. But you can't beat the views from the terrace!!! Breathtaking!

Carmen tried to make my stay enjoyable by even giving me a bus ticket for free or by making a lovely breakfast (tea, home made cake and croissant).

I would sincerely recommend staying in this place. You won't regret it.

We stayed here for 5 nights, our host has been more than helpful and experienced with travelers from all over the world. She was easy to communicate with, friendly and obliging.
We used the bus service every day to get to Vietre Sul Mare, Salerno and Amalfi for day trips.
The local restaurants are excellent and serve quality Italian meals.
Our room was so clean and perfect with access to the terrace garden to relax on.
We would happily recommend this BnB to any travelers.
A note, you must understand to pay for your accommodation by cash and not credit card.
Excellent stay.

We spent just one night in this beautiful B&B. That was the worse part of our stay.
The owner is a great host. She knows how to make you feel home. The room was beautiful, with its own bathroom. Super clean and neat. You have a beautiful terrace where you can rest, enojy the breathless scenario of the Riviera and have breakfust. But if you are unlucky (like we were) and it rains overnight, do not worry. There is a beautiful living room where you can enjoy stay and your breakfast and still have a beautiful view. You are a walk from Vietri, and Raito is connected by shuttle bus.

Spectacular views of the eastern Amalfi coast from the roof top terrace. Hard to find, as is located in Raito above Vietri, and the drive to and from is hairy, with very narrow lane complete with parked cars on one side, concrete wall on other. Even with mirrors retracted, clearance of our small car was sometimes 1 inch each side. Not for the uninitiated non Italian driver. Parking very limited. There is an ok local bus to and from Vietri, which runs (sometimes). Room was ok, but a/c quite minimal, no view windows, breakfast very minimal. Very little English spoken, although host nice. Probably not for the first time Italy non Italian speaking tourist. Would stay elsewhere next time.

Vietri itself is an ok town, with several decent restaurants. Tricky access to and from the quite close autostrade and coast road.
