This is a great property and Guido is a great host, very very helpful in every respect, and in addition just a nice guy!
Unlike in a regular hotel, here you get a sense of the non-touristy side of the Amalfi coast. The apartment we had was spacious and the views were amazing. It is a very quiet and peaceful place, with lots of walking and hiking routes that start or pass right there.
One note: if you intend to travel around a lot and come without a car, you must realize that the property is a bit out of the way of mainstream bus routes. So you may have some walking to do to get to a bus stop (as I understand, this also depends on the season) or a food store/restaurant. The closest bus stop and store are in Furore, an about 2km walk along a relatively level road. Did I say Guido was extremely helpful? Well, he picked us up in Amalfi on the first day and on the last day he drove us to a bus stop to get on a bus to Naples!
Overall, highly recommended.
