“Great place to stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

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.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

Have spent one night at La Picola last week thanks to a Glamoo coupon which also included breakfast. The estate was previously a farm and still keeps ist rural character though it's been carefully renovated in order to become a B&B.

Four double rooms and two apartmens for four persons, a wonderful terrace - endowed with sun beds on one side and some tables for breakfast and dinner - with breathtaking sea view, a light breakfast room, a wide reception where are also displayed in their undisputable beauty an ancient millstone for olives and an olive press. A second wide terrace surrounds the rooms above. All around vineyards, lemon orchards and lush vegetation.

A warm welcome, and then up to our room which was cosy but with some aspects which are to be improved: as its roof is mansarded, the bed forced one of us to walk with a stoop when it came to go on his/her side of the bed - which is really uncomfortable. So, the bed should be located on the wall where the ceiling is higher so that both guests can walk without running the risk of knocking their head against the mansarded ceiling. We highlighted that problem to the estate's manager and owner who promised to take into consideration our suggestion. We have also put owner's attention on some other small organizational lacks due substantially to their limited experience.

Breakfast was not so bad but can be definitely improved, f. i. by putting at guests' disposal a toaster and some butter. Quality of the croissants could also be better. Very good are the fruit juices and the assorted yogurths (rarely to be found in a b&b). Hot beverages can be ordered and are prepared at the moment. Just the morning after we discovered that it was also possible to have dinner with local products there which is not highlighted on their brochure nor it was told us upon check-in. But some other guests confirmed us that their dinner there was genuine and tasty.

Significant pros of the estate are: its outstanding location and view all around, its sunny terrace, the green surroundings, the warmth and kindness of the whole family owners. Mineral water is free of charge also if you take a bottle up to your room.

Definitely a place which is well worth visiting (apart from coupons their rates are really competitive) and where we are going to stay again soon.

Room Tip: Ask for a not mansarded room. We really appreciated bathrobes available in the bathroom!
