Our 3-storey house is a typical dwelling of the Amalfi area, part of a larger property shared by 2 owners but totally independent. About 1650 ft from town centre and slightly over 0.5 miles from Amalfi sea and beaches, it lies at the edge of the residential area in an elevated area of countryside reachable only on foot along a path that consists of 150 stairs. Part of a 17th cent. farmhouse, it is surrounded by a large lemon garden + patio + large terrace with a view of Amalfi valley and the sea (partial).
Amalfi residential area is spread along the base and the slopes of a narrow valley with steep, rocky walls, which descends to meet the beach and the sea below. Our house is found within this valley, attached to this steep, rocky slope, partly facing the coastline and partly surrounded by lemon terraces, a perfect place to enjoy the peace of the countryside yet being not far from the town center, the sea and the crowded streets/shops if that's what you want.
Accommodation Summary : 3 double bedrooms: 1 with kingsize bed + sea view; 1 with double bed with garden view; 1 with twin beds (no view, high window). 2 bathrooms. Two rooms Read more
