The picture does not lie!
We had an amazing week at Casa Carlo! The Booking process left us a little skeptical as you deal with a German Tourist agency but everything turned out great. Antonio met us and we followed him to the property. He helped us park our car, lugged one of our suitcases up the stairs (by Amalfi Coast standards not a ton), showed us how everything worked and told us to call for any problems. He even offered to drive us to a local Pizzeria. He checked in several times with us to make sure we had what we needed. Even brought over 2 wineglasss when we told him we could only find one. Very sweet and hard working man. The views from our enormous balcony were incredible! We spent most of our time outside. Ate breakfast and many dinners outside. There is a small grocery store nearby, about 10-15 min walk, although it is up many stairs through the lemon orchards. And we did walk to the nearby G.A.S. Bar for dinner one night, part of that walk was on Amalfi Dr which is a little scary! There is a bus stop right outside the apartment and we took that into Amalfi town. You need to buy tickets first from a Tobacchi store but drivers let us on 2x without. As for the interior space, again pictures are accurate, very large space, everything we needed to cook simple meals. No real sofa to sit on, more of a day bed, but for us we were either on the lounge chairs or sitting at outdoor table which is nicely shaded. Bed was comfy. Would recommend to anyone wanting amazing coast line view, doesn’t mind taking the bus and understands old Italian buildings. It does have air conditioning but we only used it once, very airy apartment.
Sehr schöne Ferienwohnung mit großer Aussichtsterrasse.
Sehr schöne Ferienwohnung mit großer Aussichtsterrasse
mit tollem Panoramablick über das Meer und die Südhänge
des Amalfibergrückens. Sehr netter und hilfsbereiter Gastgeber
mit guten Englischkenntnissen, Parkplatz in der Nähe (Option),
Ausgangspunkt für Spaziergäng und Wanderungen. Amalfi
fußläufig in ca. 30 Minuten ereichbar. Wohnung ist für vier
Personen gut geeignet, ein angenehmer Aufenthalt. Der über die
typischen Wege durch Dorf und Zitronenhaine in ca. 10 Minuten
bergwärts erreichbare Mercato bietet alles Notwendige. Empfehlung
ist die nahe GAS-Bar, in der im Vergleich zu den Touri-Zentren die Pizzen sehr gut sind die Getränke (Kaffee-Getränke) günstig sind.
Parken mit PKW und ÖPNV eher schwierig, unbedingt Stellplatz mieten.
Wir freuen uns sehr, dass Ihnen Ihr Aufenthalt in Amalfi und in der Casa Carlo gefallen hat. Vielen Dank, auch im Namen des Vermieters, für das Feedback und herzliche Grüße.
The heart of the Amalfi coast
Amalfi – the small town which the world famous coast has been named after – is the best known tourist destination at the Costiera Amalfitana besides Positano and Ravello. Characteristic of this cheerful coastal town are its bright houses scattered over the mountain slopes and its magnificent cathedral Sant’Andrea.
Probably founded in the 4th century AD by the Romans, it was from the 9th century on that Amalfi rose to become the powerful capital of Italy’s oldest maritime republic and it commanded a strong naval and merchant fleet. In the 10th century, the coastal town was the hub of commerce between Orient and Occident. This close contact with the Arab world is still reflected today in the characteristic architecture of the coastal towns at the Amalfitana and the lemon crop dominating the landscape.
From the 19th century on, Amalfi became a favourite tourist destination when mainly German and English travellers discovered this tourist town for themselves.
Amalfi’s townscape is marked by the cathedral’s golden façade with its magnificent majolica adorned campanile rising above the coastal town’s brick-red rooftops. From Piazza Duoma, there is an impressive, steeply rising stairway to Duomo Sant’Andrea dating from the 10th century and harbouring the relics of Saint Andrew. A tour of the cathedral should absolutely include a visit of the famous Chiostro del Paradiso. It is in this magnificent cloister that Amalfi’s nobility used to be buried.
The entrance to Amalfi’s Old Town is flanked by Porta Marina. There is lively hustle and bustle in the central Piazza Flavio Gioia with its monument of the man who supposedly invented the compasses and in the main street Via Lorenzo d’Amalfi, which is lined with stores, bars and restaurants. You will find more peace and quiet in the small terraced alleys where you can dive into original Amalfi.
In Valle dei Mulini, above the town, over a dozen paper mills used to be powered by the river Canneto. Amalfi was probably the first town in Italy where paper was skimmed in the Middle Ages. It is interesting to visit „Museo della Carta“, which is to be found in one of the medieval paper mills and where you can witness the various stages of paper production. Valle dei Mulini with its many creeks and small waterfalls is also very attractive for hikers.
