About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

The Property is located in 'Badia' Corpo de' Cava (Cava de' Tirreni) 23 miles from Naples International Airport. Badia is a medieval walled fortified village at the mouth of the Amalfi Coast (2 miles) Its relative high elevation (1500 feet) gives it breathtaking views and a wonderful sense of separation from the real world. The walled village sits above a 1000 yr old monastery first established in 1011, which hold the remains of 4 Roman Catholic Saints and other religious artifacts that date back thousands of years.

The property itself faces south, with wonderful views of the green Latteri Mountains, which make up the Amalfi Coast. Along with the peaceful sound of a clear mountain stream which runs below. The property has recently undergone renovations which capture both the quintessential essence of its past along with today's modern necessities. Just 5 to 10 minutes from the beaches of the Amalfi Coast! Only a 15 to 20 minute drive to Pompei, 40 minutes to Paestum, 25 minutes to Amalfi or you can take the ferry which departs from the port of Salerno, (10 minute drive) to get to Capri or Positano. Or you can go hiking in the green Latteri mountains that run along the Amalfi coast with there breathtaking views. Or just sit on the terrace over looking the monastery and valley below. We are only 50 meters away from a 4 star hotel with a pool that you can have access to, along with their health spa ! (Additional fees will apply.)
This summer we have available a 36ft Luxury Motor Boat with a Captain for full day or half day excursions along the Amalfi Coast. You can also visit Capri, Agropoli, Palanuro. spend an unforgettable day on the Italy's Azzurro ! Additional fee's will apply.

Also this summer you can experience the Amalfi Coast in a convertible Mini Cooper, nothing like humming along the coast with the top down ! (3 people max) comes with driver.

Private Tours available at airport transfers, tours and general site seeing ...

The one thing Badia is not, is touristy. You will find only family owned restaurants that serve only the best local cuisine. So if you want something special come and stay in Badia! You won't be disappointed.. Please note this is a small medieval village and parking is at a premium although you will be able to unload your baggage at the door, you will then have to find parking about 100yds away.
