Amalfi Coast Gem, Nestled in a Medieval Village !

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,100 sq. ft.
Property type house


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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

As fairly experienced Airbnb'ers I can honestly say this was one of the best experiences we've had. The location is hands down the most beautiful and romantic that we've ever stayed at. The view from the balconies is breathtaking. The host made us feel very welcome and check in was a breeze. The nearby town offers some great shopping and eating opportunities. There is a great hiking trail that leaves from nearby that ends with an amazing view of the coastline. All in all I can't recommend this place enough.

Private Feedback:

Everything was great. Honestly you could charge a lot more for that place once you get some good reviews. Only suggestions I could make would be the little "hotel like" things that I've seen a lot of other Airbnb places do. Such as some little soaps. Maybe some instant coffee specifically for guests. Other than that the place is amazing.

Absolutely perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in a perfect location for exploring the Amalfi Coast. This is definitely one of the best apartments we've stayed in. The views from the apartment terrace were amazing. The owner, Joe, was terrific. He could not have been more welcoming and helpful. He was there for us whenever we needed him and had some terrific restaurant and activity suggestions. If you want a very special experience of the Amalfi Coast, this is an idyllic place to stay. It is off the "beat and track" so a car is highly recommended. Thanks, Joe, for a wonderful stay!

Fantastic apartment in amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was superbly located to explore the Amalfi coast, Paestum, Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius whilst only being a 50 minute drive from Naples airport.

We stay in a lot of self catered apartments, this has to be one of the best. As Joseph has lived in the property the basics are all spot on. Comfy beds, great wifi, good kitchen facilities. Great shower!

Joseph was always on hand for any queries regarding the local area such as supermarkets/places to eat/visit and even brought us washing powder when we were cheeky enough to ask!

The views from the apartment and roof terrace are amazing!

If you're looking for an apartment in an amazing setting that's well located for the tourist hotspots you're not likely to find better than this!

This property was just so perfect for us! We had 6 nights just gutted we didn't stay for 2 weeks! The most peaceful location with views to die for! House has all you could wish for with the most beautiful big sun terrace and another little area by the kitchen over looking the mountains were we had breakfast each morning! Only a short drive to the beach and sites of the amalfi coast! (We couldn't wait to get back to the village for the peace an views) Lovely pool in the hotel next door that we used a couple of days with no charge! 3 class restaurants serving amazing local food at really reasonable prices! And I have to Finnish with the owner Joe what a gentleman from Boston! Was there for us whenever we needed him! a top cool guy!!! We will definitely be back again if he has us! Thank you Joe!!!!
