About the property

Il Giardino del Fauno (The garden of faunus) is a quiet and elegant suite immersed in a three-level peaceful garden (500 square meters with free private parking). It is the perfect base to discover all the secrets of the coastline listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site as a cultural landscape.

Immersed in a sweet-smelling garden of lemon trees and roses, this elegant retreat has been renovated in Apr 2013. It’s located in the heart of Amalfi Coast, in the historical center of Maiori, a lovely village five kilometers from the city of Amalfi. It can accommodate two to four guests (queen-size bed and sofa-bed).

You’ll find lively contemporary furniture's from high quality suppliers, free WiFi, 3D TV, home theater system, Sky Sat Tv (Paytv included), air conditioning, chromotherapy shower, a modern fully-equipped kitchen (refrigerator and freezer, dishwasher, countertop, cutlery, hand made ceramic dishes and cups, pots ...) and a fresh herb garden, the final touch to elevate your Italian cuisine dishes.

The beach is one minutes walk and bus stop, local bars, pizzerias, restaurants and groceries are on the doorstep.

Price includes private parking.

Please note that prices may vary depending on seasons and number of guests.

Oh, I almost forgot! It could not be otherwise, il Giardino del Fauno is pet-friendly.

About Giuseppe

If you want to know all Amalfi Coast secrets all you have to do is ask. Above all, at Il giardino del fauno you'll feel at home, my home of course...

Why Giuseppe chose Campania

This is the perfect base to visit all Amalfi Coast attractions and surroundings. Il Giardino del Fauno is in the very heart of it all. Cities (Amalfi, Positano, Ravello, Sorrento ... ) islands (Capri, Ischia) and archaeological sites (Paestum, Pompei, Ercolano) are all reachable in one day trip.

What makes this villa unique

You will stay in the city center (100 meters from the beach) but away from it all at the same time, thanks to a 500 square meters of fresh and silent garden of lemons.

Fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived the owner pleasantly showed us around, for groceries and free parking. The house is extremely clean and modern with the villa setting. Few minutes walk to beach and convince place to discover and explore all amalfi costal. We difintly will back for more staying in future. Many thanks for your hospitality.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

A garden oaisis in the middle of urban Maiori, just a 3 minute walk to the city beach and many restaurants and shops, including a grocery store. Giuseppe's house is as advertised, and the 4-tiered gardens even more beautiful and aromatic than the pictures convey. Giuseppe was kind and helpful, answering all of our questions and ensuring that we had everything we needed upon our arrival. Maiori was less touristy and flatter than the rest of the Amalfi Coast. If stairs are a challenge for you, this is the place to stay!

Awesome place! Hidden gem of Maori!

  • 5 of 5

To say that we enjoyed our stay at Giuseppe's place would be a total underestimate. We absolutely LOVED the place and the area. Giuseppe greeted us with a true Italian warmth and explained us all the details about the condo and recommended several places to eat. Actually she was so awesome and helped to plan us our stay at Amalfi coast and visiting the places we were interested in. Location is great: great coffee shops, tons of restaurants and shops. We were so happy to stay in Maiori, because there are not so many tourist, more local people and it was not so crowded as Amalfi and Positano.The condo is very cozy and clean and just in couple of minutes from the beach. Overall great experience and we absolutely recommend it to anyone. Thank you, Giuseppe, it was a real pleasure meeting you!

Honeymoon Bliss

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I throughly enjoyed our time on the Amalfi coast. This was a perfect spot for day trips around the coastal towns, as well as to Capri. Guiseppe was very helpful and answered any concerns we had promptly.

Magical Maoiri

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful home in a wonderfully authentic area on the Amalfi Coast. The apartment was immaculate in every way with new fixtures and fittings and state of the art entertainment features including HD/3D tv, DVD player and Sky tv. Full use of all three well presented gardens with access to fresh herbs and lemons which came in handy when using the BBQ that is provided. The host was welcoming and accommodating and happy to help with any request we had. With the beach less than a leisurely five minutes away and local stores nearby this is somewhere I would recommend highly for anyone looking to stay in or around the Maiori/Minori area. I have fantastic memories of staying here and would definitely go back.
