The apt. "VIEW" of Tenuta Cavaliere, is on the second floor of an old 19th century farmhouse surrounded by greenery with a wonderful view of the Amalfi sea, composed of an entrance, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a comfortable living room-kitchen and a large panoramic terrace. Just a few minutes from the chaotic center of Amalfi, reachable on foot for lovers of walking or by public transport (every 30 minutes) you access the apartment going up about 95 steps from the main road. The well-kept interiors have hand-painted Vietri ceramic tiles, antique furniture.

Perfecto! Exactly as described and then some. Would definitely come back. Perfect location
It’s was our first time to Italy and we felt very welcome and comfortable talking with Giuseppe about anything in Amalfi! From meeting us off the ferry to having our bus tickets ready to the apartment, it was all very smooth. He and his wife carried our bags up the 93 steps to the apartment. We knew about the steps ahead of time, and all over the Amalfi Coast as well. We were prepared! The apartment was spotless and beautifully decorated. Fresh fruit, milk, water and other snacks were waiting for us. The lemon trees and other plants/flowers all around took my breath away! The last day we saw his dad working in the yard....it truly felt like home! Washing and then drying the clothes upstairs on the roof brought back memories when I was young!! Get to know the Italian door locks, all of our doors where we traveled were tricky at first but we caught on. There is a bus pickup right on the street outside the apartment wall. I recommend buying multiple €1,30 bus tickets (one way) either from or to the apartment. We enjoyed the walk even with the Vespas and buses wizzing by! What a thrill on the buses!! We took a bus to Pompei at 930 and got back by 4. So it’s doable. I wish we had more than three nights, Capri was an entire day and completely worth it!! Take the chair lift in Anacapri! Thank you Pippo for all your help and answers prior to our arrival. You’re the best and we hope to return. Ciao!!
Beautiful apartment with an incredible view.
We loved every minute of our trip to Amalfi. Giuseppe and his wife met us at the ferry and it was a short bus ride to the apartment. I was travelling with three teenagers and we enjoyed the beach and taking a charter boat to Capri that Giuseppe arranged for us. I highly recommend staying at Tenuta Cavaliere the view is spectacular and the apartment was newly renovated and very clean.
There are not enough words to express how amazing this property is! The location is breathtaking! Everything is new and the apartment is spotless!!!!! We felt very comfortable staying here! As a matter of fact, we cannot wait to go back! Giuseppe and his wife were extremely welcoming and even greeted us with a homemade baked lemon cake, which was not only delicious but very thoughtful.
The only tip I would provide is to expect to walk up a lot of stairs to get to the apartment. Having said that, it was worth every step!!!!!!!!
Lovely apartment with breathtaking views!
Giuseppe picked us up from the port of Amalfi and drove us up to the apartment. There are quite a few steps up to get there, but we didn't have any trouble. He and his wife Antonella were very nice and helpful, and Giuseppe was quick to reply to my questions.
The apartment is really gorgeous - fully renovated with beautiful tile bathrooms. The house is next to farmland, which we learned Giuseppe's father still tends to at age 80! Giuseppe had bottled water, espresso, milk, fresh fruit from the garden, and light snacks stocked for us (which we were very thankful for).
We took the bus into Amalfi and back each day. Though hilly, it is possible to walk (but a bit treacherous with the narrow street and lots of traffic). Amalfi is centrally located, so there are lots of options for day trips to Positano, Capri, or other towns along the coast. We took a nice cruise to Positano, but next time I would skip the Emerald Grotto (cave) - very short tour not really worth the 5 euros IMHO.
Loved our time in Amalfi and wish we'd had more time to relax there! Thank you, Giuseppe and Antonella!
Rested, relaxed and reluctant to return home!
We had the best of all possible times staying in this beautiful apartment. It looks just as it does in the photographs and is clean, well-equipped and well-maintained. Giuseppe and Antonella could not have been more welcoming and the welcome pack meant that we were able to spend the first night without the worry of having to finding a supermarket.
Having them there at the end of a text to ask about things such as buses and boat trips (Guiseppe helped us organise this) really helped. In actual fact, although there are a lot of steps up to the apartment (130 from the road to the front door) and it is at least a twenty minute walk uphill coming back from Amalfi, we were very proud of the fact that we didn't get the bus back once. It is quite safe to walk, even at night, and there are usually lots of other people doing the same thing in one direction or the other. Given the amount of ice cream we ate, this was a good thing!
Because the apartment is so well set up, we divided our time between eating in and eating out but there is a wide choice in Amalfi. We loved the pizza at Da Stella and the risotto at Da Gemma but our top marks go to the family run Ristorante L'Abside in Piazza dei Dogi. The food was super and the customer service second to none. We also enjoyed the lemon cake at Pasticceria Pansa Andrea in the main square.
We have travelled together widely over the last twenty years and always try to get away at the start of the summer holidays to rest and relax and have a good catch up. Usually, we plan to go somewhere different each time but this will be a hard act to follow and we are already discussing a return visit.

We recently vacationed in Italy for 2 weeks--Rome, Venice, Florence, Cinque Terre, and Amalfi. Our stay in Amalfi was our favorite. Not only the town itself, but the apartment was amazing. The view from the balcony was our favorite place to sit and relax. The apartment is decorated beautifully with local tile and artwork. We had everything we needed including a washer! Guiseppe and his wife greeted us and helped us carry our luggage up the stairs. He also followed me to park the car and brought me back on his cycle. They cut fresh lemons for us on our arrival and also when we departed. They were available the entire time if we needed anything.
We highly recommend this apartment!
