The apartment was page for European standards, but it had no view. All you could see out the two windows were other cement apartment walls. We knew ahead of time there was no view of the sea, but there wasn’t even a view of the street.
Having two bathrooms was a nice bonus. While we were there, there was a pretty severe leak under the kitchen sink. I contacted Mariatheresa and she came within an hour with a plumber that repaired the leak immediately.
Dear Madam, I am sorry that you did not like the view from the apartment. As reported in the announcement, the apartment has no sea view but view on the village, and exactly on the houses of Atrani that are perched on the mountain, a feature that makes Atrani unique. In my opinion it is a nice glimpse but I gladly accept your point of view. Anyway, thank you for choosing us.
Quaint Vacation Home
My mother and I visited the Amalfi Coast for her 50th birthday and she loved this vacation home! It was well kept, sunny and the neighbors were friendly. The town of Atrani is super small and cute with local places to buy groceries and eat out. Our host Maria Teresa was very responsive when we had a couple of issues.
NOTE ABOUT LUGGAGE/AMALFI:
1) More than likely, you'll arrive in Amalfi (major town next door) and you'll need to get your luggage to Atrani. Note that it will cost you at least 30 euro for the less than 5 minute ride in a taxi. There's no other option.
2) This vacation home is up a hill and then 2.5 flights of stairs. My mom and I were in Italy for 2 weeks and had a lot of luggage.
3) To go to other towns along the coast, you'll need to go into Amalfi which is a 15 -20 minute walk that includes an uphill hike, then a flight of stairs AND THEN across the highway to the tunnel (entrance next to the parking garage at the top). You'll definitely need walking shoes for that.
Dear Madam, I'm glad you spent a nice time at my house. I'm sorry that he had problems with suitcases. Unfortunately, I had too little time to give you a cheaper alternative that I would have gladly found. I had however indicated the presence of buses from Atrani to Amalfi for only € 1.
In the announcement I indicated the exact number of stairs leading to the apartment (34 steps) To be totally transparent with our guests and avoid surprises. I assure you that in Atrani and on the coast this number of steps are really very few considering that there are houses also accessible with 300 steps without lift. The houses at street level almost do not exist here ...
it is the conformation of the territory that creates discomfort but at the same time makes the Amalfi coast a unique place so beautiful!
nice and clean apartment in perfect spot
We stayed 5 nights in that apartment. It's 5 minutes walk from shops, restaurants and the beach. It was clean and well equipped. Atrani is great place to stay as it's very close to Amalfi (10 minutes walk), but it's much quieter. The only problem was the town clock (located nearby the apartment) that was ringing every 15 minutes (also during the night). Except of that our stay was perfect.
Need to know about steps
This is good property. We were warned by the owner that parking was a problem and she did arrange for parking at a reasonable price but about 3 kilometers away. The steps should be emphasized as the property is on a hill and there are about 20 steps. The owner was very helpful and it is a good place to stay
Dear Sir, I am truly sorry that you have had problems. The apartment is not at street level but there are about 25 steps to reach it. On the website this is reported and I'm sorry that I did not emphasize this aspect. We are used to reach homes with 400-1500 steps. So for us a house with only 25 steps is very convenient! About the parking I always do not recommend to come by car because I know the problems here (traffic, impossible to park easily and for free). Close to the apartment I had proposed the Lunarossa garage (more easily accessible but much more expensive) or a less expensive but more distant place (exactly 1.5 km - not 3 km - from the apartment. You can also reach it by bus). I realize that this caused inconvenience, but on my part I have always been very clear about it. The Amalfi coast is also famous for expensive and difficult to find parking! Thanks anyway for your review. Every criticism for us is a reason for improvement.
Great apartment and wonderful hosts.
Everything I expected it to be.
Apartment in lovely village
Parking almost impossible so we arranged car to and from airport,apartment in great location within area generally surrounded by locals, local shops close as is square with very good restaurants and couple of bars,beach mainly stones but nice for swimming, there is also very good swimming at one end off rocks into deep water.There is little of the holiday shops but if required we found a ten minute walk into Amalfi via road or tunnel gave you all holiday requirements, we used to take the ferries along coast in both directions for day visits to other resorts giving a great view of coast from the sea and local buses we found good when used
The apartment is located in Atrani, a very suggestive little town of the Amalfi Coast, a charming ancient fishermen's village and historical residence of the doges. It is very close to the characteristic square from which, going under an arch, you could reach the beach. So the house is situated in the very centre of life: bar, shopping, mini market, restaurants, farmacy, ..everything near-at-hand! It is very easy to reach all the most beautiful place of the Amalfi coast: only few meters for Amalfi, some km for Ravello, Positano, Sorrento.. By boat it is possible to reach the famous Capri and Ischia Islands and the wild Cilento Coast.
In the Amalfi coast you can eat local dishes and seafood fresh, in restaurants on the sea too. Between the best clubs there is certainly the "Africana", as taken completely out of the rock and sea view, in the summer can also be reached by sea. In the Christmas time Atrani assumes the appearance of a crib and, the night of Christmas Eve, becomes truly magical with the fallen star. The New Year's Eve, the square of Atrani becomes a disco, meeting place for all young people. Notable are also the Easter holidays with the procession of flying and the procession of Jesus died on Friday. In June, the feast of St. Andrew in Amalfi, will leave all with bated breath for the "rush of St. Andrew" for the steps of the cathedral and the beautiful fireworks, on the sea. On July 22 there is the party of Santa Maria Maddalena in Atrani, so you enjoy unforgettable moments with fireworks. In August, there is the festival of blue fish to Atrani and "Amalfi by night" in Amalfi, where you can find entertainment between the alleys of Amalfi and taste local products. In September is the Byzantine New year to Atrani, in which is crowned a personality in the world of culture as honorary doge. Also in September to Minori there is "Gusta Minori", which offers fantastic performances and unforgettable scenes, accompanied by a gastronomic journey. Unforgettable are the fireworks in Torello, to be admired from the nearby Ravello. From June to October there is the fantastic and famous "Ravello festival".
