Lovely apartment, beautiful setting, accommodating hosts

  • 4 of 5

We stayed one night at this lovely spot. I think it would be beautiful in the summer. The apartment had everything we needed and was very comfortable and clean. The location was great for exploring the Amalfi coast and is close to the Fiordo di Furore, which is worth a visit. Our hosts were very helpful, particularly as we arrived after dark and had trouble finding the spot.

Rosa was absolutely delightful, helping us with transportation and even making us a cake! The people who lived nearby in Furore were also very friendly. Wonderful place. We will he back!

Charming and quiet stay in Furore. Close to many Amalfi Coast destinations.

  • 5 of 5

Rosa was welcoming and friendly. She brought us a cake upon arrival that was scrumptious. What a treat to stay where her grandmother was raised! The patio terrace was a beautiful vantage point to view the sea.

In Furore there is a beautiful beach but remember with towns who sit up on the cliff, the waters come with a price of many steps down and back. The apartment is next to a market making it very easy to buy groceries and cook. From right outside the apartment you can take public or private destination to Amalfi - only 20 minutes by city bus. We easily ventured to Amalfi, Ravello, and Positano.

Absolutely perfect.

  • 5 of 5

This property was everything we expected from the previous reviews and property description, and more. The property itself is adorable, with stunning views of the sea, exactly as depicted on the website. It was conveniently located right beside a small supermarket, and across the road from the bus stop for easy access to Amalfi. From Amalfi you could explore other parts of the Amalfi Coast if you wanted, but we also took advantage of the opportunity to hike up and down the cliff side via the countless stair cases and pathways between local residences for incredible additional views of the coast.

The only challenge we had was that the wifi is spotty. It is only available from the main room, and it does cut out often. This is due to volume, and we are on vacation so we could do without it, but this is something that may be important for some reviewers.

We can not say enough about our hostess Rosa. She was incredibly helpful leading up to our stay, and checked in with us every day to answer questions, and provide any assistance we may have needed. She even provided a delicious pound cake upon our arrival, as well as some milk and juice for our breakfast.

There is no question in our minds, we would return to this property if we are fortunate enough to return to the Amalfi Coast again in a heartbeat.

Lovely apartment in fantastic location, wonderful owners

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is perfectly located in the heart of the region with great transport links to neighbouring towns with a bus stop right outside. The private parking space is an essential extra for the area. The apartment is set off the road so is quiet and private. We loved the private garden and terraces that come for sole use of the apartment, so lots of outdoor space with views out to sea. There's so much to do in the area, with easy trips to Pompeii and Naples achievable as well as around the Amalfi coast. We loved the great range of public footpaths straight out of the apartment door and would walk out from the apartment and come back by bus. The apartment is roomy, superbly clean and modern and with characterful bedrooms. Added to the superbly helpful and friendly owners it couldn't have been better. Thank you for the wonderful stay and your Easter gifts.

Great Apartment in and Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is spacious, has a fun layout, and the garden is perfect. It feels a bit like paradise. Furore is off the beaten path, and the apartment has the perfect spot in the village - easy access to a market, cafe, and a restaurant while still feeling private. Rosa, who hosted us, was very kind and even brought us eggs from her farm. We would definitely stay here again.
