Why Lucia Roma chose Atrani
I bought this property some years ago, because during Christmas time I went to Amalfi Coast and I saw for the fist time Atrani. It was wonderful, all lit up by Christmas lights, and I fell in love with it.
What makes this Apartment unique
From the terrrace of Caesarina House you can see an amazing view: the blue of the sea and the green of the mountain up to the village. The apartment is in the center of Atrani, but is very quiet and confortable

Great stay avoiding the Amalfi crush
We loved our stay in Atrani! Luciana had arranged transport for our luggage from the ferry at Amalfi, so we were met at the ferry dock and taken the few minutes by road to Atrani where Luciana met us at the entrance to the village square and showed us to their lovely apartment. It was more than ample for the needs of the three of us, impeccable and comfortable, with lovely views, a bright outdoor dining area off the kitchen, and a rooftop terrace. There are two large bedrooms, and a separate loft area with what appears to be two sleep sofas; and with three full baths, it can easily accommodate a large family. Regrettably, we were staying only four days which did not allow us time to fully enjoy all these amenities.
This location is ideal for a visit to the Amalfi Coast. Atrani retains the quiet charm of a typical small Italian town, and is immediately adjacent to Amalfi, which can be reached via a short walk through a pedestrian tunnel. As a result, we were able to see and enjoy Amalfi when we wished, and then leave the tourist hustle and bustle behind. It was a perfect base for our visit. We enjoyed our morning coffee and pastry each day at the little pasticceria on the square in Atrani, and and two days took convenient bus transportation from the bus stop just in front in order to visit Ravello, and Vierti sul Mare. On another morning, we walked to Amalfi and after spending the morning there seeing the sights, took the bus to Positano where we spent the afternoon. Each evening we returned to the quiet of Atrani, and dined several times at the wonderful local restaurant, A'Paranza, or prepared dinner in the apartment. We found it to be the ideal arrangement, and I would strongly recommend it to anyone seeking a similar experience.
Our family (2 adults and 2 kids) stayed for 4 nights. It was a magical time. The property has views in every direction. You'll go up several dozen steps to get to the apartment (a guess, I did not count) -- these stairs are a blessing because the height delivers a comfortable view over the elevated road and other buildings. The apartment was large and spacious. Atrani was an easy walk to Amalfi with just enough of a barrier to keep the heavy crowds away but still easy to visit for a fancy dinner, on a whim, or to make a quick purchase. The piazza in Atrani had a half dozen little places to get a pizza or breakfast (one of our favorite places we ate at in Italy ended up being right in Atrani). The swimming at the beach was pleasant even in October. There is a lot of local walking and hiking available without requiring transportation (I recommended the staircase to Ravello). The property manager did all my work for me regarding transfers between Naples and the Amalfi coast (100 euros each way for my entire family) and we kept in touch the entire trip. We used the washing machine with a problem. The community in Atrani had a strong sense of authentic character. We pretty much just rolled out of bed and woke up in one of the most scenic, culturally rich, and pleasant places I've ever been.
Great stay in beautiful Atrani
We were so glad we chose Atrani - versus town of Amalfi for our stay. Less touristy, crowded and hectic and an easy walk to Amalfi. Apt. had everything we needed. Plenty of space for 2 couples and great views. Lucia was very easy to communicate with and very responsive. Arranged a transfer for us from Naples which was great. Would recommend this apt.
Thank you very much, Karen. It was a pleasure to host you :-)
This Place Has My Heart!
What can I say? This apartment and Atrani have my heart. We stayed at Lucia's in June with another couple. There is incredible space- two large bedrooms - one sea view with balcony; another with a mountain view and terrace. Both bedrooms have en suites bathrooms-and there is a third bathroom in the hallway. The sea view bedroom has air conditioning. The beds were comfortable. The apartment has views from almost every window and there is an incredible open feeling -when you feel the sea breeze. The terrace added to the space and was a wonderful gathering place. The furnishings are "shabby chic". Lucia arranged a pick up for us at Pompeii and travel back to the Naples airport. She was a great communicator.
Now- "the head part"- The apartment is up about 70 steps. However, steps are well lighted, new (not slick), and have hand railings. The four of us are all retired and did fine! There is some road noise when you open the windows; but you can also hear the church bells chime. The kitchen is in need of an update (no toaster, etc.), but there is a wonderful restaurant at the bottom of the stairs. (Il Veliero- excellent food, good-inexpensive wine, and lots of personality (they took my husband into the kitchen to pick out two homemade dessert).
Would I return? You bet-Lucia's apartment-and Atrani-is calling my heart!
Thank you, Kathy. It was a pleasure to host you!
Gorgeous retreat on the Amalfi coast
We fell in love with our home away from home in Atrani! Gleaming tile floors, tons of light, windows looking out over the sea, and balconies galore . . . it was the best leg of our Italian journey by far. The space was very clean and well-equipped, and the town of Atrani itself is quaint and charming. I could not recommend this place more!
Thank you Lisa, it was s pleasure to host you :-)
Great location! A bit noisy in bedroom with the best view - but (in my opinion) worth it!
We had an amazing time! Our family of 5 stayed for two nights and would have liked to have stayed longer. Great access to Amalfi and Ravello and other areas. Beautiful vistas from many areas in the house. To get to the apartment, there are quite a few stairs, but for us that added to the appeal. Small kitchen, but stocked with what you need. Lucia arranged for a car service to pick us up at the airport and then she met us to walk us through the apartment. That was extremely helpful. I am not sure we would have found it easily on our own. We absolutely loved staying in Atrani and would have liked to have had more time to explore more.
Thank you Briana. You have a lovely family. I hope I could host you again.
