“A truly authentic Italian experience!”
Reviewed 4 July 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We just got back from the Amalfi Coast and what an amazing time we had. First, let me preface all my comments by saying that when we travel we are looking for a truly authentic experience. We like to live like the locals. The villa certainly provided that. If you are used to staying in a luxury hotel room be advised. The villa is very rustic and has very few amenities. For example, a 17" television with 5-6 channels all in Italian. But then again it is the Amalfi Coast, why would you want to stay inside? One day you might have an ant problem the next might be finding a lizard in your bedroom. Don't worry, they are small and more scared of you. Whatever the case, Franco and the management did whatever was necessary to correct the problem almost immediately.

The main reasons why this is an extraordinary property is its location and access to the water. The villa has a covered patio that provides jaw-dropping views. You literally can sit out all day and watch the world (Italian style) pass you by. There are about 50 steps down to the bathing/boat dock, which was unbelievable. You can swim right from the dock, the water is clear, fish are everywhere. You can even pick your own mussels and have them with pasta for lunch or dinner. Do not under estimate the value of having direct sea access from your villa. This alone made the property worth the money. The majority of villas in the area don't offer this luxury, therefore, you have to visit the local beaches which can be a hassle, crowded, and time consuming. That being said, if you have small children you need to keep an eye on them. The bathing platform is narrow and has a five-foot drop into the water. And the water is at least 15-20 feet deep right from the edge. If they accidentally fall in they better know how to swim. Still, we brought our two children (ages 6 and 4) and they had a blast! Franco provided a life vest and beach toys for the youngest and that kept him happy.

The walk into town was relatively easy after you conquered the steps to the main road. It probably takes about 10 mins or so. Everything you could possibly want or need is within easy reach. One tip I have is related to a rental car. We were trying to decide whether to get one or not. We decided against it and I'm glad we did. The driving wasn't really the issue as much as the parking is. In Minori and many of the surrounding towns there is nowhere to park your car. If you are staying in the area for your entire trip you might want to forget about the rental car. We used Franco as our personal driver the whole trip and it still was much less than getting a rental car. He picked us up from the airport, dropped us off there when we were leaving, took us to Pompeii, to Ravello, Amalfi, and to Maori. I didn't have to worry about driving, parking, directions, etc. and I still saved money. Another tip, definitely hire a private boat for a day. It is worth the money! Final tip, there is ferry service from the dock in Minori once a day in the morning (sometime between 8-9). This is a question I had before arriving and I have noticed others asking the same question. Information for ferry services in this area is a bit vague on the Internet. This can get you to other towns on the coast or to Capri. I hope this helps. We can't wait to return to this beautiful area and wonderful villa.

“Best place on the coast”
Reviewed 2 June 2012 for a stay in April 2012

The Amalfi Coast is tourist mecca but this little place, tucked away off the road, was our beautiful peaceful retreat. Fab place, especially the terrace which actually makes this place (not sure what the villa would be like in poor weather as it is small), as the view is great, right on the water and plenty of space. Fantastic to be able to swim off the bathing areas at waters edge, not much fishing for the kids tho!
Inside, everything we needed was provided, and having two bathrooms was handy and would be great for two couples sharing the place. There are quite a lot of steps to access the villa but not a problem really and its lovely to wander through the garden to reach it. Car parking up by the road might be a bit of a task for some, depending on what you are used to but nothing can prepare you for the driving on the coast!
An easy walk into the nearest town, which had a small supermarket, plenty of cafes and restaurants and a great little market to browse in. This was also one of the least touristee towns along the coast, more of a local feel to it.
Overall, a great little spot, would love to go back sometime.
