I stayed here with a friend in August and will certainly be coming back again - if not making an annual pilgrimage. There is no denying that you can't get a lift up the last 200 steps to the hotel but it's worth is for the spectacular view from your bedroom window and private terrace. My room was huge, clean and had very efficient air conditioning that was all part of the cost. The kitchenette was sufficient for making light meals (fridge, sink, double hob). We actually preferred to eat in Minori as it has some excellent and very reasonable restaurants there. Breakfast on the terrace in the mornings is just stunning, drinking espresso, croissants and home made fig jam. I spent most of my time lying by the pool or on the terrace soaking up the view. I would have had a completely different experience of the Amalfi coast if I'd have stayed in the town itself rather than up the hill - why stay on this beautiful coast if you can't gaze at it?! Minori, like all rural Italian towns, is small and lively, particularly in August. You don't get coach loads of tourists here and it is certainly not a resort, but there are dogs that bark, cars that beep and parties on the beach. I always travel with earplugs as I find the countryside noisier than the city! I would not advise coming here with a car - these are very small towns with very few access roads (which is the beauty of the place) so parking is a headache.
Flavio and his staff were incredibly welcoming and there are several families and couples that return every year.
I have heard that there is a rainy season (April/May?) but the weather in August was glorious and the breeze from the sea means that heat isn't too oppressive.
All in all I had a lovely week here and am planning to bring all my friends. I have been missing the view, the food and the warm hospitality ever since.
