“Charming place and charming people”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2011

We stayed here for two weeks and we loved it.

The location is ideal for enjoying all that that the Amalfi coast can offer. We travelled with the car and the inside parking was very much appreciated. It was a little bit tricky thing to make practically U turn from the busy and narrow street in the gates. Our very first attempt was not successful and neither was the second. But we progressed eventually.

The apartments are simple but very clean and come with everything you would need including kitchenware. We stayed at “Oleandro” – beautiful room with the spacious entresol.

The family is lovely, very friendly and helpful. Although nobody speaks much English, we somehow managed to communicate. Our daughter quickly learned sign language and had a great time playing in the yard with her new Italian friend.

Charming place and charming people. Highly recommended.

First - the location. The loggings of the "La Valle delle Najadi" are situated in Vietri Sul Mare, the first of the famous Costiera Amalfitana. You're welcomed by a typical Amalfitana style neighborhood. The buildings are old but renovated and welcomes you with that special local style. The site of the "Valle delle Najadi" is in a Bonea valley, surrounded by mountains full of green vegetation. The inner courtyard is lush and green, full of flowers, grapes and lemon trees (with lemons!). There is even a mini zoo for kids :). The beach is just a few hundred meters away and the city center is within a couple of minutes walk. The SITA buses go daily along the Amalfitana cost (you can easily reach Positano, Sorento, Amalfi and others) or you can go to Salerno (3 buses at about 20 min. intervals, 1.20 EUR per trip) and take a train to about any Campania's tourist destination.

Second - the accommodations. The apartments are independent from one another, each with a private terrace, beach stools, large sun umbrellas, etc.. I stayed in the "Nigella" apartment which was fully equipped (fridge, fan, TV, shower, bidet, etc. There was even a gas stove (some pots and cutlery too!) in the kitchen to cook the food if you wish so. Some minor criticism (or a future idea of improvement for the owners) is replacing a shower curtain with a cabin to keep the water safe. :) There were no air conditioning installed but since the buildings were built last century by Italians for Italians (by the looks of it - from stones) to accommodate the local climate, the room didn't get very warm even during the hottest of the days (~30C).

Third - the service. Since "La Valle delle Najadi" is oriented more to the families and apartment rent business there are no room services here, you're responsible for cleaning and caring of the inner facilities during the course of your stay (all the necessary items were provided). The linings are replaced once a week (I think you can request new ones anytime if you're in need). All the staff (except the service workers) actually are the owners of the hotel (a big and a very friendly Italian family living in the same location) so you're always cared for. Free and fast Wi-Fi is provided across the entire location. Payment is cash-only (or a cheque) as no credit cards are accepted, but there are many ATM machines not far away in the Vietri's center.

Fourth - the value for money. In my opinion - very good indeed, you stay in the original dwellings in the beautiful Amalfitana cost and still pay about half a price you would pay in a local 3 star hotel for a small room (trust me I've tried, the Amalfitana is a busy tourist destination...).

Conclusion. If you value the originality, the traditional locations, the warm atmosphere and like the independent living - just book it.
