We had a wonderful week on the Amalfi Coast staying in La Casa del Melograno in Furore (which is about 4 km from the town of Amalfi). The 90 Euros a night was a real good price compared to other places on the Amalfi Coast at this time of year. It is in an old historic building but the rooms have been modernized. All the rooms have nice bath rooms and everything is very clean. It is located on a dead end street with plenty of parking. Every room has a view of the sea. Breakfast was included and consisted of coffee, juice, a wonderful homemade croissant, biscuits and jams.
A car is an absolute must. You have to drive to everything including the beach. The bus stop was 1 km up the hill. The owner (Umberto Somma) is a very good and helpful host. He recommended several good restaurants in the local area (all in small villages - not the well known towns) and they were all well priced.
The B&B does not have Wi-Fi but the owner does have an extra hook-up in his office area.
The big problem is the location on the side of a hill requiring 80 very steep steps every time you go somewhere. They did help with the baggage when we arrived and departed. I would recommend La Casa del Melograno to anyone who does not have trouble with the steps.
