“We loved it - beautiful area and great apartment in this well maintained pretty villa”

The property is located in a beautiful setting and it is well maintained. The place looks just like the website photos. Very comfortable apt - we had Coratina a lower unit that has a large private patio that was great. There were five of us ranging in ages 12 to 62 and the accommodations were perfect. The views are lovely - you can still see the ocean through the trees even on the lower units. The place is a five minute walk to town -- steep down ( and back up but good for working off gelato ) through a typical italian town with so many photos ops along the way! You have to cross a busy highway to get to town but we all managed to do so safely on a daily basis. Our neighbors next door were from Denmark and they had been coming since 2006. A few days there was a strong smell of smoke in the area - we told Alfonso and was investigating to find our what it was. It was not an issue in the property itself but in the hill area.
The town of Santa Maria is great fun and the area is incredibly beautiful! The apt is suitable for children and there were many.There are swing in the nice shared green outdoor garden area. WIFI is temperamental so if you need it for work you will be frustrated - for vacation it was ok. We will return!

“good value handy to beach”

We booked this apartment at the last minute, looking for somewhere well priced and near to the beach. And this place is. Although it’s quite small it’s clean and well kept, and having the garden and the terrace makes it much more manageable. The walk to the beach is probably 10-15 minutes with kids, all downhill, and through the town which is lovely. The area is much quieter than other nearby areas (Amalfi) and equally attractive. The beaches were great and we enjoyed our time there. The only negative was the busy road near which was noisy and had to be crossed. Also we arrived on a Saturday and the apartment isn’t stocked with cleaning materials, so we struggled to do dishes and clean until Monday. But Alfonso was very helpful and made us very welcome. This place worked fine for us for 5 days. Oh and Pasteum is an unbelievable- great value and awesome to visit.
