About the property

Asteria (from Latin aster, star) is the name of this old stone farmhouse, two-story vaulted and characterized by arch structure typical of the Amalfi Coast. And 'situated halfway and easily accessible from the main road through a private road. Surrounded by greenery, private location, surrounded by terraces of lemons and offers a beautiful view of the Gulf of Salerno.

The Asteria is the home area where together with my family I spend weekends and holiday periods; is then furnished with care in every detail and equipped with heating, television, car parking and free internet.

The first floor consists of entrance, bathroom with shower, living room with two sofa beds, kitchen with dishwasher, utility room with washing machine lavanderia-. A large terrace allows you to enjoy the landscape and sunbathing next to the small pool of water lilies.

Upstairs is accessed via an internal staircase or from French doors overlooking the rear garden. E 'consists of two spacious bedrooms, one bedroom with attached bathroom and two twin beds, a spacious bathroom and a study. On request it is possible to add more beds.

The Asteria is located at the beginning of the Amalfi coast and suitable for holidays all year. Ideal starting point to visit the most famous towns of the Amalfi Coast: Amalfi, Praiano, Positano and Ravello, or to reach by boat the picturesque coves that line the coast. A few kilometers from the railway station and bus terminal in Salerno is also an ideal starting point to visit Naples, Pompeii, Paestum, Herculaneum, Elea-Velia and the National Park of Cilento and Vallo di Diano.

The bus stops in the direction of Amalfi-Positano and Salerno are right at the entrance of the driveway. In spring and summer, ferries and hydrofoils link the most important centers of the Amalfi Coast and Salerno, Capri, Sorrento and Naples.

I live in Salerno and are on hand to give you news and information on the region, assist in booking and organizations of trips, tours, etc. I can also personally accompany guests to visit two of the most interesting Vietri ceramics workshops, where they can also learn the art of ceramics.

FOR TREKKERS are available all the information on the many excursions along the paths of the Amalfi Coast, in particular the '' Path of the Gods '' quoted by the New York Times as one of the ten most beautiful walks in the world.

Such an amazing find - better than imagined

  • 5 of 5

My partner, his two teenagers and I travelled to Vietri sul mare for the half term break. The plan was to explore the Amalfi coast and surrounding area, and experience Pompeii, without hiring a car.

The villa Asteria is situated up a private drive directly off the Amalfi Highway, with buses stopping for both directions at the gated entrance. Easy to find. And a very reasonable transfer by taxi from Naples airport, booked online prior to leaving.

The villa is breathtaking. Far more spacious and inspiring than the pictures can convey; beautiful outdoor gardens, lemon and orange groves, and terraces to enjoy, with even a track leading to incredible villages further up the hill side.

It was superbly fitted out with all one could require. We so enjoyed preparing and eating meals in the wonderful kitchen.

Anna Maria, the owner, really made the difference to how our week went. Her kindness and thoughtfulness , even before we arrived, were so helpful, with loads of information sent by emails. She greeted us on arrival, and remained available whenever we needed her.

Anna Maria introduced us to Valentina and Nicola, who were able to provide us with transportation on tap if needed, local knowledge and fantastic private guides to various sites, including Pompeii with transport included from our door. Indeed, our return travel to an apartment in Naples overnight prior to flight out was only made possible with Nicola’s driving and communication skills and ability to search out the address. Thank you.

We were able to travel, and dine very easily wherever we went, with wonderful restaurants in Vietri and nearby Salerno. The boat trip along the coast to Capri was really worth the effort, even with the force 3 gales providing almost too much excitement!

We left Asteria after 8 nights, wishing we had more time. We also felt as if we had made real friends. We will be back ……

Bella Italia - dream holidays on the Amalfi-coast

  • 5 of 5

In August 2016 we (Family of 5) spent 1 week in the Villa Asteria. In the nicely furnished house we felt very comfortable. It meets all the requirements of space, cleanliness and comfort. The most amazing thing for me was the view of the Amalfi Coast. From the balcony, terrace, living room, kitchen, you see the steel blue Mediterranean Sea and the coast.

2 beaches are to reach on foot from the house, the purchases must be done with the car. There are many ways in Vietri sul mare and neighboring villages to find a restaurant.

The owner is very friendly, helpful and reliable and has given us many tips.

It is with both the car and the train relatively quickly in Napoli, Pompei, Paestum ... and has so many ways to pass the time.

We can definitely recommend the Villa Asteria. The holiday was great!

A Gem on the Amalfi Coast!

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous spacious house, tastefully furnished with panoramic views.

The owner was extremely helpful and used her personal knowledge of the area to give us loads of tips and all the information we needed and much more. Her help was invaluable and added a lot to our stay.

There is a steep path down to get to Vietri and Vietri beach, and once there you can walk along the beach to Vietri itself.

We loved traveling by bus to other towns along the coast. We walked to Vietri regularly to get supplies, shopping etc. There's a great walk up to a couple of small villages on the hill above the house (Raito and Albori)

Vietri itself is a really charming, lovely wee place, and not nearly as busy with tourists as other towns on the Amalfi coast.

We would recommend this house to people who like to walk and explore, and who prefer the less touristy villages and countryside. We loved the location and the property itself, and we were so great full for all the help the owner gave us to make our stay fantastic!

Wonderful holiday in Vietri sul mare

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful large house with panoramic views from the upper and lower patios, very spacious, nicely furnished, well equipped. I would definitely come back, and would recommend this place to people who like to walk - there is a steep climb up and down to Vietri sul mare if visitors don't have a car. The property was a great fit for our group of four as we enjoy walking and being away from tourism.

There is a nice swimming beach below the house.

We walked to Vietri almost daily, took the SITA bus to Amalfi and Cetara, and walked to Raito and Albori from a private footpath behind the house.

We had many lovely meals at local restaurants and cooked some ourselves!

AnnaMaria was extremely helpful in every way, met us at train station in Salerno and arranged for a driver to the house, took us shopping in Salerno, provided tons of information about local sites. She responded to all our questions very quickly.

una piacevole vacanza

  • 5 of 5

Con la mia famiglia ho trascorso le festività di fine anno nel casale Asteria. Una piacevole vacanza. La signora Annamaria, la proprietaria, è una persona molto cortese e disponibile per qualunque necessità dei suoi ospiti. Il casale corrisponde alle fotografie ed è accessoriato per ogni necessità. I locali sono spaziosi e molto puliti. Il casale è di facile accesso dalla Statale e possiede un parcheggio privato.

Il 31/12 abbiamo mangiato in terrazzo dal quale si gode un'incantevole vista sul Golfo di Salerno. Un'ottima base di partenza sia per escursioni in Costiera Amalfitana, sia per i siti archeologici, sia per le città di Salerno e Napoli.
