Guestbook comments from the owner

Good Morning,

We are two weeks back from our trip to Europe and wanted to take the time to thank you again for our wonderful stay at Sant'Elia. It was a perfect base for us to see much of the beauty of your Amalfi Coast. We would have a relaxing breakfast on the patio, venture up the stairs and take the bus for our day trip and then return home to once again have a lovely dinner on the patio. It is how we enjoy traveling and your villa was a perfect for us. We will highly recommend your property to others and hope they get to enjoy the Amalfi Coast as well.

Thanks again fro your wonderful hospitality,

Dan and Mary Meyers

Peaceful Oasis on the Amalfi Coast

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Holiday House. The house is located in Furore in a residential neighborhood in a quiet and soothing location. Furore is a peaceful Amalfi town and is great for relaxation and contemplation. It is not for those looking for shopping and nightlife. For us, the Holiday House and Furore is just what we were looking for.

The House itself is accessed by steps (probably 35 steps or so) so the property is not good for those with walking problems. The owner, Pasquale and his wife, Giovanna, helped us haul our luggage up the steps upon our arrival and were helpful getting us settled and acclimated to the Amalfi Coast. Pasquale helped us hire a driver, Rosario, to tour the coast.Rosario was a terrific guide and driver. I highly recommend a driver or bus service to tour the coast as the Amalfi road is treacherous. Fortunately, you do not have to navigate the Amalfi road to reach the Holiday House.

The most brilliant feature of the house is the superb porch and yard. The view of the ocean and coast is spectacular and serene. We dined-in for dinner twice to enjoy the view and solitude. The house itself is ideal for a family of four or a couple. I think it would be a bit cramped for two couples as the kitchen is the only common space. That said, both bedrooms were of ample size and there were two full bathrooms that were modern and clean.

There is an interesting walking path near the house and a local restraurant that served home cooked Italy an fare. The parking space was appreciated as parking on the Amalfi Coast is a rare commodity. The house is not convenient to the Furore Beach - it is a thousand steps down and the beach itself is small and gravelly so I wouldn't recommend the house to those looking for a beach holiday Also, there is no parking near the beach.

We loved our stay and would not hesitate to rent again if we are fortunate enough to return to the Amalfi Coast.

Thanks Pasquale and Giovanna!

Incomparable Amalfi Coast View!!

  • 5 of 5

We just ended a wonderful 5-night stay at the Holiday House, and we left only because we had airplane tickets home the next day! This large, clean apartment was the perfect spot for doing nothing at all, or for using as a home base for exploring the area. It is every bit as beautiful as the pictures, with the added bonus of quiet nights and peaceful days. Please note that there seem to be reviews for more than one property on this listing; ours is for the Holiday House pictured (with the beautiful old rose tree). I mention this because you really do need a car at this location. It's nearly two kilometers downhill from the Furore bus stop and market, making walking impractical, if not impossible. With that being said, a wonderful parking spot is included with the house, and we simply drove up the hill and parked near the market whenever we wanted to catch the bus to Amalfi or just to shop for groceries. The Furore market had wonderful fresh local produce and enough meat, cheese and pasta for cooking excellent meals and enjoying them on the deck, which I highly recommend. The entire Amalfi coast area is magical and worth exploring, but for us, the very best times were spent on our deck and terrace at Holiday House with a glass of wine, a plate of fresh tomato bruschetta, and one of the best views in the world!

Lovely location. Beautiful view.

  • 3 of 5

This is a wonderful location to explore the Amalfi Coast. The property (L'Incanto) was clean. The furniture is uncomfortable and cheap since it is Ikea and the sofas are futons. The bathrooms were great. Kitchen could be better equippped. Local store was very convenient. Important to have a parking spot on this coast and L'Incanto had a great one. The spa down below was closed.

Most people travelling today do not lug huge travel guides. They keep travel information on a computer. There was no internet here which made our information inaccessible. The owner has an internet cafe. He should know that internet access is important to most travelers today. Without it we were unable to contact the owner of our next stop and it really messed up our arrival in Rome.

ILNido-A real gem!!!

  • 5 of 5

WE stayed here for a week and were very pleased with this one bedroom villa. It was very clean, updated and had a beautiful view from both the large terrace and interior rooms. We ate dinner almost every night at the Bacco Hotel down the street (short 5 minute walk). The food there was excellent and very reasonable with a great patio ocean view. Furore is remote but only a 25 minute bus drive to Amalfi and the bus stops just past the villa and also at the Bacco where you can buy your bus tickets. Hosts Giovanna and Pasquale were most helpful and will provide local information. If you do not have a car we highly recommend letting Pasquale arrange transportation to and from Naples. It will be less stressul, safer and will save you lots of time. It is well worth the extra money!

All in all, a wonderful stay in a most beautiful place. Thanks for having us!!!

Amazing home on the Amalfi Coast!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights at lovely L'Incanto, part of a 12 night visit to Italy. Honestly, I could have spent the whole 12 nights here and been very happy... The home is beautiful, very spacious with a huge great room (kitchen / living room). We are a family of 4 -- two parents and two teenagers - and there was always plenty of space. The washer / dryer was very helpful as well. We spent a ton of time on the deck, which has the most amazing view of the Tyrrhenian Sea. It made for a very relaxing time, especially compared to Italy's busy cities.

We had a car, and given the parking situation on the Amalfi Coast, I can tell you the importance of the reserved parking. From L'Incanto, we explored Pompeii, Capri, Sorrento, Salerno, and of course, Amalfi, where we stopped numerous times for groceries and other shopping. The little market in Furore was also very helpful. The food is so amazing in this region, if you at all enjoy cooking, the ingredients you have access to are the freshest and most flavorful you will find anywhere. I think they can feed all of Italy from here.

Speaking of food, one of our most memorable meals out was at Serafina, an Agriturismo, which is run by Dominic, his wife, and two daughters. Everything you eat there was grown / processed there, including the wine and olive oil. An experience you'd be hard pressed to match. Another great meal was in Amalfi at La Taverna di Masaniello -- wonderfully prepared Italian food, like my Noni used to make.

Also well worth it is the hike down to the Fiordo (Fjord). About 1300 steps down from the house, but well worth the trip there and back. The beach and swimming were fantastic, and the scenery was gorgeous.

After our trip, we evaluated each stop we had made, and our family's favorite, hands down, was the time we had spent at L'Incanto. The cities were nice in their own right, but all of us enjoyed the peace and relaxation of the Amalfi Coast, and the beautiful deck of L'Incanto, overlooking the sea.

Pascuale and Giovanna were very helpful as well. You will not be disappointed in staying here.

Great place, minor glitches

  • 5 of 5

The setting and view from this L'Incanto are simply spectacular. One could spend his entire stay just sitting on the deck. The apartment is very clean and is spacious by European standards. The kitchen was very well equipped. There is a small grocery store with a very friendly owner/manager that has virtually anything you would need. By Amalfi Coast standards this apartment is proximate to all points, Positano, Amalfi, Ravello, Sorrento, etc. The owners Pasquale and Giovanna are also eager to provide good service. A few minor glitches: ran out of dishwashing soap and bathroom soap and there was no laundry detergent. The shower head in one bathroom leaked (which is not a problem if you favor baths). There was only one key so coordination is required if folks want to do different things. Also, if internet access is important that will be an issue. We were told there was WiFi, but we given several different passwords, none of which worked. With those caveats I would highly recommend this apartment, as well as Restaurant Serafina down the road.
