The vacation of a lifetime!!!
This wasn't our first visit to the Amalfi coast, having done the quick tour thing, so we thought that we knew what to expect, but the 2 weeks that we just spent in this charming, little house far surpassed those expectations. The house sits high upon a hill overlooking the breathtaking Mediterranean almost smack dab in the middle between Amalfi town and Positano. I cannot overstate the charm, beauty and tranquility of this property. While it might lack a few of the modern day conveniences we have come to expect, I actually managed to live quite well without my Quisinart, Keurig and huge kitchen!!! The coffee that we made in the stove top espresso pot was far superior to what we have back home, anyway. I have now purchased the same pot to use at home! The 4 burner gas cook-top was perfectly adequate, once we got the hang of getting it to stay lit. It is an automatic light, but you just have to hold in the knob a few more clicks for it to stay lit.
However, there are a few drawbacks of which you need to be aware. The steps up to the terrace can be a challenge if you are of a "certain age" and carrying luggage. There is a certain amount of fitness required, but we are both in our 70's and managed pretty well. Also, the second floor ceilings are quite low. I'm 5'8", no problem; my husband is 6'7", big problem!!! After several painful bumps on the head, lesson learned. The main bath with shower is on the main floor, so after the first few days, he only went upstairs to go to bed, therefore decreasing the probability of head trauma.
The village is unbelievably charming, but somewhat limited on choice of dining and shopping. Night life is non-existent, so if you're looking for a more exciting vacation, you will be disappointed, but if you want beauty, realism and warm, friendly folks, look no further. Be sure to try the restaurant down the road Le Bonta del Capo. The food is simply the best in all of Almafi and very reasonably priced. The chef is Fiore and he is who you will check in with upon arrival in Conca. He is wonderful and very helpful.
A few things to remember. This is not a 5-star hotel. Remember to pack your own wash cloths, bar soap and shampoo as well as beach towels. Almost everything else is supplied or you can purchase in the store next to the Le Bonta. Take the Sita buses everywhere you go on the coast. Talk to the locals - if you are friendly and outgoing, you will be blessed with a warm reception.
In need of TLC and more..
We are generally not fussy people, but the apartment definitely needs some attention to improve the comfort factor. The shower head in the upstairs shower room was missing, making it unusable. Only bath towels were available and not beach towels (so be prepared to rent at the beach club). The wifi is very sporadic and weak and there should be a 2nd fan for the bedroom upstairs as it does get very warm. The TV did not work and we would expected it to. A thoughtful touch would have been to include a small selection of DVDs too! The chef at the local restaurant (a fantastic place, btw) is the property manager, but honestly, he has his hands full and we did not feel like trying to find a convenient time to ask for his assistance with this and the other shortcomings. Outside of a few pamphlets which were not of much use, there was nothing to help a short term tenant with local diversions (beach options, restaurants, etc.). Nor an "operating manual" for navigating the features of the property, though to be fair, not much is needed as this is a bare bones place. The beach at the bottom of the hill was great fun and we did enjoy renting a boat from Amalfi to zip up to Positano for lunch. It's a good thing we're well travelled and resourceful (and could tap into 3G/4G for the internet without concern for cost), because otherwise this property would have been even less desirable. It does have great potential and the area is beautiful. Our 3 young boys didn't complain for a second about walking down to the beach either; in fact, it made for a good exercise and a great adventure.
I am really sorry that you did not find the apartment like you wished.
If you sent me an email immediately I would have contacted Fiorenzo and everything would have been perfect.
I have personally been at the house 2 days ago...as soon as I was back.from the States.
The tv was not working as someone unplugged the antenna cable from the wall. It just needed to be plugged in.
I purchased 2 new big fans and they were delivered at the restaurant few weeks ago. Fiorenzo forgot to bring them in the apt.
The wifi sometimes was weak as it seems that a previous guest moved the hotspot from the correct place where it was getting the stronger signal.
All these issues would have been solved in just 5 minutes if you contacted Fiorenzo or me by email.
About the shower and the beach towels is specified in the house description that there is one full bath ( with shower) and an half bath ( We actually want to remove the shower upstair as the water will damage the wood floor) and also that beach towels were not provided.
Right now TV is perfectly working in the house as well as wifi..even if sometimes the signal get lost expecially in july and August where there are many big boats which create interferences with their radio signals.
( The hotspot is portable anyway..so it can be placed also outsude the terrace or taken around with you in order to have wifi everywhere...also on the beach if you want to.)
And two new fans are on the bedrooms upstairs.
Anyway I hope you had a nice time in Conca dei Marini and you enjoyed the Amalfi Coast.
Beautiful and Peaceful Location
If you want to see the Almafi coast, we would highly recommend this place in Conca dei Marini. The porch is exactly as the picture shows, and you have this view from every window in the house. It worked great for our family of four. The Almafi coast is not easy to get too, but beautiful once you are there! We loved Le Bontà del Capo restaurant and made reservations there each night. It was an easy walk from this location and there is a small market next door that we could buy things for breakfast or lunch. It was nice to have a kitchen. You need to be a confident driver to drive a car here, and in good physical shape if you plan to walk the many flights of steps to the nearest beach. We learned that July was a very hot month to visit all of Italy.....even on the coast.
A very nice place with a wonderful seaview!
We had a lovely visit in Stefano's house and spent most of our "home-time" on the terrass, you can see in the picture. As Stefano, during our visit, was in the US we were well taken care of by Fiore. He works as a cook at the excellent restaurant "Le Bonta del Capo" nearby. Visit it and you will not be disappointed!
As the beach is many steps away, we recommend using the little white community bus down to hotel Belvedere and when you go back you can ask the driver to stop just outside the house. In each direction you just pay 1 €. A very good service!
All people in the village were very nice and we felt as a part of the community.
We recommend the place!!
We had four nights here and loved the apartment. The apartment itself had everything we needed and was nice and cool, but the outside space and views were undoubtedly the standout features. What we loved most was the location. Away from the hustle and bustle of the main towns, the village is peaceful, relaxing and super friendly. We arrived on Sunday afternoon, and started to worry about not having rented a car, but the village has a great store, a small plaza with a few bars, and a wonderful restaurant so there is no real reason to leave. It is also very easy and cheap to catch the bus if you want to go further out, so I don't think we would have used a car much anyway. The restaurant, Le Bonta'del Capo, was a great place to eat, with a great atmosphere, especially on Sunday night, and they made us feel really welcome. So overall I'm really happy with the choice we made and would go back in a flash.
I cannot say enough about this apartment. Well appointed, beautiful views from all windows and the terrace and "location, location, location." You should, however, have a car to enjoy the full value of this apartment. It comes with a parking pass for the area which makes having a car that much easier. The real value, in my mind, is the location. An hour or so in each direction are the more populated cities of the Coast, places that were great to visit, but that do not have the peace and tranquility you will find here. While visiting those places was fantastic, it was wonderful to return to the quiet and views from this apartment. If you chose to not travel for a day or two, no worries. There are several great places to eat in walking distance. Our favorite: Le Bonta del Capo. Food was the best we had on the Coast, prices were the best and, not to sound like a broke record -- the views, the views.... Chef and is staff are all great people. This is simply a magical place, one I will not hesitate to return to. Also within "walking" distance is the beach of Conca dei Marini. OK, I would not walk it from the apartment, but about 1/2 way down is a parking garage. This is the closest you are getting to the beach before you have no choice but to walk. From the garage you have roughly 400 stairs to go. It will take some time to get there, and get back, but there is plenty to do when you get there. A few eateries are there and from the beach you can take water taxis to other areas of the marina. Bring Euros with you as you will need to rent at least a chair, maybe umbrella. "Beach" is a lose term here. More like rock-covered-shore that leads into the water that has only more rocks underfoot. Bring water shoes or flipflops. You will not want to be walking barefoot!
