Be part of authentic Italian familyhouse far out in the countryside!
First of all, we had a great time in Casa Mena and Tovere!!!!!!
Filomena and her daughter Rosa and all the other family members and dogs and cats surrounding us during our stay in the nice and clean apartment smack in the middle of a big family house were very sweet and helpful even though it was a bit difficult understanding each other sometimes , which led to some surprises, that could have caused us severe problems, if my mother my brother and I had not taken it with good spirit and had not been in physical good shape.
By surprises I mean, that the advertisement and description of the house really doesn’t let you know, that you will be very much in the middle of a big family very far away from public transportation. We had to walk at least 3 kilometer down AND UP the mountain to get to a bus most days. At least we came back home in even better shape 😉�.
We enjoyed our stay and the amazing view and the authentic Italian country life. Even though it was a bit loud and not very private around us at times.
We had chosen this particular house, because of a certain picture of a very nice rooftop deck and a promise and a picture of 50 m down a small path to the sea/beach.
As it turned out ,the rooftop deck was used by the grandparents and disappointingly not part of our rental anyway.
The path to the sea was not working and the walk down would have taken us several hours.
Also there is no supermarkets or groceries nearby.
Again! We had a great and fun time in Casa Mena because we decided to make it work and because we loved all the fun animals and situations around us, and of course the impeccable stunning scenery, we just wish we had known certain things before arriving. I did send a lot of questions, but I guess language made it difficult to get straight answers.
So if you don’t like dogs,or have no car, or have problems with walking long walks up a mountain,or are looking for a romantic private quiet getaway this might not be the place for you.
Magnifique vue sur la baie
Nous avons passé trois magnifiques semaines dans cette location extrêmement bien placée et très agréable. Hôtes charmants. Mais quelques bémols: la location n'est pas à l'endroit indiqué mais dans une ruelle plus bas, très difficile d'accès et loin de la rue. Il faudrait le signaler. Les voisins hurlent toute la journée sur leurs enfants et c'est franchement pénible. Il faudrait également rentrer les chiens la nuit car ils aboient sous les fenêtres (ouvertes) et nous ont fait passer quelques mauvaises nuits. Pour finir les points négatifs, la cuisine est très spartiate. Une seule poêle, pas de quoi essorer la salade, pas de presse agrumes etc. Les feux gaz sont tous rouillés et la plaque électrique est HS. Pas de prises sur le plan de travail ! impossible d'utiliser le micro ondes à moins de le mettre par terre...
Donc, des choses à revoir mais encore une fois une famille charmante, un endroit de rêve et de superbes vacances !
Casa muito confortável, com uma bela vista para o mar. O único ponto ruim é o chuveiro, o banheiro é muito apertado e não tem box, fica tudo imundado rs É recomendável alugar um carro pra vir, pois a casa fica afastada da cidade da Amalfi. Fora isso, a estadia foi ótima! A anfitriã Filomena foi muito simpática e solicita, nos ajudou bastante.
The apartment is located in a hilly area, very scenic, outside the busy and noisy, but not far from the places of interest. (5 km Amalfi, Positano 7 km, Ravello 6 km). The nearest beach is to Conca dei Marini (3 km), a place of unique beauty with breathtaking sea and countryside, near which there are shops selling local handicrafts (ceramics), typical restaurants where you can sample the delights locali.La queen of Amalfi, Amalfi is a few miles , we find the famous cathedral of St. Andrew, the port from where boats leave for excursions to Capri and Amalfi, famous among other things for being the oldest republics Marinare.Ravello famous for its villas, Rufolo, Cimbrone dear to the likes of Richard Wagner, which also features the Auditorium. then there Positano with its typical narrow streets, its exclusive boutiques, its beaches beautiful and exclusive
