Spacious apartment near Amalfi
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Maddalena’s apartment. It was very spacious and just a 10 min walk from the town of Amalfi. The kitchen was well equipped to cook meals and the view from the terrace was beautiful. Communication and access to the apartment were easy with Maddalena.
Great Location, But . . . .
We loved Atrani, a quaint little town without the tourist-y hustle and bustle of Amalfi, which is only a 15-20 minute walk up the road. The beach is nice and very close to the property. Maddalena, the property owner was really nice and the flat itself is serviceable, but there are a few things we wish we had known before making our reservation. First, the entry, bedrooms and kitchen/living area are on three different "floors" with very steep spiral stairs in between and there are no handrails. While the property description says it's "wheelchair inaccessible", these stairs were difficult even for someone with only an arthritic hip! Secondly, between the church bells that chime every 15 minutes (24 hours a day) and the incredibly loud neighbors who are up at 6 a.m., we had to wear earplugs to bed. And finally, it's the little things that make the difference. The bath towels provided were so small and tread-bear, they looked more like rags; there was no microwave that we could find; no place to hang the laundry to dry; and we had an ant invasion in the kitchen when we left cookies out. All in all, we can't give this property more than a three-star rating, even with the beautiful location and nice beach.
Incredible town - unique property
We absolutely loved our time in Atrani and this property certainly contributed to our pleasurable stay. The property consists of a number of levels connected by stairways. At the top of the house are an additional 3 outdoor patios, each on higher than the next. The view from all is absolutely amazing with the top rooftop being our favorite hangout. From here you can see the ocean, the surrounding hills and the town of Atrani.
Maddallena obviously takes great pride in this property and it was well maintained and decorated. We particularly liked the columns and rock work accenting the interior stairways.
The villa is well situated in Atrani both to the beach and to the main square.
Atrani had a small town character we loved. By the end of our 3 night stay we were on friendly terms with a number of the locals and had favorite breakfast and dinner spots. The town is only minutes from Amalfi which is full of tourists during the day.
We walked from Atrani to Ravello and back. It is a beautiful hike but does require some level of fitness.
There has been some mention in previous reviews of the church bells which do ring every quarter hour. We quickly got used to them and they became background noise which added to the character of the town but you should be aware of them.
If you are driving a rental vehicle you can drop bags at the villa (or very close to) and park in a parking garage on the main road for $20 EU a day.
In summary, we really enjoyed staying at Maddalena’s place and would highly recommend it.
nice location away from crowds of Amalfi
comfortable place. only problem is 24/7 church bells and neighbors yelling to each other out their windows
The bells are one of the expressions of the history of Atrani. They are part of the Church of San Salvatore de’ Birecto in which was crowned the Duke of the Ancient Maritime Republic of Amalfi and where still today September 1 is re-evoking the Byzantine New Year with the attribution of the recognition of Duke to a prominent personality level international .The custom of talking from one window to another takes us back in time when there was no phone, but it was still essential to communicate. These and other elements make Atrani unique because it is able to offer tourists that human dimension that wants to find in a time of relaxation, far from frenetic and stressful rhythms. Atrani is this and my apartment, typical vertical construction of the eleventh century. offers these emotions. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to express them!
Great property in Atrani!
The 2 of us loved our visit to Atrani and our stay at this apartment. This apartment is right in the middle of the town square which has four restaurants, a gelato shop, and a couple of little markets that we could buy water, snacks, beer and wine. Outside the square is public beach where you can rent chairs and umbrella for the day. The apartment is clean, nice, and has a double balcony with a beautiful view of the water. It’s an easy and safe walk to Amalfi and a foot workout to Ravello. In Amalfi you can take Ferry’s to Positano, Capri, and other nearby cities for a day trip. Atrani is a great, quiet, and friendly community. We would definitely go back!
Atrani is the perfect location on the Amalfi Coast. Close enough to Amalfi and Ravello to enjoy it's splendor, but not over crowded with tourists. Madalena's place has all the comforts of home, with direct access to the beach and a gorgeous view of the area. Highly recommended!
From airport of naples there are a lot of public servinces that Will Take you in Salerno , and from Salerno to the amalfi coast
