Casa Alata is a charming apartment which faces the sun and the sea. It sleeps four people. From Casa Alata you will enjoy a breathtaking view of the sea and of the coast of Amalfi. Casa Alata is 70 square meters (750 square feet). It features a spacious private terrace with a view of the sea, air conditioning (please read description below to check in which rooms the units are installed), winter heating and WI-FI Internet access.

You will be roughly 3 km (1.8 miles) from Amalfi. You will find the closest restaurant at 1.5 km (roughly 1 mile), shops at 300 meters (990 feet), the stop for the local bus and the SITA bus a few meters (feet) away and the closest beach at roughly 1 km (0.6 miles) including 400 stairway steps. You will reach Casa Alata from the street level going down a 40-meters (130-feet) public walkway that includes approximately 35 stairway steps.

You will not need a car to stay at Casa Alata. If you do have one, you will be able to park it along the public roads (the actual distance might vary depending on the availability of parking spaces) or in a private parking lot downtown (where a space can be reserved).

Casa Alata is located in a prominent position on a picturesque stretch of rocky coast about 100 meters (about 328 feet) above sea level. It overlooks the sea really close by.

Casa Alata is part of a small hamlet of old houses gathered on the top of a promontory, all facing the sea and the sun and also surrounded by typical terraced gardens where lemon trees are cultivated. Here live the inhabitants of Amalfi, with their tranquil lifestyle away from crowds of tourists. The houses are distributed around a tiny old church and connected through stone stairways which descend from the upper part of the coast to the area down below, the beach and the sea.

At least once, if you are in good shape, leave the car and the bus aside and go down towards the sea through this old pathway. It is a walk which will fill with you joy and energy: throughout the whole path you will be embraced by the vivid colors and perfumes of the Mediterranean vegetation and attracted by the enchanting scenery of blue sea right in front of you…

You will have several choices regarding beaches to go to. You can take the bus and reach the beach of Amalfi. From there it is also possible to take small boats which take bathers to splendid small inlets along the coast.

One of these inlets, the so-called beach of Santa Croce, is reached even on foot from Villa Alata, and the walk is definitely one not to be missed if you feel like climbing down 400 steps dug into the rock overlooking the sea.

To go back up you can get small boats which in only 10 minutes take you on a splendid ride on the sea to the port of Amalfi, where you can take the bus to go back to the house. During spring/summer all the beaches feature open restaurants and bars, rental of umbrellas and deck chairs, and also small boats connecting to places nearby.

In Amalfi, you can also go scuba diving and practice water sports.

The Campania region

Campania region is the beginning of the 'mezzogiorno'. Translating as the 'midday' the phrase evokes the sunbaked south. And Campania - with its ancient Greek and Roman towns, rumbling volcanoes and glittering blue coastline, at times evokes Classical Greece as much as modern Italy. You could be a million miles from bureaucratic and businesslike Milan.

Throughout much of its history Campania has been at the centre of Western Civilisation's most significant entities. The area was colonised by Ancient Greeks and was within Magna Græcia, until the Roman Republic began to dominate. During the Roman era the area was highly respected as a place of culture by the emperors, where it balanced Greco-Roman culture. The area had many duchies and principalities during the Middle Ages, in the hands of the Byzantine Empire and some Lombards.

It was under the Normans that the smaller independent states were brought together as part of a sizable European kingdom, known as the Kingdom of Sicily, before the mainland broke away to form the Kingdom of Naples. It was during this period that especially elements of Spanish, French and Aragonese culture touched Campania. Later the area became the central part of the Two Sicilies under the Bourbons, until the Italian unification of 1860 when it became part of the new state Italy.

The capital city of Campania is Naples. Campania is rich in culture, especially in regards to gastronomy, music, architecture, archeological and ancient sites such as Pompeii, Herculaneum and Paestum. The name of Campania itself is derived from Latin, as the Romans knew the region as Campania felix, which translates into English as "fortunate countryside". The rich natural sights of Campania make it highly important in the tourism industry, especially along the Amalfi Coast, Cilento Coast, Mount Vesuvius and the island of Capri.

Amalfi Coast

You will have several choices regarding beaches to go to. You can take the bus and reach the beach of Amalfi. From there it is also possible to take small boats which take bathers to splendid small inlets along the coast.

One of these inlets, the so-called beach of Santa Croce, is reached even on foot from Villa Eufemia, and the walk is definitely one not to be missed if you feel like climbing down 400 steps dug into the rock overlooking the sea.

To go back up you can get small boats which in only 10 minutes take you on a splendid ride on the sea to the port of Amalfi, where you can take the bus to go back to the house. During spring/summer all the beaches feature open restaurants and bars, rental of umbrellas and deck chairs, and also small boats connecting to places nearby.

In Amalfi, you can also go scuba diving and practice water sports.

Amalfi, situated at the mouth of the Valley of the Mills, with its characteristic groups of houses clinging to the rocks, overlooks the sea. It is a maze of narrow alleyways comprised of archways, portals and ancient towers that stand guard over the town.

The origin of the town date back to the IV century. During late medieval times Amalfi became an independent maritime republic, rich and opulent due to intense trade and cultural exchanges with the Arab and Byzantine world. The city was renowned for its trade and diplomatic relations throughout the Mediterranean, Flavio Gioia’s invention and development of the marine compass and the “Amalfitan Tables” - the first maritime legal code. It was also during this time that mills of Amalfi began to produce paper rather than parchment. The paper was used for all the official acts and documents of the Court of the Duchy of Naples. The particular variety of Amalfitan lemon “the Sfusato Amalfitano” crossed the borders of Europe, and was exported throughout the world.

The architectural and artistic values of its monuments and historical buildings, the indescribable beauty of its landscapes, its folklore and traditions have made, and still make, Amalfi a place without comparison, so much so that it has been said: “For an Amalfitan the day he goes to heaven is just like any other day”.
