Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
Casa Amena takes the upper floor of a beautiful and age-old house surrounded by the green of lemon orchards. It is situated in Minori in a central and panoramic residential area. Minori is an enthralling small town near Amalfi nestled on a narrow valley which stretches up to the sea, where it becomes a bay in a crescent moon shape.
From the house and the terrace of Casa Rosalia, you will feast your eyes on the village of Minori, on the rocky walls rich in verdant lemon cultivations, and on the seascape. The prevailing colours of such splendid panorama are the bright green of lemon orchards and the blue of the sky and the sea.
The sea and the large sandy beach of Minori are about 300 meters (about 984 feet) from the house. You can reach them on foot after going for a pleasant walk. On the beach, you will find bars and restaurants, and in case you want umbrellas and deck chairs, they are available for rental as well. The beach is framed by a long public garden (so-called Lungomare) which is a place where you can go for a stroll, sit at the tables of outdoor cafes, or even go shopping.
Minori is famous for its sweet specialties, and you have to try the candies and desserts of its pasticcerias (bakeries)!
You don’t need a car during your stay at Casa Rosalia, but if you have one, you can book a pay parking space.
100 meters (about 328 feet) from the house, there are shops and restaurants. It is also possible to order delivery services from shops.
The house is beautiful, airy, and bright. The charming exterior spaces will enable you to enjoy great moments of relaxation outdoors.
You will arrive at the house through a short pedestrian path which consists of 70 steps, including those which lead to the entrance of the house. You will enter a spacious living-room elegantly furnished with a table, chairs, armchairs, and a couch. A small corridor leads to the bedrooms. In one bedroom, you will find a double bed, and in the other, two single beds. From the double bedroom, you can reach the bathroom with shower. The bathroom actually has two doors, and it is reached from the living-room as well.
The kitchen is equipped with a four-burner stove, a fridge with freezer, an oven, and a dishwasher. There is also a room with a washing-machine.
The house is elegantly and completely furnished.
Upon request, small pets are allowed into the house.
From the living-room, you will have access to a large terrace paved in terracotta and furnished with a gazebo, a table, chairs, and sun loungers. The terrace, sun-drenched, overlooks Minori, the sea, and verdant lemon orchards.
You will find it refreshing to spend time on the terrace while enjoying breakfast during the morning and its fresh air and while dining outdoors and delighting yourself with the sweet hours of sunset. On the terrace, you will even find a barbecue corner.

* The owner speaks great English and his wife and son a little. They are very helpful. You can also charter your own boat from them, which we did. Their son took us to Capri for the day and it was a fabulous way to see the island and coastline. Take a picnic and then go for a swim off the boat!
* We also found the parking useful. Try to rent a smaller car as the roads are quite narrow, but we were able to explore a lot of the coast. We overheard many travellers complaining about the time wasted always waiting for a local bus.
* A great restaurant in Minori was Restaurant La Botte and we always finished our night at Pasticceria De Riso enjoying a pastry and some limoncello.
* If you always go to the same lido they will repeatedly drop the rental price on the sun loungers.
* Definitely do the hike up to Ravello.
The Campania region
Minori is the most ancient inhabited centre of the coast. Yet in the 1st century AD it was residence of roman aristocrats, and the Villa Romana, rich of mosaics, stuccos and frescos, witness the grandness of these people and the consideration that they had of this place.
Minori was an important arsenal of the Republic of Amalfi, and followed the same fate of the Republic also when it declined.
In the following century Minori started to become independent and to have its own economy.
Minori is an enchanting village in the heart of the Amalfitan Coast at a short distance from Amalfi, Ravello, Positano and Scala.
Minori is an ideal place for a relaxing holidays, for sightseeing and excursions by car/bus or by boat, to discover and admire the incomparable beauties of the Amalfitan Coast..
