Description from owner

Description

La Bifora is a welcoming two-story apartment on the top floor of an ancient house dating back to the 12th century. The building ( with no elevator) is located in the oldest and most central area of Amalfi , only 50 meters away from the famous Piazza del Duomo di Amalfi (Square of the Cathedral of Amalfi), which is the rendezvous of the town.

At the foot of the famous stairway to the Duomo, you will find elegant shops, bars, and restaurants with outdoor tables. The promenade along the sea, the beach, all the other tourist attractions and the Piazza Flavio Gioia are a few meters away from the apartment.

Piazza Flavio Gioia is the terminal either for the SITA buses that connect all the villages along the Amalfi coast and the tourist port to board ferries to reach Positano, Capri, Sorrento, Ischia, Naples, and Salerno.

La Bifora features a wide private terrace with views over the beautiful Moorish bell-tower and the irregular red cotta rooftops of the town centre with the sea in the distance.

Here, in fine weather, you can lounge, read, and eat alfresco, a real rarity in a private home right in the heart of the town

The interiors have been recently refurbished throughout to provide a comfortable accommodation.

The ground floor level is paved with cotto tiles; instead, the first floor, which hosts the sleeping area, is paved with parquet and features sloped ceiling and characteristic exposed wood beams. The nice and modern furniture in the white colour in all rooms make the apartment welcoming and bright.

A car is not necessary in order to stay at Casa La Bifora . The town offers great bus and taxi services. But if you have a car, it is possible to reserve , for a a daily fee of 20 EUR , a private parking lot , roughly 800 meters away from the house. (Parking is only possible in paid parking areas)

The house welcomes you into a living room which is spacious and comfortably furnished with wicker two seater sofa and armchairs around a coffee table, a satellite TV. This room is full of light thanks to French doors giving access to the terrace and a window facing onto a lemon garden.

The magnificent terrace, with a fantastic view over Amalfi and the bell- tower of the famous Cathedral, is accessible from the living room by climbing 5 steps. The terrace is equipped with a dining table sitting 4 people shaded by a sun umbrella, 4 sun loungers and an external shower in a corner.

“Perfectly located, Close to the beach.”

Reviewed 18 Jan 2020

Ideally located, roomy house. Well equipped. Right next to Duomo so the bells could be annoying if you had all the windows open. Antoinetta was an angel and helped us immensely with transport from/to Naples airport. A perfect stay only spoiled by the uncomfortable beds. We had a wonderful Xmas/New year there & the locals made us feel so welcome. Not a great deal to do at that time of year if you don't have a car, but the bonus is it's sunny but not too hot & has less tourists!
