  • We never saw Alfonso but we saw the housekeeper only twice

  • We loved staying in the wonderful town of Minori. This small, untouristy spot on the Amalfi coast is perfect for rest and relaxation. The apartment is well situated 50m from the bus stop and even closer to the beach. It is right on the busy main road but this didn't bother us at all. The apartment was clean and a good size however there were minimal amenities provided. Wifi was down for the first couple of days and once Alfonso managed to get it working it was a weak signal at best. We loved the restaurant two doors up and ate there twice! Overall an excellent option for an Amalfi getaway.

  • Отличная квартира на берегу моря, все соответствует фотографиям. В квартире есть все необходимое. Приятный и отзывчивый хозяин.
    Единственный минус - очень медленный интернет

  • We stayed awhile in Minori during our trip to Italy. Minori was a great little town! The studio was in a nice location, close to cafes, restaurants, and markets. Also right next to the ocean. Was noisy at times because it is right next to the main road, but didn't bother us much as we were mostly out exploring! Studio was the same as in pictures! Perfect for the two of us.
    Alfonso was helpful with any questions that we had!

    Would recommend!

  • The apartment in Minori was just as pictured and described. It was very clean, lots of character, and charming. You only had to walk a few yards and you were at the beach and the beautiful Mediterranean. You also had a view of the sea from the porch and the picture window. The WIFI was excellent and fast. The tv had quite a few channels in English, which was a treat. The town of Minori was like you would expect a small Italian town to be, lots of small shops and a few small food stores. The people were friendly and helped us when we had a question. We had a basket of strawberries from a vegetable shop and they were the best strawberries we had ever eaten!
    Alfonso and his wife were very helpful and gracious. Our only regret was it rained the three days and nights we were there, with only an hour or so now and then when it didn't rain. But that is what umbrellas are for. We were sorry we couldn't stay longer. We would surely stay here again if we were going to be in the area.
