About this listing
Casa amena is a lovely 75-square-meter (about 807 square feet) apartment which sleeps four people. It has a 60-square-meter (about 646 square feet) terrace with a pergola and a great view of Minori and the seascape. The apartment is located in the center of Minori, 300 meters (about 984 feet) from the beach. It is only 4 km (about 2.5 miles) away from Amalfi.
There is a double bedroom, a twin bedroom, a bathroom, a spacious living-room and a kitchen. It is equipped with air conditioning and winter heating.
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 Amena, 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 colors 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 amena, 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.

Our host was very efficient. We had a problem with the AC and this was acted on promptly. Vera was lovely and very helpful always. Minori is a great little town, very Italian. The shops have everything you need, no big supermarkets but you dont need them. Everything is also very close to the apt - and although there are the steps, even our 6 year old didnt find them a problem! There are butchers and veg shops, couple of mini markets and a lovely bakery. Nice restaurants - Pub Birilla was our girls favourite, bargain, brilliant food.
Nice good size apartment well suited for 4. Well equipped kitchen allowing cooking, or just to prepare breakfast or a lunch, in case you need to get off the beach during mid-day.
Best of all is the wonderful terrace with at small pavilion for shade, overlooking the town and the sea in the back. We enjoyed many meals there, and it was a great place to relax with a drink in the afternoon before walking down into town to one of the many restaurants.
Great apartment with probably the best view of Minori. Nothing to complain about, we just had a fabulous time over there and used the bbq on the deck almost every day to enjoy the great foods that can be bought in Minori and the beautiful view while preparing and eating them :) Minori is a lovely and relatively quiet village with all the comforts and luckily without the total tourist madness like in places as Amalfi and Positano. Thanks Alfonso and helpers for providing us with a very comfortable and relaxing stay.
We had an amazing stay in Minori at Alfonso's home. I was worried about logistics and the language barrier but everything worked out perfectly. Alfonso was always available and scheduled a coastal boat tour and an early morning ride to Naples airport. I would highly recommend staying at Alfonso's home and hope to come back some day.
Lovely apartment (with a fantastic terrace) is a nice little town of great character. Good information and welcome from Alfonso.
Minori is the quiet sister of Amalfi. I loved it. The flat is amazing! It was extremely clean, very comfortable beds, shower was great, terrace has the most amazing view! There are stairs but they aren't that bad at all! The wifi was a bit spotty but I think it was the weather. Either way, the owner replaced the modem and it worked wonderfully. The location is great. We underutilized the beautiful terrace but when we did use it, it was worth every minute looking out at the view. We were able to walk down a couple of blocks to the beach and swim, too. Everything is very close by, groceries, bars, coffee, fruit, and anything else you could ask for. Loved it.
Wonderful home, area, neighbours (including the cats and dogs)! Great hospitality!
Thanks a lot Alfonso and his son!!!!
Замечательный дом, окрестности и соседство! Каждый день на огонек приходило семейство местных котов и два лабрадора с соседней плантации лимонных деревьев. В общем было совсем не скучно! Вокруг дома лимонные деревья, в окошко заглядывает жасмин! Идиллия! Равелло прямо над головой на горе- даже слышна музыка, когда там идут концерты. Убранство дома полностью соответствует картинкам. Хозяева крайне предупредительны и заботливы. Очень рекомендуем эти апартаменты!!
