The BEST hide-away in Amalfi Coast, the sunny South of Italy!
"Terrazza Amalfi" is one of the three (3) private rooms available for bookings at Dint' a Torre Bed & Breakfast in Amalfi Coast, the sunny South of Italy. Terrazza Amalfi is a double room featuring en-suite bathroom and panoramic balcony. The room rate includes homemade breakfast and tax.
"Dint' a Torre" Bed & Breakfast (which in the local dialect means "in the tower") is located in a 3-story house built in the 20th century, recently restored, to offer its distinguished guests a relaxing atmosphere in the heart of medieval Pontone - the "Village Museum" between Amalfi and Ravello. Located on the hillside and surrounded by lemon trees and vineyards, Dint' a Torre is just a stone's throw from the sea. A unique site offering tranquility and a breathtaking, panoramic view of the blue sky, the green hills and the shimmering sea of the Amalfi Coast in Southern Italy.
If you enjoy walking through nature, head downhill as Amalfi is just a few hundred steps away! Same route, this time uphill, to Ravello, the "City of Music", to visit its historic villas and monuments. It takes about half an hour by car or by boat to reach beautiful Positano where you will enjoy getting lost in its winding avenues while visiting the great shops, antique stores and art galleries.
As our goal is to make your stay an unforgettable experience, you will certainly enjoy the goodness and freshness of our homemade breakfast delicacies including our signature yogurt cake with lemon or orange jams...
Looking forward to welcoming you as our guests!
See you soon...

Overlooking Amalfi, Pontone is a picturesque hillside village roughly 200 meters above sea level. Currently a district of Scala, Pontone was part of the Municipality of Amalfi until the early 20th century during which time it was a popular destination for the clergy and noble class of the Amalfitan Duchy who were in search of the casual and relaxed atmosphere the village had to offer...
Today Pontone is still a quiet and rural village that enchants every visitor with the renowned warmth and hospitality of its villagers, its aristocratic houses, bell towers and three churches of great historical and artistic value. Pontone's daily life is based around its main square or "piazza" featuring the medieval church of St. John the Baptist, which dates back to the 12th century. Around the same square, you will find two restaurants/pizzeria offering superb local cuisine and a coffee bar where you can sit right under the trees in the square enjoying a good "espresso" or a cold beer.
Pontone is also an excellent starting point for excursions to the other centers along the Amalfi Coast and, especially for nature and mountain trail lovers, to the "Valle delle Ferriere" or towards the famous "Torre dello Ziro".

We had an amazing week at Dint' A Torre! I would definitely recommend you stay there. Angela and Antonio were so welcoming, we felt like an adopted part of the family. Maria speaks English and was extremely helpful, giving us ideas for different activities. Everyone was so sweet and accommodating. It is definitely a walk to the beach, but it takes about 30 minutes and the view is well worth it. Every day, there's Italian breakfasts and there was homemade wine waiting for us when we arrived. I can't put into words how relaxing and fun our week was and how strongly I recommend you stay there. Definitely off the beaten path, it's a great way to escape the tourists and see the Amalfi coast on your own terms. Also, if you're going to rent a car, get the smallest one you can find and drive during the day. We did the opposite and it was quite an adventure.
We had a wonderful week at the Dint´ a torre. Angela, Maria and Antonio have been the most lovely and thoughtful hosts one could hope for. We had no difficulties finding the place and were welcomed with a refreshing lemonade and homemade cookies. The place was always perfectly clean and tidy and the Palumbo family was always at hand showing us around town, giving suggestions on what to do and helding with pretty much everything. Breakfast was fantastic with homemade baked goods and marmelade and fresh italian coffee, all served on the terrace overlooking the beatiful valley down to Amalfi. The village itself is romantic and somewhat authentic, the perfect spot if your looking for some peace and quiet and stunning views over the landscape in all directions. The way up from Amalfi is a serious climb, but manageable. A car helps in getting around and luckily there is on site parking in the BnB´s garage. We highly recommend this place and would love to come back.
By far the best, cleanest and amazing view in our 10 city Whirlwind of a trip. Angela makes the best jams which she served every morning from the balcony that over looks the towns lemon Grove. I have already recommended two of my other friends to stay here. We stayed two nights after only planning on staying one. The owners worked in hotels prior to opening the Bnb so it really feels like a 5star hotel. Don't miss out!
The B&B was amazing. Very clean, spectacular view and Angela was very sweet. I'm happy my husband is Italian because Angela only spoke Italian and that was my only way of communicating. Angela was so lovely though and took care of us. Fresh lemonade, biscottinis and the breakfast was good.
Where the B&B is located, you only have 2 options of getting down to Amalfi...a bus or walk. We walked up and down to a phenomenal view but my legs are still hurting from that hike!
There is a nice restaurant close by with good food!
Overall a really great experience.
I was pleasantly surprised to find this B&B. Domenico made arrangements at the last minute and offered to have his dad pick us up in Amalfi. We decided to walk up to the B&B. On arrival, we were immediately greeted by Angela and Antonio who offered us a refreshment and showed us around town. Over the next few days, we were treated to delicious breakfasts that included homemade baked goods every morning. The location is accessible by stairs, bus, or taxi. We're pretty fit people and it was about 15-20 minutes from Amalfi by stairs. The location is great for a break off the main tourist areas when Amalfi and Ravello can be overrun with tourists. There are two good quality and reasonably priced restaurants within a few minutes by foot. I would highly recommend these friendly hosts. We had such a great time. I would also recommend going during the city festival (June 24) during which there were fireworks and a symphony/opera in the main piazza.
The accommodation was excellent and Angela and Antonio couldn't have been more obliging. They arranged transport for us from Salerno which was definitely worth it.
There is a lovely restaurant in Pontone a couple of minutes from the house.
It is about a half hours walk down the steps to Amalfi or 15 mins to the bus stop for the bus from Revello to Amalfi.
