"Heaven on the Upper Amalfi Coast!” - Reviewed by Lisa

WIXXY PICK

Lisa Pick – “Luxury living hand in hand with history – a 400-year-old home functioning perfectly in a pristine location. My morning coffee was served from a sterling silver coffee pot into a locally-made Vietri ceramic demi-tasse – these are the details I love!”

What makes this stunning hilltop home so utterly enticing? Could it be the fresh aroma of juicy lemons and oranges growing in pots on the patio? Or is it the wonderful wisteria climbing happily over pergolas, the banks of flowering geraniums and a market garden full of fruits and vegetables just waiting to be eaten? Maybe it’s the views – they are positively stunning! Perhaps it’s the impeccably-restored old fortress complete with narrow slits for the archers’ darts in a historic time long forgotten?

So many wonderful aspects that come together under the blissful Amalfi sun and make the complete whole.

Ten years ago, a professional couple from Naples turned their attention to an area of the upper Amalfi Coast region somewhat off the tourist track – an area that is intrinsically more authentic than its lower coastal neighbours of Positano, Amalfi and even Ravello. They lavished love and plenty of Euros on their 400-year-old new baby and thought through details that are infrequently found in many private rental homes.

The fruits of their passion are deeply appreciated by any visitor lucky enough to find their home and by the faithful staff who serve so diligently and, I have to say, have one of the world’s more pleasant kitchens to call their workplace!

Furore runs from the top of a mountain to the Mediterranean Coast along a twisty, curvy road. The community, located 98 steps down from the villa, boasts excellent frescoes, sculptures and installations in the most surprising places.

In the village, you’ll find a few restaurants, an ATM, the Post Office, Town Hall, greengrocers and beautiful artwork.

There are approximately 425 steps from Dimora Celeste down to the beach. And, if you can’t face the climb back up, there is a private driver to bring you home!
