Casa Vettica is part of a small hamlet of old houses recently converted into delightful holiday apartments. Set amongst verdant green hills, with wide views over the sea and the surrounding countryside of vineyards and lemon groves, the home is a very peaceful and inhabits a quiet position. The area is delightful, with many small hamlets, churches and other places of historic interest to discover. The building is situated on the edge of the pretty hamlet of Vettica, just a little over three kilometer from Amalfi, which can easily be reached in 10 minutes using the public transport system.
The house has been carefully restored throughout and offers the guest a spacious and stylish accommodation, harmoniously blending the new design within the context of an old house that retains the original, high-vaulted ceilings and spacious rooms. The rooms have original Majolica tile flooring and are comfortably furnished with a good combination of antique furniture and modern pieces. Bathrooms are spacious, modern and newly fitted.
Casa Vettica is situated above another rental property, however, it is completely independent with its own entrance and spacious terraces. There are 35 stone steps from the street level to the apartment.
A car is not necessary here as public transport is very good. There is a bus stop with a regular service to Amalfi just 50 meters from the property, which makeS it easy and cheap to travel around the area. However, if you do have a car, you can park it in a private lot close to the stairs to the house, at a cost of 15 euro/day (reservation required at time of booking).
Casa Vettica is approx. 70 sq. meters. The entrance leads into an open-plan living/sitting room with hand-made Majolica tiles. The ceiling is high and vaulted, the furnishings are elegant and refined and include a sofa and two armchairs, a dining table, a flat-screen Satellite TV, and an air conditioning/heating unit.

On one side of the living room three steps lead to the nicely equipped kitchen (four-burner gas cooker, electric oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, Italian-style coffee maker-maker, and an American-style coffee maker). From the kitchen are two spacious bedrooms, each with en-suite bathrooms. (Please note, the first bedroom is a pass-through room: members of your party might need to walk through this bedroom to reach the second bedroom. However, both bedrooms are also directly connected to the terrace by a glass door, and guests can avoid going through the first bedroom by entering the second bedroom from the terrace.)
