Casa Vecchia - Holiday apartment in Albori

A house that has stories to tell ...

Casa Vecchia, the „old house“, bears its name with reason and with dignity. The apartment in Albori belongs to a well-known family of intellectuals and was, up to recently, used only privately.

“Se voi sapeste quante storie potrebbe raccontare questa casa” – “If you knew how many stories this house could tell”: It was with these words that the friendly caretaker of Casa Vecchia welcomed us. And we surely wanted to hear those stories.

The house dates from the 17th century. It is located amidst the car-free terraced alleys of Albori’s “centro storico” (Amalfi coast, Southern Italy). 

Typical cupola ceilings, up to 3.50 m in height, original flooring, numerous pieces of antique furniture and a great number of books tell a better story of the house’s history than words ever can.

At Casa Vecchia you do not only dive into a fascinating past. Here, you can pass real “vacanze mediterranee” and enjoy outdoor life to the full.

The terrace running the length of the house is greened with rich potted plants, the deep blue sea lies at your feet.  

Part of the terrace is roofed.

A beautiful mosaic table and seating accommodation promise a pleasant time dining together.

Deck chairs in the rear part of the sea view terrace invite you to take a sunbath or to delve into your holiday reading.

The apartment is located on the first floor.

The hillside location, however, provides level access to Casa Vecchia.

The tasteful entry area lets you into the living-cum-dining room. Its 17th century flooring, woodstove and fine furnishing make for an elegant and at the same time cosy atmosphere. The French balcony facing the piazzetta and the door opening onto the terrace make for a bright and friendly room.

Casa Vecchia has three bedrooms, two of which can be used as a reading and an additional living room. These three rooms provide a view of the sea and access of the terrace.

The double bedroom achieves its effect not least due to its set of book shelves and the writing table.

A very convenient aspect during your stay at Casa Vecchia is the Wifi access that is provided for a fee of 10 EUR per week.

Sleeping accommodation for a possible fifth person is provided with the sofa bed in the reading room.

The bathroom is equipped with a bathtub (with shower partition), bidet, WC and a washing machine.

The living room with its two sofa beds and beautiful writing table offers an en suite bathroom with washbasin and WC.

The eat-in kitchen with its high cupola ceiling, its original 18th century tiles, its showcase and its French balcony facing the piazza may be small, but it is charming. Of course, it provides all the equipment you need to prepare your holiday meals.

Get to know the original, rural face of the Amalfi coast during your stay at Albori.

In the terraced alleys of the picturesque “centro storico” time moves at a slower pace.

The inhabitants know and greet each other, they walk through the alleys and archways without hurry. Clotheslines are tied between your own window and your neighbour’s across the alley, fragrant basil is grown in pots in front of the doors, small statues of the Virgin Mary are lovingly decorated and children are quite naturally picked up from school by their “nonno”, their grandfather.

Here, amid local everyday life, the observant traveller will, by and by, gain some insight into the soul of “Bella Italia”.

Within less than 100 m you reach café bars, a pub and the restaurant "Agriturismo". In the neighbouring town of Raito, about 800 m off, is to be found  a grocery store. Casa Vecchia is located only about 3 km from the nearest sandy beach, which you reach on foot by means of a stairway path. For the way back we recommend using the well-organized means of public transportation. Please note that the last bus to Albori runs at ca. 8 pm.

Because Casa Vecchia is situated in the stairway alleays of Albori, you cannot drive all the way to your holiday apartment. Parking spots are found along the road around the historic village centre.

Die Region an der Amalfiküste besticht vor allem durch schöne Landschaften und interessante Sehenswürdigkeiten. Unsere Wohnung war gut bis sehr gut ausgestattet und hatte eine schöne Terrasse mit wunderschönem Ausblick. Besondere Erlebnisse hatten wir viele, z.B. die Fahrt in das Hinterland von Salerno, Richtung Nusco. Die Landschaft dort ist sehr schön, es herrscht wenig Verkehr und es gibt viele kleine, nette Orte. In Ravello haben wir die Villa Cimbrone besichtigt - eine sehr schöne Anlage mit einem tollen Ausblick. Pompeji und Herculaneum sind definitiv ein Muss. Und der Vesuv ist sehr beeindruckend. Marina di Praia hinter Praiano ist eine schöne kleine Badebucht mit Restaurants, ideal für einen Pausenstop. Alles, was uns interessierte, haben wir gesehen. Die Unterkunft entsprach den schönen Beschreibungen und ansprechenden Fotos der Angebotsseite. Wir wurden nett empfangen und haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt. Vielen Dank an Cilentano für die Organisation und den reibungslosen Ablauf. Wir hatten einen schönen und sehr interessanten Urlaub an der Amalfiküste.

Natur und Kultur sind hier noch im Einklang. Das Ambiente der Casa Vecchia und die wunderschöne Aussicht haben uns wirklich gut gefallen. Ein Erlebnis war der Sonntagsgottesdienst in der Chiesa. Ich war schon vor 50 Jahren einmal in der Gegend und würde auch heute noch jederzeit wiederkommen.

Albori ist wunderschön. Salerno auch, wobei das fast noch ein Geheimtipp ist. Die langen Strände im Golf von Salerno sind toll. Wir haben aber auch viel Schönes gesehen in den Bergen und in kleinen, versteckten Dörfern. An Casa Vecchia hat uns am besten die Terrasse gefallen. Der Ausblick ist toll und alle Zimmer hatten einen direkten Zugang. Die Wohnung ist großzügig geschnitten und hat viel italienisches Flair. Einen Aperitivo auf der Piazza von Vietri sul Mare sollte man sich unbedingt einmal genehmigen. Weil wir uns in Albori so wohl gefühlt und uns selten so gut erholt haben, kommen wir bestimmt wieder!

Wir hatten einen wunderschönen Urlaub. Ich weiß gar nicht, wo ich anfangen soll... die Landschaft und die örtliche Flora sind herrlich. Die Gemüseauswahl in der Region ist ebenso fantastisch wie die kunstvollen dolci. Die Wohnung war prima ausgestattet und der Meerblick von der Terrasse ist unvergesslich. Wir schwelgen jetzt noch in Erinnerungen an Alpenveilchen, Glyzinien, Orchideen, Zitronen, Kletterröschen und vieles mehr. Unbedingt besuchen sollte man den Giardino di Minerva in Salerno. Dafür am besten den öffentlichen Aufzug benutzen. Dass wir wiederkommen, steht für uns außer Frage!

Die Amalfiküste ist fantastisch, besonders Salerno. Wir hatten mit Casa Vecchia eine ganz tolle Unterkunft - genau wie beschrieben und erfreulich großzügig geschnitten. Die Lage ist herrlich ruhig und wir hatten Gelegenheit Land und Leute tatsächlich kennenzulernen. Wir würden das gerne wiederholen.
