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 tasteful apartment with beautiful sea view terrace in Albori belongs to a well-known Italian family of intellectuals.

“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, of course, we wanted to hear those stories.

The house dates from the 17th century. It is found amidst the car-free terraced alleys in the “centro storico” of Albori, which counts among Italy’s most beautiful villages. Better than words could, the typical cupola ceilings, up to 3.50 m in height, original flooring and antique furniture as well as quite a number of books tell you about the history of the house.

Mediterranean holidays

At Casa Vecchia you do not only dive into a fascinating past. You can spend real “vacanze mediterranee” and enjoy outdoor life to the full there. 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. Seated around the beautiful mosaic table, you can spend a pleasant time dining together. On the deck chairs in the rear part of the sea view terrace you can relax and take a sunbath or enjoy your holiday read.

Your accommodation is located on the first floor of the building, whose hillside location, however, provides level access to the apartment.

Tasteful furnishing and large sea view terrace

The tasteful entry area lets you right into the living room of the apartment. Its beautiful flooring dates from the 17th century, the woodstove and fine furnishing make for an elegant and at the same time cozy atmosphere in this room. The French balcony facing the piazzetta and the door opening onto the terrace add an air of brightness and friendliness.

Casa Vecchia has two 'normal' bedrooms. In the reading-and-lounge room between the two bedrooms a sofa bed provides sleeping accommodation for a 5th person. Each of these three rooms offers a view of the sea and direct access of the terrace.
One of the bedrooms is furnished with a double bed. The set of book shelves, old family photos and the writing table add to the special charm of the room. The second bedroom has twin beds, which can be rearranged to form a double, and includes a small en suite bathroom with shower and WC.

The second bathroom of Casa Vecchia, which features masonry shower cabin, WC, bidet and washing machine, is accessible from the hallway.

The eat-in kitchen of your Amalfi Coast accommodation 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 offers everything you need to prepare your holiday meals and includes, amongst others, gas stove, oven, refrigerator with freezer compartment and water boiler. 

At Casa Vecchia WiFi access is available for a fee of 10 EUR per week.

Parking and further information about Albori

You cannot drive your car all the way up to Casa Vecchia. Public parking spaces are found outside the village center (along the road or in the small piazza, which the access road to Albori leads to and where it ends).

A reserved and lockable parking space near that piazza is available for a fee of 10 EUR/day.

If you spend your holidays at Albori, you spend them at one of Italy’s most beautiful villages. In the Campania region, only 11 villages belong to the 'club' of the "Borghi più belli d'Italia". At contemplative Albori, you have got the chance to get to know the original, rural face of the Amalfi Coast.

Those who love hiking can start on tours into the mountains and along the coast right from Casa Vecchia. Amid local everyday life, the observant traveler, by and by, gains some insight into the soul of “Bella Italia”.

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 neighbor’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, as a matter of course, picked up from school by their “nonno”, their grandfather.

Bars, restaurants and the sea

Café-bars, a bruschetteria and the recommendable restaurant of the local Agriturismo are about 100 m from the apartment. Grocery stores are found in the neighboring town of Raito, ca. 800 m off.

It is only about three kilometers to the nearest sandy beach, which you can also walk to along a stepped 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.

Die Casa Vecchia ist ein schönes altes Haus in wunderschöner Lage und einem Balkon über dem Meer. Der Blick auf das Meer ist einzigartig, die Menschen freundlich und die Landschaft wunderschön. An einem Tag sind wir bis in den Cilento gefahren und haben uns Paestum angeschaut. Seht imponierend und auf jeden Fall empfehlenswert! Hier gibt es noch so viel zu sehen, gern kommen wir wieder in diese Region.

Ein Italien-Urlaub wie man ihn sich wünscht! Albori ist ein ganz bezauberndes Städtchen, in dem wir sofort herzlich aufgenommen wurden. Obwohl man von hier aus die gesamte Amalfiküste erkunden kann, ist der Ort selbst noch nicht vom Massentourismus überrannt. Die Nähe zum Cilento, einer ebenfalls traumhaften Region, macht die Lage der Casa Vecchia perfekt. Besonders empfehlen können wir die tollen Wandermöglichkeiten. Direkt beim Haus führt ein kleiner Weg über die Kirche zu malerischen Spaziergängen; über Dragonaer kann man nach Badia wandern, wo sich ebenfalls herrliche Ausblicke bieten. Eine kulinarische Entdeckung ist die Pizzeria "Garden" gleich im Ort. Dort wird man vorzüglich bekocht und das zu absolut fairen Preisen. In Albori waren wir sicher nicht zum letzten Mal!

Unser Urlaub an der Amalfiküste war genauso, wie man ihn sich vorstellt: Die Casa Vecchia ist ein kleines Juwel, was Lage, Ausstattung und Einrichtung betrifft. Die Größe und Aufteilung der Zimmer ist perfekt und die Aussicht einfach herrlich. Wir waren absolut hingerissen von der herzlichen Freundlichkeit der Dorfbewohner und des Hausverwalters. Besonders angetan haben es uns die warmherzige Kirchengemeinde mit ihrem charmanten Pfarrer Don Ciro. In dieser landschaftlich wie kulturell faszinierenden Gegend waren wir sicher nicht zum letzten Mal! Ein praktischer Tipp: Der Flughafenbus bringt Besucher von Neapel nach Salerno für den unschlagbaren Preis von nur 4 Euro.

Wunderbare Casa Vecchia - gute Lage mitten im Ort, schöne Einrichtung, gute Ausstattung, Ruhe, Meerblick - alles bestens! Wunderschönes Albori, tolle Natur, gute Verkehrsanbindung. Die Menschen hier sind herrlich gastfreundlich, offen und hilfsbereit. Unter diesen Menschen zu leben hat unseren Urlaub unheimlich bereichert. Toll war es, die EM auf dem Kirchenplatz mit den Dorfbewohnern zu schauen, es gab von den Frauen gekochtes Essen in der Pause und viel Spaß. Tipp: die Küste mit dem Boot erkunden! In Albori lebt außerdem eine junge Frau, die deutsch, englisch ind italienisch spricht. Sie ist sehr hilfsbereit und kann gut übersetzen, wenn es notwendig ist. Sie ist oft mit ihrem kleinen Sohn Mario auf dem Kirchplatz und ist in Albori als "die Holländerin" bekannt. Wir kommen wieder, Landschaft, Menschen, Klima und Essen bilden eine ideale Komposition!

Anna u. Ian Charles C., Baden-Baden, Juni 2012

Die Casa Vecchia ist charmant, authentisch und befindet sich in idealer Lage. Vor allem die Mischung aus Natur und geschichtsträchtiger Kultur bzw. Architektur sowie die Offenheit und Freundlichkeit der Dorfbewohner hat mich beeindruckt.
