Only ca. 600 m lie between Casa Celeste and Grotta dello Smeraldo, one of the landmarks of Capo di Conca and of the Amalfitan coast in general. The sea grotto with its fascinating light reflections of shimmering emerald green is the mainland counterpart of Capri’s Blue Grotto.
Somewhat apart from the cave, which you can reach from the coastal road by way of elevator, you find a handful of beach and bathing bays. From the holiday apartment you can walk along stepped paths to the sea. Marina di Conca (ca. 1.5 km off) is particularly charming. The fishing village counts among Italy‘s most beautiful places and to this day its appeal to the country’s rich and beautiful is as strong as ever.
Above all this lies holiday apartment Casa Celeste, a perfect refuge for two to at most 4 persons.
Casa Celeste includes a kitchen, a double bedroom, a combined living-bedroom with a sofa bed for two persons and a bathroom. The apartment is the ideal accommodation especially for couples.
The kitchen features gas stove, oven, water boiler, toaster and refrigerator with freezer compartment and is furnished with a dining table and 4 chairs as well as a TV. Free WLAN is available in the whole apartment.
The bathroom of Casa Celeste is equipped with shower cabin, hair dryer, bidet and washing machine. The apartment is also furnished with air conditioning and fly screens.
The apartment’s two furnished balconies offer an uninhibited view of the sea and are large enough to enjoy your breakfast or your evening meal at sunset out in the open. The balconies are accessible from the double bedroom and the room with the sofa bed.
Apart from Casa Celeste, two other holiday apartments are located on the premises. All the guests have got their respective private outdoor areas, but there is also a terrace with sunbeds for shared use. On the latter, which of course offers a view of the sea, a lemon grove provides for pleasant shade on hot summer days. An outdoor shower is also nearby.
Those arriving by car find a private parking space available below the holiday apartment. Larger vehicles may have to be parked along the road (for a fee).
The apartment is accessible via a short stepped path of ca. 60 steps. Conca dei Marini can also be reached by using the public means of transportation or by way of private transfer, which we could organize for you.
Due to its convenient location – only a few kilometers from Amalfi – Conca dei Marini is a good starting point to go on a discovery tour of the various faces of the Amalfi Coast. If you want to visit the tourist draws such as Ravello, Positano, Sorrento and Amalfi you are well advised to go by bus. From Amalfi, boats depart for the Isle of Capri several times per day.
Somewhat off the coastal towns, go can go on wonderful hiking tours along old mule trails and stepped paths and enjoy a truly unique panorama of the sea. The Trail of Gods between Bomerano and Positano, where in summer even concerts (classical music and folklore) take place, is very popular and much frequented. An excursion into the Valle dei Mulini is also worthwhile. The route runs from Amalfi to Pontone, a beautiful village rich in panorama, where you can stop for lunch in the picturesque piazza.
At Conca dei Marini, we recommend restaurant La Bontà del Capo, which is not far from Casa Celeste (a ca. 500 m walk). It offers a marvelous view of the Cape of Conca and is, in general, open for lunch and dinner every day. Fiorenzo Oliveto, chef and owner of the restaurant, also offers his Lemon Tour, which is popular with guests from all over the world.
Next to Bontà del Capo, there is a small grocery store. Somewhat further on in the piazza of Conca, you come across a bar and a pizzeria, at which you should stop by on your stroll through town.
Nearest train station: Sorrento (ca. 29 km)
