Philosophy and sea view 

Diogenes – it is to this ancient Greek and pre-Socratic philosopher that the charming maisonette apartment with its typical, Amalfi-style cupola ceiling in the heart of Conca dei Marini is dedicated to. It is only a few kilometers from here to Amalfi. 

During your stay, you will 'meet' Diogenes quite often – in the books of the well-known Italian author Luciano De Crescenzo. Paola, his daughter, and Raffaele, her husband, have not only turned once deserted Casetta di Diogene into a real gem, they have also furnished it with a lot of papa Luciano’s writings. 

So, settle back into the chair in the apartment’s gallery, enjoy the view of the deep blue in front of your window and then dive into the life and teachings of Diogenes & Co.

Thus spake Bellavista

It is truly a bella vista – a heavenly view – and lots of green which your private outdoor area a few steps below the apartment offers. The lovely and partly roofed terrace is furnished with sunbeds, a table and chairs as well as an outdoor shower. 

Completely renovated – with eleganza and style

The inside of Casetta di Diogene can be described as small, fine and quite individual in design and layout. The gallery was installed to gain more space and to separate the sleeping and living areas. 

A narrow spiral staircase takes you up to the gallery with double bed and air conditioning (warm/cold). In the gallery, Paola has arranged a small reading corner with comfortable chair, book shelf and reading lamp. We recommend you linger there for a while and be it just for the beautiful view of the sea.   

The apartment’s living area has been designed with style and with a love for many a small detail. It is furnished, amongst others, with sofa bed, wardrobe, TV, WLAN, dining furniture and kitchenette. The kitchenette’s worktop and range hood are hand-crafted and made of a modern kind of cement. They contrast with the bright, high walls and catch your eye immediately. 

The kitchenette includes refrigerator, gas stove, small oven and, of course, crockery from Vietri sul Mare. The old wooden table fits well with the apartment’s modern ambience. Beautiful and a delight to behold right in the morning when sipping your cup of coffee – the view of the sea and of Conca’s church, which is built onto a rock face. 

In the bathroom below the sleeping gallery, the recess in form of a pointed arch above WC and bidet and the striking tiles are quite remarkable. Although the bathroom of Diogene is small, there is also a masonry shower as well as a washing machine.    

Time and Happiness

…is the title of one of De Crescenzo’s books. And, this could be the motto for your holidays at Casa di Diogene. Given the terrific coastal landscape between Positano and Vietri sul Mare, you will not be short of experiencing moments of joy and of being wowed. 

It is considered a great convenience by some, a physical challenge by others – the way to the beach of Conca dei Marini, which you can walk to along idyllic stepped paths (ca. 600 steps).  

Parking: Public parking is available along the road, ca. 100 m above the holiday apartment. A long-term parking permit for public parking spaces is provided by the owners. 

A shopping facility, bars, restaurant La Bontà del Capo and trattoria-pizzeria La Piazza are within an easy walking distance of 300 m. 

Should you want to make do completely or partly without car, then we have got a tip for you: There is a scooter and bike rental in Via Roma. The vehicles can also be rented by the hour. The towns of Amalfi, Positano, Praiano, Ravello and Sorrento are easy to reach by using public means of transportation.  

Nearest train station: Sorrento (ca. 29 km)

Der Urlaub hat uns insgesamt sehr gut gefallen, an der Region besonders die wunderschöne Küste mit den Wanderwegen und der Ort Conca. Zur Casetta di Diogene seien besonders die Lage der Wohnung sowie die geschmackvolle Einrichtung erwähnt. Unser Tipp: Wandern in der Region! Atemberaubende Küste, sehr nette Menschen und tolle Betreuung vor Ort! – Wir können uns gut vorstellen wiederzukommen.

Olaf B., Apensen, September 2019

Es hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Die Lage der Wohnung, Architektur, Einrichtungsstil, Bibliothek, Garten... Ein Grill wäre schön gewesen, aber es passte auch so. In dem kleinen Ort haben wir uns rundum wohl gefühlt, die Menschen sind immer freundlich und hilfsbereit. Das Essen im Restaurant "Bontà del Capo" und eine Wanderung auf dem Götterweg können wir sehr empfehlen. Wir haben alles zu Fuß und mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln erledigt, es war sehr angenehm... mit Bus, Fähre kein Problem... Die Tickets kann man zu einem recht günstigen Preis erstehen. Wir können uns vorstellen, wieder in diese Region zu kommen. Es ist einfach wunderschön!

Angelika T., I-Salurn, Juni 2019

Es war alles zu unserer Zufriedenheit! Die Casetta di Diogene ist eine äußerst geschmackvoll und komplett eingerichtete Ferienwohnung mit einem idyllischen kleinen Garten. Die Betreuung der Wohnung durch Miriam ist spitze. Sie ist jederzeit erreichbar und gibt tolle Infos. Wir empfehlen jedoch, nicht zu viel Gepäck mitzunehmen, da man alles über die Stufen (ca. 70) bis zur Wohnung tragen muss. Alles in allem ist die Küste jedoch wirklich reizvoll, hat nette Orte und bietet eine gut regionale Küche.

Ernst & Lydia B., München, Mai/Juni 2019

Einrichtung und Lage der Wohnung haben uns besonders gut gefallen. Conca dei Marini ist ein ruhiger Ort und die Menschen hier sind sehr freundlich. Auch die Beratung durch Ihre Agentur und von Miriam vor Ort empfanden wir als sehr freundlich. Gern reisen wir noch einmal an die Amalfiküste. Warum? Es gibt einfach so viele Wander- und Besichtigungsmöglichkeiten! Unser Tipp an andere Urlauber: Es ist empfehlenswert, einen Transfer vom Flughafen zur Unterkunft im Voraus zu buchen.

Bärbel R., Berlin, April 2019

Das Beste an der Region sind für uns die traumhafte Landschaft, die angenehme Wärme und das herrliche Meer sowie die interessante Kultur. Zudem sind die Ausblicke, wie man sie z.B. auf dem Götterweg genießen kann, einfach wunderschön. Auch die Ferienwohnung hat uns begeistert – aufgrund ihrer Einrichtung, aber natürlich ebenfalls durch den tollen Ausblick auf die Landschaft und das Meer. Unser Tipp für andere Urlauber: Unbedingt die Bio-Trattoria am Mühlenweg oberhalb von Amalfi besuchen. Wir kommen wieder!
