La Casetta di Diogene - Holiday apartment at Conca dei Marini

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)

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!

Bernt M., Hamburg, September 2018

Die Amalfiküste hat uns als Wanderregion sehr gut gefallen. Zudem hat man von Conca dei Marini aus vielfältigste Möglichkeiten für besondere Unternehmungen und Besichtigungen, wie z.B. Pompeji und der Vesuv, Capri sowie die Küstenstädtchen. Die Ferienwohnung war äußerst geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Außerdem sind wir vor Ort hervorragend betreut worden!!! Die Hinweise unserer Ansprechpartnerin waren wirklich „Gold wert“ und sie versorgte uns auch mit Fahrplänen. Wir wollen die Küste auf jeden Fall wandernd weiter erkunden. Bis bald!

Christoph H., Köln, Juli / August 2018

Wir haben in Conca dei Marini vor allem die Sonne, das Essen und Trinken sowie das Meer bei einzigartiger Kulisse abseits der Touristenzentren sehr genossen. Auch in der Ferienwohnung war alles ausgezeichnet. Besonders die Größe und Lage der Unterkunft sowie deren Ausstattung und die vielen liebevollen Details haben uns begeistert. Nicht zu vergessen der grandiose Ausblick!!! Unser Geheim-Tipp: Der Lido Capo di Conca - traumhaft schön! Für uns ist Conca dei Marini einer der schönsten Flecken in Europa! Wir kommen ganz bestimmt wieder!

Korbinian M., München, Juni / Juli 2018

Der Aufenthalt an der Amalfiküste und in der Casetta di Diogene hat uns sehr gut gefallen! Die Casetta ist sehr umfangreich ausgestattet und liebevoll dekoriert. Die Betreuung durch Miriam und Antonio war sehr persönlich.

Carina T., Ahrensburg, Juni 2018

Wir haben einen wunderschönen Urlaub in Conca dei Marini verbracht. Besonders die dortige Landschaft und die ruhige Infrastruktur haben uns sehr gefallen. Überhaupt entsprach alles unseren Vorstellungen, wir haben keinerlei Beanstandungen. Die Unterkunft hat uns mit ihrer Lage, der tollen Aussicht und der Ruhe überzeugt. Unsere Tipps für andere Urlauber: Vor Ort die öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln nutzen und als Mietwagen ein eher kleineres Fahrzeug wählen. Zusammenfassend lässt sich sagen, dass Italien sich an der Amalfiküste von seiner schönsten Seite zeigt und die Menschen dort sehr freundlich sind. Deshalb kommen wir auf jeden Fall gerne wieder!
