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)

Die Amalfiküste hat uns vor allem durch ihre tolle Landschaft und das tolle Essen (Gemüse, Fisch, Mozzarella) sehr begeistert. Außerdem gibt es viele interessante Sehenswürdigkeiten in der Region. Das Wetter war traumhaft! An unserer Unterkunft haben wir vor allem den kleinen Garten genossen. In der Wohnung selbst haben wir uns außer zum Kochen und Schlafen quasi nicht aufgehalten. In der Wohnung das Beste: der tolle Ausblick! Uns persönlich hat der Dorfstrand deutlich besser gefallen als der Beach Club. Neben dem Bonta fanden wir auch die Pizzerien auf der Piazza Olme sehr nett. Insgesamt hat uns auch das dörfliche Umfeld sehr gut gefallen, alles Leute waren super nett und man grüßte sich freundlich. Ich denke, Sie hatten alles perfekt vorbereitet. Wir haben alles gefunden und alles war wie beschrieben. Im Rahmen einer umfassenderen Reise kommen wir ganz sicher noch einmal für einige Tage hierher.

Die Region ist einfach ein Traum - die Vielfalt der Landschaft, das Essen, die Wanderwege mit den Aussichten und die kulturelle Vergangenheit… Die Anfahrtsbeschreibung war top. Auch in unserer Ferienwohnung mit der geschmackvollen, dezenten Innengestaltung war alles perfekt. Wunderschön ist natürlich der Blick aus dem Fenster! Und die Ruhe. Es war ein Ankommen und sich Wohlfühlen. Außerdem hatten wir Glück, in unserem Urlaub etwas ganz Besonderes erleben zu dürfen: Von der Küste aus haben wir Delfine gesehen. Wir möchten auf jeden Fall wiederkommen, weil es noch viel zu sehen gibt!

Unser Aufenthalt in Conca dei Marini war toll! Es hat einfach alles super geklappt. Besonders gut gefallen haben uns die Landschaft, die Orte und die netten Leute. Die Unterkunft hat eine wunderschöne Atmosphäre und ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Der Ausblick ist ein Traum! Das Auto haben wir vor Ort gar nicht gebraucht, da wir entweder zu Fuß gegangen oder mit dem Bus gefahren sind. Alles in allem: Empfehlenswert! Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder!
