Il Nido di Cupido (in English: Cupid’s Nest) lies embedded like a nest in the lush green landscape of Monte Falerio, home mountain of the picturesque mountain village of Albori. The name of the holiday home which is dedicated to Cupid, the God of Love in Roman mythology, seems very suitable.
For the restoration of the house, the owners, natives of Albori, have used only natural material such as natural stone and wood, which harmonize perfectly with the untouched environs. Inside the house, floors of Vietri tiles so typical for the Amalfi coast and antique terracotta provide for a Southern Italian atmosphere you feel at ease in.
Thus, a romantic shelter has been created where you can spend relaxed days at the Amalfi coast; nevertheless, it is only a few minutes by car from the world famous towns of Amalfi, Ravello and Positano.
With its intact, medieval town center and its appealing location between sea and mountains, Albori is indeed worth a journey. It is not without reason that Albori is called "uno dei borghi più belli d'Italia", one of Italy’s most beautiful villages.
You enter the house via the partly roofed front terrace. The 50 m² of Il Nido di Cupido include, amongst others, an air-conditioned living room with fireside and sofa bed for the third person.
The fully equipped fitted kitchen with high-quality stone worktop includes 4-burner gas stove, oven and refrigerator with freezer compartment. There is also access of an extra room with washing machine.
The tastefully furnished and air-conditioned double bedroom offers a double bed and a wardrobe.
From the bedroom, you access the bathroom with shower cabin, hair dryer, WC/bidet as well as the rear terrace.
The outdoor area includes a small lawn and two partly roofed terraces with garden furniture, barbecue and outdoor shower. It is a wonderful place to simply relax in the midst of lush green.
The roof terrace might be just the right place to enjoy mild summer evenings while savoring a glass of wine and to give in to the charming atmosphere at sunset.

Your holiday home is furnished with fireside, washing machine, TV, radio, CD player, outdoor shower and barbecue.

From Il Nido di Cupido it is only about 3 km to the nearest sandy beach which you can also walk to along a stepped path. For your return trip, we recommend the well organized public means of transport. Please note that the last bus to Albori runs at ca. 8 pm.
Ideal for those who love hiking: start directly from your house towards the „Cesare“-spring, which has its source in Monte Falerio and is part of the oasis „Parco Croce“.
The daughter of the well-known philosopher Benedetto Croce committed the oasis to the organization WWF to guarantee the protection of the area. Part of the park consists of Mediterranean forest, another of the Amalfi coast’s typical terraces.
Don’t miss out on a visit to the village of Vietri sul Mare only 4 km off and famous for its ceramics factories. Stroll through the alleys and marvel at the colorful, hand-painted tiles which adorn almost every house at the Amalfitana.
It is about 22 km to Amalfi, which is rich in history, which once was a great maritime power and which is the eponym of the coast. A must-see for those who love culture and history: the majestic cathedral of Amalfi!
