The small comune of Furore is famous, above all, for its impressive fjord which, between Praiano and Conca dei Marini, cuts deeply into the steep coast. With its small sandy beach and the colorful small fishermen’s houses, which seems to cling to the steep cliffs, visitors to this place are met by a unique atmosphere, which had already fascinated famous Roberto Rossellini for his film „Amore“.
The comune of Furore lies above the „Fiordo“, apart from the frequently quoted hustle and bustle of the coastal towns. That is where, in marvelous panoramic location, family Castellano’s small Bed & Breakfast L’Incanto is found. As the renovated accommodation houses only 4 guest rooms, you enjoy holidays there in an affectionate and family atmosphere.
Exclusively for you, we have chosen the room which goes by the beautiful name of Capri and is located at the upper end of the terraced premises. From both of the private, furnished terraces you see the so-called Faraglioni di Capri in the distance, rock formations rising steeply from the sea off the island.
The room has its private access and is reached only via a stepped path. It is spaciously designed and, due to the large windows facing the smaller terrace, it is bright and friendly. Furnishing includes a double bed, two wardrobes, a dresser, a chair, a small refrigerator, TV and air conditioning.
The bathroom is equipped with shower cabin, hair dryer, WC and bidet.
The three Castellano brothers Giuseppe, Nicola and Carmine also run restaurant L’Incanto, which is located below the B&B. Enjoy your breakfast on the restaurant’s sea view terrace or, if you prefer, have it served in your room (surcharge), savoring a cup of creamy cappuccino on one of your terraces and starting into the day at your own pace.
Breakfast is prepared by chef de cuisine Giuseppe. You are offered, above all and typically Italian, home-made cakes, brioches and croissants, furthermore fruit, yoghurt, jam and sweet spread. Cheese, sausages and eggs are prepared upon request (surcharge € 5).
You have got the option to add half board to your booking at B&B L'Incanto. Just like breakfast, dinner, which includes house wine, is served at the restaurant.
Parking is available at the restaurant or along the road near the B&B.
Besides restaurant L’Incanto, which offers very good fish dishes and has a pizza oven, too, there are other restaurants about 650 m off. Grocery stores and bars are ca. 1.2 km off.
Not far from the B&B, in Frazione Bomerano (comune of Agerola), you can start on hiking tours along the most famous and popular hiking trail at the Amalfi Coast – Sentiero degli Dei (in English: Path of Gods). 'Accompanied' by an extraordinary coastal panorama, you might just walk as far as Positano and then take the bus back to Furore.
Should you want to 'take a day off' from culture and nature and slip in a day at the beach, then you might do so at the nearest beach at Conca dei Marini (Capo di Conca, ca. 9 km). However, excursions to the smaller beaches at Fiordo di Furore (ca. 12 km) and at Praiano (Marina di Praia, ca. 14 km) are also worthwhile.
By the way, the bridge spanning the fjord at a height of 30 m is the location where, every summer, an important World High Diving Championship takes place. The participants’ audacious dives into the azure depths of the sea deserve to be seen, be it from the coastal road or from the beach below.
Nearest train stations: Castellamare di Stabia (ca. 20 km) and Sorrento (ca. 40 km)
Nearest harbors: Amalfi (ca. 13 km) and Positano (ca. 25 km)
