Holiday Homes and Apartments in one of Italy's most beautiful villages

Unknown to most travellers, the small mountain village of Albori lies at the eastern border of the Amalfi coast. Unlike the hustle and bustle at the neighbouring town of Vietri Sul Mare, which is known for its ceramic, Albori displays tranquillity and authentic village life. This village located at an altitude of three hundred metres is called „uno dei borghi più belli d’Italia“ – one of the most beautiful villages in Italy – and rightly so.
The lively coloured houses, the small winding terraced alleys, an idyllic village piazza and, last but not least, the fantastic views of the sea and the Amalfi coast are simply captivating. The comtemplative small mountain village is ideal for all those who want to experience the peaceful side of the Costiera Amalfitana.

Albori’s location is unique: built on the slopes of Monte Falerzio with a magnificent panorama, the mountain village connects sea and mountains in a special way. The nearest sandy beach is only about three kilometres off and is easy to reach by way of a stepped path. The heart of the village beats at its idyllic piazza with the church of Santa Margherita, in which you can admire valuable frescoes of Neapolitan schooling.

Origins

The origins of Albori, which was mentioned for the first time at the beginning of the ninth century, seem to be found at the seaside. The later inhabitants of the place left the seaside for the mountains, seeking refuge from Saracen attacks on Monte Falerzio, where they founded the mountain village.

Up to the present day, Albori has preserved its original Mediterranean architecture – the colourful houses once serving as a welcome sign visible from afar for the sailors returning home after a long time at sea.

Culinary delights

Typically local dishes include „Penne alla cuppitiello“, with a sauce made of seasonal vegetables, and „palle di ciuccio“, sweet-and-sour potato croquettes. Restaurant „Garden“, at the entrance to Albori, offers a wonderful panorama and culinary delicacies.

Tip

Take it easy and start on excursions to Amalfi and to Positano from Salerno’s tourist harbor (Masuccio Salernitano). You can admire the impressive formations of the steep coast from the water and you don’t have to deal with the traffic on the coastal road, which tends to be rather heavy, above all during the summer months.
