Review 341: Summer in Italy, Appartemento Elena


Review by Elizabeth from Australia

apartments in Villa Scarpariello on Amalfi coast, Campania


September 2002, 14 days


The Amalfi coast is absolutely stunning. Small beaches and coves surrounded by cliffs charming villages blue blue water. Villa Elena is located on the very edge of the cliff looking out to the sea.

Nearby Amenities

You can walk to the village for groceries, it takes about 15 minutes. Or the management at the villa will have groceries delivered for you. I would suggest renting a car as we did, the road is a little scary and windy but I felt safer driving on it than walking on it.

The House/Apartment

There are about three villas on the property and a tower dating back to the 10 century. Very historical and beautifully kept, you can see and hear the tour boats beside the villa talking about it. There is an apartment above and one below, our apartment was very peaceful and private. The apartment is old but in good shape with antique furnishings. Very clean.


We were served breakfast in the garden every morning which looks out over the sea the pool and the village 2 kilometres away. Surrounded by citrus and fig trees the gardens and landscaping are breathtaking with old marble statues hidden around every corner. Stunning. The villa has quite a large pool with sunbeds, it also has access to the sea where you can swim and snorkel.


The old spring beds were not very comfortable.


The kitchen was small clean and functional.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

We booked through Summer In Italy on the internet. They were very professional and most helpful.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

I would recommend this villa to others, and I will definately go back there again. I am not sure if I would recommend the villa for families with small children, there are a lot of stairs and honeymooners.
