Atrani is a beautiful, small seaside village, with approx. 1000 inhabitants. It’s considered one of the gems of the Amalfi Coast and is greatly favored among travelers because of its stunning position on the beach at the entrance to the Dragone Valley, its picturesque narrow streets and lovely Piazzetta, and its tranquility and calm atmosphere.

The village has a good selection of bars and restaurants, that receive visitors also from other parts of the coast. You will also find a small grocery store, a butcher, a fishmonger, a fruit and vegetable store, a newsagent, among others. A ten minutes walk around the headland will take you to the larger and more lively Amalfi, where you’ll find what the shops in Atrani can’t provide. Amalfi is also a centre of public transportation, with boats or buses going to Capri, Cilento, Salerno, Naples, Pompei, Sorrento as well as the rest of the famous Amalfi Coast.

BEDROOMS

Each of the houses two bedrooms has a double bed, plus a double mattress on a small mezzanine (in one of the rooms the mezzanine is suitable for two children or one adult, not ideal for two adults). In the living room the sofa doubles as two single beds. We also have two extra guest mattresses that may be available upon request, to make room for up to 12 people.

Downstairs you’ll find two bedrooms, each with a double bed and walk-in closet. A small mezzanine over the walk-in closets provides another bed space equipped with a double mattress, which makes the rooms ideal family rooms. A large bathroom (with washing machine) is accessible from the hall outside the bedrooms.
