Casa Tertulla is an apartment of 130 square meters (about 1400 square feet) for eight people, with a large private terrace with splendid views of the coast and the sea, as well as shared use of a swimming pool. It has a parking space.
It has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, one living room with two single divan beds, a kitchen and an entryway.
Casa Tertulla is on the second floor of an ancient villa with thick stone walls built directly into the cliffside. The rooms are all spacious and bright, with views of the valley or of the sea.
You enter into a broad living room, around which the three bedrooms and the kitchen are situated. One of the bedrooms has a double bed, the other two have two single beds each. The two bathrooms, one with tub and the other with shower, are ensuite to two of the bedrooms. In the living room, there is a table for meals and two divans that can be converted into two single beds.
From this room, as well as from one of the bedrooms, you will have access to a magnificent terrace of 20 square meters (about 215 square feet), furnished with table, chairs and deckchairs. Sitting here in the cool open air, you will have a front-row seat to the breathtaking panorama across the Valley of the Dragon and Atrani, and all the way to the sea.
The kitchen is equipped with four-burner cooker, oven and refrigerator with freezer. The furnishings are graceful and comfortable.
Casa Tertulla is one unit of a small residential complex consisting of a villa and three annexed buildings, scattered across a few hectares of terraced land cultivated with olives, lemons and the wild-growing Mediterranean scrub native to the Amalfi Coast.
The complex is situated on the slope of a small, narrow valley known as the Valley of the Dragon, where it is perched above the village of Atrani, which is roughly 2 km (about 1.3 miles), and beneath the residences of Ravello, located at roughly 4 km (about 2.6 miles).
The valley is traversed by just a pedestrian path, but the complex is easily reachable by car, journeying along a road adjacent to the valley, and is equipped with parking.
All the guests of the complex will enjoy access to a lovely pool, equipped with umbrellas and deckchairs.
Stretched out in the sun on the terrace surrounding the pool, you will be able to enjoy a rich and strikingly unique panorama.
If you raise your eyes upwards, you will see just above you the rocky outcroppings on which Ravello clings to the cliffside. In particular you will see the balustrade, decorated with statues, of the terrace of Villa Cimbrone, known as "The Infinite."
In front of you, you will see the opposite side of the valley, where jagged cliffs alternate with lush terraces cultivated with lemon groves.
Below, framed by the nearly vertical walls of the valley, your gaze will find the glittering gem that is the town of Atrani, as well as the ocean beyond.
The pool and the gardens are illuminated in the evenings.
The ancient pedestrian path and stairway that links Ravello with Atrani and the sea passes just next to the house.
Descending by this path, you will pass through the center of Atrani, which is accessible only to pedestrians. Here, you will find a gracious piazza with shops, cafés/bars and restaurants with open-air seating, and you can also easily reach the beach. The pathway contains 300 stairs.
You can easily get back up to the apartment by car or bus: the drive along the public road to Ravello is just 3 or 4 km (2 or 2.5 miles).
You can walk to Amalfi along a romantic pedestrian alley, which will allow you to avoid the nuisance of cars.
By foot, climbing an ancient stairway, you can also quickly reach Ravello, even more quickly than by car.
And walking along this stairway you will be able to enjoy breathtaking views. During your stay, allow yourself the time to take these hikes. It is a great approach to the unique beauty of these places.
Besides being able to walk to the beach, in this area you will have a chance to swim in rather characteristic places: from the docks in Amalfi, every 30 minutes, you will be able to board small boats that will take you, in ten minutes, to some of the most beautiful beaches, inset in the rocky coast, which can only be reached by boat. These small beaches are very romantic, the sea is beautiful, and you will also find beach facilities, such as cafés/bars and restaurants.
From the docks in Amalfi you will also be able to board ferries and hydrofoils to Positano, Capri, Salerno, Sorrento and Naples, as well as mini-cruises for tourists. You must indeed take a tour of the coast from the sea.
From Casa Tertulla it is also easy and practical to reach the tourist spots of the Amalfi Coast by bus. If you are fond of archaeology, Pompeii, Herculaneum and Paestum are easily within reach, and, of course, Naples and Salerno as well.
Staying at this house you will be able, comfortably and without the need of a car, to reach the beach, to take guided tours, visit the characteristic fashion and artisans' shops, as well as attend the many cultural and artistic happenings that take place throughout the year.
Those who like go out at night will find that the Amalfi Coast has a lot to offer: from piano-bars to very exclusive night clubs.
You can walk to Amalfi, both along the main road or along a romantic pedestrian alley, which will allow you to avoid the nuisance of cars.
The closest airport is Naples.
