Albergo Diffuso #75: Amalfi


It is one of the most popular and visited places in the world. It is a symbol of Mediterranean Italy with the sun, the clear sea, the excellent cuisine and the good living. Amalfi is not just one of the most beautiful places of our country, rather it is a unique and particular life-style. Unfortunately, as most of the astonishing and famous places in the world, it’s not always easy to live them deeply, to get to know them and to establish that incredible sympathy that allows to discover the real soul of one place.

Amalfi doesn’t need great presentations or big descriptions and travel tips about “where to go” and “to do”, because every corner, church, monument or view is just perfect and precious. Instead, it could be harder to find a way to really enter into the village life, to become part of its community, to wake up and see from the balcony the whole Amalfi coastline, to go shopping in the groceries of the village and to talk to your neighbors who have always lived there. Right in the heart of the historic city center, the Albergo Diffuso Convento San Basilio offers the chance to stay inside a building from the XI century, living as real Amalfi locals.

The ancient monastery that once hosted the Amalfi women, then became the seat of the Cappuccini monks and today it has been recovered and resorted to become a beautiful Albergo Diffuso. This AD maintains its original structure and it represents an extremely original type of hospitality, braking up the usual and traditional idea of tourism proposed by regular hotels. Today as yesterday, Convento San Basilio is owned by the same family that offers a sincere and authentic hospitality with 4 different apartments, each one unique and unforgettable. From each room guests can enjoy and incredible view that ranges upon the Amalfi coastline and upon the village. The interiors are simple, as the monastery has always been, but they offer the chance to live the unique emotion to enjoy all the personality and history of this splendid building, placed in the heart of Amalfi.
