CASA MERA - FURORE
Situated 10km away from the cliffs of Amalfi along hairpin bends overlooking spectacular views, Furore - an unspoiled village of scattered houses right above the Amalfi drive cliffs - is the alternative to the well-known seaside resorts of the Amalfi Coast. It represents a rural escape, not yet discovered by mass tourism and offers breathtaking views, typical craftsmanship and beautiful walking itineraries.
The terraced vineyards that produce the 'Furore doc' wine drop precipitously to the sea forming an impenetrable, deep rocky gorge, one of the most impressive natural features along this coastline. There are several churches, chapels and ancient ruins.
Casa Mera is a splendid three-storey villa on the top of a steep mountain overlooking the sea.
It is 200sqm in total and it sleeps 8 people into 2 separate and beautifully appointed houses, each with comfortable indoor and outdoor living spaces. They can be rented either separately or together for a larger group of up to 8 people. They share a private swimming pool, a large terrace and a garden, all with a wide and splendid view of the sea and of the Amalfi Coast.
There is a total of four apartments in this property: three of them are rented and one is reserved for the owner who rarely occupies it.
The interiors are extremely bright and airy; they have been recently renovated and elegantly furnished with a mixture of traditional, elegant and modern furniture and fittings, to offer comfortable holiday accommodation.
The floors are tiled with majolica tiles with splendid designs and colours, hand-made by local artisans.
Moreover, those who like hiking will be able to easily reach the famous trail called 'Sentiero degli Dei' (Path of the Gods), the popular trekking route from Agerola towards Positano.
Casa Mera is accessed from street level going up a private walkway. Casa Mera Uno is 35 steps above street level while Casa Mera Due is reached climbing a further stairway of 15 steps for a total of 50 steps from street level.
