About Sonja Whitticase

Hello, I was born and bred in Conca dei Marini, on the stunning Amalfi coast. I fell in love and married a Welshman which meant I left the coast and settled in the UK. About 10 years ago, I built this house in the large gardens and lemon groves left to me by my mother. I return often but I am delighted that others can share what is a very beautiful part of the world.

Sonja Whitticase purchased this villa in 1996

Why Sonja Whitticase chose Salerno province

This property is a luxurious and traditional house with large french windows and the traditional cupolas - famous of the region.

What makes this villa unique

The Amalfi Coast is famous for good reason - it is spectacular and the Mediterranean lifestyle is loved by many. The villa is located right in the centre of the coast.

The small village of Conca means that you can walk everywhere and enjoy some of the coast's loveliest beaches, fresh seafood restaurants and great hikes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Almost all our guests write to us to say how much they loved the villa - here is one example:



The villa itself was comfortable and well kitted out. Often it is a struggle when you stay in a holiday villa but not this time: there was everything we could possibly need in the kitchen, the shower was good, the bed comfy, lots of local info was available and I loved the swing chair! The garden was just lovely - I am a professional gardener and it was so nice being able to sit and look without working! Having access to the washing machine was also useful.



We loved the coast and visited Amalfi, Altrani, Capri, Ravello and Positano. The roads were a bit on the scary side so we went everywhere by bus and boat after that which worked really well. Also loved the Marina in Conca and ate on the beach and had to negotiate the steps back up afterwards!!



Many thanks and hope to stay at the villa again.



Regards,

Mrs Rivers (Stayed - 24/5/12- 31/5/12)

Travel:

Naples Airport is 1hr 15 minutes away. Car hire is recommended for those who want to see many of the sites up and down the Amalfi Coast. For those who wish to walk to the beach, eat locally and focus on relaxing and enjoying Conca, we would recommend a taxi from the airport to the house (we can help you arrange this) and then use buses/taxis for the odd venture outside of Conca.

Further Details:

Conca Dei Marini or 'Conca of the Mariners' is a semi-rural village in the centre of the Amalfi Coast, 10 minutes drive from Amalfi.

The village offers some spectacular walks, excellent restaurants and the classic Mediterranean lifestyle.

Beautiful and Peacful

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week at the villa in June and it's so beautiful. We didn't have a car so had to travel on local buses or by ferry from Amalfi. The other option was to walk which we did on a number of occasions into Amalfi. The villa was perfect with great views out to sea and along the coast being so high up. The facilities were good and a couple of local restaurants provided good food there is also a small supermarket. From a personal point of view we felt that a car would have been a better option but it didn't affect our holiday. If you want somewhere peaceful then this is it. Public transport links are ok but you need to check the timetables. Going to other towns up and down the coast is best by ferry - there's plenty of choice and journeys are not too long. Don't use the taxis they are mega expensive!

In summary a beatiful villa well worth a visit.

A really lovely villa in a fantastic location. Extremely well equipped and cared for.

  • 5 of 5

Sonja has everything really well organised and every detail was attended to. The villa is in a quiet village with 3 excellent restaurants. The beach is a few minutes drive downhill and then a walk down steps to the beach. Water taxis go from here into Amalfi which gives access to Positano without having to drive. Ravello was the highlight of our stay and by the end of the week we felt we had really explored this fantastic coastline.

A perfect location with stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

We initially were planning a package tour of the Amalfi area but took an entirely different approach when we discovered this VRBO offering. We booked the villa and built the entire vacation around those dates. It was perfect for the two of us in a optimum, relaxing location just a short distance away from the more frenetic pace of Amalfi and Positano. We spent one day just relaxing at the villa and walking along the road enjoying the view of the Mediterranean. Antonio and Miriam (your local hosts) at Le Bonta del Capo were an excellent resource for most any concern we had and were invaluable in arranging private cars when local transportation couldn't accommodate us. Their restaurant was a favorite along with Risto, a short walk away. We were very happy having this as a home base to enjoy and explore the area.

Thanks Sonja!

A well equipped compact villa, with a beautiful garden in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed staying in the garden villa for a second time. All the arrangements worked well. We spent most of the time on the beach at Conca, as it was too hot to go sight -seeing by road. We would recommend the water taxi to visit Amalfi in the summer.

It is important to feed the parking meter every day, and to move the car away from the main road prior to the festival of Santa Rosa. Don't park under a tree, or you might find an army of ants has colonised your car as we did!

Returning to the beautiful terrace overlooking the sea each evening was a real pleasure, and we would have no hesitation in booking the property again.

Well situated property clean and tidy with beautiful spacious outdoor area

  • 5 of 5

Nice quite local area to experience true Amalfi coastal area and hospitality. Central to exploring Amalfi town Ravello (a must) Positano and Capri (use La Boa in Praiano) Make sure you use the local buses an experience. Good supermarket and restaurants especially the two near the property.
