After having found the Agriturismo "Il Campanile" in 2009, I went back there for the 4th time in August 2014. This already can give only a positive impression: if one doesn't love a place, one wouldn't go back there four times, right?

I remember really well, already from 2009, the warm and welcoming hospitality of the 2 owners of the Agriturismo. Then, there is this stunning sight from the mountain which one can enjoy after mounting a few hundred steps from the town of Minori to the campanile. Yes, there are a lot of steps, but not too many because they are part of the Amalfi Coast and are well indicated and announced by the operators because - yes, maybe they are not the most convincing thing for elderly people, but they are part of the culture and the structure of the surroundings of this extraordinary and amazing place.

Maybe it is the beauty of the place and its singularity which protect it from mass tourism; and this, from my point of view, is the biggest advantage of the place because the guests at "Il Campanile" can enjoy their holidays in their individual mode, in tranquillity and peace, without being disturbed by a mass of people who don't feel responsible for anything. Be it in the holiday houses or in the camping area: the guest finds the best quality of things and services, always combined with the warm and cordial hospitality of the owners.

I can fully and honestly recommend this place for anyone who is looking for a peaceful and quiet holiday in a natural and welcoming environment, in the heart of one of the most beautiful places of Italy, the Amalfi coast. For this place, "Il Campanile" is a representative not only typical, but extraordinary.

We booked a week in July at Agricultura il Campanile after having read the rave reviews here on tripadvisor. We where looking forward to a relaxing week, my husband, myselfnand our 4 month baby, mostly spent on the lemon scented terrace, outside our very basic but nice house. Unfortunately that is not what we got.

There are four problems: damp (and thereby mould), insects, distance and add on charges.
- Although the outside air does not feel damp, the entire house does, to the extent that all our clothes were damp after the first night and so was the bed we slept in. The dampness creates mould, which the entire house smells of. Mould can also be seen in places in the house, e.g. the shower. This was not a place where we felt comfortable sleeping, and definitely not a place for our 4 month old baby.
- The setting, in a lemon plantation, apparently means lots of insects, especially biting insects. If you stay here you need to be aware of this, as it made the beautiful terrace hard to spend time on during large parts of the day (in particular evenings and mornings when the terrace was in the shade), without being bitten by insects. They were also in the house, and the first night I awoke itching all over. Again, not a relaxing vacation setting, and for sure not a good place for a baby.
- Third, the distance from the centre of Minori. The steps mentioned in other reviews were not the main problem. The real problem is that one has a further 1.6km reasonably steep walk from the town centre to the beginning of the steps. We are young fit people and do not mind walking, but having to walk a total of 2 km (steps included) steep uphill every time you want to get from the town to the house is a hassle. The alternatives are to drive (parking in Minori costs €3/hour) or to use a minibus service that runs every 90 minutes.
- Fourth, the extra charges that you may end up paying. For a start, if you have a car it will cost €8/24hours to park at the bottom of the steps. Then everything beyond the house itself cost extra. It felt a bit like a Ryanair flight, were the final price ends up being significantly higher than expected. To illustrate, a change of towels or bed linens is €18 each. For that price we could buy new towels each day...

We ended up leaving after only two days, moving to a beautiful small hotel in Maiori, where we ended up paying less per night that at il Campanile, parking and breakfast included, and getting just what we wanted from our vacation.

Having said all this, Il Campanile does have an amazing view from the terrace, and the scent of lemon in the air is quite magical. And Salvatore and Ornella are wonderful people, kind, hospitable and always smiling. They helped us up with our bags (and offered to carry them down too, after we left early). And they where very reasonable when we said we could not stay, let us pay for 3 nights (we stayed for 2) and showed no hard feelings whatsoever.

In conclusion, if you are willing to sleep in damp bed linen with a smell of mould, and don't mind mosquito bites and lots if uphill walking, you will have a great vacation here, with beautiful views and nice hosts. If not, I recommend you to find alternative accommodation.

We arrived, on motorcycles, with little evening light left. Be prepared for a steep climb up steps to a camping pitch. They wanted money 'up-front', and knew it was too late in the day to get anywhere else.
Paid more here than anywhere on an extensive tour of Eastern Europe, for worse facilities (the water cut off whilst we were there) than anywhere else.
Excellent view, and met nice fellow campers, but little else to recommend.

We stayed here for two nights camping. It has a spectacular view to wake up to every morning, only room for about four tents. The owner obviously makes up his own prices and starts very high so barter hard for the campsite. It has a basic kitchen with a fridge which is handy. A 20minute walk straight downhill into town. Don t accept the offer of the local wine on arrival, its 5 euros and is worse than vinegar!

This is a great little place perched on the hill on the north side of Minori. To get there you have to climb a fair amount of steps but the effort is worth it! the view on Ravello is amazing and homemade food awaits there if you ordered it. They also have some lemon produces and homemade wine for sale. The limoncello is the best one I ever tried!

Room Tip: This is a great place if you like walking/hiking, it really captures the spirit of the amalfi coast. If you are aiming for a posh-looking hotel and the only stroll you want to do is to the swimming pool, this is not your place...
