Palazzo Vingius is a small cosy hotel with just 9 rooms, located above the harbour and the beach in the centre of Minori town, with great views of the town and the sea.
The hotel is housed in one of the town's old palaces, and opened as a hotel in the summer of 2007. It is owned by the friendly couple Trofimena and Andrea, who are also responsible for the daily operations. There are approx. 100 steps from street level on the harbour up to the front desk, but if you arrive by car or public bus, there is also access to the top floor from the coastal road that runs right behind the building.
On the way up to the front desk, you pass the hotel's communal terrace where there is a jacuzzi, Turkish bath (extra charge) and sunbeds. There is also a small bar and breakfast room. On the common terrace, it is possible to enjoy a cold beer or a glass of wine after the day's experiences, whilst you watch over activities on the beach and seafront promenade. As an added bonus, hotel guests have free access to the family's private beach in the neighbouring town of Maiori, where there are both sun loungers and parasols. Maiori is Amalfi Coasts longest beach and can be reached by public bus in 5 minutes, or you can get a lift with Andrea if he is going that way.
The rooms are spread over 3 floors. The 3 upper rooms have no balconies but they do have the best view. All rooms are simply but elegantly furnished, and Trofimena spent a lot of time sourcing the right materials to fit the rooms. All rooms have sea views, wi.fi, telephone, satellite TV with LCD screen, mini-bar, safe, air conditioning and a bathroom with shower, hairdryer and toilet.
Minori is well connected by public transport, and you should consider that all parking in this area is on a 'first come first served' or payment basis if you arrive by car.
