Cetara is in many ways a paradox. You dwell on the Amalfi Coast, which is rightly famous and very popular with tourists from around the world, and yet there is not a single hotel or a single tourist complex in the town, which could easily serve as a backdrop for films from the 1950's. The town has thus no supermarkets, only small grocery shops, a bakers, butchers, etc.,
If the accommodation options could live up to the townscape charm, Cetara would long ago have been a playground for the rich. They do not however. There are very few privately owned apartments that are rented out to visitors, and they are all as authentic as the town itself, but authenticity means in these climes, they are very simple furnished. It is "part of the package," that life is lived here mostly outdoors in the streets in the square and ... in the café bars.
The extremely simple furnished apartment is approximately 400 metres from the sea in a small alley and consists of a living room with a kitchenette (four burner stove, oven and fridge) and a sofa bed for two not to large people, (it is about 120 cm wide) and a double bedroom and a bathroom with a shower and a WC . A staircase of 20 steps lead up to the entrance door.
It was a lovely town, when we got to know it! Amazing, that these little units can be independent municipalities in the same EU as us! The danish supermarket could learn a bit about minimalism, and without the quality and price is high!
Our local contact Franco was very helpful with showing us different practical contacts - maybe we could have had his mail from home?
