Location
Il Postino apartment is situated in Castiglione di Ravello, along the slopes of Ravello, but only 2,5 Km. from Amalfi and 4 Km. from Ravello. Nearest grocery shop 1,6 Km., supermarket 2 Km., however SITA public buses stop just outside which is on the Ravello - Amalfi bus line (almost every 20 minutes).
From Amalfi there are SITA buses which connect all the Amalfi Coast towns, and also ferry boats to Capri Positano and Sorrento Coast.
One of the ancient trails connecting Ravello and Atrani passes alongside the building. It leads down through lemon groves on to the famous Maddalena church of Atrani.
For the more enthusiastic walkers, steps lead all the way up to Ravello too!

If you are fond of archaeology, Pompeii, Herculaneum and Paestum are easily within reach, and, of course, Naples and Salerno as well.

How to get there
There are several ways to get to Castiglione di Ravello/Amalfi Coast from Naples Capodichino Airport or Naples/Salerno Train station either by renting a car or by public transport.

The property is located 26 Km. (16 miles) West of Salerno (about 50 minutes drive) and 65 Km. (40 miles) South-East of Naples (about a 90 minute drive).

If choosing to arrive with public transport, it would depend on your arrival time at the airport/train station. Visit Amalfi Coast Transport to see which option (Bus or Ferry) will suit you best.

The easiest way to reach any destination on the Amalfi Coast from Naples airport or train station is to hire a taxi for a private transfer.
Arranging for a private transfer reduces the stress of arriving on the Amalfi Coast, and eliminates the expenses and difficulties of driving in the area.

Family from Cambridge, United Kingdom Aug 2019

Booked an 11 night stay and, after a phone call to the property company from Ravello, we were warmly met on the roadside by Velia who showed us where to park and helped us take our luggage to the apartment down the steps from the roadside. The property felt very secure with a locked gate from the stair passageway into the garden area. Velia was very thorough in her introduction to the property and the photos match the appearance of the apartment. Although Velia lives on the property herself (at the top - this apartment is in the middle and a small, 2 bed apartment below) she was always available for help if needed but equally gave us enough space to feel relaxed and private. We really appreciated the fruit and vegetables she provided from her own produce on the property - thank you, Velia!

One thing we particularly enjoyed was the ability to sit out in shade throughout the day - at the side of the property overlooking lemon trees in the morning, and at the front overlooking the sea in the afternoon.

The kitchen was well-equipped for our needs (though a kettle would be a nice addition for tea-lovers like me!) and beds were comfortable. No change of bedlinen was offered during our stay, but with access to a washing machine and ironing board we were able to wash them ourselves. Having two bathrooms was a real plus. Mosquito-repellent candles and coils were provided (it's Italy - they were going to be there!) and appreciated (my daughter and I are very juicy to mosquitos and were bitten anyway!). It was soooo hot at night, and humid towards the end of our stay - wish we had paid for the air conditioning, though it's rather expensive at €8 per day. Earlier in our stay, the open balcony shutters let in a lovely sea breeze at night and we didn't feel we needed it.

The view from the apartment is gorgeous and there's always something to see on the water, whether that's cruise ships, helicopters collecting water to put out fires or filming speedboats, and fireworks in the next village. It's a lovely (but long!) walk down into Atrani (over 500 steps) which has a few small restaurants, shops and a beach) but that was pleasant to do a couple of times. We also walked on into Amalfi which felt like quite an adventure through the little steep lanes between houses. We took the bus back to the property from Amalfi on one occasion - shout to the driver when you want him to stop! We ended up in Ravello!!

Ultimately, would we stay here again? Yes! And would we recommend to others? Yes, provided they are in good enough health to manage the stairs.

Overall excellent property - shame about the steps but that is typical of the area.

This reviewer told us : The Velia apartment is exactly as described and shown. It has wonderful views and is extremely quiet. The beds were comfortable and the apartment stayed cool even on very warm days. We ate dinner each night out on the balcony. Velia and her husband were incredibly helpful. The only drawback to the apartment is its location. It is a steep set of stairs down to the apartment and back up to the main road and bus stop. The closest grocery store is 339 steps down on the main road. The week we were there, the buses were on strike so we walked the 3 km (including the 339 steps) to Amalfi to catch a boat and then back at the end of each day. It was great exercise for our physically fit family, but this apartment would not be good for those who are not fit.
