This apartment has more than enough space and has everything you need for a holiday on the Amalfi coast. The view from the balcony over the village and across the bay is superb. It is easy to walk down into Atrani then on to Amalfi (30 minutes or less). However, on your return it is 323 steps back up.
The drive from the main road to your parking place is not for the less confident driver, being very steep with numerous sharp, tight and blind bends.
The shared pool is excellent and very welcome after a day out in the heat. A lot of the time we had it to ourselves.

We stayed at the Villa Rosa in apartment Magnolia for 5 glorious nights. Laura and Armando were helpful and responsive and the apartment comfortably accommodated our group of 6. The grounds are amazing - everywhere we turned there was a lovely veranda, garden or lemon grove and the views will blow your mind. The kitchen was large and spotless, as was the entire property. We would stay here again and recommend the property to friends.
Some things to note:
* The driveway to the property (which is gated and private) is treacherous. We had a large van and had considerable trouble getting in and out. If you have a Vespa or regular sized car (or even a mini van) you will not have a problem.
* The stairs leading to the village of Atrani are not for the faint of heart! We are relatively healthy and really struggled climbing back to our villa each day. On a positive note, if you're looking for a workout while on vacation, this is will hit the spot.
* Speaking of stairs, the entire property is like a wild maze of steps and hidden alcoves. Charming as heck but not handicapped accessible and could be a serious challenge for some. I had to stop for rest twice just getting to the laundry room!
* We had to furnish pretty much all the necessities you will need in the kitchen such as dishsoap, tin foil, paper towels, etc. Stop at the market in Ravello or Amalfi before you check in because you will not want to lug groceries up those steps if you shop at the market in Piazza Umberto.
