What customer think about our service:

Dear Fortuna,

Marilyn and I were welcomed by the wonderful Mrs Fortuna and Sofia, the owner of the beautiful apartment “Casa Bellavista” in Vettica, the next town west of Amalfi. The apartment was completely renovated 12 months ago to a very high standard. The modern bathrooms are particularly impressive. The spacious deck that has great views over the coast and Mediterranean Sea since the apartment is half way up the hillside.
The apartment is only a dozen or so steps from the road where we were able to park our rental car every evening. There is a bus stop close by but to get around a car is a great asset. We travelled only one day on the bus down to the town of Amalfi and that was a good thing to do because I could actually look at everything other than oncoming traffic on the windy narrow roads. A mini market, nearby the apartment, is convenient for provisions but it is not open every day.
Sofia called in on our last day and returned our deposit in full. She then showed us over the amazing villa beneath the apartment. It is luxurious and Sofia is obviously proud of what she has achieved here.
Mrs Fortuna had arranged for Peter to collect us from Naples train station in his taxi and bring us to the apartment. Peter assisted with the hire of our yellow Fiat Panda car and at the end of our stay he brought a man to collect the car at the apartment. Peter then drive us to Rome Airport for our return journey home to Sydney. It couldn’t have been easier!

Marilyn and I are very happy to recommend Mrs Fortuna and Sofia to fellow travellers.

Dear Fortunata,

We are home, and telling our friends and family about the wonderful apartment in Atrani, “Casa Gianni”. It was great to meet you and your husband. You were very kind and generous. And Antonella, too! We also appreciated the the luggage service up the stairs to the apartment.

We LOVED the apartment. We loved the antique furniture and the handpainted tiles on the walls. At first, we were a little concerned about the location and size of the kitchen. But it was well equipped and very functional. It worked well for us! The view from the terrace: the village, the Church of Santa Maria Maddalena, and the sea, were hard to walk away from. I think I took 20 photos of that view! We LOVED being in little Atrani, instead of a larger tourist town. Yet, Amalfi was an easy 10 minute walk if we needed more. There restaurants in Atrani were great, and it was nice to be able to walk back “home” after dinner.

Our 8 days there will be a special memory forever. We hope to return soon, and stay longer!

Our warmest thanks,

P.S. Thank you for the Limoncello!

Dear Signora Fortuna,

As promised, I am writing to let you know that we are now back in the US, at our home in California. I hope everything in the flat was okay when we left. I’m sorry I didn’t have a chance to call you when we left, but we did leave Sunday at 10:00 a.m. and took the bus for Sorrento, where we stayed one night and then to Naples for a few days before returning home.  We really liked the flat very much and were very happy to stay there and would certainly recommend it to friends. It was so comfortable and had everything we needed, especially once we found out where the famous “grand coltello” was (we never thought to look under the oven!).  We grew fond of Amalfi very quickly and would love to return sometime. We were also very pleased to make your acquaintance and to meet Pina and also your husband. You were all so kind and helpful to us, we really felt welcome. I do hope that you and husband have the chance to visit the Grand Canyon in the very near future, and do please stay in touch–we would love to hear from you. Give our regards to Pina as well (we even ran into her on one of our several visits to the Porto Salvo gelateria).

With the very best wishes.

Arrivederci,

Dear Fortunata,

The stay at the Villa Fiordaliso and the apartments Iris and Casette was wonderful. We were the first to use these new well appointed apartments on the beautiful Villa grounds. The rooms contained all the amenities needed. The view and the gardens were stunning. The Villa is located in a quiet neighborhood, and is about a 10 minute walk along ancient steps to the center of Ravello, and is a shorter walk to Villa Rufulo.
But, best of all, the Villa owners were gracious and hospitable. They told us the history of the beautiful Villa and the story of their family. In celebration of being their first guests they also hosted and provided a dinner for both us and the art students that we were traveling with. Absolutely fabulous!

I would recommend the apartments and the Villa, and I look forward to returning many times.

Ciao Fortunata

We are all back home safely after a wonderful holiday in Italy. We enjoyed our stay in Casa Adrjana very much. The apartment was all and more than we expected!! Very clean and spacious, well equipped and a beautiful setting with good location. Your service was excellent and very friendly. The helpful assistance with everything concerning our stay and our daughter’s wedding was most appreciated. We would recommend it to anyone. Thank you very much. Hope to see you again.

Kind regards.

Hello Fortunata,

We had a great time staying at Casa Adrjana. The location was perfect with a beautiful view of the sea and just seconds away from the bus stop which made travel so easy. Since the apartment is on the road, access is very easy, though the downside to this that there is noise from traffic. The apartment itself is very comfortable with two spacious bedrooms and en suite shower rooms, perfect for couples. The kitchen was also well equipped. The best part of staying at the apartment, however, was the warm, energetic hospitality of the landlady who made a DELICIOUS fruit tart to welcome us and was available to ask for help and guidance whenever we needed it. If you stay here, you are sure to look back at your stay in the Amalfi coast with fond memories.

Kind regards,

Dear Fortunata

Thank you so much for your kind help in arranging apartment “Attico” for our recent stay in Amalfi. The warm attention that we received from you and your husband and also Antonella was very much appreciated. The apartment is lovely and the views spectacular. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Amalfi and enjoyed great views, great food and wine and met some beautiful people during our time there. I cant recommend you highly enough.

Hi Fortunata,

It is very good to hear from you. We loved our stay in the Contessa apartment: it was light and spacious, ideal for our family of six. We shall certainly return. The apartment as ideally located: near to the shop, sea and the agency. Fortunata and her team were extremely helpful and everything was well-organized to make travelling with a young child easy.

Kind regards,

Hi Fortunata Hope you and your family are well. We would like to thank you for all of your assistance in arranging the apartment ” Tania” in Amalfi and all the help you gave us whilst we were there. We really enjoyed our stay in Amalfi and will be looking to return next year, perhaps with other members of my family. I am sorry to hear about the tragedy in Atrani. Thank you.

Hi Mrs. Fortunata, Once again, thanks for the wonderful week in Amalfi and the apartment L’Ulivo. We enjoyed the stay very much and we wish to thank you for all the support and kind help before and during our trip. The apartment was exactly what we expected (if not better) and it made our trip to Italy to something that we will soon forget. Thanks you so much and we hope to see you soon again in Amalfi!!

Cara Fortunata, Abbiamo trascorso sette giorni meravigliosi nel appartamento ‘Il Tarì’. Ogni mattina abbiamo fatto colazione sul terazzo grande di 20 metri quadri con un panorama fantastica del mare, del centro storico e anche delle montagne. Anche dalle tre finestre si poteva godere lo stesso panorama. L’appartamento era pulito e con una cucina ben attrezzato. Sarà anche difficile trovare un appartamento più centrale. L’appartamento e a due minuti dalla piazza, il duomo e la spiaggia. Un sogno!

We are now back in Australia and thank you for the train timetable; we did catch the 12.45pm fast train. Your assistance with this was much appreciated. We loved our stay at Mare Blu; the views were spectacular and the apartment was very clean and the views from the windows were gorgeous. Both yourself and your husband were very helpful, and our son River loved the Easter egg. Maria who meet us was also wonderful and extremely helpful- very professional service. Thanks again and we will be sure to recommend your services to friends and family who travel to Amalfi. regards Nina, Richard and River

We had a lovely time at the apartment “Maria” in Amalfi .

The beds were very comfortable and the location and views were stunning.

The views from the apartment window were magnificent and the apartment was ideally located in the heart of the town. Stunning views and a warm, homey atmosphere.

I could have stayed for months.

Thank you

Dear Senjora Fortunata,

I want to thank you for the excellent vacation, that we have in Stefania apartment in Amalfi last week.

We enjoyed the apartment very much! When booking I had a various choice among villas and apartments, but now I see, that have made a proper choice.

It has lots of benefits: central location – a few steps and you are on the main street, quite surroundings and the marvelous views from all three balconies.

Exquisite ancient furniture in the living room, bright ornaments on the floors and cosy atmosphere make it unforgettable.

We are definitely planning to come back to this nice place.

Kind regards,

Dear Mrs. Fortunata,

Our holiday spent on the Amalfi Coast was truly fantastic and made so by the assistance and welcome we received from Amalfi Accomodation.

Whilst researching and booking a villa the agency were extremely attentive and helpful in finding us a villa according to our budget.

Twelve of us decided on staying at the Villa Borgo San Pietro in Vettica, just a few km away from Amalfi.

The villa was beautiful, comfortable and spacious with plenty of communal areas and gardens to cater for such a large group. All rooms were spacious and the views breathtaking.

I must also mention the owner for his warm attentiveness to all of our needs.

Again on arrival and during our week, Amalfi Accomodation were very helpful and continued to do their upmost in ensuring us that that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We had no problems during our time on the Amalfi coast and I cannot recommend the villa or the agency enough.

Hi, I would be glad too.

We had a wonderful time in Amalfi and found your agency, the owners of the apartment “La Baia” and the people in Amalfi extremely friendly and useful.

We will and have already recommended the area to many friends!

Thanks very much, we also really appreciate your help getting our phone back as well.

Hello Mrs. Fortunata,

 

I am so sorry for my late answer – I’ve been rather busy these days.

But let me tell you that my girlfriend and I were very much pleased with our stay at the apartment “La Mansarda” we rented through you.

Everything was as advertised and even better on many points – especially the breathtaking view of the Amalfi city centre and coastline.

We were treated with utmost friendliness, both from you and from the owners of the apartment, and our stay there was – as I’ve experienced before – extremely enjoyable.

We will not hesitate to make use of your services again, and I will certainly recommend you to everyone I know who would like to visit your lovely part of Italy.

 

Yours truly,
Massimo

Amalfi and the Coast is breaktakingly beautiful and has a romantic feel about it.

Hi, Fortunata

I’m a bit late in sending this, but I want you to know that we loved the apartment L’Infinito. Thank you for helping us arrange this wonderful vacation!

Good afternoon Tina,

Both myself and my husband enjoyed Amalfi immensely. All our friends and family share the same feelings.

We all found the accommodation excellent and exactly what was advertised on the website was what we got as so often is not the case.

I found Agenzia Immobiliare Torre very professional, helpful and friendly.

Accommodation was clean and very well equipped, beautiful apartments and villas.

The boys who stayed in the Villa are still talking about it.

I have no doubt that I will return to Amalfi soon and will of course using your services again as will my friends and family.

Thanking you for all your hospitality in making our holiday a lovely experience.

 

Kind Regards

We truly enjoyed our stay at Mare Blu and Little Mare Blu in Amalfi.

The setting in the hills above the town of Amalfi amongst lemon orchards was enchanting.

The cottages were immaculate and had everything we needed for our 4 day stay.

We were able to get into the Amalfi rhythm – strolling the streets in town, buying groceries and making dinner ourselves, enjoying the extraordinary views from our porch.

It was a magical vacation. We will definitely be back!

Thank you, Fortunata!

Dear Fortunata,

 

Thank you so much for the week we spent in your lovely Amalfi apartment Tania.

We had a wonderful holiday, and we all thought Amalfi was just great – a beautiful place, and everything you need just outside the door.

The views were amazing, and we took some very nice walks, especially the one past the papermills (my legs were sore for a while!)

Everyone was really friendly, and by the end of the week we had learned the Italian words for the food we wanted to buy in the shops. It was all very good fun.

The apartment was ideal too, and very well equipped. We loved sitting on the balcony in the evenings and watching the world go by.

It was easy to cook in and everything worked out really well. Just an idea – the English (or some of them) like to make a lot of tea, therefore a kettle might be useful. Also a bread-knife?

And we had a little bit of trouble with the electricity in the kitchen – the oven seemed to make the electricity go off sometimes, we didn’t know why. Just to let you know!

 

Anyway thanks again for a really enjoyable holiday and all the things you did to help us.

 

Very best wishes
Ted and Kate Mole.

Nous avons été très satisfaits des services de l’agence immobilière Torre. Elle a été très serviable et disponible.

L’appartement que nous avons loué par son entremise était très bien équipé et en parfait état, tout à fait conforme au descriptif que nous avions reçu.

 

Nous ne pouvons que recommander Agenzia Immobiliare Torre

Good Morning,

I am writing to thank you for the lovely time that we spent in Amalfi.

We rented the Villa Francesca from yourselves and it was absolutly fantastic. The Villa was everything that you advertised that it would be and was perfect for us as it was right in the middle of Amalfi. As for Amalfi itself We were amazed at how beautiful it was, the setting was perfect for my brothers wedding and I can confirm that all of us had a fanastic time.

Thank you so much for the use of the lovely villa. Yours very much in appreciation

Dear Fortunata,

Again thank you for all your help!

“We are truly pleased with the service we received from Agenzia Immobiliare Torre! Prior to, and during our stay, Mr and Mrs. Torre and their agency accommodated all our requests, eased our worries, and provided very helpful hints for travel in the area. From the first time we stepped foot in Amalfi, they treated us more like family than like customers. Everyone went out of their way to be helpful and to give us a true glimpse of the generosity, beauty and good spirit that abounds in this town and the surrounding area. Our apartment was superb, and our stay was delightful. Grazie, Mr. and Mrs. Torre!

Thank you Agenzia Torre for your part in a really fantastic holiday!

Our flat was perfect for a couple, clean and comfortable, and we had a really beautiful view of the bay from our balcony.

We found Amalfi had a lot to offer, we spent our time walking along the ancient mule paths from Amalfi into the mountains and surrounding villages.

We walked through terraces of lemon groves and vineyards heavy with fruit, and higher up were treated to amazing panoramic views over the bay and surrounding mountains. Wooded areas of pine and chestnut were carpeted with a profusion of wild pink cyclamen. Locals anywhere in the villages and paths were very friendly and even offered us lemons or grapes from their family terraces. We found the countryside behind the bustling tourist centre of Amalfi wonderfully rustic; locals still use donkey’s and mules to carry loads of firewood up the steep paths where many of the houses are still not accessible by road and farmers can be seen carrying basketfuls of lemons to the market on their backs.

The sounds of the valley include the dull clinking of the bells of goats and mountain sheep and the regular church bells throughout the day keep accurate time to the quarter hour! Every village has several churches and chapels which are decorated with intricate mosaics, painted ceramic tiles and frescos. You can see beautiful coloured fish amongst the rocks when you go snorkelling just a few metres from the beach and try travelling the Neapolitan way – by boat. From the boat you can see how the pretty pastel painted houses cling to the steep limestone cliffs above and there are ruins of both Saracen and Norman fortifications dotted along the coast.

 

The holiday and relaxation worked its magic, we came back engaged to be married!

Dear Fortunata and family

 

I am writing to say thank you very much indeed for all your help and hospitality during my stay in Amalfi.
The apartment was delightful, with everything to hand for a thoroughly enjoyable holiday. It was an adventure finding new things to try from the alimentari and the supermercato, making my way back up to the apartment through the maze of passages and stairways. It was nice to know you were nearby, and so welcoming and helpful if I had any questions. My visit to Ravello was lovely, and I managed to find my way back down the many steps to Amalfi without making too many wrong turns! The weather was wonderful and I felt really well-rested and refreshed when I went home again.
This was my third holiday in La Divina Costiera, I just cannot take in the beauty of the scenery and every time it takes my breath away. I keep meaning to try somewhere else as Italy is such a beautiful country but somehow Amalfi draws me back!
I am sure I will be back again soon, and I will definitely follow your suggestion and try one of your many other lovely apartments next time. I keep telling everyone they must visit Fortunata and stay in Amalfi!

 

With many thanks
