Casa Raffaele Conforti History
The lemon is the symbolic fruit of the Amalfi Coast, whose terraces planted with citrus orchards, in Winter are colored in all shades of yellow. Among the lemon farmers who in the nineteenth century embarked on this activity, accumulating sometimes great fortunes, there was also Raffaele Conforti, a native of Maiori. And right here, in the oldest street of the historic center, just a hundred meters from the sea, is the former home of this entrepreneur whose construction ended at the end of the 1800s, which today, thanks to the initiative of Anna and Andrea Cimini has found a new feature. The house, located on the second floor of a noble palace, houses what could be called a small charming hotel, which offers bedrooms, all with terrace, and a reception hall decorated with precious frescoes, the result of the prestigious local school of "Costaioli". Thus, one can choose between the angel women of the Muse room and the sinuous dancing odalisques of the Turkish room, while the Filomena Reale suite, a romantic alcove, has a frescoed bathroom with a whirlpool bath. As evidenced by the correspondence with the famous Viiano ebanian cabinet maker Siano, all the furnishings were personally commissioned by Conforti in the early twentieth century. Remained in their place, without inserting any other elements except modern comforts, they create charming environments, typical of a private home, where it is not difficult to be immediately at ease.
Among the services offered, also some agreements to make the stay more pleasant for guests: with a private beach and some typical restaurants in the area, such as "La Locanda Amalphitana" just 100 m from the structure, without time constraints or choice of meal in case of half board, where a simple and genuine cuisine takes up the traditional dishes of Campania accompanied by a selection of local and national labels.
