About this listing

Trotula Charming House. Is an apartment of historical-artistic importance renovated and restored to protect and enhance the original ambience. The privileged and dominant position, close to the main tourist and cultural attractions of the Old Town, allows you to admire the Amalfi Coast and the sea from the wide windows. The two double bedrooms and the single sofa-bed in the living area can accommodate up to 5 people

The space

Trotula Charming House is set in an ancient Convent of the order of Benedictine Olivetan monks converted into a noble residence at the end of 1600, in the historic center of Salerno (within the restricted traffic area) between the ancient Duomo and the Garden of Minerva .
The apartment has been refurbished and restored to the highest standards, enhancing the original ambience.
On the thick walls plastering and frescoes dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries were discovered and recovered. The high wooden beam ceilings, brought to light through the demolition of the false ceilings ennoble once again the ambience. The privileged and dominant position of the historic-artistic prestige building allows you to admire from the wide windows the roofs of the Old Town, the sea of Salerno and the Amalfi Coast.
The renovation project was planned and realized by the “Architects at Work” Studio. The project is characterized by hand made furniture and an accurate selection of furnishing items. A particular accuracy is immediately evident and the contemporary restoring is well matched with the historical place. The guest will immediately be enchanted by the unique atmosphere.
The living room is equipped with a kitchen, a large sofa (with one single extra bed) and a table. The two double bedroom are separated from the living by two doors. The bedrooms are equipped with private bathrooms and balconies. All spaces are really bright thanks to the southern exposure and characterized by the sea view.
The downtown, the old town and the nearby Roma Boulevard and Vittorio Emanuele Boulevard are the centre of city life. The area is filled with cafés, restaurants and shops.
The Amalfi Coast is easily reachable by bus from the close bus stop or by ferry from the “Masuccio Salernitano” Marina.

Our fairly chaotic family of five visited Salerno, primarily to attend the Giffoni film Festival, but also hoping to immerse ourselves into the Amalfi lifestyle. We had a fabulous time. Let's start with the beautiful apartment. Alessandro has restored a historic property, complete with some ancient beautiful frescos. He has set these traditional features against eclectic and contemporary furniture and design. The place doesn't doesn't feel precious however. It feels welcoming, and we just fell into a rhythm with it. The apartment can split into two properties. We took the whole place, which easily accommodated the five of us. The beds are massive and so so comfortable. There are cool modern bathrooms, and fantastic showers, as well as a good sized kitchenette, although we didn't cook, preferring instead to explore Alessandro's culinary recommendations - unfailingly good each time. The apartment is in the Old Quarter - a beguiling location, set among a labyrinth of alleyways, stairways, ancient gardens and gorgeous vistas. The view from the apartment looks across roofs and out to sea. The place is just magic. To top it all off, there's the man himself. Alessandro is THE consummate host who knows what his guests need, and who can organise anything. He put together a boat trip along the Amalfi coast (breathtaking) and a driver and guided visit to Pompeii. Any questions we had about the locality always got a swift response, via (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN). The day we flew back to Wales, my wife discovered she had left her laptop at the property. One call, and Alessandro had arranged to return said item by international courier. Thank you Alessandro for welcoming us into your beautiful property, and for making our stay so easy, and one we will never forget. One day we hope to return.
