Thanks to its ideal situation between mountains and sea, the Amalfi Coast offers hiking enthusiasts and nature-lovers numerous possibilities to enjoy the breathtaking views, which through the centuries, have enticed many a painter, writer and poet from around the world.
The “Rifugio degli Dei” is the perfect place from which to embark on various excursions and walk, for example, from Arienzo one can take the stairs up to the small village of Nocelle from which it is easy to find one’s way to the “Sentiero degli Dei”, the Path of the Gods, an approximate 11 km walk which will delight one’s senses, or perhaps even the “Alta Via dei Monti Lattari”, the High Road of Monti Lattari, which brings one to the “Parco dei Monti Lattari”.
Following a path, in around 10 minutes one can reach the oasis of “Vallone Porto” with its waterfalls and numerous species of fauna and flora indigenous to this valley – wild orchids, ferns, falcons, owls, amphibians (including to this yellow-eyed salamander) – all of which provide an inestimable wealth of natural beauty to this area.
Let’s not forget the sea which lies below! In just 15 minutes by steps from the Country House one will find one self on the tranquil beach of Arienzo.
