The Agriturismo Sant'Alfonso is located in Furore, a splendid village
along the Amalfi Coast, set on the typical terraced slopes from where you can enjoy
a stunning sea view. It is said that the village's name comes from "Terra Furoris",
indicating the fury of the sea on the cliffs.
The Cuomo family undertook radical renovation work on the 17th century farmhouse,
preserving many outstanding period architectural features, such as the murals in
the small entrance hall, its structure and antique portals, the kitchen furnace
with central chimney and smokehouse, a laundry equipped with tanks and wash-tubs
and antique majolica tiles, used into the modern flooring.
Every corner of the property evokes an energetic rural life, testified by the central
well, fed by a natural spring that was also used to irrigate the garden, a traditional
barbecue and circular press, carved out of a 12 meters high oak tree.
The silence, peace and beauty of this location inspired the Redemptorist Fathers
to build the chapel dedicated to Sant'Alfonso M. de' Liguori (still existing) and
the monastery, which today is the farmhouse.
