About The Experience
With spectacular views of the sea from the pool and the many terraces, this hillside vacation rental on Italy's Amalfi Coast offers comfort and a garden setting from which to enjoy the scenery. This Amalfi Coast villa is also a convenient location for day trips to the towns of Amalfi, Positano, Ravello, Capri, and Sorrento. In an area where parking is difficult to find, the villa rental includes parking spaces for two or three cars. This villa on Italy's Amalfi Coast was newly updated in 2008 and is great for families with children, a groups of friends, and even a wedding party.
Location Description

Villa la Potenza is located along the coastal road about 3 km from the center of Amalfi. The two nearest restaurants, which can deliver food to the villa, are situated about 300 m away from the villa. Shops, banks, post office, and bars are situated in Amalfi. A bus stop marked SITA on the main road just 50 meters from the villa will take you to Positano, while another stop 200 meters from the villa goes to Amalfi. Amalfi is 15 minutes away and Positano is 35 minutes away. Ferries and hydrofoil leave daily from Amalfi to Capri (1 hour), Positano (20 minutes), Ischia (2 hours), and Salerno (1 hour). The services operate only during the summer months. A rental car is recommended when staying in this Amalfi Coast vacation rental. Blue SITA busses cost about 1-2 euros, depending on destination. Stops are marked with a blue and white SITA sign. The small internal bus (orange mini-bus) of Positano is marked by a brown FERMATA sign. Driving times are: Ravello to Amalfi, 15 minutes; Amalfi to Positano, 30 minutes; Positano to Sorrento, 35 minutes. The nearest beaches are located in Amalfi (3 km), or in Conca dei Marini.

Please Note: While the Amalfi Coast is beautiful and charming, it is also steep, with many uphill and downhill stairs and walkways. In general, it is an area that is not kind to those of us with knee or mobility issues. This should be considered before booking a property in this area.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
The villa was beautiful. The staff members who attended to us were truly excellent.
Enjoyed Most:
The view was spectacular. We were constantly outside on the various terraces overlooking the Mediterranean.
Enjoyed Least:
Lots of stairs. Lack of amenities at the pool, i.e. flotation devices for pool, easy access to drinks and snacks. American TV channels.
Surrounding Area:
We loved Amalfi. Walked into the village daily. Loved Capri, Positano, and Ravello. Thoroughly enjoyed all the places we went.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Amalfi. It was walking distance for most of us as we are regular exercise walkers. It was about a one-hour round trip walk.
Tips or Restaurants:
Better soap in bathrooms would have been nice. We went out and bought regular-sized bars of soap.
Directions:
The directions were excellent. We drove from Rome. We actually passed the villa but immediately called our concierge and were quickly re-directed back.
Check In Out:
No. It was very smooth. Carmella, our housekeeper, Antonietta, our concierge and Biago, our driver were fabulous. Biago made our visit absolutely fantastic. We named him the Mayor of Amalfi as he knew everyone and all the best places to visit, eat and shop. Our stay was truly magical.

Overall:
Overall, we strongly recommend this villa because of its comfort and beauty and also because of the excellence of the people associated with the villa and the lovely help we had while we were there.
Enjoyed Most:
The views are spectacular. The villa is very comfortable and well situated for day trips as well as walking. Another review stated that the noise was a problem, but we did not find it to be so.
Enjoyed Least:
A disappointment on arrival was the fact that the steps to the beach no longer exist. They were washed away about a year ago. Thus, the villa has no beach access as anticipated, but we still enjoyed the property very much. On the negative side, when we arrived there were problems with the pool and ants. The pool wasn't clean when we arrived. In addition, there is a great deal of vegetation at this villa that creates a problem with ants. However, the property manager is VERY responsive. The villa was sprayed and the pool cleaned on the same day that we notified her of the problem.
Surrounding Area:
The Amalfi Coast is beautiful and a perfect vacation spot for a family. There is a great deal to do and see. The variety of choices of activities is such that whether you are very adventurous or very laid back, you will find activities to enjoy.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The villa is well situated. We could walk to Amalfi within 20-30 minutes. In addition, there are several restaurants within a 10 minute walk.
Tips or Restaurants:
The property manager arranged for several excursions for us, including a day in Pompeii and a day on Capri. The quality of the excursions was wonderful. We had a boat for 10 of us to Capri and the ride and tour around the island were excellent, as well as the guide we had (Fabian) while on the island. The same was true for our trip to Pompeii, where our drivers gave us interesting facts about the local areas we drove through and our tour guide in Pompeii (Francesca) was very knowledgeable. We would HIGHLY recommend that you hire the chef, Luigi, for an evening. We held a birthday party for our mom. The food was incredible--better than most restaurants.

Overall:
Very good except for the rain.
Enjoyed Most:
The views and outside appointments - pool/spa/bath, terraces, were excellent. Good off-street parking. The maid was superb, going out of her way to help.
Enjoyed Least:
The 2 rooms outside the main building had small bathrooms with shower cubicles many adults could not fit into. The kitchen was quite small.
Surrounding Area:
The views were good but the coastline is beautiful everywhere.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Amalfi. It's a 25-minute walk downhill.
Tips or Restaurants:
Buy your groceries in a big town where they are cheaper. Be prepared for slow driving anywhere along the coast road.
Directions:
GPS not really necessary. There is virtually only one road.
Check In Out:
Very efficient.
