About Amalfi Coast

Filters: 110 Villas Match Your Filters

Part of the Campania region, the Amalfi Coast stretches from Salerno to Sorrento. The seaside towns of Positano, Amalfi, and Ravello lie nestled in its craggy coastal landscape. Capri and Ischia, legendary island playgrounds of the rich and famous, offer no end of glittering bays and white sand beaches. While the sun and sea of places like the Villa Capri are sure to captivate, the Amalfi Coast also offers interesting antiquity to those who wish to venture inland, such as the Roman ruins of Herculaneum and Pompeii at the base of Vesuvius, and further south, the Greek temples of Paestum. During your stay in one of our luxury Italian villa rentals you'll discover the cuisine of the Amalfi Coast which highlights all types of seafood and locally grown produce such as lemons, tomatoes, and peppers. While enjoying our private villas in the coastal towns of Positano and Amalfi you'll always find insalata caprese, a delicious salad of sliced tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil, and olive oil. Campania's other specialty is limoncello, a delicate, lemon-infused digestivo that is served ice cold. Throughout the region you'll find an impressive number of excellent eateries, from casual, down-home trattorie to upscale restaurants.

Cascading down the hillside to the Mediterranean in a vertical tumble of white-washed stone, fashionable Positano is a wonder to behold.

This is a hiker’s paradise with over 100 km of signed trails, so bring your walking shoes! Sorrento is just 3 miles away.

The main beach is La Gavitella and there’s also smaller, more picturesque Marina di Praia (known as La Praia to locals) wedged into the cliffs.

Western gateway to the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento rises steeply above the sea on one of the most spectacular points of the Campanian coast. From here it’s a straight shot to Pompeii (by train), or Naples and Capri (high speed ferry). Due to its enchanting position and mild climate, Sorrento has been a favorite resort since Romans times, drawing heavyweights the likes of Agrippa, Augustus, and Antonius. Although it’s a popular tourist destination in summer, Sorrento is a lively city year round, making it an ideal home base for excursions throughout Campania in the off season.

Amalfi  -  [ Matches:  7 Villas and Houses For Rent]

Surrounded by dramatic cliffs, the town of Amalfi lies on the sea at the mouth of the Valle dei Mulini, a deep gorge. The town’s picturesque white houses cascade down the hillside and are connected by alleys festooned with bougainvillea and steep stairways. At the center of town lies iconic Chiesa di S. Andrea, with its sweeping 60-step staircase and Arab-Norman bell tower. Piazza del Duomo is the town’s hub, dotted with sidewalk cafés and elegant shops. A maritime republic the likes of Pisa, Venice and Genoa since the 9th century, Amalfi remains a busy hub, plying regular routes to Capri, Sorrento and Naples.

Ravello  -  [ Matches:  5 Villas and Houses For Rent]

Located three miles above Amalfi up a winding mountain road, Ravello has long been a magnet. Richard Wagner, Greta Garbo, Gore Vidal, D.H. Lawrence and Virginia Woolf all were drawn to this mountaintop perch to relax, escape and create. Ravello is known for its magnificent sea views, beautiful villas (Villa Cimbrone and Villa Rufolo) and annual summer music and arts festival. There is a pretty main piazza surrounded by outdoor cafés—a perfect spot to wile away your vacation hours.

Don’t miss:

  • The downhill walk from Ravello to Atrani. Stairs lead from Ravello down to the small village of Atrani, and from here a tunnel leads to Amalfi (where you can catch a bus back up the hill). The views are spectacular and an ice cold Peroni on the piazza in Atrani never tasted so good. Physical fitness and healthy knees required!
  • A visit to Villa Cimbrone and its gardens. You’d be hard-pressed to find a better view of the coast.
  • An early morning stroll (and coffee) in the historic center of Ravello. Experience the quiet town and its charming cobblestone alleys before the day trippers arrive.
  • Gelato at Baffone Gelateria Artiginale… simply the best on the Amalfi Coast!

Marina del Cantone  -  [ Matches:  4 Villas and Houses For Rent]

The main beach and port just below the hamlet of Nerano, Marina del Cantone offers something for all types of travelers.

At 4 kilometers from Sorrento, quiet Sant’Agnello offers a taste of slow-paced life on the peninsula. There is regular train service (5 minutes) into Sorrento when you’re craving some hustle and bustle and even Napoli (one hour by train) is a manageable day’s trip. Ancient ruins are literally at your fingertips, with Pompeii (30 minutes) and Herculaneum (40 minutes) just short trips away.

Elegant, exclusive Capri is known for its craggy limestone cliffs, dramatic caves, and surrounding reefs. It is particularly famous for the Blue Grotto, a cave in which the water glows a luminescent blue. The island's main towns are Capri and Anacapri. Inhabited since the Paleolithic age when it was still connected to the mainland, Capri was later inhabited by Greeks, and then Romans.

With its magnificent scenery, mild climate, and rich vegetation, Capri is truly a paradise.

Maiori  -  [ Matches:  3 Villas and Houses For Rent]

From Minori, the S.S.163 leads straight to the fishing village of Maiori, once a popular summer playground of the ancient Romans. It’s here on the southern end of the costiera that you’ll find Spiaggia di Maiori, the largest beach on the Amalfi Coast. Nearby Erchie, a hamlet of Maiori, also has a lovely beach (a UNESCO World Heritage site) flanked by ancient towers. Above Maiori lies the Castello di San Nicola de Thoro-Plano, a Norman fortification. It’s accessible on foot and offers beautiful views; steps wind up through neighborhoods and lemon groves.

A short drive from Amalfi, Atrani is a tiny, quiet fishing village sandwiched between cliffs. It has a charming main square, Piazza Umberto, and narrow, winding streets.

Amalfi is a short walk away and even Ravello, which lies directly above it in the hills, is accessible on foot.

Don’t miss:

  • The climb to Ravello. Stairs lead up from Atrani and the walk, although strenuous, offers fantastic views. Lunch in Ravello is the perfect pay-off and you can catch a bus back down to Amalfi if you’d rather spare your knees the descent.
  • Relaxing with a cold drink on Piazzetta Umberto in Atrani, a hidden gem frequented by locals—not tourists.
  • A visit to Santa Maria Maddalena. The Baroque facade and interiors are a riot of color and the panoramic setting is post card-perfect!

The largest island in the Bay of Naples, Ischia was an active volcano until 1301. The so-called “Green Island” is renowned for its thermal springs. It boasts an array of hotels and spas where you can take the waters, which attract an international crowd from March through November. The island is divided into six communes: Ischia, Casamicciola Terme, Laco Ameno, Forio, Serrara Fontana, and Barano.

There are six distinct hamlets, including Santa Caterina, Campoleone, Campidoglio, Scala, Minuta and Pontone.

Scala itself is quiet and distinctly medieval in feel, with a handful of shops, restaurants and cafes—plus a bus stop to Ravello (10 minute ride). Hiking in the surrounding hills you’ll spot some of the ancient walls that once protected the town and nearby Amalfi, located further down the valley on the sea.
