About The Experience
This beautiful Amalfi Coast villa sits fortress-like on the side of a hill with views of the sea from three panoramic terraces. This newly renovated villa near Amalfi is perfect for a large family group traveling together. You can cook for yourself, hire a local chef, or dine out in the two restaurants just down the road. And because of this Amalfi holiday villa's position on the mountainside, you can eat all you want and still return home with well-toned calf muscles! Just above the main road from Positano to Amalfi, you have easy access to two of the most charming towns in Italy.
Location Description

Situated along the road leading from Amalfi to Positano and Sorrento, this villa offers tranquility in a very good location. The foot of the steps leading to the villa is right along the main Amalfi Coast road, where there is a bus stop within easy walking distance. Here busses marked SITA can take you to all of the major towns of the Amalfi Coast, including Amalfi and Positano. This villa is also near two well-known restaurants offering local cuisine, one of them right on the other side of the villa's parking area. It is also possible to walk down about 400 steps to the Santa Croce public beach, where there are two more restaurants and umbrellas and chairs for hire. All essential shops such as bars, banks, and post office, are located in Amalfi's town center. Ferries and hydrofoils are available daily in the summer months from Amalfi to Capri, Positano, Sorrento, Naples, Ischia, and Salerno.

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.

Nearby Attractions: Restaurants, Santa Croce public beach, Amalfi (bar, restaurant, post office, ferry connections), Ravello, Positano, Salerno, Sorrento, Pompei, Naples.

Exterior Description
(600 m2) This villa overlooks the beautiful stretch of coastline as far as the Capo d'Orso and the bay of Salerno, including a wide view of the sea and the most picturesque angle of Amalfi, photographed and printed on every postcard! Built on several levels, the original structure dates back to the 12th century, and additions were made in the 16th and 18th centuries. Though it has been completely renovated on the inside, you can still see original vaulted ceilings. The exterior has been beautifully restored, featuring several outdoor terraces. After climbing 110 steps up from the parking area, you reach the ground level terrace, which is a grassy area with tables and chairs. Another flight of exterior stairs leads to the second grassy terrace, which is partially shaded. This area has a lovely outdoor shower in one of the arched alcoves along the stone retaining wall, where water spills out like a waterfall. There is also a private swimming pool (6m x 8m) with a sun deck with loungers, a couch, and chairs. Another flight of stairs takes you finally up to the rooftop, where a sun terrace has amazing views over the entire coastal area and the sea. A gate to this terrace can be closed for extra privacy, as there is another outdoor shower here. Parking for three cars is reserved in a small lot at street level.

Customer Reviews

This villa was a beautiful place to vacation with family on the Amalfi coast. We can't wait to do it again!
Enjoyed Most:
We loved the view and outside dining the best!!
Enjoyed Least:
The villa was a bit isolated and not close to a market.
Surrounding Area:
The surrounding area was stunning! And provided beautiful sunsets!!
Nearby Events or Locales:
Amalfi was the closest town within walking distance, albeit on crazy two-way roads that proved to be intimidating at first, but then we got quite used to it.

Excellent location and a great property that feels very comfortable. The outside areas make this villa as does the view.
Enjoyed Most:
Location was very peaceful, view, pool. The maid and the chef were both excellent.
Enjoyed Least:
Some amenities worked sporadically: air conditioner, washing machine, and hot water were in and out over the course of our week.
Surrounding Area:
Ravello was incredible and our favorite. Amalfi is nice but very crowded and touristy. Positano is a madhouse in the summer and while very picturesque tolerable in only small doses.
Nearby Events or Locales:
No. I wouldn't walk these roads.
Tips or Restaurants:
Too many to mention here but definitely don't plan on doing laundry. There is no dryer.
The property managers were great and always willing to help as was the maid Candida, whom we loved. The owners run the restaurant at the bottom of the stairs where you park so you need to befriend them right off the bat.

Nearby Events or Locales:
Amalfi--yes, about a 20 minute walk.

Everything went very smoothly.
