Maiori villa description


Villa Don Parafan is a characteristic ancient watch tower built sheer above the sea and with direct access to the sea. It sleeps ten people. From Villa Don Parafan you will enjoy a breathtaking view of the sea and of the coast of Amalfi. Villa Don Parafan is 400 square meters (4300 square feet). It features a private swimming pool, direct access to the sea, wide private terraces with a view of the sea, a private garden, air conditioning (please read description below to check in which rooms the units are installed), winter heating and WI-FI Internet access.
You will be roughly 2 km (1.2 miles) from Maiori, where you will find restaurants, shops, the beach and the tourist port. You will find the stop for the SITA bus Amalfi - Salerno line at 100 meters (330 feet). You will reach Villa Don Parafan from the parking area going down a short private walkway that cuts through the garden and includes approximately 230 stairway steps.
For a succesful stay at Villa Don Parafan we recommend having a car. You will be able to park it inside the entrance gate.


Villa Don Parafan is a large property situated approximately 2 km (1.2 miles) from the town of Maiori. It stands in a splendid panoramic spot, between the coastal road and the Mediterranean sea.


The property is made unique by an ancient Saracen tower, built in the XVI century. In ancient times pirate crews would scour the Amalfi coastline. The purpose of the tower was to alert the locals when a pirate sail would become visible at the horizon. The tower has been restored, keeping its character intact, and turned into an exclusive holiday mansion.


Staying at Villa Don Parafan you will be able to enter the sea directly at the property, thanks to a concrete platform that you will find at the foot of the cliff, as well as use the heated swimming pool, open all year round (additional cost may apply for heating the pool).


If you are considering Villa Don Parafan for your vacation, you should know that this villa has many stairway steps to negotiate. The property stretches from the coastal road all the way down to the water, and the cliff is rather steep.  The pathways and the stairways that allow you to move around the grounds cut through a tract of uncommonly beautiful Mediterranean shrubs, with breathtaking views, but we can not recommend this villa if someone in your group is not able to handle the stairway steps. 


The rooms are located in two buildings:  the medieval tower and the annex. From the entrance gate you will reach the annex descending approximately 115 stairway steps.  The swimming pool is close by the annex. From the annex you will reach the medieval tower descending approximately 110 steps (for a total of 225 from the entrance gate).  From the medieval tower you will reach the Jacuzzi pool along a walkway which includes approximately 55 stairway steps. From the medieval tower you will reach the sea descending approximately 223 stairway steps (for a total of approximately 448 from the entrance gate, or approximately 333 from the annex).


Please note: when booking Villa Don Parafan you will have access to each of the nine bedrooms/eight bathrooms available at the villa, for a maximum occupancy of 10 guests .  If there are more than 10 people in your party please book: Villa Don Parafan Grande in Maiori, for a party of more than 10 guests.
