About the property

Villa, 6 Bedrooms + 7 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14), PARKING indoor

VILLA AMALIA is situated in the town of Cava de’ Tirreni 23 miles from international airport of Naples and 10 Miles from Salerno airport .

Here in Cava you are surrounded by a green country-side and the nearly sea. The bright green of its valley was very much admired by the Romans who founded here a summer residence built by the Metello’s family.

The old Villa Amalia is located in a privileged position on the Amalfi Coast in the most typical and charming hamlet of the town called “Rotolo” has a wonderful balcony overlooking the most charming Italian sea. The name “Rotolo”comes from the idea of the sun that “rolls” over the hamlet from dawn to setting .

The wide and romantic view on the Amalfi Coast, its pleasant microclimate, attracted, in pre-Renaissance time, the Neapolitan aristocracy that built the most representative summer villas in this hamlet You can reach the villa from town by a half mile lay road that winds up over looking an emerald sea and the Lattari mountain’s peaks under a row of secular plan-trees.Villa Amalia is built on three levels for one total internal surface of meters square 600.

On the ground floor to which you can access from the municipal road there are: a wide entrance, a drawing-room-study with rear antique wine cellar and a play room with a billiard and flippers.

A marble staircase leads up to the first floor or, through the villa’s park, where you can park 3 cars; it has a bedroom with access to the swimming pool, the main hall in Rose Portuguese marble and a Crystalline of Greece made precious by zecchino gold putties; a characteristic bath made in baked, brass and porcelain, a wide kitchen furnished with ceramics and wood massello, with annexed bath and larder, all enriched by a great fireplace.

From the inside, thanks to a wide suspended staircase, in the main central hall, you reach the second floor, or from the upper terraces served by an arc staircase, that soars high above the swimming pool. The second floor has four bedrooms furnished in 18 century style, complete of four inner baths and two large terraces with a fantastic sight on the Amalfi coast.

The external spaces of Villa Amalia offers guests an atmosphere of unique beauty.

The paths are paved with light grey marble and in the park you can admire a variety of century old exotic cicas trees offering a riot of colours and smells. The water of the large swimming-pool has the colour of the sea because it is wholly made of white marble.

Villa Amalia rooms have got wooden arch doors and the walls are warm and bright coloured with 17th century old stuccos. In the hall there are a variety of 17th century old frames finely decorated with pure gold leaves. These precious details with 17th century old pieces of furniture, the lighting mainly consisting of old candelabra, the precious 17th century old paintings make “Villa Amalia” a unique tourist structure which can be their ideal accommodation for the most demanding guests.

In Villa Amalia, while breathing the breeze of the sea, you feel as having left at home all anxieties and finding yourself in a silent comfortable and timeless atmosphere where everything seems to belong to a fantastic dream.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We would definitely recommend this property , very nice and very relaxing .

We spent a week in August with 3 families and we all appreciated our stay .

We had some very nice experiences (and all was very easy to do from the

Villa):rent a boat to discover the marvellous Amalfitan coast and Capri (one

day/ each visit), go to Pompei , go for shopping in Cava, have dinners in

some goods restaurants in Vietri and Cava with pizza ,pastas and fish not

expensive at all !Also we can talk about the hospital accomodation which was

very good (one of our child had problem with his ears and we went to the

hospital which is not far away from the Villa). Special thanks to Antonio

and Carlo for the welcome and also to Christian who was very helpful during

all the week ,working hard to make our stay very pleasant. Rachel Rennes

Fabulous Villa Amalia!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week at Villa Amalia and we couldn't be happier!

The villa is absolutely beautiful, situated up in the hills over looking the Amalfi Coast.

The town of Cava de Tirreni is stunning, just a short drive from the villa and not in the guide books, so it's not too touristy which is a real bonus!

11 of us went and all had a fabulous time. We have no complaints and intend to visit again!

Great Italian Holiday

  • 4 of 5

Great villa in a brilliant location for the rest of the Amalfi Coast. Very warm welcome received from Antonio and his family which was marked by a welcome package as well as an Italian home cooked meal on Day 2!Antonio was an excellent host and despite all our questions, he was quite happy to accommodate us.Kids did not want to leave the pool and we only wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy all the amenities! Villa is in a great location as a base to enjoy day trips to

Amalfi & Capri. Highly recommend this villa. Grazie Antonio

Beautiful villa on Amalfi coast

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful vacation in Villa Amalia. The villa is lovely and pool was very refreshing. Everything was in great condition. Antonio was gracious and helpful.

We loved the village of Cava de Tirreni. The people were friendly and there were plenty of restaurants and cute shops.

What a Wonderful Villa!

  • 5 of 5

This has been a trip that our family has dreamed about for years. Professor Antonio is a most gracious and accommodating host. From the moment that we stepped into the villa we were awed by the beauty of the grounds and home. Each room expresses a style that is meant for comfort and reflects a warmth that invites you to stay. Antonio has taken us to many places that are not tourist attractions, that have given us a chance to interact with the Italian people. James, the gardener, has always greeted us with a smile and a helping hand. James has also been very instrumental in being our communication link to Antonio and others. We are all glad that we have had the chance to get to know him.

Our family chose to have a meal prepared by Mr. Luciano. There are not enough words to describe the culinary experience of this wonderful dinner. Antonio purchased fresh ingredients from the market that were expertly prepared. From antipasto to dessert there was not one complaint from our family of 9.

We would highly recommend staying at Villa Amalia and if given the chance we would come back.

Historical villa well maintained

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Villa Amalia very, very much! Our family wanted to stay at a place that was "off the beaten path" and the Villa Amalia was just that. I wanted my grand children to experience the genuine Italian culture and that they did: walking to the bakery just a short distance from the Villa and observing the baker make chocolate croissants, purchasing warm bread from the little store right across from the Villa, and walking to the train station when the buses were on strike.

The Villa Amalia was fantastic! Everyone loved the pool. It was absolutely gorgeous and well maintained. The rooms were beautifully furnished and most inviting. Our family of 11 always felt we had our own personal space but at the same time afforded us many opportunities to socialize together.

Antonio, Paul, and Amalia were always most helpful, accommodating, and eager to please. Amalia's gnocchi and sausage were a real treat!

I would highly recommend the Villa Amalia to anyone desiring a vacation on the Amalfi coast. It was so well situated for day trips but at the same time provided many excellent opportunities for activities right at the villa.

Thank you so much for a truly memorable vacation! We'll be back!

My wife and two other couples stayed at the villa for two weeks in Sept. '11 and had a wonderful vacation. The location is fantastic for all the areas we wished to cover. The villa is spacious, clean and airy. The beds were firm and comfortable. The owner is a gracious host who wants his guests to be relaxed and happy. There were a couple of hiccups in the kitchen but he was immediately on the problem and worked to resolve the situation. He is fluent in French, as well as Italian, which helped greatly. The villa can easily accomodate four couples, each with a private bath and a 1/2 bath on the main floor. A very memorable vacation.
