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.
