Location and special feature:
Noticing our amazement upon entering her apartment, Signora Lina, the friendly owner, told us about the history of its extraordinary architecture. The famous Italian architect Paolo Soleri, founder of the Arcology movement, planned the apartment as the image of a ship which seems to float above the sea.
Recently modernized Villa Serena was built in the 1950s, supervised by Soleri. At the time, the waters still crashed against the rocks directly below the apartment and the sandy beach of Marina di Vietri was not yet there.
Even today, the sight you meet with beyond the large panorama windows, still gives you the feeling of living right on the sea.
Villa Serena is located on the 1st floor of a house facing the sea and built on a terraced slope. From the parking lot somewhat above, you need only descend a few steps to get to your apartment.
Vietri sul Mare is an ideal starting point to explore the charming area of the Amalfi coast, but at the same time enjoy a wonderful beach holiday away from the hustle and bustle.
Right from your terrace and via a stepped path you can reach the sandy beach of Marina di Vietri with restaurants, bars and shopping facilities.
Experience a „cheerful“ holiday at the seaside at artfully furnished Villa Serena and feel the charm of the picturesque Costiera Amalfitana taking hold of you!
Adorned with Vietri tiles and elements of lava stone, the apartment displays a fascinating interior.
Villa Serena includes a sea view double bedroom with en suite bathroom, the latter equipped with bathtub, WC/bidet.
From the bathroom you have also got a fantastic view of the sea.
Furthermore, there is a second double bedroom as well as a second bathroom with masonry shower and WC/bidet.
The living area in the spacious living-/dining room is furnished with a sofa bed for the 5th and 6th persons, a fireside, a TV, a piano as well as a colorful dining table made of „pietra lavica“ (lava stone).
The eat-in kitchen of Villa Serena is equipped with oven, 4-burner gas stove, refrigerator with freezer compartment and toaster.
The large terrace, partly shaded by an awning, runs the width of the house. Garden furniture, sunbeds and an outdoor barbecue are at your disposal.
At the end of the terrace, there is a small area which the owner has chosen as her favorite spot. It is adorned with statues from Greek mythology and green plants.
A place to linger while the sea lies at your feet!
Villa Serena offers, among others, air conditioning with heating system, fireside, TV, piano, barbecue and washing machine.
You can park your car on a reserved parking space above the apartment.
It is only 300 m from your apartment, via a stepped path, to the sandy beach of Marina di Vietri with restaurants, shopping facilities and bars.
The town of Vietri sul Mare is only 1.5 km off.
Those who wish to avoid driving along the winding coastal road can use the very well organized public transportation system, the Sita-busses.
Only about 50 m from Villa Serena there is a bus stop from where busses depart for Amalfi, Ravello and Positano.
