Overview

About the property

7 Bedrooms, 7.0 Bathrooms, 14 Sleeps

Few villas bring you closer to the Amalfi coastline than the remarkable Villa Simona, perched just 200 stone steps above the rocky shore, and less than one mile from the town of Amalfi. Pairing all the comforts of urban living with a natural setting and spa-like amenities, this modern seven-bedroom property is ideal for groups of up to 14 guests.

Designed to take full advantage of its dramatic cliffside location, Villa Simona features a series of terraces, where guests can enjoy the loggia, jetted tub, sauna, and a private pebbled beach. Leading down to the water, the stone steps seem as much a part of the natural landscape as the rugged cliffs and fragrant Mediterranean greenery.

In sharp contrast to the wild beauty outdoors, Villa Simonas interiors are sleek and modern, decorated in white and black with contemporary furnishings. Moroccan style lanterns and colorful accents add warmth to the sophisticated surroundings. The open plan living/dining room offers fabulous sea views, with a fully equipped kitchen and a well-stocked cocktail bar.

Four en-suite bedrooms are located on the upper level of the main house, one with a jetted bathtub. Downstairs, a fifth bedroom benefits from its own private entrance. The annex is located just a few steps from the main entrance, and houses two more suites with private entrances. All of the bedrooms are comfortably equipped with air conditioning, mini bar, satellite TV and high-speed internet connection.

This part of Italy is famed for its seafood, and Villa Simona is just a short, free water taxi away from local beach-side restaurants. Roadside parking is available just outside Villa Simona, and paid indoor parking can be found in Amalfi. Enjoy the best the Amalfi Coast has to offer from this peaceful coastal setting, within easy reach of charming towns; its a five minute drive to Amalfis town center, while beautiful Positano is less than a half hour way.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Special Characteristics:

A stay at Simona combines the modern amenities of city living with the windswept cliffs and craggy coastline reminiscent of Wuthering Heights. The panoramic views, whether inside or outside the villa, are incomparable to most. Hop a free water taxi to local restaurants along a nearby beach.

What to do along the Amalfi Coast:

In addition to lovely beaches, Positano offers an abundance of cafes, shops, art galleries and restaurants. A scenic drive along the coastal road (SS145) takes visitors to Praiano, Amalfi and the spellbinding up-hill town of Ravello, with its incomparable belvedere. Other excursion possibilities include a boat trip to the islands, a visit to vibrant Napoli or Salerno, or an exploration of Pompeii and Herculaneumthe fascinating ruins of ancient cities destroyed by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in the 1st century A.D.

Great weather, good location, helpful staff, great views = success

  • 4 of 5

Villa was largely as advertised. Did not have outdoor gym nor outdoor barbecue as indicated- which was disappointing. Other than that, it was as expected ,great views, helpful staff,commercial grade kitchen etc. Plenty of steps both down from road to villa and then to sea and boat pick up which keeps you fit. Probably a 30 -40 min walk into town so grocery shopping often involved 30+ Euro taxi ride back. Bus stop just near villa but bus was often full and did not stop to pick up and additional 3-4 people. We were only successful once and that was with just 2 so need to leave earlier in the morning to avoid the bus crowds Availability to arrange for boat pick up to local restaurants a nice plus and we also used this for our day boat trip to Capri. Lots of different things going on in July and villa manager, Luisa, was very helpful in explaining these and booking same. Views were excellent and continuous boat traffic always interesting. Very enjoyable two weeks.

It was absolutely spectular.

  • 5 of 5

We felt very invited and comfortable the second we moved in. It felt like home.

The only problem we had was when our concierge sent a unpleasant note regarding canceling our drivers to DaAdolfo in Positano. We had no choice as their was a wicked thunderstorm going thru the region all day. As we were planing on spending the day on the beach and traveling by boat to get there it was not an option. My family's safety is first. Also are vehicle was damaged by the wash out of the hill above it. It was no longer drive able . Pascal should have asked me why before he sent his message. I was in ITALY he was in Montreal .

A tranquil haven on the dramatic Amalfi Coast

  • 5 of 5

Arriving to the Villa was quite a stressful experience due to the road. However the moment we pulled up at the villa (well at the top of the stairs to be exact) the stress disappeared. Victor was waiting to bring all the bags down and he lead the way. Once we arrived at the villa gates, you are immediately drawn to the spectacular view. The villa manger Annalisa was also waiting to welcome us. She is a lovely young woman with all the charm and warmth one expects from the Italians. She explained clearly how everything worked and was available anytime to assist. The villa itself is well arranged with indoor/outdoor living arrangements. As the weather was so fine, we ate outside. Most of the days spent down by the sea side. The children jumping into the sea from the jetty. We also ventured out by boat on several occasions ( Annalisa arranged these for us) The whole time spent at the villa was relaxing and great fun. We were 2 families with older children and teenagers

fantastic property, beautiful view and great service

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week at Villa Simona. The view from our terrace was breathtaking and the house was modern, clean and well appointed. The home is situated on a cliff, so while the views are great, there are many stairs - both to get up to the street level and also down to the beach/dock. So, we really got our exercise! Those with bad knees or heart problems would likely have a challenging week because it is necessary to climb many stairs a day. We had daily maid service which was really great. There was also boat service that would pick you up and take you to a nearby beach restaurant for lunch or dinner. We took advantage of that several times. It was also an easy Taxi ride to/from Amalfi and the drivers were familiar with the Villa so there were no problems in not having a car. I would definitely recommend NOT having a car here - no place to park and taking a taxi or walking into Amalfi works just great.

The Villa and the local management were fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We had the Villa full, 8 couples. We had a fantastic time. An outstanding meal was prepared by a local chef and we enjoyed it on the patio overlooking the Mediterranean. What a view!! We requested a 20 person tour of Pompeii including a wine tour on short notice, without hesitation Cristina took care of all the details and we had a great day for 20 people. I would highly recommend this Villa to a large group, just be prepared to climb some stairs, but the climb is worth it!!!!
