About the Property

Halfway between Sorrento and Positano,Seaview,Hot-Tub,Concierge,Cooking Vacation

Not a simple Villa rental, but the Work of life!

Our exclusive Villa is located in the heart of the Amalfi Coast, carved into the ancient stone of a magnificent seaside cliff, offering breathtaking views of the Tyrrenian sea and the Li Galli islands, legendary home of the Sirens.

It has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms (plus 2 half baths) and can accommodate up to 8 (7+1) people (2 extra sofa-beds are available and included in the rental rate).
A separate Cottage/Annex can accommodate additional 2 + 2 people (Please ask for more details and pictures).

Its location, exactly halfway between two pearls of the Amalfi Coast: Sorrento and Positano (both 4 miles away), allows easy access to the major Amalfi Coast tourist locations and attractions nearby.

I invite you to check-out our Villa’s own Web Site and on line reviews (YOU FIND THE LINK TO OUR VILLA'S WEB SITE BELOW THE 'OWNER INFO', on our VRBO web page, where you see “Links to more information”). Please feel free to call, skype or email me. I'll be glad to answer your questions!


The Villa has three stories and is surrounded by 350 metres of private tropical gardens which extend throughout the whole property. Because it is built along the side of a mountain into the rock, you can choose a variety of different 'platforms' from which to look out at the Sea and where the only voice you will hear is that of the waves.
Richly colored bougainvilleas and sculptural agaves lend an additional air of romance to the Villa’s elongated pathways and garden.

Fully equipped with modern amenities, including 2 gourmet kitchens indoor and out, as well as a sauna, private swimming pool, gym area, terraced bar area, hydro-therapy pool, outdoor wood stove, wood Pizza oven, WiFi internet connection and more, the Villa also maintains an intimate and magical feeling that will surpass all expectations.

I am pleased to inform that our Guests now have the opportunity (on request) to take part in a fun initiative, called 'That's Sapore”: famous chefs from Region Campania, renowned wine experts, artisan producers of the tastiest Italian specialties will be at your disposal, directly at the Villa and nearby. They will make you live an unforgettable gastronomic Experience.

Your Villa is transformed into a luxurious environment in which you can indulge in a week of sublime gourmet dining experiences, wine and cheese tastings, one of a kind dessert tastings and traditional Italian delights. Add to your itinerary personalized shopping and one of a kind tours of the surrounding area and you have the perfect formula for the most memorable vacation experience of a lifetime.

I personally take care of these “Gastronomic Experiences” to share my passion for local Wines & Foods with my Guests. I can send you the slides with details. Please ask.

 

Owner info

About the owner: Hi! First of all, thank you for spending some of your time to take a look at this very unusual “Villa” … a place where man's tenacity has rendered possible that which seemed impossible. My name is Vincenzo and I own and manage this very unique “Villa”, a result of a work of life, the culmination of 30 years of my parents’ great efforts, imagination and, above all, love! I enjoy sharing my passion and deep knowledge about local Foods and Wines with my Guests. So, I began to offer very exclusive 'Culinary Experiences' to my Villa's Guests ... And now I own and manage a 'Food & Wine Concierge' Company to allow people to discover the Amalfi Coast through Food & Wine Excellence. My goal is sharing the uniqueness of this “Cliff Villa” with people who are able to understand the “Essence” of a place which maybe (I hope) will change something in their life (as my repeat Guests tell me every year). Can’t wait to meet you!

Why the Owner Chose Piano di Sorrento NA, Italy:
Everything started with a bizarre present given by my grandfather to my father to congratulate him on becoming a doctor of medicine in 1969: a long, narrow path cut out from the rocks falling sheer down to the sea. A path where peasants used to take advantage of the constant exposure to the sun, and the natural protection from the wind and rain provided by the mountains to dry out figs on wooden pallets. Well, my father had a vision the first time he saw this stretch of cliff: building a Villa embedded into the rock, in perfect harmony with its surroundings, thanks to his innate passion for Architecture. The idea was to create a dream, to make something magnificent rise up from nothing. Building work soon started and my father joined forces with a team of just 3 workers who don’t shy away from even the riskiest of tasks to follow the guidelines of such a bold venture. They devoted half of their life to follow my father to his crazy adventure! No resource was spared in the completion of this creation, the final version of which produced a genuine “architectural gem” set in the rocks. It has become a quite unique, a private place far from prying eyes, a favored refuge for many leading figures from the world of culture and art, on the look out for an exclusive place of total tranquility, offering top class comfort, while at the same time, surrounded by uncontaminated, wild nature.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
You will have the chance to vacation inside a seaside cliff, between heaven and earth… The privacy of a secluded property, Italian charm, and the incredible sea views from its terraces represent the main elements of this earthly paradise. When you are into the Villa you’ll forget anything and you’ll have the sensation to be in a dream world. But, at the same time, you are in the heart of the Amalfi Coast (few minutes away from all the major tourist attractions). Thanks to our personalized full service Concierge and our “Culinary Experiences” you have the chance to experience both the Villa and the Amalfi Coast in the best way, thru local Food & Wine Excellence.
