Fantastic ocean views from all rooms and terraces, elegant and cosy interior

Highlights of this unique villa in the heart of Amalfi coast are breathtaking views from all rooms to the ocean and the coast. 2000 sq. ft living area and 2400 sq. ft offer space to relax and enjoy. The villa is situated just above the ocean in a secluded position but at the same time close to the amenities of Amalfi and Positano. 7 restaurants wait for our guests in the romantic bay of Marina di Praia close by in walking distance.

You can swim in the pool - on the same level as the main terrace - or from the platform (with deck chairs) at the sea.

Furnished as an upscale, cosy Italian family home, decorated with many paintings and sculptures. Air condition in all bed rooms and heating in colder months. A unique corridor carved out of the rock connects all rooms. WLAN, cable TV, CD player.

The large kitchen with sea view is equipped with all you need to prepare excellent meals. A special experience is a multi course Italian meal cooked by our maid in the villa and served outside on the terrace below the stars.

You can swim in the pool - on the same level as the main terrace - or from the platform (with deck chairs) at the sea.

Notes:
The main living/dining room is furnished in the same colourful, eclectic style that characterizes the rest of the house. The two big vases, original oil paintings and ceramic tiles on the floor give you an immediate feeling of being in an Italian home. The antique dining table can accommodate 12 people for a nice meal. For an after dinner drink and a nice talk you may want to sit down in the comfortable sitting area fitted with sofas from Gervasoni - a famous Italian design brand. See and -if windows are open - hear the ocean from your seat. You can also play a round of cards or other games at the game table. Decks of cards and some games like chess, backgammon and others you find in the villa. If you have guests you can use the game table to accommodate more people for a meal. A rest room is adjacent to the social area. In front of the living room is the roofed loggia, which leads to the main terrace.

Fabulous villa with large pool and private access

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic villa in a fabulous position with outstanding views. It was very spacious with plenty of outside eating areas. The pool was large and deep - I couldn't stand up at all so beware if you have small children, but was perfect for diving and getting in some serious lengths. It was well equipped. Walking distance to a number of good restaurants and we had a free boat ride to one further along the coast. The only downside is the drive, very steep and narrow with no space to turn at the end so you either have to reverse in or out. Best to have a small car.

Owner's Response: I am glad you had a good time in our Amalfi home and hope to be able to welcome you again in the not too far future. Take care. PS: if you want to park on our parking platform one or two small cars fit better. A larger car can be parked along side the road close to the entrance to the property.

Italy, party of 6

  • 5 of 5

Spectacular views, convenient location, good wine, supurbe food (thank you Theresa and Alphonso), welcoming locals, comfortable inside and out, - all enjoyed with lifelong friends what more can one can ask for? Booking experience was seamless - Frank was attentive, answered questions promptly and called the house to ensure we were satisfied with the accommodations. Pure perfection. Thank you.

A home from my dreams.

  • 5 of 5

I don't know that I could imagine a more perfect home for a vacation on the Amalfi coast.

I'm honestly afraid to write an honest review, worried it would lead to us being unable to stay again next year. I don't know how it was available in the first place. Fate?

I spent the last week waking up with Nespresso with whipped milk, local ricotta on toast, and lunch and dinner with the best local northern Italian food you've ever had.

We started with a car, four phones, and mild awkwardness between distant family and ended with no car, two phones, 4 books, a deck of cards, and a group of friends and family for life. This home made us let go, have a glass of wine, take in the sun, snorkle until we were sunburned, stay up playing darts, and walking to Paraia to try another dish and bottle at our new favorite restaurant.

The showers were hot, Theresa was pleasant - this is a find.

We plan on coming back very very soon (if Frank will have us). :)

Ciao!

Gracious living

  • 5 of 5

It has been three years since we stayed in this remarkable villa and our time there continues to resonate with each of us as one of the most wonderful trips in our lifetimes.

We were just 50, my mother 75 and our daughters 18 and 12.

Everyone in the area knows the Villa and Frank. All are delighted to extend their best hospitality.

There is the sea, the fisherman, the seafood, the wine, the art, the lemons, the walks. Ok, I may have burnt out the clutch of the rental car on my 106th attempt to back up the driveway, but in all other ways our time was charmed and casually glamorous.

Frank is a kind and caring host, calling us on New Year's Eve to wish us the best. We then watched fantastic fireworks from the terrace in our pajamas and shot proseco corks over into the sea.

We ate delicious meals at the tiny waterside restaurant in Praiano, we shopped in Positano and cooked gorgeous meals for ourselves with the gatherings of the day.

Even now, even tonight, we prefer to eat every meal out of dishes we bought just up the road.

Thank you, Frank. Your beautiful home lives on in our hearts and memories. We wish you and yours all the very best today and every day.

The VERY best on the Amalfi Coast and maybe all of Italy

  • 5 of 5

Three couples, all celebrating our 50th wedding anniversaries spent a delightful week in this magnificent villa perched high above the sea on a secluded cliff. It is impossible to describe all the amenities this home provided: gorgeous views of the sea and nearby Furore, tranquil relaxing moments on one of the three patios, breakfast on the covered porch adjacent to the dining room, easy access to all the coast area for dinner and our daytime adventures. Often we chose to stay in for the evening just to enjoy the beautiful sunsets and watch the sea crash against the rock cliffs. Teresa prepared for us a fabulous fish dinner and we appreciated listening to her nephew read from Dante in Italian. We had traveled to the Amalfi coast twice before, but this home was an experience to never be forgotten. Special memories- and worth every cent.
