About the Property

6 bedrooms,10-11 sleeps, 1 bathroom with tab and 4 bathrooms with shower

Modern comforts in the exclusive charme of a period villa with breathtaking views, swimming pool, gardens, terraces and spacious garage.


“PORTA DONICA”, nestled on the beautiful Amalfi Coast, is an elegant private villa which blends the magic atmospheres of the lovingly preserved ancient structure with all the amenities of a modern renovation. Relax by the swimming pool, the ancient belvedere, the plentiful lemon trees and enjoy the efficient lodging and open air reception facilities.


Origins: Origins: the current villa rose in the early 20th century around the ancient tower dating back to the 11th century. This tower, opening the way to the flight of steps that to this day leads with a ten minute walk to the Duomo, was the main gateway to the then flourishing city of Ravello. It was Porta Dominica and its name underwent successive alterations first changing to Porta Domnica and finally to Porta Donica, eventually lending its name to the flight of stairs and the entire district. This historically rich landmark is now conveniently accessible by road and is halfway between the contemporary beauty of the newly constructed auditorium (a design donated to the city by Oscar Neimeyer) and the famous SS. Cosma e Damiano sanctuary.

The Villa: The villa: from the road you access the property through the garage (which houses up to 3 cars) and make your way to the higher floors either by taking advantage of the internal elevator, or by climbing the indoor stairs framed by the scenographic backdrop of the exposed rock formations that constitute the building’s foundation. The unique architectural structure of the villa houses 5 bedrooms (for a total capacity of 10 individuals), each with its own independent bathroom, a great living room with a large fireplace, an elegant colonnade patio, steeping agricultural terraces and outdoor dining area with verandas and well equipped indoor and outdoor kitchen areas. Other convenience features include central heating, air conditioning, telephone land line, satellite TV, and Wi-Fi DSL connectivity.

Outdoors: as convenient as the indoor quarters are, you will mostly enjoy the elegance and relax of open air living by the garden and dining areas overlooking the outdoor swimming pool and the breathtaking view of the coast. A small kitchen, BBQ, pizza oven and toilette serve the area and the lawns, terraces and walkways shaded by lemon trees offer variety and privacy. The orchard will delight you with fresh salad, vegetables and fruit.

Events: the structure is well equipped with ideal areas to host private banquets and receptions. Both of the owners’ sons tested and perfected these facilities by hosting their wedding receptions in the villa.

Rent: the villa is available for rent on a weekly basis to private clients, either families or small groups of friends.
