Ambita

Header

Ambita is a very charming two-story villa set on a beautiful panoramic terraced garden. Just less than 30 steps down the coastal road, and 1.5 miles from the center of Positano, it was completely restored and restyled in 2017 to combine elegant aesthetics with comfort and modern amenities. Surrounded by timeless olive and lemon trees, the villa embraces a seaside décor that incorporates a soothing white and blue palette, tiles glazed with the typical Mediterranean colors, and beautiful “Neapolitan terracotta” floors which derive their unique salmon hue from the composition of the local clay. Nothing restores your body and warms your soul like sitting on the terrace of Villa Ambita while admiring endless sea views and soaking in the balmy, beautiful sunshine of the Amalfi Coast!

We truly had an amazing time. The villa was everything we wanted it to be and more. The house was truly beautiful and the outdoor entertaining space made it even better. The accommodations were perfect for our group. We had plenty of space and it was so nice to have such a large kitchen with both interior and outside dining. We enjoyed sitting outside and watching the sunrise and sunset and it was so nice to be able to cook at home a bit. I must also say that all of our excursions were wonderful. The drivers were all well informed and were extremely professional and fun. They made sure we learned the history and didn’t miss any of the sights. Your services were fantastic and Joseph was also very responsive and helpful. Thanks for all your assistance and we will definitely keep you in mind for future holidays.

A winding scenic drive along the coastal road, known for its hairpin bends and spectacular views, takes visitors to Positano, Praiano, Amalfi and the spellbinding uphill town of Ravello, with its incomparable belvedere. Any of these popular resort towns along the coast are good bases for exploring the surrounding areas. Buses and ferries run frequently and are the most convenient way to reach other towns while avoiding what could be a challenging drive in the bustling summer traffic. Other excursion possibilities include a boat trip to the islands of Capri and Ischia, a visit to the vibrant cities of Napoli, Salerno, or the gracious Sorrento, or an exploration of Pompeii and Herculaneum - the fascinating ruins of ancient cities destroyed by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in the 1st century A.D.
The Amalfi Coast offers an abundance of cafes, shops, art galleries and restaurants on its vertical terrain. Most beaches are small pebble inlets of land thus the best way to enjoy the sand and the turquoise water is to tour the area by boat (ask our concierge about it!) and let an expert local captain take you to his favorite spots or suggest the best seaside restaurants. A memorable experience!
