Spectacular villa with stunning views. My family, girlfriend and I spent the week here and couldn’t be happier. It was the first time my parents travelled abroad and still talk about the villa and Positano every day. I even got engaged while I was there For the 7 of us the size of the villa was perfect and quickly felt like home. The staff were phenomenal and felt like family.

The best!

Dorata was over the top both figuratively and literally. Our concierge, Chiara, was very helpful with all the nitty gritty details of our van rentals, day to day travel tips and being the go-to regional expert for any questions we may have had. Enzo, our chef, catered to our palates and we were never disappointed in the variety and quality of the meals he prepared. Anna, our housekeeper, was a gem when it came to keeping on top of our laundry and our rooms. What a 5 star team and always with a smile on their faces. They made it a truly memorable week.

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!
