This charming villa is located in one of the most beautiful and panoramic areas along the Amalfi Coast.  It is conveniently located between the two historical towns of Amalfi and Ravello, in a private and exclusive position, making it a great starting point for easy day trips to all the tourist points of interest of the Amalfi and Sorrento Coasts as well as Naples, Mount Vesuvius, Pompeii, Herculaneum, Paestum, and the Islands of Capri and Ischia.

 

The pool situated on the upper (first) floor of the villa and the five different levels of large terraces and gardens face the sun and the sea.  Every angle of the property allows you to admire the beautiful Lattari mountains, verdant with cultivations of lemons, which steeply plunge into the sea and enclose the narrow valleys of the villages of Minori and Maiori, the picturesque inlet of the coast, visible up to Capo D’Orso, and last but not least, the wide and splendid view of the Mediterranean sea.

 

Its terraces are decorated with jars filled with flowers, some sun-drenched and others shaded by pergolas, trees, or awnings.  The interiors are luminous, welcoming and, tastefully and elegantly furnished in a bright Mediterranean style.

Entrance to the two-story property is from the main road along a short private driveway.

 

Ground Floor: 19 steps lead up to the main floor of the villa.  Entrance is into a roomy and large, airy living room, elegantly furnished with green tile floors, large sofas and couches placed all around an open marble fireplace, a large, glass coffee table, and decorated with lots of precious lamps, paintings and ceramic vases.  There is a crystal dining table with a wood base and elegant wood chairs seats 6.  The living room features lots of lamps, large vases & flowerpots, a small corner bar, and panoramic windows with coordinating curtains opening onto a panoramic terrace with spectacular views.  This terrace is equipped with a wrought iron table with ceramic top for 6 and wrought iron chairs.  A second French window opens onto a lateral terrace with great sea views. 

The kitchen can be reached from the living room but also from the terrace, making it easy and pleasant to organize outdoor meals. The kitchen is fully equipped with a dining table for 4-8 people, a 4-range stovetop, dishwasher, microwave, electric oven, refrigerator, and freezer.  The kitchen has a door leading to the terrace situated in a delightful angle, surrounded by pine trees and mature violet bougainvillea. You will find this terrace perfect for outdoor meals, situated in front of the breathtaking seascape. The terrace enjoys a big table for outdoor meals, shaded by awnings.  An elevator is located next to the kitchen.  The elevator goes up to the first floor, where there are a series of bedrooms, and to the large terrace on roof, from where a flight of steps takes you to the pool deck. 

The large, roomy double bedroom situated off a corridor behind the living room on the ground floor boasts a large, queen bed and a separate single bed, Satellite-TV, air conditioning, en-suite facilities with a large shower and 2 French windows opening to the large, panoramic terraces with sea views.  All of the rooms on this floor intertwine with the external terraces & views and offer a good flow, light, and constant breeze.  The entire house, in fact, is very luminous and airy and offers lots of wonderful, uber-panoramic views.

The ground floor also features a laundry room and a full bathroom with modern glass shower cubicle.

First Floor:  Reached either up the indoor, marble staircase (20 steps) or by the internal elevator, the first floor houses 2 double bedrooms and one bedroom with 2 single beds.  The large double bedroom with a large queen bed boasts an en-suite bathroom with a large shower cubicle and hydro-massage tub and access out onto the large, panoramic terrace.  The bedroom enjoys a ceramic table with several chairs, a large mirror, and paintings.  The second double bedroom enjoys a large queen bed, Satellite-TV, and private access out onto the super-panoramic terrace.  The third bedroom, a twin double, also enjoys Satellite-TV, floral curtains, and private access out onto the super-panoramic terrace.  The second and third bedrooms share a bathroom, located in the hall, with a modern glass stall shower.  Each bedroom has its own TV, air conditioning, and French windows opening onto terraces with sea views.
