Once a 16th century fortress, recent restoration has then transformed this building in a luxury accommodation with a terrace,an infinity pool, a beautiful garden and a lemon grove overlooking the Amalfi Coastline.
The villa offers the facilities of a 5 star hotel whilst retaining the privacy of an exclusive location: concierge service, butler, experienced and discreet staff, top class chef, porter, daily change of bed linen, courtesy kit including slippers and minibar in the rooms.
At the entrance you will find a large, fragrant courtyard with lemon trees and shady terraced gardens overlooking the sea. The kitchen, sitting room and dining room are all situated on the ground floor. The kitchen is decorated with Neapolitan majolica tiles, it is full furnished and has a unique wooden table in the centre, which has been lovingly crafted from original wooden fixtures found in the house before the restorations began. The kitchen opens out into the elegant dining room containing a beautiful wooden table and 19th century Neapolitan dresser and the sitting room has an open fireplace and comfortable armchairs for settling down to lengthy after-dinner conversations. The whole of the ground floor is tiled with traditional terracotta.
An unusual, vaulted staircase leads up to the three bedrooms, each with private bathroom, on the first floor. All of the bedrooms are furnished in baroque style and have vaulted ceilings.
The first bedroom is designed with an elegant lower floor sitting area and bathroom while the bedroom itself is on a mezzanine level above. The second room contains 18th century furniture and an antique wrought-iron chandelier covered in gold leaf. The third room has a large upholstered bed, antique furniture and a crystal chandelier. This bedroom also has its own private terrace with sunbathing area.
The terraced gardens all face the sea and are perfect for al fresco dining with the stunning backdrop of the Mediterranean Sea and Amalfi Coastline. There is an infinity swimming pool, an organic vegetable garden, a herb garden and a lemon grove.
The Limonaia Dependance sleeps four people more and its design is inspired by the winter gardens of 18th century castles. The rooms have the same stunning panorama and contain four single beds and a private bathroom.
The Villa is located just minutes away from the centre of the picturesque village, with its pretty houses, shops, restaurants and bars all scattered along the hillside. The Amalfi Coastline has always been a desirable destination of the elite; from the artistic days of the Grand Tour to illustrious visitors such as Escher, Jackie Kennedy and Pablo Neruda. The deep Furore fjord, with its network of steps and hidden beach, is a poignant reminder of the days when fishermen would haul up their catch for the villagers.
