Luxury Villa Rentals
Characterized by its vertical cliffs high above the Tyrrhenian Sea, Italy’s stunning Amalfi Coast is located just south of Naples on the country’s western shore. The region, which is a popular vacation spot for locals and international tourists alike, is made up of 13 villages, each with their own special charms, and all with spectacular ocean views.
During your stay in an Amalfi Coast villa, you’ll be perfectly situated to explore the highlights of the region—from beaches and grottos to castles and cathedrals. And almost everywhere you go, you’ll find tantalizing sweet lemons, lemonade and limoncello, the famous liqueur created in Sorrento. This popular city is also home to ancient architecture and plenty of fine restaurants. Seafood is a specialty here and all along the Amalfi Coast in more intimate places like the fishing village of Cetara. Nearby, see the birthplace of pizza in the storied metropolis of Naples or marvel at the dramatic ruins of Pompeii. For a blend of R&R and adventure, tour the vineyards of Tramonti or take day trips to the islands of Ischia and Capri for volcanic hot springs and sizzling art scenes.
As for shopping on the Amalfi Coast, you’ll love the handmade fashions of Positano, where you can get sandals and clothing made for you while you wait. Ceramics are also popular souvenirs, with Positano and Vietri Sul Mare having the most selection. And the paper museum in the village of Amalfi showcases yet another regional handicraft. Indeed, there’s something unique around every twist and turn—and once you see the Amalfi Coast’s winding mountain roads, you’ll know that’s saying a lot. Stay at one of these private Amalfi Coast villas and you’ll be in the center of it all.
