Amalfi Coast Villas

Technically, Amalfi may just be just a 30 mile stretch of coastline that curves around the Sorrentine Peninsula but yard for yard it is one of the most exquisitely and dramatically picturesque destinations in the world. The full Amalfi experience starts when you either drive the stunning route to Sorrento or do as the ancient Romans did and make the journey by boat.

Ensure someone else is steering though as you will want to drink in the glittering blue views that stretch westwards from the clifftop roadways that curve tantalisingly along your route.  Around every bend, yet another even more divine image emerges - patchworks of vineyards and citrus orchards interweave around pastel coloured hilltop villages.

Each scene is a photographer’s dream.  As you enter the gateway to Amalfi, the resort town of Sorrento, you will already be seduced by the magical allure of Amalfi.


How to best enjoy Amalfi

It may appear that Amalfi is somewhere you could drive around in a short day while incorporating a longish lunch during your visit.  This is definitely not the case.  The network of little roads that criss-cross through this small peninsula, the range of fabulously exciting activities (on and off the water) not to mention divine restaurants to experience means that there are weeks of unique memories to be made.  You should really find a luxurious nest for you and your family among some of the stylish Amalfi coast villas that are dotted throughout this corner of heaven.

Any of the Amalfi coast vacation rentals represented by Exceptional Villas meet our exacting standards.  Location is of primary consideration coupled with luxury and style.

A divine villa, overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea, where you can watch magnificent sunsets each evening or perhaps a sublime villa perched above the endlessly glamorous town that is Positano that captures the mystical isle of Capri in the distance.  There are many amazing Italian villas for rent Amalfi coast that will meet your requirements.

From your ideal villa base, you can embark each day on mini-expeditions.  A day of sailing along the coastline, visiting chic Capri, dropping in at the town of Amalfi, swimming, fishing – the views from the water are just exquisite.

Each of the little villages and towns that spill down the sheer cliffs along with the coastline change from gold to pink to yellow as the sun moves in a steady arc across the sky.

There’s been very little change to these timeless villages.  Family-run restaurants and bars sit side by side with designer boutiques and quaint Italian homes.

All generations gather each evening to weave through the narrow village streets enjoying that traditional stroll before dinner where news and pleasantries are exchanged.


Path of the Gods

If you are enthusiastic about hiking, then the Sentiero degli Dei (Path of the Gods) is a clifftop walk that will take you from Bomerano to Nocelle with an opportunity to drop in on Positano.

The main pathway covering a distance of about 4 miles is suitable for anyone with a reasonable level of fitness.  Prepare to be stunned by the peacefulness of this walk as well as dramatic views.


Food

From the Path of the Gods to the food of the gods.  The simplicity of traditional Italian cuisine has given way to a more sophisticated offering.

If you want to experience high-end dining, there are many award-winning restaurants to be found.  Don Alfonso 1890’s two Michelin stars is certainly worth looking at if you are a food enthusiast.

Il Buco in Sorrento sees the best elements of Campanian cuisine artistically presented.

If you prefer your food and prices more down to earth, there are handmade pasta dishes and plates that include the best of local fare – especially the creamy buffalo mozzarella.

Magnifico!


Gardens

Luscious growing conditions have allowed spectacular gardens to be developed at some of the large palaces and villas across Amalfi.

The Villa Rufolo in Ravello is at the top of the list for any gardening enthusiast who has decided to visit the gardens of Italy.

Whether you can tell a hosta from a zinnia, the colour, scent and design of this glorious garden, with a bird’s eye view over the coast, is a must-see.


Romance

For decades, Amalfi has been the European destination of choice for honeymooners.  It’s easy to see why – the relaxed tempo of a hand-in-hand stroll through Positano, Sorrento or Ravello, lazy afternoons on the beach, long, star-filled dinners on restaurant terraces high above the sea, are all designed to create the perfect conditions for happy-ever-afters.

Even if your nuptials are something of a distant memory, a day trip around Capri on a scooter or a swim in the Blue Grotto might recapture some of that early romance.

At Exceptional Villas, we can guide you to the best of the villas Amalfi Coast that will ideally suit your group’s needs.

A private pool, access to the beach, seclusion, staff … once we understand how you wish to vacation, we can introduce you to the perfect property that will become your Italian refuge while you explore the perfection of Amalfi.


History

From Roman emperors who vacationed on Capri (think Tiberius) to invading Greeks and Normans, the archaeological footprints of so many eras are stamped throughout this region.  Incredible ruins, magnificent cathedrals and churches still tell the story of those who once passed through this peninsula.

And more recently … if you look to the last 50 years, it’s the whose-who of high-end celebrity who have yachted and resided along the coastline.

… oh, and Pompeii.

At a short drive from any of our luxury villas, Amalfi coast is the world-famous archaeological marvel that is Pompeii and its neighbouring site of Herculaneum.  This is a full day of extraordinary exploration for the whole family — literally a city frozen in time by the eruption of the nearby Mt Vesuvius.
