Positano luxury villa with pool Amalfi - built partly into the steep hillside over three main terraces and boasting unbroken views of the deep blue Mediterranean and colourful little town of Positano, La Scogliera offers the best of everything this location is famous for. With restaurants and shops just a short walk from your door, and the local shingle beach also walkable, La Scogliera is the holiday villa that you will never forget and will want to return to again and again. For pure relaxation in a wonderful environment, you could not ask for more.
There are stunning views of the sea from most rooms, from the terraces and from the pool, so you might not want to stir far. But if you do, you'll be rewarded by all the charms of this much-photographed place, with its buildings clinging to the side of the cliff in picturesque fashion, its narrow winding lanes, smart boutiques, restaurants and cafes. You can take boat trips across to Capri, Ischia and the Grotta di Smeraldo or, if you like walking, why not head along the old coastal pathways above the village, like the Sentiero degli Dei, which also offers wonderful panoramic views of the coastline and sea. The scent of the lemon trees, the ancient olive groves and the vineyards along this stretch of coast will remind you that you are surrounded by the very rich history of southern Italy.
Returning to the villa towards the end of the day, why not take evening drinks on the terrace or by the illuminated pool, overlooking the lights on the hillside and the boats bobbing on the water below - idyllic. At La Scogliera - this Positano Amalfi coast luxury villa with pool - you are perfectly positioned to experience the very best that the Amalfi coast has to offer.
La Scogliera is one of the few villas on the Amalfi coast where you can step out of your front door and walk in to the centre of the village - there's no need to get in the car at all! You can also walk to the beach, the shops and the restaurants, all of which are just a ten minute stroll. There's a wonderful Jacuzzi on the terrace: this is a fantastic place to relax, maybe with a coffee or a glass of wine ... All the bedrooms have their own balcony or terrace overlooking the sea, and each one is attractively furnished in an individual way, with its own colour theme. No timetables or dress code to worry about here, and the staff are always happy to help you with anything you might need. I recommend arriving by boat transfer - what a way to start your holiday!
