Description

Elegant Amalfi Coast villa with sea views - Tucked away on a hillside overlooking the Gulf of Salerno, within walking distance of the beach, shops and restaurants of Vietri sul Mare, this is a splendid period property ideally situated to explore the entire Amalfi Coast with its many fishing villages.

Built in the 18th century and recently renovated to suit refined modern living, Vista sul Golfo's timeless understated elegance is encapsulated in many original features, period furniture, precious original frescoes and ceramic tiles typical of this area. Wake up every morning to picture-postcard views and soak up the beauty of the shimmering Tyrrhenian sea as breakfast is served by the villa's staff in the frescoed dining hall or on the secluded outdoor terrace surrounded by a plethora of brightly coloured trailing geraniums.

A few minutes' walk down a paved winding lane (40 steps) are the shops, restaurants and cafes of Vietri sul Mare as well as the attractive marina and beache. Perched on cliffs plunging down to the sea, Vietri is a truly enchanting place like so many others along the Amalfi Coast but, unlike many others, it has a relatively large, flat beach. Small artisan workshops selling colourful ceramics can be spotted at every corner of these coastal villages and their artefacts would make perfect souvenirs from this region. Due to its unique look, Vietri's porcelain factory has become one of the town's landmarks, together with the striking majolica dome of the church. Within 25 miles of Vietri, along one of Italy's most scenic coastal routes, are the world-famous fishing villages of Maiori, Atrani, Amalfi, Ravello, Praiano and Positano. Boat taxis are an attractive alternative way of viewing them at their best, in all their colours and splendour from the sea.


Insider Tips

“Vietri sul Mare is the first village on the Amalfi coast that you encounter as you come from Salerno, and it is therefore an ideal base from which to explore the entire Amalfi Coast and its unique fishing villages such as Amalfi, Ravello, Positano, Maiori. In high season boat taxis are a particularly good way of travelling from place to place. From here, you can also easily reach Sorrento, the islands in the Gulf of Naples - Capri, Ischia and Procida - and the archaeological sites of Pompei and Paestum. Vietri is a great place for holiday-makers who want a taste of an authentic and lively little town that is not geared exclusively to tourists.”

  • Stunning Villa with views to match

    Jennifer BeVier

    Stayed here last week of July 2016 and it was more beautiful than the pictures! We were a party of 8 and we had the whole house to ourselves. Everyone had there own bedroom and bath which were decorated beautifully and the views were priceless. This villa does include breakfast which was amazing, croissants, various breads, meats, yogurt, fruit and even scrambled eggs for the kids. Carmen was our chef and the kids were a little reluctant on having her, they are use to going out for dinner every night. We were all tired from the days excursions and staying there at night eating on the beautiful patio with those views was a real treat and something we looked forward to every night. Let me tell you she is there secret weapon!!One fantastic meal after another, she did anything we asked and by the end we were asking for things she had already prepared because they were so good, anything from fresh fish, mussels, pasta,chicken, lobster and one of our favorites were fried zucchini blossoms which she stuffed with 2 cheeses and lightly battered and deep fried, they were the bomb!!!!She also did cannolis which were delish and and a chocolate cake with almonds. The villa was close enough for our kids and their friends, ages 24,22,21,21,20,20 that they could walk down into the town and get a drink at the local bars or gelatto. Would have loved to had a pool which was the only down fall but we would definitely stay there again. The house manager was awesome as well I think Paolo was his name and Daniella and another girl were always there tidying up and making sure everything was perfect. It was a trip of a lifetime and would love to go back to Vista Sul Golfo!!!
