I spent several months looking for a perfect location throughout Europe to celebrate my 10th wedding anniversary.
I found the most extraordinary accommodation with the Villa Santa Maria in Amalfi. To be specific I had what is called the junior suite which is a self contained one bedroom villa about 60 metres from the main accommodation wihch is a 7 roomed villa.
A word of warning. Anyone with mobility issues should research the Amalfi coast carefully to find suitable accommodation. The villa is about 150 steps from the main road.
For my wife and I, everything was perfect.
Firstly, a reassuring email from Annalisa prior to our arrival that the room was booked.
When we got to Amalfi Annalisa greeted us with a tour of the villa and services before leading us to our own seperate accommodation. The website does not do this place justice.
We had a large kingsize bed overlooking the sea. The bed was quite high up enhancing the views. Outside is a private terrace which is at least 40 metres long. There are banana trees and grape vines with a small private garden and beyond this our own personal jacuzzi.
To have peace quiet tranquility and solitude in such a busy place as Amalfi is priceless.
Breakfast is served in the main villa and is of a fantastic standard. I could go on and on about how helpful the staff were, including arranging taxis. To top it all on our last day we were leaving early and Annalisa made sure there was bread cheese, yoghurt and other treats to send us on our way.
This place is an absolute must for anyone craving beautiful views, a great room, wonderful service and privacy and I find it impossible to believe there is anywhere better to stay anywhere along the Amalfi coast. We would most definitely return.
