Booked this through Venere, and specified the room we wanted in this villa complex situated 15-20 min (walking) from Amalfi... Like all the coastal properties its perched precariously above the cliffs with incredible views Room 102 is a corner room, with views from a 2 sided balcony to die for. We enjoyed the walk (uphill on return from Amalfi) so if you dont , look elsewhere, or endeavour to work out the local bus system , which never seems to run to schedule ( like most things in Italy)
HINT = if arriving in Salerno on a Sunday ,and looking for a bus transfer to the Amalfi coast, try and pre book bus tickets , as everything closes down from 12. We ended up sharing a cab with another couple but still paying $70 per couple to get here. The bus drivers couldnt give a damn , no ticket no ride. !!
Back to the villa, there are about 15 rooms, not all with balconies like ours. Spacious bathrooms, big bedrooms, good Wi-Fi connection. Crisp linen on good beds, and overall quite modern . A good 4 star property .Air con works well; Parking on site will cost , but its available. Driving is not for the feint hearted, so be warned.
Delightful staff, for ever helpful, breakfast was included, and by Italian standards , was excellent. ( great coffee, Latte style)
We did 3 nights, lots of good restaurants down in Amalfi, the trip to Ravello was worth it , (with a 90 minute walk back down to Amalfi. Capri, on another day, dissapointing and over rated. A morning trip to Positano was fun, .
Can reccomend Villa Maria highly. We loved it.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Villa Maria Luigia, belonging to the Amendola family, is the result of a careful and refined renovation of an elegant villa dating back to the 900's. The villa, with its wonderful views, is situated just over than 1km from the center of Amalfi, away from the chaotic Piazza Duomo. Its position allows you to reach the historic centre quickly but offers peace and quiet when you want to relax. And it is with the same elegance, cordiality and experience and a touch of sobriety and Mediterranean modernity that "Villa Maria Luigia" is launched as the ideal destination for those wanting to stay in Divine Amalfi and to be pampered surrounded by comfort and cordiality. Admire the unique views of the Amalfi Coast and Cilentana with the giddy sensation of being suspended between the sky and the sea. ... more less
