Villa d’Estate is a delightfully appointed villa perched over the sea in a privileged location in Arienzo, an enclave considered the chic side of Positano, which lies about a mile away. The setting is completely private and peaceful with breathtaking views across the bay of Positano and towards Punta Campanella.
The villa is about a mile from Positano, with all its charm and delights, excellent restaurants, elegant shops, cafes and sandy beaches. From the main coast road, a winding staircase of 130 steps leads to a spectacular garden terrace with flowering potted plants, trees, statuary, and bronze wall sculptures. Furnished with a covered dining area with marble top iron dining tables and sun chairs, the terrace forms an outdoor dining room of its own where you will undoubtedly greet the morning and conclude the day while enjoying the sea views.
The public pebble beach at Arienzo (little used outside July and August) is a further 120 steps down from the villa itself, but for the less energetic a beautiful pool of 10 x 5 meters occupies the far corner of the terrace. There is a bathroom with shower in the pool area.
Distances: Bus stop for Positano/Amalfi/Sorrento about 20 meters, Positano 1 mile, Amalfi 9.3 miles, Ravello 13 miles, Sorrento 15.5 miles, Pompeii 34 miles, Naples (Capodichino airport) 43 miles, Rome (Fiumicino airport) 205 miles.
