A UNESCO World Heritage Site recognised for its maritime power in the Orient and West in a bygone era. As well as for its astoundingly attractive landscape. Characterised by the shimmering sea and sheer rugged cliffs, mottled with flourishing Mediterranean forestry and quiet villages preserving the land’s history, art and traditions. The main town, Amalfi, is 5km away from the estate. Wedged comfortably between blue waters and mountains and gives guests a comfortable starting point for curious explorers before heading up the heights. Further along, sits Ravello and Positano. At 265M above sea level, Ravello is quaint and quirky, carrying visionary vantage points. Yet, the main attraction lies amongst the sprawling stretches of lemon groves, vineyards and manicured gardens, Villa Cimbrone and Villa Rufolo, growing in profusion. Its alternative name, ‘City of Music’, is aptly suited for its role in hosting music festivals in the Villa Rufolo terrace, the Annunziata Historic Building and Ravello Art Centre each summer. Positano with its steep steps and unrivalled views require no introduction and are sure to dazzle. While Pompei, Sorrento and Capri are also only a stone’s throw away and ideal locations for taking things at your own pace to be in close-contact with nature.
