Destination guide

Escape to the stunning Amalfi Coast with local holiday lets

From soaring sea cliffs to seductive towns and villages, the Amalfi Coast is one of Italy's most captivating destinations. It's perched on the Sorrentine Peninsula and lures travellers with ravishing beaches and a picture postcard-perfect landscape of terraced vineyards, lush citrus groves and pastel-coloured houses cascading down the cliffsides. In fact, the Amalfi Coast is so picturesque that it's been crowned a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Planning a getaway to the Amalfi Coast? From oceanfront apartments and luxury villas, to romantic chateaux and rustic farmhouses, Amalfi Coast holiday rentals promise a unique stay in this ravishing slice of Italy.

Outdoor activities

Coastal hikes from your Amalfi Coast holiday let

The Amalfi Coast is one of Italy's premier hiking destinations, with a myriad of well-marked trails to explore. Sentiero degli Dei, also known as the "Footpath of the Gods", is an impossibly scenic trail linking a pair of tiny hilltop towns. After a day on your feet, enjoy local Campania wine and limoncello on the terrace of your Amalfi Coast holiday home.


Beach-hopping on the Amalfi Coast with holiday rentals

The Amalfi Coast boasts some of Italy's best beaches, with a myriad of turquoise-coloured bays and secluded coves to choose from. Marina Grande, backed by brightly painted houses, is one of the region's most popular places to swim and sunbathe. Marina di Praia is another favourite, fringed by crushed-shell sand and crystalline water. Why not make the most of the Amalfi Coast's sparkling seascapes, with holiday rentals overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea?

How to get around

Getting around the Amalfi Coast from your villa rental

As they're laced with cobbled streets and stone staircases, most towns on the Amalfi Coast are best explored on foot. Sorrento is considered a gateway to the Amalfi Coast, offering plenty of bus and shuttle connections. Wondering where to stay? Positano is a favourite with luxury travellers, while Sorrento is dotted with elegant piazzas and palatial buildings. Villa rentals in the mountaintop town of Ravello are ideal for honeymoons and romantic getaways.

Food & drink 

Bite into Campania cuisine on the Amalfi Coast

Between towns like Sorrento, Positano, Minori and Massa, the Amalfi Coast treats gourmands to some of Italy's top restaurants. Save your appetite for regional specialties, like Neapolitan pizza, clam spaghetti and buffalo mozzarella. Seafood is a staple on the Amalfi Coast, with fishermen hauling in shrimp, bream, octopus and sea urchins from the Tyrhennian Sea. Don't leave without trying scialatelli, a linguine-like pasta that originated on the Alalfi coast – it's delicious served in a rich seafood sauce. While wining and dining on the Amalfi Coast is a treat, self-contained holiday rentals are a great excuse to stock up on local produce and prepare your own Campania-style cuisine.
