Villa Poeti is situated in Praiano on the Amalfi Coast. Its location offers the perfect balance for a wonderful, relaxing vacation. One can enjoy the peace of a Mediterranean-style small town villa while being within reach of two of the most beautiful and exciting seaside destinations in Italy (Positano and Amalfi), with shops, sites, cultural events and restaurants.
Villa Poeti enjoys a 180 degree view of the Mediterranean, with the Island of Capri and its world famous faraglioni on the horizon, and the magical town of Positano to the right.
The residence was a 16th century olive oil mill that was completely restored from 2003 to 2006 by the present owners. While the structure and some of its characteristic features, such as the cupola ceilings, the arches and even a good-luck stone on top of the upstairs master bedroom, were kept intact, modern and sophisticated features were added to the house. The bathrooms and the kitchens have a harmonious mix of handcrafted features, such as travertine marble sinks and old Neapolitan tile back splashes, and modern appliances of the highest standard.
Villa Poeti is built on two levels and has two completely independent apartments, each with their own bathrooms, kitchens and outdoor terraces. On yet a third level there is a magnificent infinity pool (open April 30 - October 29) that makes you feel as if you could swim into the sea in front of you. A fourth terrace has a wonderful shaded limonaia, or lemon tree pergola, where you can sit and have a drink or rest on a lounge chair in peace and seclusion. The pool area offers an outdoor shower/changing area, and an outdoor grill.
Additional amenities include: 24/7 ADSL Internet access, fax, pay phone, intercom system to communicate between floors and with the pool area, piped in stereo system, TV (in upstairs living room), and a utility room with washing machine and sink.
