About the property

Panoramic Villa in exclusive estate. 180 Views on Amalfi, Private beach, town at 5 mins.

This arquitectural prize winning villa (please READ carefully additional notes on PRICES) is surrounded by lemon trees, olive trees and bouganvilleas in a typical gently terraced landscape which create the perfect Mediterranean atmosphere. As you get into the house you will find the main sitting room, from there you access to an amazing terrace overlooking an authentic Norman tower into the mediterranean sea and a lush forest as the backround . The modern kitchen is well-equipped. From the living room you access to 4 BEDROOMS, the shaded and furnished east terrace, and to the swimming pool path out on the west side. TWO (2) ADDITIONAL DETACHED BEDROOMS: one with a queen size double bed with en-suite bathroom, which is part of the main house, and one with two single beds and separate bathroom one meter away. The whole house features air-conditioning. The amazing infinity sea water pool is huge by private standards. With its 18mx8m in size it gives the feeling of being suspended upon the Mediterranean sea. In order to guarantee a pool water temperature always in excess of 75 degrees F, the pool is HEATED in the months of April, May, September and October. The pool water, besides being directly pumped from the sea, is treated with the H2O system, that completely eliminates chlorine. The result is like having the sea below the house delivered up to the house pool area, all for a stunning swimming experience.From the house through a private path you have exclusive land access to the sea, where you can dive into the sea through a sun bathing platform or one of the two natural grottos. To finish up the idillyc sorrounding there is a natural waterfall cascading into the turquoise sea. The villa is reached from the main coastal road. There is parking space for as many as 4 cars.

At Villa la Calcara we offer cooking on demand solutions based on four menus. We give tips on favourite restaurant locations, boat rentals including, and provide free of hassle boat charter services.

2019 prices will take into considerations heated pool in the middle season months plus further Villa space and amenities improvements.

About Ulrico Bracci and Simona Iucci

I live in portugal with my family: my wife who is a designer, my two girls, viorica and the pets. I love the ocean ...but as I married an italian muse, we agreed to keep a foot in the med, this house is definetly my favourite mediterranean sea hydeaway.

Ulrico Bracci and Simona Iucci purchased this villa in 1999

Why Ulrico Bracci and Simona Iucci chose Maiori

it is the perfect place to escape the crowds in lively surrounding areas rich in culture, and the ideal spot to do amazing excursions in archeological places, amazing beaches and beautiful fishermen villages! of course if you want to join the crowd in in 3 minutes you are in Maiori, or Minori, 15 minutes you are in Amalfi

What makes this villa unique

for those that tend to enjoy a property...the amazing seawater swiming pool (heated in April, May, September, October, November), once a day we go down to the turquoise sea and its natural grottos...350 steps it is a fantastic excercise! and tipically twice a week we ask Carmela (the house keeper!) to cook for she knows the art as anybody good in town!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Simona,

we have had a fabulous time at the villa. It was a beautiful location and we have really enjoyed the pool. We visited Pompeii , walked the Sentiera Degli Dei, and took a great boat ride to Capri. We enjoyed the walk to the beach.

Thanks Anne-Marie and Family


two days left before leaving :-(

They were exceptional holiday in your house, and in this truly stunning Amalfi.

Carmela was always very helpful, the house is a a dream house, the pool is just amazing, the views of the sea are breathless.

Capri, Ravello, Cetara your town, Positano, and even the old Salerno.

Let's keep in touch, because we want to return next year.

A strong kiss, it was a beautiful moment.


Dear Simona,

we would like to let you know that we have a spent a beautiful week in your lovely house - If you may ever consider to sell it, let us know first.We would like to come back next year's summer for a week or two, if possible.All the Best D.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here with my extended family, seven people total. The place was large enough to spread out, swim and eat. The views are incredible! The photos on the site represent the property well. The kitchen was on the small side but very well laid out and had all the cooking equipment you would need. It is a short trip to Maiori to buy groceries but driving that skinny road with buses coming in the opposite direction required nerves of steel. Giving it 5 stars since we all loved the place.

Awesome! We were a party of 10 adults and 2 children arriving the day before Easter and staying for one week. We were looking for an adventure and Villa la Calcara delivered. The views from every angle are spectacular, the rooms are comfortable and inviting, and even though we were a large group it seemed like we always had enough space. The owners, Ulrico Bracci and Simona Iucci, have beautifully outfitted Villa la Calcara with art, WiFi, a Bluetooth music system and there is cable TV. The Villa is conveniently located to all the sights on the Amalfi coast including amazing places to eat. We did our share of dining out but were more than happy to find that by picking up groceries locally we could use the fully equipped kitchen and outdoor grill to make several meals and take advantage the views. There are so many positive things that could be said about Villa la Calcara but maybe the best is that it is a great place to begin your personal adventure on the Amalfi coast. Villa la Calcara was and is a great place to call home while being on the Amalfi Coast!

Winter 2017

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautifully situated, the views are spectacular. A typical Italian home, the house is very comfortable for 10 people. The owner is very kind and obliging, Carmela does't speak English so I could not talk to her at all, I do not know the Italian language ;( I recommend this house to have a great rest! Michael

Unbelievably great stay on all counts

  • 5 of 5

My family had an amazing stay at the villa! The pictures don't do it justice. We never take the time to leave reviews but had to in this case. This villa is a hidden gem on a very busy coast. Carmella and her crew are great hosts even though she does not speak English, we managed very prompt communication through host Ulrich. The home is really well designed with modern bathrooms with a wine cellar to boot. We BBQed one evening and had a lovely dinner on the outdoor dining table. We had a very special meal at a restaurant recommended by Ulrich in the tiny town of Atrani. The infinity pool with its view of the coast was beautiful. Gettong around without a car tricky. One recommendation, better cooling in the main living room (the one AC is not enough, thank God Carmella loaned us her standing fan). Other than that, each room has its own AC unit, so hot nights very tolerable. Finally, host Ulrich very quick to respond to texts asking questions about the home or for recommendations...overall one of the best places we have stayed and we have travelled the world....

Beautiful and spatious villa in outstanding location

  • 5 of 5

Just stayed in villa la calcara for one week with family...age range 15 to 80+ ! We were mainly a party of 9, but for 2 nights 12. Plenty of places to spread out either by pool, on roof, in back courtyard by kitchen or in air-conditioned communal area in house. Kitchen well equipped, outside wine fridge, and excellent BBQ. Spectactacular views over sea and across to norman tower or Maiori (which has good supermarket, but also a good number of meat, fish and vegetable shops which sell freshest produce). Maiori 10mins away by car also has good restaurants. Younger members of party (55 and less) enjoyed daily hike down to rocks and dive into sea. Beautiful and large infinity pool for those less energetic. Fantastic stay, would thoroughly recommend. Carmela the housekeeper very helpful as was owner Ulrico who responded very quickly to any questions send through this site.

Lovely Private Villa with exceptional pool and views.

  • 5 of 5

Villa Calcarra was an excellent fit for my wife and I and three other couples for a weeks vacation without kids. The villa is located about 10 minutes east of Maiori center. Driving on the winding roads above the Amalfi coast is a challenge, but we found the gate to enter the villa on the second try and from then on it was not an issue. The villa is total privacy. The pool has exceptional views of the sea and Maiori and is a great place to relax after spending your day hiking, swimming, boating or sunbathing. On the other side of the villa near the kitchen there is a lovely large outdoor dining table that comfortably accommodates 10 people. The villa also has a roof deck with wonderful views. The men found it a good place for smoking cigars and drinking scotch late at night. You can find everything you need in Maiori – supermarket, pharmacy, etc... although traveling from town to town can be slow on the road. The house also has a private grotto that you can walk/hike down to and swim in the ocean. (A piece of advice is to get in and out via the rope or make sure you have water shoes to get out on the other side or be prepared to have bloody feet.)

The accommodations are comfortable and well taken care of. There are five bedrooms, although one is really best for kids. The beds were fine and the bathrooms clean with plenty of hot water. The kitchen is small but has everything you need to cook a fine meal as we did on two occasions of eating in. There is an indoor dining table that sits eight. There is DSL internet and wifi, although the coverage is really only inside the main house. The broadband is probably not enough to satisfy a bunch of streaming happy kids, but was more than sufficient to keep up with work emails and to Facetime our children. There is also a small washer for laundry and lines to hang up your wet clothes in the sun on the roof.

Throughout the process, we found the owner Ulrico to be extremely responsive and helpful – among the best we have rented from over the years. He also has nice bottles of his own wine for sale at a very reasonable price in a wine fridge out back. We happily drank several. If ultra lux is what you are after, you will be disappointed. However, as a base for exploring the Amalfi coast with friends and family, we found the house perfect for our needs and use and would recommend it to others seeking the same.
