A substantial villa with private access to the sea
Marina del Cantone
4 double bedrooms, 1 twin bedroom, 4 bathrooms
Nestled on the Amalfi Coast in the beautiful scenery of Marina del Cantone is Villa Flori. The Marina is famous for wonderful seafood restaurants and you may well spot one of the celebrities who sail from the island of Capri to sample the delectable local dishes.
Perched above the azure sea, but protected from the wind by the mountains, the villa offers stunning views of the harbour, dotted with gently bobbing fishing boats. A private walkway of just 110 steps leads you directly from your terrace to the pebbled beach below, for a swim where the crystal clear warm waters lap over the rocky shoreline.
You will need a vehicle to fully benefit from your stay at Villa Flori. There are parking spaces for three cars.
The villa itself is arranged over two floors. On the lower floor you will find a spacious living room with simple, stylish décor. There are several comfortable leather sofas and a large flat screen television. Large wooden framed double doors grace each wall, waiting to be thrown open on warm days to let the sea breezes enter. There is a dining table to seat six. There is also an internet Wifi connection and air conditioning throughout the apartment.
The well equipped kitchen offers everything you will need for relaxed self-catering, including a four burner hob, oven, dishwasher, microwave, fridge freezer, kettle and coffee maker. There is a washing machine, iron and ironing board in a utility room.
Also on the ground floor is a bathroom, with shower, toilet and wash basin. There is also a study with space to read or work in peace.
A short distance from the living room is a separate annexe. This offers a twin bedroom with two single beds, plus a private bathroom, with shower, washbasin and toilet.
Surrounding the lower level are several beautiful terraces, each with a different perspective on the spectacular seascape. The sea varies in shade from dawn to dusk; from the palest grey, to the brightest turquoise, before turning to dark blue. You will be spoiled for choice when deciding where to relax, with a choice of tables and chairs and even a hammock, whether in sunshine, or in shade.
Between the lower and upper floors is a stunning open staircase, taking you to the four double bedrooms. Each of these bedrooms has wonderful sea views, with two having a small terrace with table and chairs accessed through double doors. The décor is modern with clean lines, with comfortable beds and the benefit of a flat screen satellite television and air conditioning in every room.
Also on the upper floor are two bathrooms, one with blue tiles and the other emerald green, both with an invigorating and relaxing hydro shower, plus a toilet, double sink, bidet and hairdryer.
If you’re looking to explore the area, why not hire a boat to visit the tiny islands of Gallo Lungo, Castelluccia, and La Rotonda, which sit on the horizon to the east of Marina del Cantone. Called the Isole Sirenuse (Isles of the Sirens), they were once said to be home to mythical mermaids who lured unwitting sailors onto the rocks.
Villa Flori offers exceptional accommodation on the Amalfi Coast, with everything that a larger party needs for a relaxing break.
Please note, there will be a final cleaning charge of € 200 added to the rental period at the time of booking.
