A Fairytale Villa on the Amalfi Coast

Step through the gates into the private internal courtyard, lined with massive terracotta vases and handpainted majolica tiles, and continue inside to the ground floor living room, kitchen, dining room, or grand staircase leading to the bedrooms above.

The Kitchen

The rustic, antique kitchen is the perfect foil to the high end, modern appliances tucked in between the stone archways, marble sinks. and grand fireplace.

The credenza dates from the Baroque period, and the two ovens for fresh bread and pizza are built directly into the walls decorated with antique majolica tiles.

The Living Room

The living and dining rooms are divided into two separate areas, with an antique Tuscan oak table encircled by a blend of antique and modern armchairs, a bookshelf with antique volumes, a Neapolitan Rococo mirror, and a collection of antique paintings, including depictions of the life of Alexander the Great.

Downstairs, the Salus Pur Aquam spa includes an indoor pool lined with traditional Amalfi Coast majolica tiles, equipped with an endless pool system, massage jets both on the pool walls and seat, and a massage waterfall,
