Villa Arcangela A and B are two apartments that are part of a medieval building, that used to be an ancient Saracen watch tower. It is placed high up on a picturesque tract of rocky coast, at a height of approximately 100 meters (330 feet) above the sea level, and almost sheer above the sea itself. Every view of the seascape in this area is truly breathtaking.

The building is part of a bunch of ancient houses that cling to the top of a rocky spur, all facing the sea and the sun, and surrounded by lemon growths. Here the authentic locals of Amalfi live their life, with its quiet rhythm, and there is no crowd of tourists.

You will reach it walking uphill for approximately 20 meters (20 yards) along a short pedestrian alley. Once beyond the main door, you will find yourself in a small yard, closed on three sides by white walls, and open on the fourth side on a spectacular view of the coast and of the sea.

The tourist spots of the coast, though, are all right at hand, with the splendid Cathedral of Amalfi to begin with.

You will reach it walking uphill for approximately 20 meters (20 yards) along a short pedestrian alley. Once beyond the main door, you will find yourself in a small yard, closed on three sides by white walls, and open on the fourth side on a spectacular view of the coast and of the sea.

The structure of Villa Arcangela B is the one of the ancient houses of the coast of Amalfi.

The floors are tiled with majolica tiles which have splendid designs and colors, and which are hand-made by local artisans.

To reach the beach you have several options. You can board the bus that stops at 20 meters (yards) from the house and reach the beach of Amalfi. From there you will be able to board small ferries that will take you to splendid inlets along the coast.

One of these inlets, called the beach of Santa Croce (of the Holy Cross) can also be reached on foot from Villa Arcangela. It is a walk not to be missed, if you don't mind descending 330 steps cut into the rock sheer above the sea.

To get back up, anyway, you will be able to board one of the small ferries that will take you back to the quay of Amalfi in 10 minutes of amazing navigation. From the quay you will be able to get back by bus.

Restaurants and bars are open during the good season on all these beaches. You will also be able to rent beach umbrellas and deck chairs, as well as board small boats to reach lovely and secluded small beaches.

In Amalfi you will also be able to dive and practice water sports.

Villa Arcangela B is a great starting point to visit the entire coast.

It is only 3 km (2 miles) from the quay of Amalfi, where you will be able to board ferries and mini-cruises to visit the islands of Capri and Ischia, Positano, Sorrento, Naples and Salerno.

The buses link together the villages along the coast, and it is also easy to reach Pompeii, Herculaneum and the Royal Palace of Caserta.

The bus stop is at 20 meters (20 yards) from the house.

The closest shops are at 800 meters (half a mile) from the house.

You will be able to park your car for free along the public road, depending on the availability of parking spaces, or for a fee in a private lot (reservation required).

Moreover, if you like hiking you will be able to easily reach the famous trail along the ridge of the mountains that overlook the Amalfi Coast. For its extraordinary beauty, made of precipices and breathtaking views, the trail is

called "Sentiero degli Dei": Path of the Gods.

The Campania region

If you think you have no idea of where Campania is, think again. This fascinating land, rich in gulfs, islands and legendary places, is home to the charming landscapes of the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento, the Cilento National Park, Capri and Ischia.

The Campania region is situated in the South of Italy and bounded by the Tyrrhenian Sea (that’s the name of that stretch of Mediterranean). The region is divided into five provinces, whose capitals are Salerno, Caserta, Avellino, Benevento and Naples (Napoli). Naples is also the capital city of the region itself. With roughly 6 million of residents, half of which lives around the city of Naples, Campania has more people than Finland, packed in an area which is 200 times smaller.

If you are fond of archeology, architecture, or simply want to see history come back to life, Campania is a must. The archeological heritage is huge: the temples left by the Greeks in Paestum, the buried towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the remains of Velia, the masterpieces kept in the museums, the churches… and, of course!, the Royal Palace of Caserta, built to be the most sumptuous palace of Europe, with its 1200 rooms.

If the majesty you prefer is the majesty of nature, Campania will not disappoint you. The sandy beaches and the crystal-clear waters of the Cilento National Park, the amazing scenery of the Amalfi Coast, the islands of the Gulf of Naples are just a sampler of what lies ahead of you. From the underground depths of the caves of Pertosa to the heights of Mount Vesuvius, there is something for everyone. By the way, being Mount Vesuvius an active volcano, we respectfully suggest you visit sooner rather than later.

An outline of Campania would not be complete without a mention of its culinary tradition. Many of the world-known Italian dishes have their roots in Campania: pizza, spaghetti, mozzarella, limoncello, cannelloni… Italians know Campania well for being one of the regions that offer the best food, and definitely the region where you can taste the best coffee. Espresso, cappuccino and now interesting variations on the theme such as hazelnut coffee make the day of the residents of Campania, and will make yours as well.

So don’t miss your chance to enjoy the holiday of a lifetime in this beautiful land, where art, history, nature and tradition come together to offer unforgettable thrills.

Amalfi Coast

Amalfi, situated at the mouth of the Valley of the Mills, with its characteristic groups of houses clinging to the rocks, overlooks the sea. It is a maze of narrow alleyways comprised of archways, portals and ancient towers that stand guard over the town.

The origin of the town date back to the IV century. During late medieval times Amalfi became an independent maritime republic, rich and opulent due to intense trade and cultural exchanges with the Arab and Byzantine world. The city was renowned for its trade and diplomatic relations throughout the Mediterranean, Flavio Gioia’s invention and development of the marine compass and the “Amalfitan Tables” - the first maritime legal code. It was also during this time that mills of Amalfi began to produce paper rather than parchment. The paper was used for all the official acts and documents of the Court of the Duchy of Naples. The particular variety of Amalfitan lemon “the Sfusato Amalfitano” crossed the borders of Europe, and was exported throughout the world.

The architectural and artistic values of its monuments and historical buildings, the indescribable beauty of its landscapes, its folklore and traditions have made, and still make, Amalfi a place without comparison, so much so that it has been said: “For an Amalfitan the day he goes to heaven is just like any other day”.
