Villa | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 10
Villa La Campanella is located in Scala, the most ancient city on the Amalfi Coast, bordering Ravello (2.5 Km), in the medieval hamlet of Minuta. This village is situated in a strategic position and offers a panoramic view of the coast and the Gulf of Salerno.
The large garden surrounding the Villa protects it from the outside world, making it hidden and impenetrable, far removed from the noise and clamor of modern life. This place is filled with magical atmospheres: the view, which is different from every terrace and observation point, is truly breathtaking and the climate, always cool and temperate even on the hottest days, makes it the perfect place for relaxing and enjoying “creative idleness”.
The Villa occupies a covered area of 500 sq. meters and is situated inside a 4,000 meter park. The large panoramic terrace with ancient stone basins and wisteria-covered arcades is the heart of the house. Practical pathways run all around the well-tended gardens. Numerous olive and lemon trees offer shade and covered areas with benches and observation points from which to enjoy the view. A large panoramic swimming pool (7x14 m) with whirlpool and a small sports field with artificial turf (for basketball, badminton, ping-pong and five-a-side football) can be found amidst the greenery of the garden. The vegetable garden provides fresh, natural produce for the kitchen.
All the rooms and living areas in the Villa have central heating, air conditioning, telephones, digital and satellite TV, ADSL broadband and access to the digital archive with HD films and music.
The “hobby room” has a home theater entertainment system, with movie screen-sized video and surround sound multi-channel audio, a musical instrument area (keyboards and electric piano, guitars), video-game console, computer with printers and fax, a well-stocked library featuring literary classics, including children's books, and a film library with hundreds of movies, operas and concerts in high definition Blu-ray.
The Villa has a modern security system including alarms and a safe.
On request, the peace and comfort of the Villa can be enhanced by a housekeeper and chef who are willing to offer guests a chance to learn more about and enjoy the delicacies of the local cuisine.
Amalfi is 7.5 Km away (around 10 minutes by foot along the panoramic pathway), Positano 27, Salerno 30.

The Campania region
History, culture, natural beauty, crystal waters, dazzling beaches...and food to die for. Italy really does have it all. From Venice's architectural jewels in the north to Puglia's sun soaked olive growths in the south, there's something for everyone in this country of infinite variety.
Whether you choose to spend your time exploring the Adriatic Coast, with its white sands and dramatic promontories, or the gentle rolling hills of Umbria, where almost every view is reminiscent of a Renaissance painting, your time in Italy will be time well spent.
And let's not forget the Italian Lakes, whose serene and ageless splendour has beguiled visitors for centuries. As has the island charm and Sicily and Sardinia, two very different yet equally enchanting holiday destinations. Last, but by no means least, is there any other city on the planet that can match Rome for its combination of ancient history and cosmopolitan style?
Prepare to relax in the most enchanting surrounds you have ever seen...
Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO the Amalfi Coast is home to some of the best-loved and most beautiful coastal towns in the world, Positano and her less famous sister (and all the better for that!) Praiano and the ancient town of Amalfi, the town that gives the coast its name.
