Villa Moresca is a fascinating small house of 50 square

meters (550 square feet) suitable for 3 people. There is a terrace from which

you can enjoy widespread views of the sea and of Amalfi. A footpath takes you

down to the sea.

The building dates back to the 14th century and is

perfectly conserved in its original structure. It is 1.5 km (one mile) away

from the centre of Amalfi.

Villa Moresca is built on a peak on the rocky coast,

between the road and the sea. You reach it by going down ten steps from the

level of the road.

After going through the gate, which is on the road, you see immediately the

white building of the villa with a roof made of entwined domes, which, white and bright,

stand out against the blue of the sea. The house is surrounded by a

terrace covered in hand painted majolica, as blue as the sky and the sea. The convenient location of the house, which is not many steps from the road, has the only drawback of making it a bit nosier than one could wish.

The terrace has antique terracotta amphorae and long stone benches and is

furnished with garden furniture. A pergola of wisteria and bougainvillea shades

this entrance. The sea is in front of the house and at the side there is a

piece of tiered land cultivated with lemon groves. A stair goes down beyond the

house and passes through flowering corners and other cultivated lemon groves

until you reach sea level.

The altogether is charming and you will fall in love with it as soon as you see

it.

The inside of the house is also full of charm.

The large bedroom has a very high cross-vaulted ceiling made in the Arabian

style, which is commonly found on the Amalfitan Coast due to the frequent

invasions of the Saracen during the 14th century. When you see the windows

built high in the wall it will make you think back to the owners of that time

who wanted to sleep in safety.

The large room is furnished with antique furniture that perfectly matches the

style of the room. There is a double bed and, if necessary, a single bed can be

added. The room is kept naturally cool in summer due to the width of the stone

walls.

There is central heating during the cold season.

There is an en-suite bathroom with shower.

The room gives you direct entry to the sitting room/kitchen where there is a

dining table, a cooker and a fridge.

A glass door connects the sitting room/kitchen to a terrace of roughly 10 square

meters (110 square feet) tiled in turquoise majolica and furnished with a table,

chairs, sun loungers and is shaded by a pergola.

While you are lying out on this terrace, sunbathing, you will see only sky, sea

and the outline of the Amalfitan Coast.

This will become your favourite place to have breakfast in the fresh morning air

or to have dinner in the evening under the stars in front of the flickering

lights of the coast and the moonlight over the sea.

Perhaps, in those moments, your thoughts will go back in time to long ago and

you will shiver thinking that you are in a place full of seven centuries of

history.

Villa Moresca is an annexe of a nearby hotel that is open

all year round. The guests of the house can use the services of the hotel,

which include a bar and restaurant, organising of arrival and departure

transfers (on request) and book excursions to Capri, Pompei, Sorrento, Napoli,

Vesusio and Paestum.

The bus stop is at a short distance.

The public SITA bus service links you via road to all the coastal towns and it

is easy to reach Amalfi, Positano, Sorrento, Pompei, Ercolano, Paestum and the

Palace of Caserta.

From the quay in Amalfi you can catch a ferry or a small cruiser to visit the

islands of Capri and Ischia or the mainland towns of Positano, Sorrento and

Naples.

The Amalfi Coast 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

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”.
