The Campania region
Villa Generosa is located in the Sorrento peninsula facing on the islands of Li Galli, the two legendary smallest islands of Ulisse’s sirens, once owned by the most famous dancer of the world Rudolph Nureyev. The view of this Villa is really amazing overlooking the Gulf of Salerno from the far Punta Licosa to the cape of Monte San Costanzo falling down to the Punta della Campanella. On the East side you will see the Amalfi coast with the mountain and several delicious little town, built on rocky ridges along the coast as Positano and Praiano. On the west and south side you will be immersed in the view of the astonishing Baia of Nerano, Li Galli, the island of Vetara and the private island of Lisca, owned by the family of the famous actor and writer Eduardo De Filippo.
With its 42 kilometre stretch of gently sloping coastline and white pebbled-beaches, the Amalfi Coast is an 'earthly paradise' with breathtaking beauty.
AMALFI COAST: One of Italy's most spectacular coastlines begins after Sorrento, runs through Positano and continues until it reaches Amalfi. Looking along the tall cliffs and down into the sapphire sea, takes your breath away.
POSITANO: A vibrant village with narrow, colourful buildings which cascade like a waterfall down a vertiginous hill to the sea. Positano's town centre meanders down to the waterfront, where a profusion of cafes, bars and restaurants sell fresh seafood. The beach air is filled with the perfume of orange, almond blossom and jasmine.
AMALFI: Once the most important trading port in the southern Italy, Amalfi is in the ravine of the Mulini Valley, its churches, towers and arcaded houses rising above the small harbour. The town's Duomo dominates a long flight of steps and embraces a picturesque piazza stretching to its seafront. A wonderful contrast between fine beaches in front and tall cliffs behind.
CAPRI: Capri offers panormamic vistas at every turn, picturesque eateries with local seafood and blue grottos hidden under the limestone cliffs. A trip to Capri is ideal for a one-day excursion from Sorrento with the hydrofoil. Capri is, unquestionably, the holiday princess of the Italian islands: idyllic and rugged with its shimmering Blue Grotto and cliffs that descend down into the sea. Capri has trendy jewellery shops and designer boutiques.
POMPEII & VESUVIUS: Pompeii is one of the most important Roman archaeological sites in the world and Vesuvius is the only active volcano in Europe. Pompeii and Herculaneum are cities buried by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD and re-discovered in the 18th century. It is possible to drive to 3,200 feet and then trek to its summit to enjoy the mesmerising views of the entire gulf of Naples.

"Wonderful, relaxing holiday"
My family and I stayed here over Christmas and New Year. There were my parents, my husband and I and our two children. Carmine, Naples Villas' local property manager, was very kind and helpful and made our stay memorable. He arranged several services for us - such as an in house chef for our New Year's Eve, which was a spectacular, Italian style meal. Also, he arranged a mozzarella and wine tasting tour. We went along the amazing Amalfi Coast for wine tasting and sipped our wine whilst looking over the Bay of Naples.
You need a car to stay at the property but you can leave it in the gated parking area outside the villa. I would suggest hiring a small car though. The location is perfect for a relaxing holiday - quiet, tranquil with stunning views of Li Galli islands and the Amalfi Coast. However, it is still close enough to the main tourist sights. 20 minutes by car to Sorrento. From here, you can either continue onto Positano, Amalfi and Ravello by car or get public transport.We also took the train from Sorrento to Pompeii and Naples. We had an amazing day on the island of Capri too. Carmine also advised us of the best way to make the most of our excursions.
This villa was wonderful - peaceful and very good value for money. It is also very well maintained and clean. The beds were very comfortable. We would definitely recommend this property, particularly during the summer months so we can take advantage of the pool and lovely garden. Also, the wood burning oven and outdoor dining area would be fabulous in the summer - enjoying the view whilst 'dining' alfresco.
