La Rupe del Pensatore
Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
La Rupe del Pensatore is a unique property, a place where man's tenacity has rendered possible that which seemed impossible. The result is the creation of an earthly paradise where tradition intermingles with imagination and where fantasies can literally take flight. Built into the rock walls above the sea, the property is perfectly integrated into this very special natural background. Geographically La Rupe del Pensatore lies about half-way between Sorrento and Positano, but the sensation when you enter the gate of the property is that of entering a dream world. It is unlike any other place you have ever seen. Its characteristic micro-climate has allowed the creation of a garden rich with tropical plants. Passing through the house and exiting on the other side you will find even more surprises. First you will find the external kitchen furnished with a grill and a pizza oven followed by the panoramic terraces, the swimming-pool (8x3m) with hydro massage and finally you will reach the marvellous grotto with a corner bar and the "pensatoio" - a quiet spot for losing yourself in pleasant thoughts - a terrace with breathtaking views which ends this enchanting walk and where a Peregrine falcon has made its nest -perched high on the rock face.
The legendary islands called Li Galli are a constant part of the panorama from the house. Due to its special location, this villa is not considered suitable for children under 6 years old. Sorrento lies about 6kms away. The nearest, rocky, beach is about 1.5 kms away, and the nearest sandy beach is in Positano, 8 kms.

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.
