Villa Albarosa A is a gracious house by the coast which boasts a terrace, a

patio, and a private garden with a breathtaking view of the sea and the coast.

It has access to a shared swimming-pool.

Villa Albarosa A is 40 square meters (about 430.5 square feet) large and it can

sleep up to three people. It is equipped with air-conditioning and large parking

space.

Villa Albarosa has a double bedroom, a bathroom with shower, a living-room with

a kitchenette and a sofa, a patio, a large terrace, and a garden.

The place

The villa is located on a prominent stretch of coast between Vietri sul Mare and

Amalfi, 5 km (about 3.1 miles) away from Vietri sul Mare.

From Vietri you have the beginning of the coastal road along which you will see

all the famous towns of the Amalfi Coast one after the other as you pass by.

After running along the coast and going past Amalfi and Positano, you will be

able to arrive in Sorrento no later than in an hour.

Villa Albarosa is a simple one-storey cottage nestled in a terraced land in a

prominent position. It is placed before the blue sky and the blue sea, and it is

surrounded by the vivid green of a lawn and the lush Mediterranean vegetation.

The cottage is divided in two halves (parts), reason why you will find two

same-size apartments, Villa Albarosa A and Villa Albarosa B.

As soon as you arrive on the terraces, your eyes will meet the wide arch of the

Gulf of Salerno: on the right you will have a picturesque glimpse of the Amalfi

Coast, while on the left and further away you will see the mountainous coast of

the Parco Nazionale del Cilento (National Park of Cilento).

And if you look down right below, you will see a long and steep stretch of

verdant coast due to cultivations of lemons which seem to plunge into the sea.

And at sea level, you will see from the above the little village of Vietri Sul

Mare, unmistakable for its wide beach of grey sand and the large shining

majolica dome and bell tower of its cathedral.

The air is transparent and perfume-filled, and the colors are bright: by looking

around near the villa, you will be able to see bits of the roofs of some houses

immersed in the surrounding green.

You will soon realize, just as I did, that this place is an angle of paradise.

Lucky the one who can live here forever!

The villa is found inside an age-old seven-hectare farm still fenced in by a

high and old stone wall. The terrain descends from up above the coast down

towards the sea, and it is cultivated with lemon pergolas characteristic of the

Amalfi Coast. On the highest part of the land, there's an age-old main villa and

other three small ones which are about 100 meters (about 328 feet) away one from

another.

The agricultural farm, besides growing lemons, produces the famous Limoncello

liqueur and other liqueurs made of fennel and laurel. You can taste these and

other products at the main villa.

The owners live in the place and will be at your disposal with all their

discretion in case you need any help. You can book dinners at the main villa or

even book guided tours or excursions on boats.

You need a car during your stay at Villa Albarosa. You will find the first shops

and restaurants only 4 km (about 2.5 miles) away. The access to the villa is

convenient: you can park the car not far from the house and walk towards the

villa with no need to climb any steps.

The garden and the swimming pool

At Villa Albarosa A you will find a large garden consisting of a lawn where your

kids will be able to play freely. You will be able to stroll around the green

areas inside the property or even go on a true guided tour within the premises

of the agricultural farm.

The shared swimming-pool is located next to the villa, and it has an unusual

shape. It is 16 x 6 meters (about 53 x 20 feet) large and dug into the rock. It

also has a crystal-plate cover. Near the pool you will find a sun-drenched area

with umbrellas, deck chairs, a bathroom, and showers.

The house and its terrace

Villa Albarosa A is completely on the ground floor. You enter it from the garden

through a large arched patio door which will lead you to the living-room. From

the living-room, a second arched patio door will enable you to reach the

wonderful terrace overlooking the sea and the coast.

The terrace is shaded by a pergola and furnished with sun loungers and beautiful

wrought-iron and majolica garden furniture. Colorful Bougainvillea grow in

terracotta vases, and vases of red dangling cranesbills embellish the railing.

You will enjoy spending time on this terrace. You will be able to dine under the

stars, or if can wake up early in the morning, even to enjoy a fantastic dawn:

the sun rises behind the Cilento mountains, away and with sky-blue hues

surrounded by a pinkish light which inundates the entire arch of the Gulf of

Salerno and the sea…

In the living-room, you will find a couch, a chair-bed, a television, and a

table with chairs. In an angle there is the gracious kitchenette. It is equipped

with a two-burner stove and a fridge.

From the living-room you can reach the double bedroom, where you will find a

large four-post bed, a comfortable closet, and a small television set. The

bathroom with shower is beautiful and elegant, and you reach it through the

bedroom. The bedroom features a large arched window overlooking the garden.

At Villa Albarosa A, furnishings are well cared for, complete and elegant. The

interior boasts the typical style of Mediterranean homes: beautiful antique

furniture with several colorful ceramics objects of local artifact which render

the rooms bright and cozy.

The beach

Villa Albarosa is near one of the largest and most beautiful beaches of the

Amalfi Coast: the beach of Vietri sul Mare. It is a beach of fine sand enclosed

within a picturesque inlet. There are bars and restaurants near the beach.

During spring/summer time, in case you want, you can use the services of beach

establishments which offer you the possibility of renting umbrellas and deck

chairs.

Nearby tourist attractions

During your stay at Villa Albarosa, you will be in a convenient place to visit

the coast of Amalfi, Capri and Ischia, Sorrento, Pompeii, Herculaneum, the

Vesuvius, Naples, Caserta, Salerno, Paestum and other sites by using the

efficient and economical public transportation network either through sea or

land.

You will be 5 km (about 3.1 miles) away from Vietri sul Mare, famous for its

production of artifactual ceramics. In Vietri Sul Mare you will have the railway

station with the local trains and also the access way to the Salerno-Naples

highway. You can easily reach the archaeological ruins of Pompeii and

Herculaneum, Sorrento, the Vesuvius, Naples, the temples of Paestum and the

National Park of Cilento either by car, by train or by bus.

Only 7 km (about 4.3 miles) away from the villa, at the port of Salerno, you

will have ferries and hydrofoils which connect with frequent and economical

trips the coast of the Parco Nazionale del Cilento (National Park of Cilento),

Salerno, Amalfi, Positano, Sorrento, Naples, and the islands of Capri and

Ischia. You can even easily plan one-day excursions.

be an unforgettable experience!

of the Amalfi Coast and the characteristic fashion and artisans' shops, as well

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.

Vietri sul Mare

Crystalline pure waters meet the bright blue backdrops and eternal sunscapes, creating an incredible healing place, that will nourish your soul. Brilliant tones of orange, green, red, and deep sea blue are the natural colour schemes representing such a beautiful fishermen village, adding a touch of magic to this wonderful Mediterranean retreat.

Vietri is famous for the unique production of "Ceramica Vietrese", a special traditional kind of pottery exported anywhere. The ceramics in Costiera boast a long history, whose roots traced back to the XV century... the clay used to be imported from Salerno rather than Nocera, and cooked into high powerful ovens.

The ability of the local craftsmen's become finer and finer thanks to the important trade exchanges and commerce with Sicily, Tuscany and many other Mediterranean areas, and the subsequent possibility to learn new techniques. This situation allowed popular international artists like Richard Dolker, Irene Kowaliska and Guido Gambone to relaunch name and themes of ceramics in Vietri all over the world.

Whether you are keen on this kind of art or not, you should go to visit the delightful Museum of Ceramics set up in the Tower of Villa Guariglia. The museum is located on top of Mount Falerio, overlooking the sea and Vietri itself, in a lovely hamlet rich in parish churches frescoed by Solimena, called Raito. It's a natural nativity scene, with just a few white houses set like precious stones of which Villa Guariglia is the diamond!

You'll admire a huge range of things, like: holy water containers, decorated plates, candlesticks, pots, kitchen pots, flowered pots, as well as various ornaments. All this reproduced in order to bring back to life an antique tradition handed on from father to son generation by generation.
