Villa Poseidon is a luxury seafront villa in Amalfi Coast – set in a stunning strategic position on the rocks overlooking the sea, every level offers uninterrupted breathtaking views of the Mediterranean and the Praiano headland and a private mooring from where you can access the villa directly by boat. Entrance through a flower-filled garden onto the upper terrace welcomes you with glorious views which continue as you descend to the sea water pool, carved into the rock just above sea level. Large terraces make the most of the setting where relaxed outdoor living makes for an ideal holiday retreat.
The 'Amalfi Drive' is said to be the most spectacular road in Europe, running from Sorrento across the peninsula and along the coast to Salerno, but it is not for the faint-hearted, and you may prefer to visit by boat. As well as the private mooring at the villa you can easily access the many hydrofoils and ferries which link the villages along the peninsula with Capri, Naples and the less developed Cilento coast further south. Due to the steep terrain, many of the villages are mostly pedestrian and therefore best seen on foot. Quaint shops line the narrow streets and restaurants serve a variety of local produce, including of course wonderful seafood dishes.
There are many trips which run from nearby Sorrento: a day trip to the islands of Capri or Ischia is a must, as is a visit to fascinating Pompei where excavations begun in the 18th century are still ongoing, or a visit to Vesuvius where you can climb to the crater and admire the views over the Bay of Naples.
