Description

Historical buildings, Villa Cocles is part of a 17th century old convent and has a completely independent entrance, only 16 steps down from the main street. The Villa preserves all the spacious areas of the original convent structure with its six meters high arches, vaulted ceilings and patios. The results are stunning: a large loft-style area has been created in what once was the convent dining hall with communicating rooms. There are a master bedroom, directly facing the terrace, divided by an original sliding arabesque curtain from the living room and a second bedroom with an old marbled three-light window facing the living room. This room has two single beds that can be arranged as a matrimonial if you ask and has the size of a monastic bedroom: experiment simplicity of once life!

The kitchen is directly linked to the terrace; just take a look from the large windows: the profile of the Coast, dotted with the typical colored houses and villas of this area! This kitchen is really

Location description from owner

The Amalfi Coast region

I wasn't born in Campania, but part of me belongs to this wonderland, thanks to mine ancestors. And being part of it, I can only describe and talk about this region with my favorite recipe: _Totani e Patate_

Here’s where MARE meets TERRA literally in this dish of squid and potatoes, a classic on the Amalfi Coast. Although it might sound a little different, try it and you’ll likely be surprised by this warm, cruncy, nectariferous dish.



But among all:
In Ischia visit La Mortella, the spectacular subtropical and mediterranean garden
Circumnavigate Capri and take a bath in crystalline water
Look at the Vesuvio from Pompeii and Herculaneum
Climb up the mountains to catch the most unforgettable vistas of the Amalfi Coast
Reach Naples and loose yourself in the 80-kilometer-long labyrinth of caves
Shop in Positano and refresh with the best lemonade
Take in a concert in Ravello
Hitch-hiking to Montepertuso and Nocelle, the upper villages
Or, cook with us!!!

Positano

John Steinbeck wrote:


Positano's history is long, rich and also quite strange; one thing is certainn, however: it started a lond time ago. When Emperor Tiberius moved to Capri bacause he was disliked in Rome. He did not trust anybody. He was afraid everyone wanted to poison him and perhaps he was right. He did not want bread made with local flour; therefore his three-oar boat went along the coast of Positano. This small center has had a remarkable past as part of the Amalfi Republic....in competition with Venice. In the XVII centuries Positano became enormously rich. Its ships arrived everywhere, traded with the near and Middle East, brought spices, silk and precious woods, greatly requested in the West.
It was at that time that the beautiful Baroque houses still standing against the mountains and decorated with the best things found around the world, were built.

(from "Harper's Bazaar" 1953)

The CHIESA NUOVA area, named after the rebuild church in XVIII, is the most ancient part of Positano. Locals always preferred to settle upper, away from the direct sea risks. Only after, when Positano changed from a rural town into a fisherman town, new houses started to spreads down.
Chiesa Nuova maintains its local origins, with its fruit and vegetables shop, butcher, fish market. Go to the cozy Bar Internazionale and have breakfast chatting with locals and feel yourself a bit Positanese!

“A wonderful place”

Reviewed 3 Aug 2016

Villa Cocles looks like something from Conde Nast Traveller - magnificent architecture filled with eclectic details you only get with an owner who really cares. The views from the terrace are fabulous, all the more so if you've just climbed the steps from the beach and opened a bottle of Prosecco.

I will never forget you and your family!!!! And all the time I'll drink sparkling wine made in the Veneto around the city of Treviso, Prosecco, I will always think of you! Grazie di tutto!
