Villa Saracena is a splendid and luminous three-story historical villa which faces the sun and the sea. It sleeps 12 people. From Villa Saracena you will enjoy a thrilling view of the sea and of the coast of Amalfi. Villa Saracena is 400 square meters (4300 square feet). It features a private swimming pool, spacious private terraces with a view of the sea, air conditioning (please read description below to check in which rooms the units are installed), winter heating and WI-FI Internet access.
You will be roughly 4 km (2.5 miles) from Maiori, where you will find restaurants, the shops, the beach and the tourist port. You will find the closest restaurant at 800 meters (880 yards) and the stop for the SITA bus Amalfi - Salerno line a few meters (feet) away. You will reach Villa Saracena from the parking area along a short private walkway that cuts through the garden and has no stairway steps.
You will not need a car to stay at Villa Saracena. If you do have one, you will be able to park it on the premises, free of charge inside the entrance gate.


Villa Saracena is situated on a rocky outcropping near a summit that overlooks the sea, and is surrounded by 30,000 square meters (325,000 square feet) of rocky land scattered with pine trees. Part of this land has been divided into different sized terraces. From each of the terraces you will enjoy a wonderful sea view and enchanting glimpses of the coast.

The main feature of the villa is an authentic circular tower built more than a thousand years ago, which was used to warn the local people when pirate ships were approaching. The tower was renovated at the beginning of the 1900s to create the villa, and other rooms were added later.

Now, there is a magnificent terrace at the top of the tower, linked to a smaller rounded terrace on top of a rocky ledge that juts out towards the sea. From up there you can see, in the distance, a stretch of the coast up to Amalfi and even as far as Capo di Conca dei Marini, which has a similar antique lookout tower. At closer range, you can see a promontory of white limestone covered in thick Mediterranean vegetation, with its steep cliffs overlooking the deep sea. Directly below you lies a little bay, where the shadows cast by the rocky sea bed cause the sea to change colour from deep blue to emerald green, and becoming white and transparent beside the shingled shore.

Behind the tower there is a green (though dry) mountainside covered with a very hardy type of pine tree that somehow manages to thrive with its roots well anchored into the cracks between the rocks. The only building visible is an ancient abbey dating back to the 14th century, which has a unique Moorish-Mediterranean style and is sheltered by a rocky outcropping. Even though the villa is near the road and not far from busy tourist centres, the only thing you can see is green vegetation, sky and sea—you are well concealed, with ample privacy. Whoever passes by will see only the main access to the house, which is a large gate with a long driveway ornamented with pots of flowers—who could imagine that up above there is a little paradise of a villa?

The land around the tower and the other buildings has been reshaped into large terraces located at different levels and linked to each other by stairs and paths. From all of these terraces you will be able to glimpse different parts of the local scenery which includes brightly-coloured flowers, palms, pergolas covered with bougainvillea, and lemon groves that also fill the air with their perfume.
