Overview

Wedding Venue Pool
Wow Factor
Ideal for Kids Walk to Beach Walk to Village Romantic

Experience elegance and sophistication at this prestigious villa with the most stunning sea views, close to an idyllic village, one of the Amalfi coast’s hidden gems.

This exclusive residence is owned by a well-regarded and musical Neapolitan family who have the most discerning taste and classic style. Just admire the gracious living spaces with antique furnishings and the dining room with original Roman remains. All the time, arched windows frame picture-perfect vistas of the sea and doors lead out to grand and romantic terraces - Villa Aria Serena would also make a wonderful wedding venue.

The main part of the villa is home to six stylish bedrooms, each one with their own intricately tiled en suite bathroom and terrace. A further two bedrooms, simpler in style, can be found at the very top in the separate tower with yet more sea views from the charming balcony.

Follow the pretty stone steps down to the swimming pool, passing trailing bougainvillea and jasmine that add to the serene character of this superb home. Head back up to the main terrace and sip an aperitivo gazing out towards the sea or cool off with a limoncello made from local lemons as the sun sets beautifully in the horizon.

Listening to the bells ring from the local church just adds to the enchanting ambience of this special place. You can wander out to nearby restaurants or walk into part of the village if you don’t mind the hilly walk with many steps. It’s a remarkable village and wherever you climb you are always rewarded with the most sensational views.

Explore this part of the Amalfi coast by sea-kayak, discovering its caves and little islands, or perhaps take a trip to nearby Positano, just 8km by car although the approach by boat is far more impressive.

Swim from perfectly positioned platforms jutting out to the sparkling sea or discover some of the beautiful little beaches such as Fiordo di Furore, so loved by Federico Fellini. Villa Aria Serena really does offer guests every opportunity to explore the charms of this magical coastline.

In an elevated position above the glistening sea, Villa Aria Serena enjoys a privileged location with incredible views, close to the centre of an enchanting and picture-postcard coastal village.

You can wander out to the local neighbourhood with bustling restaurants with gorgeous sea-facing terraces. Stop off to visit the beautiful church close by and watch locals as they gather by the church’s piazza in early evening. There is also a small beach at this end of the village, via steps of course, with a lido where you can rent sun loungers and dine in the beachside restaurant in the summer.

The main part of the village itself is scattered across the hillside with many steps and terraces, always with the most wonderful vistas of the sea. The main part of the village itself is scattered across the hillside with many steps and terraces, always with the most wonderful vistas of the sea. As you explore the maze of lanes, look out for little shrines and admire beautiful villas of this serene village – after all, it was once the preferred summer destination of the Doge.

At the far end, around 2km away (via many steps and hills) is the main beach, a small but very picturesque spot with a handful of restaurants and a lido. As well as summer sea taxis and boat excursions, you will also find windsurfing and diving here as well as sea-kayaking excursions, a fantastic way to visit the surrounding coast and islands. There are also other places across the village from where you can swim with access via platforms or rocks.

Keen hikers can head inland towards Agerola via two thousand stairs with the most beautiful views! That said, you may prefer to explore the Amalfi coast by car or boat with so many idyllic places nearby. No doubt the magical and much-loved village of Positano (8km) will be on your to-do list, usually best reached by boat not just because of the views on your approach, but also due to the sheer number of visitors, many by car, in the summer.

Further along the coast heading east, Amalfi and Ravello are also stunning villages to visit or stay more local with the Furore and its incredible fjord (much loved by the Italian film director Fellini). The caves at Grotte di Suppraiano and Grotta dello Smeraldo are spectacular or enjoy the views and atmosphere at the square in front of Chiesa San Pancrazio Martire before perhaps attempting to discover Capo di Conca.

Whilst there is so much to see and many ways to relax along the Amalfi coast, if you feel like a change of scene then Mount Vesuvius is a fascinating day out, as are the Roman sites of Herculaneum and of course Pompeii, all around an hour by car with plenty of guided tours available.

Children of all ages will fall in love with the magic of the Amalfi coast.

Start off exploring your neighbourhood by visiting the local church with its sea-facing piazza - soak up the ambience in the early evening as locals gather and kids play football. There is a handful of restaurants nearby and a small beach, via lots of steps, with a lido and summer restaurant, about 650m away. Even closer you can access the sea via steep steps and rocks.

There are also many steps around the local village but you are rewarded with the most wonderful views. At the far end, around 2km away, the village’s small main beach has summer boat excursions, a sea taxi service as well as a diving, wind-surfing and sea-kayaking centre. Exploring the surrounding coast by sea-kayak on a guided excursion is an exceptional way to see the scenery.

Visit one of the enchanting caves nearby such as Grotte di Suppraiano or Grotta dello Smeraldo, or discover little beaches with platforms leading to the sparkling sea.

When not visiting one of the many idyllic villages of the Amalfi coast by car or boat, then spend the day learning all about Roman history at the fascinating sites of Herculaneum and Pompeii, around an hour away, perhaps combined with a tour of the mighty Mount Vesuvius.
