Stretching across the cobalt waters of the bay of Positano, the dreamlike views from Villa Bernardina are not easy to forget. Combine them with an idyllic terrace, charming interiors and an enviable location and you get one of the loveliest villas on the Amalfi Coast.

The epic scenery is undoubtedly the standout feature of this villa and there’s nowhere better to soak it all in than the large terraces. Collapse into a deckchair, relax on a sun lounger or dine al-fresco as you admire the panoramic sea views. Or why not hit the outdoor treadmill? You’ll be hard-pressed to find a better spot for running! As night falls, the spacious hot tub becomes illuminated and offers a wonderful setting for watching the sun go down.

Inside is just as spectacular as out, with traditional touches meeting modern luxuries to create an elegant and authentic feel. A large open-plan living and dining area complete with ceramic wall and floor tiles is a fantastic place to enjoy each other’s company, perhaps over a meal or game of cards. The patterned tiles and bright colours extend to each of the villa’s three bedrooms, which all boast a queen size bed, TV and en-suite bathroom. 

Beyond your doorstep the delightful town of Praiano awaits, with supermarkets, restaurants and bars accessible on foot via steep paths and lots of steps! A 10-minute drive brings you to the little rocky beach at Marina di Praia where you can splash in the sea or take a boat ride across the bay. 

Further along the coast sit the beautiful towns of Amalfi and Positano. Featuring colourful cliffside buildings, narrow winding streets and numerous gelaterias, they make for an enchanting day out. 

Sorrento is 22km away and definitely worth a visit. There are piazzas and shops to explore, great restaurants and a popular beach. Plus, from the port here and in Positano you can take a boat to the seriously stunning island of Capri – one of the highlights of the Amalfi Coast.

Perched on the clifftops, the seaside town of Praiano is one of the prettiest on the Amalfi Coast. Less crowded than some of its neighbours, it’s a lovely place to wander around and boasts a fantastic selection of shops, cafés and restaurants scattered along the hillside. These can be reached on foot via many steps and steep paths, which offer up excellent vistas of the sea. 

The town’s small rocky beach is just 3.5km away and is a sublime place to spend the day, with restaurants hugging the cliffsides and azure waters for swimming in. Why not also hire kayaks and enjoy some sightseeing as you paddle around the bay or try a spot of windsurfing and scuba diving?  

The nearby town of Positano can be reached by car in 20 minutes or by taking a short boat ride and also features two beautiful beaches, Fornillo and Marina Grande. A blend of sandy and pebbly, they are lined with summer beach bars and have fun activities like diving and boat rental available. Known as the pearl of the Amalfi Coast, Positano is famed for its dramatic clifftop position, its pastel and terracotta hues and its pretty windy streets. The Byzantine Church of Santa Maria Assunta is not to be missed while the smart boutiques and lively markets are great fun to explore.

From Positano you can catch a boat to the famous island of Capri. Here you will find deluxe shops, luxurious beach bars and classy restaurants as well as outstanding natural beauty. The rugged landscape, quaint harbours and strikingly blue sea all make for the picture-perfect scene. When visiting the island make sure to go to the Blue Grotto, a sea cave where the cobalt colour of the water illuminates the cave walls.

Just 22km away, Sorrento overlooks the Bay of Naples and is renowned for its café-lined streets, busy marinas and juicy lemons! Stroll around the historic old town and discover the beautiful 14th-century Church of Saint Francesco before admiring the bell tower of the Cathedral of Saint Filippo. The Piazza Tasso is an idyllic place to sip on an Aperol spritz or sample some of Sorrento’s delicious cuisine. 

The historic site of Pompei is a 45km drive from the villa and a must-visit and. From the ancient city you can reach Mount Vesuvius, the still-active volcano which erupted 2000 years ago and devastated Pompei. There are various tours and hikes available and it makes for a fascinating excursion.

  • Amazing views

    on 20/02/2024

    The house sits on top of the cliff and has amazing views of the sea and church with beautiful decorations. All the amenities inside, including bathroom / kitchen / bedrooms are all top quality. The best highlight was the indoor / outdoor small gym with bicycles and treadmills - working out facing the ocean and sunrise was such a wonderful treat. The pictures don’t do any justice to truly how wonderful the villa is. We had a great time. The local concierge, was super helpful and very efficient. Praiano is a quiet and tranquil town. It is not the place to be if you are looking for tons of activities and night life. But it is a perfect place if you are looking to enjoy the natural beauty and a peaceful break from busy life.
