Fantasia di Amalfi
Fantasia di Amalfi is just what its name implies. An extraordinary synthesis of all the qualities we wish for in a villa on the Amalfi Coast — exceptional beauty, sweeping views, a private pool, and accessibility.
The villa has 12 bedrooms, making it one of the few large, luxury properties in the region. It can accommodate up to 24. However any size group can have exclusive use of the property when renting a minimum of 4 bedrooms.
It is a testament to this villa's design and overall ambience that it works so well whether for a group of friends, couples, or a big family. Wedding parties are also welcome. Any size group can be extremely comfortable here and enjoy it to the max.
The villa dominates a promontory on a prime stretch of coastline overlooking the villages of Amalfi on one side and Atrani on the other. From this impressive vantage point it is still only a 10 minute walk into the heart of the village of Amalfi where you will find the Coast's most diverse array of restaurants and shops, as well as Amalfi's enjoyable beaches. The village of Atrani will beckon you with its well known charms and local vibe.
From the dock of Amalfi the boats will take you to Positano, Capri, Salerno, even to Sorrento and Naples. The buses go to all points on the Coast and beyond, including Positano and Ravello.
Living Areas, Bedrooms, and Baths
The villa consists of 4 levels.
1) Main Entry & Living Level
The main feature here is the spacious living room and adjacent sitting rooms, all under a vaulted ceiling of delicately hand-painted frescoes in the Amalfitan style. Ensembles of comfortable seating and a wall-mounted flat-screen TV make for a congenial atmosphere. Also on this level is the large, fully equipped kitchen, positioned next to a separate dining room.
The entire level is framed on 3 sides with panoramic windows, giving it an open feeling and allowing the coast and sea to cast their spell indoors as well as out. Distinctive arched doorways lead out to the grand terrace where you experience the full force of the view over the village of Atrani and eastward down the coast.
The grand terrace is designed to be the user-friendly outdoor "living-room" of this great property. It has an array of tables, armchairs, and built-in banquets, as well as a separate covered area featuring a traditional stone oven - the kind that local families have used for generations for bread and pizza making.
2) Rooftop Level
This level is one short flight of stairs above the Main Entry & Living Level and consists of 1 bedroom and access to the villa's romantic rooftop terrace.
3) Main Bedroom Level
This level is one flight below the Main Entry & Living Level and consists of 7 bedrooms, including 1 suite with separate sitting area. All of these bedrooms have beautiful views of the coast and sea.
4) Garden Level
This level is one flight below the Main Bedroom Level and is the ground floor of the villa. It consists of 4 bedrooms, including 1 suite with separate sitting area. All of these bedrooms have views, although more limited than the level above.
All of the bedrooms have en suite baths*, queen beds**, air conditioning & heat, satellite TV, safe, and hair dryer.
*baths have either walk-in showers, or tubs with wall-mounted showers
**two single beds available on request
The pool is just beyond the grand terrace and is surrounded by a wooden deck and lawn. Plenty of lounge chairs are available to let you relax poolside or help you find that perfect spot to marvel at the views. Hint — at night you can turn on the pool's cascading colored lights to add an evocative dimension to your evenings.
How to Reach the Villa
The way to the villa begins with a flight of about 55 steps up to a picturesque walking path that leads to the outer gate of the property.
Once inside the property line there is a flight of about 85 steps, shaded under a pretty pergola, up to the garden level of the villa; then another 20 to the front door. The total number of steps is about 160.
