It's just a short drive from Villa Lika, a three-story, four-bedroom luxury villa with a sun-kissed terrace and arched windows that overlook the Gulf.
Positano is another charming Amalfi Coast town, noted for its colorful structures. Its craggy hillside and for being a favorite vacation spot for many stars of the stage and screen. You can vacation like one of these celebrities by renting a charming Positano villa.

Ravello is built on the hillside that climbs steeply from the sea and is known for its 13th-century cathedral, its vibrant artists colony and its annual music festival. One of the best ways to enjoy the many charms of Ravello is to stay in a luxury Ravello villa like Villa Diana, a six-bedroom, six-bath villa on the outskirts of town, with a generous terrace and a private, over-sized swimming pool.

For waterfront elegance, Covo dei Saraceni offers that plus an award-winning dining room. Palazzo Alvino in Ravello rounds out our collection of Amalfi Coast luxury hotels and evokes the beauty and elegance of 19th century Italy with period antiques, beautiful gardens and, of course, that spectacular view of the sea.
