Properties on the Amalfi Coast

Apartments in Amalfi Coast

The Amalfi Coast has become famous throughout the world for the unique beauty of its hilly green landscapes, sheer cliffs and clear blue sea, not to mention its spectacular corniche road which twists around, revealing secluded bays and promontories

Stunningly beautiful, Positano has made the transition from sleepy fishing village into one of Italy's most popular resort towns. Built into the steep seaside slope, it offers amazing views, excellent shops and restaurants. From becoming popular with writers and artists in the 1950's, it has lost none of its charm. Positano is a pedestrian town (with many stairs - be warned!) and its pretty pastel colored or white-washed houses, with flowers and bougainvillea vines, make it very picturesque. There's a bus along the one main street that you can take up or down the hill. Porters are available at the start of the pedestrian zone to help with luggage.You won't need a car in Positano, but if you do bring one, there is a central car park which can be booked or, alternatively, you can opt to take taxis or tours to visit Praiano, Amalfi, Ravello, Pompeii, Sorrento, or other parts of the Amalfi coast.  There are also water taxis for transport to nearby villages and beaches.

Many of the Amalfi Coast villas and apartments to rent we have to offer are right in Positano, some high on the cliffside with absolutely magnificent views.  We also feature apartments and villas to rent in charming Praiano,a seaside resort that has retained its atmosphere as a quiet fishing town throughout the centuries, and situated between Positano and Amalfi. Praiano's main beach is the small, enchanting Marina di Praia, surrounded by cliffs, the Torre a Mare still standing guard over the town and coastline as it has for centuries.

Sorrento enjoys a privileged location on a long cliff, amidst lemon and olive groves overlooking the sea about 50 kilometres south of Naples. The old town is charming with its narrow streets, with artisan and craft shops selling local delights such as pictures in inlaid wood, Limoncello and other lemon and olive oil products. Sights to see here include the Church of San Francesco, next to a 14th century arched cloister and the Sedil Dominova, dating from 1349 and with its 16th century 'trompe l’oeil' cupola.  The Correale Museum is also worth a visit, as is the Museo Bottega della Tarsialignea, the woodcarving museum and workshop, open in the mornings.  Public gardens, along the clifftops, offer great walks and views of the sea, as far as Vesuvius in the distance. For some of the very best coastal views imaginable, take a walk along the Via San Francesco until you reach the Villa Comunale Park. From the gardens, it is possible to take a lift down to the seaside. Our Sorrento villas are either in the town, or on the beautiful Sorrento peninsula with its stunning sea views.

From Sorrento, ferries go to Naples and the island of Capri as well as other Amalfi Coast villages, including Positano throughout the summer. There are also buses and trains to Pompeii, 17 miles away. The closest airport is Naples, 45 kms away.
