Villa Simona

Simona Villa Balcony View 2

Villa Simona, located less than a mile from the town of Amalfi, is a modern, amenity-filled villa that hugs the picturesque Amalfi Coast. Relax amidst private terraced gardens and romantic verandas, then descend 200 rustic stone steps to various levels below the villa, where you can enjoy the loggia, private Jacuzzi tub, sauna, outdoor gym, and the private beach. Enjoy the best of both worlds on a sojourn that brings you to the very edge of the craggy shoreline—inside a stream-lined haven with an interior that pairs bright splashes of color with sleek black and white.

On the ground floor of the main villa, a private entrance gives you access to one queen bedroom and private bathroom. A spacious living room/dining area offers spectacular sea views, a full cocktail bar, and a professionally equipped kitchen. The first floor has four additional queen bedrooms with bathrooms (one with Jacuzzi tub). Just steps from the main entrance, an annex houses two queen suites with independent entrances. All bedrooms pamper guests with A/C, mini bar, satellite, plasma-screened TV, DVD player, phone, and high-speed Internet connection.

Villa Simona has local beach-side restaurants just a short, free water-taxi ride away. Parking is available on the road just outside the villa, however, there is also a parking garage in Amalfi (~€22 per day). Villa Simona offers the perfect location—privacy and tranquility by the sea, yet easy access to the main road for day excursions. It’s just a 5 minute drive to the center of Amalfi, 10 minutes to Ravello, and 25 minutes to picturesque Positano.
