About the villa
Just to the east of Positano centre, this charming villa is furnished in country house style and shares the terraced hillside gardens of a small private estate. Within the villa, a well-equipped kitchen serves an effortlessly elegant sitting / dining room, replete with rich woods and cool toned fabrics, and there are two bedrooms, each with en suite facilities. But it is the al fresco space that adds the wow factor here, a big open terrace overlooking the town and the sea, where a rustic style pergola, draped in climbing plants, shades the dining table, and flowers spill from pots and planters to create a colourful garden. A series of stone steps lead down through the grounds to the swimming pool and to a little beach, both shared with three other villas on the estate. One of these, Piccola Rosa, is positioned just above this house and could be booked together with Bella Rosa to offer privacy with proximity for a group of up to six family or friends. Shops and restaurants are just 300 metres along a stepped footpath, and the main beach is a fifteen minute walk away.

It is no exaggeration to say that the 50km or so of coastline on the southern side of the Sorrentine Peninsula is among the most famous stretches in the world: the Amalfi Coast. The fishing towns turned resorts hanging from cliffs or wedged into coves; the azure views over the Bay of Salerno—it all looks exactly as you hoped. For centuries travellers have paused on the island of Ischia to soak in the thermal springs and laze by the sea. A Amalfi Coast villa holiday’s urban kick comes courtesy of Naples, home to museums of ancient art and, of course… pizza.
