About the villa

A private walkway separates the real world from this beautifully converted 13th century watch tower, taking guests from the coastal hillside grounds, up a flight of stone steps and into the splendid main room. Air-conditioned and elegantly furnished in white, greys and gold, this very chic circular room is dominated by an iron-framed, king size four-poster bed, complemented by a big sofa and armchair, a fireplace, and a window seat in the thick fortress wall to look out over the sea. From here, stairs lead down to a spacious shower room, and up to an open roof terrace.A second stone paved terrace has breathtaking views, sun loungers, garden planting and a dining pergola, and links the tower to its colourful annexe, which houses a kitchenette, shower room, and an attractive sitting room, furnished with a sofa bed and little breakfast table. There is a swimming pool within the grounds of the small estate, which Il Faro shares with three sister-villas, and a semi-private beach is reached via a stepped pathway. Local shops and restaurants are about 300metres away.

About the area

Campania & the Amalfi Coast

Average weather

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.
