About the villa
A gorgeous little seaside escape, Villa Fraunberg was built as a summer retreat and has all the charm of a classic ‘old Positano’ cottage. A five minute stroll from bars, restaurants and beaches in the picture-postcard town, its cliff-side perch is reached by a stone stairway, draped with bougainvillea and gated at its entry from the coastal footpath. The climb is rewarded by exquisite views and a wonderfully easy ambience. White-walled, indoors and out, the villa is naturally cooled by high vaulted ceilings, comfortably furnished with stylish simplicity, and splashed with sunshine colours in the cheerful country kitchen and the en suite bathrooms, each replete with hand-painted tiles from Vietri. Two bedrooms occupy the upper level, one with twin beds, the other a double, and both with blue tiled floors for a maritime feel, enhanced by brilliant bay views from the glass doors and shared balcony. On the ground floor, the spacious living room has big sofas and a rustic dining table, and double doors lead out to the panoramic terrace, furnished for al fresco lounging and dining, framed with a vine-cloaked pergola, and facing the sea.

From the epic views over the Bay of Salerno to the fishing towns turned resorts that hang in tiny clusters from the cliffs – Italy's southern Riviera looks exactly as you’d hoped. Campania really is as seductive, dramatic and cinematic as it gets. There’s glamorous Positano, clifftop Ravello and the sun-kissed shoreline of lemon-loving Sorrento, alongside the idyllic islands of Capri and Ischia, just offshore. A villa holiday on the Amalfi Coast is sleepy yet stylish – the urban kick comes courtesy of Naples, an unexpectedly elegant and expressive cultural centre of ancient art, historic masterpieces and extraordinary pizza.
