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.

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.
