A luxurious 3 bed villa, sweeping, sun-drenched terraces, a panoramic pool and a sun deck from where to dive into the sea washing Italy's spectacular Amalfi Coast.
No it's not a dream: it's Villa Principessa.
Be warned: once you've discovered this gorgeous gem in the seaside district of Ravello, you'll never want to leave
Each of the villa's bedrooms has an ensuite bathroom with hydromassage tub or chromotherapy shower, and either a terrace or balcony from where to admire the sea.
More like an apartment than a bedroom, the room in the mansard even has its own kitchenette.
The large, light-filled living room furnished with comfy sofas is the villa's much-loved chill-out zone. This is where holidaymakers crash out after a day's sightseeing, listening to music, watching the television or surfing the internet.
In the evenings, you can eat out, in any of the amazing little restaurants close to the villa, or eat in - you'll find everything you need in the villa's professional kitchen.
Villa Principessa is part of Amalfi Vacation: an exclusive collection of villas and apartments, all of which occupy prime locations on Italy's Amalfi Coast
It's not easy to find a holiday home on the Amalfi Coast which has both a private pool and direct access to the sea. Which is one of the reasons why Villa Principessa is such a sought-after place to stay.
The infinity pool, which, at first glance, seems to merge completely into the crystal blue sea, is one of the most beautiful you'll ever see. When they're not lingering by the pool, guests might easily be found lounging on the sea edge solarium, soaking up the Mediterranean sun.

Not everybody knows that there's a part of Ravello by the sea: Marmorata. And it's here on the rocks directly above the sea that Villa Principessa is located.
Amalfi is less than 2kms from the villa. From Amalfi you can quickly reach all the other towns dotted along this spectacular stretch of the Italian coastline: Atrani, Positano, Furore, Minori, Maiori, Cetara and Vietri sul Mare.
Immediately north of the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento, Pompei and Herculaneum all make great day trips. Naples, and the city's ports, train stations and airport, are just over an hour's drive away.
