Villas on the Amalfi Coast: a long and historic tradition

The Amalfi Coast is one of the most picturesque settings in all of Italy, lending itself perfectly to indulgent luxury retreats. Villa Rufolo in Ravello is a magnificent palazzo that overlooks the town's main square, Piazza Vescovado. Built in the 13th century by the wealthy Rufolo family, from which the villa takes its name, it boasts incredibly lush and colorful gardens. The famous German composer Wagner was so inspired when he visited Villa Rufolo in 1880 that he composed the second act of his opera Parisfal there. The villa is open to the public and you can include a visit to Villa Rufolo on your Amalfi Coast itinerary.

Another incredible villa on the Amalfi Coast is Villa Cimbrone, also in Ravello. It was originally built in the 11th century and restored in the early 20th century by the British nobleman Lord Grimthorpe. It's known for its famous "Terrace of Infinity" viewpoint and its gardens are open to the public. Villa Cimbrone is also a fairytale-like setting that can host intimate weddings if you're getting married on the Amalfi Coast.

How to choose the perfect villa on the Amalfi Coast

With so many amazing villas to choose from on the Amalfi Coast, it can sometimes be difficult to narrow it down to the one that's perfect for your stay. One of the first things to take into consideration is the level of activity and privacy you desire. Some villas are closer to the nightlife and bustling town center of Positano, while others are located in more discreet and private areas further from the crowds. You should also take into account the budget you have available for your rental, the number of bedrooms you'll need based on how many are traveling in your party, and any additional perks and special services you'd like to have during your stay. Villa Principessa in Ravello, for example, has a spectacular infinity pool and a solarium at the water's edge, with direct access to the sea. Villa Mon Repos in Positano, on the other hand, offers guests a hot tub with vinotherapy as well as the rare amenity of a private garage with an elevator.

The perfect location for a villa on the Amalfi Coast

The Amalfi Coast is dotted with charming seaside towns and villages, so choosing just one can be a challenge! Two of the most popular towns on the Amalfi Coast are Positano and Ravello, both of which offer an abundant selection of restaurants, a variety of shops, and plenty of seaview cafès for enjoying a sunset drink. Smaller villages also have a lot to offer, especially if you're looking for a more secluded location for your luxury villa getaway. Take a look at the details of each of these options:


Positano is arguably one of the most famous towns along the Amalfi Coast, set dramatically on a cliffside sprinkled with a lively burst of colorful homes. Renting a luxury villa in Positano gives you lots of options, whether you're looking for historical outings or a chic retreat. The local Roman archeological museum (Museo Archaeologico Romano) is a must for history buffs, while the Spiaggia Grande beach—at 300 meters one of the largest on the Amalfi Coast—attracts an impressive crowd of celebrities and artists.


Ravello is known as the "balcony of the Amalfi Coast" because it's perched high above the coast about 3 km inland, set back from the seaside. This village is a quieter option for a luxury Amalfi Coast vacation, offering a refreshing break from the hustle and bustle of high tourist season. Also known as the "City of Music," Ravello was a favorite retreat of famous artists and intellectuals and hosts important cultural events such as the Ravello Festival, a summer music and arts festival.

Praiano and Vietri sul Mare

Praiano is a fishing village located halfway between Amalfi and Positano. Sunsets here are considered some of the most romantic of the entire Amalfi Coast. It also boasts two gorgeous beaches: Marina di Praia and Cala della Gavitella. Praiano is a traditional Amalfi Coast village with narrow winding lanes, pastel-colored homes, and majolica-tiled votive shrines scattered about.

Vietri sul Mare is world-famous for its handmade traditional Amalfi Coast ceramics. If you're looking to rent a villa near some of the largest beaches on the Amalfi Coast, this is your location. La Baia beach is a 400-meter stretch of sand that's perfect for sunbathing. This town is also strategically located near Salerno, making it an excellent base for exploring the Amalfi Coast by car.

FAQ - Frequently asked questions

Which villas on the Amalfi Coast have the best pools?

A luxury villa rental is made even more indulgent when it includes its own pool. In fact, some of the most beautiful pools are located on the grounds of luxury villa rentals. For a pool with a stunning view, opt for the terraced pool overlooking the sea at Villa Ferida. For the beauty of local traditional ceramics, the pool at Villa Lighea is decorated with hand-painted tiles. If, on the other hand, you're looking for a spa experience reminiscent of those of the ancient Romans, the 18th-century residence Palazzo Santa Croce includes the Salus pur Aquam spa, complete with a jacuzzi, sauna, a Tepidarium and Turkish baths. 

What is the best time to visit the Amalfi Coast?

When trying to decide the best time of year to visit the Amalfi Coast, take into consideration your preferences for the weather as well as crowds.
