Amalfi Coast, At a Glance
This may sound biased because we’re a huge fan of Amalfi Coast. However, it really is worth visiting. One of Italy’s most popular gems, Amalfi Coast, is where you’ll find a dramatic coastline, charming seaside villages, and some of the world’s tastiest seafood. You should spend at least a week truly exploring the coast and every nook and cranny. Couples love spending some romantic time here as there are plenty of romantic spots to visit. Additionally, it’s also a popular destination for families who want to feel the warmth of the Amalfi sun and explore the unique culture. It’s also a nice destination if you want to have a long weekend trip before exploring the top things to do in Naples, as it’s less than two hours away by car. Here’s a travel guide by Expedia!

Say hello to Villa Ambita, the first option on this list. Unlike other luxury villas on the Amalfi Coast, this holiday home is significantly cheaper. This beautiful four-bedroom place is set on the hillsides that surround Positano, one of the most beautiful places on the Amalfi Coast you must visit. The views of the waters are nothing short of breathtaking. We often lost track of time when we were relaxing on the terrace and hypnotized by nature.
In addition to that, this place was also recently renovated to the highest quality, making it a nice pick for a peaceful Amalfi Coast escape. The central hub of this property is none other than its imposing living area, complete with a dining area, lounge area, and elegant white pillars. We were honestly surprised by how well-maintained the villa is. Every part is spotless and comfy.
If you go upstairs, you’ll find three of the four bedrooms. Each of them comes with access to a panoramic terrace, and all of them feature all the must-have in-room amenities. Meanwhile, the fourth bedroom is set on the ground floor, with its own en suite bathroom. It’s our favorite as we didn’t have to share our bathroom with the rest. To feel the warmth of the sun, we would head to the terrace and relax. There, you’ll find an al fresco dining area that can accommodate up to eight people.

We also think this Amalfi Coast villa is a nice option for those who love socializing. Though it offers you privacy, the villa is far from isolated.

On top of that, we love that the villa can be accessed directly from the coastal road, so you don’t have to deal with difficult steps.

We also often found ourselves taking a dip in the infinity swimming pool. It was the most relaxing thing we could do at the villa, and you should try it too!
Near the BBQ, you’ll find a sizable dining area where you may gather with your loved ones to have a delectable meal that the private chef has prepared.

When we first entered the villa, we admired how sleek and dramatic it looked. Meanwhile, the fully equipped kitchen is smartly laid out around a central island to make the most of the available space.

Sure, staying at one of the luxury villas on the Amalfi Coast is a fantastic experience. However, not all of them offer that homey atmosphere that some of us long for. If that’s the case, consider booking Carmana! This cozy hideaway is the perfect option for those who want a fun-filled vacation. We had much fun discovering the local cuisines and wines around the villa. Additionally, we also had the chance to take a boat and tour the Amalfi Coast. We sure weren’t holding back when it came to immersing ourselves in the local colors and scents! Also, we’d occasionally relax poolside at the villa to rejuvenate our minds and body.
In addition to that, we also fancy the villa’s low-key social spaces, which are located on the ground floor. They consist of a dining area that can accommodate up to 10 people and a lounge area with a huge L-shaped sofa and a big smart TV. Also on the same floor is a fully equipped kitchen and a bathroom. The kitchen is well-equipped, and we often cook ourselves a hearty breakfast there.
Furthermore, this property offers five bedrooms, all with cozy queen-sized beds. They are charmingly furnished, and some have private balconies that offer lovely sea views. At first, we didn’t know which room to choose. But in the end, we figured out it didn’t matter as each of them was equally cozy.

We think it’s a rarity among villas of such size.
Furthermore, this villa features a stunning living area, which comes complete with a lovely dining area. While the indoor dining area is nothing short of amazing, we preferred to dine outdoors as we could also enjoy the breathtaking views of the turquoise water. We would always have our favorite cocktail ready and enjoy our time on the terrace.
As we said earlier, there are only two bedrooms on the property. Of course, we had to stay in the Master Bedroom. It’s located on the first floor and can be accessed using an elevator. We had a blast as the room allowed us to wake up to the gorgeous sea views. Also, both rooms come with their own bathrooms. However, you should note that only the master bedroom has a shower.
