Villa Albarosa B is a gracious house on the coast which features a terrace, a patio, and a private garden with a breathtaking view of the sea and the coast. It has access to a swimming-pool.

Villa Albarosa B has a double bedroom, a bathroom with shower, a living-room with a kitchenette and a sofa, a patio, a large terrace, and a garden.
The villa is located on a prominent stretch of coast between Vietri sul Mare and Amalfi, 5 km (about 3.1 miles) away from Vietri sul Mare.
From Vietri you have the beginning of the coastal road along which you will see all the famous towns of the Amalfi Coast one after the other as you pass by. After running along the coast and going past Amalfi and Positano, you will be able to arrive in Sorrento no later than in an hour.
Villa Albarosa is a simple one-storey cottage nestled in a terraced land in a prominent position. It is placed before the blue sky and the blue sea, and it is surrounded by the vivid green of a lawn and the lush Mediterranean vegetation.
The cottage is divided in two halves (parts), reason why you will find two same-size apartments, Villa Albarosa A and Villa Albarosa B.
As soon as you arrive on the terraces, your eyes will meet the wide arch of the Gulf of Salerno: on the right you will have a picturesque glimpse of the Amalfi Coast, while on the left and further away you will see the mountainous coast of the Parco Nazionale del Cilento (National Park of Cilento).
And if you look down right below, you will see a long and steep stretch of verdant coast due to cultivations of lemons which seem to plunge into the sea. And at sea level, you will see from the above the little village of Vietri Sul Mare, unmistakable for its wide beach of grey sand and the large shining majolica dome and bell tower of its cathedral.
The air is transparent and perfume-filled, and the colors are bright: by looking around near the villa, you will be able to see bits of the roofs of some houses immersed in the surrounding green.
You will soon realize, just as I did, that this place is an angle of paradise. Lucky the one who can live here forever! …
The villa is found inside an age-old seven-hectare farm still fenced in by a high and old stone wall. The terrain descends from up above the coast down towards the sea, and it is cultivated with lemon pergolas characteristic of the Amalfi Coast. On the highest part of the land, there's an age-old main villa and other three small ones which are about 100 meters (about 328 feet) away one from another.
The agricultural farm, besides growing lemons, produces the famous Limoncello liqueur and other liqueurs made of fennel and laurel. You can taste these and other products at the main villa.
The owners live in the place and will be at your disposal with all their discretion in case you need any help. You can book dinners at the main villa or even book guided tours or excursions on boats.
