The villa is on the top of one of the steep hills by the sea which mold the wild and picturesque stretch of high coast which goes from Punta Campanella to Positano. You will be about 300 meters (about 984 feet) above sea level.
The villa is a large countryside house built with blocks of grey tuff. It is surrounded by the green of the olive groves, and it faces the vast blue of the sea. Red cranesbills and several succulent plants shine in the sun and dangle from several vases placed on the staircases, porticoes, and terraces.
The house is in the middle of a sloping terraced land where olive trees, grape vines, and fruit trees grow. You will reach the house by walking down a private road embellished by bushes of yellow cranesbills and roses.
From every angle of the garden you will have a pleasant and wide view of the sea.
The house is in fact in the middle of a large valley which gently leans facing towards the sea and which is covered in silvery crowns of olive trees and lush vegetation. Amidst the green you will notice the red roof tiles of farm houses and really small inhabited areas. The mild verdant slope is abruptly interrupted by the blue of the sea as the hill seems to plunge from high above into the waters down below, about one km (about 0.7 miles) away as if seen in a straight line from the villa.
From the sea, this stretch of high coast looks impervious, wild and quite picturesque since it is adorned by the presence of two islets, Isca and Vetara.
In this small paradise, where the air and perfume of the sun-drenched countryside merge with the fresh and salt-scented air which emanates from the sea, you will find a mild and salubrious climate all year round.
While playing or resting outdoors in the sun or in the shade, you will have an unlimited view of the sea and the Gulf of Salerno.
The house has old origins, and in the middle of a large room on the ground floor you will be able to see, carefully preserved, an old oil mill for olives with grinding wheels of stone and also old objects of everyday countryside life.
