**This year, from Aug. 1st to Oct.10th 2020, Villa dei Signori is accepting rentals of maximum 7 people only.** For rentals beginning in June 2021 we will, again, be offering the entire villa, at our normal occupancy of 10 people.
This big, beautiful villa, called VILLA dei SIGNORI, is the ideal choice for a group of friends or family wanting to have a dream vacation on the Amalfi Coast. It has a special ambiance and offers a wonderfully enjoyable experience of this awesome region. The views are vast throughout the property, the gardens are abundant with flowers and fruits, the terraces and balconies provide the quintessential indoor-outdoor experience, and the pool is big and refreshing. Our guests are enchanted upon their arrival and then have to tear themselves away to leave.
The villa is located in the residential and commercial center of Furore, one of the beloved villages of the Coast between Positano and Amalfi; more specifically between Praiano and Conca dei Marini, absolutely central and a very convenient location to anything you wish to see and do. The beaches and public dock of the Village of Amalfi are only a 17 minute drive away (6kms), and Positano is 30 minutes. Access to the villa is easy, parking is nearby and there are only 35 steps to the entrance.
This stately home is situated within a huge landscaped garden of abundant flowers and fruit trees, a gazebo with ceramic dining table, and a big pool with surrounding deck.
To quote one of our past guests who captured the experience so well, "the villa is run in a thoughtful and personal way with many nice touches and luxuries. The terraced gardens are a treasure trove of fruits and vegetables; lemons, plums, and pomegranates to name a few. The pool is saltwater, with stunning views both ways along the Coast".
The bedrooms are distributed on 3 floors (levels) - each floor with its own entrance to the garden.
The "Main bedroom Level" has 3 queen-bedded rooms and 1 French-bedded room, and the top floor or "Roof Level" has a French-bedded room and a queen-bedded room. This makes a total of 6 bedrooms. (The Pool Apt, which is a 7th bedroom, is not being offered in 2020).
Here is the recap for 2020: 4 bedrooms with queen(matrimonial) beds and 2 bedrooms with "French beds". French beds are over-sized single beds which are very comfortable for 1 adult or 2 small children.
There is an en-suite bath to 1 of the queen-bedded rooms. The other 3 full baths are either adjacent or across from the other bedrooms.
On the Main Floor where the Main Entrance is you will find the gracious Living-Dining room, a large, well-equipped kitchen, and floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open onto the evocative blue-tiled balcony. The balcony is furnished with a very large sun-umbrella and a variety of chairs, loveseats, and coffee tables so that you can relax into the wonderfulness of this place at any time of the day or night.
There is another kitchen-dining area in the Top Floor (Roof level). This top floor is charming but more simply decorated than the rest of the villa. It has skylights which provide lots of light and air and a view of the mountains, but no windows facing the sea.
A group of up to 9 guests enjoys the maximum comfort the property has to offer. If you are a group of 10 contact us to determine if the property is suitable for you.
From the pool, the garden, and the several terraces and balconies you have a spectacular view of the sea and the marvelous coastline.
A very special feature of the property is a bistro-like structure in the garden that we called "the Cottage", which houses an authentic wood-fired oven, cooktop, and BBQ.
Many visitors to the Amalfi Coast seek out venues to have pizza-cooking lessons. At Villa dei Signori you can have a pizza-cooking party right in your own backyard! You can do it yourself or we can send a Pizzaiolo (pizza chef) to create a party for you.
Villa dei Signori is nestled in the heart of the historic village of Furore - well-known for its friendly and hospitable residents no less than for its famous wines. The well-known Marissa Cuomo winery and its restaurant Bacco is less than 1 mile away. There are country restaurants and fine-dining restaurants throughout all of Furore, several within walking distance to Villa dei Signori.
Furore offers a uniquely warm and local feeling and a glimpse into the authentic traditions of the Coast..
The gates to the property are only 35 steps from the road above (where you park). There are an additional 40 steps alongside the exterior of the villa from which you can enter to each floor. There are another 20 steps to the Pool and the Pool apartment-bedroom. There is a total of about 65 steps from the main gate to the pool level.
Parking is very nearby, along the road above, and almost always free.
Essential shops including a great grocery carrying wine, local produce and prepared foods, a casual restaurant and enoteca, and a full-service coffee bar are within easy walking distance.
The village of Amalfi and several of the Coast's best beaches are less than a 17 minute drive away. In Amalfi you'll find a wonderful array of restaurants, services, and historical sites including the Cathedral and Cloister, and the ancient Papermill Museum. At the dock of Amalfi the public boats and ferries ply the waters to Positano, Capri, Sorrento, Salerno and some of the smaller villages along the Coast.
The Sita bus stops within 50 meters of the property. If you don't want to use your car all the time you can hop on the bus and be in Amalfi Village in 20 minutes. It's very convenient. We can also offer information on private transportation services.
Villa dei Signori is user-friendly and very safe for young children.
It is an all-around delight!
