We could not have been more pleased with our week stay at Villa Amalia in Cava de’ Tirreni. When we arrived at the villa we were amazed at the beauty, tranquility and gorgeous gardens. What you see in the pictures is absolutely what is waiting for you. We were met by Antonio and his son Carlo which both live close by. They showed us around the amazing villa and answered all of our questions. They could not have been any more helpful during our entire stay. We also were lucky to meet Antonella Carlo’s girlfriend and the namesake of the property Amalia who made us some amazing food during our stay. We had 6 family members meet us there for the last 4 days. I cannot tell you the unforgettable memories that we all made at the villa. We hired the sailboat for a day, sailed the Amalfi coast, ate lunch in Positano and had so much fun. We took another day trip by ferry from Salerno to Capri stopping in Sorrento on the way back. The center of Cava has great shops and we all had our favorite meal there out of all the places we ate it was hands down the most authentic. The restaurant name is Ristorante Don Giulio e Masaniello. We enjoyed the time spent on our day trips but the most joy we had was the peacefulness and relaxation at the villa with great food, wine, pool and laughs. This villa has so much history along with all of the modern amenities needed. The bedrooms each have wonderful air conditioners that work very well. We will definitely be returning to the villa for future trips. We extend our many thanks and appreciation to Antonio, Amalia, Carlo, Antonella and Placedo which takes care of the property so well. We look forward to seeing you all again!!

I stayed in the beautiful Villa Amalia for two weeks with my family and with the families of my two sisters. We were 14, including my 86-year-old mother, unfortunately in a wheelchair. I would like to say immediately that the villa is more beautiful than you can see in the photos published and the external and internal spaces are larger than you can imagine from the photos. We had four cars inside the villa and added a minibus when visiting my brother who lives in Salerno, 10 minutes drive from the villa. The swimming pool completely covered in white marble is splendid and is very large. We all, including my brother's family, were free to swim together without space problems. The owner Antonio was always very kind and always available to our every request. Placido, the handyman man was truly exceptional, he every morning at 7:00 he took care with discretion of cleaning all the outdoor spaces of the tropical garden and the pool. Everything was always perfectly tidy and clean. We were surprised by the antique furniture, the important art gallery and above all by the extravagant idea to put in all the bathrooms of important ancient works of art. The kitchen is of very modern conception, designed by Antonio in the 90s. It has the shape of a circumference open to one side, so that the operator in the middle has everything at hand. Villa Amalia enjoys breathtaking views. It is located in the center of all the most important tourist destinations and is just 10 minutes drive from the most beautiful beaches of the Amalfi Coast. Next to the entrance gate there is a small market very well stocked with all basic necessities, cigarettes and spirits. Every morning we bought fresh bread and everything we needed for breakfast. There is also a public bus stop every 45 minutes. The villa is a 15-minute walk from the city center of Cava where there are hundreds of restaurants, bars, nightclubs and shops that cheer the streets full of people with lights and music throughout the night. In the evening the Villa Amalia with all the lights on, takes on a fantastically luxurious appearance. I can not describe the beauty of the pool lights that are reflected in a shaky way on all the outdoor spaces and in the beautiful bedroom that overlooks the pool. I will certainly recommend this exceptional villa to all my friends and I thank Antonio with all my relatives for giving us the chance to live a fairy tale

We had a enjoyable vacantion in Cava de' Tirreni. The area is perfect for daytrips to Amalfi Coast, Salerno, Neaples or Pompei. There's a Strada Statale that links the city to Costiera Amalfitana in a 10 minutes drive. A highway is very close, for longer trips. If sunbathing or relaxing by the pool is your thing, the villa is quiet, clean and filled with antiques. The swimming pool is cleaned daily. There are four bedrooms on the upper floor, the beds were particullary nice ( I can't remember since I slept so good ) and a nice terrace with a astonishing view of the sea. The only thing that we didn't liked was the satellite receiver, with only CNN, NBC and BBC to watch. It was the second week at the US Open and we weren't able to see anything.

The views from villa are amazing. The pool area is fantastic, large pool, plenty of outside space, cleaned daily. Villa itself very interesting with its history. We used the 4 main bedrooms upstairs. Beds were comfy. We generally left the shutters open at night although there were also air con units in these bedrooms. Could have done with a few more tables in the bedrooms but wardrobe space was good. António or staff were on site each day and very keen to ensure we had a good stay. Only problem we had was the Mosquitos, remember repellent.

Upon driving through the gated entrance you are comforted that the villa is nearly exactly as advertised. Beautiful pool and patio...we spent nearly all our "home" time here, modern bathrooms and traditional Italian bedrooms. Certainly a feel of luxury coupled with an owner and assistant who were committed to making us feel at home. Our family of fourteen cooked most of our evening meals in the modern kitchen and we enjoyed the excellent wine provided by Antonio. The winding, narrow road was a bit of a challenge the first day, but we quickly became experts and most of our days sightseeing. Upon returning to the villa, the children couldn't wait to jump in the marble pool while we adults sat under the vine covered trellis enjoying our wine. Just outside the gate was a small store that offered fresh bread daily and several other "essentials. Beds were comfortable, linens were fresh and our stay was outstanding...we already are discussing a return visit.

Villa Amalia is a beautiful property. The views are outstanding, the villa itself is charming and hosts Antonio and Amalia were so accommodating. Antonio set up a cooking lesson at the villa with his chef and also a full day of sailing the Amalfi Coast.

Great villa in a brilliant location for the rest of the Amalfi Coast. Very warm welcome received from Antonio and his family which was marked by a welcome package as well as an Italian home cooked meal on Day 2!Antonio was an excellent host and despite all our questions, he was quite happy to accommodate us.Kids did not want to leave the pool and we only wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy all the amenities! Villa is in a great location as a base to enjoy day trips to Amalfi & Capri. Highly recommend this villa. Grazie Antonio

Villa Amelia exceeded all our expectations! From the moment we arrived we felt at home having been warmly greeted by our gracious host Antonio who had also provided a generous welcome pack of wine and local produce. Although 12 of us in our group, we never felt crowded as the Villa has ample space, plenty of bedrooms plus games room and huge well maintained pool with diving board. The Villa is beautifully furnished with interesting nooks, antiques, ample outdoor dining and also quiet places to sip an early morning coffee whilst surveying panoramic views overlooking the sea and local village. The Villa is perfectly situated for touring the Amalfi coast and local places of interest. Cava de Tirreni, the local town, has the perfect mix of superb shops, really good restaurants and supermarkets. What a wonderful surprise on our last evening, we were given a wonderful authentic Italian meal by our hosts lovely wife...delicious! Our only wish was that we had booked for longer and we will definitely be back!

Our family had a wonderful vacation in Villa Amalia. The villa is lovely and pool was very refreshing. Everything was in great condition. Antonio was gracious and helpful. We loved the village of Cava de Tirreni. The people were friendly and there were plenty of restaurants and cute shops.

I stayed here with a group of 11 friends and couldn't have asked for a better welcome. Before we even arrived, the email correspondence was quick, accurate and the description of the villa spot on. When we finally arrived Italian cured meats, bread, cheese and red wine greeted us on the kitchen table to eat after our long journey from London. We were greeted warmly and given a tour around this beautiful and spacious villa. The pool is amazing! A real highlight of the place. The villa has more than enough room to accommodate 12 adults and you could even squeeze children in comfortably as the room are a good size. I would advise a rental car. It's a perfect base to explore the almafi coast without the fuss of the Almafi traffic on your door step (the roads get very crowded and traffic awful in the summer) but the location definitely needed a car. We were lucky to avoid the traffic every day as we were a little further out, which my party liked. We explored Almafi, Positano, Sorrento and some did the walk of the gods. Some of my group took the train, with ease, to Pompei. Others stayed in the villa and enjoyed the pool. It really is a stunning part of Italy. Antonio and James, will help arrange anything you need. Pizza's delivered to the villa and an Italian cell phone in case you get into difficulty with mobile numbers on it. We needed a taxi transfer to a wedding in Sorrento which was gratefully arranged without fuss. Thank you. Overall, a fantastic villa for a group of close friends but would equally suit a group of families too. Lots of space (including a pool table, table football) and lots of chairs/tables outside to eat. Plus, towels to use. We ate breakfast outside everyday and the evenings we cooked in, ate by the table by the pool (the pool lights up at night). The kitchen comes well stocked with lots of plates, cutlery, glasses, coffee pots, tea pots and lots of pots and pans. It also has a double fridge and a dish washer. Should you need to, a washing machine is available. You settle the electricity bill at the end of the week, which worked out at around 170 euros for 11 people. Include that in your costing's. Highly recommend this villa and my party would like to thank Antonio and James for such a hospitable and welcoming stay to this wonderful part of Italy.
