This is a wonderful property with lots of history and character in every corner of it. The beds are comfortable, the views outstanding, and the pool refreshing! Villa Amalia is just across the street from a local bus to downtown Cava de Tirreni, which is a nice little town with an historic colonnaded shopping street, and not particularly touristy. You will see what local life is like here - we heard only a little English or other languages spoken in out two weeks there, but easy enough to get by with smiles and a good try. António and Carlo were so helpful in every way, and Placido (gardener and handyman) can help with any language issues. As Carlo and Antonio live just 10 meters up the hill, it’s easy to ask for help or advice. Whether it was a ride in Antonio’s Lamborghini for the kids, or a homemade meal by Amalia herself (Antonio’s wife), or help shipping something we couldn’t fit in the car to our next destination in Italy, we felt taken care of here. I highly recommend it for a family stay.

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.

Swimming pool was huge and lovely. The nearby historical town of Cava de Terrini is lovely with lots of restaurants, bars and coffee shops

We have just returned from a week at Villa Amalia and we couldn't be happier! The villa is absolutely beautiful, situated up in the hills over looking the Amalfi Coast. The town of Cava de Tirreni is stunning, just a short drive from the villa and not in the guide books, so it's not too touristy which is a real bonus! 11 of us went and all had a fabulous time. We have no complaints and intend to visit again!

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

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.

This has been a trip that our family has dreamed about for years. Professor Antonio is a most gracious and accommodating host. From the moment that we stepped into the villa we were awed by the beauty of the grounds and home. Each room expresses a style that is meant for comfort and reflects a warmth that invites you to stay. Antonio has taken us to many places that are not tourist attractions, that have given us a chance to interact with the Italian people. James, the gardener, has always greeted us with a smile and a helping hand. James has also been very instrumental in being our communication link to Antonio and others. We are all glad that we have had the chance to get to know him. Our family chose to have a meal prepared by Mr. Luciano. There are not enough words to describe the culinary experience of this wonderful dinner. Antonio purchased fresh ingredients from the market that were expertly prepared. From antipasto to dessert there was not one complaint from our family of 9. We would highly recommend staying at Villa Amalia and if given the chance we would come back.

We enjoyed our stay at the Villa Amalia very, very much! Our family wanted to stay at a place that was "off the beaten path" and the Villa Amalia was just that. I wanted my grand children to experience the genuine Italian culture and that they did: walking to the bakery just a short distance from the Villa and observing the baker make chocolate croissants, purchasing warm bread from the little store right across from the Villa, and walking to the train station when the buses were on strike. The Villa Amalia was fantastic! Everyone loved the pool. It was absolutely gorgeous and well maintained. The rooms were beautifully furnished and most inviting. Our family of 11 always felt we had our own personal space but at the same time afforded us many opportunities to socialize together. Antonio, Paul, and Amalia were always most helpful, accommodating, and eager to please. Amalia's gnocchi and sausage were a real treat! I would highly recommend the Villa Amalia to anyone desiring a vacation on the Amalfi coast. It was so well situated for day trips but at the same time provided many excellent opportunities for activities right at the villa. Thank you so much for a truly memorable vacation! We'll be back!

My wife and two other couples stayed at the villa for two weeks in Sept. '11 and had a wonderful vacation. The location is fantastic for all the areas we wished to cover. The villa is spacious, clean and airy. The beds were firm and comfortable. The owner is a gracious host who wants his guests to be relaxed and happy. There were a couple of hiccups in the kitchen but he was immediately on the problem and worked to resolve the situation. He is fluent in French, as well as Italian, which helped greatly. The villa can easily accomodate four couples, each with a private bath and a 1/2 bath on the main floor. A very memorable vacation.

Ah! The Villa Amalia. What a wonderful place to call “home” on our visit to the Amalfi Coast! The villa is large and spacious offering unique spaces to allow for large groups to spread out in comfort. In every way, the villa lived up to our expectations. What you see on the internet is what you will find upon your arrival. I also cannot say enough about Antonio, our gracious host. We were there as part of an ancestral journey and Antonio’s effort to assist us was incredible. Without asking, he went far beyond what one would expect with the result that we were successful in our quest. We can never thank him enough. If you are planning a trip to the Amalfi Coast, I strongly recommend the Villa Amalia! Mary Begis, Lakewood Village, TX., USA
