Appartamento Elena is part of a romantic historical villa set into a cliff that drops steeply down to the sea. It features a swimming pool filled with sea water, and private access to the sea.
This large villa, about 3 km (2 miles) from Amalfi, is divided into three apartments. Each of them has a splendid balcony, framed by arches and supported by small ancient marble columns. From the balconies you will enjoy an incomparable view of the sea, and the stunning profile of the Amalfi Coast.
During your stay in Appartamento Elena, you will be able to relax in the charming garden, full of flowers and adorned with precious ancient statues. The garden consists of a series of terraces that descend towards the sea. On these terraces, you will be able to rest in the shadow of perfumed pergolas of lemons and flowers, while drinking in the breathtaking panorama that spreads out before you. The wide swimming pool, which also boasts a fully-equipped solarium, is dug into the cliff-side close to the sea. A stairway cut into the cliff leads directly to the sea, and to a point where small boats can berth.
It is difficult to describe the beauty of this place: as soon as you step into the garden of the villa, you will find yourself rejuvenated by the clean, ocean-scented air, and overwhelmed by the glistening deep blue sea in front of you and the flower-filled garden all around. As you walk the paths and the stairs of the garden, admiring the ancient statuary and the flowers that spill from well-tended beds, hillside crevices and terracotta urns, you will discover ever more fascinating views of the coast. The ancient style of the buildings, which fit beautifully among the cliff, the sea and the green surroundings, contributes to the unique charm of the place. You will find it difficult to leave, just like so many of the famous people who have stayed here in the past, including Jacqueline Kennedy -- to name just one.
Indeed, beyond its matchless beauty, the villa is part of an historical area of huge significance for the Coast of Amalfi. In this large park, situated between the state road and the sea, a few buildings are cleverly set into the green slopes of the rocky coast, and partly built into the cliff itself. The most ancient building here is the twelfth-century watchtower, which was originally a hunting and fishing pavilion of the Princes of Marsiconovo, the Barons of Campagna. The Tower, which accommodates an apartment-museum, has hosted the last sovereigns of Italy, Vittorio Emanuele III and Queen Elena, and guests such as Jacqueline Kennedy and many other famous personages. The owner is Prince Don Luigi d'Angerio of Saint Agata, who combines the exquisite hospitality that he offers to the personalities that converge from all over the world with his passion for interior decoration. Thanks to this passion, not only the old tower but also the other buildings and the garden are furnished with precious antique pieces.
Appartamento Elena, about 100 square meters (1075 square feet) large, occupies the middle floor of the villa. It sleeps five people. Entry to the apartment is through the garden, near a perfumed lemon pergola. Under this pergola, tables and chairs are available for you to relax outdoors. A short pathway through the garden leads to the swimming pool and solarium, and to the point of access to the sea below. The apartment has two bedrooms, each with double bed, a single bedroom, a spacious living room, a kitchen and a bathroom. The bedrooms and the living room have a view of the sea, and are furnished with authentic antique furniture, paintings and lamps. The living room is connected to a romantic loggia perched directly above the sea, where the spectacular view is framed by marble columns.
The kitchen is new and fully functional, equipped with a refrigerator, a 4-burner stove and a hood fan. The bathroom has a shower. The majolica floors of Appartamento Elena have been crafted and hand-painted by local artisans. The apartment has a phone connection to the reception area of the villa.
