Villa Meridiana is a fascinating house of about 200 square meters (2,150 square feet) situated on a peak sheer above the sea. It can sleep 10 people. There is a terrace, a porch, a garden and it has an extensive panorama of the sea and of Amalfi. You can reach the sea on foot. There are four double bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a large sitting room and a kitchen.
The house is 1 km (half a mile) from the centre of Amalfi.
Villa Meridiana is built on a peak on the rocky coast, situated between the road and the sea. It was built two hundred years ago. You reach it by descending 95 steps from the level of the road.
After entering the gate, which is at road level, and descending the first flight of steps, which are shaded by a pergola of Bougainvillea, you will see immediately the white building of the house that emerges from the luxuriant green of an orchard. The roof is made of high domes, which stand out, white and bright, against the blue of the sea and sky.
As soon as your eyes feast on this place of natural beauty you will realise that you have arrived in a magical place and you will ask yourself if you are really here, if you are really going to take part in all this beauty for the whole length of your holiday!
On the upper part of the white wall of the house there is a sundial and underneath it there is a circle made of majolica that represents the heavens using the signs of the zodiac.
The entry to the house is though an orange and mandarin orchard full of parts of antique statues and other objects that were originally found in the place.
In front of the house, facing towards the sea, there is a white porch made of big arches and tiled in sky blue majolica. Violet flowers of blooming Bougainvillea decorate the arches and frame the marvellous horizon of blue sea.
When you look down, the sea seems near, so near that you seem to catch the soft movements of the waves, on which the bright reflections of the sun dances.
Under the porch there are benches and a large stone table decorated in majolica, hand painted by local artists.
On the wall a large square piece of majolica represents The Milky Way and the zodiacal constellation: it seems an invite you, on behalf of the person who built and lived here more that two centuries ago, not to lose the opportunity to enjoy, from this precise point, the unchanging and fascinating display of the starry night on the sea.
The porch supports a large terrace, which runs in front of the rooms on the first floor. Here, also, the terrace faces the sea and the sun and is shaded by a pergola covered in a vigorous climber that grows up from the garden below.
From the porch you enter, by way of two large glass doors, the sitting room on the ground floor. In the middle of the room there is a large table with some small armchairs. Along one wall there is a fireplace and along another there is a piano. Large paintings and a television complete the furnishings. The floor is made of glossy majolica painted by hand.
Next to the sitting room there is a large kitchen where an antique coal cooking range made of ceramic and iron has been kept. The kitchen is equipped with four gas rings, an oven and a fridge/freezer.
One of the double bedrooms is also found on the first floor. This room is “en suite” with shower. It has a window that overlooks the garden and its position keeps it cool in summer. However, there is a ceiling fan.
A lovely wooden and majolica stair leads you up to the upper floor. Here there are three double bedrooms, all of which have balconies that give access to the terrace and all are with sea view. Each of the rooms has its own bathroom two of which are “en suite”. Each room has its own table and chairs placed on the balcony. These three rooms have air conditioning.
In two of the rooms it is possible to add a single bed, therefore reaching the maximum of ten sleeping places.
The house furnishings, though of an antique style, are comfortable and pleasing, each room with its own splendid majolica floor.
You can enjoy a widespread panorama: on one side the coast with the populated part of Amalfi, in front the sea and on the other side, the part of the coast that goes towards the headland of Capo Conca.
