What we like about this property

The Amalfi Coast is one of the most iconic stretches of shoreline in Italy, and this 16th-century watchtower commands a magnificent spot above the sea. Standing against the forces of long-ago invaders in the land of Homer’s Odyssey, this unique villa for rent in Italy has been restored with a fusion of rustic, southern Italian and Scandinavian-inspired design. 

Description

Located on the Amalfi Coast at Punta Campanella, between the Gulf of Naples and the Gulf of Salerno, this villa for rent in Italy is a great destination for adventuruous design lovers. It’s of great historical interest, off the beaten track (15 minutes by car from Termini), and overlooks the Mediterranean, with extraordinary views of the island of Capri.

One of many fortified towers constructed along the promontory, it was placed to communicate directly with the main tower at the point that was the site of the mythical Sirens in Homer’s Odyssey. Surrounded by over 500 hectares of national parkland, olive and fruit groves, it’s one of several historic buildings on the property that have been transformed into simple but stylish guest accommodations. 

Part of a portfolio of properties designed by Naples-based Norwegian architect Kristine Standnes, it is a successful mix of Italian history, design and culture, with a Scandinavian concept and aesthetic.

Although the tower’s unique configuration poses a challenge in how to interpret the space – with its vertical layout and earthbound materials – the structure is cool, relaxed and unpretentious. Stripped to the bare essentials, the intricate stonework and tile are the ideal backdrop for cool vintage pieces and decor.

The ground-floor living area comes complete with a fireplace, dining space and a simple kitchen, as well as a small mezzanine bedroom (with space for a king-size bed only). Up one level is a second living room and bath with the master bedroom above that opens out to the massive platform terrace.

The adjacent Annex (a former olive oil mill) is a few minutes walk from the tower. It has a ground-floor kitchen, living room and bath connected by an outside stair to two en-suite double bedrooms with a panoramic terrace. Both homes incorporate several outside dining spaces in a park-like setting.

Throughout the year, the owners host an artist-in-residency program focused around the fields of architecture, design, craftsmanship, hospitality and food, designed to inspire intellectual and cultural curiosity and provide a sanctuary where creativity can thrive in nature. 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Welcome kit with an assortment of coffees, teas, jam and breakfast items, with optional lunch and dinners prepared from the organic on-site gardens. 4G wifi throughout, with audio and visual services. Optional services on request (with additional charge) include: private chef and cooking lessons, driver for touring the coast, airport and train station transfers. All bedrooms have air conditioning.

AROUND

Cited as an example of outstanding Mediterranean heritage, the Amalfi Coast is a UNESCO site of legendary natural beauty and glittering coastal towns. Clinging to the dramatic vertical cliffs and backed by lush forests, the famous Positano and Amalfi draw society’s elite and gawkers alike to partake in the glamor, excellent culinary scene and stunning scenery. The nearby mountaintop town of Ravello has loads of old world charm with grand villas and gardens dotting the hillsides and in the summer months, the famed Ravello Arts Festival.

The resort town of Sorrento perched above the Bay of Naples is the gateway to the Amalfi coast and is a good jumping-off point for exploring  the vast archeological sites of Pompeii and the surrounding countryside. Home to mythical legends and ancient archeological history, Punta Campanella on the Sorrentine Peninsula along the Gulf of Naples is the land’s end point, and it was here, in Homer’s epic, that Ulysses met the Sirens and the Greeks later built a temple in honor of Athens. The original 14th-century watchtower on the headland still stands today and is within a short drive from the property. The promontory can be reached from the small square of Termini which is a 10-15 minute drive from the house. And, just three nautical miles off shore, is the island of Capri.

  • Andrew, September 5, 2017

    This is an incredible and unique place to stay off the beaten track and beautifully secluded. We arrived from Ravello and stocked up at a supermarket just outside Sorrento. This was ideal as once you arrive you really don’t want to have to leave again (both because once you arrive it is just stunning and also because the road to the property is so narrow) The property is located about 15 minutes from Termini – the last leg of the journey is an extremely tight road – we had a fiat 500 and wouldn’t want to try it anything bigger. Communication with Kristine was excellent and check in was very easy, Kristine having arranged for people to meet and take us to the property. The property itself is magical – the photos don’t do it justice. The view of Capri is fantastic and the stars at night spectacular. It is quite a steep stair case to the top floor which was narrow at the very top , but we spent most of our time on the roof admiring the view! If you’re looking for an alternative retreat away from the crowds this is definitely the place to be!

    Magical, peaceful, historic place with breathtaking views to Capri. The top room has a deck with lounge chairs so you can look up at the stars at night. It’s incredibly quiet, tucked away in some olive groves with just some farm animal sounds drifting from nearby farms. A very small car, even by European standards, is required to get directly to the property, which is down the stone pathway to Punta Campanella. We stayed as just one couple. The cozy second bedroom can’t really compare to the beautiful one with a view up top.
