Villa Le Palme is a splendid luminous three-story antique villa facing the sun and the sea. It comfortably sleeps 12 adults in its 400 sq. m. (4300 square feet) featuring a private pool, spacious terraces, selected air conditioning, winter heating and WI-FI Internet access.
We are roughly 4 km (2.5 miles) from Maiori, where you will find a selection of restaurants, shops, the beach and our tourist port. The closest restaurant is just 800 meters (880 yards) away and the bus stop for the local line SITA (Amalfi – Salerno) is a mere few meters (feet) away. You can reach Villa Le Palme from the parking area along a short private walkway that cuts through the garden with no steps involved. Parking is free of charge inside the entrance gate.
The main feature of the villa situated up on a cliff is an authentic circular tower built more than a thousand years ago, which was used to warn the local people when pirate ships were approaching. The tower was renovated at the beginning of the 1900s to create the villa, and the other rooms were added later.
Today we find a wonderful terrace on top of the tower, linked to a smaller round terrace on top of a rocky ledge jutting out towards the sea. From up here you can see a stretch of the coast up to Amalfi and even as far as Capo di Conca Dei Marini, which has a similar antique lookout tower. You can see everyone and everything while you vaunt full privacy surrounded by a local pine forest. Directly below you lies a small bay which depending on the time of day and the sun can be a deep blue, emerald green or completely transparent - the true magic of this Swimming Pool.
The swimming pool with a sea view along the coast is 3 meters (10 feet) wide by 11 meters (36 feet) long. The swimming pool area is equipped with a table, chairs, sun loungers and a swing. There is a poolside bathroom complete with a washbasin, toilet and a shower. It is partly shaded by a pergola with a bamboo roof. The pool is open from mid-May until mid-October.
