Villa Torre di Maiori is a converted SaracenTower which has dominated the Amalfi Coast for centuries and stands guard over the Mediterranean as though in perennial salute. In previous times, such towers acted as fortified look-outs to prevent raids by sea-borne invaders and pirates. Today, the private land surrounding this unique, romantic property sweeps down from the coastal road to the sea just two miles south of the fishing village of Maiori.
As well as the converted Saracen Tower, Villa La Torre di Maiori has a further accommodation unit built above the tower, called Canonica. The Canonica and the Tower are linked by magnificent outdoor pathways and steps within a perfectly kept Mediterranean garden. Guests here will enjoy the terraces, the superb swimming pool area with solarium, open air Jacuzzi, sauna, gym and, of course, private access to the sea thanks to a specially built platform.
Villa Torre di Maiori has its own staff - experts in organising activities such as tours, boat rentals, car transfers as well as looking after your every need during your stay at the property. Every room is air-conditioned, with its own direct telephone line, satellite TV and internet connection. Villa Torre di Maiori is the perfect answer for those seeking to organize large family reunions, weddings or original corporate events.
