Villa Ester is a bright and sunny two-story villa in a quiet position, located on a hillside above the sea. It sleeps five people. From Villa Ester you will enjoy a spectacular view of the sea and of the small Li Galli islands . Villa Ester is 120 square meters (1290 square feet). It features two panoramic private terraces with a view of the sea and of the coastline, winter heating and WI-FI Internet access.
You will be roughly 1 km (0.6 miles) from Colli di Fontanelle , where you will find restaurants, shops and public transportation. You will find the closest beach at 3 km (roughly 1.86 miles).

Villa Ester is built on the edge of a crag by the sea. It is a white little house surrounded by lush Mediterranean vegetation. It seems to be suspended between the blue of the sea and the sky.
When you arrive on the terrace, you will have the sea, the sky, and the sun before you. And it is right in front of you, in the sea, that your eyes will meet the famous small islands called Li Galli . Mythology tells us that the islands were inhabited by Sirens who tried to entice Ulysses and keep him in the surroundings.
It won't be hard to believe such myth as you will be able to admire with your own eyes the extraordinary beauty of this coast. The sea surrounding the Li Galli islands is a protected Marine Area, destination of scuba-divers due to its beautiful seabed.
At Villa Ester nothing but the green of a short expanse of coast will be placed between you and the sea. The area consists of a steep cliff where small pull-off areas, adorned by olive trees which gradually decrease in size as closer to the sea, have been incredibly built here and there. The last stretch of land is actually a rocky wall which seems to plunge vertically into the sea.
On the terrace and by looking towards the horizon, you will see the island of Capri and its famous Faraglioni (stacks – vertical columns of rock in the sea near the coast) on one side and the picturesque coast where the towns of Positano and Praiano are nestled.
At Villa Ester, you will have the sea "at your door". You will be able to feel the scent of the sea and hear it, but not go for a swim in such area.

"Truly beautiful and charming stay at Villa Esther"
Left on 06/25/2009 for a stay in April 2008 | APBReviewed Jun 25, 2009Stayed Apr 2008
We were three of us staying a week at Villa Esther in Colli di Fontanelle. First, the little town of Colli Di Fontanelle is simply charming, with all the folks very friendly and helpful. Now the stay at the villa. The place is tastefully furnished and extremely clean. The owner was always helpful and accommodating. (He stays on the villa grounds most of the time, but is not at all intrusive). We had no car and took advantage of the mini bus that took us into Piano di Sorrento, where we would catch the Circumvesuviano train to get to Sorrento and Naples.
The villa is located on a very steep hill overlooking the Mediterranean. I must admit, the walk up the hill to get to the main road was a challenge, but then none of us is very young anymore, and, in the end, it didn't matter. We had a wonderful time and I highly recommend renting the villa, and, of course using Summer in Italy as your agent. For us this was the third time that I used Summer in Italy, and have never been disappointed.

Our stay at Villa Ester was one of our most memorable visits to Italy - and we have have made many trips and rented a number of villas there!
The views of the Mediterrean from the two large balconys are simply spectacular! We spent hours gazing at the sea from these unforgettable vantage points, surrounded by flowering bouganvillas, herbs and other colorful plants. The villa itself is so peaceful and so very Italian in its furnishings. We felt that we were truly living the real experience. There are two lovely bedrooms and two full baths in this multilevel house; a dining room table that we filled every night with plates of pasta, bruschetta, capresse, antipasti, pecorino - we brought fresh produce every morning from the neighboring village. Oh, and did I mention the wonderful vin locale from the local alimentari? In a word this experience was heavenly!!! The owner is a very nice man who teaches English to students in Amalfi. The caretakers are a gracious older couple who lived nearby and looked after us. We hope to return to this magical place.
