You can see Capri from the villa windows, it is a peaceful location but everything nearby. Visit Positano if you can. It's beautiful. Very relaxed

Lots to see and do either in your own car or by public transportation
Amalfi Coast drivers are full on and it can take a bit a nerve to drive the coast road

The location was out of this world! So private. The owner has converted this former stable so beautifully, with such attention to detail, the building is delightful, the gardens are charming and the pool is the icing on the cake!
It sounds really really fussy but the sofa could have been slightly larger and more comfy! Feels like I am being really picky to even mention it!

Cambridge Family (the eldest child is at school)
The historic sites such as Pompiee, the costal views, and the weather. Quality of the food is good and somwas the price.
Roads are very narrow and never straight meaning it takes quite a lot of time and concentration to get anywhere. Many towns are over crowded making it very dificult to stop/park.

Family (the eldest child is at school)
Stunning views Beautiful outside living space Roof terrace Huge bedrooms and bathrooms
Not really possible to go anywhere in the without a car, which is a pity in the evenings Very steep and narrow roadway to access the villa - do not hire a large/wide car!

Fabulous views and variety of places to visit. Lovely coastline and water. Loads of really good quality places to eat.
The car can sometimes be a liability - many places have very limited parking. Major places you visit need to be done early (parking & crowds are a problem later in the day). Italian driving style and thousands of mopeds who drive/ride like a law to themselves!

The little roadtrain from Sant'Agata through the local area was great value for money and the driver was very entertaining.
We arranged boat trips through the local tourist office and were picked up from the villa.
Excellent restaurant opposite the villa - lovely and very helpful staff.
Car wasn't essential to get around but was useful to get to the villa - beware the villa's steep drive!
