Take in southern Italy’s famous coastline, her rugged seascapes, old-world grandeur and impossibly dramatic beauty.
Exceptional villas curated by our experts
This stylish stretch of coast is Italy at its most iconic. Pastel-painted houses perch precariously atop vertiginous cliffs, tumbling down into the Tyrrhenian Sea. From Sorrento to Salerno, this celebrated coastline has been the darling of the world’s jet set since Jackie O summered here in the sixties.
Hire a classic car and brave the hairpin bends that lead down the coast from Naples, vertigo-inducing sea views to your right, the cloud-cloaked peaks of restless Mount Vesuvius to your left. Pause for an aperitivo along Sorrento’s stunning seafront, where Belle Époque hotels ooze elegance, stood atop the sheer cliff-face.
Take in the unforgettable views from your grandiose villa, pool looking down on Positano’s colourful houses clustered below. From here, hire a yacht and head to the fabled island of Capri. Moor up among the mega-yachts lazing in her secluded coves, azure waters hiding secret grottos. On land, browse the chic boutiques that line the piazza, before lingering over a long dinner in one of Anacapri’s many restaurants. Feast on Neapolitan mussels marinara under a canopy dripping with lemons and bougainvillea, as the sun sets on another perfect day.
