Lush gardens and stunning views invite you to enjoy all that the enchanting Amalfi Coast has to offer. The Vista Flora villa welcomes you with Mediterranean beauty, modern amenities and luxurious comfort.
A nice feature is the proximity of an excellent trattoria and a mini-mart/cafe only a 2 block walk from the villa.
For a bit of exercise there are hikes to enjoy down to the sea which takes about 1 hour or up on the trails of Monte Amato. Also, about 100 meters just outside the gate of Vista Serena, is a lovely park "Antico Parco dei Principe". It has a large public swimming pool with a high slide that kids love. You can also access a hiking trail from this park that goes up the mountain and then connects with the "Path of the Gods". This hike takes you along the dramatic and historic coastline for many miles and walkers/runners find this trail an ideal destination.
A gorgeous 30 minute drive will find you in Positano or Nerano where you can shop, eat and soak up the sun at the beach. Positano has a sandy beach, a vibrant little town with shops and restaurants. Nerano is small, intimate and beautiful with great restaurants....know that the beach in Nerano is composed of small stones, not sand.
Vista Flora villa is located in Piano di Sorrento on the Amalfi Coast, about a 15 minute drive to Sorrento and also close to Positano.
The natural stone house is beautifully landscaped and maintained. The restful views over the green lawn give way to expansive vistas of the sparkling Tyrrenian sea.
Flowers enhance the gardens that surround the house, with fragrant roses, cheerful bougainvilla. Enjoy the bounty of the seasonal fruits from garden. Depending on the season, you'll find lemons, oranges, pomegranates, figs, persimmons.
Vista Flora can be rented in conjunction with the Vista Serena villa which is a 2-minute walk next door, all part of a large private estate.
Surrounding Vista Flora is the owner's private land, with olive trees and palms dotting the landscape. The location is very accessible and easily reached from Sorrento and Positano.

• Delightfully decorated, there are many special touches, all of the highest quality.
• Splendid setting, we enjoyed long lunches and dinners under the loggia, and cocktails on the lounge chairs at dusk on the lawn.
• Views of of the sea are enchanting.
• We like the open-plan kitchen, makes it fun to prepare meals while socializing
• All three bedrooms are quite comparable, so no one feels like they got the "short straw" on bedroom picks, although only 2 of the bathrooms are en suite.
• There are some nice walks for exploring, both short & long, to take in the area, a mini-market/cafe & several restaurant within a 5-minute walk or take a long one hour hike up into the hills or down to the sea. Having a restaurant and a cafe within walking distance is a special feature.
