Lush gardens and stunning views invite you to enjoy all that the enchanting Amalfi Coast has to offer. Vista Flora villa welcomes you with Mediterranean beauty, modern amenities and luxurious comfort.

Vista Flora can be rented in conjunction with Vista Galli and Vista Serena villa and cottage that are quite separate but is a short walk through olive groves, all part of a large private estate.

Location

Located in Piano di Sorrento, it is about a 15 minute drive to Sorrento. A gorgeous 30 minute drive will find you in Positano or Nerano where you can shop, eat. Positano has a sandy beach, a vibrant town with shops and restaurants. Nerano is small, intimate and beautiful with great restaurants.

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 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" that takes you along the dramatic and historic coastline for many miles and walkers/runners find this trail an ideal destination.

A nice feature is the proximity of an excellent trattoria and a mini-mart/cafe only a 2 block walk from the villa.
