Located on a high cliff overlooking the sea, the Eremo di San Francesco has an unique and incomparable view of the Amalfi coast.
Isolated from the city traffic and, at the same time, a short distance from the historic centre of the town, the villa, surrounded by a scented lemon orchard, overlooks the neighboring village of Atrani, picturesque town characterized by an intricate maze of houses, built practically on top of each other, that make it look like a nativity scene, especially at night with the lights glimmering. During the time of the Maritime Republics, Atrani was the residence of the noble families of Amalfi and the Doges were crowned in the ancient Church of San Salvatore de Birecto.
Amalfi is a perfect starting point for organizing excursions to the other villages of the Amalfi coast, the Sorrentine Peninsula and the islands of Capri and Ischia. The magnificent Cathedral of Sant'Andrea, symbol of the power of the ancient queen of the sea, the arsenals, the Cloister of Paradise, the paper factories where the precious handmade paper of Amalfi is produced, are just some of the architectural and cultural gems of this town.
The bright colors and the heady scents of a luxuriant lemon orchard preserve the quite and privacy of the Eremo di San Francesco, a luxury villa located just a few steps from the historic centre of Amalfi, in a very privileged position, with an enchanting view of the Amalfi coast and of the town that was the first of the four Maritime Republics in the Middle Age.
