The Destination

The Amalfi Coast, Vietri sul Mare

We have all heard of The Amalfi Coast, including the towns of Sorrento, Amalfi and Positano. You may have heard of some other smaller villages as well, but most likely, you have never heard of Vietri sul Mare. This stunning seaside village is tucked away between Maiori and Salerno making it the most southern village of The Amalfi. From here, views of Salerno, Capri and the Mediterranean are all breathtaking. Vietri’s perfect location allows for exploration of the coastline without an overwhelming number of tourists. It also has some of the largest sandy beaches along the coastline. From our private Palazzo, you can walk directly to the beach.

 

Throughout Italy and the world, Vietri is famously known for its ceramics. Often, the dinnerware used throughout all of Italy is manufactured in this small seaside village. Ceramics are sold throughout the village and a visit inside the main factory is possible allowing for a perfect souvenir from this trip.

Where You'll Stay

Palazzo Suriano

Your home away from home for this adventure will be a hillside, fully-staffed private Palazzo (Palace) overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and The Amalfi Coastline. Upon entering the property, from the top or the bottom, you will be surrounded by stunning terraced gardens filled with citrus plants, aromatic herbs and colorful flowers. Here, we will enjoy breakfast on the terrace, yoga in the gardens, aperitivo while watching the sun melt into the sea, dinners under the stars and cooking lessons in the magnificent dining room with our private chef. There will also be plenty of time to relax in the gardens, enjoy the jacuzzi with sea views, read a book in our private library, wonder the halls and admire the frescoed walls and walk to the beach from our perfectly located Palazzo.
