Villa Principessa Description
A fully-equipped, luxury holiday home with direct access to the sea, beach platform, and pool, Villa Principessa has 3 double bedrooms, each with its own private bathroom, a large living room with a stunning sea view, a spacious dining room with a fully equipped kitchen, an additional bathroom, and two private outdoor spaces with a view of the sea.
Welcome to paradise
Beds can be one queen size or two separate twins in 2 of the 3 bedrooms. One of the bedrooms is large enough to accommodate an extra bed, which is available upon request. In both the living room and dining room, there is a comfortable double sofa bed.
All rooms have either a balcony or terrace with lovely views of the sea.
The villa is equipped with air conditioning/heating, a dishwasher, a washing machine and dryer and high speed internet access.
Along with direct access to the sea, guests staying at Villa Principessa also have access to the new "infinity" pool and solarium!
The pool is located across the street from the villa and just 70 steps from the road, and is shared with the other 5 villas in the complex. Each guest has his or her own sun lounger and towel.
The pool is open daily from April 1st to the first week of November, weather permitting. Pool hours are from 9:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and the water is heated in the cooler spring and autumn months.
Beautiful inside and out
Villa Principessa is one of the finest villas in Ravello and on the whole of the Amalfi Coast. Despite having been completely renovated and equipped with every modern comfort, the villa still conserves much of its late eighteenth century charm.
The entrance is on the street level; from here you enter a small entry hall which, on the left, opens onto the large and prestigiously furnished sitting-room and, on the right, the stairs which lead to the other two floors.
On the first floor, there are two bedrooms decorated with original period pieces. The first has an ensuite bathroom with chromotherapy shower and is completely frescoed. The second, finely and elegantly furnished, has its own adjoining bathroom with shower and bath tub, embellished with the precious original glazed "cotto" tiles from Vietri.
There is also a wardrobe area on this floor
On the second floor, there is an elegant finished attic, with a double bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette and a small private sea view terrace.
On the lower floor, there is a spacious dining-room, modern kitchen and a bathroom with shower.
Don't want to cook? Request the services of a personal chef and sit back and relax instead!
From this floor, you enter the villa's garden-terrace, furnished with tables, chairs and sun-loungers.
With its enchanting views and luxurious outdoor furniture, the garden-terrace provides the perfect venue in which to host an unforgettable, candlelit dinner
The villa is surrounded by a splendid park full of flowers and, in common with other three houses, has access to the sea (about 120 steps) and a bathing-platform.
Parking is available at the daily rate of Euro 20,00.
Villa Principessa is located in one of the most scenic and beautiful areas of the Amalfi Coast, Marmorata. This is the area of Ravello nearest the sea and a strategic location for visiting the town of Amalfi, just 1.5 miles/2.4 km away (between 7-8 minutes by car or bus from the stop located a few meters from the villa). Though Amalfi is the most important public transportation hub along the Amalfi Coast, guests can also take ferries for Capri, Amalfi and Positano from Minori, a charming village just a short walk from the villa (10 minutes) or 2 minutes by car/bus. Minori also offers restaurants, sandy beaches, grocery stores, and shops.
Because of its central location, the villa is a perfect base for visiting any of the coastal towns, plus Pompeii and Hercolaneum.

Guest reviews & feedback
Great location and helpful hosts
Kristin M. - 11 01, 2023
We had a wonderful stay at this villa. The host was quick to respond to all of our messages and provided us with helpful advice and directions for arrival. Every staff member was friendly and knowledgeable. We felt like we were Amalfi coast insiders with their help and guidance. The villa itself was beautiful and comfortable for our group of three couples and a baby. The main rooms each had doors which helped us corral kids away from the stairs. The bedrooms were spacious and quiet, and the common areas were perfect for relaxing and spending time together. The villa is also located just a short walk from the town of Minori, which made it easy to explore the area and find restaurants, shops, and other amenities. One of the highlights of our stay was having Claudia, a chef recommended by the host, come to the villa and cook us a delicious meal. Claudia was able to accommodate our vegetarian and child dietary restrictions, and she prepared a beautiful and flavorful meal that we all enjoyed. We even had leftovers for the next day! Overall, we had an amazing time at this villa in Marmorata, Italy. The host, staff, and property were all top-notch, and we would highly recommend this rental to anyone looking for a beautiful and relaxing place to stay on the Amalfi Coast.

We had such a wonderful time staying at the villa principessa. The views are incredible. Enjoyed having access to the sea and the pool. The best part of all though was the incredible service and assistance we received throughout our stay from Vincenzo and Andreas.

The communication before our stay was incredible. Vincenzo and Samantha were very quick to respond and answer any of our questions. They also helped with recommendations on how to get around the area, etc. We also had the pleasure of meeting Giuseppe who was our personal concierge for our stay. He was very hospitable and was quick to get us groceries or ANYTHING we needed. The villa was absolutely gorgeous like out of a magazine, kitchen fully stocked, comfortable beds, etc… Overall I would definitely recommend this for a largegroup. We had our own ocean access as well as incredible pool! Until next time.
Awesome Family Vacation
John W. - 06 30, 2023
Vincenzo was extremely easy to communicate with and make arrangements. We arrived and we had a great welcome. Lots of fresh fruit, snacks and of course wine. Giuseppe our property manager was instrumental in helping us plan some meals and he even went and picked up pizza for us, which was amazing. Giuseppe was like family by the end of our trip. The Amalfi coast is beyond comparison for its beauty. The villa fit our family perfectly and I don't hesitate to recommend staying there. Thanks again Vincenzo and Giuseppe.

We loved this location for the convenience of walking to Minori as well as Amalfi. The ferry system was easy to use and we even walked the stairs up to Ravello! The property managers were exceptional and our airport transportation was arranged as well and great recommendations like cooking class. The rain prevented us from using the outdoor patio often but we did enjoy the beautiful pool and vista.
Wonderful family vacation!
Marypat E. - 05 06, 2023
Villa Principessa was so very beautiful and I can’t say enough about the kindness and availability of Vincenzo and the entire staff. I started planning this trip 6 months ago. Vincenzo and I had so many texts and phone conversations. He was beyond helpful setting us up with dinners, transportation, and wonderful activities on the amazing Amalfi coast. Every single member of the staff was so very kind and went out of their way to be helpful to make our trip comfortable. A special thanks to not only Vincenzo, but also to Lucia, Andrea, Pepe, and Gerardo, and also Claudia for the delicious dinner she prepared for us on our first night at the Villa! Many, many thanks to all!!
Quirky - Wonderful Villa in Ravello/Minori
Andrea Y. - 04 13, 2023
We loved our stay at the Villa Principessa near Minori. Vincenzo was so helpful and made the entire process smooth and easy. He assisted with booking cars and a private boat to Capri and a guide for Pompeii. Everyone should do this! The Villa was also wonderful. Perfect for our group of six. The pool and the private patio and the access to the sea were great.
Edward K. - 10 18, 2022
My wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in the Amalfi Coast and stayed at Villa Principessa. It was possibly the nicest property we have ever stayed in. Incredible views, plenty of space for 6 of us with a full kitchen, 3 very large and well equipped bedrooms, a patio with a grill, a beautiful pool with beautiful views of the coast and access to the sea. Vincenzo, our property manager, went above and beyond to make our vacation perfect. He secured dinner reservations, transportation, boat trip to Capri and much much more.
Amazing Villa and location
Dori P. - 10 24, 2021
Our stay at Villa Principessa was amazing. Unbelievable views, walking distance close to Minori and the ferry which will take you to multiple destinations. Highly recommended and Vincenzo was great and was always accessible. Philipo was a great tour guide and chauffeur. We will be back to visit.
