Take an Italian vacation to new heights with a stay at The Tower. Perched dramatically on a cliff on the Amalfi Coast near Maiori, the tower was originally built for defense in the 14th century. Today, its been completely renovated into a peaceful two-bedroom retreat with glorious sea views. Larger groups can rent The Tower along with nearby Villa Luisa; together, the two villas can accommodate up to eighteen guests.
Despite measuring its age in centuries, The Tower has modern luxuries like two shared pools, terraces overlooking the water with hammocks and sunbeds, and outdoor sitting and dining areas. A conference room and gym are shared withVilla Luisa, but The Tower has its own TV and Wi-Fi in the living room and one bedroom. The services of a cook, housekeeper and butler and use of a golf cart are included in your stay.
For a medieval fortification, The Tower has surprisingly open and bright living spaces. The living room is finished in airy tones of white and creamy pale stone and filled with contemporary white sofas and wicker chaise longues. The dining room hints at the buildings history with wooden beamed ceilings and a fireplace, but a glass-topped table, white chairs and sunny sea views make it feel modern. A fully equipped eat-in kitchen has gorgeous stone floors and a backsplash in addition to perks like a dishwasher.
There are two bedrooms at The Tower: one in the tower itself, and one in the tower dependance. Both have double beds and en-suite bathrooms. The bedroom in the tower itself is air-conditioned, opens to a rooftop terrace with sea views and has access to an outdoor shower, and the bedroom in the dependance also has ocean views.
