The Bagni Mar Di Cobalto and Panorama beaches are a few minutes away where the clear sea laps at the sandy beaches adjacent to the historical towns. It is a place where one is stunned with simplicity and luxury, where sunsets seem to last for days and the privacy of extended relaxation extends as far as the eye can see. The property is a place that lends itself to lounging by the infinity saltwater pool with a perfectly poured glass of Lacryma Cristi in the late afternoon breeze coming off of the sprawling lemon groves.
Villa Saracena is about a ten minute drive from Maiori, a town famous for being the longest beach on the Amalfi Coast. With nearly a kilometre of sand, it is unique from all of the other places in the area. There you can soak up the sun with your family, stroll around the narrow streets or have a twilight aperitivo with friends as you walk down the slope to the seafront. The Villa is about one hour and 15 minutes from the incredible spectacle of Naples which is full of cathedrals, sea views, history and incredible food. Visit Via Dei Tribuanli where you can find the perfect Pizza Margherita, head to San Gregoria Ameno street to see the artisan pastoral crafts or to the National Archaeological Museum housing an incredible collection of antiquities. Shop till you drop on Via Roma to end up in Piazza Del Plebiscito where you will find Castel Nuovo, San Carlo, the oldest opera house in Europe and the Royal Palace. In close proximity is the seafront lined with bars and restaurants and a view of Capri and the Sorrentino Coast.
When staying at Villa Saracena one can visit the famous town of Positano with its steep, white, winding streets bustling to the beach. Perched on a cliff, it is one of the most visited vacation spots and is also part of the Sentiero degli Dei hiking trail. There a person can have the best of both worlds, experiencing an outdoor adventure while people watching or taking in the famous Chiesa di Santa Maria with its dome tiled with colourful majolica. An hour’s drive from the villa, the Pompeii UNESCO World Heritage Site is a delightful day trip for those who love ancient history. After the scenic trip on the coast, you will find one of the most acclaimed and stunning archaeologic sites in the world at the Parco Archeologico di Pompeii. While learning about the rich history of the lives of the Romans traveling the cobbled streets to Villa Dei Misteri, Casa del Centenario, or the House of the Faun the traveller will be astounded with wonderfully preserved architectural marvels which had been buried after the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD. You might even have the opportunity to catch a performance in the Amphitheatre during their summer season of music, dance and theatre.

Naples and its central train station and bus stations are 71 km from Villa Saracena. Maiori is 5 km, Positano is 28 km and Pompeii is 42 km from the villa.
