Location and Surrounding Area. Villa La Lanterna is situated in a stunning, secluded spot with breathtaking views across the Mediterranean and Amalfi Coastline. It makes an ideal base for exploring the wonders of the Amalfi Coastline, an area of dramatic, natural beauty dotted with pretty fishing villages. Praiano beach is a 15 minute walk away or for those guests with total relaxation on their minds, during the summer months, there is a convenient bus stop right outside the villa which goes to the beach.
Praiano lies in the heart of the Amalfi Coastline, which has always been a desirable destination of the elite; from the artistic days of the Grand Tour to illustrious visitors such as Escher, Jackie Kennedy and Pablo Neruda. The deep Furore fjord, with its network of steps and hidden beach, is a poignant reminder of the days when fishermen would haul up their catch for the villagers.
Among the countless enchanting places to visit in the area, perhaps Ravello, Positano and Amalfi stand out for the first time visitor. Ravello, at 350 metres above sea level, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and offers both unforgettable architecture and scenic beauty. The 11th century Cathedral and Villa Cimbrone are magnificent and a summer music festival is held each in the year in the gardens of the 13th century Villa Rufolo. D.H. Lawrence wrote Lady Chatterley's Lover here and the town has been frequented over the years by the likes of Greta Garbo and Winston Churchill.
The delights of Positano and Amalfi have inspired artists, writers and lovers for centuries. The higgledy-piggledy, white-washed houses clustered up and down the winding steps and sophisticated shops and restaurants all combine to create an exceptionally chic atmosphere.
Villa La Lanterna is about an hour drive from Napoli International airport, Amalfi is 10 km away, Positano 4 km, Sorrento 20 km, Ravello 15 km and the large international airports of Fiumicino and Ciampino in Rome are 260 km away.
