Villa Mirabella is a wonderful, magical place, perfect for families and friends. Located in Conca Dei Marini, it is off the beaten path of the Amalfi coast, so it is quieter, more informal and more "authentic" than some of the region's better-known destinations. Still, it is an easy hop to Amalfi, Positano, Ravello, etc. The accommodations are beautiful -- spotless, artfully decorated and spacious enough for a group of 14. Each room has its own entrance and bath and TV. The main house has two refrigerators, dishwasher, microwave in a charming kitchen. We made meals for 14, buying provisions from the small market down the hill and from the lovely butcher whose store is 20m from the villa entrance. Photos don't do justice to the beauty of the view. From the pool, from the dining patio, from the gazebo, you can see the beautiful sea and watch ships, ferries and yachts, and you can also see Capri. What truly sets Villa Mirabella apart is the love you will feel from the owners, Miriam and Antonio, whose friendly, excellent restaurant is, conveniently, just down the hill. No request is to large or small. Need transportation to Amalfi, Positano, Pompeii, Naples? Done. Want an outdoor massage overlooking the sea? No problem. A boat to ferry you and your party to Capri? No sweat. A pizza-making lesson at the restaurant, led by the wonderful chef Fiore? Done. Miriam and Antonio became our friends, our family. And did I mention that there's a turf soccer field above the restaurant where the kids can play or pick up a game? Oh yeah, there's also a wonderful, funky beach club down the hill for swimming, sunning, dining and pretending you're one of the locals or Neapolitians out for the weekend. Convinced? I hope so.
