Dimora di mare, named also Villa Sgrosso as the family Owner's name, stands sheer above the sea on the Amalfi Coast.
It is a beautiful, large and comfortable Villa of about 400 sqm with private grounds of 1500 sqm of terraced gardens descending slowly down to the sea in the delightful private inlet in the cliffs below. The Villa lies about 1 km from Amalfi and 5 km from Ravello.
The Villa is on four floors connected by a stairway with vaulted ceilings and panoramic arched windows framing the view of the sea. Everywhere in the house there are spectacular views and the whole Villa enjoys the special atmosphere of high-quality old houses with original terracotta floors, antique parquet and old handmade ceramics.
During the recent renovation it was equipped with the most technologically advanced comforts; the furnishings are elegant and antique and all of the rooms are decorated with objects d'art, valuable paintings and precious materials.
