The villa is located in a prominent position on a picturesque stretch of rocky
coast about 100 meters (about 328 feet) above sea level. It overlooks the sea
really close by.

You can park free-of-charge on the main road. A parking space in a garage is

Villa Eufemia is part of a small hamlet of old houses gathered on the top of a
promontory, all facing the sea and the sun and also surrounded by typical
terraced gardens where lemon trees are cultivated. Here live the inhabitants of
Amalfi, with their tranquil lifestyle away from crowds of tourists. The houses
are distributed around a tiny old church and connected through stone stairways
which descend from the upper part of the coast to the area down below, the beach
and the sea.
At least once, if you are in good shape, leave the car and the bus aside and go
down towards the sea through this old pathway. It is a walk which will fill with
you joy and energy: throughout the whole path you will be embraced by the vivid
colors and perfumes of the Mediterranean vegetation and attracted by the
enchanting scenery of blue sea right in front of you…
Once through a small gate, you will step into the part of the garden which lies
in front of the main entrance of the villa. You will soon realize that you are
in an enthralling place: several red and yellow flowers grow out from rustic
grey-stone walls and surround a beautiful marble fountain and an old olive tree
with contorted trunk offers some shade to a bench and a table with chairs.
It is in the most sun-drenched area of the garden that you will find some deck
chairs and another table with chairs arranged in a way to enable guests to enjoy
the panorama over the sea.
The guests of Villa Eufemia can also enjoy the access to another enchanting
garden situated on the opposite side of the house and reached only from the
living-room. It is a rustic angle where you will feast your eyes on the
spontaneous flora of the Amalfi Coast, which lushly grows from limestone rocks.
From the garden you will be able to reach the lemon orchard of the house, formed
by stretches of terraced land covered in thick pergolas of perfumed lemons.
Here you will also find a table with chairs, deck chairs, and a barbecue. You
will have a wide view of the steep valley below and the sea.

Villa Eufemia is three-storey high. On the middle floor you will find two large
double bedrooms with a bathroom inside each. Both bedrooms have a balcony
overlooking the sea. One bathroom is equipped with a shower while the other has
a bathtub with shower taps.

picturesque stretch of coast.

green lemon pergolas which seem to plunge into the blue sea. The terrace is lit

From the corridor on the middle floor, you go down a white staircase leading to
the living-room. It is a room pleasantly furnished with a fireplace, a couch, a
table, and large arched windows which frame the beautiful view of the sea and
the coast. A patio door leads to the garden. A small corridor with a curtain at
the end leads you from the living-room to a large area where there is a double
bed. This area, used to add two sleeping places, is a passageway to the kitchen.
Next to this room there is a bathroom with a shower and a laundry area.
The kitchen is a spacious and elegant room with beautiful white furniture. It

and the bathrooms are placed along a spacious corridor.
The two double bedrooms are large and feature vaulted ceilings, typical of
houses in the Amalfi Coast.
Every bedroom has its own balcony overlooking the sea and the coast. The
balconies are big enough to have two chairs so you can sit outdoors. Both
bathrooms have showers, and in one you will find a hydromassage shower.
On this floor there is also a second kitchen. This kitchen is equipped with a
table and chairs, a four-burner stove, an oven, and a fridge with freezer. There

You will have several choices regarding beaches to go to. You can take the bus
which stops 50 meters (about 164 feet) away from the house and reach the beach
of Amalfi. From there it is also possible to take small boats which take bathers
to splendid small inlets along the coast.
One of these inlets, the so-called beach of Santa Croce, is reached even on foot
from Villa Eufemia, and the walk is definitely one not to be missed if you feel
like climbing down 400 steps dug into the rock overlooking the sea.
To go back up you can get small boats which in only 10 minutes take you on a
splendid ride on the sea to the port of Amalfi, where you can take the bus to go
back to the house. During spring/summer all the beaches feature open restaurants
and bars, rental of umbrellas and deck chairs, and also small boats connecting
to places nearby.
In Amalfi, you can also go scuba diving and practice water sports.
