|Minimum Stay||2 - 3 nights|
Wonderful ancient apartment surrounded by an enchanting private garden among the moutain of the Amalfi Coast.
Villa Edda is now a charming Bed and Breakfast, nestled in the idyllic, rustic scene at 500 meters altitude, over the heavenly Gulf of Salerno.
The perfect retreat, offering peace and tranquillity, in an environment far removed from everyday life. A place for those who appreciate the finer, yet authentic things in life.
It's an ideal place for a family and who want to enjoy good and playful time in the garden.
Villa Edda shows the imprint of its noble history. It became the property of the agricultural area of the famous, Cava dei Tirreni, Benedictine Abbey (around 1100), and the monks, still today, call it 'the Little Vatican'.
Restructuring has converted it into an elegant, modern residence, with great comfort and style, with a meticulous attention to choice building materials, ceramics, decoration and the use of natural pigments.
On the ground floor, there is an area with porticos that create a lovely interaction between the outside gardens and the interior.
We provide 2 bedrooms: 1 suite w/bathroom in-suite (for 3 people) and 1 bedroom w/bathroom in-suite (for 2 people).
Do not hesitate to ask for the price of each room.
The most beautiful villa and location, so peaceful and tranquil.
Wonderful friendly and helpful hosts, we feel we have gained friends rather than just a holiday stay.
Huge room and bathroom and snacks, juice, fruit and water all provided in our room.
You could not have asked for anymore than what was provided, we hopefully will be able to make a return visit in the near future.
Thank you so much Elvira and Fabrice
We cannot rate Vila Edda and the hospitality of Fabrice and Elivira highly enough. Their charming historic home, set high on the mountainside, was an oasis of peace and comfort from which to enjoy the splendors of the Amalfi coast. Each morning we breakfasted like royalty in the cool of the Wisteria draped patio overlooking the gardens and mountains. From Villa Edda we were able to drive to Salerno and from their catch a boat that took us to Amalfi, Positano and a longer journey to Capri. On quieter days we took the shorter boat ride from Salerno to Amalfi from where we picked up a motor boat that in five minutes deposited us at some beautiful beaches that could only be accessed via the sea. By car we successfully navigated the famous Amalfi Coast Road (don't let the guide books put you off - take your time / be impressed with circus skills of the moped riders and use the large mirrors on the roadside to see around the corners) and enjoyed the sheer magic that is Ravello - don't miss the gardens situated at the top. By road we also were able to get to the spectacular ancient city of Pompeii and the Temple ruins of Paestum. Elvira and Fabrice were there to point us in all the right directions. We arrived as welcome guests but by the end of our stay they made us feel like old friends. Nothing was too much trouble and what became very clear was that they cared as much as we did about our vacation. It is difficult to go too wrong with restaurants but we thoroughly recommend Casa Rispoli and Ristorante La Maison Del Gusto in Cava De' Tirrine (just ten minutes from Villa Edda) - and when you just want the best pizza you have ever eaten in your life then Nonna Nannina Pizzeria Contadina - will deliver to the Villa (Fabrice ordered for us): we ate by twinkling garden lights underneath the Wisteria canopy.
This was an unforgettably beautiful and refreshing vacation - one of the best family holidays we have ever had and so much of that was due to the charm and hospitality of Elvira and Fabrice. They told us that their friends refer to their restorative home as "The Clinic" - this makes a lot of sense and we shall be returning to "The Clinic" as soon as we can!
Photos do not do this place justice. It is a truly gorgeous property from the tree-lined driveway to the sheep that graze on the grass in the morning to the glorious gardens and terraces to the interior design magazine quality interior. We spent every day going to tourist sites, but I'd love to come back for a week with several good books and just hang out at the house. The house is well-located as a base for touring Naples, the Amalfi Coast, Pompeii, Paestum, and Sorrento/Capri. Fabrice was a wonderful host, friendly yet unobtrusive. I can't imagine a rental property that I would rate more highly.
Hosts Elvira and Fabrice made us feel most welcome during our stay at the amazing Villa Edda. They were gracious, caring, attentive and had wonderful suggestions and recommendations for our visits to the Amalfi Coast and Pompeii. We felt very welcome and everything was perfect. Our stay there was definitely a highlight of our trip to Italy.
We had a wonderful, wonderful stay at Villa Edda. This stunningly outfitted and amazingly spacious villa, thoughtfully decorated by owner Elvira, was the most beautiful property we stayed in during our trip in Italy. Our hosts Elvira and Fabrice were more than gracious and welcoming and we left wishing we had stayed longer than four nights. The garden terrace where we took breakfast in the morning was lovely; and the suite, along with the spacious private yard, provided more than enough space, along with a more than ample bathroom with modern fixtures.
The location was perfectly situated for visiting all of the highlights for the Amalfi coast but away from the tourist crush, which we appreciated. Elvira and Fabrice were happy to answer our questions and truly made us feel at home. It was one of the loveliest experiences we have had in our travels, and we look forward to returning.
Beautiful house and garden. Quiet and peaceful.
Very friendly owners, who answered all our qustions. Very nice conversations and lots of fun.
I felt very welcome.
I will definitely come back, to have a holiday there.
Greetings from Austria,
From the moment we walked in the door the hospitality at Villa Edda was superb. We were greeted by Elvira, our gracious host and her partner Fabrice, with a very welcome cup of tea and sat on the lovely patio overlooking the garden. Our suite was just beautiful. It was spacious with lovely old furniture and beautiful china. We had our own small table and chairs in an adjoining room which opened out onto a delightful private green lawn where we made friends with the duck and the black rabbit. Our bathroom was large with all quality amenities.
Breakfast was served in the dining room next to the patio, again a lovely place to sit and to take in the mountain air. Each morning we were served an excellent breakfast by Elvira and great Italian coffee. On our second night we were served a typical Italian meal by Elvira, which was delicious from beginning to end, starting with the antipasta, which was rich with tasty local vegetables, then the pasta course, then the main. Beautiful quality china and glassware was used and we were served an excellent red wine that matched the food very well. Elvira and Fabrice joined us for dessert, a beautiful ricotta and pear cheesecake, followed by a homemade fennel digestif, and much interesting conversation. For us it was a wonderful Italian experience from gracious hosts. I haetily recommend Villa Edda as a peaceful place to stay from the madding crowds yet with easy access to Cava d'Tirreni or the Amalfi Coast. We walked from Villa Edda to Vietri sul mare through beautiful cool woods and small villages on well marked pathways. I could see myself having a lovely walking holiday from the villa. There is a beautiful Abbey close to the villa and well worth visiting. Elvira had a great knowledge of the area and spoke excellent English.
Among the Southern Italian landscapes, high in the hills of Salerno bay, in a close proximity between Naples,Pompei, Herculaneum, and the Amalfi Coast.
Villa Edda is the perfect reference and departure point for your artistic and naturalistic itineraries. You can discover the treasures of local craftwork and gastronomic delicacies that abound in all the area around, as well as all, the beauty of the Cilento Coast, only an hour away.
