Relais Country Resort is a beautiful villa with a sunny patio and views of Naples, Vesuvius, Monte Faito and the sea in the distance. It sleeps up to 5 people (an extra bed can be added in one of the double bedrooms on request).  Relais Country Resort is 65 metres squared and features a wonderful, large private patio, air conditioning and winter heating (in the bedrooms) and internet access (on request).

Relais Country Resort is situated in Santa Maria del Castello, in the mountains above Positano, where there are stunning views of Positano and the Amalfi Coast.  

This villa is perfect for guests who love the peace and quiet of the countryside and especially for those who love walking and hiking. 

From here, you can do walking excursions and access the ‘il Sentiero degli Dei’ (the path of the Gods) and also walk to Positano (approx. 1 hour going down and 1.5 hours coming back up). Here you will enjoy breathtaking views and wonderful sunsets. You can also enjoy cultivating and eating homegrown produce from the garden. Approximately 900 metres from the villa, there is a bar and restaurant.  Here you will also find a bus stop which takes you to Vico Equense and the beach (approx. 40 minutes).  To access Relais Country Resort, you can park a car approx. 800 metres away. There will be a porter on hand to help with your luggage on arrival and departure. We recommend using a small to medium size car whilst staying at this villa. 

As you enter the villa, you will find yourself in the kitchen/dining area. Here there is a dining table and chairs. There is also a fully equipped kitchen with an oven, 4 gas hobs, fridge/freezer, microwave, toaster and kettle.  There is also a washing machine, iron and ironing board in the utility room.

From the kitchen, you can access both double ensuite bedrooms which have been newly refurbished. The main bedroom is beautifully furnished and also has a window, a TV and an air conditioning/heating unit. Its ensuite bathroom has been recently refurbished and has a sink, toilet and shower. The second double bedroom also has a window, a TV, an air conditioning/heating unit and newly refurbished ensuite bathroom with a sink, toilet and shower. Here, there is also a single bed and direct access onto the courtyard.

From the kitchen, you can access the large, 100 metre squared patio where you can enjoy an aperitive whilst watching the sunset.  The patio area is also the perfect place to dine ‘al fresco’ with family and friends whilst admiring the spectacular views of the countryside and mountains. 

Relais Country Resort is located approximately 30 minutes by car from Vico Equense, the centre of the Sorrentine Peninsula. Vico Equense is well linked by public transport and from here, you are only 20 minutes by train from Pompeii, Ercolano, Sorrento and Positano. Vico Equense’s coast offers lovely beaches with clear water and all the equipment you need to soak up the sun! The town has two ports: Vico Equense and Seiano, from where you can hire a private boat, to Sorrento, Capri, Amalfi and Positano. Both ports are accessible by local buses. Vico Equense also offers some of the best restaurants in the Sorrentine peninsula.

There are local guides who can accompany you on beautiful walks such as the Path of Gods, a walk to Positano from Santa Maria del Castello itself and stunning landscape walks in Monte Faito with views of the Bay of Naples. Just ask for more information.

"We will definitely return!"

A fantastic property. We have just returned and have to say we were delighted with our stay. You will need a car as the property is remote but we were able to visit, Naples, Sorrento, Vico and Amalfi with ease. You can walk to Positano in a about an hour but allow 1.5 hrs on the way back.Giovanni and Alfonso were incredibly helpful and the local villages delightful. We will definitely return. Thanks Naplesvillas for a great holiday.

Wonderful country retreat

This newly refurbished property was the perfect country retreat. We were looking for peace and relaxation and that was exactly what we got. The building itself is very historical and dates back to 17th century but with all modern facilities. The view of the mountains and the sea in the distance takes your breath away. I have never slept so well - a combination of the fresh mountain air and the tranquility of the property in its secluded surroundings. We walked from Santa Maria del Castello (where the villa is located) to Positano. We also took the chairlift from Mount Faito to Castellmare di Stabia. You need a car when staying at this property and you can park it about 800 metres away. The local property manager, Giovanni, was on hand to help carry our luggage from the car park to the villa. You do need to be mobile to stay here but if you love the peace and quiet and the countryside, this is the villa for you. For people who love nature and walking - you will not be disappointed.
