Villa Rupa is a unique property, a place where man's tenacity has rendered possible that which seemed impossible. The result is the creation of an earthly paradise where tradition intermingles with imagination and where fantasies can literally take flight.

Built into the rock walls above the sea, the property is perfectly integrated into this very special natural background. Geographically, Villa Rupa lies about half-way between Sorrento and Positano, but the sensation when you enter the gate of the property is that of entering a dream world. It is unlike any other place you have ever seen. Its characteristic micro-climate has allowed the creation of a garden rich with tropical plants.

Passing through the house and exiting on the other side you will find even more surprises. First you will find the external kitchen furnished with a grill and a pizza oven followed by the panoramic terraces, the swimming-pool (8x3m) with hydro massage and finally you will reach the marvellous grotto with a corner bar and the "pensatoio" - a quiet spot for losing yourself in pleasant thoughts - a terrace with breathtaking views which ends this enchanting walk and where a Peregrine falcon has made its nest -perched high on the rock face.

The legendary islands called Li Galli are a constant part of the panorama from the house. Due to its special location, this villa is not considered suitable for children under 6 years old. Sorrento lies about 6kms away. The nearest, rocky, beach is about 1.5 kms away, and the nearest sandy beach is in Positano, 8 kms.
