Villa Saraceno is located on the coast about 1,5 km from the city of Maiori, on the Amalfi Coast. Maiori sits in the deepest inlet of the Amalfi coast, at the mouth of a river. Due to its location and the natural landscape, it boasts the largest beach of the Amalfi Coast.

During the middle ages, Maiori was the primary harbor of the Amalfi Republic, housing arsenals and military headquarters. It was surrounded by coastal fortifications, some of which remain today.

Villa Saraceno consists of two independent Villas, Canonica & Torre Saracena). The Tower sits on a sheer cliff above the sea, built to observe and prevent pirate raids and other invaders who once encroached upon this coastal paradise. Originally this area was almost inaccessible on land due to the protection of the insurmountable mountains looming behind. It is due to these geographical characteristics that this area of the Amalfi Coast has survived intact, and this villa complex is a perfect example. The grounds stretch from the panoramic coastal road down to the sea, following a delightful and perfectly-tended Mediterranean garden full of surprises, from the Jacuzzi tub high on a ledge above the sea to a sauna hidden behind a rock looking onto a pretty inlet. There is also a succession of panoramic terraces furnished with benches and tables made of valuable Vietri ceramics. A swimming pool with a Jacuzzi can be heated up to 30 degrees and the swimming pool can be enclosed in glass for winter use. Next to one of the residences there is also a large covered outdoor dining area with a table for up to 22 people. There is also a daily on-site caretaker (from 08:00 a.m. to 16:00 p.m.) who can advise you about the area in addition to giving you assistance at the property.
