Limonaia is an exceptional contemporary villa designed and built in the 1960s by a leading Italian architect. Set in the heart of one of the most attractive and extensive private estates of the Amalfi coast, Limonaia offers a unique private retreat in an inspirational setting. The grounds are almost entirely given over to the cultivation of lemon trees and the citrus-laden trellises extend from the top of the headland right down to the coastline. All year round the landscape is dominated by the deep shades of green vegetation, the vivid yellow of ripening lemons and the profound blue of the sea below. Guests have exclusive use of a panoramic salt water swimming-pool, ingeniously designed to incorporate the sheer cliff wall. A path leads down from the grounds to a private rocky cove at the waters’ edge. Furthermore, guests can enjoy the exclusive cooking of a local chef offering a daily first-class menu of seasonal dishes using local ingredients. The estate provides guests with small electric cars for easier access to the property which is situated at the end of a winding tarmac road.
Within the large estate is another independent property called Torre Saracena, just 800 metres away. It is possible to rent the entire estate accommodating up to 24 people.
