The Villa was built in the XIII century by a group of Franciscan monks, is now a splendid villa, equipped with all the modern comforts in order to host weddings, meetings and other important parties, the all preserving the ancient architecture of the hermitage, rich in precious and elegant decorations.

The spacious and comfortable living area, embellished with frescoes too, is equipped with LCD TV SAT, Hi-Fi system and air conditioned, in addition to large windows and balconies overlooking the garden and the sea.

Already chosen by the Franciscan monks eight century ago for its perfect combination with the nature, the Eremo di San Francesco is an oasis of calm and relaxation set in one of the most desired place of the world, the Amalfi coast.
Located on a high cliff overlooking the sea, the villa has an unique and incomparable view of the Amalfi coast. Isolated from the city traffic and, at the same time, a short distance from the historic centre of the town, the villa, surrounded by a scented lemon orchard, overlooks the neighboring village of Atrani, picturesque town characterized by an intricate maze of houses, built practically on top of each other, that make it look like a nativity scene, especially at night with the lights glimmering. During the time of the Maritime Republics, Atrani was the residence of the noble families of Amalfi and the Doges were crowned in the ancient Church of San Salvatore de Birecto.
Amalfi is a perfect starting point for organizing excursions to the other villages of the Amalfi coast, the Sorrentine Peninsula and the islands of Capri and Ischia.
