Located in the heart of Praiano's historical center, Villa Ferida is a prestigious eighteenth century building that was once home to the noble Fusco family. While retaining its original architecture and charm, the Villa has been brought back to the splendor and magnificence of the past through an extensive renovation that lasted two and a half years.
With an enviable exposure overlooking the deep blue of the sea, flanked by fragrant lemon groves and lush Mediterranean vegetation, Villa Ferida is just 100 meters from the scenic route that leads to the charming beach of Praia. The Villa enjoys a total area of more than 350 square meters spread over three levels and connected by an elegant white wooden staircase. The common rooms which are all spacious, pleasant and luminous are embellished by elements of design, antique prints of the coast, fine shantung silk, and the discovery by restorers of delicate frescoes on arches and vaults where the peacock, symbol of abundance and splendor, recurs as a decorative motif.
The property features four beautiful master suites, a fully equipped professional kitchen, two spacious lounges, a panoramic roof garden, a stylish living garden with lawn, a sunny patio and the very romantic "emotional pool", a temperature regulated indoor pool with chromo-therapy and aromatherapy.
An irresistible blend of luxury and charm combined with the careful attention to every detail, makes Villa Ferida one of the most exclusive residences along the Amalfi Coast, with all the modern comforts to enjoy the enchantment of the Divine Coast in total relaxation and privacy.
Welcome to Villa Ferida!
On the ground floor of the Villa Ferida are situated two spacious, bright, and tastefully furnished lounges, perfectly finished down to the last detail. Here, modern design blends harmoniously with vintage fabrics, antique furniture, arches and vaults painted in delicate pastel colors.
The Rose Room, adjacent to the kitchen area and dining room, is an elegant place rich with charm for a moment of pleasant conversation or listening to music. A portion of the floor is made of glass that allows for a glimpse of the romantic emotional pool below.
The cozy and relaxing Green Room, on the other side of a luminous arch, is in fact a well tended jardin d'hiver. Here, guests may access WI-FI connection, plasma TV with satellite channels and a home theater.
Elegant design elements and antique engravings of the Amalfi Coast furnish the kitchen and dining room area. The kitchen is fully equipped, modern and professional, and is available to our guests and their culinary ingenuity, while the most demanding may request a Personal Chef for their entire stay or for just a few evenings.
Take a plunge into the pool and abandon yourself to complete relaxation, pampered by the rejuvenating benefits of the water. The Emotional Pool at Villa Ferida is the environment where luxury, elegance and romance are in harmony with the need for wellness and pleasure. This temperature controlled indoor pool is sophisticated and refined, with soft lighting, chromo-therapy, hydro-massage and air massage, vaulted and frescoed ceilings, windows and portholes that let in sunlight, a suggestive waterfall and soothing background music. The Emotional Pool: regenerate body and spirit with stimulating aquatic pleasures!
Refined in every detail, the Roof Garden of Villa Ferida enjoys an exceptional view over the sea of the Amalfi Coast. Wooden lounges with soft, colorful cushions decorate this area, lush with succulents and typical Mediterranean vegetation, among which guests will find tucked away an open air shower.
Spacious and bright, this is the patio where breakfast is served. Paved with the ancient stones of Trani, guests will sit on fine wicker furniture with soft cushions, surrounded by beautiful plants. The portico, with its typical interlaced arches, offers an elegant and exclusive atmosphere, lulled by the pleasant notes coming from lounge music melodies.
Elegant and refined, the Living Garden of Villa Ferida is an oasis of privacy and relaxation, suspended between the sky and the sea. The English lawn, the garden furniture and soft lighting create a sophisticated and charming corner for a pleasant evening accompanied by a cool sea breeze and starlight.
An infinity of little streets and steps line the terraced hillside where bright bougainvillea and scented geraniums lead the way to the sea through a maze of houses clinging to the rocks, majolica covered domes, and devotional shrines. Sunsets here, for the unusual morphology of the territory, are among the most suggestive and romantic of the coast.
This is how Praiano, Plagianum in antiquity, presents itself. Set marvelously, gem like in a scenario of endless beauty in one of the points of the Amalfi Coast where our gaze and our soul are spirited away by the superb magnificence of nature in a class by itself: the Positano Bay. The bay stretches away from the Sorrento peninsula toward the sea up to Punta Campanella and in the background, the Homeric mermaids of the little "Li Galli" islands and the beautiful island of Capri.
A place to retire for Roman nobility and the Doges of the ancient Amalfi Republic, Praiano has always attracted the élite, for discreet and relaxed moments of vacation, because it offers a more quiet and "authentic atmosphere than your noisy neighbors" - in the words of the Times On Line; far, then, from the usual tourist flows. With its privileged panoramic position on the Amalfi Coast, Villa Ferida is an ideal starting point for excursions to other neighboring towns on the coast.
Praiano has jealously preserved its most authentic soul, revealing it slowly to the visitor, with picturesque views of the highest impact. Take the marina di Praia, for example, a fjord inlet between two high cliffs that is reachable by land or by sea. During the day it is a fresh and vibrant typical fishing village, with a lido and a scuba diving center, while at night it reveals its worldly soul with trendy restaurants for the enjoyment of a candle lit dinner of excellent fresh fish, all the while lulled by the harmonious sound of the waves crashing on the shore. At the Navy guard on the tip of the promontory, stands the medieval "Torre a Mare", currently functioning as an artist's studio and venue for exhibitions during the summer.
Continuing along the coast and accessible only by sea, we find the beautiful Cala della Gavitella, with the Grado Tower built during the Spanish viceroyalty, and Gavitella's picturesque beach, the only beach on the Amalfi Coast kissed by the sun until sunset.
And finally, a myriad of little streets and steps that the industriousness and ingenuity of man have "carved" from the rock to provide access to the sea by way of a gently sloping path, proceeding along the terraced land through the Mediterranean sagebrush, tasting the intimate pleasure of contact with nature, genuine, authentic and sincere.
