We hired Villa Knight for a family reunion of 8 people. It was ideal for us with the 5 bedrooms, all with their own bathroom. Three of the bedrooms were on one level, each with their own terrace, with the other two on the floor above along with the communal lounge/kitchen. There was plenty of space for us all without feeling on top of each other. The grounds of the villa are on the side of a steep hill so note there are numerous steps to negotiate around the property.
The villa is situated in Pogerola, a village in the mountains above Amalfi. The village has all the shops, bars and restaurants you need and all within a short walk from the villa. The people in the village are warm, friendly and very helpful.
Travelling from the villa will depend on your preference. There are 2 footpaths down to Amalfi, one of which comprises 1300 steps and is not advisable to walk back up, the other is more meandering. There is a regular bus service from the village to Amalfi and it's a good and cheap service. From Amalfi you can then get a bus, taxi or boat to other towns along the Amalfi coast. If you, like us, hire a car, just remember that the Amalfi Coast, with its stunning scenery, comprises of narrow roads on steep hillsides with numerous hairpin bends and Italian drivers. Not for the fainthearted!!
We had a great holiday at this villa and the Amalfi Coast boasts some fantastic scenery. Highlight for us was the boat trip to Capri, which enabled us to view the Amalfi Coast from the water, as well as saviour the delights of the island itself.
