The estate tracks that zig-zag down through this private domain filled with lemon orchards culminate at the waterfront 7-bedroom luxury villa, Il Marinaio. Designed in the 1960s by a leading Italian architect, the villa is located in an extraordinarily unique position, a tranquil haven, where the zesty yellows of lemons contrast with the dazzling blues of the sea, the vibrant signature colours of Italy's Amalfi Coast.
Built into the cliff wall is a large saltwater swimming pool which looks out over the bay. Below the pool, a small path leads down to a private rocky cove, on the water’s edge. This is perfect for plunging into the clear, warm waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea and can only be accessed from the villa.
The interiors are sleek and elegant with curved ceilings and modern furnishings. Throughout the property are large windows which either look out over the sea or towards the estate. The bedrooms are spread across three different levels and include a double bedroom in the Garden House which has its own entrance.
The villa comes with a chef included to provide a daily menu of seasonal local dishes, as well as a housekeeper and waiter service. Enjoy a late lunch on the shaded terrace with uninterrupted sea views. Paradise found.

Trust & Security
Action Fraud reported in 2018 that consumers lost over £7 million in online villa scams. We operate from a 'bricks and mortar' Office, are fully accountable, have full liability insurance and know all of our villas and their respective owners. Quite simply, we deliver on our promises.
Our sole aim is to understand the needs of each client and match them to exactly the right villa. We have no vested interest in any individual property.
All of our villas are listed by invitation only. No owner can pay for their property to be listed on the Red Savannah site.
The above benefits are not offered lightly. Red Savannah clients receive all the advantages and protections listed above, without paying a penny more. And remember, apart from the inability to match-make the right client to the right property, ‘Rental by Owner’ sites and other online sites will not only take on more or less any property willing to pay, but could expose the user to fraud. And if things go wrong, try getting hold of anyone to take responsibility! This is your holiday - Why risk it?
*Best Price Guarantee applies only at the time of enquiry and before the booking has been confirmed and paid. If you find a cheaper price for exactly the same property on a like for like basis and over identical dates, and where in the sole opinion of Red Savannah, no substantive pricing error has been made or private discount offered, Red Savannah will match the price. This guarantee is valid only when prices are advertised and compared in the same currency. Please note that no further amendments to prices can be made following payment of deposit.
The idea for Red Savannah was always based on a clear market need. A small team of the most experienced travel designers, supported by the latest technology and delivered with the lightest touch. In short, a travel company redefined for the 21st century.
