Il Mulino is a beautiful villa on the Amalfi Coast with a private infinity pool overlooking the sea with a view of Positano and Capri. It is approximately 4.5 ml (7 km) south of Positano and 6 ml (10 km) north of Amalfi. Praiano is arguably the most authentic town (see www.amalficoasting.org), much less crowded and commercial than the other 3 jewels of the “Costiera” (Positano, Amalfi and Ravello) but offers all necessary services such as restaurants, bars, grocery stores, bus stops, post office etc. Thanks to its wonderful location, Il Mulino is perfect for those who want to spend time secluded in a small paradise on earth with one of the most extraordinary views in the world and be able to visit all the other towns of the Amalfi Coast.

Il Mulino enjoys a 180 degree view of the Mediterranean, with the Island of Capri and its world famous faraglioni on the horizon and the magical town of Positano to the right.

Il Mulino was a 16th century olive oil mill that was completely restored from 2003 to 2006 by the present owners. While the structure and some its characteristic features such as the cupola ceilings, the arches and even a good-luck stone on top of the cupola of the upstairs master bedroom were kept intact, modern and sophisticated features were added to the house. They include an electronically controlled wire system; 24/7 DSL Internet access; a stereo system that piped into all rooms, including the bathrooms; and an extremely quiet central air conditioning system, with a dual system for heating in the winter.

Il Mulino is an all-season home. Late spring and summer and early fall are of course wonderful for swimming, but late fall and winter are quieter and give one a chance to see more of the local life on the coast.

The bathrooms and the kitchens have a successful mix of handcrafted features, such as travertine marble sinks and old Neapolitan tile backsplashes, and modern appliances of the highest standard.

Il Mulino is built on two levels and has two completely independent apartments, with their own bathrooms, kitchens and outdoor terraces. All bedrooms have their own bathrooms. On yet a third level there is a magnificent infinity pool that makes you feel as if you could swim into the sea in front of you. A fourth terrace has a wonderful shaded limonaia, or lemon tree pergola, where you can sit and have a drink or rest on a lounge chair in peace and seclusion.
