Up on a winding road, and just a 20-minute drive from Amalfi and a 15-minute drive from Conca dei Marini, Villa Nume is a beautiful fortified construction dating back to 1500, with original thick walls and a watch tower. Masculine and austere in its exterior look, Nume boasts recently renovated interiors styled in a very romantic and sophisticated way. Perched on an outcrop of a mountain – the villa is reached by several flights of steps down – it overlooks the winding coastline and the stunning turquoise open sea. If you are looking for a quiet private retreat with great service, this idyll will not disappoint you. It is the perfect villa for guests seeking romantic seclusion and the excitement of the Amalfi Coast.

Thank you so much for the amazing hospitality. Antonella and Yulyia were incredible in catering to our every need. Our rooms were always perfect and they were happy and caring in everything they did for us. Peppe was a great chef, happy to help and let us change plans when we needed. Great cook! Maximiliane was kind and helpful and was such a gracious host. Big Thanks!

Just returned from a week at Villa Nume. WOW. What an experience. This ancient fortress turned luxury villa is gorgeous. It is situated in the town of Furore and the actual name of the villa is Divino Maniero. The bedrooms are all beautiful, and the pool is magnificent. You just can’t imagine the pristine views from every window. It truly is magical.
But what made our stay so much more enjoyable was the staff. Everyone is lovely and helpful. Housekeeping is on-site each day, the manager is available for any questions and groundkeepers keep everything beautifully appointed.
Vito, the chef, is outstanding. There is no set menu as Vito works with you each day to select dishes that are fresh and locally inspired. At 5pm each day, a tray of cocktails and non-alcoholic drinks appear all made with ingredients from the villa gardens. Candlelit dinners were enjoyed each night at different locations on the grounds. Vito gave our kids a pizza making class one night with the outdoor pizza oven. He is inventive, charming, kind and made our stay so memorable.
We were pleasantly surprised the find a market and a bar/restaurant across the street from the villa. And the villa provided a driver to take us to the town of Amalfi at no cost (there is a charge for distances beyond Amalfi). Once in Amalfi, you can ferry to so many locations (Capri, Positano, etc).
Check in with the staff about the local winery for tours. There is a beach at the fiordo that is accessible after a long walk of stairs (or a ride from the driver!). We hiked The Path of the Gods from Agerola to Positano and it truly is amazing!
We would definitely recommend this property, and we hope to be able to visit again one day!
What to do in Positano and the Amalfi area
A winding scenic drive along the coastal road, known for its hairpin bends and spectacular views, takes visitors to Positano, Praiano, Amalfi and the spellbinding uphill town of Ravello, with its incomparable belvedere. Any of these popular resort towns along the coast are good bases for exploring the surrounding areas. Buses and ferries run frequently and are the most convenient way to reach other towns while avoiding what could be a challenging drive in the bustling summer traffic. Other excursion possibilities include a boat trip to the islands of Capri and Ischia, a visit to the vibrant cities of Napoli, Salerno, or the gracious Sorrento, or an exploration of Pompeii and Herculaneum - the fascinating ruins of ancient cities destroyed by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in the 1st century A.D.
The Amalfi Coast offers an abundance of cafes, shops, art galleries and restaurants on its vertical terrain. Most beaches are small pebble inlets of land thus the best way to enjoy the sand and the turquoise water is to tour the area by boat (ask our concierge about it!) and let an expert local captain take you to his favorite spots or suggest the best seaside restaurants. A memorable experience!
