Torre di Cesare is located on the coast about 3 km from the city of Maiori, on the Amalfi Coast. Maiori sits in the deepest inlet of the Amalfi coast, at the mouth of a river. Due to its location and the natural landscape, it boasts the largest beach of the Amalfi Coast.
During the middle ages, Maiori was the primary harbor of the Amalfi Republic, housing arsenals and military headquarters. It was surrounded by coastal fortifications, some of which remain today.
Torre di Cesare is a converted Saracen Tower which has dominated the Amalfi Coast for centuries, standing guard over the Mediterranean in perennial salute.
This property consists of two independent Villas and a 16th century Saracen Tower. The Tower sits on a sheer cliff above the sea, built to observe and prevent pirate raids and other invaders who once encroached upon this coastal paradise. Originally this area was almost inaccessible on land due to the protection of the insurmountable mountains looming behind. It is due to these geographical characteristics that this area of the Amalfi Coast has survived intact, and this villa complex is a perfect example. The grounds stretch from the panoramic coastal road down to the sea, following a delightful and perfectly-tended Mediterranean garden full of surprises, from the Jacuzzi tub high on a ledge above the sea to a sauna hidden behind a rock looking onto a pretty inlet. There is also a succession of panoramic terraces furnished with benches and tables made of valuable Vietri ceramics.
