Amalfi Coast luxury villas uniquely suited to multigenerational travel trend

October 18, 2017 -

With the 2017 peak travel season coming to a close this month, it’s the right time for families to plan their 2018 multigenerational vacations, according to Carrington Italia, the only luxury villa specialists with a local office in the heart of Positano.

"Luxury villa rentals are a key part of the multigenerational travel trend, which has accelerated in recent years and is now a recognized trend in our region,” says Erin Romano, a longtime Positano resident who manages guest services for Carrington Italia. “Private villas are a great way to accommodate family members across the entire age spectrum, spanning two, three and even four generations."

Romano says luxury villas can accommodate just about any size family, and create a “home away from home” environment that offers privacy, comfort and the experience of living like a local. However, desirable properties on the Amalfi Coast are booked as much as a year in advance, according to Romano. Finding the right villa to suit everyone’s needs and desires is important to arranging a perfect vacation − and it requires advance planning.

“We work closely with our guests to help them find the perfect villa for their needs, and personally assist in the planning of their Italy experience, but it’s very difficult to accommodate last-minute travel,” says Romano. “Carrington Italia offers a carefully curated portfolio of private properties in a wide range of price points, and they are all in great demand. The time for high-season bookings in 2018 is right now.”

Romano says a 10-bedroom villa can accommodate up to 20 people, but there are properties suited to family groups of any size. In addition to size, other variables include location, amenities and individual preferences for touring and activities. Options range from boat trips to nearby islands and touring ancient sites to strolling neighboring villages, shopping for local specialties and enjoying the views, culture, cuisine and people. For the active-minded, there’s kayaking, windsurfing and trail hiking, to mention a few. For foodies, there are cooking classes and wine tours.

Carrington Italia offers a spectacular selection of ocean-view villas ranging from fully converted medieval watchtowers and fortresses, to magnificently restored 18th century residences and lavish moderns nestled into cliffs, according to Romano. Details such as pools, private docks and proximity to family-friendly beaches may be key in making a decision. Configuration of the villa and sleeping arrangements are always important considerations, as are the number and ages of children in the group. The choices, she says, are plentiful, but they all must be booked far in advance.

“Often, there are subtle distinctions that can make a big difference to the success of your trip,” says Romano. “Important details may include the distance from the street level to the villa, whether the villa has stairs or an elevator, and getting around the neighborhood either by foot, bus, taxi or ferry.”

According to Romano, whatever your family’s preferences may be, a custom-tailored villa vacation on the Amalfi Coast offers a wide range of options for an unforgettable trip. She says, “If 2018 is the year for your family’s once-in-a-lifetime trip to the Amalfi Coast, now is the time to plan your vacation and choose the perfect villa.”

Carrington Italia creates tailor-made Italian experiences through its network of longstanding personal relationships and personally-curated luxury villas along Italy’s Amalfi Coast and Sorrento Peninsula. Leveraging its local presence in Positano, Carrington Italia’s onsite bilingual team provides local expertise and concierge services and assists their guests in experiencing the region in more personal and authentic ways.
