Relays Villa Felice , located only a short distance from enchanting Amalfi, consists of the premises of the last abode of the Porpora Anastasio family, once proprietor of vineyards, woods, country houses, tenement houses, mansions and factories in Amalfi, Lone, Vettica, Conca dei Marini, Scala and Naples.
The Porpora Anastasio family were prominent in cultural and legal spheres. The family’s name can be traced back to the mid-19th century when the last member of the Anastasios, a landowner who had no children and no relatives, adopted a Porporas family member from Conca.
The ancient origins and the prowess of its ancestors are displayed on the Anastasio coat of arms that is reproduced in marble above the two terraces of the house. The family has always been known for its leading cosmopolitan spirit, particularly through the various generations of women that were prominent during their lifetimes.
The name Felice refers to one of the last male representatives of the family. Felice deeply loved this place and in the 1980s he arranged for the villa to be restored. He witnessed the social changes that brought about the decline of the noblest tradition of hospitality and the facelessness of the modern hotel industry.
That is why he has opened the doors of his estate to enhance local tourism, with a domain that reflects the area’s natural qualities.

The furnishings in the common areas are part of the family’s estate and the unusual décor bears witness to those who loved and still love this place.
