Autumn is well and truly upon and as the weather turns colder and the days get shorter, we’re already dreaming of sunnier climes.

Even though the depths of December, Southern Italy still boasts a mild climate and 110 hours of sunshine. And its brightest jewel is the Amalfi Coast and Naples, with its ancient architecture shaped by the area’s dramatic topography – think vertical towns, hairpin-bend roads and funicular railways.

This part of Italy, hunkered in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius, has been inhabited since Roman times and has an alluring mix of postcard vistas, antiquities and old legends. The historic homes in this list blend Mediterranean whitewashed charm, a dash of ornate Italian style and some unexpected modern touches, plus a whole lot of history.
