Location Description

The property is located one kilometer from the center of Positano where there are restaurants, shops, ice creameries, markets, a bank, post office, and the Spiaggia Grande Beach further down the pedestrian road. There are also bus stops in town that can take you up and down to other beautiful towns along the coast, including Amalfi. Amalfi is a town that dates back to the 6th century and was once an important trading center with historical and medieval architecture throughout the town. The main sites include the Duomo, in Amalfi's center, the cathedral of Sant' Andrea, which dates back to the 11th century, and the Cloister of Paradise. There is also a museum dedicated to the works of Morelli and a museum where you can view artifacts of Amalfi's long and interesting history. During the summer months, there are daily ferries leaving from Positano to Capri, Sorrento, and Naples.

Please Note: While the Amalfi Coast is beautiful and charming, it is also steep, with many uphill and downhill stairs and walkways. In general, it is an area that is not kind to those of us with knee or mobility issues. This should be considered before booking a property in this area.

Rome: 300 km/186.5 mi
Naples (Airport): 60 km/37.5 mi
Pompeii: 35 km/22 mi
Amalfi: 20 km/12.5 mi

Exterior Description
(141 m2 of terraces + 400 m2 of gardens)

This villa is hidden behind walls with a large wooden door opening directly onto one of the many passageways through the village.

There is an indoor heated swimming pool (3 m wide, 8 m long, and depth min. 1.20 m - max 1.94 m) with available hydro massage. Please note: It is not possible to access the villa by car – this can only be done on foot via a long, winding alleyway with about 190 steps in total. Until 6:00 PM daily, a porter is available to help with luggage transfer on arrival and departure, but this villa is not recommended for those with walking difficulties, the very young, or the elderly.

Interior Description
(497 m2/5,350 ft2)

The interiors of the 18th century villa have been restored to the height of Italian Baroque splendor and feature antiques and hand-selected paintings in every room. Architectural details include stone arches, tiled mosaics, frescoes, and painted ceilings. Though the furnishings are period, the amenities—such as wireless Internet, full air-conditioning, and spa facilities—are modern.

First Floor/Lower Level: This level is taken up by the spa treatment areas, including a sauna (hot and cold), indoor heated swimming pool (8 x 3.5 m), Turkish bath, shower, tepidarium, Jacuzzi on a tiled outdoor terrace, and rooms where professionals can administer various massage treatments, each lasting 50 minutes. There is also a plasma television and relaxing music piped in for your enjoyment and relaxation. The villa’s Catholic chapel is also located on this level.

Second Floor (main entrance): An interior staircase leads up from the spa to the first floor where the large kitchen, formal dining room and separate living area are located. The kitchen is equipped with microwave, toaster, oven, American and Italian style coffee makers, traditional wood-burning pizza and bread oven, dishwasher, and dryer. The expansive living room can be used for work or play and, depending on your needs, can serve as dining room, relaxing room, or office. A large library with old and new books and a computer with wireless Internet and fax line is provided as well.

Third Floor: Two bedrooms with queen beds (160 cm) and full en-suite bathrooms with showers are located on this floor. The bedrooms are characterized by their antique furnishings, painted walls and ceiling frescoes. Each bedroom has a private terrace with incredible views over Positano.

Fourth Floor: The fourth floor has an independent entrance and contains a penthouse with two bedrooms, each with queen beds (160 cm) and full en-suite bathrooms with shower.
