About the villa
Exotic, sumptuous, this house was originally built by prosperous merchants trading with the East and in more recent times has been a retreat for artists and writers such as Picasso and Steinbeck. Built high above Positano, surrounded by hanging gardens, the views from its terraces are quite spectacular and the villa is bathed in sunshine throughout the day.
Spacious and extravagantly furnished rooms open out of each other like a series of ornate jewel-boxes, filled with some impressive paintings and statuary and with elaborate curtains and comfortably cushioned seating. Most rooms open on to private balconies or terraces, one of which forms the elegant setting for outdoor dining. Recent renovations have contributed numerous modern refinements amongst which are a magnificent full-sized indoor pool with spa, sauna and Turkish bath. A cook presides over a superbly characterful kitchen where modern equipment contrasts with beautiful old tiles and stone arches.
The property extends over five levels, with a garden full of fruit trees on the highest level and a lovely gazebo in which to relax and contemplate those stunning views.
A float of Euro 2,000 for food and beverage expenses is payable on arrival. Please note that Palazzo Santa Croce is 190 steps from the road so is not suitable for those with limited mobility.
