Amalfi Coast, Italy · Villa - Positano · 5 Bedrooms · 9 people

Dating from the 1700s, this magnificent Baroque style Palazzo is totally unique and one of the loveliest properties we have seen for rent anywhere! It is situated high in Positano, about 10 – 15 minutes walk up from the town and beach and has the most wonderful views over the town, the dramatic coastline and the sea. Decorated by the best craftsmen at the time, the property has been wonderfully preserved and still features the marvellous lacquered doors, painted ceilings and original stucco works. The current owners have restored the palazzo to all its former glory and more! With the most incredible eye for detail and exquisite taste, they have created a haven of relaxation, combined with enormous beauty, and a true sense of the property’s history and culture.

This luxury villa in Positano is on five levels, with an enchanting garden at the highest level, planted with citrus trees and figs, and with a gazebo for relaxing in the shade. The next level down houses the two guest bedrooms, then down from here are the two exceptional master bedrooms, with panelled, frescoed ceilings and decorated and furnished in an opulent, Baroque style, with enormous paintings, columns, mirrors and silks. The entrance level features a large terrace, furnished for sitting and dining outdoors, and with a long hydro-massage tub. Also on this level are the large and beautiful kitchen, with stone archways, and tiled with ancient majolica tiles.
