VILLA D'ORO - POSITANO
A luxurious historic villa set in one of the most alluring sceneries of Italy, with views over Positano and the sea. Built in the 1700s by a wealthy merchant, it resides in the oldest part of Positano, overlooking the harbour, from where the merchants could see their ships sailing in.
Like the villa's first owners, today's guests sleep in sumptuous suites decorated with exquisite antiques and period paintings; the only difference between then and now being the addition of the latest in contemporary technology and comfort. The villa was completely restored in 2013.
150 steps from the street level take us to the property that develops over 4 floors, with1000 square meters of garden and 350 square meters of terraces. We find the main entrance on the central floor where there is a large terrace, the well equipped kitchen, a dining room with sofas and satellite TV and 4 toilets.
On the upper floor we find 4 double bedrooms with en-suite bathroom with shower and terrace with extraordinary views. There is a possibility of adding 4 extra beds in the bedrooms, on request.
On the lower level there are 4 more double bedrooms with en-suite bathroom with shower and terrace.
Two new suites have been added to the loft area of the villa. Each suite is composed of two double/twin rooms separated by a door, with small en-suite bathrooms with shower. Each of the suites can accommodate four guests. The rooms share the entrance but have individual bathrooms.
