A sumptuous and impressive vacation villa in desirable Positano with a birds eye view of ocean and village.
This is a new entrant into the select class of super luxury villas in Italy, situated along the alluring Amalfi Coast in Positano.
A painstaking seven year restoration combines a compelling combination of ultra luxury accommodation with the highest possible standard for art and appointments of significant cultural interest. In a region best known for the sybaritic pleasures of sun and sea, this Palazzo gives you this and more, an opportunity to step into a lifestyle rich with beauty and refined high culture as well as pure indulgent relaxation.
The property was built over 35 years, finishing with the High Baroque of the late 17th century. The result is a sumptuous and highly detailed architecture that has been fully restored and embellished to an exacting standard and with an eye to welcoming the most discerning guests.
Visible from the approach of the Amalfi Drive, sitting as it does above the village of Positano and blessed with a position that ensures it is bathed by the first as well as the last light of the day. This is one of the many qualities that attracted the Vescovi to this exact setting when they constructed this palazzo for the church.
A handsome and elegantly formal facade faces the receding landscape of the Amalfi coast to the west. The vista is of successive hills in ever diminishing shades green, blue or grey. These are punctuated on the horizon with the clearly visible form of the Tre Faraglioni of Capri.
Both of the expansive front terraces of the villa afford the romantic and ever changing panorama of this dramatic coastline.
The Palazzo is reached off a series of walkways and characteristic shallow stairs above the town. Protected by its ample terraces and gardens from the bustle and tumult of the town below, the Palazzo is a world unto itself.
The villa is exceptional in many ways, among them its position with gardens behind and to the side, with terraces in front. This structure permits light and air to penetrate the villa from all sides. This is a very unusual feature for villas of the Amalfi Coast.
An imposing architectural achievement in its own right, the Palazzo enjoys an equal distinction with its full restoration. Each wall and ceiling is painted with the utmost care and attention to amplifying the considerable architectural refinements of the building.
The interiors are sumptuous and each work of art and each painting was carefully selected for its appropriateness to the style and period of such a significant villa. Many of the artifacts remaining from the original owners, including a substantial tabernacle in the private chapel below.
The grand central staircase is embellished with fabulous statues.
The exact symmetry and careful proportion of the interior is amplified by the restoration of each set of original painted double doors. More than fifty original four and five foot high cotta vases, originally for storing wine, oil and grain, were reclaimed from the interior during the restoration and have been re used in this thoroughly modern vacation villa.
The well traveled owners have drawn from their own exacting standards in preparing their house for guests.
The staff is well trained and managed discreetly to ensure a seamless experience of service.
