VILLA SAN PIETRO is a sumptuously and immaculately decorated residence that gives you a real historical sense of Positano.
Dating back to 1741 when wealthy merchants would view the entire harbour of Positano as their ships returned from sea, the villa is adorned with frescos and artworks by famous artists of the period. No expense was spared in creating a unique experience of true Italian opulence for its residents. Although built in the 18th Century, the Villa was renovated in 2013 ensuring that the antiques and period paintings now come with the latest in contemporary technology and comforts. It is very rare to be able to experience both the historical aspects alongside all the luxuries of modern living. Deep in the hills overlooking the beautifully picturesque setting of Positano, the Villa sleeps up to 16 guests in its 8 double suites set over 4 floors. Much thought has gone into the presentation and theme of each suite, giving the residents a treasure trove of beautiful art works and antiques to explore and appreciate. Each suite features a private bathroom embellished with handsome Neapolitan ceramics.
Walking through the villa is like a walk through the region’s aristocratic past. Enter either through the second floor main entrance, or from the Mediterranean garden brimming with lemon and orange trees and leading to panoramic views of the Amalfi coast from the terrace. Perfect for scenic breakfasts, romantic dinners and special sunset moments this 300 sqm terrace is an experience all of its own. You can always cool off in these stunning surroundings with a dip in the private swimming pool. On the second floor there is a wonderful, fully appointed kitchen. Enjoy the services of a personal chef who is at your disposal for the duration of your stay. There is no better way to experience typical local dishes made with love and care than by letting our chef cook you something to remember. Perhaps afterwards you can relax and unwind in the spacious living and dining areas on the same floor. When you stay at Villa San Pietro luxury is about more than just antiques and unique historical touches. It is also about providing for all your needs to provide a totally peaceful and worry-free stay. Everything is catered for, including a dedicated cleaning staff, a professional butler and an expert concierge with a full knowledge of the area and ability to fulfil all requests.
A stay at Villa San Pietro really is an idyllic getaway unlike anything else you will find. It’s a haven full of unique historical touches and contemporary luxury with 5-star personal service.
A boat trip
The best way to explore Italy's spectacular Amalfi Coast is absolutely by boat; better still by "gozzo", the traditional boat used by the area's fishermen.
Our concierge will be happy to organize excursions inclusive of visits to the best beach clubs and restaurants in the area, and, for those keen to sail a little farther afield, the nearby island of Capri.
• Spiaggia Grande :In the center of Positano, this is, as the name suggests, the biggest beach in town. It's the most glamorous too: home to numerous bars, restaurants and beach clubs.
• Fornillo : You can walk to Fornillo from Positano's Spiaggia Grande, via the "Lovers' Walk". Nestled in a bay, this little beach is surprisingly quiet and peaceful.
• Secret beaches : Positano's rocky coastline is home to dozens of hidden beaches, which can only be reached from the sea. If you want to explore them, we'll arrange a boat for you
