Villa di Classe
Luxury 5 bedroomed villa in Positano with indoor heated swimming pool1638
Positano has been called the pearl of the Amalfi Coast for its particular beauty that makes it stand out from all the other localities along the coast. Villa di Classe could be defined as one of the most beautiful residential pearls to be found along this stretch of coastline.
Located in the upper part of Positano, it occupies a dominant position that offers a unique view of the town and the bay. From the large terraces it is possible to look down on the succession of typical multi-coloured houses that climb down to the sea, as though from the bridge of a ship. Villa di Classe dates back to 1700 and is one of the most elegant examples of Italian baroque: the ceilings on the "piano nobile" or main floor are sumptuously decorated and the stuccoes, typical of the period, are of the highest quality. During the first half of the 20th century the villa hosted some very famous European intellectuals and artists who were attracted by the charm of Positano and the mild climate that characterizes the bay.
The recent renovation work has restored the villa to its ancient splendor, transforming it into a prestigious holiday residence of the highest quality. The atmosphere and charm of this villa make it truly unique. It has all mod cons: Wi-Fi internet and air conditioning, spa with Turkish bath, sauna and a beautiful indoor swimming pool (8 x 3m). The spa is connected to the outdoor terrace which also has an ornamental-style whirlpool bathtub.
There is an excellent chef service available to guests staying at the villa. The villa is in the town of Positano where all the shops and restaurants are just a short walk away. It is not necessary to have a car, however, a parking space can be booked at an extra cost.

The villa was more than I expected. It was really one of a
kind and so memorable. The downside of the villa is that the
location is challenging and I don't recommend it for anyone who
can't walk 340 steep steps. I am 55 and in fair shape and I found
the trek to the villa to be challenging whereby I had to stop many
times in my journey to catch my breath. There are no roads to reach
the villa, just stairs. The villa hires very strong Italian men to
help with the luggage so all we needed to do is to worry about was
getting ourselves to the property. But the challenging stairs are
not to be overlooked.
On the positive side, the villa is large, beds are comfortable, views are like no other, and overall property was well maintained. The staff was exceptional. Our cook was fabulous and really understood my daughter's gluten allergy and was extremely accommodating in making her meal gluten free. We always had a gluten free cake available for a snack all day long. Although I had dinner reservations scheduled for every night, we decided to stay at the villa for dinner because dinners there were that good!! The cook had an assistant who decorated the table like it was a piece of art at each meal. I had to take pictures before our family sat for dinner so I could remember how beautiful the table looked.
The villa has an interesting history. There was an article in The NY Times about the villa in 2010. It was originally owned by a Bishop and built in 1716. The current owners restored it and decorated it in the period of when it was built. A few celebrities have stayed at the villa including Picasso, John Steinbeck, Justin Timberlake and Madonna. I only discovered this information after I arrived by googling the villa's name. I was desperate to find out more information because it was so amazing.
