About the property

As ornate and colorful as its prime Positano setting, Villa Dorata is among our most opulent villas on the Amalfi Coast. With frescoed ceilings, a private wine cellar, and a full-service spa, this luxurious Baroque-style home has to be seen to be believed.

Surrounded by lemon and orange trees, Villa Dorata offers panoramic views of the sea and Positano, one of the Amalfi Coasts most picturesque towns. The magnificent yet traditional exterior hides a wealth of amenities, including a private spa with a Turkish steam bath, tiled pool with waterfall and resistance swimming option, sauna, hot tub, massage room, and more.

Inside the palazzo, the formal living room features gilt-framed paintings and a grand fireplace. Built-in bookshelves add a sense of history to the dining room, decorated with a crystal chandelier and antiques, and red drapes frame the villas sea views. With a stone fireplace and two pizza ovens, the Italian kitchen is every chefs dream; for a memorable experience, take advantage of the complimentary Italian cooking class offered with each stay.

On the first floor, the two lavish master bedrooms feature spacious sitting rooms, private en-suite bathrooms, and access to the sea view terrace. Upstairs, two junior queen suites offer views of the sea, gardens and Positano, with private access to the walled citrus garden. An additionalspare bedroomwith single bedanda private bathroom provides additional space for a teenage child or member of staff.

Known for its exceptional restaurants and pebbled beaches, the town center of Positano is just a 15-minute walk away. Daily continental breakfasts and cook service are included with your stay at Villa Dorata, offering a truly relaxing escape. After all, what could be more appealing after a day exploring the Amalfi Coasts attractions, than a restoring spa session and dinner on the sea-view terrace?

Additional Information

Special Characteristics

The high Baroque architectural details evident throughout the villa are highlighted by a rich jewel tone color scheme, gilt-framed works of art, and romantic terraces. There are sumptuously soft sofas, crystal chandeliers, lavish draperies, inlaid ceilings, and exquisite alcoves that make a stay at villa Dorata a life-long memory. Outside, Eden-like gardens and surrounding groves make lounging and dining al fresco as privileged an experience as life within. Couple all this with a full staff just waiting to attend to your needs, including freshly squeezed juices from the lemons and oranges grown outside your bedroom windows, homemade marmalades and pastries, the finest wine cellar, and two traditional Italian pizza fornos!

What to do along the Amalfi Coast:

In addition to lovely beaches, Positano offers an abundance of cafes, shops, art galleries and restaurants. A scenic drive along the coastal road (SS145) takes visitors to Praiano, Amalfi and the spellbinding up-hill town of Ravello, with its incomparable belvedere. Other excursion possibilities include a boat trip to the islands, a visit to vibrant Napoli or Salerno, or an exploration of Pompeii and Herculaneumthe fascinating ruins of ancient cities destroyed by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in the 1st century A.D.

It's hard to sum up perfection in 70 characters but it was!

  • 5 of 5

The villa looked exactly like the pictures and the view was breathtaking! We had an incredible time! The staff who took care of us were unbelievably gracious and helpful. Vincenzo, our cook, made wonderful dinners for us - we never went out to a restaurant. Sara was delightful as well as Anna Maria who had our rooms put back in order before we finished breakfast everyday and Chiara was always available and helpful. We couldn't have been more pleased!

World Class Accommodation and Service

  • 5 of 5

Spectacular villa with stunning views. My family, girlfriend and I spent the week here and couldn't be happier. It was the first time my parents traveled abroad and still talk about the villa and Positano every day. I even got engaged while I was there :) For the 7 of us the size of the villa was perfect and quickly felt like home. The staff were phenomenal and felt like family. This was my first booking through Luxury Retreats and the process was simple and inspired confidence for the entire experience. I even had the pleasure of meeting Veronica while I was staying in Florence in order to go over all the details and itinerary in person. I would do it all over again.
