Positano Villa Rental Photos and Description

Ultra Deluxe, Fully Staffed, 8 Bedroom/12 Bath Palazzo Set Above Positano

Palazzo Antica is located within walking distance to Positano, so a car is not necessary. If you have imagined yourself in a villa which combines classic, relaxed Mediterranean lifestyle with the highest quality of comfort and amenities, Palazzo San Giacomo is your dream come true!

Please contact us for 2017 rates.

The impeccable services and warm hospitality offered, combined with unique interior decor, provide a truly magical experience. Experience Positano at its finest—a midst lush gardens, endless terraces, panoramic views, and an infinity pool with Positano at your feet.

Palazzo Antica, built in 1741, is the largest private villa available for rental in Positano. All eight bedrooms have en suite bathrooms with direct access to terraces. An additional four children can be accommodates so groups of up to 20 are welcome.. This property can combine with neighboring Villa Cardinale for an additional 9 guests. The property has been completely restored within the last five years.

The central level is for common use, the bedrooms and baths divided on the upper and lower levels. While there are some differences in configuration from the upper four to the lower four bedrooms, all are equally well furnished with antiques, hand-painted antique Neapolitan tiles from the 18th century and brand new upholstery and linens. The amenities include separate air conditioning units for the bathrooms and the bedrooms. The landscaping of every terrace and garden area is thoughtful and beautifully maintained to add to the lushness of the environment. The fruit from the garden finds its way to the breakfast table in the form of fresh squeezed juice and marmalade.

Beyond the exceptional amenities, what makes a villa vacation an exceptional experience is the staff looking after you day to day. At Palazzo Antica, they are smiling and attentive without being overbearing as well as flexible, accommodating changes of plan. The waiter speaks English the entire team is utterly discreet in the way they deliver their own special brand of hospitality, viewing themselves not so much as hosts but as your assistants.

In particular, Palazzo Antica is fortunate to have the fabulous Consiglia in the kitchen eight hours a day, preparing up to two meals as you prefer. This format for services is ideal as you can choose to sleep in and take a slow morning with a large cooked brunch then dinner, or come back from a day excursion to Pompeii, Herculaneum, Capri or the like for a refreshing swim and shower before coming to the terrace amid the scents of an abundant and delicious meal to be served al fresco. Consiglia is a gem and a superb cook, happy to welcome guests to the kitchen to watch her work. Hands-on cooking classes -- using the Villa's antique oven for bread and pizza or learning how to put together any of the regional specialties -- can be arranged as well.

Truly a 6 star experience

  • 5 of 5

Breathtaking views, wonderful staff, the Villa is actually better than the photos. The bedrooms are all large with whisper quiet aircon, the principle rooms are all wonderfully furnished, the outdoor areas magnificent! Bit of a hike walking up to the Villa, need to keep that in mind if some guests are mobility challenged.wonderful place, all surprises on the upside!
