About the property

Accommodation: Villa, 3 Double Bedrooms + 1 Twin bedroom (sleeps 8), 5 Bathrooms, 1 kitchen, 1 dining / living room, swimming pool Villa Magenta, perched over the sea in Positano, was originally built in the 1300's. The current owner enlarged and fully restored the property for her retirement, creating a serene and sophisticated home where she enjoys the long spring and autumn seasons. With four double ensuite bedrooms, this is an ideal villa for four couples. The villa is completely private, part of an exclusive area occupying a peninsula one kilometer from the center of Positano and is one of the most charming of the many seaside towns on the Amalfi coast. With its early spring and long seasons, the Amalfi Coast is an appealing destination from April to November. You can relax by the pool, shop or visit museums, explore or enjoy staying close to home. One of the great pleasures is being car-free in the Amalfi Coast. Boats, taxis and hired cars are available. To reach Villa Magenta there is a public path and winding stairway that brings you from the road to the Villa. The front door opens onto a spectacular terrace with flowering potted plants and vines, trees, bronze wall sculptures and views of the Tyrrhenian Sea. On the terrace there is the opportunity to enjoy elegant dining al fresco at a long, marble-top table for 12 with iron chairs. Set along the edge of the terrace, there are also three marble-top iron coffee tables. Double doors connect the terrace with the interior of the house. Near the house there is a swimming pool (10 x 5 meters - open from May) surrounded by a terraced hill. The bronze lion serves as a fountain head and a bamboo-covered pergola provides shade for drinks or reading at the far end of the terrace, and offers a completely different view of the coast and property. The sun beds, chairs and umbrellas can be moved around to suit individual preference. The gate has been added to the pool area from the terrace, comfort to those traveling with smaller children. From the terrace, a short staircase leads down to the Bungalow, and additional small apartment for two that can be a supplement for a fifth couple who want to vacation at Villa Magenta. The owner maintains a private apartment as well, but is very discreet if she is in residence when the villa is occupied. From the Villa, the public walking paths and staircases take you down to the pebble beach "Arienzo". We highly recommend taking advantage of the beach club there, renting a bed makes for a comfortable day seaside with access to facilities. From there you can hire a boat for an excursion to reach the town of Positano by sea (there is no pier, you step into the shallows to get on board). Parking is always available on the main road along the Amalfi Coast, although we strongly recommend a private rental car and using local car and driver services during an Amalfi Coast vacation. On the ground floor there is a living room that can be reached directly by double doors from the terrace with fireplace, living room for 10 people, satellite TV, CD player, internet access. Stairs lead to the upper level. The corridor leads to the bedrooms and private bathrooms. Adjacent there is a double bedroom. Annex Can be rented with an additional payment; please inquire. Open staircase from Villa's patio leads to lower terrace. Direct entrance from the garden to living room with couch, desk and bookshelves. hallway leads to double bedroom (twins can combine to form king). Bathroom (tub with hand-held shower). Private apartment is also on this level but the accomodation is completely independent. The owner is very discreet if she is in residence while there are guests at the Villa and Annex. Position: Positano is in a good position for excursions throughout the area as it is very centrally located. Amalfi and Ravello are not even an hour away; Capri is 30 - 40 minutes by boat; Procida and Ischia make an engaging day trip for spas and beaches and sparkling wines. Certainly more than one day could be spent in Naples or Pompeii. These are just some of the best known destinations.

Fax machine in the Dependence can be used by the maid on behalf of guests. The owner lives in the Dependence part of the year, but has its own separate entrance and is very discrete.
