Amalfi, Sorrento and Islands - Positano
Palazzo Santa Croce
Location and Surrounding Area
Located near the heart of Positano, this elegant five-bedroom villa is the perfect place for a stylish break on one of the most famous stretches of coastline in the Mediterranean. Palazzo Santa Croce features a spacious panoramic terrace and sweeping views of the sea, providing the ultimate retreat on the Amalfi Coast. The Sorrentine Peninsula juts into the sea like a pointing finger, its rugged shores sprinkled with some of Italy’s most spectacular beaches, its bucolic interior molded by the limestone Monti Lattari.
The sight of Positano from a distance is breathtaking. Color is everywhere, reflecting on the tranquil sea, the silvery pebbled beach and the gleaming Majolica-domed church of Santa Maria Assunta. The houses built up from the waterside, accessible to one another via an endless array of steep stairs, boast pale sorbet colors. In summer, when the serried ranks of sunbeds fill up quickly, take a boat to explore the many small coves up and down the coast.
The center of Sorrento is laid out on a Roman grid of narrow lanes now lined with restaurants serving pasta and shops selling souvenirs.But away from the well-worn paths are little-explored nooks and crannies. Then there are traditional greengrocers and haberdashers huddled behind wooden shop fronts, the medieval palaces along Via Pietà, the magnificent courtyard of Palazzo Correale, and artisan workshops producing the same wood intarsia for which the town became famous in the 18th century.
There's a lot to be said for leaving the best until last, and for many Ravello is the jewel in the coastal crown. If Positano is the glamour-puss of the Amalfi Coast, Ravello is its refined, aristocratic cousin. Nestled high on a hill above the sea, Ravello is famous for its secluded villas, ravishing gardens, magnificent views and romantic sense of faded glory have inspired a steady stream of writers, artists and musicians since the days of the Grand Tour.
Palazzo Santa Croce is 61 km from Naples Capodichino International Airport and 289 km from Rome Leonardo da Vinci International Airport. Conca dei Marini is 11 km from the villa, Sorrento is 16 km, Amalfi is 18 km, Vico Equense is 20 km, Nerano is 21 km, Ravello is 22 km, Maiori is 23 km, Pompeii is 35 km, Herculaneum is 51 km, and Naples is 57 km.

Located in the picturesque hilltop town of Positano, Palazzo Santa Croce boasts a generous fully-furnished terrace and expansive panoramic views, providing the ultimate retreat in one of the most evocative corners on the Amalfi Coast. Perched 194 steps above the sea, the spectacular cliff-top setting of the villa ensures superb panoramas. Offering an impressive sense of elegance, Palazzo Santa Croce can accommodate up to nine guests featuring five bedrooms spread over three levels.
With spectacular views of the town below and the crystal-clear waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea, this Baroque-style villa boasts a generous terrace perfect for dining and lounging al fresco while enjoying the orange-scented breeze. Offering a calm atmosphere, the villa features a spacious terrace complete with antique-tiled fountain. Surrounded by orange, lemon and mandarin groves, the villa also boasts a quaint loggia inviting guests to unwind while enjoying the spectacular views of the sea.
The Baroque architectural details evident throughout the villa are highlighted by rich jewel-tone color scheme and gilt-framed works of art, giving the property a unique feel, much like stepping into a museum. Offering an elegant atmosphere, the entrance level of the villa boasts a formal living room with double doors leading to the main terrace, and a generous dining room leading to a professional kitchen with large stone fireplace and pizza oven. The entrance level also houses a study with sitting room and fireplace.
