  • Description

    Villa Fornillo is a much-loved and very charming 18th century home, full of warmth and character. It is ideally positioned in the Fornillo area of Positano on the Amalfi coast; high enough to enjoy the spectacular views and yet, close enough for a stroll to one of the areas nicest beaches. The entrance door hides a fragrant lemon grove, which runs along the ground floor rooms. One level up is a large paved terrace, a real garden of delight adorned with classic style columns supporting a thick and vibrant bougainvillea and wisteria pergola. The well-maintained interiors, featuring high vaulted ceilings and terracotta tiles, are furnished with fine period pieces. Many original paintings, portraits, prints and ceramics give the home a very intimate feeling and an old world atmosphere.

    On the ground floor is a large master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and tub, and a twin bedroom with a shower room. Both open onto the lemon garden terrace.

    On the first floor is the living room, featuring sofas and a large fireplace adorned with local ceramic tiles. A well-equipped kitchen hosts a cozy eating nook.

    Steps up to the Mezzanine floor lead to a dining corner with seating for seven and a door out to the upper terrace.

    13 steps up to the second floor leads to a double bedroom with matrimonial gondola-style bed and built-in safe, and a single bedroom, both with views and a shower room to share.

    Access to Villa Fornillo is either from 22 steps off street level or via 25 internal steps from a private garage, a real rarity in Positano.

    The poet Boccaccio writes in his 14th century work, 'Decameron', that the Amalfi Coast is "...the only delectable part of Italy, which the inhabitants there dwelling do call the coast of Malfie, full of towns, gardens, springs and wealthy men". And Positano is arguably the most picturesque and photographed of the coastal towns. The town exudes drama, from its steeply stacked houses cascading down the hillside in an avalanche of pastels, to its plethora of expensive boutiques and delectable restaurants. Positano is also about steps, and lots of them. Sturdy knees and sturdier shoes are a must. Rediscovered after WWII by luminaries such as Picasso, Stravinsky, Steinbeck, Klee and even Lenin, Positano has been a destination town ever since. And they all agreed on one thing, that Positano is full of superlatives and unsurpassed beauty.
