Positano has been called the pearl of the Amalfi Coast for its many special characteristics that raise it above all of the other towns on the coast, and we could call Villa Affresco a pearl among the residential properties along this stretch of coast. Its position allows you to enjoy a unique view of the town of Positano and of the gulf. From its large terraces you dominate, as if on the captain's bridge of a ship, the typical whitewashed houses that slope down, one on top of the other, right down to the sea.
Villa Affresco goes back to the 1700s and after several restorations during this time, it has now been completely renovated as a prestigious residence, bathrooms, internal décor using the latest techniques and the kitchen has a professional edge with every possible accessory. The furnishings are partly antique and those that are not are inspired by the original era of the villa, which is on three floors, each of which opens onto a large, elegantly furnished, panoramic terrace.
Ground floor, steps lead down from the entrance to the ground floor is the large living-room with various exits to the panoramic terrace, the furnishings are elegant and refined, and include some antique pieces. The Louis 16th style chairs in various parts of the drawing room are truly unique. You can find a small cloakroom with a WC with wash basin, professional kitchen, 1 double bedroom (bed 1.7 x 1.9m) with bathroom with shower and access to the panoramic terrace.
On the first floor accessed from two staircases located on opposite sides of the ground floor there are 4 double bedrooms each with bathroom with bath/shower, all with access to the second terrace, of which one is walk-through or otherwise with independent access from the terrace. One small single bedroom with bathroom with shower (suitable for staff).
The lower floor (Pool Level) there is a further double bedroom suite with shower room with an independent entrance and a walking through to a further bedroom double/ twin bedroom with balcony and wonderful views of Positano & the sea
The Swimming pool area has corner bar and bathroom with shower. The swimming pool is 4 meters (13 feet) large by 10 meters (33 feet) long, 1.4 meters (4.6 feet) deep. From the swimming pool, you will enjoy a spellbinding view of the main beach of Positano (Spiaggia Grande), of the coast and of the sea. Equipped with sun bathing terrace and a corner bar with refrigerator and ice maker lie on the lowest-level terrace. The pool is open from the beginning of April until the end of October. Please note that the pool can be heated.
The Garden is partly shaded by olive trees. You will be able to reach it from the swimming pool area (you will find a barbecue area here).
There is a laundry room from the bathroom in the pool area. Here you will find a washing machine, a clothes dryer, an iron and an ironing board at your disposal.
