Villa Princi is a fantastic, elegant baroque villa, set in a lovely garden oasis, just up the hill from Positano and the sea

Villa Princi dates back to 1700 and is one of the most elegant examples of Italian baroque: the ceilings on the “piano nobile” or main floor are sumptuously decorated and the stuccoes, typical of the period, are of the highest quality. During the first half of the 20th century the villa hosted some very famous European intellectuals and artists who were attracted by the charm of Positano and the mild climate that characterizes the bay.  Today, Villa Princi has established itself in a select class of super-luxury villas in Italy, attracting celebrities, business leaders and aristocrats from across North America and Europe, as well as families and groups of friends who can appreciate the exceptional experience this home offers its guests.

The recent renovation work has restored the villa to its ancient splendor, transforming it into a prestigious holiday residence of the highest quality.  A painstaking seven year restoration combines ultra-luxury accommodation with the highest possible standard for art and objects d’art of significant cultural interest. The atmosphere and charm of this villa make it truly unique. It has all modern conveniences: Wi-Fi internet and air conditioning, spa with Turkish bath, sauna and a beautiful indoor swimming pool (8 x 3m). The spa is connected to the outdoor terrace which also has an ornamental-style whirlpool bathtub. There is an excellent chef service available to guests staying at the villa

The villa is in the town of Positano where all the shops and restaurants are just a short walk away. It is not necessary to have a car, however, a parking space can be booked at an extra cost.

This property is a wonderful year round destination, and should be considered anytime of year.
