Villa Veronica

Villa Veronica is an ultra deluxe, private, fully staffed villa set above the lively, chic town of Positano. 12 Bedrooms & 14 Bathrooms

Villa Veronica  is located within walking distance to Positano, so a car is not necessary. If you have imagined yourself in a villa which combines classic, relaxed Mediterranean lifestyle with the highest quality of comfort and amenities, Villa Veronica  is your dream come true!

The villa was completely restored in 2013.

The impeccable services and warm hospitality offered, combined with unique interior decor, provide a truly magical experience. Experience Positano at its finest—amidst lush gardens, endless terraces, panoramic views, and an infinity pool with Positano at your feet.

Villa Veronica, built in 1741,  is the largest private villa available for rental in Positano.  All 12 bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms with 8 bedrooms with direct access to terraces; all suites with exceptional views facing Positano & the Mediterranean.

This property can be combined with neighboring Villa Princi for an additional 9 guests. If the Villa Veronica’s two quads are used, this villa can accommodate 24 guests + 9 with Villa Princi + 12 combined with Villa Antonella for a total of 45 guests. These three villas are all connected by a lovely sidewalk with easy access between the properties.

Not recommended for the mobiity impaired; 150 stairs from street level to villa. Porter available to carry luggage etc 8am-6pm.

The central level is for common use, the bedrooms and baths divided on the upper and lower levels. While there are some differences in configuration from the upper four to the lower four bedrooms, all are equally well furnished with antiques, hand-painted antique Neapolitan tiles from the 18th century and brand new upholstery and linens. The amenities include separate air conditioning units for the bathrooms and the bedrooms. The landscaping of every terrace and garden area is thoughtful and beautifully maintained to add to the lushness of the environment. The fruit from the garden finds its way to the breakfast table in the form of fresh squeezed juice and marmalade.

Beyond the exceptional amenities, what makes a villa vacation an exceptional experience is the staff looking after you day to day. At Villa Veronica , they are smiling and attentive without being overbearing as well as flexible, accommodating changes of plan. The waiter speaks English the entire team is utterly discreet in the way they deliver their own special brand of hospitality, viewing themselves not so much as hosts but as your assistants.

In particular, Villa Veronica  is fortunate to have the fabulous Consiglia in the kitchen eight hours a day, preparing up to two meals as you prefer. This format for services is ideal as you can choose to sleep in and take a slow morning with a large cooked brunch then dinner, or come back from a day excursion to Pompeii, Herculaneum, Capri or the like for a refreshing swim and shower before coming to the terrace amid the scents of an abundant and delicious meal to be served al fresco. Consiglia is a gem and a superb cook, happy to welcome guests to the kitchen to watch her work. Hands-on cooking classes — using the Villa’s antique forno for bread and pizza or learning how to put together any of the regional specialties — can be arranged as well.
