Positano, Italy

Description

This majestic tower is a prestigious and extremely picturesque beach resort on the stunning promontory of the Amalfi Coast with a unique history and an awe-inspiring location. This breathtaking estate, scaling four levels with a whole subterranean level built into the rocks, offers a enigmatic and fascinating atmosphere. The Torre is one of the most prestigious residences along the Amalfi Coast, given its breath-taking view overlooking the pristine sea and its splendid architecture and compelling history. This guardian tower was built by the Normans in the 13th century to protect the coast from attack by the Saracens army. The structure is composed by separated areas and levels all connected by different pathways, corridors and passages, an interior and the man-made structure that balance with the natural environment, which provides guests with ample space to enjoy both their private and common spaces. The interiors were designed by the famous futuristic architect and writer Gilbert Clavel, who transformed this marvellous space into a unique and inspiring architectural structure. Intellectuals and artists, such as Cocteau, Picasso, and Depero have been guests in this provocative paradise. There is a complete symbiosis between the architectural structure and the environment, where each element enhances the other thanks to the selection of colours, materials, light, and details - creating succint harmony. This gorgeous seaside residence is elegance without ostentation. The property is divided into three different structures: La Torre, Le Sirene, and Il Porticato. The estate can welcome 13 guests, boasting five double bedrooms with air-conditioning and three single bedrooms. The property also features nine bathrooms. La Torre, built upon different levels, features a fully-equipped, modern kitchen; a double/twin bedroom with windows overlooking the sea; a double bedroom; a spacious living room facing Positano; and a charming single bedroom, with a balcony overlooking the sea and the Li Galli’s Island. La Torre offers a 360-degree roof terrace view over the coast and the sea. Le Sirene features a spacious and bright double bedroom; a single bedroom; and a third floor dining and living room with a marvellous, spacious terrace with breathtaking views of both the Amalfi Coast and the Li Galli’s island. Il Porticato features a dining terrace that can accommodate all guests for lunch or dinners with a view of Positano framed by the arch of the stone of the building; a sitting room; two lovely double bedrooms; and a single bedroom. This ancient tower, a magnificent mansion with a private access to the sea, is built upon a rocky outcrop jutting into the turquoise sea, reachable only by boat or by a footpath from of the Positanos’ main beaches. The view, the location, and the structure of this property create a true postcard of the picturesque Amalfi Coast. It offers a truly luxurious Amalfi retreat.
