Villa Giano is a luxury Baroque style villa located in Positano, just 2 km away from the beach. It has 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and can host up to 9 people. The villa has air conditioning, Wi-Fi internet, indoor thermal pool, sauna and a garden.

 

Located on the peak of the bay of Positano, Villa Giano was the residence for the Episcopal in the Baroque era in 1716 and was decorated with the best furnishings that was to be found in that period. The doors are of lacquered wood, the ceilings like paintings, the decorations in stucco and old lace, all made by the master craftsmanship of the era.

 

Although Positano lived through times of crisis, Villa Giano was never abandoned and remained in tack with all its’ luxury. Then in the beginning of the 1900’s, even during the war, by accident some tourists happened to be passing by and were shocked by the beauty of the area. This is how Positano slowly attracted more and more artists and people to fall in love with the place.

A car is not necessary to stay at Villa Giano. If you have a car, you may park it in a public parking lot for an extra daily fee (valet service included).

 

The villa and its' services are well maintained and taken care of.

There is a large satellite flat screen television, High-speed Wi-Fi internet, a Spa area with Turkish bath tub, sauna and thermal pool.

 

The outdoor façade is painted with a hot red colour and light yellow. This pomegranate red was originally invented and used by the Romans and very typical in the area. Both the outdoors and indoors of the villa have been maintained in Baroque style originally Napoletano, characterized in the era of when it was built.

The floor is made of antique terracotta tiles alternated with majolica and its rooms feature vaulted ceilings from the 17th century with golden stucco decorations, partly in gold, allowing to achieve the same bright yellow colour as the rest of the property.

In the niches along the stairs, you will find 2 beautiful large and precious antique porcelain vases reflecting the same style of those displayed at the National Museum of Art Capodimonte in Naples. The vases date back to the 17th century and are painted with scenes from the mythological and Neapolitan landscapes showing Mount Vesuvius.

Positano Neighbourhood

view

Villa Giano is within ten minutes’ walk to Positano where you will find a supermarket, restaurants and specialty boutiques. The closest beach from the villa is Marina Grande Beach at 1 km away.

You may reach the villa from the main square of Positano by going up an 18th century street, then crossing a little street and go up 190 short steps, slowly while crossing a perfumed citrus garden.

 

Positano is one of the best known places on the Amalfi Coast, not least for its picturesque staircases, its whitewashed houses that follow the natural course of the mountain and create a vertical landscape. Positano is famous for its handmade leather sandals and cotton/linen clothes (the "Moda Positano"), for its beautiful 19th and 20th century Mediterranean style buildings and for its postcard landscape with the tiled dome of the main church and the Li Galli islands in the background.

 

Magically suspended between the blue sky and the iridescent sea, the Amalfi Coast seems to have been born from the palette of a painter who wanted to use the warmest gradients of colour to create a landscape that enchants the visitor at first sight. This is the land where the sweet scent of lemon blossoms harmonises with the most aromatic of Mediterranean vegetation and the pungent aroma of salinity; where the brilliant colours of the majolica domes, bougainvillea and carnation pergolas give an obvious colourful touch to the typical whitewashed houses clinging to the last branches of the Lattari Mountains that plunge dramatically into the sea. A vertical landscape, in short, characterised by a picturesque labyrinth of stairs and narrow streets, linking the two main elements of this landscape: the mountains and the sea. A continuous succession of capes and coves, bays and fjords, interspersed with pebble beaches and rocks on which the old viceroyal towers can still be seen. All the towns on the Amalfi Coast are linked by the scenic SS. 163, still considered one of the most beautiful roads in Italy. Following the natural course of the coastline, the road is full of curves offering new and spectacular views.
