Above the sea on the rocky edge of Positano, where for generations the inspiration of poets and artists has been ignited, lies Villa Oliviero with its dramatic view of the Amalfi Coast and within walking distance of the town centre
Built in 1400 CE and boasting a magnificent setting on the cliffs overlooking Positano, Praiano, and the islands of Galli, Villa Oliviero is a splendid coastal residence.
Situated at the heart of Italy's Amalfi Coast and, like the centuries-old town which surrounds it, the property is blessed with a unique and quite unforgettable charm.
It boasts a swimming pool designed to follow the natural contours of the rocks, an outdoor Jacuzzi for up to six people, a steam room and a small gym.
Located in the centre of Positano, the villa is approximately 200 meters off the main coastal road that passes through Positano; guests follow a pedestrian pathway of about 90 steps up to the front gate of the villa.
The house comes with six bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning, a beautiful garden and dramatic sea views.
All bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and air conditioning system.

The iconic representation of an Amalfi town, Positano’s buildings cling in tiers to the rock face and the small houses huddling together are the subject of countless photos. The whiteness of the buildings is a perfect canvas for the bright flowers which decorate the houses and the small artisans' shops with their multi-hued fabrics. An unbelievable vista welcomes the visitor: in 1953 John Steinbeck wrote: “Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone”. More than 50 years on, his words still ring true. The best way to get around Positano is generally by foot: there are dozens of narrow alleys and stairways that make walking relatively easy and joyously traffic-free. Otherwise an orange bus follows the lower ring road every half-hour, passing along Viale Pasitea, Via Cristoforo Colombo and Via Marconi. Positano is ideally situated to explore other nearby towns such as Ravello, Amalfi and Sorrento. The Amalfi coast has been declared one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites for its undisputed beauty and the uniqueness of its natural landscape.
