Palazzo Santa Croce | Amalfi Coast | Campania | Italy

Province of Salerno

Property Description

Palazzo Santa Croce is a super-luxury private palazzo perched 194 steps above the glorious Mediterranean and the light of Positano. Live like royalty in a villa decorated in high Baroque style—amidst lush, tasseled draperies; meticulously selected works of art; ornate chandeliers; exquisite frescoed ceilings; and vaulted alcoves. The exterior is an oasis of verdant gardens, fragrant citrus groves, and picturesque outdoor terraces with breathtaking panoramic ocean and village views.


Ground Floor (Entrance level): 1 bathroom.
First Floor: 

  • Master queen suite with sitting room and large en suite bathroom with large shower.
  • Master king suite with sitting room, two small balconies overlooking the garden, and en suite stone shower.
  • Access from both bedrooms to communal terrace with stunning views of Positano and Capri.

Second Floor (Garden level):

  • 2 double bedrooms, each with 1 queen bed and stunning views of the sea and either Positano or the front garden.
  • Both bedrooms have private bathrooms, private access to the garden, gazebo, and road.
  • 1 single bedroom with a private bathroom with shower.

Ground Floor (Entrance level): Study with sitting room and fireplace; office with fax/TV; formal living room with double doors leading to the front terrace; dining room leading to a large, professional kitchen with a large stone fireplace and 2 pizza ovens.
Lower Floor: Modern, full-service spa—complete with Turkish steam bath, hot-and-cold water showers, sauna, Jacuzzi with oxygen-therapy, and massage room; beautifully tiled pool with resistance swimming option and waterfall. Private chapel.

Dorata is equipped with a private terrace with an antique-tiled fountain. The ground level features a large terrace perfect for dining al fresco. At the garden level, enjoy orange, lemon, and mandarin groves and a quaint loggia to unwind. The center of Positano can be reached in eight minutes via steps through the main road (the beach and restaurants can be reached in 15 minutes).

The high Baroque architectural details evident throughout the villa are highlighted by rich jewel-tone color scheme, gilt-framed works of art, and romantic terraces. There are sumptuously soft sofas, crystal chandeliers, lavish draperies, inlaid ceilings, and exquisite alcoves that make a stay at Villa Dorata a life-long memory. Outside, Eden-like gardens and surrounding groves make lounging and dining al fresco as privileged an experience as life within. Couple all this with a full staff waiting to attend to your needs, including freshly squeezed juices from the lemons and oranges grown outside your bedroom windows, homemade marmalades and pastries, the finest wine cellar, and two traditional Italian pizza fornos!
