About the villa
The high vaulted ceilings, hung with ornate chandeliers, are testament to the origins of this beautiful building. The air conditioning and hydro-massage bath are among contemporary comforts added to the romantic retreat. And the terrace, shaded and furnished for al fresco dining and lounging, is a timeless pleasure, with majestic views of the sea and the fabulously photogenic Positano hillside. Il Palazzetto is one of the exclusive apartments created from the 19th century Palazzo Margherita, which was the town’s first hotel.Carefully retaining its grandeur and unique atmosphere, the artistic owners have sympathetically restyled the historic hotel’s interiors, furnishing the apartments with a comfortable mix of modern and antique Italian pieces, highlighted with eclectic artworks. This one, with its romantically draped double bed, is a perfect place just for two, though the spacious sitting / dining room also has a sofa-bed for a third guest. Both rooms have French doors on to the terrace. And the beach, boat hire, boutiques and restaurants are all within a ten minute walk of the apartment.

It is no exaggeration to say that the 50km or so of coastline on the southern side of the Sorrentine Peninsula is among the most famous stretches in the world: the Amalfi Coast. The fishing towns turned resorts hanging from cliffs or wedged into coves; the azure views over the Bay of Salerno—it all looks exactly as you hoped. For centuries travellers have paused on the island of Ischia to soak in the thermal springs and laze by the sea. A Amalfi Coast villa holiday’s urban kick comes courtesy of Naples, home to museums of ancient art and, of course… pizza.
