Top places to stay in Positano

Villa Treville
This opulent seaside hotel in the former villa-based home of opera director Franco Zeffirelli is 9 km from Grotta dello Smeraldo and 17 km from the Sirenusa islands.

Le Sirenuse
Le Sirenuse opened in 1951, when four Neapolitan brothers, the Marchesi Aldo, Paolo, Anna and Franco Sersale turned their summer house in Positano into a charming hotel, overlooking the bay of Positano. Today the 58-room resort is considered one of Italy’s leading seaside luxury hotels, though it still retains the intimate, cultured atmosphere of a private home.

Love Stories chapter 3 – Villa Treville was originally purchased in the 1920s by Mikhail Semenov, the Russian writer, who was the first to gather around him the cultural ferment that has always characterized Positano. With Franco Zeffirelli, the property was often visited by dancers, singers, writers, musicians, painters, actors and intellectuals from all over the globe. The estate was lovingly refurbished and further developed under the artistic direction of Zeffirelli during his 35 years in residence with the inclusion of new gardens, terraces and hidden pools. He hired his friend Renzo Mongiardino, who collaborated on many of his theatre and opera projects, to design the exquisitely crafted interiors. The work was subsequently continued with meticulous attention to detail as Villa Treville was converted into a boutique hotel under new ownership advised by architect Fausta Gaetani, a friend and frequent guest of Mr Zeffirelli. From the time of Semenov, through the residence of Maestro Zeffirelli, Villa Treville has welcomed an amazing coterie of literari and stars of the stage and screen. As invitations were usually on condition of no photography, their presence has passed into local legend but their influence remains. That so many came, so often, and stayed for so long is testament to not only the graciousness of their hosts, but also to the delightful ingredients that make our small part of the Amalfi coast so special. ✨ #trevillelovestories #villatreville #positano #amalficoast #italy 🇮🇹 | 📷: @leonardocorredor
