Description

The Palazzo a Positano is located in an excellent position to enjoy the beauty of Positano and the services that the “pearl of the coast” offers. It is located near the center (reachable by foot in about 10 minutes) while at the same time, far from the tourist frenzy. The beautiful baroque palace is laid out in the classic 17th-century scheme over four floors. A central staircase descends from the “noble” entry floor level, to the Relax area (level -1) or up to the suites and rooms of the upper floors (levels 1 and 2). The front facade overlooks panoramic terraces and balconies. Two side wings complete the terrace on the main floor giving the building a C-shape projected towards the sea that ensures maximum privacy. The Palace has no driveway but can be reached with 190 steps uphill. By purchasing the "Il San Pietro" package, you can arrive or depart from the hotel's private dock. Il Palazzo is spread over 5 levels, 4 of which are residential and 1 for service use. A shaded garden of lemon, orange, and grapefruit trees stretches along with the top level. A relaxation area can be found on the bottom level, which includes a pool with a swimming current, a massage room in the ancient Palatine chapel, a steam room, and sauna, and a panoramic terrace with sunbeds and a jacuzzi decorated in majolica tiles. Rich in architectural details, the “noble” floor with the main entrance opens onto a wonderful panoramic terrace furnished with lounge chairs and a large table for outdoor dining.

HISTORY

The date 1716is carved in stone at the entrance to the Palazzo in Positano, the year in which the palace became a bishop's residence. Its foundation dates further back to the second half of the 17th century and the original project perfectly took into account the aesthetic canons of the time, inside as well as outside. Its history as a religious residence is evoked in the spiritualized style of the structure and furnishings, as well as numerous detailed paintings of the battle of Lepanto, the pride of the Holy League). The precious interiors (rich in stuccos, vaults, marble, lacquered doors, and other ornaments) and above all the elegantfaçade overlooking Positano with statues, loggia, and panoramic terraces and balconies are reminiscent of the Baroque style of that era. Today, these characteristics give it a strong and distinguishing character in the town, as does its striking Pompeii red color, greatly in vogue in the 18th century. The Palace is located in the Li Parlati district of Positano where numerous other sumptuous villas were built, causing locals to call this zone "'a via re case longhe", or "the road of longhouses" because of the large palaces that stood out in contrast to the more common houses of the time. In1926, Eduard Gillhausen came to Positano to cure himself of a post-WW1 nervous breakdown he had suffered. A German from Hattingen and exponent of the art and design school called Bauhaus, he arrived with his lover Hedwig to start a new life. They seemed to come out most especially at night; it is said that he could only be met from sunset onwards, likely linked to his studies in astronomy and a passion for stargazing). DonEduardo, as the locals called him, settled in the Palazzo, in love with the wonderful view, the peace of the place and with Eva-Maria (in the meantime, she too had changed names). Together they would host great icons of twentieth-century culture like Pablo Picasso, JohnSteinbeck, Alberto Moravia, and many others. In2003, the Palace passed to new owners who, over the course of four years, subjected the structure to a skillful restoration returning the villa to its original splendor.
