This used to be Franco Zeffirelli's house, overlooking the Bay of Positano, and a lot of the opulence from that era is retained to give the hotel a luxurious feel, although calling it a hotel is probably a misnomer. It's more like having a break at a friends coastal home. Even though the hotel was full to capacity we hardly saw any of the other guests as the hotel has a really laid back way of being run and is very spacious in large grounds. The rooms are large , well appointed and comfortable, each having their own individual theme, related to the world of the arts.
Fresh fruit is brought to your room every day and staff go to GREAT lengths to meet your every need. The food in the restaurant was superb and always freshly prepared - as our waitress, Sylvia said " the Orange juice was squeezed with love from them to us " The only down side, and this is very personal, is that what is called the beach is actually several large flat rocks with loungers and a step ladder into the sea. There is only a plunge pool not a proper one, although we understand there are plans to install one.
That said we have to say a HUGE thank you to Ferdinando, ( the manager), Pasquale, Antonio, Guiseppe,Sylvia, Valentina, Marco, Giovanni, Giancarlo, and all the rest of the wonderful staff whose names we don't know, for making our break from the manic world we live in like a second honeymoon!! It was Wonderful and we defy anyone to come here and not enjoy themselves at arguably one of the best hotels we've ever stayed in.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Villa TreVille provides a unique, boutique hotel experience within a historic, oceanfront estate of about two hectares (five acres) in one of the most fascinating and exclusive places in the world: Positano on Italy's storied Amalfi Coast. This private paradise has an accommodation complex of four independent houses: Villa Bianca, Villa Rosa, Villa Azzurra and Villa Tre Pini.The villas contain a total of 15 guest suites, two with private gardens. Each suite is named after a special guest who has left his or her mark in the annals of the estate and on the arts world, their achievements honoured and recalled in part through the furnishings and art objects, with atmospheres further enhanced by the particular spaces and settings and uses of light and colour. Guests have exclusive access to the seaside sundecks and the dock for the estate's private motor launch through elevators and stone stairways cut into the landscaped, rocky promontory.The villas and amenities are artfully in harmony with the cliffside gardens and pathways that invite exploratory strolls between pergolas laden with vines and cascades of bougainvillea, where every turn can reveal touches of traditional craftsmanship and creative imagination.There are the original Vietri antique ceramics, or exacting reproductions, and extensive handiworks of local artisans such as the hand-painted plates produced exclusively for Villa TreVille by Rosalinda di Sorrento or the glasses made for the house by Venini, the historic Venetian manufacturer of glassware in Murano.The refurbishment of the entire property initially was under the artistic direction of Franco Zeffirelli, the opera and movie maestro who lived on the estate for 35 years. The work subsequently was continued with meticulous attention to essential details by the former proprietor, Giovanni Russo, who was advised by architect Fausta Gaetani, a friend of Mr. Zeffirelli's and a frequent guest at Villa TreVille. ... more less
