“Pure magic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2014

We stayed here for 5 days and did not want to leave. This is truly a privileged property, with an excellent location just in the outskirts of Positano featuring the most gorgeous views of the town. Villa Tre Ville inspires peace and tranquility, while providing luxury in a very subtle way. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable, and ours had the most amazing views. The staff is incredibly friendly and attentive. The private beach is worth a million bucks. We feel blessed with the opportunity of having stayed here.

When planning our trip to the Amalfi Coast we had taken the recommendation of a friend and booked Villa Tre Ville. Not only was this a great choice, but upon arrival it exceeded all expectations. Upon arrival at the Front, we were introduced to an extremely friendly and accommodating staff (Antonio, Annalisa and others) while gazing at Positano through what appeared to be a live postcard. Our bags were not a concern as we were whisked away by Silvia and Ferdinando through the “tunnel” to your kitchen/restaurant (Club Lounge) followed by a wonderful dining room, terrace, and sitting areas. We were not really concerned about even seeing our rooms while the staff provided a glass of Prosecco to begin the stay. As we sipped our Prosecco and took in the beautiful views of Positano and coast, we were guided down to the Maria Callas and Tosca Suites. On the way, we passed several beautiful suites and then made a stop at the self-service bar (Salone Bianco). We enjoy more than a few evening cocktails and opportunities to take in the views on yet another terrace. We then made our way to the rooms and found out that not only do we have two wonderful rooms but the entire lower level. This included a private pool, three outdoor sitting areas, a private walkway to the rest of the gardens, beach access, fitness area, and second tunnel back to the lounge. If you are looking for a carefree, relaxing, comfortable stay on the Amalfi Coast, there is no other place to consider. This truly is your home away from home with a staff that will accommodate your every need.

Our morning breakfast started with a warm welcome of “Buongiorno” from Sylvia and a staff that is there for your every need. Whether we spent our day relaxing at the resort or exploring Positano, Ravello, Amalfi, or Capri when we returned home to Villa Tre Ville we were always greeted by a cheerful and attentive staff in Rosy and Giuseppe awaiting our return at the Club Lounge. Since there is no menu, you can simply listen to suggestions from Giuseppe or make a special request. The food was always exceptional whether it was the fresh seafood, pasta, vegetables picked from the gardens, or even just a mid-afternoon snack.

By the second day, the Villa Tre Villa staff is your family. They are there for you, asking about your day, and really getting to know what you like so that every need is attended to during your stay. This is truly a special place and while there are other options, you would never consider another after you experience the luxury, intimacy, relaxation of Villa Tre Ville.

Where to begin? We came here for our honeymoon. Simply put, I do not think I have ever stayed in a more perfect place / hotel. In fact 'hotel' is the wrong word. It is not like a hotel.... It's like a private house. We had plans to go and see Pompeii/Herculaneum/Ravello but the Villa is just too wonderful to leave. Not only does it have the finest views in Positano, It also has the best food. Seriously the best. We went to La Sponda at La Sireneuse... Don't bother. It was fine, but only fine. Treville knocks it for six. Service, Food, Wine.... the lot. The rooms are AMAZING.... each one with its own very special character and design. We stayed in Nijinsky and I could not recommend it higher. Most afternoons were spent down on the rocks sunbathing and swimming, with the odd trip into town on the boat. No finer way to enter and leave Positano than by boat.

I could go on and on. The staff are just brilliant... so friendly and attentive... In fact, like 'hotel' i think 'staff' is the wrong word... it just doesn't quite feel like that...and that's amazing .

Suffice to say that, like many people before me, I can safely say that Villa Tre Ville is one of the most wonderful places I have ever stayed in, and am ever likely to.

Thank you to all those who made this the most perfect honeymoon.

Room Tip: they are all great.

We absolutely loved it! The grounds are meticulous, the view spectacular, the staff outstanding, the food- incredible, the feeling ---defies description. The spiral marble bathroom stairway with hand painted tiles is just one of the many features that add to the elegance of this magnificently decorated and designed estate. Any angle from any vantage point of this property is breathtakingly beautiful.

Room Tip: Njinski Suite is perfecto.

Being a private Villa in the past, owned by different artists (i.e. Downes and the Italian film maker Zefferilli, who's been the last owner) and recently turned into a boutique hotel, Villa Treville gives you the unique chance to breath a unique atmosphere: relaxing and charming at the same time!

Of course there are all the facilities and services of a 5* luxury hotel, but at the same time the atmosphere is informal and all the guests feel like at home! We didn't realise we were living at a hotel. We felt like we were stayng at our friend's private villa! The staff is really great, always at disposal, but at the same time very discrete.

There are several areas of the hotel (terraceces, gardens, lounge bar and so on) in which any guest can find privacy (a sort of personal "secret garden") to experience special moments!
This is exclusivity! This is luxury!

The view from the property is amazing and the access to the private beach (platform) is also very easy. Close to the hotel there's also the public sandy beach of Arienzo, that can be reached by walking directly from the hotel!!!!

I reccomend a stay at Villa Treville to anyone (couple or family) is looking for a special experience in Positano and in general in Italy!!!

Room Tip: I really love the part called Villa Tre Pini. It's closer to the beach and offers more privacy!

Words cannot begin to describe what an amazing experience my friends and I had at the VIlla Tre Ville. From the minute we walked into the hotel until the minute we left everything was absolutely perfect. As we were checking in they had already upgraded us to the Bernstein Suite which is one of the nicest hotel rooms and balconies I have ever stayed in. After settling in we went for lunch where our table was already set. Their are no menus at this restaurant, the chef makes you anything you want with an emphasis on the local cuisine. The food was out of this world, from the pasta to the fish to the meat it was all perfect. It was amazing that after half a day every one knew our names. The staff is genuinely interested in how your day is going and if there is anything they can do to make it better. I was almost crying when it was time to leave, they treat you like family at the Villa Tre Ville. This is hands down the best, most personal hotel in the Amalfi Coast and I highly recommend this place to everyone!

So many wonderful things have already been said about Ville Tre Ville that it is hard to find original words to describe the estate. The Villa combines history and luxury in incomparable ways, and the staff makes you feel right at home. What an amazing place, and a transporting holiday.

In fact, the only suggestion I can think of is to provide thoughtful items for sale at the villa, so guests can bring something with them and take a piece of the experience home to treasure. Another idea would be to have a casual photographer to step-in and take photos for guests while they are enjoying the stunning estate.

I can't wait to come back!

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
