Villa Tre Ville, Positano – Italy
From £1862 or $2417 per night (Booking.com)
Get the celebrity treatment at The Villa Tre Ville, which looks straight out of a James Bond movie. This Villa complex is sat on a cliff on Italy’s Amalfi Coast and perhaps boasts the best luxury that Italy has to offer.
The Villa Tre Ville offers a reclusive and tranquil experience, with private balconies, plunge pools, and secluded gardens. It’s the former home of celebrated opera and film director, Franco Zeffirelli. The hotel’s interiors offer little insights into his creative mind and design flair. Because it was built as a home there really is a sense of homeliness here and the staff emphasise on making sure guests feel completely comfortable.
A hidden elevator shaft can take you down to a private seaside sundeck, and the restaurant serves vegetables from the hotel gardens and fish from the sea beside it. The Biana Bar is reserved exclusively for guests – this Morrocan inspired terrace is covered in vines and allows guests to enjoy a cocktail overlooking the best of the Amalfi coast, all in complete privacy. Another stunning space available to guests is the Club Lounge, where a spread of fresh foods is available all day. Here, everywhere you look is like a painting in an art gallery.
