This magnificent property stands, with its unique burgundy color, on a hillside above Positano’s bay.

It was born as a monastery and starting from the 18th century it was enriched by particular and precious objects coming from the middle-east and other countries of the world, given that Positano was situated along the main routes of spices, silk goods and products imported in the Old Continent. The merchants passing through here, not only left works of art, but also a mix of culture and traditions of ancient populations that is visible in the décor of this historic villa.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, Positano became gradually the shelter of many artists and one of these Edward Ghillausen, a Bauhaus member (the artistic and philosophic German movement) established in this villa together with his wife, where they lived until the year 2000, leaving a further hint of culture, also considering that their usual visitors were artists or literary men themselves.

For all these reasons you will breath art and culture everywhere in this building, which make it even more fascinating.

Guests have the option of reaching Palazzo Santa Croce via a convenient public elevator directly from the Amalfi Drive.

Operating from 8:00am to 24:00, this elevator provides a swift means of transportation, allowing guests to reach the doors of the Palace from Amalfi Drive in a few minutes.
As the elevator is not managed by the villa management; any inconvenience cannot be related to them.

While the scenic 10-minute walk (including 190 steps) remains an option for those who prefer it, the availability of this new elevator offers a more expedient and efficient way of access.

From the main entrance you have access to the terrace where you can admire the breathtaking view of Positano and of the sea.

The terrace is furnished with ancient tiles featuring sacred scenes, with terracotta vases of different dimensions and comfortable sofas. The terrace is connected by three entrances, to the kitchen, the dining room, the lounge room and the staircase.

The kitchen is composed by a mix where technology melts with antiquity, fitted with majolica and marbles, the bread and pizza oven and the big baroque pantry.

The dining and relaxation area consists of two rooms and it is furnished with an antique wood table and monumental chairs, comfortable sofas, a library with a collection of antique books and paintings.

The first one features a console with mirror, two columns on the sides of the bed and numerous antique paintings. It has two balconies and a marvelous terrace with view on Positano’s beach.

The style of this room is in harmony with the rest of the structure, with decorated ceilings and bathrooms with antique tiles. It has a terrace with sea view and on the main Church. A corner with sofas and armchairs offers the guests a moment of relax observing the beautiful Positano.
