  • The arcadian, antique kitchen hides high end, modern appliances tucked in between the stone archways, marble sinks. and fireplace. The enormous wooden cabinet dates back to the Baroque period, and the two bread and pizza ovens are built directly into the thick stone walls decorated with antique majolica tiles.
  • The living and dining room is divided into two separate areas; a dining area with a Tuscan oak dining table encircled by a bookshelf, a Neapolitan Rococo mirror, and a collection of antique paintings, that include depictions of the life of Alexander the Great. A special feature of the living room is its enormous double fireplace with hearthside benches inside the first stone frame.
  • Downstairs, the Salus Per Aquam area has an indoor pool lined with traditional Amalfi Coast majolica tiles and includes massage jets on the walls and seat, a massage waterfall, and a swimming current.
  • The traditional calidarium and frigidarium from ancient Roman baths have been replaced by a sauna and Turkish bath. The treatment, massage and relaxation area, and direct access to an outdoor terrace with its sundeck and jacuzzi, complete the only private villa spa in Positano.
  • The two suites on the Upper Floor are decorated with carefully restored painted ceilings and frescoed walls. One is dedicated to Alfonso of Aragon and the 17th century decor centers around the ornate antique furniture and mirror, with paintings depicting the battle of Lepanto, the witch Circe and seascapes. The other suite is dedicated to Queen Isabella, wife of Alfonso. Its private altar, starry ceiling and paintings featuring sacred scenes, lend the room a spiritual air.
  • The attic floor with two double rooms tucked under thick wooden eaves are decorated in a soft, understated style. The villa’s grand staircase, with its colorful stucco decorations, statues and vases tucked into niches, and walls hung with antique works of art, is both a central element running through the villa and a de facto art gallery. This floor opens onto the gardens behind the palazzo.


The grounds include a garden paved with traditional volcanic stone from Vesuvius and flowerbeds planted with citrus, fig, and pomegranate trees.


Palazzo Santa Croce is located in an excellent position to enjoy the beauty of Positano and the services that the “pearl of the coast” offers. It's located near the center (reachable by foot in about 10 minutes) while at the same time, far from the tourist frenzy.

Access : 
You have the option of reaching Palazzo Santa Croce via a convenient elevator directly from the Amalfi State Road. 
Operating from 8:00am to 24:00, this elevator provides a swift means of transportation, allowing you to reach the doors of the Palace from Amalfi Drive in few minutes. 
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.
