Torre di Positano was
once an ancient watch tower and dates from the year 1280. Today, it forms
part of an exquisite group of five delightful apartments of stylishly
understated grace and beauty. The walls are two metres thick in places and
the whole complex is set in a hectare and a half of fragrant gardens and
terraces with unparalleled views out over Positano and the gulf.
There is a swimming
pool and 200 private stone steps lead down to a very pretty beach.
Positano has been home to intellectuals, artists and the international
elite who have wandered up and down the picturesque labyrinth of stone
steps and pastel-coloured houses for centuries.
The town today offers
sophisticated shopping, charming restaurants, breathtaking views, several
glamorous beaches and lemons in every shape and form! Meandering through
the arches and passageways, you'll find local shoemakers who will make you
a pair of customized sandals and the majolica tiled dome of the Collegiate
Church of Santa Assunta can be seen from almost every corner of the town.
Just off the shore of Positano are three tiny islands, Li Galli or as some
people call them, Le Sireneuse. Legend has it that they were once
inhabited by Parthenope and other enticing sirens who seduced passing
sailors with their song. The world famous ballet dancer, Rudolf Nureyev
purchased the islands and spent the last years of his life here.
