Ultimate luxury living; this stunning air-conditioned villa sits on a cliffside along Amalfi’s most exclusive stretch of coast, offering unsurpassed views over Positano and the Mediterranean sea to Island of Capri, direct access to the beach and all the comforts and services of a boutique hotel.

This has been home to acclaimed film director Franco Zeffirelli for over three decades. Il Maestro enjoys a privileged setting; hidden among the foliage of palm trees, oleanders and bougainvillea cascading over the terraces. A lavish and exotic combination of Vietri hand-painted tiles, glass from Murano, Carrara marble and Syrian mother-of-pearl mosaics adorn this splendid property. The villa is part of an exclusive, private gated domain, an oasis created over eight levels of terraced grounds, dotted with tall shady plants and scented flowers. Enjoy the intimacy of your own private sun terrace and plunge pool, or choose the more sociable communal areas shared only with other guests of this small estate, all with stunning sea views. The restaurant, the lounge bar and the outdoor fitness centre with round Jacuzzi pool complete this idyllic setting.

Il Maestro perfectly combines the privacy of a stay in a private villa with the service of a boutique hotel, specifically designed to meet your requirements. For example, you can enjoy unlimited soft and alcoholic drinks throughout the day, as well as snacks, cakes and a two-course meal. You can take the shuttle boat to Positano, enjoy the day wandering up and down the narrow lanes as you browse the distinctive whitewashed shops covered in bougainvillea and come back whenever it suits you. Boat tours to Amalfi, Sorrento, Ravello, Capri can also be arranged on request as part of the concierge service offered at this property.
