La Fortezza

San Michele, Veneto


Certain places give you the impression of living outside of time, far from the trivialities of everyday life. You share in their magic during your stay, but they leave you with a sense of eternity. This villa, a veritable balcony overlooking the Mediterranean, is situated in a dreamlike setting on the Amalfi Coast. Perched above Positano, in the picturesque village of Furore, it benefits from a magnificent, sweeping view of the Tyrrhenian Sea.

The beauty of the site may be eternal but the villa itself is a veritable journey through time.

An ancient fortress dating back to the 16th century, it was meticulously and tastefully renovated to provide it with all modern conveniences, while remaining true to its original spirit.

Suspended between the sky and the sea, its gardens are a Mediterranean paradise with olive trees and century-old pine trees that offer you their welcoming shade among the flowers and aromatic plants. Terraces and an outdoor space with garden furniture give you the opportunity to live right in the heart of this abundance of greenery. Dive into the 3x6 meter overflowing swimming pool as if you were diving into the horizon and enjoy lunch facing the coast under the canvas awnings of the summer kitchen.

The interior was renovated with particular attention to details and has period furniture, with unique pieces, which add to the friendly, authentic and welcoming atmosphere of the house. Terra-cotta tile floors, rich colors and draperies, vaulted stone ceilings: in short, a villa with loads of charm.

Furore is a hillside village perched 600 meters above sea level that seems to plunge right down into the sea. The town has no central square per se, but is made up of houses that are either spaced apart or squeezed tightly one against the other, because of their terraced structures. Furore prides itself on having the only Italian fjord. This “fjord” has several distinctive features, including that of housing an old fishing village and a beach.

If you’re a hiking enthusiast, you can head out on the “Sentiero degli Dei” that skirts the steep mountainside and overlooks the sea.

The closest beach is the one at Conca dei Marini, 6 kilometers away.

You can also visit the region’s must-sees. Amalfi, a 20-minute drive away, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site for its outstanding natural beauty invites you to wander through the maze of its medieval streets, a veritable melting pot of Mediterranean cultures.

Naples, Sorrento, Pompeii, Ravello…you’ll have to come back to explore all there is to see! The Naples airport is 60 km from the house.
