This beautifully maintained historic estate, perfect for groups of friends or family, resides in the heart of Positano.
There are so few properties in Positano suitable for larger groups - Villa Fornillo can be a perfect solution! The estate consists of four independent properties: Villa Donatello, Casa Lorenzo, Casa Stefania and Il Rifugio. When combining these four vacation homes, a group as large as 18 guests can enjoy spacious public and private areas. Villa Fornillo is tastefully decorated with antiques that reflect the beauty of this seaside town.
Two living rooms and a dining room, which seats eight, each have a working fireplace. Each room has direct access to the terraces which are suitable for lounging or dining. This level also has an excellent kitchen and a bath with shower only. There is also a pantry with full-size refrigerator, and dinnerware to accommodate large dinner parties.
The second floor has a handsome library with family memorabilia and satellite TV. There are three double bedrooms, all with good-quality mattresses and reading lamps. each bedroom can be configured as twins or kings. Screens have been provided for the double doors. All rooms have direct access to the terraces. There are two baths on this level, one with shower only, the other with shower and tub.

I just arrived back in NY from Rome and wanted to send you an email of thanks for the lovely birthday cake you and Lori arranged. I was very touched, thank you.
I also wanted to tell you that my friends and I had a wonderful week in the villas. I am sure you have heard this over and over and over again, but it was heaven on earth. Roseanna and Teresa and the rest of the staff are wonderful they made us two beautiful, memorable dinners believe me when I say I was traveling with a very discerning crowd (they are my friends and I know them very well!) and without exception, each and every person fell in love with the ladies and their delicious food. I will be back.
Thanks again, James.
