Dorata Vacation Rental

Villa Dorata, a super-luxury private palazzo perched 94 steps above the glorious Mediterranean and the light of Positano.

Live like royalty in a villa decorated in high Baroque style—amidst lush, tasseled draperies; meticulously selected works of art; ornate chandeliers; exquisite frescoed ceilings; and vaulted alcoves. The exterior is an oasis of verdant gardens, fragrant citrus groves, and picturesque outdoor terraces with breathtaking panoramic ocean and village views.

The high Baroque architectural details evident throughout the villa are highlighted by rich jewel-tone color scheme, gilt-framed works of art, and romantic terraces. There are sumptuously soft sofas, crystal chandeliers, lavish draperies, inlaid ceilings, and exquisite alcoves that make a stay at villa Dorata a life-long memory. Outside, Eden-like gardens and surrounding groves make lounging and dining al fresco as privileged an experience as life within. Couple all this with a full staff just waiting to attend to your needs, including freshly squeezed juices from the lemons and oranges grown outside your bedroom windows, homemade marmalades and pastries, the finest wine cellar, and two traditional Italian pizza fornos!

Posted by in June 2017

Spectacular villa with stunning views. My family, girlfriend and I spent the week here and couldn't be happier. It was the first time my parents travelled abroad and still talk about the villa and Positano every day. I even got engaged while I was there :) For the 7 of us the size of the villa was perfect and quickly felt like home. The staff were phenomenal and felt like family.

Posted by in July 2016

Dorata was over the top both figuratively and literally. Our concierge, Chiara, was very helpful with all the nitty gritty details of our van rentals, day to day travel tips and being the go-to regional expert for any questions we may have had. Enzo, our chef, catered to our palates and we were never disappointed in the variety and quality of the meals he prepared. Anna, our housekeeper, was a gem when it came to keeping on top of our laundry and our rooms. What a 5 star team and always with a smile on their faces. They made it a truly memorable week.

Considered one of Europe's most beautiful coastlines, the Amalfi Coast is a must-see for jetsetters, honeymooners, or anyone looking for a bit of inspiration. Pastel-colored houses and winding staircases dot the rocky shoreline, and the scent of lemon groves and citrus flowers fills the air. Bike ride along winding hill paths, lounge on picturesque beaches, or simply enjoy the breathtaking view from your terrace perched over the sea.
