Completely renovated and restored luxury apartment in upper Positano. YPI CER
YPI CER is uniquely beautiful, completely renovated, and restored luxury apartment located in a quiet, residential area in the upper part of Positano, which offers wonderful, panoramic views over the entire town and the Li Galli islands. There are approximately 90 steps that lead from the main coastal road up to the entrance of the property, although it is possible for a taxi to arrive under the building, hence, cutting out the majority of the steps. From the villa, guests can reach the centre of town, on foot, in 10 minutes and the beach in 15 minutes.
This beautiful, historic building was completely restored, during which original frescoes, dating back to 1715, were discovered. The property has been very carefully renovated by master craftsmen, whose patient work has restored it to its ancient splendor.
This luxury apartment boasts two bedrooms and two bathrooms, with original hand made, ceramic tile floors from Pompei, marble bathtubs, and the latest in high tech amenities. The magnificent 18th century doors, and the frescoes showing country scenes of the time seem to take us back through the ages. All of the modern comforts have been included and discreetly placed so as not to disturb the regal atmosphere. From the precious tiles in original decorated ceramic from the 1700s with flowery patterns and religious subjects, to the old neoclassical bathtub made from a single marble block, to the old fireplace, everything blends in perfectly. Immediately from the apartments entrance through a large set of wooden double doors into the living room offering 15 foot high ceilings and an open-air format that guarantees lots of air, cool breezes, and natural sunlight.
The living room, with its hand made, terracotta ceramic tile floors, boasts a Cleopatra style daybed and day chair and a 45 inch flat screen high definition TV (some international channels included in the cable package). The open-air format allows the living room to flow, from one side, to the beautifully styled external terrace, to a master bedroom straight ahead, or to the large kitchen and dining room, to its left.
