Torre Porta is an XIII century cylindrical tower from Medieval times perched directly above the main beach of Positano and boasts magnificent views overlooking the sea and town of Positano.
It has a large circular master bedroom in the form of a junior suite with vaulted ceilings and canopied king size bed ( 160 x 195 cm) with mini bar and hot plate. Descend a short flight of stairs into a cool & spacious bathroom with shower . Or ascend an outside staircase to enjoy the breathtaking view from the “star gazers” terrace at the top of the tower. The surrounding terraces of the tower are a perfect private solarium and dining area for lunch or evening meals which can be prepared in the full working kitchen in the tower’s adjoining annex which also has a comfortable sofa bed for two children or one adult and en-suite bathroom with shower. The annex is fully air conditioned while the tower does not require it with its thick medieval walls. A dip pool has recently been beautifully placed on the sea side of the tower which is available to guests of the tower and the adjoining villette Colomba & Colombina also owned by the same proprietor. Naturally it has steps directly down to a delightful small and semi private beach.
This property has telephone, satellite TV, CD player, High Speed Internet Access and built in safe.
