This delightful villa enjoys a very interesting layout, ideally situated high above the sea in a prestigious location on the steep mountain slopes on the edge of Positano.  It is located about ¾ km from the lively and charming center of Positano, where you can find all its excellent restaurants, elegant shops, delightful cafes, and sandy beaches.  Its private setting is very peaceful and some of Positano’s most exclusive neighbors are close by.  Its position offers enchanting views across the sweeping bay of Positano towards Punta Campanella and gives its guests a great opportunity to enjoy the Mediterranean lifestyle.  Villa Niside offers plenty of opportunity to relax and sunbath by its lovely private pool or 120 steps off the main entrance down to the public beach, if you decide to desire a dip in the Mediterranean.

Il Nido’s interiors are elegantly furnished and highly refined, enriched with interesting objects of art, antiques, and sculptures, all providing a warm, inviting ambiance exuding the character and personal taste of the owner. The spacious terrace, with its garden and pool area, offers you an amazing oasis of relaxation and fine living.

The property’s entrance leads onto a large, spectacular garden terrace, surrounded by lush bougainvillea and scented orange trees.  The terrace is beautifully ornamented with potted plants and flowers and decorated with statues and bronze sculptures.  It has a covered, outside dining area, furnished with a marble topped, iron dining table and 8 chairs.  Large umbrellas create shaded areas throughout the garden where needed.  A built-in bench lines the terrace while small coffee tables and iron chairs allow for cocktail space and extra seating. 

The beautifully designed pool (10 x 5 meters) is set in the garden.  The poolside patio area is furnished with comfortable lounge chairs and small glass tables while the opposite side of the pool boasts lush vegetation with flowers, orange, trees and Bougainvillea entirely covering the rocky slopes.  A small, covered patio area has a built-in bench and coffee table allowing you to enjoy the views extending out towards Positano the Li Galli islands, and the Mediterranean.
