Hotel Villa Franca has incredible views over the Mediterranean. This luxury hotel was founded in the traditional fishing village Positano in the early 1940s by Giuseppe Rosso. It continues the tradition of holidaying here begun by two Roman emperors, Augustus and Tiberius, about two thousand years ago.
Giuseppe’s children, Mario and Franca, had Hotel Villa Franca refurbished in Mediterranean and Persian styles, but with contemporary art and design. Mario and Franca’s aim is to use these local styles to make guests feel as welcome in their hotel as they would feel in their local home.
The pool, Gold Sky Terrace champagne bar and grill, and O’ro Sky Terrace and cocktail bar are great places to relax and enjoy the view. A multi-Michelin star chef ensures that the Li Galli Restaurant offers the best contemporary food blended with Campanian tradition. You can always head to the hotel’s gym tomorrow.
Hotel Villa Franca offers guided trips of Mount Vesuvius and Pompeii along with a range of other experiences. But if you want to roam by yourself, the concierges are a great source of local knowledge. They can offer advice on renting a yacht or travelling by land down the Amalfi coast and beyond.
