Hotel Heaven

Ahh....Positano...
So much to love about this romantic laid back Italian locale.  
It could quite possibly be heaven on earth...
especially if you are lucky enough to stay here:


Formerly the home of Franco Zeffirelli the villa has hosted Maria Callas, Leonard Bernstein, Elton John and Elizabeth Taylor and Sophia Loren among others....many of the villas are named after their famous guests. 

Franco Zeffirelli

Romeo and Juliet

The new owners made sure to keep it as Zeffirelli intended and it is full of great design ideas you could utilize in your own home....  

Not a bad view in sight!

Gorgeous garden pathway...

The view from a terrace at twilight....

Liberal use of tile in the kitchen....

Chevron tiled floor in the Bernstein Suite

This shower in the Bernstein Suite was formerly an oven!  Note gorgeous plaster details....

Beautiful in its simplicity the Tosca Suite features a gilded sunburst over the bed.....

Breathtaking chic-ness in white!

Another view....


Franco's own suite features Syrian inlaid furniture....



Another gorgeous patio....

Note how the mirror sits in front of the arched window....and the view from the shower!!

Love the fretwork detail on the walls....

This hotel is exquisite and you can expect to pay exquisite prices to stay there.  However the photos on the hotel's website are stunning if you lack the funds to reserve a room. 

Here is a link if you are curious:

A stay at this hotel is definitely on my bucket list....
