The Robb Report 100 Resorts: Europe: Villa Tre Ville

Villa Tre Ville, Positano, Italy

After purchasing Italian director Franco Zeffirelli’s estate in 2007, hotelier Giovanni Russo embarked on a restoration designed to honor the former owner. Villa Tre Ville—four buildings clinging to the cliffs between Positano town and Grand Hotel San Pietro—was a perfect match for Russo, who is known for his restorations on the Sorrento Peninsula. For the villa, he worked with architect Fausta Gaetani, a friend of Zeffirelli’s, to achieve a state-of-the-art tribute with 15 suites adorned with fanciful mosaics and the past owner’s collections of Caltagirone pottery and Syrian mother-of-pearl furniture. Guests can book an individual suite, one of the four villas as a whole, or the entire property to walk in the footsteps of Zefirelli—from the private jetty and striped loungers at the beach to the network of stone steps that winds through organic gardens up to this dramatic masterpiece on the cliff. (Suites from $1,600, villas from $27,800 per week, $39,725 for the entire estate) www.villatreville.it
