CASA ROCCHETTA - POSITANO
Casa Rocchetta is a charming 18th century family home with beautiful sea views and just a short distance from the popular Fornillo beach.
The entrance door hides a terrace with a lemon grove which runs along the ground floor rooms.
One level up is a large paved terrace with classical style columns supporting mature, vibrant bougainvillea and wisteria pergola. Large terracotta pots hold jasmine, palms and colourful geraniums, with views of Positano and the village of Fornillo.
The well maintained interiors with high vaulted ceilings and terracotta tiles, are furnished with period pieces. Many original paintings and portraits, prints and ceramics give the house a very intimate feeling and an old world atmosphere. Built on three levels with a mezzanine in between, Casa Rocchetta enjoys double access: from the typical street stairway and internally from a private garage, a real rarity in Positano.
