Garden Level – Common space with living areas and kitchen:

A staircase leads to the principal entrance of the garden level, while the property can also be accessed from a garden full of bougainvillea, with almond, olive, lemon and mandarin trees which the property staff uses to make natural juices and homemade marmalades that you will enjoy for breakfast. The expansive main terrace runs the length of the villa and is set with both dining and living areas, seating 16 at each, under the lovely pergola.  Panoramic views of Positano looking west towards Capri abound.  The terrace boats huge antique urns, once used for oil, that are now filled with flowers and plants. Double doors open from the terrace to the dining/kitchen area and the main living room.  There is also an adjacent terrace with an infinity-edge pool with sun beds and an outdoor shower.  As the outdoor shower boasts hot water too, guests can bathe on the terrace for convenience after enjoying the pool.  A double-sized, vaulted dining area that opens to the kitchen enjoys antique wood dining tables that seats up to 16 people for family-style dining with comfortable upholstered chairs.  This entire area opens out to the terrace as well. The large, partially open kitchen is equipped with a gas stove, double ovens, a microwave, a large refrigerator/freezer, double sinks, and lots of professional appliances.  There is a wood oven for making pizza, cooking fish & meats, or baking fresh bread.
