Overview

Located in Praiano, the property was owned by a noble Neapolitan Princess, who built the first structure of the villa at the beginning of the 1900’s. After being sold to a Chilean consulate, it then changed hands to a pair of famous designers, who owned the property from the 1980’s until recently. It has since welcomed the elite as well as celebrities such as Racquel Welch, Donna Karan, Julia Roberts, and Michael Keaton, to name a few.
The Villa sits on the coastline just a 2 minute walk from town. The property can also be reached by sea through a private entrance and up a flight of 202 steps that take one from the beach to the villa’s pool deck.
