Touring the sensory experiences of a state that refuses to be neatly categorized.
There's no shortage of villas to rent in Italy, but there are some that make more of a splash than others. The luxurious Anastasia Villa on the Amalfi Coast does just that as the five-bedroom rental has a hot pink exterior.
The unique villa, which is offered by Italy accommodation specialists Italian Breaks, was once a small monastery in the 1700s. It has since transformed into a luxury property that has social-media-worthy hot pink outer walls and an equally lavish interior. Over the years, elegant, antique furniture, painted ceilings, and lacquered doors were added, making the entire space feel like a lived-in museum.
More modern amenities include a floor dedicated to spa facilities on the lower floor. There you’ll find an indoor heated pool and a jacuzzi with a seating area so you can snack on fresh locally sourced fruit while taking a dip in their private oasis.
The Calidarium and Frididarium rooms, traditionally hot and cold roman baths, have been replaced by a sauna and steam room with space for two showers and a massage table. From here, guests can access a terrace with their solarium to get that perfect holiday tan or take a dip in the outdoor jacuzzi.
Elsewhere there are five bedrooms, including two lavish suites, as well as a kitchen with bread and pizza oven and two-room dining room. And balconies overlooking Positano’s Bay and the fragrant garden filled with lemon trees are strewn about the property. Honestly, if the villa weren’t hot pink, the incredible views from the cliffside location would be the highlight.
For those worried about leaving their fur baby at home, the villa even allows pets on request, so don’t worry about getting a pet sitter. Plus, cleaning services and private chefs are available upon request.
Villa Anastasia costs from £13,050 ($17,116) for seven nights and sleeps up to 10 people. If you split it evenly, that’s only $245 per person per night. So, when are you booking a trip?
