About The Experience
This 18th century villa is nestled in the colorful cliffs of Positano. The villa’s charming authentic features remain intact, such as a wood-fired oven used in the past for bread baking. The villa is airy and light and offers guests a panoramic terrace overlooking the town, the Tower of Fornillo, and sea. The location allows for access to town by foot (it is steep!) where there are many restaurants, shops, and cafés. Guests can slip into the slow-paced leisure of coastal life along the Mediterranean.
Location Description

“Positano bites deep” John Steinbeck wrote, referring to the dream-like quality the town possesses. The charming pastel residences sit along narrow, winding roads on steep hillsides overlooking the Mediterranean. From the villa you are just a 10 minute walk from the center of town and 15 from the nearest beach. The beach Spiaggia Grande has been described as one of the most beautiful beaches along the coast but, for more peace and privacy, seek out Fornillo beach; accessed along a coastal path via Spiaggia Grande. If time permits, hire one of the town’s “sea taxis”; small boats which transport visitors to secluded bays only accessible by boat. Wander in to the many colorful boutiques or quaint cafés, and dine at one of the many restaurants.

Please Note: While the Amalfi Coast is beautiful and charming, it is also steep, with many uphill and downhill stairs and walkways. In general, it is an area that is not kind to those of us with knee or mobility issues. This should be considered before booking a property in this area.

Nearby Attractions: Visit nearby Sorrento, which is famous for its limoncello (an alcoholic aperitif) and inlaid wood – you can visit one of the workshops still in operation today to see this centuries-old craft in action. Visit Sorrento’s 10th century Basilica di San Antonio, which was built to honor the patron saint of navigators and still attracts sailors’ offerings to this day. The "Sorrento Summer of Music" is also held at the cloisters from July to September, and features international musicians performing alongside emerging talents. Amalfi is also nearby and dates back to the 6th century, with historical and medieval architecture throughout. The main sites include the Duomo, in Amalfi's center, the cathedral of Sant' Andrea, which dates back to the 11th century, and the Cloister of Paradise. There is also a museum dedicated to the works of Morelli and a museum where you can view artifacts of Amalfi's long and interesting history. During the summer months, there are daily ferries leaving from Positano to Capri, Sorrento, and Naples.

Exterior Description
(200 m2/2,152 ft2)

(45 Steps) Entrance to the beautiful 18th century villa is accessed through a gate, via a narrow alley and staircase. At the entrance, below the terrace, there is a bas-relief of a Pistrice—a mythical sea creature. The outdoor space includes a sizable, secluded garden outfitted with flagstones—interlaced with grass—with plenty of outdoor seating. On the first floor there is a panoramic terrace overlooking the sea, with a vine-covered pergola and alfresco dining area.

Interior Description
(300 m2/3,229 ft2)

Ground Floor: The villa is furnished with many vintage pieces and décor. Through the entrance you will find the authentic wood-fire oven—it can only be used by a professional pizza maker, but pizza parties can be arranged. From this area you have access to a study and storage area. There is also a comfortable living room and dining room that lead out to the garden area.

First Floor: (10 Steps) In this area you will find the fully equipped kitchen—with rustic décor touches—which has direct access to the panoramic terrace and alfresco dining area. There is also a cozy single bedroom with 80cm narrow twin bed and an en-suite bathroom with shower.

Second Floor: (10 Steps) On this floor you will find additional bedrooms. There is a double bedroom with a 160cm queen-sized bed and an en-suite bathroom with a bathtub and shower. The next two bedrooms are also doubles with 160cm queen-sized beds. These rooms share a bathroom with a shower. The final double bedroom on this floor also had a 160cm queen-sized bed with a large bathroom with bathtub and separate shower (not en-suite). Each of these rooms has direct terrace access.

This portion of the villa is adjacent to the entrance gate—with its own private entrance—and contains the final double bedroom with 160cm queen-sized bed and has an en-suite bathroom with shower.

Customer Reviews

Exceeded our expectations.
Enjoyed Most:
Location close to everything.
Enjoyed Least:
The mattresses were firm.
Surrounding Area:
Sightseeing, beach, food, shopping relaxing at the villa.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Positano. Down the stairs was a restaurant. Grocery, wine sho and cheese shop all just steps away.
Tips or Restaurants:
Renters should know they have to provide their own toiletries, soap, dish detergent, paper towels, toilet paper. Worth it to have these things delivered ahead.
Directions were given when we got close by the property manager.

Fantastic week in heavenly Positano.
Enjoyed Most:
It was very spread out and comfortable for my group of 11.
Enjoyed Least:
The stairs were a challenge for my 75 yr old mom.
Surrounding Area:
Having a home base to enjoy all that area has was wonderful. We loved going to Capri on the boat we chartered for the day. Also, we took a cooking class and that was a treat.
Tips or Restaurants:
Ate at our favorites - Casa e Bottega, Chez Black, Da Vincenzo, Da Gabrisa. All very good.

Our overall experience at Villa Cometa was excellent! The views are lovely, especially on the second level where the bedrooms are. There is great outdoor space for soaking up the sun, eating, and enjoying the weather and plenty of room for our toddler to stretch her legs. Beautiful flowers as well.
Enjoyed Most:
The bedrooms are great, very roomy with lovely views. And the outdoor space is ample for relaxing and enjoying the weather.
Enjoyed Least:
There is no powder room on the main level of the house. Our babysitter used the small bedroom on the main level with a bathroom, so we didn't feel comfortable using her bathroom which meant we had to go upstairs each time. Also, the steps up to the villa can be challenging after a long climb up from town/beach.
Surrounding Area:
We enjoyed the spectacular views, the Island of Capri and the Blue Grotto, the beach in Positano, the food and wonderful restaurants in town, the GELATO was terrific, the French bakery at the beach. It was fun renting a boat for a day and cruising up the shoreline.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Positano is the town which was within walking distance of Villa Cometa. Of course, you need to have strong legs and good knees to navigate all of the steps up and down to/from town.
Tips or Restaurants:
We liked having the Villa stocked with cheese, wine, snacks breakfast items before our arrival. This made is easy for us to relax after we unpacked. We enjoyed La Tres Sorrel restaurant at the beach and a coffee/breakfast place at the pier for French pastries and coffee.
Best landmark to find the property is the hotel next door (Hotel Gabrisa?). That's what we used to direct our taxi with no problem. We were driven from Naples to Positano and back via a car service.
Check In Out:
Paula was excellent and we had a smooth transition in and out. We had a Pizza Party on our last night at the Villa. The chef was outstanding and he went all out to provide a fabulous evening and TONS of delicious pizza for us. At 550 Euros it was steep, but we all felt that given the amount of the effort and wonderful pizza, it was well-worth it.
