About The Experience
Sit back and relax beneath the bougainvillea and vine-covered terrace while taking in the stunning coastal views this villa has to offer. Nestled in Positano’s steep cliffs, this gorgeous retreat is perfect for a few friends looking to experience the allure of one of the coasts’ most charming outposts. There are beautiful flowering plants and citrus trees along the exterior and terrace and guests also have access to a small vegetable garden. From the villa you also have access via 150 steps (exercise!) to Fornillo beach.
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 apartment 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.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
An absolutely amazing experience, with a view to absolutely die for! Going to bed at night with the windows open to a view of the sea, sparkling lights of Positano, and boats on the water. Blissfully quiet and peaceful, with I do honestly believe the best view in all of Positano. Absolutely outstanding property.
Enjoyed Most:
The layout of the villa was fabulous, but the terrace was the best. And access to a private garden with lemon trees, tomatoes, basil, rosemary, lettuces, fava beans, zucchini, peas and wild fennel made this truly special. Alphonso our gardener would arrive every morning and take me to the garden and he would ask what I would like. Warm baby zucchinis with the flower blossoms still attached is the stuff dreams are made of.
Enjoyed Least:
Absolutely nothing negative to say about this property.
Surrounding Area:
Fornillo beach and private stairs down to it. All of Positano was a dream, and we explored a good deal of the Amalfi Coast.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Positano. Stairs down to town and about a 5 minute walk.
Tips or Restaurants:
If you like to cook, this is the villa for you. Lots of fabulous restaurants in Positano, but it was a dream to cook here and enjoy the terrace.
Directions:
The directions were perfect.
Check In Out:
Totally fabulous.

Overall:
Wonderful.
Enjoyed Most:
Location and feeling like we were at home. Also the garden. Lots of fresh fruit and vegetables for us to use.
Enjoyed Least:
To be picky... That all the bedrooms are connected.
Surrounding Area:
Closeness to town and beach and grocery store. View.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Positano. Yes walking distance. 150 steps down stairs to get to it. Walking up through town and walking on the road back to the villa felt easier then going back up the stairs. Sounds like a lot but other tourist we met had many more stairs then we did.
Tips or Restaurants:
Enjoy the villa. The veggie garden was amazing. The gardener would pick fresh lettuce or beans etc for us to use. We would go to explore town mid morning, eat lunch there and on the way home pick up fresh fish or chicken and cook at the villa. Ate outside. Wonderful. Bring beach shoes to swim in. The beach is all stones and they get hot, walking on then can be tricky.
Directions:
We had a driver take us from Naples train station to Positano. He spoke to the key holder of the villa and she gave him great directions to find the villa. Google Maps was a bit of a pain in Positano. Only one road that goes through town and lots of walking paths. Google would choose the road at times instead of giving the quicker way by foot path.
Check In Out:
Check in and out was great. Do get a porter to help with your luggage. 75 steps down to the front door of the villa from the road.

Overall:
Outstanding! The location was perfect - not too far from the shops, but enough to keep a private, quiet setting. Besides, who needs to get caught up in the masses with that view?!
Enjoyed Most:
THE TERRACE! The view is spectacular and setting is comfortable and so picturesque. We enjoyed happy hours outside before heading to dinner. And each morning I loved waking up the sounds of the waves. The location is also pretty amazing - I didn't mind the steps (in fact, not so bad when you consider all the pasta consumption!)
Enjoyed Least:
The shared/open bathroom. It's a little awkward for those in the two bedrooms who share it (we were a party of three couples) but not the end of the world
Surrounding Area:
The natural beauty and sights! We had a car during our stay and enjoyed driving to neighboring towns (Amalfi, Ravello) as well as a wonderful chartered boat ride to Capri, arranged through RentVillas.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The central part of Positano is a short walk downhill (stairs) - less than 5 minutes. Very easy and not a bad workout! Of course the return was uphill (stairs) but the walk is pleasant and relaxed (unless you are walking along the narrow streets - where you have to keep an eye out for cars whizzing by).
Tips or Restaurants:
Definitely bring soaps and shampoos, etc. The villa came stocked with beach towels. I also brought bug spray (but we didn't need it in May) and of course sunblock. We did a lot of grocery shopping at the nearby shops and I was impressed by the offerings and prices! We enjoyed a few meals at home. As far as restaurants our favorite was La Tagliata! We walked toward it after coming off the walk of the gods (Il Sentiero degli Dei) and it was incredible - such a feast!
Directions:
We had a pretty easy time reaching the parking lot in our rental car and then Carmela met us there and it was a short walk to the villa with the luggage (downhill). I read the reviews warning of the stairs so we packed accordingly! It was definitely a workout - but not terrible. The other members of our party came in a transfer from Naples so they had no trouble arriving.
Check In Out:
The check in out process was super easy and Carmela was so helpful!
