About The Experience
This Amalfi Coast apartment near Positano, Italy, certainly surpasses the humble description of "apartment." With its own sea view terrace with room for "al fresco" dining, as well as a warm, comfortable interior, you will become a part of Italy both indoors and out. And don't forget the wonderful sights and activities awaiting in the area surrounding this Amalfi Coast vacation accommodation!
Location Description

The villa in the Fornillo area sits above Positano, along the via Pasitea, the beautiful road that winds through the town. Walk about 350 steps down a winding path, and you will be at the beach. Or walk up, and at the top of the hill is a little shopping area of Positano. Shops, restaurants, and grocery stores are within easy walking distance. It takes only about 20 minutes to walk into the center of town. The village of Positano is located in one of the most beautiful valleys of the Amalfi Coast, and the valley opens up to an equally magnificent stretch of coastline. At the center of the pedestrian maze of cobblestone alleys and steps, you can see the traditional brightly colored dome of Santa Maria Assunta, the main church of Positano. As well as completing the picturesque view of this Southern Italian town, the church is also a very important part of daily life for many local inhabitants. Even though Positano is such a beautiful town, you will want to venture further, into the surrounding areas of Ravello, Sorrento, and Amalfi. You can take a bus, taxi, or ferry to reach the other towns along the coast. Blue SITA busses cost about 1-2 euros, depending on destination. Stops are marked with a blue and white SITA sign. The small internal bus (orange mini-bus) of Positano is marked by a brown FERMATA sign.

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.

Air Conditioning is available in the bedrooms only.

Overall:
We had a wonderful time.
Enjoyed Most:
Positano is quite beautiful.
Surrounding Area:
The views, the proximity to other towns.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Positano was within walking distance. The house would probably not be good for small children or the elderly. There are many steps to climb to get from the villa to town. Being in decent physical shape is helpful.
Tips or Restaurants:
We took a cooking class at Bocca del Bocci restaurant at the beach in Positano. Although expensive - 100 Euros per person - it was a lot of fun. Bring comfortable walking shoes.
Directions:
We used a GPS which was very helpful in getting to surrounding towns and to and from Rome.

Overall:
Wonderful--we had a great time.
Enjoyed Most:
The view. It was nice to have AC in the bedrooms. The maid service was also excellent.
Enjoyed Least:
Wireless Internet access was inconsistent.
Surrounding Area:
Close to colorful and inviting restaurants with good food, and away from the major crush of tourists. We enjoyed all the amenities of Positano, including beaches and restaurants. The local smaller beach just below the villa was very nice and scenic.
Tips or Restaurants:
The villa was very well equipped so no need to bring anything special. Remember to bring a comfortable large bag for carting things up and down the steps, to and from the beach and grocery store, comfortable walking shoes and 'water shoes' to use at the beach to protect feet from rocks. Renting a scooter for the week is a logical investment for getting around. The bus service was excellent not only within Positano, but also for getting to other towns such as Ravello; renting a scooter or car is not necessary, but having a scooter for within town would be more convenient. The roads are winding and narrow, but I think the dangers are exaggerated. However, a car is more a bother and expense than what it is worth.
