Profile

Villa Positano is at 10 minutes walking from the center of the town allowing for easy connections to all the highlights of the Amalfi coast such as Ravello, Sorrento and Amalfi. Other popular destinations such as Naples, Pompei and Paestum are also easily reachable by private boat, by ferry, or by car. The Amalfi Coast is the stretch of Italian coastline that runs between Naples and Salerno. The area is renowned for its beauty, its hospitality, its traditional cuisine, and its charm. The most famous centers of the Amalfi Coast are above all Amalfi, Ravello, and Positano. Each one of these towns has its own unique sites, traditions, and special recipes. Amalfi, is the very heart of the Amalfi Coast, used to be the city where the dukes of 'Malfi managed politics and economics from the time of the early Renaissance. Positano is the most chic location on the coast in last 60 years.

Area Information 
A beautiful town residing alongside Italy's famous Amalfi Coast, many tourists consider Positano to be one of the most picturesque of all Italy's coastal resorts. That said, tourists visiting Positano should bear in mind that this is a town with steep streets and more than its fair share of stairways, with many colourful pastel houses crammed on the hillside next to the beachfront, competing with each other for the best sea view.

When you first arrive in Positano, do consider paying the tourist information office a visit. Located on the Via del Saracino, next to the Via dei Mulini and the central Piazza Flavio Gioia, this tourist information outlet is conveniently close to one of the town's most famous sights, the Chiesa di Santa Maria Assunta. The town is undeniably a very special, unique and 'real' part of Campania, boasting dramatic cliff-hugging roads, popular beachfronts and some of the very best views that you are ever likely to experience. Apart from the beaches and water sports, other tourist attractions include cruises along the Amalfi Coast, the very beautiful Bay of Salerno, and a choice of walking trails, with a very appealing cliff side path connecting the Spiaggia Grande and Spiaggia del Fornillo beaches. Famed for its majolica tile-clad dome and tall stone pillars, the Chiesa di Santa Maria Assunta is amongst the oldest landmarks in Positano, dating back as far as the 10th century. Even older and created by nature, the sea cavern known as the Emerald Grotto (Grotta dello Smeraldo) is always very popular with tourists and holiday makers, and guided tours through the illuminated chambers take place on boats. Do not miss a visit to the enchanting island of Capri reached daily by local boats ......

Villa Positano is an incredible 6 bedrooms property of approx. 450 sqm overlooking the sea coast. The gate of the property will introduce you on the parking (suitable for 2 cars) unusual for Positano. Coming down you'll enter into a little paradise of shining flowers, yellow lemon trees and gorgeous views of the sea. The property is based on many levels filled by small terraced gardens, nice spots, plants and several terraces. After about 50steps you'll enter into a lounge area where you can enjoy a 180°view of the Coast. The furnishings are in modern style and are of excellent quality.

The main access is from the third level, where are 3 double bedrooms each with own bathroom with shower, 2 of them have access onto a panoramic terrace.

On the second level (20 steps lower) you have the main terrace, equipped with elegant lounges and armchairs designed by Philip Stark. Here is a delight to read a book, have a drink or enjoy a typical dinner in front of the bay of Positano. The large terrace give access on a living-room area, furnished with Mediterranean and really modern style furniture and light linen tapestries made of natural fabric, large windows from where you can enjoy a magnificent scenario. On the same floor there are: a spacious living-room with a modern and well equipped kitchen designed by Miele with a classic pizza oven and a modern induction oven, a dining room, 1 bathroom with washbasin, 2 double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms all with shower (1 with access to a panoramic terrace).

On the ground floor take place 1 double bedroom with en suite bathroom with shower, a Spa area with jacuzzi and steam room and access to the panoramic garden.

There is also an elevator, connecting the three levels of the house up and the parking area.

Heating   Usage will be metered throughout your stay and you will be charged accordingly. Charges must be paid directly on the spot to the owner or his/her representative before departing. Please note that heating in Italy, when not subject to restrictions by the local Government, is more expensive compared to other countries. If you look for a property in low season, make sure to ask for an estimate of the heating cost. You may be asked to make a supplementary deposit for heating expenses.

 

Water and Electricity    Please note that most of the properties in our portfolio are not the typical purpose-built Mediterranean holiday villas. Most are converted farmhouses or former manor houses, full of character and history. Water shortages do occur; please use it sparingly during the summer months. At the same time, Italy is probably one of the few countries in the world where the government has introduced a system of electricity limitators to contain the national consumption. This means you must be careful when using more than one appliance at once because the limitator will shut the electricity off.

 

Internet Connection   Many of our properties have an internet connection. From our experience, when a connection is interrupted due to technical reasons beyond our control, it is unfortunately very difficult, despite our efforts, to receive immediate assistance from some of the internet providers operating in Italy. We therefore strongly suggest that those who need to access their emails should bring their own BlackBerry, or a similar portable device. Please note that in any case we cannot accept responsibility for lack of these services.
