Upon your arrival at your Positano villa, no matter how breathtaking the view is, remember to pay your porter before heading out to uncover the many marvels which nestle in amongst the stacked houses!

The Marina which stands at the base of the cliff is a great focal point for Positano, especially due to the wonderful little beaches of Fornillo and Porta di Arienzo which flank the marina on both sides. The beaches are small but perfectly formed, and there is always plenty of space in which to place your towel. The marina is also a huge asset due to the number of tour boats which stop here.

                                                                                              We have just stayed in Giovanni's apartment for a week at the end of June. It was a nice size for two people with enough facilities for a holiday stay. The kitchen was equipped with a couple of hobs, microwave and fridge freezer (no oven, but we were eating out most of the time). There was even a washing machine in the bathroom. The bed was comfortable and the apartment has air conditioning throughout. As any reader will no doubt be aware there are 200+ steps up from the road to the apartment, but a) this is not unusual for Positano - you seem to go up and down staircases wherever you need to go; and b) you are rewarded with an absolutely superb view of Positano and the bay below - in fact if you look up from the apartment, the spot on the main Amalfi coast road where all the tour buses stop to enable their passengers to take the picture postcard photo of Positano is just above the apartment (although far enough above that you don't get any road noise). As a previous reviewer has mentioned the parking available is at a charge of €20 per day in a public garage. We found with hindsight that a car wasn't necessary to visit the local towns - public transport would have been more than adequate (€2 to Amalfi on the bus or €8 by ferry both taking about 30 mins). The only time we really used the car was to drive to Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius although there are plenty of other tour options available for these attractions. Overall a great place to stay for Positano and the whole of the Amalfi coast plus Sorrento and the island of Capri.

The villa was light, airy and spacious and well equipped for holiday living. The terraces are a bonus and of course the views over the bay and the town of Positano are fantastico!. The steps (especially from the beach) up to the villa are challenging in the heat and fitness is a consideration. Take your time and all will be well. If you are driving to the villa beware, even with a discount (arranged by Giovanni) it cost 20 euros per day to park! If we visited the Amalfi coast again we would take public transport. It's easy to get about by bus and boat,
