The property was inviting and very clean and the owners were the nicest people. The view from the house was amazing, the pictures are beautiful but to see it for yourself is a must. The shops where we bought our groceries were where the locals bought their groceries, we had the freshest produce and a fantastic assortment of fresh local meat to choose from. Fresh homemade desserts from Bar International made the walk down the stairs worth every bite. We had da Constantino's restaurant at the foot of our driveway, one of the best restaurants in Positano. We loved the house and the location so much that we will be returning to Positano and to this rental if it is available.

We were anxious about this place at first I don't think the pictures do it justice. The villa is lovely, view amazing. A bit basic inside but very comfortable, and well equipped. The outside area is really lovely. with an amazing view. The shared pool is down a few steps to the side of the property. Most of the time we were the only people in it. The owners are lovely very hospitable they own the villa next store but only came at the weekends. Its right at the top of positano loads of steps down to the town and beach, but being fit active people this was ok. There is a shuttle bus that runs up and down to the town. Very useful for the way back up. The little store in the village was well stocked, with Italian stuff. The staff very helpful and some spoke good English. They even helped me carry my groceries back to the villa. Wine and beer very good value, beer is expensive everywere else. The restaurant in the village, a bit hit and miss the first meal we had was good, the second the service was awful. We had to wait ages, and they didn't really seem to want to bother. There are loads of great restaurants on the way down to the town and in the town. Really good food for about the same as you would pay at home for a decent meal. Would recommend the villa and the area to anyone. Wish we were going again this year. maybe next. Would recommend this to everyone.
