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! You could never tire of walking the streets of Positano, especially when you discover the Roman Villa Romana, the eight 16th century defensive towers, the Cathedral St Maria Assunta and the Positano Botanical Gardens.

Every holiday and honeymoon in Positano will soon focus on the foot of the town. 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.

From the initial contact, Giovanni was helpful and even more so in person; he met us at a convenient point to guide us through the myriad of stairways to reach the apartment. Be warned there is no left or right in Positano, only up and down. However, the view from the generous balcony down to the picturesque town more than made up for the effort. The penthouse apartment came equipped with everything we needed for the stay and judging by the comments from previous guests, we were not alone in enjoying the charms of Positano. Our stay was during the end of the low season which suited us as I imagine the height of summer would be unbearable in terms of traffic and tourists. Instead we were able to enjoy the excellent restaurants at leisure; a particular favourite was to enjoy an Aperol by the beach before dinner. Overall, a very enjoyable stay at a lovely apartment and Giovanni was a considerate host.

The view of the beach and town was out of this world beautiful. There were three of us staying in the villa - with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, it was very comfortable. We could have spent our entire visit out on the balcony just watching the scenery and activity around us. You must be prepared to climb up and down stairs as there were many in this town, but it just provided the calorie burn to eat the delicious food available - either out in the restaurant or in your own kitchen. Julie was our connection to our villa and provided us with the run through and our keys. She was available whenever we might need her via texting, or she worked down on the beach every day and we could go down and see her. It was great to have a connection who was local. My 80 year old mom was traveling with us and even though the stairs were a challenge, she took them 20 at a time and did quite well. My brother and his wife stayed in the hotel directly in front of our Villa - MiraMar, and it worked out perfect. We adored their staff, especially Rosita - she was a huge help also in just learning our way around. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Positano, and loved the Villa. Thanks. Ann Petersen
