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.

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

Best parts of the villa are the location and outdoor space, convenient to all and only a 10 minute walk from the main beach. Best of all AMAZING views and stairs go directly down to the main road.

There wasn't a need for anything. The view from the terrace was breathtaking. Carla and Carlo were always there if we needed them. I would highly recommend this villa for anyone wanting to spend time on the Almafie Coast. Positani is such a quaint town and so easy to get around. Well, except for all the stairs. We all got a great workout (every day). The restaurants are very close by and all have wonderful food. Taking the bus to Ravello, Sorrento or Amalfie is a no brainier. So easy to get around. Even going to Capri is just a short boat ride from the beach.best This counts as one of my top two vacations EVER. What a great 65th birthday I had. Don't hesitate to book Casa Carolina. It's beautiful.
