Make holiday rental accommodation or a villa in Positano, Italy your home away from home

The Italian town of Positano clings to the almost sheer cliffs of the Salerno coast, offering visitors unrivalled access to the Tyrrhenian Sea as well as stunning views to wake up to.

Things to do on holiday in Positano, Italy

Positano is a town of stairways, meaning cars have to be left at one of the car parks at the top of the town, where dedicated porters will be waiting to help you carry your bags down to your Positano villa. 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.

Due to the fame of the “Positano fashion style”, Positano villas are hugely popular with those with one eye on fashion. There are a host of fantastic fashion boutiques throughout the town, and there is always a strong sense of glamour throughout Positano.

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. Tours on vessels ranging from small motor boats to huge, ancient sailing ships can be arranged from the marina, offering wonderful trips along the Almalfi Coast, especially if you are on honeymoon in Positano.

Positano is located on a number of national walking trails along the Almalfi Coast, making a Positano villa a perfect place for walkers to take a holiday in the sun. There are no less than four national paths taking in some of the most untouched wildlife areas in the region as well as some of the most remarkable viewpoints you are likely to discover in the whole of the Salerno district.

Our villa was beautiful. it was clean, and was the "perfect" location. 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
