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.

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.

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.

Living room was small, but adequate as spent most time outside on balcony or away from house or asleep! Kitchen fine and appreciated the toaster! Both bathrooms good, main bedroom great view and good size. The location was perfect (thank-you Melanie for your advice!). Amazing view out over the water and to the beach below, handy to Positano to walk in but away from the bustle and crowds, handy to buses, ferries, but no road noise. In essence, handy to everything, but yet still very private, quiet and peaceful. Safe, secure place to park our car off the road. Having the private path down to the little beach below made this property very special for us, as we love to swim. I think this is one of the things that makes this property unique. We loved the fact that the beach was so small and quiet. Water was just so blue and we loved the sound of the waves below, especially in the evening when relaxing on the terrace. Our favorite memory (apart from being able to walk down and swim at the gorgeous little beach below), was sitting each night out on the deck having our dinner... It was so peaceful, balmy and there was always something happening. First night fireworks in Positano, second night a huge tide with big crashing waves, third night a thunderstorm out to sea with forked lightning for 20 minutes - an amazing memory. We also had planned to do some walks in the area, and the location of the villa was perfect for this as it gave us a range of options for easy starting points. Near the end of our stay, we took the ferry to Amalfi and got a better view of the lie of the land along the coast, and we are so glad we chose Villa Debra B and its proximity to Positano. You are just amazing!!! I cannot think of anything that could be done better! All the staff at Summer In Italy have been just unbelievably helpful and supportive. The chats we were able to have on your system whereby when you login to the site, the box comes up in the corner with a photo of the staff member on duty who can instantly chat with you and answer questions, is the best system I have ever seen in a business. It was just so helpful, and I think was the crucial thing for us in choosing the right villa, as we nearly chose to stay in Nocelle, which we now realize would not have suited us nearly so well (thank you again Melanie!). For me the key thing that makes your company stand out, was that the whole experience of booking accommodation felt suc
