Overview

About the property

Bedrooms: 3, bathrooms: 3, sleeps 6.

Villa Balda is a bright and elegant apartment located in the center of Positano. It sleeps six people. From Villa Balda you will enjoy a charming view of the sea, of Positano and of the Amalfi Coast. Villa Balda is 200 square meters (2150 square feet). It features a spacious private terrace with a view of the sea, air conditioning (please read description below to check in which rooms the units are installed), winter heating and WI-FI Internet access.

You will be in the heart of Positano, a few steps from restaurants and shops. You will find the stop for the Flavio Gioia bus interno Positano line a few meters (feet) away and the beach at roughly 1 km (0.6 miles). You will reach Villa Balda from the street level going up approximately 50 stairway steps.

You will not need a car to stay at Villa Balda. If you do have one, you will be able to park it downtown, for a fee, in a private parking lot.

Villa Balda is part of an old house in Positano which dates back to the eighteenth century. The house is located in the oldest and most typical area of Positano, consisting of white houses separated one from another by narrow streets and stairways and embellished by terraces rich in flowers and white masonry arches. Here the houses are built as if they were attached to the steep rocky coast. They all face the sun and the sea, forming that picturesque cluster of houses which render Positano so unmistakable!

You will be halfway between the beach and the state coastal road in a great and convenient position to reach either on foot or by bus either of the places.

The road below the villa is a one-way street run only by local cars and shuttles which take people from the lower to the upper part of Positano, which means from the beach and the pedestrian and shopping streets below to the national road up above.

The elegant shopping streets and the beach can be easily reached as all you have to do is descend some pedestrian shortcuts. Taking the old ‘scalinatelle’ (public narrow streets actually consisting of stairways) of Positano is something not to be missed if your legs allow you to do so! By going through these narrow stairways, besides seeing all the tourist-visited places, you will be able to unveil enthralling angles of Positano. And then, once you have reached the lower part of the town on foot, you can always go up again by bus!

Terrace

The terrace is 30 square meters (320 square feet) large. It is equipped with a table, chairs, a sun umbrella and four sun loungers. From the terrace you will enjoy a fascinating view of the sea and of Positano.

Verandah

The verandah is 20 square meters (215 square feet) large. The verandah is equipped with a long sofa and armchairs. From the verandah you will enjoy a gorgeous view of the sea and of the small Li Galli islands at a distance.

Beautiful Terrace Views!

  • 4 of 5

Unfortunately the owner was in the midst of a remodel. While it wasn't a huge inconvenience, it was unexpected and did create some difficulties - you had to unplug the coffee maker in order to use the microwave/oven and move the toaster across the room to plug it in. The villa is a beautiful property with great potential and the terrace is quite large with phenomenal views, and we really enjoyed the lounge chairs. The bedrooms and bathrooms were very nice, although one had virtually no counter space or hooks/rods for towels, there were only two hair dryers for the three bathrooms, and it would have been helpful to have instructions to operate the AC units (we never did get it figured out). The kitchen was outfitted rather randomly with a ridiculous number of plates, few bowls, barely enough glasses, mis-matched silverware, and lots of large, but no smaller, cookware. I think the large sliding doors to the terrace were broken - one didn't open at all and they didn't close completely. An awning to shade the main room in the middle of the day when it gets hot from full sun would be nice. Overall, our stay was great and we loved Positano.

We loved our week at Villa Balda

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week at Villa Balda... Wish it would have been 2 or 3 weeks! This was our second time renting a villa in Positano (thru Summer In Italy) and we were impressed with Villa Balda's modern finishes. We unexpectedly loved the sectional couch just off the terrace. And the views were more amazing than we expected. More than enough space/privacy for two couples, easily could have accommodated 3 couples or some children. The location was superb! In the midst of some of the best restaurants in Positano and not too far from the pedestrian area of the town or the beach (the steps to Fornillo Beach were easier than expected).

Baldassarre, the owner, made our vacation unforgettable... We took his offer to cook us a meal + wine and not only enjoyed plenty of wine and farm/boat to table cooking, we learned a ton about technique and culture. It was one of the most memorable nights of our trip. As it was Thursday, we asked for a recommendation for Friday's dinner - our last night. Surprisingly he recommended a hotel rooftop in Praiano... This ended up as another most memorable night. He contacted the restaurant on our behalf and we had an excellent table, excellent view, excellent food and drink and an unforgettable sunset over Positano and Capri for our final night.

This being our second trip to Positano via Summer In Italy, we can assure you it will be an amazing vacation no matter where you stay, but have to say Villa Balda will make it phenomenal. We loved our stay and can't wait to return!!!

Personalized, friendly and prompt service from Summer In Italy!

Fabulous, fantastic experience

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous, fantastic experience. We could not have asked for anything more. It’s perfect as is. We hope to return someday and would not consider staying anywhere else.

Don’t miss out on a private dinner catered by Baldasarre [the owner] — it was the best we had in our two weeks in Italy.

Very impressive and attentive operation. Instructions and directions were great. Melanie and Luca were very helpful as was everyone else. Would book again with Summer In Italy.

  • 5 of 5

Deluxe accommodation in Positano positioned with a view that allows full appreciation of the beautiful scene. Two of the three bedrooms have balconies and the terrace off the living room is a wonderful space. Lots of living space, large kitchen.

Close to good restaurants. Far enough from the crowded lower level of town but not too far to walk (but it is a good workout uphill to get home). Very close to a bus stop (the intra-town bus runs every 30 minutes). Keep in mind that its door is 45 steps up from the street, so it's not appropriate for everyone.

Would recommend Villa Balda highly.
