Situated in one of the most scenic areas of Positano , walking in the pedestrian area, from Villa Sostella you can easly reach the Big Beach and the Pier ( ferry to Capri and Amalfi) or the beautiful Fornillo beach.

The location - Positano Center:

Villa Sostella is in heart of Positano, between the beaches and the entrance to the town of Positano, making it possible to reach either one either on foot or by the local bus that stops 30 meters from our home.

Nearest - all at walking distance:

Beaches- Walking Distance:

you can easily reach the Pier and the beaches by descending a pedestrian shortcut or walking through the old stairwells of Positano, the ‘scalinatelle’ ( little streets consisting of narrow stairways and steps). This is something not to be missed! Climbing down the steps, passing by the most visited places by tourists, you will discover and unveil enchanting angles of Positano, and then, once you have visited all the little streets by foot, you can always go back up by the local shuttle bus!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were 13 women traveling together. We booked both apartments and it was perfect for our needs. We had plenty of room to sleep in separate beds and there are six bathrooms! We cooked and hung out on the terrace and inside the apartment when the weather wasn't good. Gaetano was so helpful whenever we needed anything, from arranging drivers, to helping with another reservation we had, and answering every question. The apartment is just as the pictures show. It's not fancy, but clean, comfortable and spacious. The local bus has a stop just outside the door. There are restaurants and grocery stores with in walking distance. I would definitely recommend staying here. Both apartments are self sufficient and have great views. Thanks Gaetano!

What a beautiful location and view! The terrace view is unbelievable. We were sad to leave. Gaetano was a superior host and concierge. He made suggestions for us and even reservations. We really appreciated you, Gaetano. The location is perfect. You may walk to town...down the stairs or down the roads. We walked down by the Grotto to the restaurants around the corner. The last night Pietro Rainone was singing at Cafe Mediterraneo and he was Fabulous. Catch him if you can...just around the corner. We went up the mountain to a restaurant where Gaetano made reservations for us. They even pick you up and take you home. Private day tours drove to Pompeii for a day and lunch at a Mt. Vesuvius Vineyard. We took the bus to Amalfi...fun day. Some went to Ravello. We did not get out on the water, because the seas were to rough for the ferries the days we wanted to do. We also spent an evening at Music on the Rocks piano bar...fun night. Although...I would have to say...just being in Positano is enough. One of the most beautiful places on earth. Gracie, Gaetano. We want to return. PS...the apartment is good too. We were five women and it was wonderful to have 4 bathrooms! Also...great morning cappuccino at the hotel restaruant to the left on the little tables overlooking the sea.

Our group had a wonderful time in Positano at Gaetano's villa. He was not only a gracious and attentive host, he provided us with several helpful suggestions for sightseeing, transportation from Naples airport and restaurants. The villa itself was clean and fairly well stocked for our purposes. The view from the terrace was spectacular-overlooking the beautiful Mediterranean! I will say that if it is exercise you are looking for, this is the spot! Walking to town from the villa was great! There are many steps down to the beach and you can also take the road if you prefer.

We had such a fabulous time! Grazie Gaetano!!!! We will be back!!

wow! great rental and owner

  • 5 of 5

probably the best rental we have ever had. The view from the terrace is truly as dazzling as the pictures. The house has everything that you could ask for, and the location couldn't have been better. Moreover, the owner lives just above and is available for anything that you might need. I have no problem in heartily recommending this rental. Great experience

Adorable villa, wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this villa last minute, and everything went very smoothly. Guissepe had his cute mother and father in law meet us at the gate and helped us get settled. This is so wonderful to have 4 rooms, each with their own bathrooms! There is also a wonderful terrace overlooking the city. It's a bit far from town and we got a workout walking up the stairs every night, but it's close to the Chiesa Nuova bus stop, which in the end is ideal so you don't have to lug your backpack around as much. Thanks so much we had a blast! Also, the place comes with a cute cat that can open doors, so if you don't like cats make sure and lock the door at night. I, however, had a lovely furry sleeping companion at night :)

Wonderful location, spectacular view, comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in a great location. We walked down to the center of Positano every day. For those who have trouble walking the steps or hills, the inter-city bus, "Positano Interno" is very convenient and the stop is close to the apartment. Gaetano was a gracious host who was always available for whatever we needed and did everything possible to make sure we were comfortable and happy. We loved sitting on the terrace in the mornings and evenings and just enjoying the view!

Always Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This is my 3rd trip to Positano and my second stay with Gaetano at his lovely apt. Each time, I took family and friends. The apt is well appointed and large. Two large masters and two singles. The views are spectacular and Gaetano and his family are extraordinary. This trip we were all seniors and unfortunately had some health issues. Gaetano went out of his way to assist in getting a car service to take one of our group to a local hospital and even had a doctor make a house call for my sister-in-law. He was our guardian angel! We cannot thank him and his lovely wife for their graciousness and generosity to us. My suggestion for anyone considering a stay in Positano: few places have a limited number of stairs so Gaetano's units are unique; I suggest walking down the steps one level and proceeding from there to shops and beach; for seniors take the bus back since it is all uphill!; the bus stops right across the street from the unit. There are several good restaurants within walking distance and a terrific wine shop run by Lela. Don't hesitate to book either unit. You will love it and the wonderful family that hosts you!
