Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms with double beds with sea view , 2 fully equipped Bathroom.

Built in 19th century and recently renovated, with external walls 80 cm thick and painted in pink, 3 terraces, beautifully planted with bougainvillea, roses and other flowering plants, and a magnificent view of the town and the sea.

The Villa measures 150 square meters; the three terraces together measure more than 110 square meters.

Beside the Villa is an accessible vegetable garden of almost 300 square meters, cultivated with seasonal vegetables (tomatoes, lettuce, potatoes, etc.); if available, you can get some of them free from the farmer; at the end of the vegetable garden there is a big fig tree.

A stairway of stone steps (typical of Positano) takes you to the Villa, starting from Viale Pasitea, the main street in Positano, and going up through the oldest part of Positano.

The Villa has vaulted ceilings and tile floors; part of the furnishing is antique; some pieces are very precious - consequently the Villa is not suitable for children under 12 years of age.

First floor.

The entrance takes you through onto a large panoramic terrace, part of which, shaded by a pergola, is suitable for dining with a wooden table seating 6/10 people.

Three large rooms have direct access to the terrace through glass doors and wooden shutters: a double bedroom, a living room with satellite TV and a fireplace, and a dining room for 6/8 people; from the terrace, through a glass door, you enter a large, fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher.

The double bedroom leads onto the bathroom and the dressing room.

The dining room has direct access to the kitchen, which in turn leads through a glass door onto a panoramic side terrace bordering the vegetable garden cultivated with seasonal vegetables; the terrace is suitable for dining with a wooden table seating 6/8 people.

A small room containing the boiler and the washing machine has direct access to the terrace.

Second floor.

An internal staircase leads you from the dining room to the second floor.

The second floor contains two large double bedrooms, with thick curtains, high capacity wardrobes, antique furniture, pictures and mirrors, as well as a large bathroom with shower.

Each double bedroom has direct access to a panoramic balcony above the large terrace below.

Access and distances.

A short walk down from the Villa takes you within a few minutes to shops, boutiques, bars and restaurants; in about 15 minutes you can walk to the town centre and in ten more minutes you arrive at the main beach Spiaggia Grande.

The nearest beach, Fornillo, is about 500 m from the Villa Petali di Rosa; it is possible to

walk along the coast from Fornillo to the main beach Spiaggia Grande (400 m).

Numerous ferries and hydrofoils travel daily from a small port on the right of the main beach to Capri, Amalfi and Salerno.

In Viale Pasitea, near the beginning of Via del Canovaccio there is the Mangialupini, bus-stop with a timetable pole for the little urban bus company running continuously around the town; they also run buses to Sorrento, Amalfi, Salerno, Napoli e Roma.

Car parks and scooter hire companies can be found in Viale Pasitea, 50 metres from Via del Canovaccio.

Beautiful views and lots of steps!

  • 4 of 5

There is no denying the charm and views from this villa. Looking out from the terrace is nothing short of spectacular. However, in order to get to this villa you must climb 87 steps. Up. If you are not in shape or struggle with exertion this is not the place for you. Getting heavy suitcases up the steps would be very hard for someone not ready for it. That said, once you are up there it is so worth it! The rooms are spacious and there are large doors that open from each room. Be careful, however, as there are no screens and the flies at the end of September were relentless and they bite. But again, the view and the breezes off the sea are gorgeous. The main terrace is large and has a big table with chairs where we spent most of our time when we were there. The kitchen in small, but decently equipped. We stopped in Sorrento on the way into town and stocked up, which was a good thing. Without a car, the closest local market had the necessities only and in searching for something to make for dinner one night we only found some packaged chicken breasts. There is no other selection for meats, but they sold some prepared foods. Just below the house around the corner was the Fornillo Grotto bus stop, where you can catch the bus to the beach, shops and restaurants in downtown Positano. There are a lot of restaurants within walking distance and we never had a bad meal. On the next street below the house there is a small convenience store that kept us in bottled water and wine. Finally, the house manager, Mrs. Daniela, is as sweet as can be but speaks virtually no English and we luckily had someone with us that spoke fairly well so we were able to communicate and get answers to questions we had. Overall, I would recommend the villa - it was a good value for the cost.

Beware

  • 1 of 5

Not private at all!

Old man comes in unexpected multiple times and wants to go to the garden and water or plant.

I paid for a private stay.

Not a professional rental.

Owner's Response: Dear Frank Novielli, good-morning. The old man you are referring to is, specifically, the gardner: as per the contract you submitted and signed, it was expected to have the gardener's intervention, in order to carry out the plants routine maintenance. In fact, this is a mentioned service like the intervention of the house-keeper, 3 times per week. Actually, this is a private villa! Furthermore, we remember your reservation and all the mail correspondence with Mrs. Cona: we gave to your whole group a full assistance, from the beginning of the reservation until you left. As you can read, all the other guest had a great stay in this property and left high rated reviews, denoting the unfoundedness of this one. If you alerted us during your stay about your complain, inasmuch we told you that we were at your complete disposal, we could have solve "this problem" in a blink of an eye! Essentially, however, we assume the problems you encountered not accreditable to our Agency. Kind Regards Giovanna Italian Exclusive Villas

  • 5 of 5

The views from the villa are breathtaking. This villa was clean, organized and very welcoming. There are many steps to get to the main entrance of the villa as well as many steps down to the nearest beach, Fornillo. There are many nearby restaurants, shops, and you are very close to the town center. By the end of our stay, we did not want to leave. We highly recommend this villa and hope to return soon!

Dear Francesca and Matteo

  • 5 of 5

Thank for suggesting this villa for our stay in Positano. The villa is in a great location with a fantastic view. It had everything and more of what we expected, from all modern appliances to three terraces and from interesting antique furniture to fully equipped kitchen and dinning room. We would also like to thank your local contact, Daniela, who made sure your stay was a good as possible.

We will definitely recommend this villa and your services to anyone planning to visit Positano and the Amalfi Coast and will contact you whenever we plan to return to the area.

Thank you again

Peter, Dorana and Elena Wirne

We just returned home from an amazing week at Petali di Rosa in Positano, and have nothing but great things to say about the home. This was our first trip to Positano, and really did not know what to expect when it came to location, but we certainly lucked out. The Villa is set a good distance up the hill in Positano, providing amazing views, easy access to a number of the best restaurants in town, quick access to the Fornillo beach (our favorite) steps, and out of the noisy crowded area but also still an easy walk to the center of town/main beach. The house itself was great, perfect for hosting the 6 of us! We spent most of our time on the back terrace enjoying the beautiful weather, views and food/wine from the area. While we didn’t do much cooking in there, the kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable, and had plenty of closet space. The bathrooms were also quite spacious. Everything was very clean and neat. It was also very cool to be able to point out our villa from almost anywhere in town as it is a very unique color. Daniella and the gardener were very nice and very thorough. Always right on time for our tour when checking-in, to send us off when checking out and the cleaning they scheduled twice during the week. I would give Petali diRosa very high marks, and was a great factor in our incredible week!
