During your stay at I tre Ulivi, you will never lose sight of the mundane town of Positano with its houses clinging to the coastal slope nor of the turquoise blue sea: the villa in its exclusive location ‘resides’ on the slopes of the town which is probably the best known at the Amalfi coast.
From the spacious terraces and from the rooms facing the seaside, you enjoy a magnificent panoramic view of the Costiera Amalfitana.
It is not only the fantastic views which make the elegant holiday home I tre Ulivi so attractive, but also its nearness to fine restaurants and to the beach which is only ca. 200 metres off and accessible via steps. A twenty-minute walk takes you to the lively centre of the once contemplative fishing village.
Arriving at I tre Ulivi is spectacular in itself: not far from Positano’s vista point „Belvedere“, a cable car takes you directly to your holiday home.
The spacious, ca. 100 m² terrace in front of the house offers a lot of space for relaxation. Here, you can start your day off with a cup of cappuccino and give in to the magic of the unique location and the charm of Positano right in the morning.
The view from the upper terrace which is designed with beautiful ceramic tiles opens upon the wonderful coast, too. The trees and flowers lining the premises of I tre Ulivi give you the feeling of being amidst nature in spite of the central location and they offer pleasant shade on sunny days.
Thus, you can settle down comfortably with a good book in the shade of a citrus tree on another, smaller terrace. The outdoor barbecue comes in handy for culinary delights on mild summer evenings.
The holiday home with its ca. 180 m² of living space is furnished with a sure sense of taste and style.
Via the large terrace you enter the ca. 30 m² living room which offers various seating. The floor adorned with hand-painted ceramic tiles is particularly beautiful. On the lower floor, you will also find a small eat-in kitchen with washing machine and dish washer and a double bedroom with en suite bathroom.
On the upper floor of Villa I tre Ulivi, there are three bedrooms, i.e. two doubles and one twin. One of the double bedrooms has its own balcony; the other double room lets you onto the large sun terrace.
Furthermore, there are two bathrooms with shower, WC and bidet and another WC.
Should you need entertainment, the TV and the radio with minidisk player at I tre Ulivi might come in handy. Two of the double bedrooms offer air conditioning with integrated heating system. In both bathrooms there is a small stove. A fan provides for pleasant coolness on summer days.
There is one reserved parking space (not suitable for vans) for you on the premises of hotel „Le Agavi“, somewhat above I tre Ulivi. At Positano, you are, in general, better off walking or using one of the regularly scheduled orange coloured city busses „Interno Positano“.
The townscape is dominated by the numerous labyrinthine terraced alleys winding through the town along the slope. Due to its special location, Positano is rather unsuitable for families with small children.
Those enthusiastic about hiking will, however, really get their money’s worth: Sentiero degli Dei, the „Path of Gods“, the best-known and perhaps most beautiful high-level hiking trail at the Costiera Amalfitana runs between Positano (trail end) and Agerola (trailhead).
Nearest train station: Meta di Sorrento (take Circumvesuviana from Napoli Garibaldi), then on by bus to Positano.
Please note: As the accommodation is equipped with partly fragile, partly very personal objects, the owner does not consider it suitable for families with children under three years of age.

Lots of Room with Amazing Views
The villa was well equipped and there was plenty of room for the 8 of us. The funicular is great - a real asset for this property. The town is about a 10 minute walk so easy to get to by taxi or on foot if you want to leave the car parked. We were there in the shoulder season so the hotel Gli Agavi was not opened. Apparently, when it is open, there is a beach club you can get access to from the hotel. In the summer, there is a water taxi from the beach club to the beach in Positano. That would be an excellent way to get into town. The kitchen had everything we needed (including a clothes washer), and the bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. Really, we spent most of our time on the beautiful terrace. The only reason this is not 5 stars is that there was no wifi. It is listed as being at the property and I was told by the property management company that it was available, but there wasn't any (and it didn't look they were going to get it any time soon). Even so, we all had a wonderful time. Truly a special property in a special part of the world.
we are glad you enjoyed your stay at holiday home I Tre Ulivi and spend such a wonderful time at Positano/ Amalfi coast. We regret that wifi did not work. The owner of the house always confirmed it was available upon request and for a fee (as listed). We are going to check it with her again.
Thanks for your evaluation & all the best!

The property is absolutely gorgeous!! Even more beautiful than the pictures. Our family especially enjoyed gathering on the terrace, wine in hand, after a long day of sightseeing or the beach.
The reason for 4 instead of 5 stars is that we did have a few issues. We were very careful to conserve electricity. However, we lost power twice after everyone taking showers (there were 7 of us). The caretaker of the property was very rude to me on both occasions. The second time he told me that he did not work for the "organization" ( I assume he meant the rental agency) and he had other things to do. He was also late for the final walk through when we had a car waiting and a train to catch. Also disappointing was that when I emailed the agency, I was told they would speak with him but it has been almost a week ago and I haven't heard back from them.
We also ran out of toilet paper and I was told that it is provided as a courtesy. Anyone renting might want to bring some with you or buy it upon your arrival.
There is no internet and it is not available for purchase as was mentioned in the description.
The property is not associated with the hotel and on the house notes it mentions to see a particular person if you are interested in using the amenities ( pool, beach, etc.). We did so but it was too expensive, 100€ per person per day. But it did look quite lovely!
In conclusion, the Amalfi coast is simply beautiful. This property was a delightful home base for us. If you don't want to climb the stairs ( but it is certainly an experience you should do at least once!), taxis are available. The authentic decor, the tile work, the water fountain, the grounds...all just gorgeous! The positives far outweigh the negatives.
Celebrity at the Amalfi coast:
'The only perpendicular village in the world' – that is what Nobel Prize laureate John Steinbeck once called the village of Positano. Visitors to this probably best known and at the same time most mundane town at the Amalfi coast will surely confirm that: pastel-coloured houses nestling one upon the other against the slope and the turquoise blue sea form a magnificent setting. For centuries, visitors have been fascinated by this unique sight.
A contemplative fishing village at the beginning of the 20th century, Positano was slowly discovered by painters, writers and musicians in the 1920s. Its gradually increasing popularity came to a climax in the 60s when the international jet set moved into the gem at the Amalfi coast. At times, Positano was regarded as the most mundane place in Italy.
Up to the present day, the coastal town is a popular holiday resort for VIPs from the movie-making scene and from politics; normal tourists can meanwhile find alternatives for the luxurious hotels and expensive restaurants. If you go looking around a bit, you will find one or two typical restaurants or hotels offering reasonable prices.
Charming town centre:
It is mainly flocks of day-trippers who are out and about in the centre of Positano. So you would be ill-advised to venture into the centre by car: besides the many terraced alleys, there is only SS163 bypassing the town and there is Viale Pasitea winding through town in tight turns. You are better off exploring the picturesque centre on foot or using the regularly scheduled orange coloured city busses „Interno Positano“.
Within the town centre, you are attracted by lovely alleys lined with small stores and boutiques. The green and yellow majolica cupola of S. Maria Assunta, the parish church, is visible from afar and absolutely worth a visit.
Positano has two beaches, „Spiaggia Grande“ and „Spiaggia Fornillo“. In summer, locals as well as tourists enjoy their days at the gravel beach. The fact that Positano used to be a sleepy fishing village comes back to mind when you watch the fishing boats offshore as they form a picturesque foreground for the coastal town emerging beyond.
Destination for hikers:
Hiking enthusiasts will, sooner or later, end up at Positano during their tours at the Amalfi coast: it is the trail end of the best known and probably the most beautiful hiking trail at the Costiera, the Sentiero degli Dei. From its trailhead at Agerola it runs past typically Mediterranean macchie, through the mountain villages of Montepertuso and Monte Gambero to its trail end at Positano. Hikers are rewarded with wonderful views of the Costiera Amalfitana and Capri.
