Best villa in Positano

  • 5 of 5

Our time in Positano was a dream come true. We had a large group of friends joining us, so we were glad to find Villa Oliviero. Everyone had a very comfortable bedroom, we all enjoyed the swimming pool and the generous outdoor space and the sea views stole the show. The chef made good use of the pizza oven on our first night there and the food was so good, we just could not stop eating.

I think we made the best choice for our vacation. Thank you again for making it happen!

Villa Oliviero in Positano

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to find availability for Villa Oliviero during the summer months. Later we found out it had bookings for as much as 2 years in advance.

Like most villas in Positano, this one has a lot of history, but what made it stand out for us was its location overlooking the town, swimming pool with amazing sea views and the outdoor oven pizza.

The staff were excellent and the concierge helped us arrange a variety of activities and services, including boat rental and private airport transfers.

Thanks for an unforgettable vacation!

50th anniversary celebration

  • 5 of 5

Exceptionally exquisite views from all terraces and levels.The villa is more beautiful than the photos and more spacious with all the various terraces and rooms to give everyone privacyThe chef cooked delicious meals The Pizza Party was a fun and memorable experience. Thank you Gennaro...However, my husband and I opted not to go out a few times b/c of traversing the mountain to return. The amount of steps from the road to the villa was mis represented.

Positano is a village and comune on the Amalfi Coast (Costiera Amalfitana), in Campania, Italy. The main part of the city sits in an enclave in the hills leading down to the coast.


Positano was a port of the Amalfi Republic in medieval times, and prospered in the 16th and 17th centuries. But by the mid-19th century, the town had fallen on hard times. More than half the population emigrated, mostly to Australia.

Positano was a relatively poor fishing village during the first half of the 20th century. It began to attract large numbers of tourists in the 1950s, especially after John Steinbeck published his essay about Positano in Harper's Bazaar in May, 1953: 'Positano bites deep', Steinbeck wrote. 'It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone.'

Main sights

The church of Santa Maria Assunta features a dome made of majolica tiles as well as a 13th century Byzantine icon of a black Madonna. According to local legend, the icon had been stolen from Byzantium and was being transported by pirates across the Mediterranean. A terrible storm had blown up in the waters opposite Positano and the frightened sailors heard a voice on board saying 'Posa, posa!' ('Put down! Put down!'). The precious icon was unloaded and carried to the fishing village and the storm abated.


Positano has been featured in several films, including Only You (1994), and Under the Tuscan Sun (2003), as well as being mentioned in the 2009 musical film Nine in the song 'Cinema Italiano'. Positano is also the setting for the romantic adventure novel, 'Finding Positano, A Love Story' (2010), by William James. It also hosts the annual Cartoons on the Bay Festival, at which Pulcinella awards for excellence in animation are presented. From July 1967 and through most of the 1970s, Positano was home of singer-songwriter Shawn Phillips and was where most of his best known work was composed. Also, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards from The Rolling Stones wrote the song 'Midnight Rambler' in the cafes of Positano while on vacation.

Patricia Highsmith based the little port of Mongibello in The Talented Mr Ripley on Positano. The town is also where parts of the film adaptation were filmed.

Today tourism is by far the major industry in Positano. Positano is also very popular for Limoncello and for L'Albertissimo', an alcoholic tipple that can only be found at a small stall at the main harbour.

There are several excellent trips along the Amalfi Coast or to many sights in around, like:

Amalfi and Ravello

Capri and Ischia Islands

Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius

Caserta royal Palace

Paestum, Padula and Pertosa Caves

and many other places in the region and in Italy.
