The Campania region
An ancient rural region, Campania scenery makes comprises of rolling hills, peppered with Roman relics and monuments is a pleasant and idyllic place to try real Italian food as it was in fact the birthplace of the modern pizza, other gastronomic treats famously available in from Campania include Struffoli and Limoncello.
Some of the country’s best sports teams are also based in the region, including football teams, volleyball and water polo teams. Why not spend an evening taking in some of the more recent sports introduced to the area such as tennis or even basketball.
The historic town of Positano is situated on the steep mountains that dive deep into the sea, creating a perfectly dramatic setting for a holiday. The imposing 13th century church is well worth a visit and features majolica tiles in its dome as well as an icon of the black Madonna. The dramatic setting also has been featured in a number of films including 'Only You' and 'Under the Tuscan Sun'. The popular destination has a pleasant Mediterranean climate, with temperatures peaking at 30c in the summer.

"Don Giovanni not worth"
We rented the Don Giovanni and could not wait for the week to be over and be out of there. I am so sorry for the owners, they are very nice people and I am sure they are trying hard, but this apartmen… More
There are occasionally guests, fortunately very rarely, who have a hostile attitude from the very begin of their stay, maybe because they realize that they have chosen the wrong destination for their holidays, maybe because of some tensions inside they group or for some other obscure reason. There have admittedly been some problems with the cleaning on the day of arrival; these were however promptly removed to full satisfaction, as the guest confirms in her comment; the critical attitude continued nevertheless to the limit of arrogance. After only two days the replacement of all towels was imperatively requested, a services normally not included in our prices. We discovered that the towels were taken to the beach and soaked with sea water, something we obviously don't expect our guest to do. Moreover, as a beam of the large sun shade parasol was found broken by our housekeeper, the guests refused to know anything about it; we have not asked for a compensation of the damage, as we could not prove that it was their fault and we didn't want to create further tension. The presence of these guests for one week in Casa San Matteo was rather stressing and we admittedly took a breath of relief when they left. I hope that they will find for their next holiday a destination and a place more suitable for their tastes. As for us, we will continue to strive for improvement and hope to attract to Positano and Casa San Matteo the right people who appreciate the fascination of this romantic spot unique in the world.

We know that what really makes any stay in Casa San Matteo an unforgettable experience is the view of Positano and the beauty of our ancient villa. Nevertheless, we are really putting all our efforts in making our guests feel comfortable and at ease, without being intrusive. Thank you for appreciating the traditional southern Italian hospitality. Understanding not only your language, but also your tastes and desires, allows for providing a prompt reply to your wishes, being it just an extra towel or the organization of a splendid excursion with wine and food tasting, or a special dinner on the terrace. We are looking forward to have you soon back in Positano.
