Casa Il Glicine
House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Casa Il Glicine is part of an old villa elegantly furnished and with beautiful antique terracotta tiles and majolica.
The house offers all comforts to provide a peaceful environment and privacy. From the panoramic terrace you can enjoy a spectacular view, where you can admire the bay of Fornillo with the Saracen tower of Clavel and opposite the island of Li Galli.
The Three islets, Syrenusse for the ancient, is a mythical place where the sirens tried to enchant Ulysses with their song.
The island of Li galli was home to the choreographer Leonide Massive and then the dancer Rudolf Nureyev.
The house is on two levels. The upper floor of the apartment has a fully equipped kitchen (dishwasher, Oven Freezer, crockery) a living room with sofas, armchairs and dining area with fireplace, a double bedroom and a bathroom with shower. This floor has access to the panoramic terrace with garden furniture, benches with cushions, a large table with chairs under a wisteria covered gazebo for dinning and breakfast and chairs where to enjoy an aperitif admiring the beautiful view.
The lower floor consists of a double bedroom with a large bathroom with bath and shower - all covered with antique majolica - A bedroom with a sofa bed to accommodate two people in a room without a window but with air conditioning and another bathroom with shower.
The house provides air conditioning, heating central system, Wi-Fi, bed linen and bath towels changed weekly.
Service does not include a final cleaning fee of 80 euro, daily cleaning if required and a supplement of 140 euro per week for heating or air conditioning depending on the season.
The house is located down a few steps from the main road and in the vicinity there are restaurants, newsagent, supermarket, pharmacy, hairdresser, barber shop and bus stop for the shuttle bus.
The beaches are within easy walk from the main road or down the famous antique steps known as "la scalinatella" which from the house lead down to the main harbour in a few minutes.
The guest can easily access all amenities; restaurants, pharmacy, supermarket, hairdresser and bar.
It is also very close to the main road and bus stop for the shuttle bus that takes around Positano.
The parking is not offered with this property. However there are many garages where to leave the car. In high season, it's not recommended to bring a car as in Positano is not really needed and for trip to nearby villages it is easier and more convenient to get a taxi or public transports. There is a shuttle bus that goes in circle around Positano. There are also buses to nearby villages such as Praiano or Amalfi or Sorrento that can also be reached by boat from the main harbour.
The aiport is at about an hour distance by car. In summer there is a choice of getting to Positano from Naples by hydrofoil but this service needs to be confirmed every season. We recommend taking a taxi directly to Positano as it's more comfortable and also economically more convenient.
I will meet the guests when I am in Positano and will be available for any support as I will be staying nearby.

The Campania region
A pearl of the Amalfi Coast, Positano presents itself as a cluster of steeply-stacked houses tumbling down to the sea in a cascade of sun-bleached peach, pink and terracotta colours.
Surrounded by an intense fragrance of lemon and bright and vivid colors of bougainvillea. A maze of alleys and steps with small shops displaying the typical products of local crafts, which, together with the undisputed beauty of the landscape, have contributed to make Positano and the Amalfi Coast famous world-wide.
John Steinbeck visited in 1953 and wrote in an article for Harper's Bazaar: 'Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn't quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone.'
The panorama stretches between Punta Licosa and Capri, and in the middle, at just three miles from the coast, the three islands of "Li Galli" (Gallo Lungo, Rotonda and Castelluccio) emerge from the sea, once home of the sirens of Homer's Odysseus , and recently of the choreographer Leonide Massine and of the ballet star Nurejev. The 3 islets according to the ancient Greeks were formed by the Mermaids rejected by Odysseus and therefore thansformed into sea rocks.
Positano... it's a great base for exploring the area—you can easily travel by boat to Capri, Ischia and Amalfi or by car to Sorrento, Ravello and the archeological sites of Pompei, Ercolano and Paestum.
Most people coming to Positano are flying to Rome or Naples. The Airport of Naples Capodichino is the closest airport to reach Positano. The city of Naples is also a very interesting and vibrant travel destination and a few days stop over in this beautiful city are certainly worth it.
