From the private terraces of each apartment, in front of a breathtaking seascape, you will be able to enjoy the sun, the light, the perfumes and the air of Positano. In the evening, you will have the chance to be swallowed up by the sunset, and to seize the moment when a golden light gives life to the colors of the extraordinary view, which then slowly fade into the cobalt blue of the sea and of the sky, only seconds before the pale light of the moon, reflected by the sea, makes the nights so romantic. You will keep so much beauty in your heart forever, always dreaming of the day you will return.

About this location
The Amalfi Coast region
If you think you have no idea of where Campania is, think again. This fascinating land, rich in gulfs, islands and legendary places, is home to the charming landscapes of the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento, the Cilento National Park, Capri and Ischia.
The Campania region is situated in the South of Italy and bounded by the Tyrrhenian Sea (that’s the name of that stretch of Mediterranean). The region is divided into five provinces, whose capitals are Salerno, Caserta, Avellino, Benevento and Naples (Napoli). Naples is also the capital city of the region itself. With roughly 6 million of residents, half of which lives around the city of Naples, Campania has more people than Finland, packed in an area which is 200 times smaller.
If you are fond of archeology, architecture, or simply want to see history come back to life, Campania is a must. The archeological heritage is huge: the temples left by the Greeks in Paestum, the buried towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the remains of Velia, the masterpieces kept in the museums, the churches… and, of course!, the Royal Palace of Caserta, built to be the most sumptuous palace of Europe, with its 1200 rooms.
If the majesty you prefer is the majesty of nature, Campania will not disappoint you. The sandy beaches and the crystal-clear waters of the Cilento National Park, the amazing scenery of the Amalfi Coast, the islands of the Gulf of Naples are just a sampler of what lies ahead of you. From the underground depths of the caves of Pertosa to the heights of Mount Vesuvius, there is something for everyone. By the way, being Mount Vesuvius an active volcano, we respectfully suggest you visit sooner rather than later.
An outline of Campania would not be complete without a mention of its culinary tradition. Many of the world-known Italian dishes have their roots in Campania: pizza, spaghetti, mozzarella, limoncello, cannelloni… Italians know Campania well for being one of the regions that offer the best food, and definitely the region where you can taste the best coffee. Espresso, cappuccino and now interesting variations on the theme such as hazelnut coffee make the day of the residents of Campania, and will make yours as well.
So don’t miss your chance to enjoy the holiday of a lifetime in this beautiful land, where art, history, nature and tradition come together to offer unforgettable thrills.
Situated in a superb spot which opens out southwards towards the centre of a vast gulf, stretching from the Germano tip to Capo Sottile, Positano is one of the famous and popular seaside resorts of the Amalfi Coast. An ancient fishermen's village nestling on the southern slopes of the Monti Lattari, it is crowned to the north by the steep slopes of Monte Comune and Monte Sant'Angelo in Tre Pizzi, between which a deep valley opens towards the sea.
The origins of Positano date back to the tenth century, when the people of Paestum had to run away from the Saracens who had destroyed their homes, and shelter in a Benedictine abbey further south the coast. As the natural disposition of the new site made it much easier to defend, the refugees established a new city there. Within a few decades, Positano had become a maritime centre. At the beginning of this century, its particularly lovely setting and mild climate began to attract tourist, initially Parthenopean aristocrats, who built some villas on the slopes of Monte Comune. In more recent years, the city’s hotels and sports facilities have been upgraded, thus allowing a grater development of tourism, which is currently the main activity of the people of Positano.
The oldest part of the town has preserved the typical aspect of a seafaring village, with its staged terraces descending toward the sea, and houses in the characteristic cubic shape, separated by narrow little streets most of which are marked with steps.
The backbone of the area is Viale Pasitea, which is an extremely windy street. The small Flavio Gioia square, from which one can enjoy a magnificent view, is the centre of the town: it is overlooked by the church of Santa Maria Assunta, with its great majolica cupola decorated with geometric patterns.
From the square one goes down to the beach of the Marina Grande, the so-called Spiaggia Grande. On the other side of the town, looking west, the beach of Fornillo opens out just beyond a tract of rocky coast. To the east of Positano lie the beaches of La Porta, Ciumicello and Arienzo.
The area surrounding Positano is full of extremely attractive spots. Near Punta Germano the coastal road takes you over a deep crack in the cliff with a precarious little bridge, called “Ponte dei Libri” (Bridge of Books). The name comes from the regular stratification of the rocky walls, which look like the leaves of enormous tomes superimposed on one another and which one can see better by climbing down the valley along a path.
Leaving Positano for Amalfi, the road runs high above the sea, passing the two charming villages of Montepertuso and Nocelle on the left. On the slopes of Monte Sant' Angelo in Tre Pizzi, stands the imposing “Arco Naturale”, which is particularly beautiful in the morning as the rays of the rising sun fall upon it. Near Punta San Pietro is found the eponymous church which commands a grand and truly splendid view of the coast and the island of Capri, which can be seen protruding from behind Punta Campanella. From Positano trips can be made to Monte Sant'Angelo in Tre Pizzi and Monte Comune, while you can also test your own strength in an arduous climb down the steep spurs which fall sharply away to the sea.
