and it is located on a prominent and panoramic place. The entrance is a few feet
away from the state road, and you can conveniently reach it on foot with no need
to climb any steps. The house dates back to the Eighteenth-century. It consisted
originally of two rooms one above the other with very high vaulted ceilings. Now
the house has been restored so as to embrace two gracious mini vacation
apartments: Villa Sebastiana A and Villa Sebastiana B.

of Positano along this pathway. And then, once you have reached the lower part
of the town, you can always take the bus back up!

in two floors communicating through an indoor staircase. On the upper floor you

The Campania 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.
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.
