Villa Cocles is part of a 17th century old convent and has a completely independent entrance, only 16 steps down from the main street.

The Villa preserves all the spacious areas of the original convent structure with its six metres high arches, vaulted ceilings and patios. The results are stunning: a large loft-style area has been created in what once was the convent dining hall with communicating rooms. There are a master bedroom, directly facing the terrace, divided by an original sliding arabesque curtain from the living room and a second bedroom with an old marbled three-light window facing the living room.

The kitchen is directly linked to the terrace; just take a look from the large windows: the profile of the Coast, dotted with the typical coloured houses and villas of this area! This kitchen is really the ideal setting for unforgettable meals.

The atmosphere in every corner is special and the essential and elegant furnishing increases its charm.


from the terrace, a small courtyard with a petit Mediterranean garden, you may look down where the water of Fornillo beach is transparent or up to the deep blu sky framed by secular cypresses. Feel the southern rithm played by crickets.

The terrace, furnished with two hand painted lava tables, is surrounded by lush vegetation and herbs such us basil, origano, thyme, rosmary, which you can use in cooking. On a corner is a deck-terrace solarium for all the times you wish to laid down in this small paradise having your favorite drink.

Relax with a good book, just sit in meditation or enjoy a romantic meal under the stars.

The Amalfi Coast region

"I wasn't born in Campania, but part of me belongs to this wonderland, thanks to mine ancestors. And being part of it, I can only describe and talk about this region with my favorite recepie."

(Marina, the owner)

_Totani e Patate_

Here’s where mare meets terra literally in this dish of squid and potatoes, a classic on the Amalfi Coast. Although it might sound a little strange, try it and you’ll likely be surprised by this warm, cruncy, nectariferous dish.

But among all:

In Ischia visit La Mortella, the spectacular subtropical and mediterranean garden

Circumnavigate Capri and take a bath in crystalline water

Look at the Vesuvio from Pompeii and Herculaneum

Climb up the mountains to catch the most unforgettable vistas of the Amalfi Coast

Reach Naples and loose yourself in the 80-kilometer-long labyrinth of caves

Shop in Positano and refresh with the best lemonade

Take in a concert in Ravello

Hitch-hiking to Montepertuso and Nocelle, the upper villages

Or, cook with us!!!


John Steinbeck wrote:

Positano's history is long, rich and also quite strange; one thing is certainn, however: it started a lond time ago. When Emperor Tiberius moved to Capri bacause he was disliked in Rome. He did not trust anybody. He was afraid everyone wanted to poison him and perhaps he was right. He did not want bread made with local flour; therefore his three-oar boat went along the coast of Positano. This small center has had a remarkable past as part of the Amalfi competition with Venice. In the XVII centuries Positano became enormously rich. Its ships arrived everywhere, traded with the near and Middle East, brought spices, silk and precious woods, greatly requested in the West.

It was at that time that the beautiful Baroque houses still standing against the mountains and decorated with the best things found around the world, were built.

(from "Harper's Bazaar" 1953)

The CHIESA NUOVA area, named after the rebuilted church in XVIII, is the most ancient part of Positano. Locals always preferred to settle upper, away from the direct sea risks. Only after, when Positano changed from a rural town into a fisherman town, new houses started to spreads down.

Chiesa Nuova manteins its local origins, with its fruit and vegetables shop, butcher, fish market. Go to the cozy Bar Internazionale and have breakfast chatting with locals and feel yourself a bit Positanese!
