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.

"Positano Stay - Absolutely Amazing!"
We stayed in the Casa San Matteo - Tosca early in May, there were 5 girls sharing the apartment together. We were in Positano for 4 days and wish we could stay longer. We were warmly greeted by Maria-Dolores upon arrival, she was very sweet. The apartment was perfect for us; high enough to enjoy the wonderful views every morning over breakfast and low enough to access all the amenities the town has to offer. The apartment itself is nicely decorated, has a lot of character and extremely spacious. Marco was very kind with sharing his local knowledge in the area which helped us make the most of our stay - he also gave us some of his home grown baby tomatoes and basil which we ate every morning for breakfast! I would highly recommend anyone who is visiting Positano to stay here, I definitely will be coming back next year.
p.s. Forgive me for the belated review!

"Happiness = Villa Tosca and THAT view"
We had a wonderful few days at Villa Tosca, made all the more enjoyable by the lovely people behind it. Massimo, Marco and Maria Dolores were incredibly helpful and arranged our airport transfers, boat hire to Capri, as well as further accommodation following our stay with them.
The apartment has plenty of space for four adults or a small family and the kitchen is well equipped to cater for all meals. So much so that we spent all our evenings there, enjoying the atmosphere from the apartment's amazing terrace, as well as THAT view. Waking up to such an image every morning can only do wonders for the soul!
The apartment is also well located in terms of having a local deli at the top of the stairs, as well as a bus stop with regular buses to take you down into Central Positano. There is no escaping the multitude of stairs in the area, but the apartment is located on a central pathway and trips down to the town centre are only 10 minutes on foot.
It goes without saying that the further down into Positano you go, the further the prices are hiked up. So we wandered up to Bar Internazionale for our coffee and stayed local for tasty and affordable pizzas and pastas.
In short, I can't recommend villa Tosca highly enough and will definitely be returning. The Amalfi Coast is a special part of the world and Massimo and Marco have done an incredible job of capturing the best the area has to offer and will without a doubt make it a memorable experience for you.
