About this location
The Amalfi Coast region
Antique fishermen' s village Positano lies in a delightful setting.
The Mediterranean climate is mild here in winter and hot and dry in summer, but cooled by sea breezes.
Positano is much frequented by foreigners, both in winter and in summer, and artist find an infinity of subjects here.
It was here that Ulysses, in the Odyssey, narrowly escaped the wiles of the sirens.
The Campania Region formes a crescent along the Bay of Naples.
As a port for trade, Naples has developed many food factories like the famous Macaroni of "Gragnano".
The romantic poets of the 19C would no longer recognise the coast between Pozzuoli and Castellammare.
It inspired Homer and Virgil, who based on it their myths.
Pozzuoli area, of Greek origin, evokes the " solfatara".
We are just one hour far away from Positano, in the volcanic region, which received its name from the Ancients, the Phlegrean Fields (" phlegrean" is derived from a greek word meaning " to blaze").
Steam-jects and sulphurous gases rise from the ground.
By the sea with boats services and hydrofoils visitors can have access to Capri, the Island of Dreams, praysed by many writers.
Its incoparable beauty and superb hotel facilities have attracted many celebrities.
The road which follows the rocky coast between Sorrento and Salerno is the most sophisticated in Italy.
Its innumerable bends, following the coastline, afford constantly changing views.
The Amalfi Coast forms the fringe of the Lattari Mountains, a limestone range broken and worn by running water.
The stairs are a way of life for the 4,000 locals. All the streets in Positano are pedestrian lanes.
Positano' s beaches are pebbly and sandy: the big Positano beach , called Spiaggia Grande , is half pubblic and half private.
To relax a less crowded option to the west of Spiaggia Grande will be Fornillo Beach with many its snack bars.
Locally lines and in particular ceramic can be found at shops throughout town.
Several pizzerias and restaurants with sea view facing the big beach.
Uptown in the villages you will have a big choise of many different restaurants where to have a meal enjoying the scenary.
The villa is the starting point for walking itineraries towards the most beautiful trail of the Amalfi Coast, called "Paths of the Gods".
Magnificent walking overlooking awesome cliffs where the precipitous ground seems to disappear under your feet.
