“Comfortable and spacious with spectacular views” We were two couples and a 9 year old and there was plenty of space for us to relax.The accommodation is really well equipped with comfortable beds and two bathrooms. There are a lot of steps to reach the villa but the views totally justify the effort. Giovanni was a wonderful host and was extremely helpful in giving information about the local area. There are a number of lovely restaurants and a beautiful beach within walking distance. However enjoying dinner on our own private terrace overlooking the twinkling lights of Positano was hard to beat.
This small and beautiful town on the Amalfi Coast is perfect for exploring the pretty Italian coastline. With a great mix of natural beauty and historical architecture, it's a real treat for the eyes wherever you look. Be sure to book your next holiday rental in Positano, for a delightful Italian getaway.
Situated on the Amalfi Coast, this charming little Italian town has plenty to offer. With pretty pebble beaches, calm clear waters, and curious geologic formations, its natural beauty is phenomenal.
But the man-made parts of town are just as charming, with historic churches, stunning architecture, and a great deal of interesting things to see. Stairs are cut in everywhere throughout the town, making for an interesting way to explore this cliffside region.
What to Do
Kayak around for an active way to explore the waters.
Explore the church, Chiesa di Santa Maria Assunta e Cripta Medievale, and see the unusual black Madonna statue.
Top Positano Travel Tips
The town is small and packed with stairs. If you have difficulties with stairs, you may struggle getting around here. There is a frequent bus that runs up and down the hill – it's not ideal for seeing and doing everything, but it's certainly a help if you're tired!
For a charming Italian getaway surrounded by natural beauty, be sure to book your next holiday rental in Positano.

Villa Elena is authentically breathtaking! We felt like we stepped back in time!
Staying at Villa Elena made my daughter and I's trip amazing. We felt like we lived there and felt a bit like something you see in a movie. The owner's, Francesco and wife Antonella were so kind. They helped my daughter and I arrange transportation to and from the airport in Naples. The drive is gorgeous, I highly recommend it. Antonella met with us when we arrived. She was so sweet, she helped me carry my huge suitcase filled with heavy shoes and purses down a flight of stairs. She showed us around the villa and showed us how to work everything.
You will feel like you stepped back in time. You can see and feel the history here. I envisioned the family that lived there so many years ago. Villa Elena is located at the top of Positano, which offers the most beautiful views of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Every morning my daughter and I woke up to this view from the doors that lead out to the balconies from the bedrooms, and then we would walk down to the bottom level where the kitchen and expansive patio that is home to a beautiful canopy of purple flowers, a lemon tree (Antonella let us pick the ripe lemons) and gorgeous potted plants and flowers, where we would have breakfast while enjoying the view of Positano. Along the edge of the patio are areas, decorated with hand painted ceramic tiles that match a cute little table, where we would sit and have our morning coffee or evening glass of wine.
The Villa Elena is located in a prime area.... just steps down from the Villa is Villa Magia, where we were able to make a dinner reservation. A few more steps down and you find yourself on a main street next to Cafe Positano. Definitely stop there and have Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner or just Desert, we did all! The view is amazing and the staff is so friendly... Ask for Eduardo! If you follow the street down you will pass so many beautiful shops and eventually find yourself in the city centre and Spiaggia beach.
I am already planning another trip there in September with some of my family and I will definitely stay here again if it is available. …
Our family of 5 spent a week at Villa Talia in Positano. There was plenty of room and the home had a wonderfull feont porch overlooking the ocean. The home , like many in the area was built about 300 years ago, and while updated, still had sone neat nuances about it, like old doors, and arched ceilings. The location was great, juat a couple of blocks beyond all the crowds, but close enough to be just a nice walk to the beach. Near a cozy grocery store/market that had fresh produce, pasta breads, meats and wine, and made a nice breakfast and capuccino. And located above what we cconsidered the best restaurant in Positano, Da Vincenzo.
Roberto was very freindly and accomodating. He spoke great english and was very responsive if we needed anything.
Perfect spot for family of 5. There are a couple of flights of stairs to get to the house from the street, but it wasn't an issue. In fact if you don't like steps and walking up and downhill, you probably should not come to Positano or Amalfi coast. We would definitely stay hear again! …
Brilliant location with spectacular views
A lovely place with great views over Positano. The owners are great, very helpful and Cooper the dog is always around to welcome you back after a day exploring. The walk down into Positano is quite gentle although we did not attempt the walk back up. The local bus stops just outside the property and the journeys are always entertaining. An excellent base to discover the delights of the Amalfi coast. …
villa genny and emily Positano
This location is amazing! While the apartment was beautiful it was the host that made our stay memorable. Emily welcomed us with open arms while helping us with our luggage. She provided fresh veggies from their garden and brought us a welcome drink. She has great deals as far as tours, restaurants, boat rides etc.. I would HIGHLY recommend this location to anyone that wants to enjoy the exquisite Amalfi Coast. This was a once in a lifetime experience. Thank you Emily and family! We love you!
Rifugio degli Dei - Afrodite
From the moment we arrived we was blown away by the amazing view...David and Anna were the best hosts and the accommodation was perfect. Waking up every morning and opening the bedroom window was the reason I chose this B+B, you will not be dissapointed at all!!! Highly recommend and we will defiantly be back, regardless of the steps we climbed to and from this place once you reach the top you forget all about it and just breath! Thank you once again, will be planning our next visit soon. Ciao :) …
This apartment had everything we needed and was very well maintained. The location is superb - away from the hustle and bustle but very easily accessed by regular bus service which stops almost outside the door. Owners are very helpful and happy to answer questions. Lovely local restaurants within walking distance, but many run free taxi services too. …
