Positano apartment description

Please note that I have other units in the same condo. So even if this one might be booked I can offer you other accomodations.

The apartment is situated just outside the village of Positano in a peaceful position but within easy reach of the city centre with its typical narrow streets and shops, adorned with colourful local artisan ceramics and fabrics. Not to be under estimated is the value of the private parking that this condo offers, being a rarity on the Amalfi Coast.
The shared swimming pool is in an incredibly panoramic position with a 180° view (terrace of tue apartment is not shared)It is ideally situated for those who prefer not to have their own transport (obviously for the more energetic, taking into consideration the characteristics of the Amalfi coast), there is in fact, just opposite this condo a shuttle bus which passes every 45 minutes and will take you down to the centre of the village
Positano is famous all over the world for its narrow and picturesque streets, white houses, bougainvillea flowers and restaurants.
These places are full of importance for the architectural and historical heritage, as the buildings in Arab-Sicilian style or the wonderful villas of the ancient and noble families.
Positano 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.
The backbone of the area is Viale Pasitea, which is an extremely windy street. The small Flavio Gioia square, from which one can enjoy a magnificent view, is the centre of the town: it is overlooked by the church of Santa Maria Assunta, with its great majolica cupola decorated with geometric patterns.
From the square one goes down to the beach of the Marina Grande, the so-called Spiaggia Grande. On the other side of the town, looking west, the beach of Fornillo opens out just beyond a tract of rocky coast. To the east of Positano lie the beaches of La Porta, Ciumicello and Arienzo.
The area surrounding Positano is full of extremely attractive spots. Near Punta Germano the coastal road takes you over a deep crack in the cliff with a precarious little bridge, called “Ponte dei Libri” (Bridge of Books). The name comes from the regular stratification of the rocky walls, which look like the leaves of enormous tomes superimposed on one another and which one can see better by climbing down the valley along a path.
Leaving Positano for Amalfi, the road runs high above the sea, passing the two charming villages of Montepertuso and Nocelle on the left. On the slopes of Monte Sant' Angelo in Tre Pizzi, stands the imposing “Arco Naturale”, which is particularly beautiful in the morning as the rays of the rising sun fall upon it. Near Punta San Pietro is found the eponymous church which commands a grand and truly splendid view of the coast and the island of Capri, which can be seen protruding from behind Punta Campanella. From Positano trips can be made to Monte Sant'Angelo in Tre Pizzi and Monte Comune, while you can also test your own strength in an arduous climb down the steep spurs which fall sharply away to the sea.

How to get to Positano:
Fly to Naples - casa Mariano is at 56 km from the airport. Cheap flights available with Easyjet.
From the airport you can reach Positano
By car: take the Statale 163 (State Highway 163), which runs along the southern side of the Sorrentine peninsula to Salerno, is better known as the Amalfi Drive. From Naples via the A3 Autostrada to Castellammare di Stabia, which is on the northern side of the Sorrentine peninsula and is linked to Sorrento farther west by Statale 145. Beyond Sorrento, Statale 145 winds westward around the tip of the peninsula and returns eastward along its southern edge as Statale 163 - the Amalfi Drive. The road is a concrete ribbon that rewards visitors with mountain-meets-sea views at every turn, but driving it, as well as the narrow hairpin roads of the Sorrentine peninsula, can be both a joy and a challenge. Medium-size cars are a good compromise.
By public transportation: From Naples you need to take a taxi or bus to the railway station at Piazza Garibaldi.
Travel time about 75' min by taxi - approximately €150,00.

The cheapest solution from Naples is 'Napoli Centrale', in Piazza Garibaldi, where on a lower level you can get the Circumvesuviana local train to Sorrento (60' min, ticket fare 6,00€).
In Sorrento, close to the station is the 'SITA' bus stop to Positano (60' min, ticket fare 1,80€).

How to reach Positano from Sorrento
From Sorrento, you can take the Sita bus to Positano. The Sita bus station faces the exit of Circumvesuviana. There is a newsstand nearby where to buy your ticket. You should buy bus tickets before you get on the vehicle. When you board the bus, validate your ticket in the yellow machine located at the front.

Once in Positano

You can access casa Mariano directly from the parking lot (IT IS INCLUDED IN THE RENTAL FEE), walking through a path made up of alleys and steps (130 steps from parking place to the house).
The Swimming pool is available from mid June to early October.

The living room is cozy and pleasantly furnished: it has a sitting zone -with armchair, television and fireplace - and a kitchen, well equipped, with dining table and chairs.

From the corridor, you reach the night area. There're 3 bedrooms, two are matrimonial and the third is double (it has 2 single beds). One of the matrimonial bedrooms has en-suite bathroom.

The second bathroom can be accessed from the corridor.

Furnishings are elegant and precious. Rooms are spacious, airy and cozy.

Distance from the main beach is 15 min walking, or you can take a bus just outside the gate of the property and get there sooner.
