Overview

About the property

Bedrooms: 2, bathrooms: 1, sleeps 4.

Villa Ines is a charming cottage built sheer above the sea. It sleeps four people. From Villa Ines you will enjoy a wonderful view of the sea, of Positano and of the Amalfi Coast. Villa Ines is 60 square meters (645 square feet). It features direct access to the sea, two nice private terraces with a view of the sea, air conditioning (please read description below to check in which rooms the units are installed) and winter heating.

You will be roughly 1 km (0.6 miles) from the center of Positano, where you will find restaurants, shops, public transportation, the beach and the tourist port. You will find the closest restaurant a few meters (feet) away, the stop for the SITA bus Amalfi - Sorrento line at 150 meters (490 feet) and the closest beach (Spiaggia Grande di Positano) at 1.3 km (roughly 0.8 mile). You will reach Villa Ines from the parking area along a short private walkway that cuts through a garden and includes approximately 30 stairway steps.

You will not need a car to stay at Villa Ines. If you do have one, you will be able to park it on the premises, for a fee, in a reserved parking space.

Villa Ines is built on a stretch of high coast located between the state road and the sea. It is nestled within the green of lush Mediterranean vegetation and the blue of the sea and the sky.

When you step onto its terraces, you will see stretched out before you nothing but the sun, the sky and the sea. To the horizon on your right, looking out over the sea, you can trace the “M”-shaped outline of the islands known as “Li Galli," and, to the left, the magnificent scenery of a stretch of coastline that is among the most fascinating areas of the Amalfi Coast.

On this side, the coast is made up of small promontories, on which small clusters of white houses are scattered, interspersed with enchanting inlets and small beaches, in a half-moon shape carved out of the richly-verdant coastline.

If you look down below, while leaning against the railing of your terrace, you will see a stretch of verdant coast which seems to plunge into the sea.

You will feel privileged to be at the heart of such beauty—it will lift your heart and infuse you with the sheer joy of being alive!

Best of all, you will carry this feeling in your heart well beyond the end of your holiday.

The sunset and the evening that follows hold still more fascinating moments in store for you. From the terraces of Villa Ines, when evening falls, you will see the moon rise, enormous at first as it peers above the coastline, then becoming smaller and brighter as it climbs higher in the sky and reflects on the sea. By this time, the coast and the sea are full of twinkling lights.

When the moon is full, the spectacle is incomparable—and you can enjoy it from your discreetly-illuminated terrace while dining under the stars.

Villa Ines is situated in a complex of vacation villas that fan along the back of a cape that overhangs the sea. The complex extends across a few acres of coastline, and is situated at one of the most panoramic and strikingly beautiful points of the coast.

Slightly above the complex, is the level of the coast road, and from here down to the sea there is a slope of about 200 meters (650 feet). Looking down from the road, you can see gardens set out on irregular terraces that hug the shape of the coastline, and then, further down towards the sea, the full luxury of the Mediterranean flowers and greenery.

In the midst of these gardens, you can see here and there the terracotta-paved terraces of the villas with their sun-lounging beds and their urns overflowing with red bougainvillea. The buildings are well hidden among the greenery, and all that can be seen either from above or from the sea are the terraces. The complex is made up of a number of vacation villas, each one completely independent of the others and hidden in the greenery.

Access to this entire area is reserved to the guests of the villas.

Direct Access to the Sea

From the property you will have a direct access to the sea and to a beach, partly gravel and partly rocky. You will reach it by way of an elevator. The access to the sea is shared with the other guests staying at the complex. The facilities are available from the beginning of May until mid-October. Terrace

The terrace is 20 square meters (215 square feet) large. You will be able to enter it from the living room through a French door. The terrace is equipped with wood benches, as well as with a table and chairs. From the terrace you will enjoy a splendid view of the sea and of the coast of Amalfi.

Splendid views, unit nice needs updated kitchen utensils.

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed the views, beds, and bathroom. The rooms were very clean but the coffee pot, pots and pans were dirty and no dish detergent supplied. Very few glasses, only one wine glass. We had trouble communicating with the property manager after our ferry was canceled and our arrival delayed.

Cozy Comfort with a view!

  • 5 of 5

The Villa Inez was such a treat!

We stayed with our married son and his wife and so enjoyed the amenities of the property it is associated with, LeAgavi Hotel. The Funicular was so great in getting up and down the mountain. I would stay again in a heartbeat. We appreciated the property owner's manager, Giovani, who was so helpful and accommodating and the view is just out of this world. We loved spending our breakfast time together on the balcony and evenings with a glass of wine before dinner.

somewhat disappointed

  • 3 of 5

the apartment was great - as described on the website. the location was horrible. would not recommend staying here if you want to be close to center of positano or any market etc. the walk to the market, wine shop, fruit stand was about 3/4 of a mile on a busy road. there is not beach access. the apartment is located on the property of a hotel which is confusing. there is no internet access.

It was a wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

It was a wonderful villa! It had a funicular which meant not hauling luggage up and down hundreds of stairs! We also had access to a private beach that we could use. It was out of town enough that it was away from all the tourists, yet we could get into town without difficulty.

A very enjoyable place to stay.

We loved our five nights in Positano and staying in Villa Ines

  • 5 of 5

We loved our five nights in Positano and staying in Villa Ines. The villa was very comfortable and we were thrilled to have two terraces with outstanding views of the water and the Amalfi coast. The two bedrooms were extremely comfortable.

There is an elevator to go down to the private beach. We took water taxis to/from Positano, which was more convenient than a bus and easier than walking.

Summer In Italy was terrific and helped us plan various parts of our trip before we left for Italy (including the purchase of tickets for the Elton John concert in Pompeii) and while we were there. We would definitely stay in this villa again and look forward to working with Summer In Italy as we vacation in other parts of Italy.

We spent a fantastic week at Villa Ines

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fantastic week at Villa Ines. The villa is well-equipped and the view from the balconies is stunning.

We thought Positano was the best place to stay. We walked down into town on numerous occasions and later caught the bus back up to Chiesa Nuova - from there it isn't too far uphill back to the villa.

Summer In Italy have been fantastic throughout the whole process. I wouldn't hesitate to use you again, and have already recommended you to others.
