exceeded high expectations

  • 5 of 5

We are seasoned US travelers that annually rent about 4 months a year at various locations. We stayed at Casa Montechiaro for one month and arrived with high expectations. Our own: clean, well stocked, accurate description, etc. Others: due to the reviews of past renters, the website description and photos, along with numerous email conversations and correspondence with Raffaele we were expecting a top notch apartment. We are happy to report that all of our expectations were not only met, but exceeded throughout the month's stay. It is difficult to add much to the reviews of the others, but we learned that each reviewer's comments are accurate and correct in their assessment, and that the information you find on on the Internet about Casa Montechiaro is accurate and not overstating its attributes. So, trust the website and the reviews. As for our stay, we lived on the terrace most days when not out exploring. Getting around Positano was easy for us...heed the steps warning, but if you are in shape, no issue at all. We had no problem.....a car would be a big problem if you rent or have one. We made our own meals many days during our stay and the kitchen, like all other aspects of the rental, exceeded our expectations. Angela, who came by each week to check on us is a delight.....always so happy and willing to assist and be sure we had anything we needed. Raffaele was the magician behind the scenes....easily available by email to ask for advice and/or arrange anything....along with all of the items mentioned in the other reviews. With his advice, I had one of the best haircuts I have ever had in Positano. Casa Montechiaro is perfect for a vacation week or 1 month.....and your hosts are there when you need them. It is clear to us that Angela and Raffaele truly enjoy making an experience at Casa Montechiaro the best that it can be.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased we had chosen Casa Montechiaro for our stay in Positano. My husband and I have found it impossible to think of anything that could be improved upon. The location is about a ten minute walk down into Positano (lovely views all the way), can be a little exhausting coming back in hot weather though, so you need to have a decent level of fitness especially to manage the steps up to the apartment. I would definitely choose Casa Montechiaro again though, the views from the balcony were amazing and we could have sat there all day. Its position means that it is in the shade in the afternoon, which we were glad of, otherwise the apartment would be much to hot in the evening, we stayed here at the end of May and we didn't need to use the air conditioning. Everything you need for a relaxing break is here. If there was one thing that was a little annoying, was the sound of dogs barking quite frequently, it didn't disturb us to much but the noise just spoilt the tranquillity of the area at times (don't let this put you off, this is an amazing apartment). Raffaele and Angela were fantastic hosts, always available if you have any questions. Visited Sorrento on the bus (great for shopping and much cheaper than Positano) just one tip here, whenever you go somewhere on the bus, don't leave it to late for your return, the queues can get very long in the late afternoon. Capri itself was a little disappointing - to crowded, enjoyed the boat ride more. Went with Positano Boats (based on the beach) a small boat with just about 12 people, more intimate and friendly, we were able to go for a swim off the boat and get close to points of interest around the island. Fantastic places to eat in Positano, Casa Mele the closest, not cheap but amazing food (if you are familiar with Master Chef then this is the kind of food served, need to book though!), service exceptional. We have fantastic memories of our holiday here and I am certain we will be back one day, hopefully back to Casa Montechiaro.

Fantastic views and spotless apartment

  • 5 of 5

I'd read all the previous reviews and wasn't disappointed. This was just perfect after a busy few days in Venice and Rome. The location is fantastic- just 10 minutes walk into the centre, 5 mins from bus stop , 15 mins from beach.

There are 130 steps up to the apartment so be prepared for this or pay for a Porter. However this is why the view is spectacular. We spent hours in the mornings (the sun is there from early to around 1pm) and late evenings on the terrace, watching the boats in the bay below. And it's so quiet given the height but just around the corner from town- so all the amenities but also no noise, other than the cockerels.

The apartment is spotless, well equipped kitchen, large fridge, towels hairdryer and bedding. The provisions left were very welcome as we arrived early evening and didn't need to venture out after our journey as Angela had left enough food and drink for our first meal.

Raffaelle was in regular contact by email to check in but wasn't at all intrusive

We had such a relaxing break and as soon as you sit outside , above the lemon groves , looking out into the clear still Mediterranean Sea, you just go into a different zone. A fabulous place.

Beautiful setting. Gracious and generous hosts. Wonderful week.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay Casa Montechiaro was a superb experience. The apartment is architecturally interesting, pleasingly decorated, thoughtfully outfitted, and very clean. The owner, Raffaele, and his sister, Angela, stocked the kitchen with all the fixings for our first dinner. We enjoyed that meal, the first of many, on the terrace high above the sea. To our delight, a full moon rose over the mountain as we relaxed into our week in Positano.

Raffaele was an excellent host, responsive and available by the phone he provided. He helped us with private parking and access to our car, information about Positano, and recommendations for services and restaurants. Having read the comments of others before we booked, we asked Angela to make a dinner for us. And what a meal it was! Course after course of delicious food served with an excellent local wine. And those tasty leftovers....

All in all our stay at Casa Montechiaro was one of our best vacation experiences. It is already one of our favorite memories.

Thank you, Raffaele and Angela.

Perfect stay in Positano

  • 5 of 5

Look no further for a great apartment for you stay in Positano. This property has it all. It boasts proximity to town and public transportation, amazing views of the Amalfi coast, and cozy and comfortable accommodations. When we arrived at the flat, Angela was there to greet us and help us get settled in. A welcome gift of fresh fruit and chilled wine was waiting for us to enjoy. It was a pleasure to find the flat was spotlessly clean with good wifi, good water pressure, and a fully functional kitchen. Our host Raffaele was always available by phone or email to answer our questions about local transportation(buses, ferries, taxis) and restaurant recommendations. We have stayed in several VRBO's around the world and this place is a great one!

Casa Montechiaro-A true taste of Italy!

  • 5 of 5

Our host Rafaelle, was attentive and extremely helpful from our first inquiry, to helping organize our transfers from Naples to Positano. He also checked in with us during our stay to ensure that we had everything we needed. We were greeted on our first day by the wonderful Angela, who welcomed us to the apartment with a warm smile. The apartment was beautifully appointed and had everything that we could possibly need for our week long stay. However, this is a home that you would be extremely comfortable in for a much longer stay too. The view from the apartment is stunning! Uninterrupted vistas out to sea and across the hillside. We were thrilled to discover that Casa Montechiaro was on the quieter side of the hill leading into the bustling town of Positano, yet only a short walk away from restaurants, beaches and nightlife. A few of our favourite restaurants were Max, Brunos and Casa e Bottega. Our days began early on the balcony, sipping coffee and listening to the roosters calling back and forward to each other as the sun rose over the hillside. Boats drifted silently in the glistening water as a cars and bikes hugged the bend along the coastline ahead. Be prepared to do a lot of walking, especially up and down stairs, during your time in Positano. Think of it as a great way to keep fit and walk off all the extra calories from pasta and gelato! We sought out the quieter beach of Arienzo, explored the cemetery on the hill behind the house and took a boat trip to the island of Capri. The highlight of our stay was a bus ride to the town of Amalfi, from where we hiked the Valle de Ferriere. This was a truly breathtaking walk up from the town, through valleys of lemon groves, passing ancient deserted buildings until we reached the nature reserve area at the very top of the mountain (about a two hour walk each way). Once at the top, we discovered a magical rainforest of vegetation and natural fresh water pools to swim in. It was a true taste of Italy and its rich history. Overall, we found the people of Positano friendly and genuinely helpful towards visitors. We came away feeling as though we had really experienced the Italian way of life, from the food and wine, to the people and the magnificent landscape just waiting to be explored. We would reccomend Case Montechiaro to anyone looking for an authentic Italian experience while still enjoying all the comforts of home. We returned home with our hearts filled with wonderful memories of Postiano.
