Picture-perfect Positano

Draped over the cone-shaped hills of the Amalfi Coast, Positano is nothing short of gorgeous. Its buildings, the hues of Neapolitan ice cream, line in terraces along the verdant cliffside, dropping elegantly down to a cobalt-blue Med. The town is a tangle of fashion stores and cafes, trodden by clothes-conscious fashionistas and native Campanians alike. Whether you come to sip citrusy lemon liqueur while gazing out to Capri, to bob on a private yacht in the happening marina, or just to laze on the pebbles of the Spiaggia Grande beach, Positano holiday rentals can help you channel la dolce vita.

Things to do

Tipples and sips in Positano

From delicious lemon liqueur to wines with rare labels, Positano is doused in taste-bud-tingling tipples. You can head out to find vineyards crashing down the cliffs in areas like Tramonti and Ravello, which together all join to form the Costa d'Amalfi DOC – a protected growing region. The Marisa Cuomo Winery is a must, carved straight into the cliffs of San Michele a little to the east of Positano. Guided tours of the vertiginous grape terraces are backed up by professional tasting sessions there. Even deeper into the hills is where Tenuta San Francesco lies, a rustic vineyard sited on a charming 18th-century farm.

Activities

Living the Positano life

To feel the salty breezes of the Mediterranean as you bump over the bays on a private yacht heading for the grottoes of Capri or Paestum, to have unhurried lunches of Campanian seafood pasta set to the sounds of the waves, to soak up the Italian rays on the stones of the Spiaggia Grande – these are the things that make Positano life so special, so slow, so relaxing. Of course, you could crank up the energy. Perhaps a whirring motorbike ride around the UNESCO Amalfi Coast, or a historic walking tour of gritty, enthralling Naples?

Weather

Languorous Positano summers

It's all about living la dolce vita in Positano. And for that, the sun's required. The upshot is that the hot summer, from June to August, is the most popular time to seek out stays, with temperatures that creep from an average of 20 to 30, often edging would-be travellers close to booking Positano holiday rentals with a pool. The autumn is often a great alternative. It's less busy on the whole Amalfi Coast in months like September and October, the grape harvest is on and the days still get mercury levels in the low 20s.

Natural features

Positano straddles the Amalfi Coast

Positano is one of the first towns you'll encounter as you enter the UNESCO-tagged reserve of the Amalfi Coast. It's a fine introduction to the sheer natural beauty of the region. High cliffs packed with dashes of green are topped with the unmistakable outlines of umbrella pines. Clutches of fragrant lemon orchards fill the gaps here and there. Below, the Mediterranean Sea is deep and impossibly blue. Across the waves is the grotto-carved island of Capri, rock-ribbed and vertical. Inland are the vineyards and woods, peppered with more rustic Positano holiday rentals.
