Amalfi Coast Positano Apartment
Parker Villas Exclusive - A private pocket listing available nowhere else
Pastel colors, floral scents, colossal lemons, hidden boutiques, seaside restaurants and a populace whose disposition, like their climate, is seemingly always sunny are all part of what makes Positano one of the world's most treasured spots.
From this lofty elevation, Profumo di Mare and its partially covered terrace offer dreamy views spanning the crystal clear Mediterranean sea and the colorful homes of Positano below. The terrace with a barbecue is conveniently accessed from the kitchen and is furnished for shady al fresco dining. A few steps lead down to small landing that fits a couple of sunbeds. While the apartment is in the midst of others, stucco walls allow some separation from the neighbors.
Characteristic of the classic Moorish architecture found all along the Amalfi coast, Profumo di Mare's white walled rooms with vaulted ceilings are connected by archways. In this two level apartment, each bedroom is on a separate floor and has curtains in place of doors. Colorful Vietri tiles adorn the kitchen, bathrooms and flooring. An air conditioning unit is centrally placed on each level to keep the apartment cool.
While Profumo requires a few steps, Positano demands sturdy legs. Streets are stairways in this cliff side town, and the 15 minute downhill walk to the town center below means a return walk uphill. However, 50 yards from your door is a bus stop with service to the town center in five minutes. This same stop is used for the bus route that services all the coastal towns from Sorrento to Amalfi. Beside this local bus stop is a small yet well stocked grocer, a caffè bar and a restaurant.
Positano's town center offers a number of terrific daily catch restaurants, unique shops, a small pebble beach and a ferry to Capri during the summer months. Sorrento with year round ferry service to the islands or Amalfi at the opposite end of the coastline are both just 30 minutes by car. For those arriving with a car, the keyholder offers instruction on where to find the best priced lots, since the on-street spots are well sought-after. For those arriving by public transit, packing light is a must when considering the number of train and bus connections required to reach this heavenly locale. When booking, please inquire with us if you want to reserve private car service to and from the apartment.
