Villa Pamela A and B are two apartments that are part of a beautiful ancient villa, decorated with arches and terraces. It is built on the beach and is approximately 30 meters (about 98 feet) from the sea. The beach is the "Spiaggia Grande", which is the main beach of Positano. The village revolves around the Spiaggia Grande like if it were a large amphitheatre. The beach is made of grey volcanic fine gravel.
The villa is not far from the other houses, but it is separated from them. It is built in a green space located between the steep rocky cliff and the beach itself.
Villa pamela is built on three levels. From every point of the villa you will have in front of you just the beach, the sea, the sky and the incomparably beautiful profile of the bay of Positano. At the back of the villa you will see a picturesque rocky ridge, higher than the villa, which extends beyond the villa to form a small crescent-shape headland which encloses the beach and closes, on the east side, the beach and the inlet on which Positano stretches. It is a spot of Positano that is called "L'Incanto" ("The Enchantment") for its extraordinary charm. You will feel privileged spending your vacation here.
The villa, which was built as the holiday house of an ancient family, has hosted VIPs and artists. Today it is divided into eight apartments arranged on three floors.
In front of the villa there is a tract of reserved shore, where you will find beach umbrellas and sun lounges to be used by the guests of the apartments.
As a guest of the villa you will also be able to use a small and thriving Mediterranean garden, located on the side of the building, where you will be able to stroll. Going through this garden you will be able to reach, walking for approximately 50 meters (about 164 feet), the center of Positano.
In the summertime the beach in front of the apartment you will find quiet and elegant beach facilities, with a cafe and a restaurant. Nearby you will be able to rent boats and practice water sports, including diving.
Walking on the beach you will be able to reach the "Music on the Rocks", a famous night club built into a grotto on the sea. Walking 50 meters (about 164 feet) towards the center you will find the famous "Stairway of the Lions", which is a main meeting point, and the promenade along the sea with picturesque shops, famous cafes and open-air restaurants.
And do not miss, especially by night and with the moon above the sea, to extend your promenade along the sea to reach the Fornillo beach . You will walk along a pedestrian alley cut into the cliff sheer above the sea, and step after step a new and suggestive view will appear in front of you.
Just a few steps from the apartments you will also find the ancient Cathedral and the maze of pedestrian alleys full of colorful boutiques, where you will be able to stroll, shop for Positano Fashion, relax in characteristic cafes with a drink or an Italian ice cream.
Yet, do not hesitate in plunging into the less crowded alleys and stairways: you will discover the charm of the most hidden corners, because in this place kissed by fortune you will see beauty everywhere around you.
It will be hard to escape the magic of this, and you can rest assured that immediately after you have left... you will want to come back.
At 150 meters (about 492 feet) you will find the quay where the ferries for Capri , Sorrento , Amalfi , Naples and Salerno leave, as well as the mini-cruises to visit the coast and the islands of the Gulf of Naples .

Left on 11/16/2010 for a stay in June 2010 | The Karamas
The location's great, the place's great, the people great, and overall staying experience was amazing. I'll definetily will go back and stay 2 to 3 weeks rather than one week.
however, you take lots of steps to go to market or main street which we all enjoyed since i had teenagers and i wanted to lose few pounds, lol. I would stay at the same place again. Also, the service of the rental office was great because they kept emailing us on regular basis with important information that we found valuable to make our stay more pleasant and hassle free.
