We had an absolutely wonderful stay at the villa. It was exactly as described. We enjoyed having so much room and modern conveniences. You could gaze out at the view for hours. The stairs to the villa were not an issue.
The property was modern, clean, spacious and nicely decorated. The view was outstanding. It was in a great location to use as a base to make day trips to Capri, Amalfi, Ravello, etc. My 9 and 10 year old children had a blast staying in the loft and having their own private area. The villa was like a fortress in a cave and rooms were very dark so you could sleep in.
There wasn't a drip coffee maker or toaster. We only had one English speaking TV channel.
You were located very close to shops, restaurants, grocery store, banks, etc. You could walk down the street a ways and pretty much be in the heart of Positano. Across the street were stairs that went straight down to the beach. They were quite a workout to walk back up, but you could always take your time and make it up leisurely via the street.

There were four of us, fifty-something year olds. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Galli. We had outstanding weather and beautiful clear nights to enjoy the view of town, the moon became full over the course of the week and hung elegantly, shining on the sea below.
We loved the location, so much just steps away. Yet we were surprised how quiet it was at the villa. The balcony was wonderful for a late night glass of Italian wine and early morning espresso.
Positano was great, lots of restaurants and shopping. We hired a driver to take us to Amalfi and Ravello, although there were lots of buses available. We took the ferry to Capri, very easy to do, definitely worth the 30 Euros per person. There were two beaches within walking distance in Positano, some steps involved but we all enjoyed the exercise.

Villa Galli is a fairly new and very beautiful villa. The view of the sea is absolutely breathtaking. Kitchen was very well appointed whereby we could get breakfast before we took off for the day. Beds were very comfortable and villa overall was very clean which I appreciated because I am a clean nut in general.
The view and the spaciousness made you feel at home and private from other people sharing villa. Closets and drawers were very ample and clean.It was very peaceful and private. Outdoor veranda is really beautiful, and good for early evening beautiful photos. I am a painter and probably will paint some of my shots.
The biggest drawback to this property are the 75 steep stairs in poor state of repair that we had to climb everyday. You have to be in fantastic shape to climb up and down everyday. We managed it fine but would have been easier to have less steep steps. We also had a lot of difficulty with flies. There are no screens anywhere. Even candles we purchased did not help. Water in showers would run hot or cold, very difficult to control.
We loved the shops, restaurants and the beautiful people both Italian and others we met in Positano.

The most enjoyable getaway we've ever had!
The whole thing, but the terrace stood out and became the focal point of our experience at the villa.
There was a funny smell in the kitchen area that we couldn't pinpoint. Also, we didn't have a key to the main door, and neither did the owner, so closing the place up to keep the heat out during the day was more involved than it should've been. We ended up locking ourselves out on the last day when we unintentionally closed too many doors, even though we had all the keys.
The natural beauty of the landscape and towns was indescribable. The locals were very friendly and seemed genuinely interested in helping make sure we had a good time. Drivers and boat captains! were exceptionally helpful and skilled at their chosen trades - we've never seen anyone maneuver a vehicle the way Peter handled his boat!
