Villa Dolce is a romantic and welcoming villa which faces the sun and the sea. It sleeps four people. From Villa Dolce you will enjoy a wonderful view of Positano and of the sea. Villa Dolce is 60 square meters (645 square feet). It features a spacious private terrace with a view of the sea, air conditioning (please read description below to check in which rooms the units are installed) and winter heating.
You will be at a short distance from the center of Positano, where you will find restaurants and the shops. You will find the closest restaurant, a grocery store, the stop for the SITA bus Amalfi - Sorrento line at 100 meters (330 feet) and the closest beach ( Spiaggia Grande di Positano) at 1.5 km (roughly 1 mile). You will reach Villa Dolce from the street level going up a 50-meters (165-feet) public walkway that includes approximately 80 stairway steps.
You will not need a car to stay at Villa Dolce. If you do have one, you will be able to park it along the public roads (the actual distance might vary depending on the availability of parking spaces).
Villa Dolce is a house located in the upper area of Positano, not far from the state road. It is part of a group of houses built on the slopes of a steep hill which overlooks most part of Positano and the sea.
Villa Dolce is surrounded by the characteristic little white houses of Positano, each with its own small garden or flowered terraces and inhabited by local families and not crowds of tourists.
Even Villa Dolce has its own terrace, caressed by the sun all day long. While on the terrace, you will have a view which embraces an area going from the surrounding hills to the picturesque valley where Positano is nestled, not mentioning the view of the coast and the sea.
The terrace is the entrance of the house and stretches before the whole living-room and bedroom area. A small gate and a wall separate the house from the little pedestrian road.
Once on the terrace, you will notice that you have arrived in a special place: the panorama comprising the sea, the coast, and Positano will absolutely enchant you.
The terrace is the perfect frame to such beauty, with its glossy sea green terracotta on the floor and on the top of the surrounding white wall, a red Boungainvillea which stretches out its flowered branches towards the sun, the white garden furniture, the large canvas umbrella, and vases with flowers. Right below the terrace, you will see the green of a small and tidy family vegetable garden, typical of the Amalfi Coast .
The terrace will be your favorite place in the house: while sitting outdoors, you will feast your eyes on a scenery of coast and sea; you will feel as if before a canvas with vivid colors which change hues according to the hours of the day and night. Spending time in the terrace will be definitely pleasant with a good book in hand or while having breakfast in the fresh air of the early morning hours, or even while dining under the stars!
The terrace is 25 square meters (270 square feet) large. It is partly shaded by a perfumed bougainvillea pergola. It is equipped with a table, chairs, a sun umbrella and two deck chairs. From the terrace you will enjoy a splendid view of the sea, of Positano and of the Amalfi Coast.
The living room is paved with tiles with inlaid hand-made mayolica tiles, in the characteristic style of the Amalfi Coast. The furnishings are cozy and comfortable, and include some antique pieces. The furnishings include two armchairs and a divan that unfolds into a double bed. The dining table can accommodate six guests. In this room you will find a large television. From the living room you will be able to enter the terrace with a view of the sea and of Positano through a French door. The room is equipped with an air conditioning/heating unit.
You will be able to enter the kitchen from the living room through an arched opening. It is equipped with a four-burner gas cooker, an electric oven, a refrigerator with freezer, an Italian-style coffee-maker, a toaster and a kettle.
You will be able to enter the bedroom from the living room. It has a matrimonial bed (160 cm/62 inches, wider than a queen-size bed). From the bedroom you will be able to enter the terrace with a view of the sea and of the coastline through a French door. The bedroom is equipped with an air conditioning/heating unit.

Stayed here on the final week of our honeymoon in Italy. Was a great destination to relax and unwind and eventually be able to unpack a case after traveling for most of the previous week around Tuscany. The apartment itself was perfect for a couple, was well equipped with all the essentials and had breathtaking views over the town and sea from the balcony where we started the day with a cup of coffe and finished it with a glass of wine looking out at the boats dotted on the sea and the lights of the town. Two convienence stores within 2 minutes walk were handy and the International Bar is just around the corner but we didn't go there much but is good place to meet the locals.
The bus stop for any of the coastal buses is just at the bottom of the steps which was great as each day we went to a different town along the coast. Out caretaker for the week was very helpful and arrived on the morning we were leaving to help us with our suitcases down to the bus stop and wouldn't accept a tip. Some negatives - A bit of a trek down into the town in the evening and back up but there is a good bus service down into the town which we didn't realise until the third day. Apartment wasn't very clean when we arrived so we spent the first couple hours cleading it especially the bathroom. Overall we really enjoyed our stay, the balcony being the really clincher. We hope to return sometime in the future. Positano is so beautiful.
I would like to take the opportunity to give a hint to future guests when it comes to cleanliness, since the matter is rarely brought up as the apartments are normally clean! What I would recommend is: if you feel that your apartment is not clean, please do take advantage of the special 24-hours-a-day-7-days-a-week phone number that we give you with your voucher and let us know. We will arrange for the maid to be back while you are out enjoying yourselves :-)

Located just above main entrance into town but close enough to walk down to beach (15 mins)or take local shuttle bus. Met on arrival and given all relevant information about property. Steep steps from road to property which is tough with kids and cases on arrival but walking up/down step in Positano is par for the course and you soon get used to it. Very happy with property and would certanly recommend to my friends as a cheaper alternative to staying in local hotels especially with children when you need more space to move around than a hotel offers.
