Perfect for us with three teenage children . We are all good walkers and could walk down to the beach and into town easily. Probably not good for small children as so many steps . Stunning property , beyond words with a view you will never forget , any problems were dealt with the same day ( eg air con broke in the bedroom )
We usually had the pool to ourselves , great after a hot day !
Drive at your own risk - be warned , it is scary ! Parking is in front of the property but you may not want to move your car again !

Villa Ernestina a was more beautiful than the pictures portrayed or described. The accommodations were exactly what we were looking for. The villa was immaculate. The terrace overlooked the sea and Positano.
The bus stop was at the base of the steps on the road, so was very easy to get to amalfi, and Sorrento. The caretaker of the Villa was extaordinary, very helpful and kind. He was also available whenever we needed him.

Summer in Italy was awesome. Easy to deal with and beyond our expectations. The villa was even better than the pictures. The location was perfect for our family. The recommendations given by summer in Italy for transportation were great. We highly recommend Summer in Italy and will use them again.

Villa Ernestina is perched off the coast of Positano with views off the huge
balcony that cannot be described easily. If there was not so much to tour on
the Amalfi Coast, we could have stayed on the balcony forever looking at the
Mediterranean, yachts, town of Positano and beautiful sunsets. The owner,
Giovanni, was there to help with anything you needed, from restaurant
recommendations to driving you into town when you miss the bus. Though
not in walking distance from town, unless you are an avid walker, the bus
comes often and takes you into Positano. There is not anything I can say
negative about our experience at Villa Ernestina A.
