Villa Hellen is a recently restored semi-detached villa in the hearth of Positano. Located on the cliff, overlooking the beautiful main beach of Positano and the bay with the active boat traffic. The house is a fascinating place to be, decorated in modern functional Italian style, floors with colourful Vietri tiles and local world-wide famous terracotta, ideal for a family of 4 people. Set on 2 floors, it has two bedrooms, one twin room at the entrance and a separate matrimonial bedroom on the same floor, access though a steep ramp of stairs to the lower floor where you will have the bathroom with shower, with bidet, toilet and shower, at the same floor living room with sofa and TV, kitchen with all modern appliances, a panoramic terrace with tiled table and 4 chairs with view on the bay, then at a lower level there is also a little garden with table and 4 chairs and barbeque. To enjoy the beach life and all tourist attractions of the enchanting Positano, you will only need to walk down some steps on Via Monte (about 200), or, if you do not want to walk the steps, you can also get to the road level walking up 70 steps and catch the local bus to the town centre, looping Positano every 15 minutes. Staying at villa Hellen, you will spend your vacation in an authentic ancient house of Positano, located in one of the most beautiful spots of this famous village.
