Il Saraceno is perched above the sea just a few minutes walk to the center of the village of Positano and conveniently located to public transportation.
Il Saraceno was constructed in the 13th century along with a string of similar defensive watchtowers. They dot the Italian coast from Sicily to Tuscany and most can be viewed by boat on the way to Capri.
Il Saraceno is an extremely unique property in the beautiful village of Positano. It is ideally located for its breathtaking views and easy access to town and the public beach-the local inhabitants are even jealous of this panoramic view and close proximity to shops and restaurants! Il Saraceno is a simple structure with 6' thick walls and only two rooms. The circular environment, with windows overlooking Positano bay, is surrounded by trees and gardens in a gated private property of only seven houses with 210 steps to a private beach. Adjacent to the tower is an annex which is part of the rental. It includes a beautiful terrace, surrounded by flowers, and an outside shower. There are approximately 90 gradual steps down from the street to the property.
The beaches of the Amalfi Coast do not have sand, but consist of smooth round rocks. Aqua-socks or flip-flops are recommended. This property has a spectacular shared cliff-side pool.
Il Saraceno has a large circular panoramic rooftop terrace with one of the best views in Positano. Underneath is the main room with a king-size bed (covered by mosquito netting), sitting area, and a large fireplace. There is also an air-conditioning in this area. Two windows overlook Positano and the coast south toward Ravello. There is a table, hot plate, and a small refrigerator for breakfast preparation. Below the main room, down a spiral staircase, is a spacious bathroom of Oriental flavor. There is satellite TV and a telephone.
A few steps away from Il Saraceno is an annex with a second full bathroom, fitted kitchen and a sitting room with a trundle bed which is most comfortable for children or teenagers. The annex has a telephone and air-conditioning.
Outside the annex is a garden terrace with room for a leisurely lunch or dinner at a wrought iron table for four. Adjoining the terrace is a large solarium where guests may sit, sunbathe, and enjoy the afternoon or the starry night sky. It is equipped with two lounge chairs and an outside shower.

I LOVED Il Saraceno!
My answers for VIA Villas would be all the same (great!) I loved how funky that place is. It's not overly fancy, even though it's spectacular. It felt just right for the town. A bit of bohemian spirit which SO suits me. I can't tell you how happy I am that I know I'll be going there again in the spring of 2013.
More beautiful than I could have imagined. Even better than the pictures portrayed....
Il Saraceno was a magical place to stay.
