Case del Colono is located in the village of Positano, perched above the sea and conveniently located to public transportation.
Just a quick five minute walk from the center of Positano, Case del Colono is a private gated compound composed of three independent properties overlooking the bay. Acquabuona and Casamare create a duplex cottage, with Acquabuona occupying the bottom and Casamare the top. Each has their own private entrance and terrace. About 75 feet away, divided by citrus and olive trees, flowers and vegetable gardens, is Il Saraceno and the Annex. From Il Saraceno there is a flight of stone steps leading down to the cliffside swimming pool. From the swimming pool there is another flight of stone steps down to a semi-private beach. Even the local inhabitants are jealous of the amazing panoramic view and close proximity to shops and restaurants!
The beaches of the Amalfi Coast do not have sand, but consist of large, smooth round rocks. It is recommended that you bring aqua socks or flip-flops to make the walk to the water with ease. This property has a spectacular shared cliffside pool.
ACQUABUONA: The main entrance to Acquabuona leads from the terrace to the kitchen. The simple kitchen has a four-burner gas stove, oven, microwave, double sinks, and a dishwasher. It opens directly to the terrace. There is also a small room with washing machine off the terrace. The master bedroom has a king size bed and ensuite bathroom with tub and shower. The second bedroom, which has french doors to the terrace, has twin beds and ensuite bathroom with shower.
Outdoors: There is a large terrace with a flower garden, shaded and sun areas. From the terrace there is a private staircase of a few hundred steps to a semi-private beach accessible only by the houses on the property or by boat from Positano. It is advisable to bring your own beach chair since this beach offers no services.
CASAMARE: The Casamare apartment consists of a large master bedroom with ensuite bathroom with bathtub. There is a second bathroom with shower and washing machine. The living room has a sofa bed that sleeps two. Adjoining the living room is a small fully fitted kitchen. There is also satellite TV, heating and air-conditioning. All rooms have balconies overlooking the sea.
Outdoors: The apartment has a comfortable terrace that is bathed in sun all day, with views of the sea and the Galli Islands and featuring deck-chairs and table and chairs for alfresco dining or entertaining.
IL SARACENO: Il Saraceno has a large circular panoramic rooftop terrace (one of the best views in Positano) under which is the main room with a king-size bed (mosquito netting), sitting area, and a large fireplace. 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. Il Saraceno has satellite TV and a telephone.
ANNEX: A few steps down from Il Saraceno is an annex with a second full bathroom, fitted kitchen and a sitting room with a double sofabed. The annex has a telephone and air-conditioning.
Outdoors: Outside the annex is a garden terrace where guests may partake of 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.
