This place was AMAZING!!!

We found Casa Stephania to be a perfect accomodation for two couples. The view, the location, the amenities could not have been better. The surprise telephone call from Stephania made us feel very welcome. Teresa and her daughter Maria cooked for us every evening. The meals were beautifully presented and tasted delicious. It was wonderful to experience the local fare served in a family-style. Luigi was extremely helpful with our transportation, tour arrangements, and assistance with translations. We had a very pleasant experience that shall be remembered for years and years to come.

The villa was great. My only feedback is that beds are a little firm and after a week everyone had a back ache from sleeping on such a firm mattress. Not a big deal, more of a personal preference. It was totally worth it, great villa, great location. Teresa was amazing. We loved her!!

Good morning James! What a fabulous time we had at Casa Stefania and Casa Lorenzo! The accommodations were great, the weather was perfect, except for one flash flood on the steps.  We loved Positano! We traveled to Capri and Blue Grotto. We took the bus to Amalfi and Ravello. Luigi took us to Pompei and Sorrento. We ate at La Tagliara and several local restaurants. Luigi was a great driver and very informative. Thank you for your help. I will send some photos on shutterfly soon.

Very nice property with attention to comfort and a few high end pieces to make it feel like a home and not a rental.

Good morning! We had a wonderful stay at Casa Stefania. The property was perfect. We also used Luigi as our transfer from Napoli, and then again for various excursions. He was great - thanks for recommending him.

James, I just arrived back in NY from Rome and wanted to send you an email of thanks for the lovely birthday cake you and Lori arranged. I was very touched ' thank you. I also wanted to tell you that my friends and I had a wonderful week in the villas ' Casa Lorenzo, Casa Stefania and Villa Donatello. I'm sure you've heard this over and over and over again, but it's heaven on earth. Roseanna and Teresa and the rest of the staff are wonderful ' they made us two beautiful, memorable dinners ' believe me when I say I was traveling with a very discerning crowd (they're my friends and I know them very well!) and without exception, each and every person fell in love with the ladies and their delicious food. I'll be back. Thanks again, James.

James and Lori: It was very kind of you to have a flower arrangement waiting for my wife and I as we arrived at Casa Stefania to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Thank you. The property was excellent, and spot on with the description on your website. It's unfortunate that you can't experience through the website the wonderful aroma from all the flowers and citrus trees, and the sounds of Positano's everyday life. The effort to climb 82 stairs pales in comparison to the joy of the sights, sounds and smells of sitting on the patio overlooking Positano and the Med.

What can we say about Casa Stefania in Positano, Italy. Molto bene! The villa was perfect and made us feel like we really lived in the town rather than being waited on at a hotel like everywhere else people travel. Positano was wonderful and the views never stop. One better than the next. Thank you so much for making this wonderful property available and making us feel like real Italians . . .at least for the week. Seth and Stephanie. Keep up the good work.

Dear James, We are back from a delightful trip to Italy. Positano and Casa Stefania were just as "advertised". Positano, spectacular and Casa Stefania, very lovely. We will be pleased to refer others to Via Travel Design as circumstances arise. We were particularly pleased that the apartment had all the items commonly found in a home. So often rental properties are denuded of items such as books, games and things present in all active households. Their presence at Casa Stefania was a welcome touch. Thank you also for the flowers and sparkling wine. Again, it was a pleasure dealing with Via Travel Design, Inc. and you.

We had a fantastic time, it was a beautiful house and the service provided by Teresa in Positano was wonderful.

We had the most wonderful time and Casa Stefania was PERFECT. My son is already determined to go on his honeymoon to Positano and stay at Casa Stefania. Amenities were wonderful, we asked for a pre-shop of groceries and the selection was perfect. Flavio Gioia was a Godsend for transportation. All of your suggestions were put to great use and out trip was perfect.

What a fabulous vacation! Casa Stefania was very comfortable and Teresa was wonderful! Can't thank you enough for all your help in booking this trip. It was the trip of a lifetime! Can't wait to go back!

Hi James and Lori,

Our stay at Casa Stefania was out of this world. It's location in Positano was perfect for walking into town and taking day trips with a car. The house was exactly as described and seen in the pictures. Although the pictures do not give the spectacular views it's rightful justice. We used your guide of the area frequently and found it extremely helpful. Teresa the caretaker is very sweet and is a tremendous cook. I would recommend Casa Stefania and your services to anyone.

James, We're just on our way back, and wanted to let you know that everything went well at Casa Stefania. We very much enjoyed our stay. It is a very nice villa, and lives up to the pictures and descriptions. Actually, Theresa, Rosanna's mom, did all of the meeting and cleaning, and she's great - even helped us up the steps with our bags. Thanks for your responsiveness in getting everything arranged for us on relatively short notice.

Casa Stefania was wonderful. In fact, it exceeded our expectations. The pictures of the views on the website don't do justice to the actual fact. The views were spectacular. Teresa was absolutely wonderful. Kept the place great and even did all our laundry. We had her cook a delicious meal and she served it out on the terrace. Truly delightful. One, the previous clients had commented on how valuable the recommendations were in the email. And they were 100% correct. James was kind enough to supply a short list from the longer list of recommendations and we did almost every one.

Without exception, they were all excellent choices. Didn't even have to think! In particular, lunch at La Fontelina on Capri was perhaps my fondest memory of the whole trip....the Faragolini rocks, wow! All of the other detailed information was very helpful as well, from the car service to where to buy groceries. All in all, a trip we will never forget. Thanks so much,

Lori and James:

You can't imaginge how delighted we were to find that Casa Stefania was exactly as you had described...it was not only charming and comfortable but well located with beautiful views from the terrace and courtyard. What made our stay even more special, though, were the terrific tips you gave us on restaurants, hikes, excursions,etc. Having your personal input added so much.... that kind of inside track was invaluable to travelers who enjoy getting beneath the surface. Actually, we found no need to even use the guide books. We truly loved every one of your recommendations.

Thank you so much for all that you shared and for all of the assistance in making our first trip to Positano unforgettable. You'll be sure to hear from us soon. Appreciatively,

About Positano

"Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn't quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone". John Steinbeck. Built around a small curving bay on a steep hill overlooking the Li Galli islands, Positano is located in the heart of the Costiera Amalfitana. Once a sleepy fishing village, Positano is one of the most picturesque towns on the Amalfi coast. The typical Moorish style houses are lined up along the slopes facing the sea. Steep steps, narrow lanes, courtyards and gardens create this magical village.
