Good Morning Lori,
Just wanted to send a sincere thank you to you & James. We came back on Sunday from Italy & truly had one of our very best vacations.  We loved our little villa & the location, compound, Paola & Daisy were all perfect. The views/terrace were absolutely wonderful. As you know I was nervous having only used hotels/resorts, ships when in Europe.  Your attention to detail before & the management's once there were so spot on. Totally seamless & stress free.  No surprises!! Was wonderful to know you still had access to any amenities/ support you would desire but had privacy & the perfect environment. Was just what we were looking for so authentic & can't wait to return. Also, Gennaro was just great transferring us to & from Rome & also had a beautiful day with him touring the Amalfi coast.  We will always contact you first with confidence when considering a villa vacation & definitely recommend you to our family & friends.  Would love to organize a family vacation to this property!! Will work on that. smile

Have a wonderful safe summer!

My husband and I were married on the Amalfi Coast in 2005 and, in July 2012, we returned for the first time to celebrate our 7th anniversary so this was a special trip for us.

We stayed at Casamare in Positano and it was one of the best vacations we've ever had. The villa was exactly what we'd hoped it would be - incredibly charming, spectacular views, very well-maintained and perfectly located (ie within walking distance to all the activity of town but also secluded enough so it was still peaceful). Access to the cliffside private pool and private beach were also really BIG pluses for us. We felt immediately at home here and never wanted to leave! Working with James at Via Villas was a sincere pleasure. His professionalism and thorough knowledge of Positano and the Amalfi Coast made all the difference in our stay. From sending us handwritten notes wishing us a great stay to providing us with incredibly helpful background information on Positano and the Amalfi Coast generally, it was evident to us that he cared about our experiences and really wanted to make sure we enjoyed and got the most out of our time in Positano.

Paola, Via Villas' property manager in Positano, was also very helpful and attentive, assisting us with any questions we had throughout the week. At our request, Paola also stocked our villa with essentials before we arrived and everything she chose for us was fantastic (eg fresh pastries, Italian cold cuts, cheese, fruit, bread, wine, etc)! It was so great to wake up our first morning and enjoy locally grown fruit, wonderful pastries and an espresso on our lovely terrace overlooking the sea without having to track these items down. We would definitely do the same on our next trip. We've rented homes/villas/flats in Italy, France, the Carribean, Hawaii and throughout California, and Via Villas' commitment to quality and to its clients is outstanding. From this point forward, James will always be our first call/email for villas in Italy."

Casamare in Positano was absolutely wonderful! The condition of the property is excellent. The location, views and amenities are the best we have experienced for a villa vacation. We planned on spending most of our time at the villa property (as opposed to day tripping, etc.) and we loved every minute of it! The Web site is user friendly. The experience was truly the best travel experience we have had. Thank you!

We were extremely pleased with the support via travel provided. The pre-trip packet with advice on cell phone rental, restaurants, villages, etc.. was excellent. James' help when we had to change our travel week was deeply appreciated. Everything went beautifully in Positano. We'd use via travel again in a heartbeat and will share our story with friends/family. Thank you!

James, the week in Positano was fantastic, I want to add that part of this fantastic experience was the apartment and it's surroundings, this enhanced all the experience in a way you can't imagine, the decoration is tasteful, the cleaning impeccable and of course the views and surrounding gardens and private beach were very special. Thanks

The property was perfect for us. It was a great balance of self-service and provided service. The people in Positano--Paola et al--were extremely helpful and kind. The town was exactly as we remembered it--wonderful. It was, in short, a perfect vacation and, as you probably know, not all vacations are. Thanks.

About this Villa

Located in Positano, a few minutes walk from the shopping and dining center in a private gated compound, this apartment overlooks the sea and is scenically surrounded by orange, lemon and olive trees.

Hundreds of years ago in Positano water was stored in Roman-style arched cisterns built in their gardens. The nearby houses were built and named for what surrounded them, and thus Acquabuona was built and later Casamare was built above it. Just a quick five minute walk from the shopping and dining center of Positano, the estate is a private gated compound overlooking the bay surrounded by citrus and olive trees, flowers and vegetable gardens. Like Acquabuona and Il Saraceno, there is a private staircase to a shared pool and further below a small beach. The local grocery store accepts credit cards and makes deliveries.

Access to Casamare is easy; the path is broad with about 85 steps. The owners are both noted designers of theaters, hotels and costumes for opera, theater and cinema. Their talents are amply reflected in the care and taste of the decoration of all the units of their properties. Guests are sure to find Casamare a lovely and relaxing location for a vacation in Positano.

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.
