About this Villa

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 four 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 up to Casa del Fico. From Il Saraceno there is a flight of 100 stone steps leading down to the cliff side swimming pool. From the swimming pool there is another flight of 100 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 cliffvside pool.

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.
