Italian holidays in Positano & Praiano

 

Our guide to the area

Positano is the jewel in the crown for Amalfi Coast holidays. With its pretty coloured villas, winding cobbled streets, a quaint little beach and plenty of café's, restaurants and boutiques, Positano is the pin-up of the coast.

If you are driving from the west, Positano is the first town you will come across. No journey here is dull; seen from the sea, Positano is set in a dramatic vertical panorama of colours with breath-taking cliffs and vivid painted Mediterranean houses against a backdrop of the blue sea.

The town has been popular with a group of travellers since the early 20th century, attracting poets, artists, authors and celebrities alike. It is not hard to guess why they chose it as their preferred holiday destination. The pastel colours give the town a theatrical feel not found elsewhere on the coast and with world-class restaurants, boutiques and statement villas and hotels, the town still attracts a smart, affluent crowd.

For a relaxing break, the main beach, Spiaggia Grande, is one of the largest on the Amalfi Coast and great to watch the world go by. Positano's Fornillo beach, which can be reached via a coastal path, is a more peaceful spot and perfect to spend a lazy afternoon in the Mediterranean sun.

There are many other paths leading to the little mountain districts above Positano, perfect for those looking for a walk with spectacular and dramatic views.

For those wishing to venture further afield, a wander down to the harbour will give access to a number of boats, where you can explore some of the little bays in the area or visit other famous places along the coast.

Accommodation

Positano accommodation is second-to-none.  Positano villas offer panoramic views across the coastline with terraces and swimming pools and plenty of space to relax and soak up the atmosphere.  Positano apartments often gorgeous balconies, perfect for having breakfast or afternoon drinks al fresco and are often just a stone's throw from bars, restaurants and shops.

Positano villas with private pools are short in supply but high in demand, therefore we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment
