Where to begin, the amazing views, the crystal clear water, the endless supply of pizza and gelato...It was definitely a case of love at first sight (and bite).
Positano is a small village, situated on the Amalfi coast. The whole village is built on a cliff, which means you have to take hundreds of stairs to move around. We had 200 stairs leading down to the beach and the pedestrian area where you can find restaurants and shops to explore. It is well situated and you can easily do day trips to Capri and the surrounding villages.
We always try to rent a house or an apartment when travelling, it is just more practical and comfortable with kids. We booked with Summers in Italy and I can't recommend their services enough, they were helpful, friendly and professional from start to finish. The house we rented was called Villa Sissi. It is a lovely 3 bedroom home with, in my opinion, one of the best views of Positano from it's large balcony.
We were there for 4 days and tried to do and see as much as possible. One of my highlights was definitely the boat trip to Capri and getting to dive into the crystal clear waters while visiting the surrounding grottos. We only had an hour on the island itself, so we would definitely want to return one day to explore further. The kids loved the ferry trip and the boat ride too.
Another highlight was visiting the restaurant, Da Adolfo. A small boat fetches you mid-morning and you spend the whole day on the little private beach, swimming, lounging in the sun and eating...and boy was the food good! The waiting staff were full of life and passion and just added to the magical experience. You sit with your feet in the sand (or pebbles rather), so the kids were very happy to be able to play while we finished our lunch.
Positano definitely stole our hearts and we can't wait to return one day.
