A pyramid of brightly-painted buildings clinging, limpet-like, to the rock face, Positano has to be the most characteristic of all the picture-perfect towns on Italy's Amalfi Coast. Where normally you would find streets, here you're greeted by a vertical maze of steps and alleyways, dotted with tiny little shops selling beachwear, handmade sandals and colorful ceramics.
From the beach to the cliff edge terrace where Villa Oliviero is located, the view becomes more and more breathtaking with each and every step you take. From the villa's panoramic terraces, the whole of Positano, the islets of Galli, and the sea which, legend has it, was once inhabited by the Sirens who attempted to seduce Ulysses, can be seen. From here, you feel like rulers of the coast.
Each August 15th, Positano celebrates the Madonna dell'Assunta with a spectacular display of fireworks, launched from the sea. The event attracts thousands of visitors each year. Guests staying at Villa Oliviero get to enjoy amazing views of the fireworks, from the property's terraces.
For Ferragosto and to coincide with the firework display, Villa Oliviero organizes a special dinner on the panoramic terrace.
From Positano, all the other treasures of the Amalfi Coast are just a short and incredibly scenic car or boat ride away!
Thank you for sharing this magical place with us! We are also especially grateful for your kindness to baby Samuel. Our family will dream of Villa Oliviero, Positano until we return.
