villa layout
Whenever anyone mentions Positano, the first image to appear before our eyes is the classic pyramid of colored houses sloping down to the sea. Positano is a crisscross of hidden gardens, terraces drowning in colorful bougainvillea, windows overlooking the sea and all kinds of boats bobbing around in the Mediterranean, looking back towards that colorful pyramid. This is Positano, a slow-paced Mediterranean village filled with color and warmth.
Villa la Pistrice perfectly fits into this setting: it is high-class 18th century villa characterized by the charm that only true authenticity can bestow. Sunny and welcoming, it is a treasure hidden in the center of Positano. The villa is accessed along a typical narrow alleyway that turns a corner to reveal this splendid residence with its majestic patio and hidden garden overlooking the rooftops of Positano and the sea.
At the entrance, below the patio, is a bas-relief depicting the “Pistrice”, a mythological sea creature that feeds on fish.
As you enter the villa you will be surprised to discover an ancient authentic wood-fired oven which has incredibly remained intact over the years, and reminds us of the times when people used to make their own bread at home.
Moving in the opposite direction to the oven, there are living rooms and a dining room leading onto a kitchen which is also reminiscent of times past and flooded with diffused light from a large glass window that leads onto a terrace covered by a pergola dressed in vines to provide shade for the outdoor table.
This could be an ideal movie set but instead the villa is open to guests who wish to live here, even for just a brief period.
A majestic stone staircase beneath vaulted ceilings decorated with bas-reliefs leads to the upper floor where the 4 main bedrooms are located, all of which have access to the panoramic terrace where the Tower of Fornillo, located at sea level, is a constant presence.
Villa la Pistrice is an ideal place for anyone who wants to throw themself into the everyday life of Positano, becoming one of the locals. All sorts of public services can be reached by foot, from shops to a wide choice of restaurants. The bus stop is just a few steps away and, although it is not necessary to have a car, the villa has a private garage where it is possible to park two small/medium cars. Due to the low height of the garage entrance it cannot be used to park vans. Fornillo Beach is around 500 meters away. WIFI internet connection

"We had such a wonderful time in Positano. Villa La Pistrice is the perfect place to stay because of its location.
The villa is located next to the bus stop...we would walk down to the beach and shopping area and take the bus back. There is also a wonderful little restaurant situated at the entrance to the villa.
The Villa itself is beautiful. Gorgeous views from the terraces. Courtyard is peaceful and there are tables outside if you decide to dine in. Bedrooms are nice and spacious and the kitchen is fully equipped. I hope to return some day!
Thank you also for being there and answering any questions I had. You made it easy for me to put this trip together. We all had a wonderful time!

"We had a most wonderful time in Villa la Pistrice! We were a party of twelve: eleven adults and a four year old child. We were together in Positano for a family reunion and from the very beginning, as the property manager showed us through the property, we knew it would work beautifully for us. We were never disappointed!
The local shops provided all that we needed in the way of provisions. We were met with friendliness and courtesy wherever we went and everything within such close proximity to the villa.
Each day we spent exploring the Amalfi Coast and to return each day to the tranquility of the villa was pure joy.
So thank you for a most beautiful holiday and for wonderful memories!
Our kindest regards,

"Villa la Pistrice è bellissima!
Il silenzio che regna in questa casa ci ha fato vivere momenti unici come sorseggiare un aperitivo in giardino guardando il mare mentre il sole tramonta dietro la montagna.
Dentro casa anche nelle ore più calde del giorno il fresco ha allietato le nostre giornate e non avremmo potuto desiderare di meglio.
Un grande paradiso nella piccola e deliziosa Positano con una vista magnifica già al mattino al piano superiore appena scesi dal letto.
Speriamo poterci tornare presto
