    The house is equipped with a washing-machine and air-conditioning in the bedrooms. Private parking for one car.

  • Il Gigante is a small completely detached house lying just 4 km from Positano, along the panoramic road that leads from Sorrento to Positano, Amalfi and Ravello.

    The wild and harsh landscape of the mountains dropping sheer down into the sea makes a unique backdrop together with the breaktaking view of the coast, the sea and the Galli islands. Il Gigante takes its name from the cliffs that mark the geographical divide between the Sorrentine and Amalfi coasts.

    About 400 metres from the house you will find the start of a windy path that leads down to the beach at Tordigliano, which is a natural beach and accessible only from this path down the mountain, which offers wonderful views, or from the sea by boat.

    The house has been furnished with taste and has all modern conveniences such as: WIFI internet connection, air-conditioning in all the bedrooms, washing-machine, oven, satellite-TV, barbecue outside, private swimming-pool 5m X 3m and a large terrace (about 100 sq.metres), well-furnished with deck-chairs, table for outside dining, wrought-iron deck chairs and an open-air shower. Il Gigante is ideal for couples on honeymoon looking for privacy, but while the house is on its own, the owners live 100 metres away and can assist you with anything you might need during your stay.

    It is 3.5 km from Positano, 15 km from Sorrento, 60 km from Naples. The nearest beach is in Positano.
    Don't forget to ask the villa staff about the wild beach at the foot of the villa that can only be reached on foot (along a path for 'expert climbers').

    The location is ideal for exploring the towns along the coast both east and west and up towards the small villages of Montepertuso or Nocelle with their characteristic trattorias. A half-hour west you arrive in Sorrento and the more relaxed Massa Lubrense for a local meal and beautiful sunsets. Forty-five minutes east and you are in the pretty town of Ravello (visit the two historic panoramic gardens and enjoy lunch in the piazza). Positano is of course a 10-minute drive away.

    A beautiful villa on the Amalfi drive, only a short distance from Positano, and 30mins to Sorrento. The children loved the pool. We enjoyed the comfortable sun beds, beautiful garden and secluded spot. The view is incredible. A car is needed and there are a few steps up to the villa.
    The property is as listed. Very comfortable for 2-4 people. It is clean and well kept. Adequate for cooking with a wonderful outdoor covered dining area. The view from the dining area and the large front patio is incredible. The best on the Amalfi Coast. The property is close to both Sorrento and Positano. It is also very secluded. There are really no other houses very nearby so it is very private and quiet. Perfect place to lie back and contemplate the Mediterranean. You can see the cliffs and a 180 degree view of the water. We stayed for a week in May 2022. The only challenge is that you really need a car for this property. There is a parking space but it is rather small. We had no problems, but as all areas on the coast there, things are tight. I recommend this property very highly. The management was very responsive to anything we needed and check-in was much easier than I anticipated. A perfect place to spend a week or more.
    We enjoyed our stay very much. The property was well kept & clean. The area was very exciting and fun to explore and we had a fantastic holiday :)

    Kind regards,
    Tout d'abord sachez que nous sommes entièrement satisfait de notre location. Bravo ! ci-dessous mon verbatim

    La propriété est située à flanc de montagne, un petit nid bien caché que seuls les habitués peuvent voir !
    La vue y est extraordinaire ! On ne s'en lasse pas même après 15 jours ! La maison et les extérieurs sont très propres et les draps et serviettes sont changés en fin de première semaine.
    Des serviettes pour la piscine sont également à disposition. La piscine n'est pas très grande mais suffisante pour se rafraîchir et très agréable.
    L'accueil et le suivi fait par Vincenze sont parfaits ! Nous l'avons vraiment beaucoup apprécié.
    L’accès au garage est le point le plus sensible, le demi-tour pour se mettre dans le bon sens plus le stationnement sont quelque peu stressant, mais on s'habitue !
    Nous recommandons cet endroit et nous y retournerions avec plaisir !

    Merci à vous,
    It was great! Fantastic views. Stunning sun sets. Very relaxing. Great owners. Very accommodating and service orientated.
    We had a wonderful time at Il Gigante. The villa was clean and airy. The kitchen was well equipped - it had everything needed to make a nice meal or lunch to head out for the day (even ice packs!)

    The patio is large, with an outdoor shower and those 180 view view views! Its truly like a dream enjoying expresso and admiring the Tyrrhenian Sea from the patio.- spectacular!

    The location is ideal to go explore east or west along the coast, and up to the quant towns of Metepertuso or Nocelle. A half hour West brings you to Sorrento and the more relaxed Massa Lubrense for a local meal and gorgeous sunsets. 45 minutes East and you are in the lovely town of Ravello (check out the two gardens and enjoy lunch in the square). Positano of course is 10 minutes drive.

    Driving is tricky on the coast...pull in those mirrors and pay attention and you will be fine. Park at one of the two garages near the Positano ferry dock. A short, boutique filled walk brings you the dock. Charter a boat or rent one yourself and enjoy the entire coast from a different point of view...a very special day indeed! In Ravello there is a lot for a small fee that is safe and its easy to walk to the square from there.

    The villa owner, was a pure delight. Lending us his basil plant for cooking, a pool float and making dinner reservations at La Terra restaurant in Montepertuso. What a view down the coast! The meal and wine and service were incredible...but so was that view from so high up the mountain! Bonus: They will pick you up and drop you off so you can enjoy the local wine with your fabulous dinner.

    The owner could not have been more welcoming, helpful, kind and courteous. He was there when you needed him but did not interfere. He has pride in the beautiful home he built and wants you to enjoy it to the fullest....which we certainly did.

    Thank you VilleinItaly for your excellent service and to the owner for sharing his wonderful villa for us to enjoy!!!

    Nous avons apprécié notre séjour à la villa Il Gigante La situation est idéale, proche des sites historiques et de toutes les commodités. La vue sur la mer est exceptionnelle, la maison est confortable et bien équipée et les espaces extérieurs sont généreux et très agréables. La piscine domine la mer et il est bon d'y rêver.

    Mais surtout c'est la gentillesse et la disponibilité des propriétaires que nous aimerions relever. Victime d'un petit accident le proprietaire nous a conduit à l'hôpital est veillé à une rapide et efficace prise en charge. Toute la famille a été disponible et chaleureuse et ce séjour, grâce à la belle humanité de cette famille, restera gravé dans notre mémoire et dans nos coeurs.

    Monique et Roland
    Nous avons passé un excellent séjour avec Ville in Italia !
    Il Gigante : belle maison confortable et bien équipée, très belle terrasse, vue panoramique magnifique. Dommage que la piscine ne soit pas plus grande. Voiture indispensable.


    We had an amazing stay at Il Gigante. The villa exceeded all our expectations. The view from the pool is incredible, we felt like celebrities. It is such a beautiful part of the world, and the villa is perfectly located to give enough privacy/peace but yet be close to Positano where you can go out for dinner and also close to Sorrento by bus for a nice day trip. The bus stop is on the road just below the villa and runs in one direction to Positano and the other to Sorrento. Some restaurants provide a pick-up service as well which makes for a lovely relaxing evening. I would highly recommend Il Ritrovo restaurant.

    Owners were the perfect hosts, friendly, welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them. They brought us water on arrival, sold us fresh eggs and mama's limoncello (which is unrivaled), lent us a basil plant, even drove us to the shops to help us do groceries, booked restaurants for us, and provided lots of information about the area. They are truly special people and also cooked us a dinner at the villa one night which was phenomenal.

    I can't wait to go back to Il Gigante and repeat this dream holiday.
    There is much to like about this property. Privacy is a prized commodity for us. Il Gigante is about three miles away from the nearest town (Positano) on the Amalfi Highway. Price is always important. Il Gigante was almost $4000 cheaper than the next private villa w/pool, patio, wifi, fully equipped kitchen, air-conditioning, that overlooked the sea. You will need a car, unless you wish to take local buses, which means you may wait 30 minutes or 2 hours per bus. Driving is scarey along the Amalfi Highway - not due to the cliff-hanging highway but because of the local driving habits. Italians put the French to shame when it comes to driving fast on winding roads and tailgating slower cars. Get used to it. Pull over and let them around. The staff at Ville in Italia is very professional and efficient. Their restaurant recommendations are excellent. I will certainly consider using them again. The host family at Il Gigante is responsive when needed. The home was immaculate and the scenery from the house is everything you expect it should be. You will have to climb 40 steps from the road up to the house. In hindsight, I would visit the Amalfi Coast earlier in the year. Positano is wall-to-wall tourists. It's the same in other coastal towns in the summer.
    The location is great, the photos do not do justice to this place. The owner couldn't do enough for us. We ran out of gas for the stove and within 20 minutes of phoning him he had a new cylinder attached and working. His mother is amazing and makes fantastic Limoncello, cheese, jam and a wicked spicy spread. We would definately stay again and have already recommended it to relatives.
    Notre séjour en Italie s'est très bien déroulé.

    Nous sommes très satisfait de la location que nous avions réservée et de l'accueil qui nous a été fait.


    If your idea of a vacation on the Amalfi Coast is a beautiful house tucked into the cliffside, with 365 degrees of spectacular bay and mountain views, comfortable beds, a nice working kitchen, a couple hundred square feet of private outdoor living space, and a pool, within easy driving distance of Positano and Sorrento, then book into Il Gigante. We spent a week here with our six-year-old son, and plan to do it again, soon. The house is comfortable, the setting is marvelous, groceries and a nice meat market are nearby (in Colli di Fontanelle) and the owner and his family are wonderfully helpful in terms of getting you settled in and oriented. A perfect place to get off the grid and into the beauties of the surrounding areas - whether you want to experience the beautiful Amalfi and Sorrento Peninsulas or the ancient sites around Mount Vesuvius or Paestum. All in all, Il Gigante was everything we expected and more.
    We had an amazing holiday and most of that was down to the Il Gigante. What a lovely property, and owners were absolutely lovely and helpful to us. The villa was even nicer than your sight depicted, but I found your website really helpful with lots of useful detail and photos that were true to life (as it can often not be the case!)

    I would particularly like to extend my gratitude to one of your employees, apologies I have forgotten her name as I was in a bit of a panic when I spoke to her. Upon our arrival I realized that we had forgotten the address and directions back home. I called her on her mobile and she directed me perfectly (which is not easy given the hidden nature of the property), looking at the directions provided now I'm not sure I would have even been able to find it without her help! She also called the owners and let them know the situation. She was so kind and helpful, and I think staff like that is an asset to your company.

    Thank you again so much for all your help, and for a lovely holiday!
    Kind regards,

    Il Gigante was a great little house with wonderful views. Can’t fault the house, everything you could need in a house was there and I would recommend it to anyone.

    Our flight was delayed by two hours so we arrived very late, yet the caretaker was great about it and was very relaxed and helpful.

    We were starving and dying for a drink but it was too late to buy either, it was the first house we rented where neither was supplied.

    We had a wonderful time and sure will use you again.
    The villa was really nice and clean. The position overlooking the sea is breathtaking.
    The owners were very friendly and got some basic supplies for us on Sunday which we really appreciated
    Arrival was fine and they were on the road to greet us – really nice

    A lovely villa, well equipped, a great location, friendly and helpful owners – at least 9 out of 10!
    Hope this helps,

    My friend and I had a wonderful holiday at Il Gigante. We were very impressed with your company. You were always friendly and helpful on the telephone. Our villa was really comfortable and we had the most amazing view from our terrace - I dream about it still!!! It was in a convenient location for visiting everything we wanted to see. We absolutely loved Positano. The owner was friendly and very helpful without being intrusive. His sister was also very kind.
    I would love to come back to Il Gigante in the not -too- distant future.

    Hope that this was helpful. I hope that you're keeping well.

    Best wishes,
