La Veranda sul Mare – Amalfi Coast – Positano

Accommodates 4 - 2 Bedrooms - 2 Baths - A/C - Wi-Fi - Terrace

La Veranda sul Mare is an exquisite little accommodation enjoying breathtaking views over Positano and the entire Gulf of Naples.

La Veranda is ideal for two couples or for a family with one or two well-behaved children. La Veranda has its own independent access either from the Via Pasitea below, via a stairway of about 85 steps, or from the Amalfi Drive above, via a similar approach. When we visited the property recently we had dinner at a pizzeria way above, and we walked up the latter staircase to reach it. It was demanding, but we did it SLOWLY. (We could have chosen the easier but somewhat longer way, via the road below. We could have then returned DOWN the stairs.)

Once you’ve reached La Veranda sul Mare, you can breathe a sigh of relief when you discover that La Veranda is all on one level. NO MORE STAIRS!!! Hurray! You can just relax out on your delightful yellow-surfaced terrace whose garden contains an enormous lemon tree for shade. Have your favorite cocktail, and enjoy those magnificent views!

    15 minutes walking down to the centre and 10 more minutes to the main beach, the ”Spiaggia Grande”. The nearest, smaller beach is Fornillo, at 500 m. approx. The two beaches are about 400m apart and are connected by foot. A stop for the local bus is right on the road below the villa.
    A short bus ride will take you to the top of the village (every 15 min) from where one can get the blue SITA buses to Sorrento (1 h.) or Amalfi (1 h.).
    To the right of the main beach numerous ferries and hydrofoils ply daily between Positano and Capri (50min), Naples (50 min), Amalfi (30 min) and Salerno (1-1/2 h).

    This is a great cottage for 2 couples or for a family with two well-behaved children. This cottage is more suitable for smaller children, as the terrace is fully protected from the precipitous drops characterizing other Positano accommodations.

    Remember that Positano is full of stairs, most of them irregular and with high risers, including the 85 steps you need to negotiate to get up to the Terrazza sul Mare. We strongly discourage families with very small children and anyone with even relatively slight mobilitity issues. A porter service may be possible by prior arrangement.

    There is some noise from the street, which is essentially Positano’s only street with car traffic. Remember, however, that bedrooms are all air-conditioned, meaning you can close them off, turn on the climate control, and neither suffocate nor suffer traffic noise in summer. There’s inevitably going to some noise seepage, but not significant.

    You can (and probably should) come here WITHOUT a car. Have our driver pick you up at the Naples airport, or at the Naples or Sorrento train stations. Then use the money you save by not renting a car (and NOT paying nearly 2 euros per liter for gasoline and NOT paying for the vastly expensive parking garage just down the street) on having that same driver transport you stress-free to various daytrip destinations: Pompeii, Ravello, Paestum, etc. Over the years, we would guess that it’s been about 50/50 between guests who have chosen ro have a car versus those who have opted for a driver.
