Where I stayed
Villa delle Palme

Flag of Italy  , Campania,
Thursday, September 22, 2011

Once in Positano, we got off at the Chiesa Nuovo stop (we only knew this because a passenger was calling it out), then walked a couple of kilometres to our bed and breakfast called the Villa delle Palme at 252 Via Positea (the main street in Positano). Here, we were met by Manuela, a beautiful ray of sunshine after our grueling trip here. We also met Giuliana who runs the inn with her, and they both welcomed us with open arms. We had booked room #24, the best room in the inn, with a terrace facing the water. We got unpacked and borrowed a corkscrew and wine glasses from Manuela to enjoy a relaxing happy hour on the terrace, in the shade and breeze, which were both very welcome.

The owners own two of Positano's best restaurants, the Saraceno d’Oro (attached to the hotel) and the Mediterraneo, just up the street. We decided to have dinner at the Saraceno d’Oro, where we were served by some of Manuela’s relatives Daniel, Pietro (two upbeat and cool dudes) and their father Reno and mother. We chatted with a few people at other tables to get the low-down on where to shop of play here. During dinner, a quiet little cat sidled up under my legs for some food, so I sneaked her a tidbit or two. Dinner was wonderful, and then we went for an evening walk along the main street, popping by many shops that were open late, and even resting on the stairs of a little church where a choir was practicing some songs – heaven!

Al and I both agreed that Positano is for lovers, with its storybook quality, cozy streets, sunny people and beautiful views of the water.
