Casa Malvarosa, is a charming and delightful house in the heart of the picturesque Positano.
It sleeps 6 people. It features a spacious terrace overlooking the sea, one large living room, one double bedroom, two twins bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a separate kitchen.
The house is easily located by Positano's main road (Viale Pasitea) by a small set of steps.
The house is elegantly furnished and features a lovely garden offering a beautiful view of the legendary isola dei Galli, where the mythological mermaid were said to have lived and tried to seduce Ulisse with their singing, and overlooking the Fornillo beach and the famous Saracen Tower of Clavel.
The main beach (La spiaggia grande) is easily reachable through the road or the few steps (la scalinatella, the old steps of Positano) . From the main harbour you can board ferries to Naples, Sorrento and Amalfi and also the island of Ischia and Capri. From the pier you can also board the little local boat (gozzo) that will take you to the local beaches such as Il Fornillo and the Laurito beach.

I leave you with a quote from John Steinbeck who visited Positano in the 50's and fell in love:
“Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that is not quite real when you are not there, but what you hear with beckoningly reality when you have gone. Almost always, when one discovers a place as beautiful as Positano, your impulse is not to reveal the secret to anyone…".
