About Massimo Predieri

I was brought up in Positano, studied in Switzerland and now live in Rome, from where I manage the booking activity of the villa in Positano and run a company advising business.

Massimo Predieri purchased this apartment in 1964

Why Massimo Predieri chose Positano

This fascinating historical villa with its airy high vaulted ceilings, arches and niches, was bought by my family back in 1964 with the intention to move in after furbishing. We used to live in Positano in another villa located higher in the village. Eventually we decided that it was too big for us and divided it into three holiday apartments.

What makes this apartment unique

The villa is an impressive example of the classical Mediterranean architecture, with a perfect setting half way between the upper Positano and the beach, surrounded by quiet gardens, lemon, fig and many other trees.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful house you have there...we truly love it, and hope that circumstances will allow us to stay there again in the future. (B.S., New York, NY, USA, July 2002) - Everything was wonderful when we stayed at Tosca in May. The view was spectacular from the terrace. We spent most evenings with a bottle of wine sitting on the terrace watching the lights go on around Positano. Having rented other places in Italy, as well as, England, we appreciated how clean our 'home' was. (Cathy Lusk, Austin, Texas, May 2002)

Paasweekend in Positano

  • 5 of 5

Dit Paasweekend doorgebracht in Positano. De eerste keer aan de Amalfi kust en meteen verkocht voor het leven. Casa San Matteo is de perfecte locatie om een paar dagen te genieten van dit prachtige dorp of om zelfs voor langere tijd te verblijven. Het huis is van alle gemakken voorzien en uitstekend onderhouden. De locatie is uitmuntend, je kunt snel de drukte opzoeken en ´s nachts biedt het huis rust. Prijs-kwaliteit verhouding perfect. Ik beveel Casa San Matteo aan iedereen van harte aan.

As Giovanni said "Positano, a little heaven" Enjoy

  • 5 of 5

We visited Casa Matteo, on Via Monte in Positano for our 30th anniversary. It could not have been more lovely. The views from our terrace and every window were breath taking. The furnishings, appointments and gardens were inviting and comfortable, especially after a long day of exploring the town and surrounding area. We enjoyed Amalfi by boat as well as Capri.

The little kitchen was well used, as just above us, on Via Pasitea, we patronized the small grocery with a helpful proprietor, Franco, who offered good wines, cheeses and produce.. We will also always remember, the kindness of the owner, who stopped in and helped us sort out the TV, for English, and the house manager, Giovanni, who was always available and answered our many questions with a smile. We enjoyed our last Positano very special meal, at L'Incanto on the beach, I would recommend this charming apartment whole heartedly!

Exceptional space, exceptional view, exceptional experience!

  • 5 of 5

Even prior to our arrival at this beautiful apartment, we were taken care of by Massimo, the owner. His quick and thoughtful response to emails was very helpful in planning our trip to Positano. Upon arrival, we were met by Giovanni, the manager, who effortlessly and with a smile, carried our luggage to our apartment. The apartment itself is truly lovely. The linens fresh, and clean; the bed very comfortable; the bathroom is generous and gorgeous; the kitchen is well equipped; the walls have beautiful paintings by "Dado", an artist and Uncle to Massimo and his brother, Marco; it is quiet and serene; and the terrace, with its view of Positano and the Sea - superb! What really makes this place exceptional and stand out from the rest, is the great care taken by the owners and by their manager, Giovanni, to ensure a wonderful experience. Giovanni helped us plan our hike on the "Path of the Gods", he provided us with a map, bus time tables, where to go, when to get off, gave us his cell number, just in case, etc.. (We did the hike - and highly recommend it - it was one of the highlights of our trip!) The night before we left (for a reasonable price) Giovanni prepared a delicious 4 course dinner, made with fresh produce from his garden, homemade pasta and two wonderful wines. He prepared the table on the terrace, flowers, music....it was beyond our expectation and the perfect ending to a perfect vacation in Positano. We definitely recommend staying at this beautiful villa - you won't be disappointed.

Owner's Response: The main attraction is obviously Positano, the beauty of the village and the surrounding nature: the sea, the coastline, the breathtaking mountains that surround this little jewel of the Amalfi Coast. Casa San Matteo adds to that the inspiring atmosphere of the architecture, the decoration and the comfort of an old traditional villa. We are glad to have the confirmation that the service and responsiveness of our team provides an added value to the stay in such an enchanting location. Thank you for choosing Casa San Matteo, hope to see you soon in Positano!

Wonderful location and lodgings

  • 5 of 5

Although having lived in Italy for a time many years ago and having made many visits there throughout my life, this was my first time to Positano. Two words-- absolutely stunning. From the relaxed atmosphere, to the incredible vistas, the beautiful beaches, and the food (can't forget that), it was truly fantastic. For anyone looking for that idyllic Mediterranean experience, this is the place. My only caveats are the tiny streets and car drivers who lack the Anglo-American appreciation for "rules of the road." Also, this is not an easy place to visit if you can't do steps. Although, I have to say that by the end of this trip I had lost a few pounds because of the steps despite the constant sampling of foods, wine, cafe stops and dinners. There is the option of public transportation but it seemed overcrowded. Also, many places (e.g., restaurants) have drivers to pick you up at your place and transport you back and forth to their restaurant at no cost. The proprietor of Casa San Mateo (Marco) was very helpful in making such arrangements.

Equally, the Casa San Mateo was an incredible find given the location, quality and cleanliness of the lodgings, generous space, and reasonable pricing. The terrace (where we spent most of our time) was nothing short of fantastic with a lovely combination of midday shade, an ocean breeze, and picture perfect vistas. The final and unexpected pleasure of this lodging is the proprietor (Marco) and the housekeeper (Maria Delores). They were truly invested in making sure that our stay was enjoyable. Besides his amiable personality, Marco was a wealth of practical and historical information that made the trip all the more enjoyable. And in the classical Italian way, Marco is apparently well regarded in the town and was able to pull off some impromptu dinner reservations that worked out very well. Additionally, Marco and Maria Delores are excellent cooks and we had them prepare a meal for us one evening that was served to us on the terrace--truly a culinary highlight of our trip. This was one of the best meals of our two weeks in Italy--which is no small feat. We were so impressed and enjoyed ourselves so much that we requested that they prepare another dinner for us on our last evening.

Overall, this was one of my favorite trips for all the reasons mentioned above and I highly recommend Positano, the Casa San Mateo, and the in-house dinner services offered by Marco. You won't be disappointed.

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband, baby, and I stayed at Carmen Apartment here for 1 full week. We had a lovely time. The apartment is just as described and looks just as pictured. It was casual yet tasteful, very comfortable and best of allllllll, the view was amazing. The location was great too.

Marco was the best! He made us feel right at home, and helped us get our bearings of Positano quickly. When we ventured out to Paestum he gave us perfect directions and even suggested we take a side trip to a nearby buffalo farm (agrotourism is huge in Italy...little did we know but most certainly appreciated once we realized).

Just great!!! You will love it!

Owner's Response: The success of the holiday accommodations in Casa San Matteo is the result of years of hard work: continuously refurbishing the villa taking care its original character is kept, decorating the apartments, improving the furniture and the accessories, making sure all is clean and properly working and responds to our guests expectations. We devote a lot of time and attention to understand our guests wishes and provide them with advice and support to make their holiday an unforgettable experience. Casa San Matteo opened in the Twenties and was one of the first guest houses in Positano . It has hosted for the last 90 years happy and enthusiastic guests from all over the world. We hope to have you soon on our terrace to enjoy one of the most beautiful views of the world.

Car: not necessary

Positano, the jewel of Italy’s Amalfi Coast, clings by a miracle to a mountainside down to the still Mediterranean Sea – a resort that attracts Europe’s beautiful people but retains its small-town charm. (Diana Georgeff, The Age 02/08/03). Positano is build like pyramids of colourful Mediterranean houses around the main beach and overlooks one of the worlds most beautiful bay. The small pedestrian streets around the main church build, with many shops, boutiques, restaurants and cafes, the actual centre of the village. The regional food of the coastline uses mainly pasta, zucchini, fish, fresh buffalo mozzarella, lemons and olive oil. Local restaurants represent the excellence Italian cuisine and take care to hang on to the traditions of cooking. The food will be presented with flair and without formality.

Fascinating activities include boat touring along the beautiful coast to the Capri island, to Sorrento or to Amalfi, food and wine tasting, excursions to the wold famous archaeological sites of Pompeii, Herculaneum and the Greek temples of Paestum. From Amalfi it is a short drive up to the magical town of Ravello, with Villa Cimbrone and its gardens, surely one of the highlights of any visit to the Amalfi Coast.

A tracking tour on the Path of Gods overlooking Positano, the cliffed coast and the deep blue sea is an unforgettable experience.
