Overview

About the property

Bedrooms: 2, bathrooms: 1, sleeps 4.

Villa Ines is a charming cottage built sheer above the sea. It sleeps four people. From Villa Ines you will enjoy a wonderful view of the sea, of Positano and of the Amalfi Coast. Villa Ines is 60 square meters (645 square feet). It features direct access to the sea, two nice private terraces with a view of the sea, air conditioning (please read description below to check in which rooms the units are installed) and winter heating.

You will be roughly 1 km (0.6 miles) from the center of Positano, where you will find restaurants, shops, public transportation, the beach and the tourist port. You will find the closest restaurant a few meters (feet) away, the stop for the SITA bus Amalfi - Sorrento line at 150 meters (490 feet) and the closest beach (Spiaggia Grande di Positano) at 1.3 km (roughly 0.8 mile). You will reach Villa Ines from the parking area along a short private walkway that cuts through a garden and includes approximately 30 stairway steps.

You will not need a car to stay at Villa Ines. If you do have one, you will be able to park it on the premises, for a fee, in a reserved parking space.

Villa Ines is built on a stretch of high coast located between the state road and the sea. It is nestled within the green of lush Mediterranean vegetation and the blue of the sea and the sky.

When you step onto its terraces, you will see stretched out before you nothing but the sun, the sky and the sea. To the horizon on your right, looking out over the sea, you can trace the “M”-shaped outline of the islands known as “Li Galli," and, to the left, the magnificent scenery of a stretch of coastline that is among the most fascinating areas of the Amalfi Coast.

On this side, the coast is made up of small promontories, on which small clusters of white houses are scattered, interspersed with enchanting inlets and small beaches, in a half-moon shape carved out of the richly-verdant coastline.

If you look down below, while leaning against the railing of your terrace, you will see a stretch of verdant coast which seems to plunge into the sea.

You will feel privileged to be at the heart of such beauty—it will lift your heart and infuse you with the sheer joy of being alive!

Best of all, you will carry this feeling in your heart well beyond the end of your holiday.

The sunset and the evening that follows hold still more fascinating moments in store for you. From the terraces of Villa Ines, when evening falls, you will see the moon rise, enormous at first as it peers above the coastline, then becoming smaller and brighter as it climbs higher in the sky and reflects on the sea. By this time, the coast and the sea are full of twinkling lights.

When the moon is full, the spectacle is incomparable—and you can enjoy it from your discreetly-illuminated terrace while dining under the stars.

Villa Ines is situated in a complex of vacation villas that fan along the back of a cape that overhangs the sea. The complex extends across a few acres of coastline, and is situated at one of the most panoramic and strikingly beautiful points of the coast.

Slightly above the complex, is the level of the coast road, and from here down to the sea there is a slope of about 200 meters (650 feet). Looking down from the road, you can see gardens set out on irregular terraces that hug the shape of the coastline, and then, further down towards the sea, the full luxury of the Mediterranean flowers and greenery.

In the midst of these gardens, you can see here and there the terracotta-paved terraces of the villas with their sun-lounging beds and their urns overflowing with red bougainvillea. The buildings are well hidden among the greenery, and all that can be seen either from above or from the sea are the terraces. The complex is made up of a number of vacation villas, each one completely independent of the others and hidden in the greenery.

Access to this entire area is reserved to the guests of the villas.

somewhat disappointed

  • 3 of 5

the apartment was great - as described on the website. the location was horrible. would not recommend staying here if you want to be close to center of positano or any market etc. the walk to the market, wine shop, fruit stand was about 3/4 of a mile on a busy road. there is not beach access. the apartment is located on the property of a hotel which is confusing. there is no internet access.

Perfect perch of Positano!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Ines was more than anyone could hope for. Bring perch so high overlooking the Amalfi coast was so impressive.

The two balconies were well used and it was great to have the options pending where the sun was.

The entire Villa was immaculate and well supplied. We did quite a bit of cooking and perhaps a spatula would have been helpful but we made due.

The bonus was the funicular which brought you directly to the beach. It was another world. The Hotel Agavi folks were very accommodating and set us up the first day with umbrellas. The views, the boats, the waves, the swimming...amazing.

This is not a destination for folks with any mobility concerns. We ate pasta guilt free almost everyday due to the stairs that we climbed! The stairs down to the village has 455 stairs and at first it was a big adventure and in no time - it became easier.

It is our hope to return asap! This trip will be a forever memory quantification of the return.

A must see is the Da Adolfo Restaurant. Capri and Amalfi were a short boat ride and very easy to catch at the main docks in town.

Lemons, fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, olive oil, balsamic, prosciutto ham are a staple along with the olives, pesto and pasta.

Thank you to Summerinitaly.com and Villa Ines for ensuring our 'home away from home ' was so comfortable.

We did very much enjoy our stay at Villa Ines

  • 4 of 5

We did very much enjoy our stay at Villa Ines. It was a good size for the two couples and we were able to be very self-sufficient. The view over the Mediterranean is "to-die for".

Happy with the service provided from Summer In Italy. Thank you.
