Plenty of room for our family of 5 (ages 35, 33, 10, 8, and 5)--didn't even use one of the rooms

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time in Positano thanks to this place and Giulio, the host. His family owns the villa, as well as the B&B across the street with a pool and private beach/cove. We arrived and Guilio, his brother, and father all greeted us and took our bags up to our villa and showed us around. The villa is a few minute walk up some stairs from the main road above the B&B. From that moment forward, Giulio was our personal concierge, txting and calling and making reservations for us for anything we wanted to do or eat, all upon request. He knows everyone and everything in the city and everyone knows him. In fact, I dropped his name one night at a restaurant (Mele) that was fully booked for the night and they made a special table for my family of 5, because of Giulio. The villa is a block or two outside of the city along the main road, but the short walking didn't bother us at all, even with our 5-year-old. In fact, the walk in or out of the city was one of my favorite times of day, as it would allow us to see the city in all of her glory in the morning or at night.

Across the street from the villa, down some stairs, there's a nice little-shared pool with the B&B guests, as well as a private beach/cove at ocean level. FYI - none of the beaches in Positano have sand, they're like smooth little rocks, so water shoes are a plus, but not a requirement.

The home has AC in the bedrooms but not in the living areas, so you either keep the bedroom doors closed and the living doors open to the outside, or close the living doors to the outside and let the two main bedroom AC units (one up stairs and one down stairs) cool the whole house, which is what we did. Was nice coming home to a nice villa every day. However, others might just like the sea breeze, so whatever you prefer. The house felt really secure and private. The water pressure could have been a little stronger, but not bad.

We loved our time in Positano and will definitely be returning! Thank you Giulio, see you again soon!

Our family just returned from Positano and our stay at Villa Ermelinda was a dream come true

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from Positano and our stay at Villa Ermelinda was a dream come true! The villa was perfect for our family and the views were spectacular.

The owners were always there to answer any questions and to make recommendations.

The pool and the beach were so perfect.

We truly had a magical vacation and didn't want the week to end.

I would highly recommend Summer In Italy!! I felt very confident knowing that they were there if I needed them.

We rented Villa Ermelinda with our 4 children, ages 18 to 11. It was amazing!! Way better than the pictures show it to be.

My kids and I all loved it and would stay there over and over again if we could.

The owner's family was there to help us with our luggage and anything we needed. We felt like part of the family. Don't change a thing, you were amazing and made our trip so special. Thank you!!

Working with Summer In Italy was awesome!!!
