Wonderful- perfectly located

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing stay in the perfectly located home! The house is located right on a main road, which if you have been to Positano before you know how rare and important this is. Some homes may be 300 large steps up or down, but the front door of this house is located right off the main road.

Great restaurants and shops right across the street, and a grocery store just a short 5 minute walk on the same road.

4 great size bedrooms with private bathrooms and two beautiful balcony patios with STUNNING views! Large kitchen and living room. The house would be great for multiple families too since there is a SECOND kitchen downstairs with 2 of the bedrooms.

We are already in contact with the owners to book the house for a longer stay next summer.

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from a month of travel and a week was in Positano. Villa Centaura is fabulous. The property is large, we were a party of 7 and everyone had plenty of space. The kitchen has everything you need to cook, the bathrooms are clean and nice. The sheets and towels are that of a home not a hotel.

Villa Centaura takes you away from the busy hustle of Positano. It's peaceful and easy to relax in. The bonus is that it enters on the street, its accessibility is excellent and its walk ability to the beach is good (about 10-12 min walk to the Spiaggia Grande di Positano, in town).

We, as a group, loved it and would return given the opportunity.

I felt we had great service from Summer In Italy.

Villa Centaura was without a doubt the best place I ever rented for a vacation

  • 5 of 5

Villa Centaura was without a doubt the best place I ever rented for a vacation.

The view was incredible. The location could not be beat. It was just above the fray, but close enough to walk to everything, either by the winding street or by the stairs. But even better --- most of the best restaurants were right nearby.

The place is HUGE. There are four bedrooms. Three of them are big enough for couples. One is small for one. The terraces are amazing.

The owners are so kind and the manager of the property was easy to communicate with. They even recommended a taxi driver which was very helpful.

Summer In Italy was highly recommended by many of our friends. Your attention to detail and communication skills were excellent. It was an amazing vacation and an amazing villa.

We had an absolute ball at Villa Centaura

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolute ball at Villa Centaura! The villa was clean, in a fantastic location in Positano and had amazing views!

Villa Centaura was even better than the photos and completely blew our expectations. We had a group of 6-7 stay comfortably, each room had its own bathroom so it was nice to stay together but still have privacy.

We would thoroughly recommend anyone looking for accommodation to stay here. We loved Villa Centaura and can't wait to come back!

We found Summer In Italy on the net, thank goodness for that! Our whole experience was fantastic. The pre-arrivals directions and advice was particularly helpful. We will definitely recommend Summer In Italy to our friends, family and hopefully we have the opportunity to use this site again soonI
