Our three holiday apartments are set in a magnificent, historical, privately-owned villa build in the 18th Century and carefully renovated. It is situated in the heart of Positano, in 10 minutes walking distance to the pedestrian village centre. The terraces offer one of the most beautiful views over the sea and the village. The site, surrounded by orchards and gardens, assures a quiet and relaxing stay. The extraordinarily thick walls keep the interior pleasantly cool during the summertime. We offer arrangements from 2 to 18 persons with all required comforts and facilities, including daily guest assistance and housekeeping service. Our personnel speaks English, French, German and Italian.

A regular bus service is available every 20 minutes. The bus stops at the top of Via Monte. It is possible to reach most places in Positano, including the beach, in a ten to fifteen minutes walk.

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 manager

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)

Fantastic experience!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week long stay at the Tosca apartment in Positano! The apartment is very clean and it had all of the amenities that we needed to enjoy our stay. The location is wonderful and the views from the balcony are breathtaking!! We really enjoyed meeting John, the housekeeper! He went out of his way to make dinner reservations, taxi reservations, etc. He looked after us extremely well and we would not have enjoyed our stay as well as we did if not for John!!

Our stay in Positano was just wonderful, we enjoyed every moment of it and much thanks to John who looked after us so well, and was so helpful with his knowledge of the area. This apartment is spotless and a wonderful place to base yourself to see surounding areas (Sorrento, Capri and Amalfi are easily reached by ferry). The views are just breathtaking and you can just while away the hours taking it all in!!! Highly recommended!!

Owner's Response: We are pleased to be able to improve every year our offer in Casa San Matteo, although we well know that the magic is due to beautiful Positano and is wonderful surroundings. Having an English mother tongue (and very helpful) manager since this year was greatly appreciated by many of our guests from oversees.

This appartment is full of charm and charcter and catches sun on the balcony in the morning and provides wonderful views in the evening.

The accomodation was immaculate and well equiped and the housekeeper helpful but unobtrusive.

Those renting have the option of the challenging steps down to the town or making use of the frequent bus service nearby.

All in all great base for both Positano and the entire Amalfi coast

Once again thank you for a wonderful holiday in your great villa. This time we came back with 6 friends from Australia who have now fallen in love with the villa and Positano. They all agreed that the villa was well equipped, spacious and clean and the view from the terrace was spectacular.

We look forward to once again returning.Thank you again

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.
