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 villa in 1964

Why Massimo Predieri chose Amalfi Coast

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 villa 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 villa with stunning view

  • 5 of 5

We had the best vacation ever in this huge villa with the enormous terass where we basically spent our whole vacation on! We had everything we needed really, and John was extremely helpful with all our concern and made us feel like home.

We're definitely going to stay at Don Giovanni again!

Thank you so much.

Owner's Response: Many of our guests are so delighted with the terrace that they spend most of they stay on it, enjoying the view on Positano and the sea while tasting the celebrated Neapolitan food specialities and wines. Casa San Matteo has doubtless the most beautiful view on Positano and we, our housekeeper John and myself, take all efforts to make your stay as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. Check our availability calendar for your next holiday in Casa San Matteo – Positano. We offer arrangements for 2 up to 12 guests all over the year.

Into the real Positano atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

I have spent the New Year’s holidays in the apartment Don Giovanni – Casa San Matteo from December 30 to January 4th. I was with my husband, our three teenage daughters and a two friends, a party of 7. We had plenty of room and could easily have another two people with us because of the generous layout of the villa. Everything was perfectly clean and well maintained, we greatly enjoyed the beautiful and huge terrace, from where we assisted to the unbelievable new year’s fireworks. In the large kitchen we prepared our new year’s dinner for 11 people, which was served in the large dining area, all comfortably seated. It was my second time in Casa San Matteo, the first was in July during the summer season, and we will certainly come back again in this splendid and comfortable villa. Highly recommend.

I really appreciate Giovanni and Marco for they professional and kind assistance any time we have been requested, giving us the best advise for Restaurants, outing, shopping, and spending some time with us telling charming stories about the Amalfi coast.

Great experience.

Amazing place with the best views

  • 5 of 5

Casa San Matteo a 17th century villa has the most amazing views from its balconies. Ten of us hired the villa for two weeks and with the aid of Marco we had an amazing time. We took the tours Marco suggested and one of the highlights was the boat trip to the Isle of Capri which he organised for us. The Villa was spacious with modern amenities and balconies with views of Positano. The only downside is the amount of steps but then it did keep us fit. The restaurants were close and so were the shops. The villa is close to the bus also. Great place and great people.

Beautiful and comfortable flats (Tosca and Carmen)

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Tosca and Carmen not in Don Giovanni). The location is fantastic. 180 times 180 degrees view from the terrace. Very quiet and private location. The flats are very comfortable and spacey. The housekeeper, John, is extremely helpful. Parking in Positano is an issue. We used a guarded parking space 500 metres down the road. From the road there is approximately 100 steps down to reach the flats. To reach the beach it is 5-600 steps but if you use the internal Positano bus it is 150-200. So you have to be in OK shape. We had 2 children aged 3 and 6 years and that worked fine.

Owner's Response: We are filled with pride to have once again hosted satisfied and happy guests from abroad. The main reason for our success is of course the beauty of the villa and the breathtaking panorama in Positano. Nevertheless we have learned in many years of experience how important is a friendly and helpful approach to our guest. We want you to enjoy a relaxed and beautiful holiday, knowing you are looked after for all your needs.

Positano
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.
