From the main coastal road, 100 wide steps going downhill lead to Villa Guendalina. Its location, the stunning views and its outdoor living spaces on the panoramic terrace are some of the great characteristics that set this villa apart. Nestled in Positano center and set over two floors, this lovely villa highlights bright interiors and all the typical architectural features of the area such as white-washed walls, local hand-painted floor tiles, vaulted ceilings and arched panoramic windows. It doesn’t get better than this if you want to experience the real Amalfi Coast lifestyle. Are you as delighted for Villa Guendalina as we are?

What to do in Positano and the Amalfi area
A winding scenic drive along the coastal road, known for its hairpin bends and spectacular views, takes visitors to Positano, Praiano, Amalfi and the spellbinding uphill town of Ravello, with its incomparable belvedere. Any of these popular resort towns along the coast are good bases for exploring the surrounding areas. Buses and ferries run frequently and are the most convenient way to reach other towns while avoiding what could be a challenging drive in the bustling summer traffic. Other excursion possibilities include a boat trip to the islands of Capri and Ischia, a visit to the vibrant cities of Napoli, Salerno, or the gracious Sorrento, or an exploration of Pompeii and Herculaneum - the fascinating ruins of ancient cities destroyed by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in the 1st century A.D.
The Amalfi Coast offers an abundance of cafes, shops, art galleries and restaurants on its vertical terrain. Most beaches are small pebble inlets of land thus the best way to enjoy the sand and the turquoise water is to tour the area by boat (ask our concierge about it!) and let an expert local captain take you to his favorite spots or suggest the best seaside restaurants. A memorable experience!
