Positano romantic retreat with sea views - Nestled on a cliffside on the edge of Positano, overlooking a magnificent vista of rocky cliffs plunging into the cobalt-blue sea, this charming, air-conditioned villa for two is ideal for couples dreaming of a holiday in one of Italy's most romantic destinations on the Amalfi Coast; a funicular lift nearby allows to reach a pretty pebble beach with sunbathing facilities and a small cafe, whereas a minimarket is conveniently located within short distance of the villa, delivering your shopping on request right to your doorstep.
Il Pellicano is light and airy, each room affording unrivalled views over the Mediterranean sea and the entire Bay of Positano. From the large private terrace you will enjoy spectacular sunsets over the sea perfectly complementing your dinners al fresco accompanied by a glass of icy-cold Limoncello. It is ideal for honeymooners and explorers alike, whether the aim is just to relax and enjoy the immediate surroundings, or to venture out and explore the region as a whole.
A wide selection of restaurants, shops and bars is on offer in the enchanting whitewashed town of Positano, as well as in Amalfi and Ravello, all very special places well worth visiting. The entire coastline stretching from the Gulf of Naples to the Gulf of Salerno is a unique scenic area and a UNESCO World Heritage site. To discover its hidden beauty you may choose to drive along the winding scenic route or hire a boat to reach the islands of Ischia and Capri just in time for lunch in the famous Piazzetta or a visit to the mesmerizing Grotta Azzurra. Further north, but still within easy drive of Positano, are also the unique archaeological sites of Pompei and Herculaneum set against the remarkable backdrop of Mount Vesuvius. Whether day or night, the charm of the Amalfi coast will win you over, leaving everlasting memories to take home and the desire to come back!
