Positano villa with sea views - Perched on a cliffside in an exclusive private domaine, this pretty villa with air conditioning is set in a wonderful Mediterranean garden of hibiscus, agavi and maritime pine trees enjoying stunning views across the bay of Positano.  From the villa, a funicular lift takes you down to a pebble beach with a fabulous beach club and restaurant.  A 5 minute walk brings you to the nearest restaurant, and within a short distance is also a convenient minimarket delivering groceries directly to your doorstep, on request.  

The interior of Il Gabbiano is small yet tastefully furnished and decorated in typical Mediterranean style, using blue ceramic tiles against cool white walls. Sunlight and a gentle maritime breeze flow through the French doors into the open-plan living area. There is a splendid, large terrace; the perfect spot from which to enjoy the spectacular panorama. 

This is an ideal location for exploring the Amalfi Coast, both by boat and by car.  You will find plenty of restaurants, shops and bars in buzzing Positano close by, but don't miss out on a visit to Amalfi or to Ravello, both of which are also very special places. One of the best ways to discover the stunning beauty of the Amalfi coast is from the sea itself. Boat trips are available to the islands of Capri or Ischia, as well as to other places on the coast. You can even charter your own boat for the day and discover your very own little cove! There are plenty of places to visit for the day, such as Pompei or Herculaneum, or Mount Vesuvius where you can climb up to the crater and admire the views over the Bay of Naples. Both by day and by night the Amalfi coast boasts an incredible and irresistible charm!
