An ancient town built into startlingly steep cliffs overlooking a small curved bay and the bright blue waters of the Tyrrhenian sea. Filled with more stairs than streets, Positano has a proud seafaring tradition and has long been a destination for those seeking solitude and something a little different.

The residents are full of life and fiercely protective of their fine heritage and have together created a place whose experience is far greater than the sum of its parts and whose global renown exceeds its relatively small stature.

The Amalfi Coast

The Amalfi Coast is famed throughout the world for its beguiling combination of extraordinary natural beauty and dramatic terrain. The lush coastal mountains plunging into the dazzling blue sea provide a stunning backdrop for the incredible history that has played out among the vertical tapestry of cliffside towns and winding roads that sweep through thick Mediterranean forests.

Coastal Gems

Positano and Amalfi are the most graceful of the signature coastal towns that have inspired so many artists and writers, poets and lovers over the years. Ravello with its impressive villas and the ports of Sorrento and Salerno all add to the rich heritage of this wonderful region.

Some of the best hiking in all of Italy can be found along this breathtaking landscape dotted with endless places of historic interest, superb restaurants, cafes and all manner of boutiques and galleries.

Our Favourite Spots

We enjoy exploring our area as much as anyone and we have put together a small list of places we love to visit. This is not exhaustive and is something to which we will continue to add.

A place not appearing on this list does not mean it is not worth visiting by any means, we simply had to start somewhere.
