Carrington Italia, the only luxury villa specialists with a local office in the heart of Positano, has added a new property — Casa del Fico — to its collection of exclusive rental homes on Italy’s famed Amalfi Coast.
“The Amalfi Coast is one of the world’s most popular vacation destinations, and private villa rentals in Positano and nearby towns along the Amalfi Coast are in great demand,” says Erin Romano of Carrington Italia. “The most requested properties often book as much as a year in advance. Having exclusive villas in our portfolio allows us to give our guests personal service and truly customize their visits.”
Casa del Fico is a tranquil retreat in Positano’s Fornillo neighborhood, a short distance from the town center, with accommodations for up to seven people. The beautifully updated villa, with authentic architectural features, offers stunning sea views, lush gardens and a terrace for outdoor lounging and dining. It boasts a traditional Italian kitchen, comfortable living area, brightly decorated bedrooms and beautifully appointed en suite bathrooms featuring handcrafted Italian tiles.
According to Romano, villas offer numerous benefits and creature comforts for families, couples and groups, while also providing a one-of-a-kind travel experience and the opportunity to live like a local.
Casa del Fico is accessible from the street via very few steps, which Romano says is a rare find in the vertical town of Positano. A pleasant and leisurely 20-minute stroll along Via Pasitea will bring guests down into the town center and Positano’s main beach, passing boutiques, restaurants and shops along the way. The local bus stop is conveniently located within a minute’s walk, with service every 30 minutes.

Romano says Carrington Italia’s villa rentals are almost fully booked for the 2018 season, but there are a few available dates left for several of their highly desirable properties.

Guests of Casa Fiori have access to the large community pool on the property.

The interior features vaulted ceilings and archways and modern, elegant appointments throughout. Villa Gaia is one of only a few properties that enjoy a privileged position overlooking the sea and town with a minimal number of steps leading down to its entrance from the street. Located in a quaint neighborhood at the top of Positano, the town center and main beach can be reached within a 15 to 20-minute leisurely walk down a combined series of neighborhood stone steps and pathways. Mere steps away from Villa Gaia are charming restaurants, shops, mini-markets and a local bar. For details visit https://www.carringtonitalia.com/property/detail/241.

“The tourist season extends into early November on the Amalfi Coast, and visitors who want a more tranquil vacation and to avoid the summer crowds often visit during this shoulder season,” says Romano. “But even in later months our villas are in high demand, so we encourage guests to begin planning as early as possible.”
