Some of our group of 8 were a little worried about the cost of the Villa, but as soon as we arrived everyone was happy. We were a little disorganised and rang Emma Villas about the keys, but before they rang back the owner arrived (He had been keeping watch) and opened up and showed us around. Beautiful Villa, great views. Worth every cent and more. Good location for bus stop heading towards Amalfi and a mini mart within walking distance.

“Fabulous Views”

We were a group of 4 friends so we rented both villas for a week in September. The downstairs villa was the bigger apartment with two large bedrooms and two bathrooms, a large eat in kitchen, dining room and lounge room. We spent most of the time on the balcony as the views were just gorgeous across the valley and the water, the top villa had the better view as it was more elevated. The villas are well equipped and we ate in a number of nights. We were able to do washing and hang on drying racks on the balconies. The balconies have lots of potted plants which the owner Giovanni asks guests to water as they dry out in the heat of the day. The villa is nestled in the hills of Positano with 110 stairs from the bottom road to the top villa or 45 stairs from the top villa to the car park which is on the top road. There is quite a lot of noise especially at night and the top villa appeared to get more noise, it is just the village coming alive in the morning but at night it is from noisy tourists making their way up the hill to their accommodation, it can be muffled by closing the doors and shutters. The villa is close to the town and easily walked by either going down all the stairs or walking around the road, we chose the stairs and our legs are better for it!
The villas are well secured with all double locked gates and the doors to the villa are triple locked. There is a car park level which has access to the road and a short walk to a local shop that has the essentials and a wine selection.
We enjoyed our evenings out on the balconies and the evening view and would recommend this villa for a week or more stay in Positano.

“Fantastic Stay”

Villa Talamo was an amazing place to stay. Giovanni the owner met us at the door and toured us around the house. There were 8 (4 couples) so we took both 2 bedroom apartments one on top of the other. It worked out beautifully as each couple had a bathroom. There was a washing machine in each apartment and you could easily hang your clothing out to dry during the day. Opening the doors up gives you fresh air and sunshine. The decor is traditionally Italian which was perfect for our visit. The view is positively breathtaking. The walk into town is about 5 minutes down. Giovanni and his sister own a restaurant nearby. If you ask him and make a reservation he'll pick you up and drop you off and treat you like a star. The food was amazing, home made, truly Italian and delicious. We ate there twice during our 7 day stay.

We stayed in the upper level apartment (B) in Villa Talamo for a week in May. The setting could not be better! The apartment is spread out so that the living area and both bedrooms enjoy spectacular views over Positano. This is a spacious traditional Italian property that exudes charm. It has two good sized bedrooms and two bathrooms, though they are not ensuite. We spent a lot of time on the terrace when we were not out sightseeing etc . It has the MOST AMAZING views.
We enjoyed the apartment so much that we stayed in every night bar one. We made friends with the local grocers up the road and with the butcher down in the heart of town so cooked up simple yet delicious meals which we enjoyed while enjoying the vista and local wines etc!!
The only night we ate out was at the owner Giovanni's restaurant Al Barilotto del Nonno which was a truly memorable evening.
As well as being in a great location the property has parking which is as rare as hens teeth in Positano. We loved it all!

Description does not do justice. Excellent location and villa. Rented with my family both upstairs unit and downstairs units. Older kids stayed upstairs, separated entrance. Beautiful views from every direction!
