We loved our stay at Villa Carinzia, and hope to return. The views are breathtaking and it's really big! Our group was 3 couples and a single - we each had our own bedroom and bathroom, with one of each to spare.
The beds were comfortable and linens nice. Not all rooms have showers, but plenty of them do. The kitchen was easy to use, and the chef we brought in one night liked it a lot. We liked the common spaces and were also able to have our own space if we wanted.
The terrace and garden are wonderful to hang out in - better than most restaurants. Coffee every morning on the terrace looking over the bay of Positano and the Carinzia gardens was a special part of our trip.
Pictures on the SummerInItaly site are accurate - it's a beautifully decorated place with space for all.
Management is terrific. During the many months between booking and vacation, "Summer in Italy" was always quick to respond with answers and helpful suggestions. They have a safe, secure payment system for credit card booking and full payment. Once we arrived, Enzo, the property manager availed himself to us and was helpful in getting us what we needed. Also, friendly Rosie came every day to clean' she was so cheery, took great care of us and keeps the house perfect.
Having the clothes washer was nice (something I wouldn't normally say on vacation) as we were all going on to a week + more of travel, and clean clothes was nice. If it's summer, make sure to pay for the A/C - the bedrooms stay nice and cold with it, and you'll want it! Refrigerator is big and there are lots of matched dishes and glasses.
We'd walk into town to shop, eat or catch a boat, then take a bus back uphill.
It was so hard to leave at week's end. I highly recommend Villa Carinzia (and Summer In Italy) with it's fabulous views - it's lovely!
