Sora Maria is part of an old 17th century villa in a beautiful part of Positano coveted for its location directly overlooking the sea. This vacation home rental is especially desired for its terrace with spectacular views, new and modern décor, spaciousness and proximity to the lively center of Positano.
From the main street which runs through Positano, the villa is accessed via a staircase of about 75 steps. The property is centrally located, the closest fruit and grocery stores, as well as several cafes and restaurants are at the bottom of the steps that lead to the villa. The closest beach is the main in Positano, Spiaggia Grande. It can only be reached on foot in 5-6 minutes by following a colorful downhill alley closed to traffic, with shops and boutiques, which will take you to the beach (about 600 meters away). From the port in Positano, adjacent to the Spiaggia Grande, you can take the ferries and hydrofoils to Capri (30 min), Naples (50 min), Amalfi (30 min) and Salerno (1.5 hr). Services are most frequent from May to September. The other villages of the coast are easily reached by blue buses marked SITA. The nearest SITA bus stop is a 10-15 minute walk from the villa. In addition to the big SITA busses, there is a little commuter bus that takes you around Positano and which stops on the street below the villa. These busses run every 20 minutes or so in high season (May-September).
While a car is not necessary, a parking space is provided in a private parking lot, about a 5-minute walk from the property, and should be booked in advance (cost is about €20 per day per car).
The spacious interiors have high vaulted ceilings and thick stone walls, which is characteristic of the ancient buildings of the Amalfi Coast. The recent renovation made with special care, has transformed it into a very pleasant holiday rental offering a high level of privacy and a warm and familiar atmosphere. The interiors of the villa rental are light, airy and immaculate.
