Casa Caterina is a house of 50 square meters (550
square feet) with a garden of 40 square meters (440 square feet) from where you
can enjoy a beautiful view of the sea and Positano. The house is air-conditioned
and is suitable for three people.
The house is situated in the centre of Positano and you
reach it by using a characteristic 60-step stairway that goes down from the main
street. The house is built in a style that is typical to Positano.
Once past the white wall and the wrought iron gate, which
separates the house from the road, you will realise that you have arrived in a
corner of paradise.
First, you enter into a delightful garden full of citrus
trees. Their shiny leaves frame a fragment of the magical panorama of the sea,
which includes a view of a group of small islands called “Li Galli.” A pretty
lemon pergola shades the front of the house; under it, ready to welcome you, are
two characteristic benches, a table and chairs, and sun beds.
The air is divinely lemon scented – this, along with the
abundance of nature all around, creates an atmosphere of vitality and joy. You
will feel happy to be exactly in this place and to have this magic in front of
your eyes for the whole length of your holiday, and to hold it in your heart
There are two French Doors that allow you to enter
directly from the garden into the sitting room and bedroom. The sitting room has
a kitchen area, a sofa, a T.V. and a table and chairs. The kitchen area is equipped
with a cooker, an oven and a fridge/freezer. The bedroom contains a double bed, and
the bathroom has a shower. An additional bed to sleep one guest can be placed in the living room, if requested. From the house you have a garden view. The house is
furnished in a simple yet functional way. The house is an annexe of a small,
appealing hotel, and you can take advantage of the hotel facilities for
breakfast and other bar services. The garden is not entirely private as it is occasionally briskly crossed by the occupants of an adjacent apartment.
Shops and restaurants can be found within 50 meters (165
feet) from the house. Also at 50 meters (165 feet) there is a bus stop for local
transport to the pedestrian precinct and also for the bus that goes to the other
towns on the coast. You can also reach the Spiagga Grande, which is the main
beach of Positano, from the Pedestrian Precinct.
A car is not necessary for your stay in Casa Caterina.
From the quay in Positano you can catch a ferry or a small
cruiser to visit the islands of Capri and Ischia or the mainland towns of
Amalfi, Sorrento and Naples.
The national bus service, SITA, links you via road to all the coastal towns and
it is easy to reach Pompeii, Ercolano (Herculaneum), Paestum and the Palace of
For those who love mountain walking it is easy to reach,

extraordinary beauty, as “il Sentiero degli Dei” (The Pathway of the Gods).
