“Excellent views in the heart of Positano”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Casa Carolina offers superb views across the bay and towards the mountain range. This Villa offers a real life experience for those visitors wishing to eat and drink with the locals; buy fresh produce and practice your Italian at the local mini supermarkets. The Villa has been furnished to a high standard; the dining room dates back 300 years and has been lovingly restored to represent the old style kitchen oven and eating facilities.

The present day kitchen includes all utensils and cookware you will need to cook an array of dishes; we requested more items and the owners, Carlo and Carla we extremely helpful to all our needs which enabled us to enjoy our culinary cooking skills to 'Cook with Love' and eat, drink and be truly happy in what can only be described as A Home from Home experience.

Casa Carolina has two main bedrooms which are separated from one another; so as either couples or two families sharing you never feel you are imposing on anyone else privacy.
The bedroom with the balcony is large with great views and has a twin room with parting door but our favourite and the bedroom we stayed in is up a small set of stairs and was awesome. A very large bathroom/ shower with his and hers sinks a few feet from our bedroom so felt like en-suite. Our bedroom was a lot cooler than our families one whose room had been heated by the sun all day, quite a big compromise in the summer temperatures. As well the adjoining room doubles as living quarters with sofa bed, furnishings, television and shower room which leads through to the upstairs terrace, another great opportunity to relax on comfy loungers and views across the bay.

We found nearly all the locals friendly and welcomed our attempts at speaking Italian..

Please be aware you will need good walking shoes and if at the start of you holiday you are not physically fit you soon will be by the end! Several steps to climb but well worth the experience. We were passed on the steps many times by locals much older and wiser, it helps to pace yourself.

This Villa is a must for anyone wanting to see the heart of Positano.

We can't wait to come back.

Thank you Carlo & Carla
