Going to Positano in late spring, staying in a small hotel perched on the hill and having my coffee in the morning on a balcony overlooking this incredible little coastal town was a dream I'd had for quite a while. Villa Gabrisa fulfilled this dream. And offered more than I'd hoped for.
We stayed in Villa Gabrisa four days. The room was huge (something rarely found in Italy), charming, with a rustic feel. There was a small balcony with picture-perfect views of the town and the sea. The breakfast was continental but perfectly adequate - ham, cheese, fruits, pastries, boiled eggs, juices... The night we arrived we were tired and decided to have dinner at the hotel restaurant. We were so glad we did! That first night at dinner we met Gabriele, after whom the hotel is named, Leyla and their gregarious friends. 20 minutes later we had everything organised for the next day - a cooking class with Gabriele and a tour around Positano with one of his friends - a professional guide - and we were cheering ourselves with chocolate Venchi prosecco! We had dinner at the hotel every night except one. The food was great, the wines Gabriele suggested were amazing - many of them from his own private selection, and Leyla's company and sense of humour - the highlight of our evenings! Occasionally we asked for things not on the menu, and Gabriele and Leyla would go the extra mile to accommodate us. We were taken care of splendidly!
This is not home away from home. This is way better. Villa Gabrisa made my dream come true. And fulfilled whims and wishes I didn't even know existed.
