    From the main coastal road, there are approximately 130 steps leading to Villa Gentile's entrance. Once inside the gate, an enormous and spectacular terrace with plants and flowers welcomes you to the villa. As you look out, you'll catch your breath at the magnificent sea and coastal views.

    Inside, Villa Gentile is fresh and elegantly furnished creating a warm, inviting atmosphere. There is central heating and log fireplaces so you will be warm in winter. There is also a satellite TV and telephone. On this floor, you will find a lounge area with lots of comfortable chairs and a sofa. From the lounge, there are French doors leading onto the patio.

    Leading through an archway from the lounge, is a small indoor dining area with a table for 4 guests and chairs. From this dining area, there are also French doors leading to the patio.

    The large, well-equipped kitchen has a small table and chairs, 2 electric ovens, a grill, 6 gas hobs, a dishwasher, a fridge/freezer, a microwave, a kettle, a blender, a juicer, a double sink, washing machine and a high window.

    On the same level, off the patio, is a double bedroom with a window, air conditioning and an ensuite bathroom. The bathroom has a sink, bidet, toilet and a bath with a shower head.

    On the ground floor, you will also find another bedroom with 2 single beds, a chair, desk, air conditioning and a window. This bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with a shower, toilet, sink and bidet.

    There is also a separate bathroom on this floor which has a shower so you can use this if you are by the pool.

    From the lounge, there is an internal staircase which leads to the second floor of Villa Gentile.  Here you will find two double bedrooms and two bathrooms. The bedrooms are very spacious and are fully equipped with a queen size double bed, a fire place, air conditioning, a window and access via French doors onto a balcony/terrace with breathtaking views.  The terrace is furnished with tables, chairs and sun loungers. Both bathrooms have a sink, toilet, bidet, window, separate shower and a bathtub with a shower head.

    The patio has a covered dining area and is furnished with a dining table and chairs. It is like an outdoor dining room where you can dine 'al fresco' whilst admiring the wonderful views as the sun sets over the sea.  

    Villa Gentile has a beautiful pool (10x5 metres and open from the end of April to mid October) and is located at the end of the patio. Here you will also find sun loungers and sun parasols so you can relax by the pool whish enjoying the stunning views.  There is also a covered area with chairs if you wish to sit and chat whilst taking a break from the heat of the summer sun.

    By climbing a further 120 steps down from Villa Gentile, you can access the public beach. It is perfect as there is no need to worry about taking your car and trying to find a parking space. 

    Villa Gentie's prestigious position, in the small town of Arienzo, means that it offers spectacular, panoramic views across the sweeping bay of  Positano and towards Punta Campanella in peace and tranquility but it is only 1.5km from the centre of Positano. Here, you will find excellent restaurants, elegant shops, delightful cafes and sandy beaches.  Approximately 20 metres along the coastal road from the steps to the villa, is the bus stop. From here, you can catch a bus to Amalfi or Sorrento. From Sorrento, you can take a train to Pompeii and Naples.

    A gardener will tend to the garden and the pool for you twice a week during your stay.  Maid service of 6 hours a day for 6 days a week is included.

    You do not need a car to stay at Villa Gentile and we recommend NOT having one. However, if you do, you can park it along the main coastal road. In the height of summer (June to September), the road will be busy so you may not find a space for about 1/1.5km away from the steps down to the villa. Once you have found a space, we recommend that you don't move your car from there but use local buses and/or taxis to get around.
