Villa Splendore is one of the holiday homes available in a small complex. The complex is made up of four holiday homes which extend across a few acres of coastline. Each villa is completely independent and has its own access. As the properties are built into the cliff terraces, they are located at varying heights so may be slightly overlooked by other holiday homes. There are two of these homes above Villa Splendore. Access to this entire area is reserved for the holiday home guests only. The complex has various communal services available, in particular a lift that will take you from the coastal road to just a few metres from the villas. The lift will also transport you between the different villas and the beach. The beach is private and shared with the other guests of the complex only. Also, you'll have an area of the beach exclusively for you and your guests. The area is equipped with sun umbrellas and deck chairs. These facilities are available from the beginning of May until mid-October.

Jayne (Villa Splendore)
Wonderful stay in Positano!

We had a spectacular week at Villa Splendore. There were two families (children ages 10-13) and the villa worked out perfectly for us. The 4 bedrooms / 3 bathrooms and common area were just the right size and had all the amenities we needed. We spent most of our time outside or strolling / boating around. The pool was a big plus for the kids and the ample patio and loungers were ideal for the adults. The views are just spectacular. What a lovely setting. As other reviewers have commented, there were several steps getting from the funicular to the elevator that takes you to the beach, but for our group that was no problem. In a place such as Positano, it's expected and if you have mobility issues, it could be a concern to get about in this area. The kitchen was well appointed with all the dishes, utensils, pots and pans, refrigerator room, and cooking appliances we needed. We had to ask for the fresh towels (we were under the impression that the linen service would happen automatically so do ask if you need a fresh set). The booking process was very easy and we felt very well taken care of by Naples Villas and the property manager who met us at check-in. The only issues we had were (1) the wifi was spotty at best. I'm not sure if that was a function of the villa's technology or Positano in general; and (2) though it's a short distance into town, it's quite a walk up and down many stairs or a pretty expensive cab / water taxi ride. For our group of 8, it would cost us 40 to 50 euro per trip ... the water taxi took about 2 minutes so the cost seemed awfully steep. Taking the public bus would have been much cheaper I'm sure but we opted for the convenience of the taxi. But just something to be aware of. Overall, wonderful stay and we'd love to visit again!

"Fantastic villa with a ten million dollar view"

More than what we hoped for in terms of space and accommodations. Great booking service with Alfonso, always answered questions immediately when emailed. There are a lot of steps to get down to the funicular, one of our group had knee issues, so it was a bit challenging, however it was worth the work when you stepped onto the patio and saw the town of Positano to the left and the sea all around you, nothing less than spectacular. There are pamphlets and schedules,taxi telephone numbers available for assistance, but we found them tucked away in a magazine rack-would be better left out in a visible location, they will make your stay easier when you can get in/out of town and enjoy the ferries to. Capri etc. We highly recommend this location for a beautiful holiday that you will not forget.

"Great for families"

The views were fantastic and the Villa was great for our family of four. We had access to the private beach via the funicular which our children really enjoyed. Our Villa was clean, comfortable and our stay here was delightful.
