This handsome, stone villa has much to offer; beautiful views, lots of terrace space, high quality décor, and location. Comprised of two independent units: one sleeps 6 and one sleeps 5. Taken together there is more than enough space for 11.
Now with Pool!
La Pietra is a large stone villa comprised of 2 units, the "Upper Level" and "Lower Level", plus a lovely, shared rooftop terrace. The units are completely private and have separate entrances. The "Upper Level" which is more like a "villa" within a villa, sleeps 6. The "Lower Level" sleeps 5.
When rented together you have a great property with more than enough space and comfort for 11 guests - something that is a rarity in a prime location on the Amalfi Coast.
From the road it is necessary to walk up 30 - 45 steps to the entrances. Even though it is perched on a rocky cliffside the building is attractively landscaped with trees and vines and decorative stone terraces. All easily accessible and user-friendly.
The villa is about 1 Km east of the center of Positano on a stretch of the Amalfi Drive passing through Arienzo, an upscale, residential enclave overlooking the beach of the same name. The local bus takes you into town in 5 minutes or it is possible to walk the distance in about 20 minutes. The Arienzo beach is 200 steps below and has a concession that rents umbrellas and sunchairs in summer.

Upper Level — is like a "villa" within a villa. It is an especially attractive place distinguished by a huge living / dining area, a wonderful space to get together after a day enjoying the Amalfi Coast.
Since the villa itself is built into the rock behind it the owner has left some of the interior stone walls exposed to create a pleasing and unique effect. The furnishings are all high quality with some heirloom antiques that add a traditional touch.
The Upper Level is very large and is itself two floors. The main floor has the huge living/dining area with a banquette, 2 large sofas, dining table for 6, and a charming sitting area with a chess set. Glass doors open to a small panoramic balcony.
There is a pretty kitchen, well designed for cooking and with all new appliances. Next to the kitchen is one of the 2 bathrooms, especially large and beautiful with a white marble countertop.
Up a flight of polished granite steps to the 2nd floor are the 3 bedrooms. The 2 corner bedrooms open onto a huge private terrace with sea views and with lots of outdoor furniture for lounging or eating al fresco. Also upstairs is a second kitchen set up for preparing breakfast and light meals. The second bathroom is a whimsical affair with the tub partially surrounded by the natural stone wall.
