Casa Rocca

Sleeps up to 6, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, lovely views
Ideally positioned in the Fornillo area of Positano, high enough to enjoy views, yet at a short distance from one of the nicest beaches, this villa in Positano is a much loved and very charming 18th century family home, full of character and memories.
The entrance door hides a terrace with a lemon grove which runs along the ground floor rooms. One level up is a large paved terrace, a real garden of delight adorned with classic style columns supporting a thick and vibrant bougaivillea and wisteria pergola. Large terracotta pots hold mature jasmine, palms and colourful geraniums, with views of Positano, the village of Fornillo and its ''presepe'' completing the picture of this historical house.
Note re access22 Steps from road level to entrance or 25 internal steps from garage leading directly into the house
