Review 488: Casa Maresca, Apartment


Review by daka from FL who is a SlowTrav Contributor

apartments in Positano, Campania


May 2002


We enjoyed this rental, it is at the top of the town and fairly quiet. Nice restaurants very near by. Great view and lovely hosts.

Casa Maresca is a small privately owned property (Paul and Luccia) located at the north end of the town of Positano overlooking the sea. The house can be set up many different ways. We were travelling with another couple and had a 2 bedroom 2 bath with a full kitchen. The owners who speak english are on the property to answer all your questions, give suggestions about where to go and where to eat. They are very helpful! You are able to walk anywhere in Positano within 15 minutes.

The rental itself is very nice, reasonable and I would call it a "high 2 star" (ymmv) it certainly was very comfortable and we had a great view from our private terrace where we had our afternoon wine.

We enjoyed Positano and found it to be not as crowded as the other towns, especially Amalfi, as tour busses cannot enter the town. You can use the local busses or taxis to get to the other towns. We hired a driver to take us to Pompeii and spent the rest of that day seeing the other local towns (email: marcellomaresca@tin.it).

Don't miss dinner at Il Ritrovo, It is way above the town they will pick you up, have Paul make the reservation for you.

If I were to go back to Amalfi area I would stay there again.
