Wonderful, and serine. Casa Oltremare is located just off the main highway, and about 1500 ft above the ocean. Owners Gerardo and Lucia warmly greeted us at the villa and were kind enough to purchase some food for us since it was Sunday and the market was closed. They are truly lovely people. The house is beautiful, tastefully decorated with large rooms, 5 of which have views of the sea. We woke up every morning to the sound of birds singing. We never heard the highway traffic or saw anyone residing in the other houses on this large property that was built in the 1700's and is owned by several family members. The villa is walking distance to a family owned restaurant,two markets, one "bar" that's really a pastry and sandwich shop, and tabacci store that sells everything from flashlights to bus tickets, and most importantly, the buses that can take you to the nearby towns and around Positano. We rented a car but only used it to tour nearby Pompei, otherwise it sat unused and parking is almost impossible. The one blemish, which I'm hoping has been resolved as I write this, was the lack of sufficient wi-fi service and if this is an issue for you, you should check to insure it has been updated before you book. The house is fantastic, but for the price you should not have to go to a nearby restaurant just to download your email. It seemed the wi-fi provided was part of the owners cell phone plan, so there was a small device with a SIM card inserted and a limited amount of data provided. Once we exceeded the amount (we have teenagers so it didn't take long) we started receiving vodaphone offers to increase the data on our smartphones in Italian (?!). We didn't understand any of what was happening and told the owners several times the wi-fi was down. We could we have reloaded the SIM card had the situation been explained. We LOVED the house, and will chalk this up to a literal communication breakdown. This doesn't effect our enthusiasm for this magical place in any way. We didn't want to leave.
