"Picture Perfect with Views over Positano." - Reviewed by Lisa

WIXXY PICK

“Falcons soaring overhead, Capri and the Li Galli Islands beckoning in the foreground, the quiet… And then there is the open-air gym! Who wouldn’t want to work out under the shade of an olive tree?”

An infinity pool hangs high above the Mediterranean in one of the world’s most sought-after areas with never-ending views out to the Li Galli islands. Positano and the Amalfi Coast stretch away to your left with one dramatic rocky headline after another. The world’s most-photographed colourful villages cascade down endless cliffs as if falling into the bluest of seas… Ho hum. This is the daily view from Posto di Falchi – a sumptuous retreat at the end of a road which is not only flanked by world-class vistas to the south but a totally-uninhabited, natural preserve to the north.

The peace and tranquility, the spectacular views and the heady, aromatic air almost take your breath away. You can’t help but stop… look… and take in the sheer beauty that surrounds. You are in a very special place.

This is a home in which to relax and get away from reality.

From here, you can treat yourself to day trips to some of the most coveted bucket list items in the northern hemisphere. Enjoy a scenic drive along the Amalfi Coast and wander through the enchanting hillside village of Positano, stop and explore the ruins of the historic city Pompeii, take a boat tour on the Mediterranean to the picturesque island of Capri and inhale the citric air… It’s all within a short drive/voyage away from this glorious home.

Located almost equidistantly between Positano and Sorrento, a sojourn north or south yields beauty and opportunities beyond bounds.

Despite the heady cosmopolitan neighbourhoods that flank it, Posto di Falchi is actually in the teeny-tiny village of Colli di Fontanelle – which is as pure Campania, Italy as you’re likely to find!

So, go ahead and invest your time and currency further afield during the day. Then come home to a private chef or the best pizza or local, home-cooked food takeaway you could ever want. And, at between 10-15 euros a meal, you’ll find yourself staying in more often than you think!

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

Bedrooms are classically modern with a light, airy ambiance and high ceilings. They boast beautifully-preserved, warm, hardwood parquet floors and a breezy, uncluttered – but tastefully composed – design motif.

The two bedrooms on the entryway level share a bathroom situated between the two rooms.

Bedrooms 1, 2 and 3 have outstanding sea and island views and access to patios. Bedroom 4 is no less grand in stature and size but lacks direct access to the exterior facilities.

Living Areas

Where does the living begin? You really start to “live” when you step out of the car and walk down the wisteria-covered stairway to the jaw-dropping views of the Galli Islands. With an infinite number of sunny days on the Amalfi Coast, chances are patios doors will be flung open allowing the sunshine and breezes to envelop every patio, terrace and living/dining space.

So many options! Where to begin? Start the day with a cup of coffee on the lower terrace while contemplating the remarkable ocean views.  Enjoy an al fresco breakfast on the spacious patio under a shady awning. What’s next? Maybe swing for a while in a hammock under a fig tree? Lounge about at the pool cabana with its flowery white curtains? Did I mention the massage cabana nestled in a grove of olive trees? Tough, really, to decide how best to “live” in this home!

If ever a rare episode of inclement weather should confine you to the cozy home, you can snuggle on the comfy sofas, light the fire, watch TV or relax in the Jacuzzi.

ENCHANTING EXTERIORS

The outside of this home deserves a special mention as guests will want to spend as much – if not more – time here than inside the home.  Multiple terraces cascade down towards the ocean – each with a sitting area, hammock or place to rest, relax or take a meal.

A large pool terrace with covered pergola makes the ideal place to while away the day. And the lovely infinity pool is the ideal place to cool off and marvel at the beauty that surrounds.

  • Additional terraces with dining tables
