Posto di Falchi
"Picture Perfect with Views over Positano." - Reviewed by Lisa
“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!
