My wife and I have been visiting Positano for many years and have mainly stayed at Le Agavi, which is an excellent hotel. However for this family holiday we stayed at Casa Lara which is a delightful apartment very very close to the beach, many affordable restaurants & passenger ferry services to Amalfi and Sorrento. The facilities have the warmth of a typical Italian home. Casa Lara is situated on the second floor at the end of a small square. The large tranquil balcony / dining area gives you a view of the square below and yet is shielded from vie by the beautiful Bougainvillea, Rose & Hibiscus plants. Lara ( the owner ) has a real gem here.
