Location and Surrounding Area. Il Nido is a bright, sunny apartment near Positano with fabulous views across the bay. Positano has been home to intellectuals, artists and the international elite, who have wandered up and down the picturesque labyrinth of stone steps and pastel-coloured houses for centuries. The town today offers sophisticated shopping, charming restaurants, breathtaking views, several glamorous beaches and juicy lemons in every shape and form! Meandering through the arches and passageways, you'll find local shoemakers who will make
you a pair of customized sandals and the majolica tiled dome of the Church of Santa Maria Assunta can be seen from almost every corner of the town. Villa Oleandri is just a couple of minutes away on foot from the church.
Just off the shore of Positano are three tiny islands, Li Galli or as some people call them, Le Sireneuse. Legend has it that they were once inhabited by Parthenope and other enticing sirens who seduced passing sailors with their song. The world famous ballet dancer, Rudolf Nureyev purchased the islands and spent the last years of his life here.
Among the countless enchanting places to visit in the area, perhaps Ravello, Sorrento and Amalfi stand out for the first time visitor. Ravello, at 350 metres above sea level, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and offers both unforgettable architecture and scenic beauty. The 11th century Cathedral and Villa Cimbrone are magnificent and a summer music festival is held each in the year in the gardens of the 13th century Villa Rufolo. D.H. Lawrence wrote Lady Chatterley's Lover here and the town has been frequented over the years by the likes of Greta Garbo and Winston Churchill.
Il Nido Apartment is 32 km from Naples international airport and it is easy to get transfers to and from the airport. The apartment is about 20 minutes by car from the centre of Positano or just a 10 minute hop by water taxi. The local bus stop is only 50 m from the front door and you can catch ferries to the nearby islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida from the port at Positano. Ravello is 25 km from the house, Amalfi is 18 km along the spectacular Amalfi Coastline and Sorrento is only 17 km over the hill.
The Property. Il Nido is decorated throughout in true Mediterranean style with plenty of large windows offering stunning views over the water. The apartment sleeps up to four guests in two double bedrooms with a shared bathroom including a shower and a jacuzzi. One of the bedrooms has direct access out onto the balcony. Both bedrooms have a television in the room but with all of the splendours outside, it is doubtful you'll be watching much TV!
There is an open plan living/dining area with a large, flat screen television and well designed kitchen units. The kitchen comes fully equipped with everything you might need. French doors lead out onto the charming terrace with a panoramic dining table. Imagine the pleasure of eating al fresco by candlelight, seated under the stars as you watch the boats go by. The swimming pool is nestled into a corner and decorated with majolica tiles. When you've finished splashing around in the water, lie back on the sun loungers and soak up the Mediterranean sun. If you fancy a dip in the sea, there is free elevator service down to the area of the beach reserved for Il Nido guests. You'll find sun loungers and umbrellas down on the beach. There is also a restaurant on the beach with a spacious terrace for leisurely lunches.
