Welcome to Positano

We arrived in Positano on Saturday after a 5 hour drive from Tuscany to the warmest, friendliest greeting from the staff at Eden Roc Hotel.  We aren’t staying at the hotel but have rented a villa they own called Villa Greta.  The villa is situated just along the main road, 10 minutes easy walk from the hotel.

When we arrived there were fresh flowers on the table, wine and fresh fruit in the fridge and a home made cake on the bench. A lovely touch by the hotel we thought.

Compared to our cottage in Tuscany the villa is huge and everyone is enjoying the additional space and various mod cons – like a dishwasher.

The dogs have recovered from the drive south and have settled in.  They already bark at everyone walking past on the street – much to the delight of the locals.

We normally arrive at Positano later in July but the good news is that the weather is great and the temperature is around 30 degrees.  The town doesn’t feel packed and the superyachts are just starting to arrive in the bay.  The bonus is that we can use the hotel facilities – pool, bar, restaurant, did I mention the pool, etc – so we have the best of both worlds.
