Apparently, the best way to get over holiday blues is to book another holiday. With Autumn upon us we took to AIR BNB for a last minute get-a-way.
Having visited Italy before, I knew it was the perfect place for a week of good food, beautiful sights and the last of the summer sunshine.
After deciding on the highly recommended Amalfi Coast, we hopped on a place and checked in with our host, Michele.
After coffee and croissants for breakfast, we made plans to visit the town of Positano.
Winding our way around steep coastal roads, past lemon stalls and sea side hotels we made it to the cliff side village.
Positano, arguably the most picturesque and photogenic Italian town, is iconic for the beautiful houses which tumble down the cliff, to the sea in a cascade of sun-bleached peach, pink and terracotta.
We began at the top, making our way down its steep streets and steps lined with wisteria draped hotels, restaurants and fasionable boutiques.
As the coast came into sight we found the centre. Bustling with sunbathers eating pizza on the beach, gelato shops and chic women waiting to board the boat over to Amalfi and Capri.
The perfect place to enjoy an Apperol Sprtiz and do some people watching.
John Steinbeck when visiting Positano in 1953 wrote: ‘Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and then becomes beckoningly real after you have gone’
The only problem is getting back up to the top!
