Where I stayed
Another 40 minute drive down the hair-raising bends on the Almafi drive coastal road sees us arrive at our next hotel for the next couple of nights. The Palazzo Murat Another fantastic hotel with coastal views in the amazing small hillside town of Positano.
The drive should be amazing...
Maybe a posh restaurant meal tonight, or a wander down through the winding narrow streets to find a small italian restaurant..
Woke up to amazing sunshine again and had an amazing breakfast sitting in the rooftop restaurant with 500 other excitable Italians !
At 11am (yes a very slow breakfast - but who wouldn't with this view) we had a quick wander down to the harbour and then set off in the car along the sea drive.
Stopping at the village of Almafi itself for lunch (well ice cream !!) and then continuing along the Amalfi drive towards Positano. The drive was spectacular with hairpin bends, views along the coast to die for, sheer drops - I was just glad with thee small roads it was not the height of summer !! Every car that came the other way was a squeeze (panic attack at the lorries and minibuses !)
Eventually we wound our way down some near impassable side streets in positano and came accross our car park. Leaving our luggage ( and car keys) we ambled through the small passageways filled with amazing shops we found our oasis of an hotel....
Such is life when you get your car parked and luggage is delivered to your room !!!
Wow after yesterday this is amazing - a fantastic room with huge balcony overlooking the garden and in the distance the pool area. With lemon, clementine and what looks like grapefruit trees within touching distance of the balcony this is amazing.
Bliss and two nights here !
A relaxing afternoon sitting on the balcony with a bottle (or two) of wine and a swim
In the outside pool - now this is a holiday unlike our Chinese experience !
