I a headed back to Residence Alcione for my fourth 2-week visit. This family run establishment provides the same incredible views as the very expensive and famous hotel across the street - at 1/4 the price - with a larger terrace. Do opt for the wonderful large continental breakfast each day - and have it on your terrace. My large bed sitting room, large bathroom (equipped with a whirlpool tub), kitchenette, and very large terrace (with a full electric retractable awning) were kept spotless by the friendly, polite staff. The owners' shop Idillio has some of the most beautiful and well made clothes in Positano - I have 4 year old dresses that look new after many washes. The owners/managers speak English as does the staff in the shop downstairs. The mini fridge is plenty large enough for bottled water, fruit, cheese, olives and juice. After the large continental breakfast each day, I eat very light at lunch, and then go out to dinner. I bring my Kindle loaded with books and a small DVD player for amusement. The local bus is 50 steps from the front door. The walk to the beach takes about 10 minutes. Residence Alcione is perfectly located -- and well within walking distance to Positano's best restaurants. I am a solo traveler and always feel very safe here.
