Villa Eunice is located in one of the most beautiful panoramic areas of Positano:
the villa is an old house built on the top of that high rocky spur overlooking
the sea and which seems to “sustain” the main and most picturesque part of
Positano, photographed and printed in every postcard.
The inhabitants of the place call this part of town “La Pigna” (pine cone) due
to its round shape and to the fact that all the houses overlap one another just
as on the shelf of a pineapple. The ‘Pigna’ separates the Spiaggia Grande (Large
Beach) from the beach of Fornillo, and it features a flat summit shaped as a
small triangle, the Punta Reginella. Villa Eunice is built on the top of the ‘Pigna’:
once you have arrived on its terraces, you will feel as if in the first row to
watch a marvelous show, in this case the scenery of Positano. You will be able
to enjoy a breathtaking view of the sea, the town, and the coast.
In order to reach the villa from the main street of Positano, you will have to
walk for about 5 meters (about 16 feet) along a pedestrian street with no need
to climbing any steps. 50 meters (about 164 feet) away you will find the bus
stop of the local shuttle which takes you to the pedestrian area downtown, where
the beach and all shopping streets are. Also 50 meters (about 164 feet) away is
the bus stop of shuttles which take you to Sorrento and Amalfi.

shops, bars, and restaurants.
Villa Eunice has two enthralling terraces overlooking the sea. The first and
largest one lies in front of the living-room and the kitchen. It is a
terrace-garden caressed by the sun all day long, placed facing the blue of the
sea, and rich in flowers and terracotta vases where lush red and yellow hibiscus
The terrace ends in a scenic overlook whose three sides lean over the sea and
the whole landscape just as the prow of a ship. When leaning from the terrace,
you will be able to enjoy a breathtaking view of the entire bay of Positano: you
will have the endless skyline of sea and blue sky ahead; and below you, the
Spiaggia Grande (Large Beach) on one side, and the Duomo (cathedral), the town
surrounding it, and the enchanting coast of the beach of Fornillo with its
medieval watchtower by the sea on the other.
This part of the terrace is surmounted by a romantic wisteria pergola under
which you will find masonry benches, deck chairs, and a large table decorated
with colorful terracotta: it will be your favorite place to relax outdoors
during the day and spend magical hours dining under the stars, when the moon
glows above the sea and all the lights along the coast are lit…
