Positano ... This dramatically beautiful town clinging to the cliff face as if about to cascade into the turquoise waters below, has become synonymous with beach fashion. Positano’s elegant shop windows are full of displays of brightly coloured robes, bikinis, bags, and Bermuda shorts all made in cool linen, gauze and cotton. Positano is now home not only to skilled tailors but also to master cobblers, indeed, this is the place where to abandon your shoes and replace them with a pair of hand crafted sandals, made to measure whilst you wait. Positano is also the perfect spot to pick up that special coral cameo or even to order that oh so glamorous wedding dress!
Protected from the Northern winds by the Lattari Mountains, Positano has a mild and dry climate. The structure of the town is very original; its buildings cling, in tiers to the rock face. The small houses, all huddling on top of each other, so characteristic of Positano, form the subject of endless photos. The vibrant colours; the white of the buildings, forming a perfect canvas for the bright flowers which decorate the houses, and the small artisans', shops with their multihued cloths, present the visitor with a vista which is almost difficult to believe. Then there is the smell of the leather used for making sandals, and the restaurants specialised in fish dishes, and the bustle of every day life... Positano is a must to be seen and a top destination for your sailing vacation and your luxury yacht charter on the Italian sea.
