Farewell beautiful Amalfi coast!

One of my favourite poems written by the great Pablo Neruda; a resident of Capri in 1952 (albeit in exile at Italian historian Edwin Cerio‘s villa )

 And now you are mine . Read by Andy Garcia & Julia Roberts

My friend Maree gave me her antique video copy of Il Postino to watch when there were still video players to watch them on! I have her to thank for my love affair with this island and the poetry it inspired.



Oh, and if you need a great place to stay in Positano I can’t recommend Casa Matteo (Tosca) enough. A bare feet and kaftan kinda place with knock out views, french doors and a gentle sea breeze; a place where antiques and original oil paintings mix with white-washed walls and Negroni’s at sunset.

Marco and Maria were simply belisimmo!

We booked through our friend, the beautiful Amanda from Positano Dreaming—a gem when it comes to personalised service and insider knowledge! Thankyou Amanda!

Until next year!
