Positano - new digs & shopping

For our second week here at La Tagliata we have moved into the bigger of the two suites that they have -  Le Boticelle.

It was only when we came down in the small lift into the private wine cellar
that the choice of name became clear!.

We have to walk through the private cellar to reach the inside door of Le Botticelle,
 ducking beneath the salami sausages and provolone cheeses
 and skirting the large wine barrel where the wine cellar register is kept.

View from the in room jacuzzi!

There is also a door which leads outside to our private terrace
which is about twice the size of the one up at Limonella where we spent last week.

We can look across and down the valley to the town of Positano below 
where I spent a lovely hour or so browsing clothes shops yesterday afternoon!

Positano style!

Linking to Mosaic Monday with Mary @the little red house
stop by for a visit if you get the chance to see Mary's wonderful photographs.


  1. Oh Maggie just catching up with your post's over the last few days. It looks wonderful.
    Rain seems to be every where at moment, just had a couple of nights away in Nantes . Enjoyed some very good French food and wine.

    Hope you continue to have a great time.

  2. HI Maggie. Oh wow that looks great. And that entrance through the cellar with the salami sausages, delicious. Hope the weather is getting better there. Here we have to wait more days for that.

  3. The views you have are stunning, Maggie! I am so enjoying your pictures!


  4. Wow! Wow! WOW! Your view is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. !!! And that is a pretty cool cellar too. What memories you will have from this trip.

  5. Maggie,

    I hope you bought some new clothes to go with that marvelous new hair style! I travel vicariously with you and Jackie!


  6. And the rain stopped! Yay!! It's gorgeous!

  7. But now - - - show us your room, OK??? All this entering and going out on the terrace and viewing the water from the jacuzzi is making me want to see the ROOM ITSELF!

  8. Gorgeous digs - just don't sample the wine too often - rather tempting having it right outside the door!!!!

    Have fun - show us the clothes if you bought any - they all look delightful in the shop.

  18. Morning, sorry I am late leaving comments as I had Harry all yesterday. Hope Roger is better, sadly the weather probably isn't as it has been rain almost non stop here. How lovely though to sit on the terrace,(I hope it is covered)and see that great view from the Jacuzzi!
    Enjoy the rest of your holiday, Jackie.

    Your new digs look incredible, I bet the smell is lovely! I've been following your blog for a few months now, and really enjoy it. Thanks for sharing!

    I just started my own blog about my french adventures, with the awful rain we have here at the moment I so wish I was back in Normandy! Less than 98 days to wait, enjoy your holiday and keep sharing your little corner of the world for those desperate to get back!

    I'm totally in love with your new digs!!!
