Ca Pa was recommended to us for a base for a group of friends. We took the entire villa plus 2 new garden rooms in early May. This is an excellent time of year as the crowds and insects are almost non existent. Always a good idea to have some insect repellant though I suppose.
First, let's sort the steps, there are a lot but if you want to avoid steps then a spectacular coastline of steep cliff faces like the Amalfi coast is not for you anyway. There are a lot of steps to the villa and the water but they are really a health bonus for most and can be managed fine by just taking it slow if you are out of condition.
The good news is that you could get to the villa and not leave for a week. The food was spectacular and outshone our fine dining at the #2 Tripadvisor restaurant. There is an honesty bar that is well stocked and worked out surprisingly good value.
Patrizia did a fantastic job looking after all 14 of us. The rooms were great and full of charm. The new garden rooms were about 10 paces from the main dining area and, being new, a bit more modern and smaller than the main house rooms.
We had no porter issues despite arriving late probably because we had Patrizia organise the car for us so the driver knew we needed after hours porters.
We hired a boat for a day which is the easiest and quickest way to see the Amalfi. At the other extreme, and being unsatisfied with the 190 steps to the road, we did the Walk of the Gods from Praiano to Positano which our fitbits told us included some 250 floors of elevation. If you are up for it, it is spectacular and beautiful.
We came to relax with friends and found the perfect place.
