As a reminder: Ca’ P’a is this slightly weathered block you could already see peaking through the scattered houses on the steep slopes when coming from Sorrento. The eye first hits the dense canyon of houses of Positano, then glides over the loose cluster that is Praiano. This is exactly where you will find Ca’ P’a – given that you know the Amalfitana already. After asking your way through the village and climbing 127 tall and worn-out, slippery steps you will reach the nondescript wooden gate and with it …paradise – at least this is what everybody has to admit. An unparalleled view on the infinite sea with the gorgeous garden in the foreground. On the right, the picture is framed by the houses descending from Positano and on the horizon you can spot Capri’s Faraglioni. At sunset a last glossy ray flashes trough the hole in these rocks towards Ca’ P’a. Quite unforgettable.
The rough cupolas canopying the rooms in the house and the waxed stone floors look as if they had been there for an eternity. De facto, the whole house has been turned inside out leaving precious objects in harmony with the very simple. A mixture, where nothing fits together – in an elegant and casual way. And as if by magic, the house has found its guests, that perfectly fit into the picture.

Anyway, Ca’ P’a is celebrating its fifth birthday. Nothing special one might think, except that we’ve now started the Ca’ P’a diaries, online: brief muddled stories of which nobody knows yet, what they will be good for one day. If you feel the vocation to share something, welcome to
