I expect that by now most people have heard about the rubbish problem in Naples. (If not read about it here.) Luckily Positano is in the region of Salerno, and has escaped the problem this time round. We went to Naples the other day and as soon as we left the coast road and crossed over the regional divide this caught my eye:

In Naples whole pavements were covered in rubbish. How are they ever going to clear it all I wonder:


OK, enough ugliness, heres a pretty picture of the sea to end with:

  1. Do you have the anti-fungal paint on your walls? We switched to it and it did help a bit. Still got mould but it grows a bit slower!

  2. Maybe the hunks downstairs (who we still haven't seen pictures of) will air out your home while your away. Good luck with that! BTW, beautiful pic of Pos.

  4. The less glamorous side! Mold is considered a health problem and not really covered by home insurance here in the U.S. Wow, I hope you can do something. Thanks for all the great photos that you share with us on your blog. And have a great time away! --Annette

  5. Wow, I've never seen anything like that! But then again, we have an average of about 12-15% humidity here.

    I agree with Lucy - the downstairs hunks should help out while you're gone!

  6. l can't believe the rubbish on the side of the road it's horrible, l really hope for the people in Campagnia that it is sorted out very soon, it poses so many environmental and health risks.
    As for the mould l had one of those climatizzatore things giulia mentioned and it seemed to work although it did fill up really fast with water, l was forever emptying the thing. l would definately suggest you get someone to check into the apartment.
    That last picture is gorgeous!

  7. Niki, a dehumidifier and plastic over the windows should along with extra insulating strips take care of your humidity problem perhaps you can get some in England if not available in town. The plastic over the windows should be tight you can tape all the way around on the inside to make it sealed and shrink it tight by using a hair dryer.Mold is very bad for Poppy to breathe in and can cause chest infections and ear and nose ones too. Hope these solutions help with your ongoing battle with mold.

  8. Wow, those first few pictures really bring down the opening of your blog. And super yikes...Mold can lead to very serious health trouble, especially that thick. Time to move.

  9. First I want to wish you a happy new year. Better late than never, right?

    Sorry about the mold problem! I can't even imagine what to do! Good luck with it!

    When I was in Spain on vacation, the Naples problem was all over the news. I felt like a parent who was hearing what her naughty child was up to back home! heheheheh! I hope they get it together soon!

  10. It sounds like you need a dehumidifier! You will be amazed at the buckets of water it will collect from the air. You're lucky with the garbage though!
