Holiday House Gilda is a treasure. Their staff was helpful and welcoming. The rooms are beautiful and overlook the Mediterranean. They have a wonderful patio where breakfast is served, and where people can just hang out. There is a path to beach that is surprisingly uncrowded (it is rocky, but so it the main beach in Positano). My family really... More

Thanks for a relaxing stay! We only wish we could have stayed for longer. Rosa was very helpful and all the other staff were welcoming. Room was clean and with fabulous views! Would recommend to couples and families.

My husband and I have just spent an idyllic week at this very charming B&B and wish we could have stayed forever. From the moment Gilda and Guiseppe welcomed us like family we felt relaxed and ready for our Positano adventure. The view from the patio and breakfast room was magnificent and our lovely rustic apartment provided the same spectacular... More

We stayed at Holiday House Gilda while vacationing in Positano in May along with our son and friend. The hospitality was amazing- Gilda, her daughter and also helper were so accommodating. The location is idea- a short walk into town and the views were beyond belief. Also, the breakfast they served on the patio was excellent. We cannot say enough... More

Where to start... You forget all your worries and troubles of the day once you see the view (and OH, what a view) from your private balcony of Positano. Breathtaking is all I can say! And besides the view, the staff at the B&B were the best of the whole trip. They are so warm, nice, and hospitable. Giuseppe greeted... More

Nice setting by the road. We had only stayed 1 night, but the approach of the family was 1st class. We just came up on the way to Positano for a one night stay. They welcomed us and saw that tired and offered expresso from the house to have a rest. If you are looking for a true family run... More

Rosa was extremely friendly and helpful and spoke perfect English. She made wonderful recommendations for restaurants, arranged for them to pick us up, and gave us lots of tips to make... More
